Ted Marbaker is the owner. I have been using him as my mechanic for 30 years. I followed him from his two previous employers to Colonie Garage, which he owns. Prices are reasonable and it is rare that the problem isn't fixed on the first visit. I have had several makes and models and have always been satisfied with the job done. Ted also sells used cars and I have purchased from him in the past and would recommend anyone buy a used car from him. I highly recommend this business to anyone.

A month ago I brought my car in to these guys because it was stalling out and i could not find the problem. they told me it it was a sensor AND i needed a tune up , and air filter so I just said go a head when they gave me the car back the next day (they should have been able to do it that day ) the guy there said "it drives like a brand new car" so i thought to my self omg what else is wrong - i got home open the hood and there where the instructions for how to install a air filter just jammed in to the cooling fan area which they didnt read because the air filter was not installed correctly. so the problems started again. only about a week/ 100 miles later so i figured out it was a different sensor and i replaced that and put a new battery in and it drives ok now as for going back there - they got me for $630 and didn't fix the car, and there was evidence they just don't have skill . i have heard so many good things about them I thought i was paying a premium price for premium work what i got was far from it. just to be clear because I i am not calling them thefts as much as just lousy craftsmen. go there only if you cant find some one else
