I relocated to Athens, GA without my mechanic from NY. For some reason, my mechanic wouldn't move with me, so I had to find another one. As we all know, it's hard to find and honest to goodness mechanic that knows his/her stuff. Well, I happened upon Bud Morrissey through a friend and he really set my mind at ease. Really knows how to take care of someone who knows squat about engines. And I know squat. And I found out he's from NY, so that makes me feel at home. Maybe he'll let me take him back home with me when I move again. Bud's a real top notch guy. You won't be disappointed.

I had the shop inspect a 2008 Volvo S40 I was interested in buying. The guys were all extremely friendly and thorough in their inspection of the car, even though it was a relatively new used car, and I was simply being cautious. They explained what sort of maintenance I could expect down the road with the car and definitely took their time to look things over. However, their location is a bit tough to find without a navigation system of some sort, and it's a bit isolated, so be aware of that.

So, I've got this great '96 Saab hatchback which in the past few years has needed a lot of work to keep it running. I don't mind, because every great mechanic I meet tells me that as long as I'm willing to maintain it, the car is going to last me for another 100K (it just hit 150K two months ago). When my clutch went out last week, Burt at Athens Autoworks was incredibly helpful and open about what the possible causes may have been, what each problem would possibly cost, and he was even willing to say that he doesn't see a lot of Saabs, and volunteered to recommend another mechanic--all over the phone, before the car had even been towed. I told him that I got his recommendation from your Mechanic's Files, and so I'd like to stick with him, through the diagnosis and estimate at least. The very next day, he came back to tell me that they'd checked out the entire transmission and assured me that the repair was actually very minor, and related to a defective clutch cable. The car was fixed by the end of the day. It was an incredibly pleasant experience from start to finish. He never once assumed that I wouldn't understand the technical information he was throwing at me (I know a lot about my car, so when he offered to explain, I told him not to worry). I would definitely recommend his services to friends looking for a trustworthy repair, and even prepared a dish of brownies for him, in the Click & Clack tradition. =)
