Our experience with Matt's Garage: On a Friday afternoon our 1991 minivan broke down about a mile from the shop. We phoned, and Matt said he was busy but could look at it at 5 pm. We got there at 4:30 or so. He immediately gave it a thorough examination, including a road test--about an hour's work--and was unable to find a problem. This did not surprise us, since the car has a history of mysterious (rare) seizures that disappear before competent help can be found. What did surprise us was that he refused to charge us, since he said he hadn't fixed anything, and told us that, tho he's not usually open on weekends, he would be there that Saturday, in case the problem recurred. (We were camping nearby.) Our experience does not prove his competence, though we mentioned Matt's Garage to a park ranger, who said he'd heard good things about it. But Matt treated us very generously at the end of a long hot Friday, tho it was evident that we were not local. One of us is an attractive young woman (my daughter) but we were both much the worse for wear that afternoon, and I have a strong impression that he would have been equally decent to anyone in need.
