Twice for repairs. (1)Timing Belt with valve adjustment. Very reasonable, compared to dealer. Prompt competent service. Been two years - no conplaints. (2) replace fuel pump (inside tank) dealer only part (bummer)- no after market options. Was blowing fusible link for ignition. Pump wires frayed and burned - a potential fire/explosion hazard? A design defect? Must keep tank full(er) to cool pump - huh!?! Repair reasonable price, compared to dealer, Timely and efficient. One year - no complaints.

In replacing a headlight, they forgot to tighten the screws and the result was a headlight that aimed downwards, just over the bumper. They neglected to replace the air filter in a routine maintenance juob. But, they were very quick to remedy and apologize. They have a very professional-type operation. We'll go back.

Rickard's is an honest shop that saved my mother from an unneeded $2600 engine replacement. My mother first took her car to Mickey's Auto Repair complaining of a sound coming from the engine. Three "mechanics" looked at her car and told her that the engine was shot and they could install a used engine for $2600. After seeking my advice, I located Rickards Automotive on the CarTalk website and sent my mother there for a second opinion. Rickards quickly discovered that several bolts were missing from the alternator and that this was causing the noise from the engine. (My mother had the alternator replaced at Sears, I'll be writing about them later). Thanks to Rickards for quickly and accurately diagnosing the problem. They have earned a customer for life.
