I've been going to Aposhian for years--long enough so I consider Rick Aposhian a friend. On the few occasions when I've taken any of my cars (or my wife's car, or my kids' cars) somewhere else for an estimate, and then taken the car to Aposhian) Aposhian always comes in with a lower estimate. I've taken cars to Aposhian long and often enough so there have been a few times when I questioned whether a problem was repaired. On those few ocassions, they've always reworked the car and fixed the problem at no additional charge. I'll continue to use Aposhian's Garage.

Fantastic work - it's wonderful that they have someone (Eileen) that can call and give info/updates - and she is KNOWLEDGEABLE on the phone. Always honest - almost always in and out in a day - and it only take a day or two to get in. I don't know how they do it!

These guys are competent, friendly, fair priced, give rides to and from the shop, keep in touch when it's a multi day job, they are clean, and their shop makes me think "these guys are good." They are crisply professional and still friendly. They replaced the head gasket on my truck and it runs great!

I live one mile from Aposhian Garage. One day my Pathfinder would not start and was in the garage. I tried jumping the battery to no avail. Called Aposhian and they sent a tow truck over, took my car to their shop, decided my battery was no longer any good and installed a completely new one -- for no charge whatsoever! The battery was only a year old and I hadn't even purchased it from them. No charge even for the towing. They are my favorite repair guys/gals.

They worked on my Dodge 3500 truck that I thought was going to need a new transmission. After they did the power flush it is like having a new truck it drives perfect. I also had them work on my Honda CRV and they fixed all the problems and the price they quoted was what I paid. Great service and I would recommend them to everyone.

We needed to find a place to do a quick repair. Searched the mechanic files and saw this place had good reviews and it was convenient to where we were staying. They did what we asked in a timely fashion and at a reasonable price. We would go there again and recommend them to others.

I had both front brake rotors replaced, my master cylinder replaced, and one rear wheel bearing replaced. The total (parts + labor + tax) came to $696.31. The parts were $359.75 and the labor was $320. This implies that their labor rate is slightly high, judging by what I've been reading on the net. I overpaid $50 on the parts (I compared the price on my invoice to the price on NAPA's website, and over the phone with a NAPA employee). However, it does seem that they used the better-quality parts that were available. There is a NAPA nearby, so the added cost wasn't for shipping charges. I'm told it's common practice for mechanics to get their parts at a wholesale prices, and charge a bit above actual retail value in order to turn a little profit. So, there's some *slight* dishonesty. They took me home and picked me up, which was nice (only a 5 minute drive). They didn't ask if I needed a ride, and I got the feeling that I was imposing on them a little by asking for one. The lady at the front desk (Eileen?) was all business, it seemed. I guess I feel that if I'm dropping $700 at your establishment, everyone should treat me like their best friend. After all, that is nearly two weeks worth of my pay, which I earn at a rather unpleasant job. I hate to see it vacuumed out of my pocket unceremoniously. I dropped my car off an hour or so before they closed. They had diagnosed its brake problems and had an estimate by 9am the next morning (an hour after they opened). I called them back 45 minutes later to approve the work. The work was completed around 4pm that day. So the car spent about 9 hours total in their garage. The repairs should have taken about 3-4 hours, MAX. They did say that they were "slammed", so I'll give them some leeway. The technician doing the work on my car seemed like a pleasant fellow. I asked him to keep the parts for me. I double-checked the rotor thickness after I got home. They were indeed in need of replacement, and not just resurfacing. So, at least he was honest about that. This is a good sign, because I've read that mechanics often try to replace rotors that don't need replacing. He didn't explain how he knew my wheel bearing needed replacing. He said the master cylinder only went down half way. All-in-all, I would rate them 'good', not great. They're definitely better than taking a car to Pep Boys or some other retail chain that's going rape your wallet (Pep Boys quoted me $851.89!).

My wife took our Toyota Sequoia to Aposhian last week for a state inspection. They told her it would not pass inspection because one of the front brake pads was 1/32" thick and the other side was 2/32" thick. They told us that the pads would need to be replaced immediately in order to pass inspection. This struck me as odd because the vehicle had been in to the dealer earlier in the week for a recall inspection and they had checked the brakes and advised us that the pads were at 5/32" and would need to be replaced in a year or two at the rate we drive the car. I'm a machinist and routinely measure parts to within 1/1000 of an inch so I pulled the wheels off the Sequoia and measured the pads myself. The thinnest of the 4 pads from both sides measured .155" which is 5/32". That is 5 times thicker than what Aposhian told us. I find this sort of dishonest business practice contemptible.

Receptionist is a huge see you next Tuesday. They Fixed one thing and broke something else. Took 2 days in the shop just to get an estimate. Ended up having to send a guy in to talk to them cuz they quoted me so high (I'm a female) went to pick it up during business hours and they were not there.
