I took my Honda in to them on a recommendation from some friends. I had a rattling/scraping noise that I heard when driving and also a problem with my car bucking when accelerating from a stop. They fixed an exhaust problem for me for a very reasonable price without trying to sell me any parts or services that I didn't need (or ask for). They diagnosed a likely problem with the transmission and were very honest about the fact that they don't do transmission work and that given the problem was unexpected based on the age and mileage of my car, I should really contact the Honda dealership where I bought the car for resolution of the problem. They also recommended a local repair shop if I wanted to get a second opinion on the transmission. I'm a young female and know very little about cars but I felt like these guys were friendly, honest, and took the time to explain the repairs/probloems to me. They're also very convenient to UVA (within walking distance). Too bad I moved out of the area or I'd go to them for all my repairs.

Not fancy, but competent and fair. Friendly folks, too.

I've been taking my cars to Settle for 25+ years and they have always treated me(a female) fairly, respectfully, and honestly. They don't take appointments so occasionally the wait is long but you can take your car in early in the morning and be assured that it will be ready by late afternoon. They call and let you know if they don't have a part or if it is going to take longer(rare occurance). They are close to the downtown mall, uva, etc and have a mini-van that is willing to take you and pick you up from just about anywhere-home included. There have been occasions that I thought the price was a bit high but, hey, it's well worth the extra pennies!
