I've been to a lot of mechanics in town over the years, and I'm so happy to have found a competent, knowledgeable, methodical, honest, and kind mechanic. I write this review to endorse only the one mechanic there that I interacted with: the man with the blonde mustache. He quickly ran through component after component of my electrical system with a test light to find out the problem that all the other mechanics I talked to only speculated about. He's not the speculative type; he's the old school roll-up-your- sleeves-and-figure-out-the-problem kind of guy. Other mechanics with their new "high tech" computers and gadgets told me my battery, then alternator, then voltage regulator were bad after I had each one replaced respectively. This guy didn't need a computer to misidentify the problem and cost me copiously unnecessary expenditures until the problem was found by process of elimination, he just used a multimeter and test light and traced my problem to a LOOSE fuse. After his diligent service in the parking lot under our blistering Florida sun, he charged me nothing. This is the kind of attention and appreciation of yesteryear that compels one to be a habitual lifelong customer. You owe it to yourself to try them out!
