John suggested that instead of paying some $300 in labor plus parts for my blown heater core, that he just re-route the hose; now, I wouldn't have any heat, but who cares? And it was done very quickly; and everyone there is very pleasant. No qualms about recommending them!

Brothers John & Jim Hower are carrying on their father's first rate tradition of mechanical services.

John and his buddies were big-time water ski racers and built some really cool go-boats!

Have taken all our cars there for over 20 years and have always been more than satisfied. Couldn't ask for a better repair place, or better guys than the Hower brothers.

John and his crew are great! John does the scheduled work he considers necessary given his experience with the particular make, model and year -- and defers some of it to the next maintenance time (which I like).

Have been there 4 times. They've always been honest, fair, and dedicated to soliving the problem in the most practical way. They act like you'd imagine your ideal mechanic would.

Used them on my 1996 Toyota Camry Wagon which I have now bequeathed to my college son. The first time was for a repair originally estimated with the Toyota dealer at a much higher price. They explained and fixed the problem and saved me money as well.
