My beloved Oldsmobile stopped starting about a week ago, just one week after I spent nearly $400 replacing its tensioner. I had a bad experience at the shop that replaced said part, so I checked Insider Pages to give me some ideas about decent mechanics in my part of the East Bay.

Based on a single solid review, I called the garage and spoke with Henry himself. He was friendly, courteous, and he was quite patient with my long-winded explanation about what was going on with my car. Plus, he had the lowest labor rates (by as much as $30 in one case)of the four shops I contacted.

I had the car towed in, and he called me later that very afternoon with his diagnosis. Repairs took only a couple of hours, and his price was quite reasonable (my friend pointed out that he might keep them that way in order to cater to Berkeley's student population). The car is currently running smoother that it has in a long time (new alernator and battery).

One caveat: Henry Chin's is a smallish, independently owned shop, and he doesn't have a lot of storage space for cars that are waiting to be repaired. I definitely suggest calling him before you take in your automobile.

It was December and not only was Christmas coming but I was about to move. Something went wrong with my car. I was really in a fix , because I only work part time (money is an issue),trusting auto repair people are not my favorite. I work in his neighborhood so I was diricted to him by a local merchant. Mr Chin was at his counter and smile when I walk in. That was not a good sign, I thought. I told him my car would not start if it sat for longer than 8 hours. He said that it might be the alternator (something that other people told me), but he would check it out and call me. Well he did call and said guess what it was just a wire that had come loose.
Now I would never had known the differnets. When I pick the car up not only did he not charge me much, but he had check all my vitals and added oil and other fluids no extra charges.
My car is a 1994 Mustang and as long as he is around and I own a car he is my man.
TRY HIM.
