I have been to CK twice. The first time was for a simple oil change. At that time I asked them to take a look at my brakes. They did so without charging me, and gave me an estimate of what the repair cost would be. Five months later I returned to get the brakes taken care of. I brought in the estimate (which they had provided a hard copy of) and left the car with them. Kevin, the guy who I talked to, was very professional. He said he would call first if they needed to do any additional work on the brakes. Sure enough, I needed new front brake pads. He gave me estimates for two different brands, asked if I wanted to go ahead with the pads, and gave me an approximate finish time for the work. When I picked up the car (very soon thereafter) he showed me the breakdown on the bill, and then proceded to surprise me by saying, "I don't know what our guys saw when we gave you the estimate on the rear brakes back in January, but they look fine. You won't need work on them for quite a while. I couldn't bring myself to charge you for work that you didn't need to have done." He also deducted the charge for brake alignment that he gave in the estimate, saying that it was part of the package with the pad replacement. All in all I was very impressed with the quality of service, not to mention the speed, of CK's mechanics. In both cases I was able to drop the car off and pick it up the same day I called. Kevin's professionalism is a big plus too, explaining in detail the work to be done, the recommended work, and the cost (which seemed pretty competitive).

What's more valuable than an honest mechanic? (Remember that Seinfeld episode?) Not a lot. The guys are straightforward, they stick to their estimates, if something happens they're forthcoming and they deal with it like professionals, and above and beyond that they're genuinely nice, which all makes for a little peace of mind at the end of the day, even if I did just shell out a few hundred bucks. If you own a car you absolutely need to know a good mechanic and now I do.

These guys are straightforward human beings - good guys! I had a chance to buy a Jag at a good price. When I asked, the only response was 'no'. They did me a big favor! I'm not the kind of guy who likes expensive, overpriced parts & unnecessary labor. On the other hand, they keep my '87 Caravan going & I need it for work. They don't pile on when it comes to what needs to be done, and they stand behind what they do. Blue colors over blue blood.

They have always fixed my cars in a timely fashion. I even recommended them to my son who now brings his car there.
