"Chief" is how they call him at Murray's Auto Clinic, 'cause he is the chief foreman. He has taken care of my 86 Corolla which was a lemon when I got it. He is one of those guys who looks like he is always having a bad hair cum bad dress day, but he has done a terrific job on this car starting from rebuilding the engine they have diagnosed every problem correctly and promptly.I plan to run this car at least a 100K before junking it (It had a little more than 90K when I got it, and has 140K on it now) because Iam attached to it and Iam confident that my mechanic will help me do it without driving me bankrupt. Remember, all this in spite of my testosterone-poisoned reckless driving on the pot-hole filled and perennially grid-locked roads of the DC area full of bad, angry drivers

After reading the review of Murray's Auto Clinic here on, I decided to have them replace the catalytic converter on my 1999 Pontiac Grand Am. Not only did they have the job done in less than 8 hours, but their prices were very competitive compared to taking it to a dealer and they even provided a shuttle service to the Metro station. However, what will really keep me coming back, is that they were willing to spend a few minutes giving me their thoughts on my search for a new-used car!

I have been going here after taking my 280zx to the dealer for a faulty air conditioning system that the Nissan dealer could not fix after four attempts. I have taken three different cars there since 1985 and these guys are great. Ask for Milo

New in town from CA. Had Murray's put in a new power steering pump and fix an exhaust leak. Their work is A+ and I feel comfortable with their honesty. They are quick with their work and great with explaining the problem. My only gripe is that I feel they might be a bit on the high side regarding prices, but like I said, I'm new to the area and maybe it's just the going rate around these pa

I've been going to Murray's since I was in school and broke w/my old Plymouth Horizon. Ten years w/my Subaru Outback, and the new Subaru will go to them before it goes to the dealer. They fix things, they are as honest as a car mechanic can be for this area (national capital region), they are reasonably priced and they can be trusted to get the job done. I'd recommend Murray's to anyone.

My daughter took her 2000 Saturn there to see why the a/c quit. She'd already checked the fuse, swapped relays, checked that there was static pressure in the low line (85 lbs, hot day..). They told her it had to be drained and recharged right off. Odd, it had plenty pressure to activate the pressure switch. That was $150. Then they told her it had an electrical problem and it would be another $200 to diagnose it. She told them to stop and got her car. I got it home (500 miles) today. Took me 20 minutes to see that all electrical checked out in that as I press the a/c button on and off my voltmeter is going on and off normally when measured at the compressor clutch (dark green wire hot, black ground). So, it's the clutch and probably needs a compressor, too (to explain the dead clutch). Further proof, 5 minutes to measure no resistance at clutch terminals, should read a few ohms, signifying open circuit. We won't be getting into that big a repair, but I wish my daughter had her $150 back; they didn't do anything and gave no diagnosis. I have no idea if they really evac'd and refilled. It had pressure before and after.
