A friend of mine who didn't have much money coming in from the business he started when he first came to the West Chester area talked to Fran Pardo, the owner of Pardo Automotive, about getting his car inspected to meet the requirements of the Pennsylvania Vehicle SafetyInspection Requirements. He told Fran that he didn't have much money and that he didn't want to any items worked on unless it was required to meet those Safety Inspection Requirements. I am a mechanical Engineer with over 50 years experience in the engineering field, and with auto repair and maintenance of mostly my vehicles. I told Fran that I would like to have an arrangement with him whereby I would do as much of the auto R & M as I could handle from a technical, or time constraint and he agreed to work with me. Fran and his ASE Certified mechanics have the latest in diagnostic equipment and use an Internet service to provide guidance on troubleshooting. In every M & R action, Fran has taken the time to explain to me what he has found and what needs to be done to correct the problem. In 100% of the time he has correctly diagnosed and corrected the problem (a record that Tom & Ray would be happy to be able to duplicate). My son who is a Civil Engineer has also done a lot of his own auto M & R, and when I raved to him about Pardo's shop he was skeptical because of experiences he has had with auto mechanics. But he went to Fran with his first problem and experienced first hand what I had, that Fran and his crew are top notch, he is now (also) a believer.

A fellow who was a life coach who had moved down to the West Chester about 4 years ago told me he needed a PA State Safety Inspection of his car. He went into Pardo's and told Fran Pardo that he didn't have much money and wanted only the work done to meet the state's safety inspection. It was done to his satisfaction. On another occasion, he then took the car in to Pardo's and told Fran he needed some body work done ASAP, because he needed it for his business which still wasn't providing much income- he was thrilled with the work and cost. I am a mechanical engineer with over 50 years experience in the engineering field and do much of my auto repair and maintenance myself if I have the time and capability for the work in question. After hearing my friend rave about Fran Pardo, I went into his shop, told him that I would like to rely on him for the things I couldn't handle. He agreed. He has ASE Certified Mechanics,his shop is equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment,and he has an internet service that provides the latest troubleshooting documentation. In every instance where I have needed his his shop's assistance he or his mechanics have determined the repairs needed, explained what they needed to repair or replace, and did the job well. I told my son who is a civil engineer and has worked on his cars for over 25 years about my experience with Fran and his shop. He likewise found Pardo's shop to be exceptional.
