Been taking my 89 Honda Civic there since I moved to Maine about 3 years ago. Their work is OK but pricey. On a recent safety inspection, they replaced a tail light and charged me $1 for the part and $14 for labor!! I complained, but the service rep said they charge by the book. I'm looking for another place to take my car for service. I may return for major work, but not for routine work. Also, I will return for a new muffler when it goes because that's under warrantee.

7/2008. I've lived in Northern Maine for over ten years and usually have my vehicles fixed by a local mechanic but when it is feasible and for certain repairs I prefer to travel 3 hours to Bangor. The best dealer repair shop in over 35 years of driving experience. I've been to Hawaii, Virginia Beach, VA; Sumter and Greenville, South Carolina; Valdosta and Tifton, Georgia; Fairborn and Dayton, Ohio; Palm Coast, Florida; Phoenix, Arizona and several dealers in Bergen County, New Jersey. By far the best and most reasonably priced of all dealer shops I've dealt with. Use the shuttle to visit the mall, friend or restaurant in the city area while your car is being fixed - NO CHARGE. Staff is very friendly and fair. And relax, they will do it right or fix it within reason!

Our starter went on a thursday and I took it to an independent shop that was recommended. They kept it overnight before they acknowledged they couldn't fix it. I went to Darling's on friday afternoon. They fixed it in one hour [4pm-5pm] snd my son was able to go to his birthday party which was being held 100 miles away at Grandmother's house. They charged $335but I was happy because it was in a hard to get at spot. Bob West

Rick has treated me right since day 1. The prices are higher than an independent shop, I'm sure, but I trust him and his crew to always do it right the first time. The only thing this shop could do better is have longer hours (though they are very accommodating when you can't be back at the shop to pick your car up before they close). I used their shuttle service once several years ago and was late for work, despite allowing much more time than I thought was necessary to get there, but I believe they have added vans to their courtesy fleet so that probably would not happen again.
