HENRY is the best-kept secret in LA. If you meet him, you'll see what I'm talking about. I'm spilling the beans, cuz I know how hard it can be to find a good mechanic. Henry was great with my '89 Honda Accord, but as far as I know, he specializes in most types of cars. The first time I took a car in to Henry was when I was used- car shopping. I am leery of all mechanics by nature, and for good reason: if you were a 20-something female, with little car knowledge, you'd be the same way. Well, everything he told me was true--the car needed a few repairs, but overall, it was a great buy. Three years later, I can say he was right on. New timing belt, brake shoes, a couple of hoses...that's my whole repair history, in a nutshell. Still, Henry has always been willing to check out the car for little noises and gliches--real or imagined--so I can sleep at night. These checks have been free of charge, unless he finds something--and his shop will drive you to work, if you need it. When Henry's super-busy, he'll still make time to see your car some time that day or the following, if you plead lightly. THE JUICE: Henry never recommends an unnecessary repair. In fact, he's dissuaded me more than once from spending the extra money. The fact is, Henry and I have established an awesome customer- mechanic rapport based on trust--tried and true. If you're testing your mechanic's loyalty, ask yourself this: Would he call you on the phone to make sure he had replaced a valve cap? Henry did. The day he had replaced some hoses, he was unsure if he put one of the caps back on. When I brought the car back in, we were both happy: Henry was happy because it turned out that he had secured it properly the first time. I was happy because I had found a mechanic who was willing to place my personal safety and satisfaction over risking the embarassment of admitting he was human. If that's not caring, then I don't know what is! Giving up Henry was one of the hardest things I had to do when I left LA. Leaving LA was one of the hardest things I had to do because I had to give up Henry. I miss Henry. If you go to him, tell him I said "hi"! Diana Gilbert Dallas, TX

They take cash or credit, no checks! Also, Henry takes the time to look at everything himself, no matter who on his staff does the work.

Sidle's is an excellent repair shop. They are not the cheapest in town, but they are reasonable for the area. And they are the best shop I've seen as far as explaining things to you and getting the work done in a reasonable time frame.
