Joe was the reason Japanese Motors WAS a good shop. His new location is convenient in East Athens, right near walmart. Joe is a reliable, excellent mechanic who will not fix something that is not broke or overcharge.

Let me start by saying that I visited Joe's Garage on two separate occasions. My first visit was pleasant. My car was repaired in one day and the owner seemed nice. On my second visit, however, my car remained at the shop for four days and was not repaired. Being the Christian that I am, I will give Joe the benefit of the doubt and assume that his business was backed up which prevented him from getting to my car in a timely manner the second time. Unfortunately, this put me in an uncomfortable position of being without my car for almost an entire week. I would rate Joe's Garage with two and a half stars. My first visit was satisfactory. The second visit was not.

I first took my car to Joe on recommendation of a friend. I was behind on maintenance of my car, and knew I was going to be in for more repairs than I could afford. At other places I have had issues with hard sales tactics, but Joe sat down and went over what needed to be done, what I needed to have done _now_, and set up a plan to get the rest taken care of.

My father was a mechanic, and I grew up around mechanics. I have seen them all, good bad and ugly. Joe is one of those who takes pride in doing a good job at a fair price. Unlike other experiences I have had, I have no worries that I will get the runaround about extra 'needed' repairs and get stuck with a bill larger than I agreed upon.

Dropped off car for diagnosis on Monday, Joe said it would be later that day or the next day when he would let me know why it wouldn't start. Did not hear from him until Wednesday when he said he has done preliminary work but had not even gotten the car in the garage. By the end of Wednesday he had not even done anything but still charged me for an hours worth of work. Poor business, Poor service,

Business Response:

Owner No body likes being stranded and having to tow their car to a garage for repair. When this happens I will work as fast as I can to get someone back on the road. I do not think it is fair to shove previous obligations to the back of the line. I need to know about time constraints up front so I can help you work out a solution. Yes, If I spend time working on your car I will charge you for it.
