Great work at reasonable price......can not ask for more, especially in a metro area. We've taken two different vehicles to them with the usual ailments, repairs were good as gold.

We have been taking our cars to Sam for over 15 years, in fact, we specifically buy Japanese cars so that Sam can work on them. He kept my Honda Accord alive far past its expiration date and offered me free counseling on what type of minivan to replace our car with when the time came. We have always been informed ahead of time of what repairs were necessary and what could safely wait. At one point when we needed a serious repair that we could not safely put off and we could not afford to pay for all at once Sam helped us work out paying for it over several weeks interest free. I highly recommend this shop. They are honest and affordable and take the time to acknowledge you on a personal level.

I have taken both my Honda Accord and Toyota Camry to Sam's several times...I have always got my car back the same day. The are honest and do not recommend repairs that are not necessary, they always try to find you the best price for quality parts. I go out of my way to get my repairs done here.....Tim is especially helpful!

I'd had a few problems with mechanics in the DC area... thank goodness I looked on Car Talk. I took a chance with this place and was beyond pleased. These guys were completely responsive to all of my questions, took the time to show me exactly what was wrong, provided a reasonable estimate (the final bill was actually LOWER!) and even offered to order me breakfast! Eventhough its not in the nicest area of town, I'll definitely go back and have recommended them to several friends.

Simply put, this place is great. They specialize in Japanese cars, but have always been willing to look at my Chevy. They are honest, nice guys who take the time to explain the problem. They are very busy but they give me the feeling that I'm their only customer. It's also conveniently located near the Huntington Metro Station so I can drop off the car on the way to work. As long as I live in the area they will have my business.

Incredibly willing to explain the situation/alternatives. Frank even drew me a diagram of what was happening with my engine and made sure I understood.
