I have been using this shop for years after having problems with another local one. They have been able to diagnos and fix some pretty strange things, like belts that were installed new but were too narrow, leaking master cyclinder into interior that was a leaking radiator. They evn took me in once in the middle of the day when my water pump blew as I was just starting on a long trip and got me out that same day. I have often been surprised with a bill far lower than original estimate. Thanks Jim and crew, keep it up, we need you.

I was told, by another garage, that I had low compression in one of my cylinders and that I would need a valve job. R & L was recommended to me by a friend, and also by this site, so I took it there. I was informed that one of the spark plug wire boots wasn't seated properly, and it's been running great ever since! Being female, this was really appreciated!! Thanks R & L!

I have been providing work for B & T for several years. They have worked on '77 Ford pickup to several Buicks. I have never had to take a car back for "re-repair". Jim has made repairs at a moments notice on two occasions when I've had problems getting ready for a long trip.

After recently moving to the area, I went searching for a new mechanic. I started my search here, found this shop, and decided to call. I explained the check engine light was on and asked if they could help. While the lady who answered the phone was fairly polite, her only two solutions were the $40.00 diagnostic appointment, the $80.00 an hour appointment, and asked if I wanted an appointment for Friday? I asked if there was any way I could just get them to read the diagnostic code since I had just changed the batteries and now the check engine light was lit? She was adamant the check engine light had nothing whatsoever to do with replacing the batteries. Her answer was either the $40.00 appointment or the $80.00 appointment. Sadly, she then suggested a local Parts house would read the code for me because they would not! I took her advice, it took the local parts house all of three minutes to read, said the code was a "power interrupt signal", said it was most likely related to the battery replacement, reset the code, and sent me on my way. The light has not come back on since! I guess my search for a new shop continues...
