I have had nothing but good experiences with these guys - they always offer a better price than the dealership, they never try to do work I haven't requested, and they don't take advantage of my less-than-encyclopedic car knowledge. I couldn't decide whether to recommend them or keep this little gem to myself, but I finally decided to share.

I have been taking my cars to Durham Tire for more than 15 years. I generally drive cars until they are so old that parts can only be found in a museum, with a current total of 350,000 miles on 3 cars. All oil changes, tires, and repairs on honda's, a subaru, and a chevy truck have been performed at Durham Tire on a routine basis. The owner and his son are great people. They are honest, reliable, reasonably priced, and laid back. Rarely, for more complex repairs or when their excellent Honda mechanic is off, I have repairs done elsewhere. You can't go wrong with Durham Tire.

Good for tires, but questionable for competent mechanic work. I took my Ford E-150, the big work van, to them for what I thought was a sticking accelerator. They absolutely could not figure out the problem. With a little research, I discovered that it was a well-known symptom of a dirty "throttle body" and easy to fix. I even heard it described on Car Talk. So, I went to the Ford dealer, and they immediately identified it and cheaply fixed it. On another occasion they told me that someone had poured motor oil into my coolant reserve tank. I figured, "that's impossible" but, yes, there was motor oil in the coolant reserve. They had no idea how it got there. I took it to the Ford dealer, and they knew and told me immediately that there was a known problem area where oil can leak into the coolant. (Sounds like a Ford design problem to me.) Anyway, Durham Tire and Auto could not fix it, but the Ford dealer fixed it easily. There's no easy answer to this dilemma regarding using the dealer mechanics or an independent garage. Pros and cons both ways. My sense is that more independent garages should narrow their specialty to one brand of auto and become completely competent in that make.
