When my wife and I moved to Portland, ME this spring we were realy concened that we could replace Dennis, Tim and the other guys at D&D Auto in Concord, NH to service our 2 Toyota vehicles (one a couple years old, one ancient).W We now live a couple blocks from Woodford Steet Garage (Portland Maine). Although our experience has been minor (inspections, tire rotations and repairs, etc.) we sense that the people at Woodford's care about you first. They are great to deal with and we urge you to try Woodfords's. For those in the Concord. NH area, try D&D Auto. You will not be disappointed. Imagine - two homest vehicle repair shops only 100 miles apart.

John and Steve are extremely knowlegeable and honest mechanics. I feel very confident in the work they have done on my '97 Nissan 4X4. They were recommended by my sister and we have both been pleased with Woodford Garage. I appreciate the time they take explaining repair work or the not having to do repair work. These guys are the best!

Always honest. Will often tell you that certain work is NOT necessary. They'll often do little things for free. They are the best! And so very polite!!

as a woman i have felt taken advantage of by other repair shop espesially the dealer, my best experience was when my air bag light came on, i was near the dealer, so i popped in, they reported the problem a faulty deployment sensor and could be replaced for a mere $650, well fealing uncomfortable i decided to hold off, they tried scaring me with "the air bag will deploy at any time", now even more nervous, i still left on my way home i passed the woodford street garage, i decided to see if i could get a second opinion, they checked my van out, they found the "clockspring" was a problem, now still being nervous, they actually told me "that should be covered under my factory warrantee"(two year old van with 18,000 miles on it) and that the air bag would not deploy as the with the light on the air bag was not active. i called a different dealer and had the van looked at, it was the "clockspring", and was under warrantee, the guys at woodford street garage are fair and honest they are my new garage i drive over 15 miles to have them repair my vehicle and will always have them look at things first. THEY ARE GREAT, please use them as i would love to see them around for a long time!!!!

I love these guys, they treat everyone the same, man, woman, or child. they are great at repairing my car right the first time. they are always busy, but never too busy to stop and adjust my tire pressure, or check my oil before a long trip. i hope everyone gives them a shot at being their mechanics, everyone deserves to be treated like this.

Super nice folks @ Woodfords. My husband and I have taken both our cars there (Mazda and Honda) with good results. Have had good experiences with them and have recommended my sister as well as friends. Great to have honest and knowledgable mechanics in the neighborhood! There's also a bus stop w/in half a block if you work in town which is very handy. They've been timely and fair. Very glad to have found them! I highly recommend them.

They are patient with my car ignorance, never take advantage of it, courteous, competent, and never have turned me away when I've left the car in their parking lot with a begging message on their answering machine, even though I haven't yet brought them brownies. I recommend them reluctantly because I don't want them to get any busier, but they are definitely the best.

Maybe they are just good to me because I am putting all of their kids through college with my high mileage old german car, but I have not yet had a bad experience with them. The most difficult part of working with them is their hours, since I am always at work when they are open. It can also take a long time to get a car in to see them sometimes, since they are a little too popular. Also, I have had a much better experience taking my old BMW to them than I have had taking it to any of the 'foreign auto' mechanics in Portland.

Both John and Steve are probably the best mechanics I have ever had. There tirelessly debug, explain, pinpoint and double check everything they do. They charge FAR LESS than they are worth. I have brought them my '79 Mercedes Benz 300D, '84 Volvo 240, and '95 Subaru Legacy Outback. In over 4 years and 30 repairs, inspections, routine maintanence, they made one small mistake, didn't quibble with me in the slightest, and had me bring it back and fix it within the hour even though they were slammed busy. When my life was busy and I was overworked, they kept my cars running wonderfully in a less than hospitable climate and never made a fuss over everything they did. As the daughter of a mechanic I know how much effort they put into their business and hope they know, just how much it made a difference for me!
