My wife took her Hondas to Richard for 20 years before deciding to move up (?) to a Saab. I bought my Subaru from him at $1000 under book, even though he'd installed new brakes, alternator, tires, and other minor items - it's still going strong at 175,000 miles. He has been unfailingly competent, helpful, and friendly. He has loaners for major jobs, and has even given roadside advice via cell phone on a couple of occasions. Can't recommend him highly enough.

Richard is terrific - honest, direct, and very skilled. We go to him for all our basic needs; when he diagnosed a blown strut (accurately) he asked us if our car was still under warranty - when we told him it was, he suggested we bring it to the Honda dealer to get it fixed for free, rather than paying him (as he doesn't do warranty repairs.) When it turned out the warranty didn't cover the struts, we brought it back to him, and his charge was $100 less than the dealer quoted us. He also has loaners for repair times - we are a single car family, and that's a fantastic thing - very few folks around here do that. (Again, the local major dealer will lend you a bicycle for a while... but that's it! And they have a lot full of used cars.) When we first bought the car, we were bringing to that local dealer for all the repairs & oil changes; we found Richard after, for the 2nd time, the car came back from the other folks in worse shape than it started.

I have always trusted Richard and his staff. My husband was a fussy engineering type and chose Richard's for the work on our family cars. Got rid of the husband, but never the mechanic!

After a not-so-honest experience at the local Honda dealer, I went to Richard's based on all of the above recommendations. I have had honest, consistent and extremely competent experiences ever since. It's completely restored my faith in Auto Mechanics!

I discovered Richard in 1986 when I bought my first Honda. Until recently, I owned Hondas non-stop since then, and he has worked on them all. In fact, I bought two of my cars from him. He is super-competent, prompt, honest, straightforward, fair, and communicative. I cannot say enough good things about his work and his integrity. A great mechanic.
