Most honest guy you will ever encounter. will tell you exactly the way it is, will NOT charge you a penny more than what it's worth, and will stand behind his work 100%. absolutely unbelievable fellow. small garage, his own place, kind of out of the way for most people, but if you can get to him, you will save yourself a whole load of trouble and money. he knows a bunch of other good mechanics as well that will do the job if he doesn't have the skills or the time. nice guy too ! I wish there were more like him. all my friends go there now.

I have a 1985 BMw with over 250,000 miles on it. Over the past three years Andy and I have been working together on restoring this car to the best it can be. He has been nothing but helpful with all my needs and reasonable in price to boot. I would reccomend him to anyone!

Andy has been great working on our Mercedes, he was reccomended years ago by a friend and we have been with for for many cars now. He has gone out of his way to help us in many ways.

Andy quickly and correctly figures out what's wrong. He then is completely willing to explain the problem, even to a totally machine-challenged person. Problems started when a neighborhood gasoline station did the 60K mile tune-up and put in new, non-platinum, spark plugs last summer. Car ['99 Maxima] very quickly began to "buck" and so I reurned [twice] but computer- analysis didn't give a specific code no did the road-test give them a clue. So I checked with this board's recommendations and went to Andy. Specs for this model, so I later learned from Andy, state spark plugs don't need to be changed until 90K and ONLY platinum plugs are to be used. Andy replaced the new non-platiumn plugs [Andy said they were very good plugs just not what the specs required]. Problem abated for 98% of the time. When I returned [for the 2% problem] computer-reads & test drive showed nothing but this week [11 months after this saga began] the check-engine light came on and a computer-read showed a code 1320. Andy read manufacture's notices and other data-base reports and concluded new ignition coils were needed [Nissan says coils could well be a problem BUT their new coils are much better...]. After [six] new coils all's running very well.

Have been going to this shop for years. Prior to starting this shop, Andy Schranck worked for the Volvo dealer. He has all the competence without any of the dealer's priciness or rigidity. We have two old Volvos so he sees us a lot, but going to Andy has been a real money saver for us over owning a new car. He is a great person and always makes sure everything is done right and fair to the customer. We will never need another mechanic as long as Andy is around. I would bring him any make vehicle without hesitation.

I've never found a shop before that I felt I could trust. I was introduced to the owner Andy through a friend and I can never imagine going anywhere else. It's not the most lavish shop in the world, but they do good work much cheaper than my dealer or gas stations I've been to. I'll be back.

My car started overheating on the way to the ferry. The check engine light went from green to fire engine red in a matter of minutes. Stranded, I left it on the side of the road and left a voice mail for Andy as I had ot head into work. He not only located the car, had it towed and then picked me up 4 hours later with a working car, door-to-door service, and no mark-up on the towing or extraneous fees. Wow. Great service, high integrity, and fair prices.

Been bringing my BMW to the dealer since it was new, and I had finally had it with being ripped off. A friend recommended ASC, and I couldn't have been happier.

Always honest, I went in with a sunroof leak thinking I needed the gasket replaced; Andy told me to look at the sunroof drains and, voila, I unplugged them, and no more leak. I am pretty sure that the Lexus dealer would have done something very different. No charge for free advice and great people, what more can you ask for in a garage.

Took my '97 Subaru to them due to a check engine light. They took the code, it was a knock sensor issue, and told me to just drive around until it either happened again or corrected itself. Not a penny out of my pocket. They then gave me advice for making sure it passes the next NJ inspection. Finally, they looked at my clutch resistance spring which broke, a $5 part which no one would give me the time of day to analyze. A+ and will bring the car to them every time, which you should do with your car/truck.
