ALBRECHT SERVICE IS JUST THE BEST! You might have trouble finding it, because the name is only on a small sign on the front door, but it is the blue building on the corner and its most identifiable feature is the big NAPA sign over the garage doors. This place has been taking care of all the problems with my family's vehicles after they go out of dealer warranty since we moved to Sarasota in 1992. Everything but transmissions and alignments - they refer customers out for those. Several cars, a truck and a van have gone something like 150,000 miles very economically under their care. They do not pretend to have low prices on things you hear advertised - like brake and AC service - but you know everything will be done right the first time by an experienced mechanic/diagnostician at a perfectly fair price. This is a family shop that has been on this corner for about 50 years. Jeff is the boss now that his father Roland - who founded the business - has passed on. Jeff communicates well and is good about giving options at different cost levels. I just worry about what I will do if he ever decides to retire. He is down to being open four days a week (monday through thursday) now and I think generally works for old customers and takes new word-of- mouth business when he has time. It would be worth giving him a try, though.

I've used Albrecht Service twice now and am happy to have found a garage where honesty, quality of work and fair pricing are the rule, not the exception. They are efficient and accurate in telling you when the repair will be ready. Also, they are friendly. Stop looking around for a garage in Sarasota, you found it. Oh, and by the way, if you plan on waiting for you vehicle head over to the Silver Star restaurant in the plaza diagonally opposite of Albrecht. Locally owned, good food and great atmosphere of an old fashioned lunchenette from the 1950s. No, I don't own or know anyone who works at either of these businesses.
