Don's garage does convenient things, like dropping the car off for us (granted, we only live a block away). In addition, they will check out cars before we buy. They checked out 5 cars for us at no charge before they gave us a thumbs up on one (we bought them a case of Molson). I had a master cylinder go bad after a little more than a year and they replaced it free of charge--they didn't even charge for labor.

They know what they are doing and go to the touble to get things right. They are also pretty friendly and seem to charge reasonable rates.

I have had several vehicles in for repairs with Don's. Most of the work was transmission rebuilds. On two occasions I had up shift problems under load with different trucks. I thought for sure it was going to require a rebuild so I dropped the vehicle off and a couple hours later I got a call that it was ready. Don said it was the fuel filter! He could have 'taken' me for a rebuild at that time and I would not have know the difference but he was honest and did not do that. Since that first experience I have returned several times for him to do major transmission work, he even rebuilds torque converters in the shop and gave me the tour.

I found Don's Performance Center on my way through Harrisburg when my car's Check Engine light came on and an odd fluttering sound came from the engine. I called a local Honda dealership first and they were too busy to look at the car for about two and a half hours. When I called Don's, I hadn't even half finished the explanation of what was wrong before I was told, "Sure, bring it in and we'll have a look." They were great about looking at it immediately when I arrived, and spent an hour and a half running various diagnostics on the Vtec. They were very thorough, but between sitting a few minutes with the engine off and an easy 20 minute drive from where the problem first began to Don's, the issue had seemed to work itself out. They only charged me for a half hour of labor, and the car ran normally for the rest of the trip. I was impressed with the quick and friendly service, that they listened carefully to my description of the problem, and that they charged a very fair price. Harrisburg, this is a great place to get quality auto repair service, even if you're just passing through town.
