Where is the best place in town to take your vehicle to get inspected? There is a couple minor things that need done to it but I need to get it inspected and tags on it ASAP.

Salem Muffler. Gary Johns is a very honest person. He will not tell you something is wrong with your car if there isn't. He will not overcharge you for repairs if your car needs it. I have been a happy customer for 15 years. I will not take my car anywhere else but there. Not to say other mechanics in town are dishonest. Just saying you can count on Gary Johns to treat you right.

Don't believe I was talking to you. By the way, I was looking at the pictures on the current, couldn't figure out if was you or a water buffalo. Finally, I got thinking and there are no water buffalo down there. Decided it had to be Sharon.
I don't know Jamie that well, but I do know he can't be as Ignorant as you. Congrats you win that prize.

He has saved me hundreds of dollars over the years by his honesty. He will diagnose your car's problem and tell you straight up whether he can fix it or not and if he can, he will not over charge you anything. Case in point, I went to another place for a safety inspection not long after moving to Salem. They told me I would need a certain part put on the car in order to pass the inspection. They said it would run $150. I decided to try Salem Muffler for a second opinion on installing the part. Gary looked at it and said both part and labor would come to $50. Guess what? I became an instant customer and been a regular ever since.
so true

I haven't taken my car to any place in Salem yet. Knock on wood, haven't had to! But it's good to know that there are some good ones there! I'll have to keep these two in mind.

I would highly recomened not going to Knight Auto way tohigh on prices. I got quotes done for brakes Knight wanted something like $159, Dewaynes said $59.99 and Gary Johns told me $30 plus price of brakes -the real price not some cracked out overcharged price, so about $20-.. also
