I have gone to Wayne's several times for electrical work for many cars in our family. He has fixed things when we screwed them up trying to do them ourselves(ex. replace a starter). They always try to fit you in or tell you when they can work on it so you do not lose your ride for the entire day. It is not the very clean, coffee in the waiting room type of place. It may not be for all women( but myself being one I have always been treated well!). These guys really know what they are doing and will charge you incredibly fairly. I have seen them do everything from alternators, batterys, remote starters and even install winshield wipers for a lady that was having problems. There is a very nice an efficient lady who runs the desk and is always very concerned about what is wrong with your car. I have made it out of there paying under $20 for a repair. I recommend it to everyone I know.

I had not heard of Wayne's until an AutoZone salesman recommended it after checking my battery to be good despite a mysterious drain on it. My first impression of the shop was, quite frankly, negative. It is nestled in a older residential neighborhood and has an unkempt look. But when I spied a Mercedes in the open garage, I decided to take a chance. The front desk was unmanned, but it took only a moment before one of the mechanics appeared. His appearance was more Appalachian than Park Avenue, but he was professionally attentive as I explained my car problem. He clearly answered all my questions and so I left my car keys with him since he would not be able to do the job that day. His fee was $65 to diagnose the battery drain problem. I got a call from the office manager early the next morning to tell me that it was indeed a bad battery (despite what AutoZone told me). But Wayne's fortunately sold Interstate batteries. Since Wayne's waived the original diagnostics fee and just charged me for the battery (similarly priced to the equivalent from AutoZone), I gave the approval for that work. Wayne's hooked up the battery, let it sit for two hours to check for any drainage, and then started the car without problems. "Mom" at the front office explained the work done, showed me the diagnostics reports before and after the new battery was installed, and returned my key with a smile. Wayne's reminded me dramatically that looks can indeed be deceiving!
