Have been doing business with them for many years. They are always honest and highly professional. I would always take their advice on any problem with my cars.

I have been a customer for 30 years. They are very competent, ethical beyond description, reasonably priced, and explain any repair or diagnosis thoroughly. They are located near Vanderbilt and have a great reputation with faculty,students and local office workers. I don't use them for oil changes because they stay very busy and its a hassell to schedule. But for preventive maintenance and repairs, they can't be beat. They work on cars manufactured in the US and Japan. It's a small shop, so I'd recommend calling ahead for an appointment. I'd say the knowledge and experience is up there near the Klick and Klack guys;however, the levity and politics will fall on the other end of the spectrum.

The mechanics at Woods Garage are some of the most honest men and women I know. I would trust them with any car I have.

A small shop, but one can usually get in within a day or two of calling ahead. Carl Wood has always given his personal attention to the problem, and often calls to report what needs to be done (or the mechanic on the car will call).

This is like an old-timey garage with REAL people who like to and know how to work on cars. They picked up the phone right away and I got to talk to one of the mechanics who correctly diagnosed my master cylinder problem right away and said I could come over and get some brake fluid until the could fix it. They fixed it a timely fashion and my old Honda drives like a charm. I'd been driving around with a leaky cylinder for years and my old garage never even told me! I'm sticky with Carl Woods: fast, competent, and reasonable!

Carl may sometimes be grumpy, but you couldn't ask for a more competent and honest mechanic. And don't bother taking a VW to him - he won't work on them. He chewed me out for replacing my previous Nissan with a Jetta. I'm now back to owning another Nissan. Carl was right, as usual.

I've had my car in this shop many times for maintenance (tune up, oil changes, new belts and hoses) and repairs (oxygen sensor, brake switch, loose spark plug wire, new water pump, etc.) Probably every mechanic who's worked in that shop for the last five years has done something to my car at some time, and everything has been done right the first time. If I have a complaint, it would be that they sometimes do things too well. When I asked them to replace my spark plug wires, I also got a complete tune-up and an $8 air filter, so the bill was a lot more expensive than I anticipated. The parts tend to be more expensive that what is available at the local auto parts store, but they're higher quality, sometimes higher than I think my 16-year- old car needs. However, even though I might be able to get things done more cheaply somewhere else, I stick with this garage because they tell me the truth, they fix the problem, and they don't try to extract money from me by giving me a list of other things they could do.
