Kieth can be bruske but he is a very good diagnostician and he understands about people who have a passion for their cars. He fixes DeLeoreans and Ferraris as well as rebuilding my 1970 Mercedes 220D (all moving parts) for $2,700.00. When he answers the phone he is likely to be curt and when something really doesn't matter, like getting my extra spare tire back on its custom rim he can put it off indefinately. If you can't stand a little quirkyness in your mechanic stay away. If you can and don't mind him going about things his way he's really great. He can often find you a very special car or difficult to locate part as well. (But, before you ask him to do so you'd better get to know him a little. He might just send you packing. He's understanding about passionate car buffs but he doesn't consider himself a "parts guy".

These guys were great. I was spoiled by Murphy Bros in Quincy, MA, so finding some one of their caliber was a God Send. Bill Bannan

I schlepped my 97 audi wagon to several independents and a dealership - no one could diagnose it but Keith. I haven't looked back. I've also brought in a suburu legacy. worth the trip to S.Buffalo.

Ive been taking my cars to Athol Motors for years. I feel that Keith is honest and DOESN'T try to scam me or just take blind guesses as to what the cause of a problem might be. Sometimes it might take them 2 days to look at your car, but its definitely worth the wait because they get the job done right the first time (I think that the wait is because so many people trust them to work on their cars).
