I just wanted to second the comments already posted. Ray is one of the most honest guys I know, and if he doesn't know how to fix something, he'll find out or refer you to someone who will. I work near his shop, and he's often bicycled (yes, a mechanic who bicycles) over to pick up my car or do a spot diagnostic. He DOES like to talk, so be sure you have time, but you'll get a thorough explanation of all the work involved and all the possible fixes.

Taking your car to Ray is like taking it to your neighbor. He is very helpful and always is looking for the most cost effective fix. I trust him completely. He has worked on my cars for many years and he is recommended around my office as a great mechanic. He lives soley off of word-of- mouth. His shop is very small and doesn't look like much. However, he has access to all the resources needed to do the repair right. As an example, he researched the number of clicks my Lexus' emergency brake should have. Another time, he went to a junkyard and got a part for my old RV, installed it, and only charged $20 for the part and the repair. One time, my erratic engine revving was due to low coolant. He charged $15.00 for the diagnosis. He charges a fair price, and if he can fix the problem simply, he will.
