In this age of rip offs, scams, and con artists, it's so refreshing to find someone like Sonny Di who is not in the business just to make a quick buck. He takes pride in what he does, does an excellent job, and doesn't charge you an arm and a leg for it. I never have to worry that if I bring my car in for a tune up he'll find that it needs a new transmission or the engine rebuilt ( as so often is the case at a dealership). Sonny is so busy he wouldn't have time to do all that anyway. He lives by the rule, "If it ain't broke don't fix it", which considering I don't know diddly about cars, is very reassuring. But you can be assurred that if it is broke, Sonny will fix it, at the least possible cost and trauma to the customer. He is fair, honest, and trustworthy. Bet you thought there weren't any more around like that. (I'm almost afraid to tell anybody about him, I want to keep him all to myself!)

I had to move from Delaware to a retirement community in Concordville. All at once there was no way to do any of the work I used to do on my own vehicles. I found several favorable reviews about Sonny D's and started there. The reviews were wrong - they said Sonny's was good. He is much better than good. Two areas stand out; First he is an excellent mechanic. When he works on your vehicle he acts as if it is his vehicle. If there is something about your vehicle it is fixed, repaired, replaced. Stuff gets done and done well. Secondly - he is honest. There is no pumping up a repair or bill inflating. Sonny will give you an honest estimate and do his best to stay within it. Many times the bill will come in at less than his estimate. As far as 'm concerned I'll pay whatever he proposes. He also treats his customers with respect. It's almost a cliche that women know little about automotive things so I was an interested spectator while Sonny explained the repair he was doing to a person until there was satisfaction about the problem. One last item; I had a failure of the exhaust system on my Camry. Sonny diagnosed the problem in about 20 seconds. As a matter of interest, I went to a nearby Toyota agency. They had a two tier price for a new system. Top dollar was about $1200.00 and change. They also suggested an "aftermarket" assembly for $700.00 and change. Sonny had estimated $300.00 and change. That's what it came in for! So, if you want an excellent and honest auto repair, try Sonny D's. PS: He is also at home with my Dodge Ram pickup (Stick Shift) that has a million horsepower Cummins diesel. This guy is good!
