This guy tried to sell me three 90-dollar tires for 500 dollars. When I came, he immediately started being real talky trying to convince me of his experience and how I should trust my car with him. I needed 3 tires because I just got one of them replaced, which I told him, but he said I aught to have them all replaced so that they're even (???). Well anyway, we agreed on just 3. We went inside, he called up one of his guys on the phone and asked what the price for the tire is, and the phone was so loud that I could hear the guy on the other end say "$88." Joe hung up the phone and told me it would be $110. He then said I should do an alignment, which is included for free most places, and the total would be $500. Don't go to this guy, he will try to scam you.

My husband and I have taken our two cars to Joe Whitt for three years now (a Honda and a Chevy). He's reliable and trustworthy and goes the extra mile to serve, including coming to pick you up if you're stranded somewhere! He's also less-expensive than some other mechanics. We've been very happy with his service and recommend him highly to anyone in need of a mechanic.

Another plus: he doesn't talk to female customers any differently than male, which I find refreshing after years of being called "sweetie" and talked down to by male mechanics.

The owner joe whitt may know cars and how to tell lies very well. The guy is a good mechanic, but an ever better racist.I had a friend that worked for him, and said the man was very unfair, talked down to him, and talked badly about mexicans making all this american money. So the man knows cars, but unless you are white, he just wants your money!

I was recently involved in an eleven-month nightmare with a grossly incompetent and dishonest mechanic named Ed Gaydosik of HIGH TECH TIRE & AUTO of Durham. (For those who may be interested, my long review of HIGH TECH can be viewed here on the Insider Pages.)

After almost a year and $2,000 in unnecessary bogus repairs, botched work, lost use of my vehicle, emotional stress & great inconvenience, I hired Joe Whitt as my advocate to bring my long nightmare with HIGH TECH AUTO to an end.

Joe graciously spent several hours with me - without charge - going over my receipts, educating me and discussing my case. Within 5 minutes Joe and his crew had diagnosed the problem with my vehicle, a problem that HIGH TECH could not find in 10 months. Within another hour the problem was repaired and I was on the road.

I want to thank Joe and his crew for their professionalism and kindness and for taking such a genuine interest in my well-being. Joe has created a relaxed atmosphere for customers where car repairs are made understandable and non-threatening through friendly conversation and demonstration. With Joe's assistance I was able to show that I had been ill-served by High Tech and was able to get a large refund on unnecessary charges.

I HIGHLY recommend Whitt's Auto Care and only wish I had known about Joe many years ago! Thank You again, Joe, and we'll be seeing you again. You are The Man!

Sincerely, MARY KENNEY
