When my van started running rough suddenly 500 miles from home, I
only had enough tools and knowhow to figure out that something was
bad wrong with the engine. I took it to Waldens based on the reviews
here, and I wasn't disapointed. They offered to give me a ride home, and
diagnosed and repaired a broken valve spring by the next day, and went
ahead and fixed my PS filter "while they were in there" at no extra charge.
The whole job cost less than the rip-off artists at Sears charge for a brake
job that takes less than half the skill and time. You can't go wrong with the
guys at Walden's. Their sign says they have been in business since the early
'90's, and they are plenty busy. That just doesn't happen in a town like
Bloomington unles you're consistently good at what you do.

I took my Saturn there after two separate diagnostics from "other places" in Bloomington did not match. They were extremely helpful. They even drove me back to class while they were checking my car.

They are not afraid to say that they aren't sure what it is, unlike the other places that were willing to guess that my car needed almost $3,000 of work done that may or may not fix the problem.

I will definitely go back to Walden Automotive.

I'm the kind of guy that won't pay anyone to do anything. i figure if they can do it, so can i. Well i was working on my truck and got in over my head, needed tools i didn't have and really didn't want to do the job. it was noon on a friday and i called Walden. They said they were not that busy and could do the job that afternoon. i left right then and there and dropped the truck off. they called me a couple hours later and said it was ready to pickup. i paid over the phone and told them to lock the keys int he truck and i would pick it up later that evening. couldn't have been happier. they are super nice and very affordable. they won't charge you for things you don't need. i will be taking every job i don't want to do to them. i don't mind a small dirty shop, that's what a shop should be. You can have your nice waiting rooms at the dealerships, i prefer mechanics that know what they are doing. a mechanic with clean hands is no mechanic.

Pros: They know what theya re doing

Cons: small shop

Walden's was recommended to me by several workplace friends. I've only been here once, I brought in my 4 year old car because the brakes were squealing intermittently, sounding like I needed new pads. They took a look, told me I had half the pads left, and offered some suggestions for fixing the squeak. I opted for none of them, and they thanked me for my business and let me leave with no charge. I've got some work to get done with another vehicle and will definitely be taking it there to get it done.
Only negative is that since it is a small private shop, it's not as clean and inviting as you would find at a large dealer.
