This is really a good mechanic shop. They get a lot of business in the area because they are that competent. They are particularly good at explaining in some detail what the problem was.

On two separate occasions they have fixed minor things (put in a fuse, for example) and when I asked "How much?" the answer was "No charge" and a smile! The Public transportation question is tricky; Sandpoint has no bus service, and only one or two cabs, so I have always made my own arrangements,or brought my bike, I really have no idea what Six Star offers. I have always been treated very well, and never talked down to. I am literally a little old lady, but as a kid my Dad and I had midget race cars, so I would be offended if I thought I was being patronized in any way.

Honest, friendly staff. They do offer a loaner on availability, always offer a ride to and from work or home.

I took my 91 Chevy 1500 here for a broken wiper motor, a leak in my front break line, and a steering column that needed bolts to be tightened. My total came to a little over $790. They charged me TWO diagnostic fees of $50... you can have a diagnostic ran up on an ENTIRE car for $80. Not to mention they charged me over $200 to tighten a steering column. When I called to speak with the owner about being charged two separate diagnostic fees, and told him I felt taken advantage of, he basically told me he didn't care. I'm not saying that the mechanics here don't do good work, but I am saying they are overpriced and they WILL price gauge you - they've done it to plenty of my friends and family members and now me (I only took my vehicle there because it was an emergency situation.) I would not recommend this shop to anyone unless you have money to burn. There are plenty of other reputable mechanic shops in Sandpoint that do the same work for a 1/3 of the price. If you have a problem with your vehicle head on over to Bulldog Automotive or Northwest Auto-body
