Nope. Longstanding customer now says go elsewhere.

Rick is great. His shop, because of his employees, is not. Rude, little attention to detail which result in return visits to correct mistakes (and hence my time and additional money).

If you have a high dollar German import, Rick is your man. Have a Japanese or Domestic car...Careful, James might work on your vehicle. Save yourself the aggravation and expense. There are better garages in town.

He may or may not be the cheapest, and scheduling can be an issue... becaue he's popular and they're busy, but he's always honest, won't do work that isn't necessary, and fixes it right the first time.

I've taken a problem to him that

I've been a customer of Rick's since the late '80s. Rick and his employees have worked on all of my vehicles from race cars to our Durango and I've always been completely satisfied. I've brought some extremely difficult problems to Rick's and they have resolved each and every time.

I've recommended Rick's to many people and those that used him reported back that they were very satisfied.

Pros: professional, reasonable cost, mountain of information

Cons: They are busy

Ricks Auto is the place to go if you have a Euro car, I do not own any American cars but ive heard they do good work on them as well. ive taken ALL my Mercedes-Benz there. I needed a new crank shaft possition sensor, they told me what I needed and sent me on my way :) no sales pitch and just a few dollars cheaper then the dealership. There prices are abit high BUT you get quality honest work. HIghly recomend this place to anyone with a German or britsh car. Heck any euro or import!

I took my car to Rick's Automotive based on the overwhelmingly positive and glowing reviews here (granted there were only three, but still ...).

My experience, unfortunately, was horrible. I found the garage to be unprofessional, unreliable, and shockingly expensive. Expensive I could have overlooked if the service had been great, but it was terrible.

I strongly recommend against using this place, especially if you are new to the area.

I've taken my Ford Escort with 150,000+ miles to Rick's a half dozen times now with some tricky problems. He's easy to work with, keeps an eye out for other problems, but doesn't try to hard sell anything that isn't absoletely needed. I'v been happy with his prices. Don't let all the Mercedes Benzes, Porches, and Audi's in the lot fool you, he's happy to work with the Escort owners as well! My wife has also taken her Saturn to him with great results.

It is not the most expensive one comparing with the other local car repairing stores. Not long ago, when the car seemed having a leak we called in for an appointment, they were in a busy season and kept us wait for about a week to start. But they were really fast and found out where the leak was immediately. Then fixed it within a day. We were afraid if the leaking liquid could have any bad impact on the other parts of the car, and were checking it up everytime we drove the car. It turns out they did fix it and nothing else was going wrong as they said.

Rick's prices are a bit over "average" for this community, but you get what you pay for. You'll also get an honest assessment of the work your car really needs, with no sales pitches for extra maintenance services. Rick and his mechanics do a lot of specialty work on foreign cars, but are just as good with all domestic models.
