I have been using them since the early 1990s for Mazda, Toyota, and Subaru work. They are as honest as anyone could be. I have interacted with almost all of their mechanics and never had a problem. They are among the most reasonably priced auto service people around. Its a bit inconvenient for me to get to their shop from where I live, but I ALWAYS regret it if I use another shop.

Pete Richardson and Lindsay Carter saved my life this month when my car refused to pass inspection for the seventh day in a row. Not only did they rerun the inspection tool multiple times for the price of one inspection but they also found the manual references to how to get my car to pass inspection, which finally did the trick. Their persistence saved me thousands of dollars in labor and repairs.

Waiting room voted Best in Triangle in the Independent. When one of the mechanics tried to pull a fast one on me, the owner stepped in and made it more than right. I won't buy a car they won't service. Best mechanics on the planet. Great landscaping, great shop, great website, GREAT PEOPLE: http://www.waspauto.com

Wasp Automotive is the best mechanic for Japanese cars in Durham. When we were buying another car, we made sure that Wasp would work on it before purchasing it. The mechanics are great. The added bonus is their waiting room. It's very zen.

Wasp has worked on my '92 Accord EX twice. I could not be happier with the service. They gave me a ride to work, called me with updates and picked me up when the job was done. The installed a new water pump, timing and balance belts, rear brake pads, oil pressure sender, safety inspected the car, rotated the tires and changed the oil. I dropped it off at 9:00 and had it back by 5:30 the same day. The car has 318,000 miles on it and still pulls like a train. The guys at Wasp are the best.

I have been dealing with WASP since I moved to Durham in 1988. They were recommended to me and I have been recommending them since then. Pete believes in treating people right and they keep coming back. I have bought several new Toyotas and they have never seen the inside of the dealership.

They are great! I take my '05 Subaru Forester there anytime it needs service. The guys are all attentive, nice, and they do great work at a fair price. Unlike other places I have taken my vehicles, I found they treated me, as a female, with respect and didn't try to "pull the wool over my eyes." I'd been taking my car to the [surly] dealer while under warranty and was glad to have found WASP via the Car Talk website. Highly recommended.
