I absolutely love this place. It's run by a husband and wife team, originally from Russia, both Univeristy educated but did auto work for a hobby. Here in the US realized there was more money in auto repair so went into it full time. The way they take care of the customer is better than most doctor's offices I've been to. And they charge reasonable rates! They specialize in foreign makes but will work on anything. They always give fair and accurate advice and appointments. What more can I say? They have letters of thanks from customers on the wall, a Jaguar engine coffee table and photos of an art piece with Yugos made into various objects.

Mike & Tina Levin are hardworking, honest & knowledgable. Even though they are a 35 mi trip for me (each way!) I would not think of bringing my vehicles anywhere else when they need diagnosis and/or serious work.

I would not think of taking my car anywhere else. If not for Mike, Tina and their staff, I would not be driving another Mercedes. They know and appreciate automobiles. I have been going there for 5 years and have recommended them to everyone I know.

My Saturns throttle control was behaving badly, leaving with no throttle control at times other than shutting the car off to stop her. Problem was it only occurred at random. Mike and his staff had my car in the shop a few times and spent many hours working to locate the culprit. There hard work paid off the car runs like like new and gives me no trouble. Because of there efforts I feel safe driving my car again. Would send anyone to Capitol Mechanics with complete confidence. For me it's the only shop I use.

The employees at Capitol Mechanics have always taken their time to explain any and all problems that I have come to them with. Top notch customer service.

This is the best car repair place I have seen, and I moved around quite a bit around the country, seeing a lot of car mechanics in the process. Mike managed to put together a team of top-rated mechanics specializing in imported cars, and it seems that there is no such problem, small or big, that they could not handle successfully. I have four cars in the household, and they all have been through Mike's hands with great success. I am convinced that I have saved thousands of dollars thanks to their thoughtful and budget- oriented attitude. I have an older 940 Volvo, which developed what appeared to be an unsolvable problem. Three different "Volvo specialists", including a Volvo dealership, had given up on the car; the dealership mechanic simply recommended to take the car to a junk yard. Then I took the car to Mike, and they fixed it literally in a couple of hours! The car is now in great shape (thanks to Mike and his team), and I expect it to run for at least another 100K miles. Overall, consider yourself lucky if your car is in Mike's shop. I would never go anywhere else, even for a small repair.
