Mr Johnson and his team of good mechanics kept my 1991 Ford Escort in good running condition, from minor tuneups to major things like the timing belt and a new starter. I could trust him when I asked if the car was ready to take on a 1000 mile round trip to Dayton, Ohio or to the UP of Michigan. He is always honest and will not try to tell you to fix something that is not needed. I always recommend him if ask if I know a GOOD, HONEST mechanic! I always enjoy talking to him in his clean shop.

When I walked into this *immaculate* shop, I knew I had come to the right place - spotless and well oragnized, these guys are real mechanics. Good intuitive troubleshooting coupled with a great base of model experience. In my instance, they troubleshot a screwy problem with the ignition system and the steering column wiring harness that had flummoxed other mechanics. Great work. Great price. And they explained all the work to me. I do some of my own work on my car, and these guys weren't snowing me. They are the real deal, and take pride in their work.

Johnson's was highly recommended and I see why. Work was done affordably and explained thoroughly. Very quick!! Unlike most shops (ie: the Dodge dealership) they didn't point out a bunch of questionably necessary additional repairs.

They are very honest and dependable. I have been going to them for 6 years.

While I did not take my vehicle for repair to this shop, I spoke to the manager about my problem. He was very straight- forward about what the costs would be and even suggested taking it to another repair shop because he could not give me a fair price (I assumed he would have had to outsource some of the work). He told me what the book hours were for the job and explained what parts would need to be replaced, thereby giving me enough information to determine I wouldn't be ripped off when I took the vehicle someplace else. Kudos for his honesty.
