I have no complaints about Cal's Marathon except one -- because he does do such a good job and is so honest, the shop is always backlogged with customers and sometimes it takes quite a while for them to get to your car & fix it. If they could look at & fix a car within 24 to 48 hours guaranteed, then it would be THE perfect mechanic's shop.

Cals Marathon is the best mechanic around. If you want a honest answer to your car problem, then this is the mechanic you want to go to. I would not trust my car with anybody else.

Cal is one of those rare people in business, and extremely rare mechanics in my 61 years of experience, who treats fixing cars as though it were his mission in life, something he still personally enjoys doing as a challenge,and service, not just a way to earn a buck.So even when his shop is piled with cars waiting, he always takes my own Toyota problems seriously and immediately, never leaving me feel I'm an interruption in his schedule. Over a five year period he kept my 1985 Camry, with 397,250 miles (!) on it, in constant well running condition, until it eventually developed so many maladies that he looked me in the eye and announced "Peter, it's over". He treats my wife's Solara as seriously, so we don't ever go anywhere else, even to the local Toyota dealer.
