Rex has the patience to figure out what the problem is. My car had developed this horrible habit of occasionally stalling when pulling away from stop signs or traffic lights [much to the consternation of those behind me]. I had it towed it to the local garage in my neighborhood [name withheld to protect the guilty], because I could walk over to the garage to pick up the car. After 4 days of the owner telling me "we're working on it," I finally confronted him and he told me the truth. They would go and start the car and it would always run. I told him that it was a sporatic problem, but he wouldn't budge -- or have the mechanic start it more than once a day. I took the car to Rex and he worked on it for 5 hours until he was able to reproduce the problem. It turned out that the computer was failing to send a pulse to the fuel injector. Now that I have a new computer, I am back in business. I have taken my wife's car in to see Rex and he has done the same high quality work for her. I am so happy to find a competent and hard working mechanic.

They may be a bit more expensive than other garages, but the work is VERY GOOD! They will always phone to tell you of progress or problems found in the car. Give a detailed account of which technician did which repair . Will give you a list of future needed repairs.

Rex is wonderful. I trust him absolutely. He's fixed my camry and dauntlessly taken on my '71 Chevy truck with equal skill and enthusiasm. I've sent my friends, my friends' moms, my colleagues at the university, and random aquaintances to him. All report that the shop is on time, within estimate, and scrupulously honest. His pretty wife manages the office and maintains a wonderful raport with their clients. They are lovely people--skilled and honest.
