Took my 2007 Nissan Altima for an inspection in the AM and was told it would be ready at lunch time. Richie called saying the front brakes had to be changed, which I 1/2 way expected at 45,000 miles. I was quoted in the low $200s, which I thought was fine and told him to go ahead and change them. Richie called back 30 mins later saying he took the wheels off and after closer inspection the brakes were still fine. He apologized for the inconvenience and said I could pick up the car with the new inspection sticker. My experience was a positive one and Richie proved to be a stand up and fair mechanic. He did a good job, by not having to do the job. :)

I've only been to Richies one time, and I have to agree with the last reviewer, the place does seem to overprice. Their service was also on the slow side, what should have been a few hours, ended up taking a whole day. I had to take a day off from work because they took too long in their repairs. Things were working fine afterwards, but time is money, as they say... and they wasted my time.

This is not one of my top recomendations. When you are stuck with out a car you are usually at the mercy of the auto mechanic. This station has repaired my vehicle several times and I feel he is a little over priced. I think he tries to fix things that don't necessarily need fixing and for routine repairs I think he is a little pricy. I always feel as a female I am getting ripped off and maybe thats the case. I will say he does the work in a timely matter so you have little down time, but whne the bill comes, look out!! Its true that it is so hard to find a good, honest mechanic these days.
