Joe's about the most honest, friendliest, "explaining-est" car mechanic I have ever experienced. And he does great work! Owner of a clean and well equipped shop, Joe never overcharges, and cares for your car as if it were his own. I've been using him for a year and a half now, but at least five other people in my office have bruoght their cars to him for more than five years with complete satisfaction.

Joe is very friendly and honest. He explained things well. Some mechanics told me I need a complete brake work. Joe told me the brake still works fine maybe for another 5,000 miles. He adjusted the brake and my car is good to go.

I found Joe from on this site, and it was the best thing that's happened to me and my car. I'm a tall blonde in my late 20's and typically not taken very seriously by mechanics, but Joe was the exception. He's very respectable, honest, competent, and a fantastic mechanic. My car has never had the same problem twice. A previous mechanic tried to convince me that I needed new shocks, Joe said otherwise and saved me the money. Gotta love someone who doesn't try to sell you things you don't need. I needed new tires and Joe was able to find me tires cheaper than anywhere else. Again, he saved me money. A week after my service, he called to check up and see how she was running. I've never had a mechanic do that before. Joe cares about the people he serves & the cars he works on. If you care about your car & your pocket book, Joe's your man.

I went to Joe based on the reviews here. I must say I was very satisfied with his work. Joe is probably the nicest and the most honest mechanic I know. He is also very helpful and patient. He even helped me with rides to and from work. I recommend him highly.

The reviews here are spot on. Tried MetricTech for the first time this month for a timing belt change on my Acura. The service was great and Joe explained everything he did. Price was reasonable and much cheaper than the dealership. Highly recommended.

I found Joe on this web site a few years ago and have been taking my Honda to him ever since, even though I moved 32 miles away more than a year ago. He has a neat, clean shop and is a very friendly, honest, hardworking person whom I can trust. He always surprises me with the bill, because it is always less than I expected for the great service he gives. Much better than going to a dealership! Much nicer than most independent shops I have been to also.

I was looking for a new workshop for my Ford Focus ZX3 after an other garage disappointed me three times in a row (it started of by forgetting to put the oil cap back back on after this car's very first oil change...) I checked out this website and gave Joe a call. So far I am very happy with him. Great guy! My wife will take here Infinity QX4 there next time. Keep up the good work Joe! PS. According to your advice I took my car to the local Ford dealer. Turned out it needed a new fuel injector (under warranty)!

Joe is a great mechanic. I chose his shop because of the positive comments from other people on this website. After I dropped off my car for a rotor resurfacing, he asked me where I would be spending the next few hours. I told him the local library. When he realized that it wasn't that close, he dropped me off there and picked me back up when my car was finished. The car is fixed. And, his price compared very favorably to the Acura dealership. This was a really smooth and easy experience.

I live a 85 miles from where Metric tech is located. I had a pre-purchase inspection done on a van. Joe was very thorough with the inspection which saved me a lot of time and hassle. The vehicle turned out to be a heap! I wish I could say something nice about the used car dealer that the van came from! Thanks Joe!
