Bill has worked on all my vehicles, '73 OPEL GT, '67 Ford PU, '74 Ford S/W and '78 Winnebago. In all the many years that he has been my one and only mechanic, his work has always been impeccable, and his prices have been beyond reasonable. I have at times forced extra money on him because I thought he was giving away too much of his time and expertise. In all these years, and through the travails of all these vehicles, as I tell other people to whom I recommend Bill, the true measure of a great mechanic is whether or no the work is done right the first time, and I am proud and happy to be able to say that when Bill says the car is done and ready, it is done and ready, and has never required a return trip. I recommended him to my Father and Mother, and they both swore by him. Now that my Father is gone, my Mother still uses him exclusively. I also told my sister about him, and she travels from Renton to have him work on her cars. In closing, there is nothing more that can be said to add to the fact that he does it right, the first time, for a fair price.

This shop treated me great. The shop is a very competent mechanic and partner that run an old fashion shop out of their large rear garage. When I first rolled up I was a little nervous since it is in a residential neighborhood, but they were very friendly and straight forward. I found their name via CarTalk's website and was pleased with the results. They solved the issue in an safe and economical manner. I really appreciated how they let me watch and ask questions about the process and the reason for different steps. I would highly recommend this mechanic to others.

Had a radiator blow on I-5, and found Bill's shop on this website. Bill ordered a radiator so it'd be available when I got there, provided clear directions to his shop and advice on how to drive my truck there w/o overheating it. Bill and Dan were friendly, professional, and courteous. They gave me an accurate estimate of the work before beginning. I was able to get back on the road in a few hours and make it to my appointment.

I have taken four different cars to Bill. He is a real mechanic who will fix your car not just change parts. He took on a head gasket change on my Ford Ranger that other shops would not touch. He got the truck up and running in a few days. Much better than a dealer.
