I have had a 1971 VW Bug, 1990 Ford Taurus, 1994 and 1998 Dodge Dakota, 2004 Chevy Camaro, and a slew of other vehicles. I may have owned a parking lot of cars but I always stayed with one mechanic, Don Townsend at A & D Auto Repair and Service. Don Townsend was my mechanic while I lived in San Diego County, and after moving to the Seattle Area, I was honestly at a loss without him. The three hardest things to find in life are a kind doctor, a nimble dentist and an honest mechanic. I had found the doctor and dentist, but the honest mechanic was proving to be somewhat of a Holy Grail quest. Even after he knew he wouldn't be working on my vehicles any longer, he suggested some places to look and added some qualifications to look for in another mechanic. That is what I call an amazing experience and excellent service.

I have been using A&D for over 10 years. He is my go-to guy for all air conditioning and engine cooling (e.g. water pump) work. I also use him for front end work and miscellaneous stuff, too. It's a husband and wife business: Don does the repairs and his wife does the office stuff. The only time I had a problem was when an AC compressor he installed failed at 11-1/2 months (warrantied for one year). Even though it wasn't his "fault," he took care of that promptly and I was satisfied. I have referred three friends to his shop and they are happy customers, too.
