I've always had good luck at Don's and at Garvin & Lidster at 7th and Vorhees. I like supporting the little, local shops, especially when they do a good job.

Lyman Roberts?! Might as well be Lyman Robbers!

What are you asking here? Bodywork, engine work??
I would like to know some opinions for myself.

Bodywork...besides me, I would say Blackburns Body Shop, I really don't want to say bad things about the filthy, bad work shops, so I will just say the good.
Mechanical...Vrabics, Switzers, or Dons

My two favorites are: Garvin and Lidster on 7th and Voorhees, and Don's on North 3rd. Good, honest, local people.

I think Finzel's does great work. He is always honest and the work is done on time. I have gone there for years and so have many of my friends and have NEVER been disappointed. I really don't have anything bad to say about the shop or him. Nice guy.
I hate Terre Haute

Sir Thomas tightened up a battery cable on my elderly great aunt's car and fixed a problem she thought was a bad alternator for free. They could have easily ripped her off and never had been caught. Then they called her later just to make sure everything was still alright. William's in West T is very good as well.

I took my 2002 Ford Explorer there and they said it needed a head gasket but they didn't have the tools to fix it so recommended I take it to a Ford dealer. I took it to Clinton Ford and after 2 weeks they looked at it and it was simply a thermostat. It took them two weeks because they were short handed, one of their mechanics was pout with cancer so I don;t hold that against the dealer. When I called and told Don he said no way bring it over and they tested it and he said well they are right. After fretting for 2 or 3 weeks that I had a $1000 plus auto repair Don didn't even offer to refund the money for the misdiagnosis. He refunded after I asked. I had faith ion Dons until this incident.

Lyman Roberts mechanic is good, and reasonable they get all my work. Finzel is a lying snit. Adams is good. The best price is no object are Dons Service Center, Dorsett Mitsubishi.

I use Wilguess on Hulman. Love their work and prices. But I have to admit, they have a horrible parking lot and it can be a pain getting in and out of there.
