I thought an honest mechanic was a myth, until we started going to Al's. He's always been honest with us, and I've heard through word of mouth that this is his normal practice of business for all his customers. He never recommends work that is above what is necessary and his prices are very reasonable. Try him once, and you'll never search for another mechanic!

Very good shop. They will not push things on you that you don't need. Good prices (recently saved $400 on a head gasket job from a nearby competitor). In fall of 2010 they expanded both their shop and hours of operation; now they also offer express oil change and a car wash. I once needed to have my heater core replaced, which entailed taking apart the dash (several hours of work). I asked Al to also replace the A/C blower motor. I wasn't sure it needed to be replaced, but it had started to make a bit of noise, and I didn't want to pay them to take apart the dash twice. I explained all that to Al. When I picked up my truck at the end of the day, Al told me that he didn't replace the blower motor after all, because it doesn't require tearing the dash apart- there's an access panel in the engine compartment. Al knew that it was a repair I could handle myself, and he knew that since it didn't need it quite yet, he could save me some money. That's good service.
