Jude Carpency has been our main mechanic for 30 years. He is skilled, knowledgeable, honest and reliable. Jude works on all types of cars.( Volvo, Honda, Toyota, Mazda) We trust him implicitly. We highly recommend him to you.

Carpency's has always been top notch for me. I can't think of a single thing to complain about, and I've always felt like I was dealt with fairly and that the prices were reasonable. Couldn't recommend them more strongly.

Took my car here for the first time to half a simple throttle adjustment and Oil change. I was qouted $250 for the job. Went to pick my car up and they handed me a bill for $330. I live half a block up the street from this place and will never go there again. There are three other mechanics within a few blocks. I would rather take my car to a local blind monkey than here. Stay Away!!!

I moved to Fountain Hill 18 years ago, and Carpency's was 2 blocks from my house. So, for my first repair, I gave them a shot, and I haven't gone anywhere since. I have found them to always be reasonable, timely, honest, and competent. One time, on my 2006 Mazda Tribute, my alternator needed to be replaced. This is normally a repair I would do on my own, the placement of the alternator in this car is unusual, and difficult to access (near the firewall, under the engine). I asked them for an estimate (showing them where the alternator was so they were well aware of what they were getting into). They estimated 3 hours of labor. It ended up taking 8 hours of labor, but they stuck to the original estimate, telling me that they had underestimated and they'll chalk this up to a learning experience, as they had never replaced an alternator in this model vehicle. I have other similar experiences. Highly recommend.
