I have had some bad experiences with mechanics in the past. I cannot tell you just how glad I am to have found Brysons garage. The folks there are just honest good people and really take good care of your car. I cant imagine ever going somewhere else.

I had a clunker truck that I loved. Bryson's was always able to repair my truck at an affordable rate. Sadly, I sold the truck. It's probably still running and will never die.

I switched mechanics and started using Bryson's when I was a neighbor to the owner. They fixed my pickup (the Ford-made Mazda B4000) for much less than others were charging and it has run well since. They also fixed and inspected a Volvo I was selling for next to nothing. They even saved me money by advising me not to replace a broken, non-essential part b/c any replacement on such an old car wouldn't last more than several months anyway. You can see that they are well-liked in the community b/c they are always busy. I highly recommend them. And there is a bus stop nearby on Maybank Hwy and another on Wappoo Drive.

I had a rusted brake line due to buying the car from Syracuse NY. The guy across the street from Brysons said, "$1,000 maybe more. All the brake lines need to be replaced, yada,yada,yada..." Brysons confirmed that the lines were not so good in general but replaced the bad sections, spliced into the good sections and charged me $323. First time I used Brysons. Got the rec from a neighbor. I'll use them again for sure!

Had our 1991 Prelude towed into Bryon's shop. The car had been sitting for about two years since it wouldn't start one day and we didn't have time to get it looked at. They had it up and running with some wiring repairs and and new starter relay and alternator in just a couple of days. We also had them replace the leaking power steering pump and replace the warped front brake rotors. All that and an oil change was about a third of what it would have cost at the Honda dealership. It ran perfectly for about a week and the battery light started flickering. Dropped it off and they fixed a loose connector on the alternator and had it ready in about two hours. They also noticed that one tire was dry rotted and recommended we get that replaced. So our good old Prelude is safely back on the road. Great guys to work with, and they are honest and don't rip you off. We still need to get the AC fixed on this car and we will take it back to Bryon's when we are ready to get it fixed.

I read others comments here and took a chance on Bryson's. Had A/C suddenly not cooling, and I am one loath to take anything to a dealer unless no way around it. Bryson's could have told me the compressor, orifice and drier was shot, because, although I do most of my own auto repairs, I don't know air conditioning troubleshooting. The repair required low pressure sensor and R-134 charge, for which the bill was a quite reasonable $150. The Bryson family has been helping locals with honest service for many years and can now count me as a happy and future customer.

I've written an earlier positive comment, and this is about another great experience with Bryson's in December 2013. A few months ago, I came to ownership of a pristine, 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis w/24K, little old lady (mother-in-law) miles on it. Soon after, I noticed a slight, but distinct "whaa whaa whaa" rolling noise from the rear that rose and fell with wheel speed. Being a retired industrial mechanic/electrician, I suspected that this was bearing related. Noting over the next few weeks that this was getting louder, I asked Bryson's owner Robbie to offer his opinion. After a test ride and putting the car on the rack, we agreed one of the rear outboard axle bearings was bad. We decided to change both of the outboard bearings because failure at such a low mileage might be due to a bad lot of bearings used Mercury. Robbie found one in bad shape and the other appeared pristine. The axle on the bad side had very minor wear, and was polished. Unfortunately, neither Robbie or I knew at the time that Mercurys in that year had some low quality axles installed (lack of heat treating). Thus the noise returned soon after the repairs were made, due to the defective axle. I supplied a new axle, and Robbie immediately honored his warranty on the bearing work, and replaced the axle and the bearing at no cost to me. My satisfaction with the level of service, integrity and honesty of Bryson's is AAA1 plus.
