I took my car in because I thought there was a problem with the bearings. However, after Jason checked it out, it turns out the bearings were fine and the brake rotors and pads needed to be replaced. The fact that they did not go ahead and charge me for new bearings was a sign that they were honest and reliable--they could have told me that the bearings needed to be replaced, and charged me a ton, and I wouldn't have known the difference. Jason did a great, very thorough job on my car, and I really appreciated the little extras he did, like clean the back drum brakes. Also Jason was nice enough to figure out something with my gas cap that was making the check engine light come on, even though nothing was wrong with engine. That light had been on for TWO YEARS and even the dealership couldn't figure out how to turn it off--that was really nice and very much appreciated. I think they are reasonably priced, and they are very friendly and knowledgeable and careful in their work. They are also right on the bus line (#6 on the AATA) if you need to just drop your car off. I would very much recommend them.

They cut a piece out of my exhaust pipe and welded a new one in for half the price of other quotes. Other shops either would not do it because of the proximity to the oil pan, or wanted to replace the entire part coming off the manifold. Jamie's charged me only $150.

Pete and his team are the only people I let touch my car other than myself. My car is 30 years old and rare, so most mechanics don't have the slightest idea what to do with it. Even getting an oil change can be a huge problem elsewhere. These guys take their time, don't make assumptions, do research when necessary, and all of that before they start tearing things apart or pricing. In addition, every time I have needed them, the guys will tell me how to save money, even if it might cost them. I can't comment on Fast and Cheap, if that is what you are looking for. I can tell you that they always get it right the first time.
