Besides being very reasonably priced, and honest, I appreciate that they never do more work than is necessary. They are very accommodating in all requests for assistance with transportation arrangements, and finding other reputable people for work that needs to be subbed out. Generally, I wish I could be so positive about more people that I do businees with.

The shop is run by a father and 2 sons, and they are the most honest mechanics I have ever met. But rather than tell you how great they are, I'll tell you a story: I have a 1997 Honda Civic, which runs great. One time, the check engine light went on. The dealer would charge $60 just to diagnose the problem. But I brought it there, and they plugged the computer in and discovered that the oxygen sensor was bad. They didn't have the part in stock, so they ordered it from the dealer down the street. While I was waiting for the part, I called the dealer, who wanted $215 for the part (plus labor the put it in). When I went to go get the car, Jeff (the father) showed me the receipt for the part. The dealer charged him $171 for it, and he asked me for $180 TOTAL. I was amazed that he was going to make less than $10 on this, and started to argue with him that he wasn't charging me enough. He countered that it took him less than 5 minutes to diagnose, and about the same to swap the sensor. In the end, I convinced him to charge me $200 because he had to pay the credit card fee. Never in my life did I think I'd be asking a mechanic to charge me MORE, and now I won't take my car anywhere else... Treat them well, and they'll return the favor.

These guys are all the reviewers say: honest, helpful, willing to take the extra time to explain the problem, and to do do things in the order they need to be done and not before.

Airport Motors is the best place to take your car for repair. They treat you with respect (even if you are a woman), never fix anything that doesn't need fixing and are honest and trustworthy. Their main concern is safety and they will tell you, "It sounds funny, but it's safe, so it's up to you to decide if the noise bothers you enough to pay to fix it". I have been going to them for years and have found them to be the best I've ever experienced. I could NOT ask for more. I recommend them highly without hesitation.

I found these guys through this Mechnics Files and have been absolutely delighted with them. They are honest, competent, and friendly. They have always got me in on short notice (I don't think I've ever had to wait more than a day or two). One of the best things about them is they're conservative--they're up front about only fixing what NEEDS to be fixed, but of course if you want more done they'll probably be happy to do it for you. Can't recommend them highly enough.

Hundreds of miles from home and a head gasket blew. Not only was I able to get up and running, I did so at a fraction of what anyone else down there wanted to charge me. My only regret is that I live so far away and I can't have every problem dealt with by this mechanic!

They did a great job fixing my car and they had it ready the same day at a reasonable price. I plan to go back to them for future service.
