I went there after my car broke down on father's day. Dad is a mechanic and I didn't wanna have him work on my car that day...but I needed it asap for work.

The man working there lied in order to get my signature, hugely inflated the price, (695 to change alternator and starter. another mechanic quoted 370 over the phone. This guy tried to charge 120 for diagnosis and 325 for the actual alternator. Give me a break! They cost 80 bucks brand new.) He was rude, told me and my father that we were liers and he didn't expect my dad to know anything. After spending an hour talking sense into him and agreeing to a "fair" price (i.e., would cost more to retow), the next day, he changed when I came back to pay. The guy quoted a different price and I had to spend MORE time arguing. The day after my car left the shop, it broke down. My dad gave it a look over and the "new" alternator is broken, there was trash left in my motor, my cable connections were sprayed with a solution which deteriorates the metal, and some of the bolts were not rescrewed...I'm sure there's more mess to clean up after this guy that we've yet to find.

It's been a nightmare for my father and I trying to deal with this person and it was the worst thing I could have done for my dad on father's day, and probably the worst place I could have had the misfortune to take my car.

The man has a very pleasant face, don't let that make you feel bad.
DO NOT go here! The 24hr drop of is NNNOOOOT worth it!!!!!

Good luck!

Pros: nice smile. 24hr drop off, AAA certified

Cons: the service (double talker and huge price infations), expertise(car broke down day after), timeliness (it took 2.5days) and repair (it broke next day) were horrible
