I cannot say enough good things about Eric and Daryl. My wife and I have brought our cars (a 1999 Corolla and a 2000 Concorde) to them for years for maintenance as well as repairs. We keep returning because they consistently do great work for a great price. I first learned that I could trust them years ago when I brought my car in for maintenance that I thought I needed and for which I expected to pay at least $300. After taking a look at my car, they said it was well-maintained and that it only needed an oil change. In the end, I only paid a tenth of the cost that I had expected to pay - they easily could have taken me for so much more! And they have spent several hours researching and diagnosing various problems my car has without charging me more than the basic 1-hour diagnosis fee on more than one occasion, and occasionally have not charged me a diagnosis fee at all.

Yesterday, we dropped off my wife's car because we could smell oil burning. By the end of the day, they had figured out the problem, ordered the needed part, and confirmed the issue was fixed. The total cost for diagnosis, cleaning up the oil, and installing and testing the part? $9.72! Apparently they replaced the part in question (valve cover gaskets) back on October 21, 2013 (about 13.5 months ago) and they volunteered on their own to honor the expired 12-month warranty.

If you want an extremely honest, knowledgeable, and reputable mechanic that will charge highly reasonable rates, this is the place to go. I also agree with what others have said on other review sites - these guys are also courteous, able to explain what is going on, and very easy to talk to.

Superior Brake and Alignment does do good work, I admit that. But their prices seem very high to me and their attitude is somewhat odd - they seem like they are doing you a favor by fixing your car. I have had that feeling when I've gone in there. At first I thought I was imagining it, but it struck me again the next time I went in some months later. A friend of mine went there and she said the same thing. Their lot is on the small side too, so manuevering your car in and out of there is a challenge.

Not sure if I'll go back unless they change their attitude. Located on Fairview Avenue near the airport.

PROS: they do good work.
CONS: bad attitude.
