I was referred to Doug Yansky when a local "brake shop" told me i needed new hydraulics on my three year old brakes. He laughed, and only fixed what needed repair. Later, when a second, much older car, needed tender care to stay on the road, he always suggested several options to repair a problem, and was quite willing to only do the kind of repair the car was worth. His work is fast, and always well done. He remembers cars and owners, and always explains what is wrong and what needs doing very graciously.

Doug Yansky always takes the time to explain the needed repairs in a way that non-car people can understand. He does this in a non-condescending manner, which sets him apart from mechanics at other repair shops in the area. I highly recommend Yanksy's if you want your car fixed, and want to learn something new about how cars work.

I have used Doug for 15 years on all of my cars. Although he is located out of the town limits, he gladly provides transportation if needed. He is willing to test drive your car and he is very competent. He will never try to sell you on unneeded repairs. If you are on a tight budget, he finds a way to work with what you can afford. I go past many other mechanics to go to Doug because he is absolutely honest. If something goes wrong, he makes it right. His place of business is not designed to impress you with high cost marketing, just good, competent work ... every time.

I have never had an oil change experience like the one I just had at Doug Yansky Auto. They were extremely honest, helpful and efficient. After a friend recommended their service I called on a Monday to make an oil change appointment. The person on the phone said to bring my car in anytime. On Tuesday I took the car to Yansky's and was out in 30 minutes for $20. The mechanic noticed that my "check engine" light was on (it has been for over a year). He checked it out and told me the problem wasn't necessary to fix, but I might find my gas mileage decrease because of it. He gave me an estimate for the fix, and told me to keep track of my gas mileage. I don't know yet if I'll get my "check engine" problem fixed, but if I do I will definitely take it to Yansky's.
