Took my daughter's Tempo in for an A/C re-charge with my own R-134. Ed had told me his was $10 a can but I could bring my own. Within 5 minutes, Ed was back to tell me the compressor was not working, that he did not do that particular type A/C repair, gave me the name of someone who did and about what they would probably charge, then refused money for his time, effort, and knowledge! He does mostly preventative maintenance and he will be first on my list for such work in the future.

I've taken two Cars to Ed for the five years that we lived in Victoria. Since I have some mechanical knoweldge, Ed has pointed out things I could do myself on several occasions when he was real busy--no charge. On my Mustang, he has let me bring in the parts, and worked with me even when they were the wrong parts. He is not cheap, but he is well worth it.

Goes out of the way to fix my old car the best and cheapest way. If he doesn't handle the problem, refers to someone who can. Very honest. Makes friends out of customers (both me and my mother). Great business,If your car has electrical problems could not do any better.

I brought my 1994 to Big Ed's auto a couple of years ago. He was very courteous and friendly. After looking at the vehicle, he explained what the parts and labor would be up front. Finsished job earlier than expected and ended up being a few dollars cheaper as well. Thanks Big Ed!

Big Ed and Eddie are great. They are very competent and honest mechanics, and are well known as some of the best in Victoria. Big Ed can quickly evaluate just about any problem and tell you what it is, how long it will take, and how much it will cost. If it's something he can't handle, he'll be honest about it and tell you who the best people are to take it to. Once, he messed with my Mustang for the better part of the day, couldn't figure out the problem, and refused to accept payment even though he'd spent plenty of time messing with it. It eventually took a Ford dealer four days to figure out the problem, and it wasn't something easy to figure out.
