Pete is a russian guy who does not speak good english, but his shop on cottman just west of the country club diner and east of the chevy dealer is open from 7.30 am to midnight. He and his minyons look like they are ex KGB, but they are good guys, very honest. This is not where you bring a Saab for electronic trouble, but clutches on a Sabb, or an Escort, water pumps brakes etc...they are very good. They do not mark up parts much and they charge $35.00 an hour according to some flat rate book. You can not expect "american" style customer service here, but they have continued working on my car to almost 2 am on one occasion. To me a good trade. A bottle of vodka after a good repair is about the best 10 buck investment you can make in continued low cost high quality auto repair. They do the new emissions test too. Sorry this sounds like an ad, I just think that they do great work, and scare too many people off with their poor first impression.

Do you speak russian? If not be patient, for this is a good mechanic who will do what you need done, if they know what you want. Imagine a korean store turned into a gas station! Pete and his son keep the place open from 6 am to midnight or later, with several men wrenching away, grunting in various eastern european tounges. They do emissions and PA inspection, and will at your request do 'just enough' to get through the inspection.
