Earl, the service manager, takes personal concern. I was out of town so Earl and his wife personally delivered my wife's car to our home, so my wife would have the car to use after they fixed it. They are very honest. They have serviced my five cars over the last 4 years I have my oil and tires serviced at Kost, but when serious engine work was needed for my volvo, the guys at Kost recommended Nick's garage, since they had the latest instruments (other than a dealer).

My family has been using Nick's services for almost 20 years, and I've yet to see them mess anything up! All the mechanics, including Nick himself, have listened to our funny noises, and our lists of weird symptoms (and we've had some doozies!) then done their best to rectify the problems. Last month I needed my car inspected and, of course, left it till the last day of the month! None of the big chains would even TALK to me, but Earl at Nicks got me in for the next day, and got me back in my car in record time, even with the repair I needed. I'm married to a former certified mechanic, tow-truck driver, state vehicle inspector- and these guys are the only ones HE trusts!

Great place to go. I have been going to this place as long as I've had a car and they've taken care of every problem I've ever had. They even fixed the latch on the tailgate on my Jeep for 70 bucks when the bodyshop that my insurance company recommended wanted 800 just to fix the cosmetic damage and not even the latch. Going to miss this place when I move.

We have been using them for almost 30 years now. Never have had a problem and have recommended them to several of our friends. They are honest and dependable. Earl will always call first to advise of any unexpected situation which they may find in the course of doing the requested work. Everyone should have a mechanic like Nick's Garage!

I have had a long relationship with this shop over the years, with several different vehicles and prefer their work over closer repair shops. Have only been unhappily surprised once for the work/price but I got over it... Many other occasions it was lower than expected and/or the problem was pretty far removed from what I anticipated. (IE: thought a sensor/valve in the manifold was bad (a $600.00+ repair)and it turned out to be a damaged vacuum hose! All in all, a good place for repair work!

These guys are GREAT mechanics. They have fixed three different problems over the last five years in a timely manner. One of the front wheels was making a noise, preparatory to falling off, and they found the problem. My brakes were on their way out, but couldn't get past the guys at Nick's. Any hard turn was causing a loud, scary noise, but not anymore. Today, I called this morning about the slow leak in my driver's side front tire. They didn't have time, but said that I could come and wait for it. When I got there, I mentioned to Nick (Earl was out for some kind of an appointment) that I was also having intermittent problems with the fan on my heater/ac. We both thought that it was probably an electrical short. BAD NEWS. GOOD NEWS. They found a little corroded piece of wire and replaced it! Their prices are fair and their skills are extraordinary.
