My wifes 85 Corolla was sideswiped in '85. in '89, the bolt that holds the pully wheel on the crankshaft (same area that got hit) sheared off. We're all pretty sure it was damagedin the accident, and just took awhile to break. Herman, rather than just telling us we needed a new crankshaft, etc., coredrilled the case-hardened bolt shaft out of the crankshaft end, and torched-then-freeon to pop out the threads. What could have been a $1500 job was only $350, mostly labor.

Herman is a real old fashion technician. Unfortunately this may mean that he is weak on some of the most up-todate technology but then if you have a new car you have a bumber to bumber warrenty from the dealership. What Herman is is persistant at solving your problem. He and Sam are excellant on the basics and are very thorough. You will not drive out of his shop with a leak that can be found or a CV boot that is torn and not be at least told about it. They are also completely honest. They will tell you when it is time to give up on your old car and get a new one, even if this means that they will not be see you and your green stuff so often for a while.

I had over $1200.00 in repairs done at a certain franchised tire and auto repair store and Herman's found the problem and repaired it for under $100. Herman's also documented the unnecessary repairs related to the other company.

Friends of ours recommended Herman's Auto Clinic and even though it is a bit far from where we live, we take both our cars there. He seems to keep the costs down and goes above- and-beyond. I highly recommend this shop.

When you first pull into Herman's you might have misgivings because it is small and kind of country but I have had the displeasure of dealing with five shady "Chain" repair shops since moving to Tampa so I was relieved to see this "old fashioned" approach to car repair. Herman is very knowledgable and more than willing to explain in great detail anything you want to know about your problem or any other car issue. I had done the break job myself and knew it was right so I was convinced it was something in the front end. Herman could have taken me for tie rods, ball joints all kinds of things but he discovered one of the new crossdrilled rotors was defective. He put new stock ones on and offered to put on the matching crossdrilled rotor at no charge when I get a new one. The car was done the same day despite him being very busy. One more thing, he finally explained a thermostat housing leak that $850 at Bill Curry Ford failed to fix. I will use no one else as long as I am in Tampa. Thanks to those who left the reviews that led me to him and I am proud to recommend him to you!
