Let's do something constructive on topix for once and help each other out by talking about our good and bad mechanic experiences with local mechanics.

Who do you recommend we go to and stay away from?

I use Mike at PRO AUTO. He does a good job at a fair price. The only problem is sometimes he is very busy and you have to wait a day or two.

I second that - J&L Rocks! Been going to them for 20 years and those guys are 100% trustworthy. Quality work at reasonable rates. Just don't expect much from the waiting area, this is an old-school shop.

I refer a dozen people each year to J & L Auto for their ablility fix all cars, their rates, and their overall friendliness. Bring him a coffee and he will diagnose your car for free, maybe. Now I will not be able to get my car repaired by him with all of this business coming his way. He deserves it. A good American small business story.
