My 1993 Buick LeSabre has over 110,000 miles on it. It's in good condition because Peter Kelemencky, the owner, takes a personal interest in seeing that repairs are done properly. Further, he is generous with his advice and explanations, including future ramifications, so that I have a complete understanding of the repair in question and what I can anticipate in the future. He's honest, reasonable in cost, expert and completely trustworthy.

We've been taking our cars to Pete's for years. As we are not a mechanically inclined family, it comforts me to know that all my daughters feel comfortable running to Pete with their car problems that Dad can't help them with. He takes good care of the whole family and understands teenage drivers and what they do to their cars.

They gave us timely advice to sell the 1991 Mercury Sable with turbo engine as the heater core began to go bad and the motor mounts began to break. Saved us money and frustration. When the Honda needed a new oil pump, they did not recommend it. Instead they recommended that I carry several quarts of oil, check it often and add it is needed. The pump lasted for at least 5 years more, deteriorating slowly as the paint chipped off the car until it one day we had a 12 year old car! We traded in the car when we got tired of being chased by a blue cloud every time we revved the engine. We love Pete!

Many, many repairs on several domestic and foreign cars over 10 plus years. Never a bad experience; honest, reasonable, professional. They don't recommend unneeded repairs and even advise against repairs that I might think I need but don't. Treat customers (male and female) with respect. Why go anywhere else?

I've been going to Pete's for 7 years, since I started driving, and they've never let me down. Virtually every time I've needed work done, they've overestimated the cost of parts and the time needed for the repair, so I end up paying less than I expected and getting my car back sooner. They go out of their way to find cheap parts/tires, and their work is quick and effective. Happy to have such a trustworthy mechanic in town!

Have been to over 4 different garages with this vehicle. It's a '99 and we have owned it since 2001. The Dealer was good, but expensive. The primary garage we used was also very good, but raised their rates. PC took care of us. They explained every problem we had with the vehicle, told us when we should try a couple of different options on an issue they couldn't immediately diagnose. They didn't charge us for a couple of minor follow-ups. Well worth the move to change service providers. Vehicle now has over 138,000 miles and going strong because of PC Texaco.

Everybody I know who lives within a 20 mile radius of Woodbury goes to Pete's. I think he might be getting close to retirement; but the younger gentleman who handled my car most recently did an equally great job. The folks there are always honest and accurate in their estimates of both cost and time. For the most recent example: I had heard a grinding in my brakes and based on my last service and how much I use the car I assumed that I needed brakes. In fact, when I called I said that I definitely need pads and probably rotors too; and there was some kind of odd problem with the constant-hot electrical. This is a mechanic's goldmine. The day after I dropped my car off, Chris called me to tell me that I don't need brakes as they just cleaned them and adjusted them, and the electrical problem was a connector and a fuse. Oh, and I asked for an oil change. I expected to be in the neighborhood of $500 for this and I ended up at $71. How can you beat that?
