Not surprisingly, there are several auto shops named "Don's" in Philly - this one is on Girard near Frankford and the Girard Market-Frankford El station, in the Fishtown neighborhood. This place is not run by 'Don' any more, but by two guys who worked for him and bought the shop. My wife and I have lived in Philly for 2 years and after trying out a few shops with little satisfaction, we're very happy with the guys at Don's. They're honest and reliable and have listened to our problems carefully. Recently, my wife's Ford Focus had a coolant leak. We took it to Don's and when they couldn't find anything, I showed them where I thought it was leaking. Once the mechanic saw what I was pointing out, they followed up on it and found a bad bushing - I was impressed that they were willing to listen without too much ego.

Don's auto in Fishtown is by far one of the best shops in all of philly. Both Steve and Henry are extremely reliable and never over-sell you. I am in a touring band for a living - so I place a lot of miles on my cars - and both the guys are always willing to look at something I find wrong. They will take the time out of their day to either listen via the phone or come outside and take a peek. That is rare - esp in Philly. They also do a lot of work on trucks and so - there knowledge is not just limited to smaller automobiles. My landlord takes all of his work vehicle to them and that is how i was turned on to them.
