I like to call him "my buddy Marv". He's kind of a crusty old guy, but with a good attitude. He knows his stuff, and so do his other wrenches. He'll discuss your problem over the phone, and suggest cheap fixes you can try yourself before you bring it in... and they usually work.

They are knowledgeable and honest. They're thorough and explain things. I'm very happy with their service.

After finding a small oil leak, I called Marv's and asked for a price and time frame for repair for a valve cover gasket and oil pan gasket. They called back within a half hour with a price, and the recommendation that I have the valve cover gasket repaired first (the much less expensive route) and only proceed with the oil pan gasket if necessary. They were able to book me an appointment within three days. The work was finished within four hours of dropping the car. They test drove the car after repair, and recommended against the need to replace the oil pan gasket. They found the throttle plates were dirty when doing the repair work, so cleaned them while the parts were accessible. The price was as quoted. The work was done well and quickly, and I was treated well and with integrity.

How often can you start with a mechanic and end with a friend. Marv is simply the best. What he and his family (yes it's a family business) don't know about motor vehicles just doesn't exist. His service, business acumen and personal touches are impeccable. When I first started going to him 23 years ago, he told me that people would sign blank checks and tell him to fill in the amount. I didn't believe him until he showed me the checks. I would never even consider doing that with anyone....except Marv. He is getting on in years and is handing the reins to his sons. He has a huge family, and they are all cut from the same cloth as Marv. He is a master mechanic and a superb human being. My family is so fortunate to have Marv's close to us. I tell them do what has to be done and fix what you feel is necessary. If they recommend anything I never question it. What a fabulous bunch of people.

They have done a great job for me on two minor issues for my Jeep Cherokee and Dodge Intrepid.
