Even though he is a one man operation; one time my wife took one of our cars in for an emergency repair and had no way home, Steve took her home himself. Additionally, he always goes out of his way to secure the right part from wherever he has to go to find it. He is ethical almost to a fault and constantly searches for ways to keep the repair bill low. He is one in a million snd I would drive a great distance to keep my cars serviced by him.

Steve is the best mechanic I have ever met, specializing in most imported cars. He explains everything without being asked or having to probe for information. He treats women with respect and like they have a brain in their head. He treats men the same way. Steve always offers options, even if it means the customer may chose not to have any work done. He is always looking out for his customers' best interests with regards to safety, cost, convenience, and peace of mind. I have taken two of my cars to him: a 1983 Mazda RX-7, which had extensive work done on it, and my 1997 Honda Civic EX. He is the best! Paula R.

My first encounter with Steve was via phone as I was living 250 miles away from his shop. I called to ask technical questions about my Fiat. As a woman I was anticipating the far too common attitude of "get a man to do the work for you" or "silly woman you're too ignorant to understand cars." Steve is quite the exception. He gave me the info I needed and told me that I could call again if I had any other questions. Of course I've kept in touch and brought my Fiats to him for a personalized education in their particular personalities. I have a good deal of "backyard" experience with engine rebuilding/repair, brakes, etc., what ever it takes to keep it going (and stopping). Steve didn't know what I did or didn't know when I first called him and not once, not ever, has he been condescending or dishonest. Steve is truely one of those mechanical geniuses. He is a virtual Fiat/Lancia encyclopedia. On top of his amazing expertise he is honest. That's HONEST. Yes Virginia there really are honest mechanics out there. At least one anyway...Steve Ambrose. If I had to rank one quality over the other, I would have to choose honesty just slightly over brilliance. Smart guys still might rip you off. Steve is neck and neck with honesty and brilliance. You can trust his knowledge, experience, honesty, and integrity.

Very nice fellow, super informative, warned me away from making unnecessary repairs and charged reasonably for his time and work (though no quote was given). Also was very accomodating and understanding when I dropped my car off at another repair shop (my mistake) and it inconvenienced him.

Steve Ambrose has worked on our Hondas and Toyotas for the last 5 years, and has kept these 10+ year old cars running reliably. Our experiences with him and his work have never been anything other than positive. He is absolutely honest, smart, competent--and an interesting character besides! He trusts his customers as much as we trust him. We recommend him to everybody we know.

Very honest and diligent. Kinda hard to get hold of him since his shop is a one-man operation. Looks like he's not able to economically sustain his operation, so he's taken on a part time job now. Too bad for his customers.
