Went to this shop after reading reviews here. I usually work on cars myself, so if it's a job I can't, or don't want to do, I don't really know where to go -- except to throw a dart at the phonebook. Mark was easy to deal with, and gave me a few options on how things could be fixed, depending on my budget. Work was also completed faster than I expected, and the place was full of cars -- so they weren't waiting for me to show up so they'd have something to work on. Based on my experience, I'll definately go back the next time I need work done at a shop.

Mark Hilla runs the most honest repair shop I know of. In one case my minivan had a problem. As I was driving home, after dropping it off, he called me on my cell and told me that it had a bad head gasket. He said that was a problem with that engine and that he had called two Chrysler dealers and one was willing to repair it for half price as a warranty issue. So, not only did Mark give up a $600+ repair job, he found someone who would do it for half price. Amazing! I am a faithful customer now and he always promptly repairs the problem at a fair price. I highly recommend Mark Hilla and Mechanical Man for honest, well performed car repairs.

Mark the owner is one of the most honest guys around if he dont think you need something he will tell you it not worth if to do now but if you need something done he will tell you up front how much and it will cost . He also stands behind his work 120% if your not happy he will do what neede to be done

Mark and his crew last month sent almost 2 hours(on 2 visits - one to find the problems and to make sure the problems were corrected) inspecting a 2006 Buick Lacrosse that I was considering buying. They pointed out steering, brake and paint issues that I went back to the dealer and had corrected. COST NOTHING. Mark over the years has saved my friends, family and myself thousands. His services and honesty are one of my most valued resources. I recommend him to everyone.

I found this shop because of Car Talk. That was years ago now, and I must say, that I have NEVER experienced such a good relationship with an auto repair shop. I don't even live near this shop anymore and still bring my car only to them. The owner, Mark, is super knowledgeable and very very honest. I just bought a new/used car and wouldn't even consider buying it until Mark looked at it. His mechanics are all really nice and respectful guys. They have never done work on my car that it didn't really need and their prices cannot be beat. I will never go to another shop. Plus, being a woman, it's nice to have mechanics that don't talk down to you!

This shop is the best. I now live almost 30 minutes away, and I signed up for AAA Plus just to get the unlimited towing so I would always be able to go to this mechanic. Mark and the guys at this shop have always made me feel welcome and treated honestly. They have never done a repair that the car didn't need and have always been straight up when telling me that the car does or does not need something. I will never, never go somewhere else.

These guys are the most honest bunch of mechanics I have ever come across. I cannot tell you how much money Mark has saved me over the years. I recommend him to everyone and will never take my car anywhere else.
