We have taken our cars to Al Corb for more than 15 years. He has always been very careful to be honest and fair. He always contacts us to discuss any costs before he spends a dime, and he never goes over his estimates. Even so, we usually pay less than our friends, mainly because he doesn't do "extra" work that isn't needed. His approach is always to explain the needed repair, and then offer possible ways to fix it. He always prefers to start with the cheapest fix, but he explains why you may want a more expensive option. So, in one case, we had an older Honda Accord with a cylinder very slightly out of true that was missing occasionally, especially when it was starting up. Al explained that it was caused by the car sitting unused outdoors in very bad winter weather for more than a month. To fix it, he said, and I quote, "Well, you can get the engine block rebored for about $800, but if it was me, I'd put in a little specially made gasket that costs about 8 dollars and add a quart of oil every four to six weeks. The little gasket pulls the head of the spark plug back so that it won't get oil on it, and it won't miss anymore. When you sell the car, you have to tell the next buyer about the problem, but I doubt that he'd care either. I can't see spending $800 to fix a problem on a car you'll only have for a couple more years. It won't get worse and a case of oil is cheap." Of course, he was right. The little gasket worked fine, and the oil was cheap. When we sold the car 18 months later, the buyer was in total agreement. We even threw in a case of oil! We happened to see the buyer again about two years later, and she'd just bought a new case of oil - and was still very happy with the Honda. That's one example - there have been a number over the years. We've reccomended Al many times to other friends and people we know - and all have been very happy.

Al Corb (owner) has assisted me in keeping my Ford F150 pickup (120,000 miles now) in top running condition. As I use it daily in my business and cannot afford much down time, Al has done a great job providing quick, quality turnaround. Over the past 3 years, Corb's Automotive has replaced the brakes, shocks, heater coil and radiator hoses, and a major engine tune up. I've never had to return for a followup repair, and it runs better now than when I bought it. Thanks Al!

Really like working with Al Corb. He has worked on my husbands trucks, my cars, my childrens cars. He is always very consciencious and does good work. Anyone that works so hard and is so honest deserves to take Saturdays off. Wouldn't take my car anywhere else.
