I have been taking my cars to Rich (the owner) for years, ever since a friend at work recommended him. I haven't been able to get out there lately because I no longer work near him (it's way out of the way, otherwise) & I've been so paranoid about going somewhere else I've been putting off everything but oil changes till I can get out his way. He's a great guy & very honest - he'll tell me straight up if I'm asking him to do something that's a waste of money. I suggested him to my husband, who was driving a Volvo at the time. The Volvo seemed to be out of alignment - he'd taken it to three other shops for re-alignment, but it was still pulling a bit to the left. Rich checked it out & found that the frame had been bent in an accident over a year earlier. Too much expense & too small a problem to be worth fixing. No charge for the diagnosis. You do need to call & make an appointment (586-739-7810) because he's usually pretty busy.

I started going to Rich a couple of years ago on a recommedation from a friend. He was so nice in explaining everything and I felt he was reasonable. I had some very bad experiences with dealerships where I know for certain that they wanted me to have unnecessary work done. When I leave Rich's shop I never feel like I was taken. I waited once for my car and I observed him with some elderly people...he was so kind to them and you could tell that they trusted him. I spoke to one man that told me in his business he had a fleet of trucks and he would never take them anywhere else for repair. I have and will recommend Rich and his mechanics to anyone with the confidence that they will be very satisfied!!!!

I've had new tires installed and my girlfriend had a wheel bearing replaced. Both times the work was done quite quickly without problems. Next time I need work done on either of my vehicles (a 2006 Civic or my girlfriend's ~2000 Cavalier) I'll be taking them back.

Excellent experience with Richard. More than once he has told us that we don't need to do something that other shops have recommended.
