Owner: Rick Johnson, ASE master certified techncian. Open Monday through Friday. Has slot in shop door for keys for early drop-off. I've been taking cars to him for three years. Shop replaced front end bushing set and later both tie rods on my '96 Chrysler Concorde for hundreds less than local Chrysler dealer's estimates. For a reasonable price was willing to complete radiator and heater hose replacements I had started but could not finish. For a reasonable price mounted and balanced set of tires I purchased on line. Sends cars to a local reputable shop for wheel alignments without adding extra for time to deliver and pick up to them.

Shadetree mechanics listen up! You know that project that sounds easy when you read about it, but turns into a nightmare when you've got it torn apart? Just throw everything into the trunk and have it towed to Rick and Terry. These guys don't mind picking up the pieces and getting the job done. They will take you out under the lift and show you what they found and tell you exactly what its going to cost. Timing chain, gasket set, half shaft and radiator fill plus other parts=$700 That's easily $1500 or more at the stealership. I like my time under the shadetree but, I'd rather spend my time now with the kids. Thanks Rick! I'll be back soon.

I have always had excellent service from Rick and Terry. Very good prices and honest about the repair needed. Only charged half price for the diagnostic work when they did it in half the time suggested
