I drive a 1990 Honda Prelude S. It has almost 150,000 miles on the *original* clutch. I started going to this shop five years ago, when I got a solicitation from them in the mail that talked about why they believe Hondas are the best cars on the road today. After that many miles on one clutch, I am inclined to agree, but I agreed even before I had accumulated all of that mileage, so I went to Select Auto. As a single woman shopping for car repairs on my own, I have been told some outrageous stories in the past--one shop tried to convince me that my car had clogged fuel injectors. I said "hey, nice try, but the car is carbureted." They said, "well...a car can have fuel injectors and a carburetor!" In contrast, Paul Milske has showed me the parts from every repair he has made on my car, and explained what about them showed him that they needed to be replaced. He has loaned me the shop van to drive overnight, his employees have given me rides to and from my home, and when I accidentally bounced a check to him, he did not charge me for it. When I took the car on a 10,000-mile road trip through the Western US, Paul and other mechanics at Select Auto gave me all the advice I needed about driving in the desert (which I had never done before), carrying a gas can (which I wasn't doing at the time), and how to tell a good shop from a bad shop in a pinch (this was a big help when my a/c compressor busted in Butte, Montana and I had to have parts airlifted in from Portland, OR. If you're ever in Butte, Lisac's Auto Service is a safe bet). I'm hesitant to post this recommendation, because it might mean that the shop will be more swamped than it already is...oh well.

The VW dealer stink. I found these guys and they are pretty good. Paul is a former airplane mechanic and seems pretty dedicated to doing well with his business. I regularly recommend them.

I've been going to Select with a Honda Civic for several years. Paul is absolutely great with service. I have to admit, however, that the last several times I went (and it has been about 15,000 miles since I was in), someone was working the desk who seemed much less competent/trustworthy. For that reason, I'm not sure I trust the shop as much as I once did.

I have been visiting Select Auto Services for the past 3 years. Walt Hayes has been the best mechanica, I have encountered in Ann Arbor. Very honest about the repairs that would be required on my used Nissan Sentra. One time, I thought that there was a problem and he clearly said that it is only an aesthetic problem and that he would recommend a repair only if I really wanted it to be done. They have always provide a ride and a pickup.

Paul and Walt have the most reputable shop I have taken a vehicle to. Another shop recommended a repair when I took my truck in for brakes, and I refused both repairs. I took my truck to Select, and was told the other repair was not needed and had only the brakes done. I have been a loyal customer ever since, for about 6 years now. I consistantly recommend them to friends. Their prices are fair, their service beyond approach.
