They would be better called car doctors than mechanics. Occasionally a problem is not solved the first time, but there has always been a good reason for this. The one problem that took a long time and several visits could only be solved by the Nissan dealer, which had specific diagnostic equipment that general mechaniscs do not have. No one is close to public transporation in this town. However PolBar does go out of their way to get their customers to work if within a reasonable distance. Whenever they remove a part to replace it, they show the customer the part and what is worn or broken on it. They truely like to teach and want informed customers.

While I AM a "biased customer" and a friend, without ant "gush" or bombast, I'll just say this: At Pol-Bar, they fix your vehicle as if it was their own, and they ALWAYS take the time to explain what needed repairing; no matter how dense the car's owner is, Bill Polk, (the "Pol" in Pol-Bar)can explain the problem simply, in an uncomplicated manner, yet thoroughly. It comes as no surprise that they have all the work that they can handle; If you're in a bind, however, they'll never let you "sit".

We love the way they take the time out & help explain everything in fine detail. They can answer any questions before they even start working on your car. We wouldn't have anyone else touch our car, they treat it as there own.

I have been a customer of Pol-Bar since 1980, and they have always been honest and upfront. In 2000, I moved to Florida, and since my son still lives in the Lehighton area, I still bring my vehicle to Pol-Bar for scheduled maintenance. In fact, if I know a particular item needs attention and it is not a safety item and I know I will be in their area, I will send Mr Polk a note asking for an appointment. On several occasions, my '95 4X4 broke down and they fitted me into their schedule on short notice. So, you could say I travel to Lehighton from North East Florida for Pol-Bar service!
