The only place we take our cars for repair. From oil changes to major work Cahill's is simply the best. One of the rarest of the rare, an honest and competent auto repair shop. We have even bought two used cars from them (Jeep Wrangler & Dodge Caravan) got great deals and very good cars. I recomend them without any reservation.

They give you the most BANG for your buck, guaranteed. My 91 Buick is just about at the end of her days, and I can honestly say that Pat and his team have helped me keep her going, even on my shoestring budget. About 4 months ago, he advised I HAD to have my front brakes worked on. He also said that it wouldn't be long before my back brakes and struts and shocks (heck the whole back end) would need help, but that given the current state of the car (& of my wallet), we would hold off. Today, in his best bedside manner ever, Pat told me he and the guys did all they could for the car, and that it was in a state of decline. He mentioned how he wished they could have pulled a rabbit out of a hat to keep it going, but alas... WHO ELSE DOES THIS? They are the best!

I absolutely rely on Cahill's for nearly all my auto work. We've been taking our cars there for about 15 years now. Pat Cahill is honest and competent. He is also good at working with you if you are on a budget. He'll give an honest assessment of what absolutely has to be done, what can be put off for a short time, what can be nursed along with a band-aid, what you can live without, etc. Pat is also good about discussing whether it's worth fixing a problem vs. replacing the car. For instance, we had a car that needed a head gasket. He pointed out that our model was notorious for also having the transmission go out, and there were some other looming maintenance needs. He basically said, "If you plan on keeping the car, you should be ready to invest about $5000 in repairs on it. If you're OK with that, fine; but you should seriously consider getting rid of it now." When we decided to do just that, he didn't charge us for the diagnostic work he had done! We also bought a used car from him which was a great value, and Pat has consulted with us on the purchase of other used cars. I cannot recommend Cahill's highly enough--they are the best!

Went in for an estimate to replace CV joints on a 1995 Toyota Avalon. He said he "wouldn't get involved in a car that old - too much corrosion". The car is in pristine condition with absolutely no rust. People have approached me about buying it. He didn't even SEE the car, and assumed it was a piece of junk! I myself (an amateur) replace the front ABS sensors in less time than the book said it would take. E-X-C-U-S-E- ME for not bringing you a right-off-the -assembly-line car to work on!!
