The first clue I had that these guys were really honest is that, when they don't know something, they say so up front, they don't charge for the time they spent not figuring it out, and, having eliminated some possibilities, they send you somewhere that can fix it. The vast majority of stuff they do well, quickly, and relatively inexpensively, and they're always very pleasant.

Mike's garage is about 15 miles from my home, and I can pass a hundred garages on the way to drop off one of my two cars (Ford Escort wagon,Ford Ranger) for repairs. Always straight in answers; when on rare occasion a problem is not fully fixed, his attitude is ALWAYS "bring it back, I don't want to have any customer getting less than the best we can

Took my Honda Civic there at 7:30am to have a new axle put in. Buddy had diagnosed the problem and called me by 9:00 with an estimate, and by 2:00 the whole repair was done, all for a reasonable price. AND, he even asked me if I'd like him to lock the keys in the car so I could pick it up after hours. Really nice guy and a fantastic job!

We have been going to Buddy's for about 3 years now. I am not mechanically ignorant, just a maladroit. They are have always been honest and inexpensive. One time, we had to take one of the cars back to "re-fix" something. They were quick to own the problem and were very resonable dealing with the issue. In previous posts, someone mentioned Buddy uses cheaper parts. Just tell Buddy to use the more expensive parts and he will! We live 15 miles from his shop and would never go anywhere else! Would like to see some nice coffee with cable tv-- hint, hint.

Buddy and Jeff always have been willing to ask (and answer) the question, "Do I really need to do this [repair/replacement]?" Most mechanics give you the impression that you need to do any replacement (example: struts) yesterday. At Broad Street, they have frequently said, "You don't really need to do X. The car is fine." Or, "Your car is older, I wouldn't put the money into it, it is not really a problem yet." This is outstandingly honest and practical. And very rare, since obviously they would make more money if they always told their customers that the job needed to be done.
