Alford's has replaced the head gasket in my Subaru Outback three times. Unfortunately the genuine Subaru part was defective twice, so the third time they put an aftermarket gasket in and we have had no problems. They warranty their work, so we only paid for the repair once. They do free towing for all major repairs. 10% discount on parts for students. Jamie is an ASE Certified technician. Their prices are competitive (trust me I called around). I really trust these guys, and I would and do recommend them to all my friends and family.

Very reasonable and understanding mechanics. One perk is that they give 10% off parts to Purdue Students.

Tried several other mechanics in the greater Lafayette area which ranged from mediocre to bad. A friend recommended Alford's and I have been very satisfied.

My daughter goes to Purdue University, but I live a long way away. She had problems with a CV joint on older car on which she relies. They repaired the broken joint at a very reasonable price. Better still, the new joint broke on her way home, a manufacturer's defect, and not their fault. The shop paid for the towing back in, the new part, and the additional damage done when the CV joint broke. They treated my daughter who knows nothing about cars like an adult and didn't take advantage of her.

Replaced a fuel pump. After the repair, I went to gas up the car, and fuel poured out of the bottom of my car. They had apparently forgotten to connect some hose or something. After fixing that, the car ran fine for a couple days, but then it car wouldn't start. They towed it back to their shop and then they said they didn't see any problem so they charged me for the tow. The fuel pump they put in failed just over a year later.
