I was like a lamb to the slaughter...My car DIED, then went berserk on the morning of my first day at a new job. The alarm was going off, the doors locked and unlocked, it was like sitting in Chritine, the Possesed Car! I had NO IDEA where to have my '96 Mustang towed, so I asked the Ewing Bros. tow truck driver to take the car and myself to the dealership. We were 1/3 of the way there when the driver said I reminded him too much of his daughter to allow me to go to a dealership for service. He suggested the Stop Shop where I told the owner/manager of 17 years, "I'm sure it's electrical, do whatever it takes to fix it, it's my only car!" (I didn't know any better!) The tow truck driver (whose name I regretfully cannot remember) gave me a ride to work and I tried to concentrate on my new job. The shop had promised to call when they had a diagnosis and an estimate. I was preparing myself for a long wait and bad, (really bad!) news. Forty-five minutes later the owner was on the phone, calling to let me know that it was only the battery (boy, did I feel dumb!)and the car was ready to be picked up. The receptionist actually came to my place of work in her own vehicle, picked me up on my lunch hour and drove me back to the shop where I was charged only for the new battery and 1/2 hour of labor. I have since recommended the shop to a coworker and a friend, both of whom had similarly positive experiences. I plan to use them for many years to come.

After going to two shops to get my A/C repaired and being told by both that a new compressor,recharge,etc.for $1500.00 was needed and not living in the area full time I was at a loss as to what to do.The compressor was relatively new and I could not believe it was shot.Found this shop thru Car Talk. To make a long story short two O- Rings fixed the problem.Cost $101.00 which included labor.

The address is 6275 Harrison #17, in the Park 2000 Center. We have been taking our 1975 Chevy van to this establishment since 1990. Although they specialize in brakes, shocks, and front end work, Mike Brown, the owner, will take care of other problems. He knows what he is talking about, he will tell you the truth and his labor charge is reasonable for Las Vegas, $70.00/hour.

I went to the Stop Shop (6275 Harrison Drive, #17, Las Vegas, NV 89120, for those who wish to know the address) after searching through the recommendations right here on Car Talk. They were right on! A mechanic named Greg worked on my 1987 Mercury Grand Marquis and was straight up with me about any and all problems the car had or would possibly have in the near future to help aid me in my decision about whether or not to buy a new car. Greg also explained all of the repairs needed for the car very clearly, giving prices where he could make clear-cut estimates. Greg knew that I didn't have much money and that the decision about whether to fix the air-conditioning in my car (the main problem with the impending heat of Vegas summers looming on the horizon) was a difficult decision, and he only charged me $35 for the diagnostic that he ran on my entire car (it took an hour of his time) with none of the typical pushing to get me to fix the car. In fact, he seemed perfectly comfortable with having me walk out of there only having paid him $35 for the diagnostic and no work. This could definitely be due to the fact that the Stop Shop is clearly over-loaded with work, and Greg didn't need extra work (by the way, call ahead! You may need to leave your car there for a couple of days), but he still kept prices incredibly low! The Stop Shop is a real stand-up of a dying breed of mechanics!

I supplied the Brake parts, wheelbearings and fluid and they did the work... which was great, they have the tools, experince and time. Their Labor rate was fair. Experince was Honest and Fair.

I found them on this web site and needed to go to some one I could trust. I found them to be very good, and they worked hard to correct my problem. I will recommend them as a trustworthy mechanics to everyone I know!

Brought a 1994 Chevy S10 pickup to the shop, needed to have the starting motor replaced. I tried replacing it myself, got stuck on the last bolt holding the starting motor in place. I had stopped at Autozone the day before, and they were very helpful. So I wanted to buy the motor from Autozone. I spoke with Mike, the owner, and he had no problem with me bringing the motor with me. His price for installing the starting motor was $120, which I thought was fair.. That last bolt was a pain in the neck. ADENDUM.....Another shop wanted $190 to install the motor. I liked Mike and his mechanics. I feel comfortable bringing my car to him. Will do so again, if the need arises.

Mike and his crew have kept two older vehicles in tip top running condition for over ten years now. One was a '90 Cadillac Sedsn DeVille; the other a '94 Mercury Grand Marquis. Because of the extreme heat, Las Vegas can be a real challenge to keeping a car running well and breaking down when it's 110 degrees in the shade (of which there is none) can be a real dangerous problem, but I have always driven without fear of breaking down. I can always count on them for an honest assessment of the problem and a great job taking care of it. I also rely on them for regular maintenance; brakes, shocks, oil chnages, etc. They really care about their customers comfort and safety.

The classic honest mechanics. Dirty hands, smokin' butts, dirt & grease all over the place, etc. Mike Brown knows the value of repeat business. He won't well you anything you don't need. I have no clue if these guys are certified, but they are all old enough to have worked on Edsels, so I'm reasonably sure they know how to fix a car. They are located in a business park near McCarren Airport right underneath the approach path, so the closest neighbor, I think, is Wayne Newton, and the other direction is a cemetery. I guess that makes it about as safe a neighborhood as you can find. A decent honest guy who runs a decent honest car repair shop, in an otherwise very dishonest town.
