We went to John based on the reviews to replace a water pump on our 91 Chevy Cavalier. We brought in our own pump to save money, and though that limited the warranty John would give, he did a fine job.

I went to John after reading the reviews on Mechan-X files and was pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of the comments. He gave a reasonable estimate and stuck to it. He did a great job and the car was ready before time.

John has worked on a 71 Ford truck and a 1990 Mustang for me. I have used him for years and find him to be totally trustworthy and competent. He has given accurate advice, helped me weigh options, and produced repairs on time. He is sometimes too full to conveniently schedule a repair but is responsive for quick fixes when they are possible. He runs a small shop with quality folks.

They are always friendly and informative. Always willing to fix something right away if you get there early in the morning. They frequently will do small, quick jobs for free.

This shop is very upfront and honest. Not the cheapest but the rates are reasonable and the work is always done well the first time. Have told me a few times that I didn't need to have certain work done. They could have easily just done the work and billed for it. Highly recommended.

I went to John based upon the recommendation given here. John is a soft spoken guy who knows cars. His shop stays very busy and you may have to occasionally wait to get an appointment. With that said, I once had a leaking radiator that he diagnosed immediately upon my arrival. He will not sell you anything you do not need. Not cheap, but not expensive.

I went to John when I moved to Marietta in 1999 based on the customer comments contained on this website. They said it was often hard to get an appointment because he stays so busy, but that was a good thing. If you call ahead, you can always get an appointment.
