While they may not be the cheapest around Chris and his crew know their Toyotas and do quality work that you can rely on without getting hosed! They are also good at doing a thorough inspection of the vehicle and noting repairs that may need attention in the future (avoiding costly suprises).

Chris was even more sad than I was when I fried the engine on my '91 Corolla, although he couldn't identify what the Speedee Oil Change guy did wrong that caused the Corolla to throw a rod through the oil pan. And, Chris didn't even charge me when he looked it over, when he found the thrown rod.

The map link on this page doesn't give the correct location, maybe mapquest is confused by the -C in the address. It's on Palm but south of 92 (the 2100 block would of course have 21st Ave. as the cross street).

All the work was done was great but Chris didn't treat me as a customer. He seems to behave like he's doing me a favor. I am shopping for an alternate mechanic.

Three other shops could not find the cause of my Tacoma's hesitation. C&T found it the first day they had it repaired the next morning. The other shops had car a combined two weeks.

Chris is straightforward, competent and, as far as I can tell, exceptionally honest. I drive 27 miles so he can take care of my car and once, when I took my car to another mechanic for a oil change, he asked who took care of my 20 yr old car because he was so impressed by the state of everything under the hood.

As I am looking to check out another mechanic, I realize now that I went to this shop about six years ago to have them look at an older model Camry. I was disappointed to learn from them that the car was a worn out piece of crap-- they gave me a long list of things it needed done, many of them safety items requiring immediate attention. They felt bad for me, as I had obviously made a mistake with my purchase. The list they gave me was detailed and it allowed me to do some of the work myself so i could then sell it with good conscience (that it would not kill the new owner). Anyways, now I am realizing through my haze of years and disappointment with my poor decision, that they were a good shop--I had learned of Chris from my then neighbor, who was his aunt. Anyway, I am calling him tomorrow to get a quote for fixing wheel noise on my 4Runner. I will report back with new info after that experience.

If you want HONEST! service Chris is the person to see. I have been a customer for several years and I have always received great efficient service on my Toyota Rav 4. I am a commuter, and Chris always makes sure that my Rav 4 is in top condition for me to be back on the road. Chris, takes care of his customers like as if their were his own family.
