Wow. The Shop is a breath of fresh air. For the first time in years, now that I've found The Shop, my car is safe and running right. I highly recommend them.

Spencer has always been extremely fair and diligent, and he knows his Subarus! He has done minor repairs for us in short order, but works best when you can leave your car for a few days. He also does oil changes for $10 (on Subarus), only slightly more for other makes. We will continue to take our cars there, no doubt.

An excellent shop. They specialise in Subarus, but they will work on most cars. The shop is a little tricky to get to if you haven't been their before, but the owner gives excellent directions. The mechanic has almost 30 years experience, so he knows what he's talking about. He is also polite and takes time to explain things. Here's a new one, he also doesn't mind do-it-yourselfers. His prices are very reasonable, even oil changes for just $20.

Always take the time to explain the problem fully, it's hard to find a guy this good.

We felt very comfortable leaving our car in this mechanic's very capable hands. He is now 'our mechanic' and we will recommend him to all our friends.

My water pump was replaced by them a couple of years ago. I went in for a leak, and they told me it was the pump. The warranty had long since expired, but they fixed it free anyway. I paid nothing. This shop is AWESOME!

Wonderful mechanic of the old school. Great family shop, I found the prices to be incredibly reasonable. Always take the time to chat about the car, the work, or anything- a real find.
