John Foley is a decent man. He provides quality service, free advice, backs his work, and always charges a reasonable price.

John and his son are probably two of the best mechanics in the tri-city area.

half the time john says - why do you want to spend money on that - it's not worth fixing.

Foley's garage is a breath of fresh air! John and Sean do a great job. You couldn't bring your car to a better place!

I've been taking our cars to Foley's for 20+ years. They are the kind of old-fashioned family shop (father/son) that you dream of finding. One time they had my car overnight and someone backed into it during the night, so John took it to a body shop and had a new fender put on and painted, at his own expense. This was when the car was more than 10 years old and I had it in for some minor service that cost only about $100. These guys are ace mechanics that will give you straight advice. Can't recommend them highly enough.

Privately owned, super nice people, very fair prices. They are very honest, always remember my name, and always try to make the most cost efficient repairs. I would recommend them in a heart beat.

I moved from Texas to Albany and need to winterize my car. Foley gave my car a check up and helped me to fill in the windshield washer fluid free of charge. The owner is very nice and took time to explain all the tests that he has done. I strongly recommend this garage! I got to know this garage through this web-site, but have hard time to locate it because there is no phone number and I cannot get the address through google map. Here is the address: 5859 Depot Road, Altamont, NY 12009. Phone number is (518) 861 8321. If you look up Google map, this garage is listed as S Foley Garage not Foley's garage [:)]

I have had my cars worked on by Foleys for over 30 years. Never had a complaint. Honest and reliable.

John and Sean are great. They are always reasonable, completely honest, and affordable. They go out of their way for customers and fix small things sometimes even as part of the package. They have been fixing all of our family cars for years. And, you couldn't meet nicer folks.
