I have introduced Dutch to my parents, sister and fiancee and he still talks to me. The most recent example of his honesty comes with my parents' Volvo. They have a problem that could be one of two expensive problems. He wants them to take it to a Volvo garage to use their more specialized equipment instead of guessing incorrectly and charging them enough for a small boat.

I have been a customer of Dutch's and Jimmy for approximately 15 years. During this period they have done both preventative and emergency work and repairs on my oldsmobile, pontiac, Saab, Ford Van, Toyota Van, Volkswagen and Hyundai and have I found them to be extremely honest, capable and responsive to the needs of their customers. A good trustworthy mechanic is like gold, rare and precious. Keep up the good work guys.

My 1990 Honda Accord seemed to have everything go wrong with it the 3 years I was living in West Trenton, NJ. Of course, some of it was my fault. I had to have a muffler replaced, but that was after I scraped it really hard against an enormous bump. I had the air conditioner, the oxygen sensor, and a couple of CV boots replaced. They taught me that I didn't have to bring it in for a tune-up every six months - saving me a ton of money I might have spent at the dealership. (By the way, that dealership really did me in for things I totally didn't need....but that's another commentary.) They replaced the fuse for the back lights and only charged me $2 - and I know nothing about cars, so they could have really taken me for a lot of money - especially if there were mutterings about 'electrical system failure.' I really needed the car in the middle of replacing the air conditioner, so they put the car back together (something about the bottom plate) so I could drive it for the weekend. They refused to work on the car when they didn't see anything wrong - I had an intermittent starting problem and since everytime I brought it in, they didn't see anything, I wasn't charged. Of course, it didn't get fixed, but again, they could have taken me each time I brought it in for that problem. They almost always had the car fixed within a single workday. As far as I know, they haven't screwed anything up with my car so I can't comment on that. Also, I have no idea how they treat male customers, but they were always courteous and professional to me. They would call if the repair was large/expensive, and ask if it was okay to go ahead - especially at the beginning, until they realized I'd sign on any dotted line. They never tried to upsell me. The reason that I don't rate the safe neighborhood higher is because they're only 2 blocks away from my old apartment building, and I got my car stolen from that building - although the car didn't get very far (~5 miles) because I'd been procrastinating about filling the nearly empty gas tank. They did fix the ignition on the break-in (what an ugly-looking thing that was). They're right on a bus route - and the bus will pick up and drop off within a 100 feet of the garage.

I recently had Dutch work on my 2000 Cavalier after it had been sitting idle in my garage for over a year. I asked him to look it over and give me his opinion about what needed to be done to get the car ready for sale. I was expecting to hear a laundry list of problems that "had to be fixed right away". To my pleasant surprise that was not the case. Dutch's advise was that I only repair the necessary things that would enable me to sell it. He recommended that it wasn't wise to spend all kinds of money repairing things that would not enhance the resale value in any way. All in all I got new brake pads, rotors 4 new tires an oil change and new air filter for less than $400. I was very impressed with Dutch's honesty and willingness to take the time to explain what was being done to my car. I would recommend him to anyone I know and even those I don't.

We have been bringing our cars in for service for at least 5 years, and have been impressed with the quality of service. I never have that "I've just been scr****" feeling that I have had in the past with dealerships in the same area.
