One time Ray's landlord was threatening to force him out of the lease on his garage to get a higher-paying renter. My friends and I wrote letters to the landlord telling him how wonderful Ray is and how he has an EXTREMELY loyal following. Ray is an honest mechanic and a genuinely decent person. His dad (who must be in his late 70s) hangs out at the shop with Ray.

The only other person who cared more about me safely driving my car was my dad! Mike and his mechanics (!) take the time to check things I forget, on many occassions have told me I did NOT need to go to certain expenses to safely go about my life in my car, and have caught problems early enough to fix them cheaply. (on one occasion, he told my friend he was reluctant to do the repairs, because the repairs would cost more than the vehicle would ever be worth!) To add to the bargain, the cheapest tire store in the valley is across the parking lot! The neighborhood is a bit scary, but I never spend much time there. If I come early enough, they gave me a ride to work! Compared to other places -- when I have left wondering if I have been ripped off again -- I always leave Viking Motors knowing I got great service at a great price. I recommend Viking and Mike to anyone and everyone who needs anything done with their car.

These guys are great. My ex-husband & I have taken 5 Volvos there over the past 18 years. They have all the traits you'd like in a spouse: competent, pleasant, helpful, understanding, dependable, reasonable, easy to deal with. They don't repair things that don't need it; therefore, you can believe them when they say it's time to fix something. I've had them keep two Volvos, both with over 230,000 miles (original engines), running.

They are very friendly and honest about what they can do and how much it will cost. They understand people's situations and are very reasonable about their estimates/costs.

I went to Viking Motor Body because the front bumper on my Golf was loose. Ray took a look at it and said he could fix it the same day for $35. Then, believe it or not, he proceeded to fix it the same day and only charged me $35. I've never had anyone get work done that fast (without an appointment) or for such a reasonable rate. The dealer we go to would charge more than that just to talk to us. Ray was so nice, and such a pleasure to deal with, I almost wished my car was in worse shape so I could take it back again.
