The best part about Dr. Tune-Up (aka Bruce Gerry) is that he makes housecalls. He also seems to work hard to meet your scheduling needs. He took care of both my brother-in- law's car and mine within 24 hours because we were both moving and needed to make sure our cars would make it to our respective destinations. I couldn't get any of the other shops that I normally use to service my car in that time because they were too busy. I was really glad that I happened upon Dr. Tune-Up. Bruce definitely took time to explain everything to me and has a great sense of humor, to bout. I highly recommend him.

Doctor Tune up is great. He actually comes to your car and works on the street so if your car is stranded, no problem. He is a great guy, explains everything in detail, lets you watch, and and even teaches you some things as he goes along. I highly recomend his work.

After I had a slew of trouble with my 95 Dodge Neon and had dealt with two mechanics who had really poor customer service, I was at my wit's end and decided I wanted to scrap my car. But Dr. Tune Up said he thought they might have misdiagnosed the problems (and they had), and he explained exactly what it was, gave me an estimate for 1/2 the price of the others, and was very prompt and courteous. If you want to go to a mechanic whom you can trust implicitly, and who is extremely competant, service- oriented, and priced fairly you can do no better than Dr. Tune Up. Plus he makes house calls...call him!

This is a great concept. Dr. Tuneup has been going to his customers for close to 40 years. Not only is he a great mechanic who knows a lot about cars he is also a great guy. While visiting my daughter in the Boston area recently (she just moved to Boston and had twins in March 2011) she needed repairs on her car. She didn't know of any repair garages so I logged on to the cartalk website and found Dr. Tuneup. He came out the next day and repaired her car. He also found a few problems that needed correcting. So if you're a busy mom who can't get to a garage or work long hours, try Dr. Tuneup - he'll come to your house or place of business (just have a cup of tea for him!!) It's better than going to some garage and being stuck in a waiting room for hours on end reading 5 yr. old copies of Field and Stream !! I just wish he made house calls to Michigan where I live ~!!
