These guys are the best! Bill treats his staff well and they stay forever--you always have the same person working on your car. They are smart and funny and you wouldn't mind inviting them into your home (well, after they wash their hands, of course). I've been going to Slipstream for, mmm, 20 years? They only ONCE made a minor goof and they fixed it immediately, no hassle. If they ever close the shop, I'll be despondent!

Good people, trustworthy, very thorough and skilled. I've been taking my Subarus there for over 10 years, and have always had good service and happy cars. Highly recommended. One time the taillights were out, and they had to take apart the steering wheel to fix the problem. They didn't know they'd have to replace the air bag and so hadn't put that cost into the estimate. They were kind enough to absorb that cost themselves and not charge me for it. I will always take my cars there.

Bill and his staff are fantastic. Competent people who do a great job and are always nice and helpful. I actually LIKE taking my car in.

I've been seeing these guys for ten years now, primarily for maintenance (Toyota's just dont need a lot of repairs). I'm a competant mechanic myself, and they're very accomodating to my requests. They've also been very honest, and have not done work when, in their judgement, it wasn't needed. Even when it was on the quote.

My husband and I have used Slipstream for years. They are the best. The Audi dealer wanted to charge me $650 or so to repair the air conditioning. Bill fixed it for less than $50. Another Audi had a coolant leak that I described as "glacial but inexorable"; another customer in the shop at the time said that Slipstream was one of the few shops that would understand what I meant by that.

Bill and his employees are a pleasure to do business with. I haven't felt this good about the car my car gets since I was married to a mechanic--actually, my car gets BETTER care at Slipstream than it did then! And I Slipstream is more trustworthy.

I came to Slipstream because several friends who were Audi owners recommended them very highly. I had a Toyota and while they were upfront that this was not their main specialty (they are reknowned for working on Audis and Saabs) they were willing to take my car on. They were far more expensive than any other mechanics I had (or have since) worked with. I stayed with them for two years with no complaints until my car failed an emission test (this was about six years ago). They did hugely expensive diagnostics and repairs and it still failed. They then were required (by law) to re-repair at no cost. They were not happy. They suggested that the problem was that I was still using a car with a carburetor and should upgrade to a fuel injected model. They finally did get the car to minimally pass, but said it wouldn't pass again. At this point I switched to a Toyota expert at a less desirable location. He not only found the original problem (that these guys never did) but at far less cost. The car easily passed it's next emission test with flying colors. I would recommend them for higher end cars and many of my wealthier friends swear by them, but not for low end cars or anyone on a limited budget.
