I lived in many towns in America and abroad. Since I tend to drive older cars (around 10 years of age), finding a good mechanic, who charges a reasonable amount and does top work is crucial. In most cities that I lived in I have been severely disappointed, causing me to do the work on my own. In San Antonio, however, I have found Rick, through a recommendation of a local car parts store. Rick has successfully repaired a dual AC on my conversion van after I spent lots of money at a national chain where I had to bring it in 4 (!) times and still ended up with a fried compressor, because they never flushed the system properly. Rick's sidekick is a handicapped Vietnam Vet who once spent an entire day to meticulously rebuild a carburator for my V8 engine and then charged me only $120, including parts and installation. Since then (about 2 years ago), the van runs great! For $59, he replaced the entire exhaust system (muffler, endpipe and connecting pipe) and installed it on my 91 Honda CRX (which so far held up longer than the factory installed one), and for $110 he did the 60,000 mile timing chain exchange. His explanations of what is wrong with the car are always concise and understandable. He shows me the parts that went bad and explains why they went bad. He also recommends what repairs are worth doing on what cars and warns me <i>against</i> doing work on my old cars that may cost too much in his opinion. I can't respond to the question as to whether the shop responds well when they screwed something up, since it never happened. I would think that he would stand behind his work, like his sidekick, who is proud of his work. Hard to find people like this. I can whole-heartedly recommend his repair shop. You can find him on West Commerce close to downtown. Going south on I-10, take the downtown exit and turn right on West Commerce, go for about a mile, look out for yellow house on the right hand side, then turn right on Cibolo and his shop is right there, in a predominantly mexican neighborhood of good, hardworking people. I am not sure if there is public transportation in that area of town.
