Very honest. Paul has worked me in on a tight schedule, and has always done really good work.

I've taken my cars to the Clintons for more than 10 years-- these guys do a great job for a really reasonable price and are exceedingly honest. They won't fix anything until it's completely broken, and if the problem is elusive, they'll send you somewhere else. Ideal for routine mainenance, but be prepared to see more than one mechanic if your problem is tricky.

As a woman who does not know very much about cars it was impressive to find a shop that was so honest. The car makes a few noises that might have been exploited at another shop. They took the time to explain to me what they had done to make sure my car could make our planned 1200mile trip. They also took the time to explain what some of the noises were and their effects on the car without pressuring me to come back and fix them.

Second generation proprietor, Only complaint I have had in seven years, is they didn't hear the worn brakes whistle on my Toyota, which I sent it in for. I asked them to look again and they then replaced the pads. Four blocks from major bus routes, probably have other bus on same street. Two blocks to the European Deli. (One other complaint: they don't work on Mercedes... Oh, that's my fault.)

Clinton Auto Repair is one of those nice "honest shops" with decent prices and great service. Not only do they quote a realistic estimate, but I've known the service people to explain details of a problem and give a good recommendation of where to go for service they don't deal with. They are next to a good bus line if needed.
