Shop is owned and run by three sisters, daughters of Bernie who started the garage many years ago. They are knowledgeable, fair, and NEVER talked patronizingly to women. Excellent service, mechanics are thorough and fair. They also tell you when you DON'T need something done. The body work they did on my car ('97 Miata) after an accident was complimented by another mechanic from another shop.

Bernie's is the best. Their prices are far better than other places in the area and they only do what is absolutely necessary to repair your car. They understand that people don't have unlimited funds to put into their vehicles. I love the fact that it is run by women.

I found Bernie's Garage through the Car Talk website around 1998. They have been working on my cars since, and I have been nothing but very happy with them. I have told all my friends about them, and they are all happy, too. Prices are reasonable, and they very contentious about diagnosing the problem and giving you options (when options are available.) I never feel like I am being ripped off, and I never feel like they are pushing repairs that are not necessary. For my vehicles, they have done everything from brake work to replacing a head gasket. I have a 1990 pick- up (with over 175,000) and 2002 Mazda, both are great in shape. I am sure most people can relate to the regular occurrence at the tire shop after having your tires rotated, when inevitably they come back to you with items that they want to "fix". Before, I always felt helpless. Do I believe them, or not? Now, I always say with confidence, Thank you for letting me know, I will have my mechanic look at it. It's a great feeling.

They're a small shop that gives personal attention; you talk with the mechanic if you want to. They always seem strictly honest and offer good advice. I've been using them for about 30 years and recommend them to others.
