Mac (I think his name is) was super duper old school cool. Told me straight up that I didn't need an Fuel System Cleaning for $100 like Jiffylube said I did and told me to buy some Techron Fuel system cleaner for $12 myself. I got a radiator flush, emission inspection, front differential and air filter all for $121! Very cool! I live nearby in Red Hook. I will go to them even if I move to Manhattan.

Pros: I saved like $300 compared to Jiffylube

Cons: Left car there for the day

I know the earlier critic had a bad experience, but I am a "regular" with these guys--and an older female-- and I am amazed by how fair they are. My "check engine" light was on and my heart was in my throat waiting for the bad news--when I picked up the car Nat (one of the owners) told me my gas cap was loose and only charged me a few bucks for the diagnostic. Same thing happened just yesterday. I had a really horrible squeal comng from under the hood. If they had told me it was a $300 job I would have been relieved. When I called them they said they had tightened the belt, which stopped the squeal--and charged me $25. $25!!!??? It costs me more than that to fill up. I think these guys are great and really trustworthy.

Pros: Fair and trustworthy mechanics

Cons: A little out of the way but worth it.

i signed up for citysearch just so i could write this review.

i went to J & E to get inspection and emissions test done on my car. when i was dropping off my car, i asked the man in charge (who turned out to be one of the owners) if he could please check the battery for me. i asked if he charged for that, and he hesitated, then muttered "$35." told him that it was too expensive, and told him never mind. he then backtracked, saying that he could do it for less. i ended up not going ahead with it, as it just didn't seem right.

while waiting for the guy to finish inspecting the car, i called other mechanics in the area, and asked them how much they charge to test a battery. they charge nothing. and when i told them what happened with the guy at J & E, they could not give a reason other than his trying to make some extra money off a woman. apparently, checking a battery is a very simple thing that takes about 5 seconds.

i also asked my neighbors, some of whom go to J & E for occasional car repairs. they, too, were surprised that he would charge me anything at all for checking my battery. and they, too, thought that it was because of the same reason as above.

it's unfortunate to see that some mechanics still (in this day and age) feel the need to treat female customers in such a way. and mind you, in this case, it was the owner of the place.

please DO NOT GO TO J & E. i hope this review deters others from having to experience what i went through, regardless of their gender.

Pros: NONE

Cons: RUDE, DISHONEST

I had some wiper blades that were horrible and I brought my car here to have them replaced. I also didn't know about my broken tail light so they did that for me too. They were great and fast! I'd stop by and let them do a quick inspection so that you can be on your way. Prices were reasonable.
