VERY responsive when called upon. Had an exhaust pipe break on the way out of town for vacation. Detoured by the shop, had the part ordered, fetched, and installed within 1 hour, and we were back on the road. Have always been able to "drop in" get a question answered, or a minor repair made on the spot. Alwayls looks for ways to find less expensive replacement parts. Honest, friendly, accurate, and thorough!

Of the dozen+ mechanics I've been to, Dan is the best. I've never met anyone who is as thorough and as honest. They've even fixed my car for free. Highly recommended.

Dan and Karen are the best. My husband operated an auto repair shop near Ministry of Transport, and since my husband passed away, I've counted on Dan to take care of my cars. I've never been disappointed. Dan is extremely skilled, honest, and kind. A tip - if you have an exotic car, Dan's your guy. I've seen cars in his shop I've never seen anywhere else. And the shop includes an art gallery! You can't go wrong here.

Found this shop in the Mechanics Files when I relocated from another state 2 years ago. Dan has always been great to work with. Several times I have called him to schedule an appointment, and he has told me how to fix the problem myself at low or no cost.
