These guys are supremely honest. They are a small shop, so they don't do a lot of things, but they have made good recommendations for me. And they usually do not charge me if they check out my car and determine that its something that they can't do. And their work is always satisfactory the first time. Once when I went to a large, well-know shop for something, I got a bait-and-switch routine. I stood my ground and got the work done for the price they originally quoted me. During my discussion with the mechanic, I told him that I would call Scotty's who had recommended them. When I called the next day, this mechanic had already talked to Brian at Scotty's to tell him his side of the story. Now, when I need something that Scotty's doesn't do, often he says, "I know you've had issues with *******, but they will do the best job, and they have a tow truck." Now when I go to *******, I get treated with respect. And I still go to Scotty's whenever I can.

Brian Young and his father (Scotty) operate this small shop. They don't work on older cars that they don't have the proper equipment to analyze, but they will recommend someone else that is almost as good as they are. It's almost like having my dad and brother around to keep my car in shape. They are very thorough and completely honest! And they will tell you if something is going to cost more than your car is worth. (If you haven't figured it out, I drive a 10-year-old car.) No matter what you take your car in for, they notice things like expired or expiring inspection stickers and tags. They will call to see if you want them to do the inspection, and they will remind you about the tags. I moved away for a few years, and still came back to Scotty's when I could. When I left, my son was a senior in high school and he stayed here and lived with his dad. I instructed my son always to take his car to Scotty's no matter what Dad wanted to do. Dad called me one day to ask how I had found these guys. He was amazed at their honesty and reasonable prices.

"Scotty" and Brian Young are the best. My family has been taking them our cars for as long as I can remember. They really care about their customers. I once brought in my car and the problem was major, as in endangering my life. They refused to allow me back behind the wheel. I had to have the car back so they fixed it right then and there. I've had cars towed over 100 miles just to get it back to these guys. I've since moved away and truly wish I could take them with me. At least I know my grandma, mom, and brothers are in good hands.

I was glad to see Scotty's on the list and I wanted to add my say. Brain and his father in law are the best and most honest folks I have ever brought my vehicles too. They explain repairs to me and don't mind taking the time to do it. I went there first for an annual inspection and was so impressed with them that I brought my truck back for work when it needed it. The place is so clean, you could probably picnic on the floor. It is spotless! If they see a problem you should know about, they tell you or call you about it and give you an estimate if you decide to have it fixed. I send all my friends (female and male alike), my husband and my daughter to them.

My family has been bringing their cars to Scotty and Brian for as long as I can remember. They'll tell you straight up what's wrong with your car and if it's even worth fixing. They are always very honest about their pricing. Even now that I live across the country, any time I'm back home, I bring my car to them just to have it checked out. When I had to bring in my very first car in to them, it had a problem that could not be recreated in the shop. They asked to keep it over night to be able to take it for test drives. Their test drives aren't the quick trip around the block like some places; they drive your car like you would drive it, to run an errand or pick up something from the store. I was running to the bank for my Grandmother and there's my car, out in the bank parking lot. Scotty and Brian had taken it for a real test drive. When I met up with them in the bank, they told me they had felt exactly what I had described to them and had if fixed in no time. They are wonderful and honest mechanics, and stand-up gentlemen.

An update to my comments in 2005 - Don "Scotty" has died, and is greatly missed. Brian continues to run the same quality operation. I'm driving the same car I was in 2005, now 14 years old and running great, thanks in large part to Brian's and Don's care and advice over the years.

Brian has always given me excellent service and explained everything thoroughly. As a small shop, there are some services he cannot perform at his shop, and he advises me where I can take my car for reliable service. As a woman, it is valuable to know I can take my car for repairs and not have someone call and tell me it needs extra repairs and will cost more. This garage was referred to me by a friend who has always had good service, also. They have been in business since 1964 and have a good reputation. I feel fortunate to have a mechanic I can trust.

I have found the owner to very honest and has saved me unnecessary repairs (and thus, money) recommended by the dealership or others. I appreciate the fact does not try to speak to me as if I know nothing about cars just because I'm female. I have found him to completely honest and extremely capable. I wouldn't take me car anywhere else.
