I first brought a used '93 Miata to Rick for A/C repair (this Miata replaced my beloved '90 that got rear-ended by a black Jetta driving at night with its headlights off ...); I got an education as he troubleshot, starting with the cheapest possible fix and working his way through the problem. He treated me so well, that I took the car back to him for routine service, where he found and fixed a few things that Rusty's had missed. As the shop specializes in Audi, I recommended him to my husband for his TT (he had been frustrated with the dealer not being able to take care of some things). Again, R&D proved superior. For those with difficult schedules/commutes, after-hours drop off and pick up are possible.

Rick always takes time to clearly explain the problem, happy to give you as much detail as you wish. He treats men and women equally and takes much pride is his bussiness. On two occasions, once with the air conditioning on my old Jeep and more recently with my Toyota Land Cruiser he has actually talk me out of having some work done, explaining why the cost to benefit ratio did not make it worth while. On both occasions it turned out to be the right advice. He was recommended to me by a friend, and I in turn have recommended him to several people including my dad.
