my nissan 720 4x4 king cab picup wan in dire need of a carburator rebuild and these guys at the mechanic inc jumped all over it and told me any and all things that may go wrong in the future.ie: thermostat,clutch,intake manifold gasket,etc. I am a pretty compitent mechanic my self with no time to practice but these guys knew more about my truck than i did. which was amazing. they are located on the corner of comanche and morris.

I was visiting in Albuquerque and needed to leave the next day. They diagnosed my car's problem, accommodated my repair needs and I left on my schedule. They were friendly, informative, and apparently competent. The only slight negative is that their shop is small, oily and grease coated. There were some greasy shoe marks on my carpet. My understanding is that many engineers who work at Sandia Laboratories leave their cars there for repair. If you're in a bind in Albuquerque, I recommend them.

They seem honest to me-- several times they've said it didn't need work (for instance, they were honest about how worn down the brakes were). Their prices are a bit high, but I went to them anyway when I lived nearby because I trusted them to not totally scam me.

Both my daughter and I have used The Mechanic on our Chevy Suburban, old Nissan 300ZX, and Toyota 4Runner. We are extremely happy with their honesty and prices.

I learned of The Mechanic years ago when selling our van that had recently been repaired. I advertised I would pay for an inspection on request of the buyer; one buyer recommended The Mechanic. They found the recently replaced windshield leaked, and the rear differential still had problems (I couldn't hear it). They have diagnosed problems and made repairs where a cheap component failed when many other shops would have charged for for a more expensive component. In one case, the thermal fuse ($10), and not a new alternator ($200). They also repaired my emergency brake a second time for free when something broke after the first repair. I can't say enough about the honesty of these guys. Oh, in reference to another comment, busy auto garages are just greasy and oily.

Regarding, "They complete the work in a timely manner:" I was recently surprised when they had to keep my car overnight. In the past 25 years, I've owned 3 cars (a Mazda, a Datsun, a Honda)and have taken each of them to The Mechanic. I doubt that I've had to wait beyond their estimated time on more than 3 occasions, if that many. Regarding, "They respond well when they screw something up:" I can't recall any time that they screwed anything up. Chuck Lutheran, the owner, is a man of high integrity and a strong work ethic. He is patient and thorough in giving explanations and recommendations. He also keeps my budget in mind, telling me which repairs/replacements can wait and for how long.
