Trick has been in business since before I started taking my cars to them, about 30 years ago, when my company moved their office to their neighborhood. They have moved twice, in the same neighborhood, to bigger and better shops each time. They've done work on all my cars - Buick, Chrysler, Ford, Mercury, Pontiac, etc. - and even my boats. They also do most of the work on almost all of the company's, and it's employees, cars and trucks. Owners John Waters and Karl Orlick have one full-time employee, Rick. These three do all the work themselves. If it's something they can't handle, they'll be the first to tell you to take it somewhere else, and recommend top quality places to take it. For example, they don't do body work, so they recommend Schmid's Body Shop on Hiawatha Blvd. They've saved me bundles of trouble and money over the years. And, besides that, they're nice people.

I have been going to these guys for 15 years now. They were recommended to me by a friend who thought they were great and I have been in agreement since I first went. And people I have sent there also think they are great. That's a pretty good law of averages for car repair. They know their stuff. They are honest. They won't rip you off. AND they're friendly and won't make you feel like an idiot.

I am an engineer that drives old cars and used to all of my own work. I have been through several mechanics trying to find one that know more then I do about cars. These guys are great. Even though it is out of the way I trust them and they are very comptent.

John,Karl and Rick have been services my family's cars for over 25 years. They were recommended to me by another highly recommended garage in the area for an internal engine problem and I've been there ever since. These guys work hard to fix it right the first time and when they can't,they will tell you who can. They do a lot of work on antique and classic cars, so you know if the owners of those cars trust them then I think my Saturn's in good hands !! To update your file : Their phone # is 315.454.4621 and fax is 315.455.7528

These guys are great. They are very knowledgeable and work hard fix the car right first time. They are also honest and only fix what is wrong. Also, if there is an alternative available that will save you money, they will recommend and discuss it with you.

Trick Auto with Karl and John (and the rest of the crew) are TOP-NOTCH mechanics - getting a lot of practice in fine- tuning your engine from hi-output race cars. I have NEVER been disappointed with the work performed on any of my vehicles. Honestly, if they feel they cannot perform a particular job, they gladly recommend another shop to handle it. I began bringing my cars here BEFORE the warranties were kaput because of the quality of the work and the fair prices of doing it. Keep it up guys - you are a STRONG asset to the auto world. Retired Rick doesn't know what he's missing while in Florida.
