I've been taking my cars to Nicholl's for over 20 years. They are the most honset and competent mechanics I have had service my cars. Even though they have changed management over the years, the service level has remained top caliber. They are very reasonable ($) and only fix what is wrong. They "nail" the problem usually first-time, every-time. I drive well out of my way to take my car problems to them. Highly recommended. For instance, the dealer told me I needed a new power steering unit ($800). Instead, Nicholl's fixed the hose leak for around $35. Loss of coolant recently? Did I have a loss internal to the engine? No, Nicholl's repaired the tightened the hose clamp I couldn't see. Etc., etc.

I found this mechanic through these files when I knew I was moving to Arlington VA for my new job. I have a 1984 Lincoln Towncar that needed to be fixed up and tuned up for the safety and emissions inspection process (a new experience for this Oklahoma car). They took me in on Saturdays and fixed all that needed attention and more for a great and fair price... and... it passed the entire inspection process on the first try! Incredible.

Not only are these guys excellent mechanics who charge a fair price, they are very kind and thoughtful as well. When I've been unable to arrange a ride to pick up my car, they've actually come to my house, picked me up, and taken me back to my car!

Great to have an honest, reasonably-priced within a 5-minute walk, esp as the 3-min. shop is so overpriced and unfriendly. Chief mechanic has worked with me to figure out economic ways to keep the declining 18-year-old Subaru on the road without putting much money into it. Has had good suggestions for the VW, too.

We moved to northern Virginia a year ago. We found Nicholl's through your list and have been very satisfied. Oscar and Mauricio have been honest and have always worked around our schedule. They work on Saturdays, too. Their shop isn't fancy to look at, but we are very glad we found them. They are keeping our two 96 Camrys doing just fine.

I first found Nicholls on cartalk.com about 4 to 5 years ago. I was so impressed with them, I was telling all my friends and family to take their cars there. My car is 16 years old, but only 125,000 miles on it. Plus I keep up the maintenance on it. But it was getting old. In April I took it to them to get an evaluation whether it was worth putting a little more money into it. or look into a new car. They said do this, this and this. And I quote, "It will run for another 100,000 miles." I did what they said, $1,100 later. Then, two weeks after that. I had to be towed to Merchant tire to have a new battery and battery cables installed. $195. On the first inspection they did a battery inspection and said it was fine. Then my car started making all this noise. I had to take in three more times. Two axels, four tires and new bearings. $1,200. All this money, almost $2,400. Could have gone to a new car. My car is not worth HALF what I put into it. My advice, STAY AWAY!!!
