We have been taking our cars to Skip Copola at Subtle Bug since 1972. He has been able to figure out the reasons for malfunctions, order parts swiftly, and get our vehicles running smoothly time after time. His bills have been reasonable and often he has checked out problems without
charge. He has made good referrals and tuaght us things about preventive maintenance. We highly recommend Skip
as a caring and competent guy.

I have been getting my cars repaired here for over 20 years. I couldn't be happier with their work. Every job has been done professionally, timely and with quality parts. They are always upfront and honest before the job is done; letting you know how much it will cost with an estimate range. Skip has never done any unnecessary repairs in the years I've been dealing with them. If the car needs work not originally diagnosed, they always call, telling you what and how much BEFORE they fix it. There have been times when money has been tight and I couldn't pay for the work that needed to be done. They did as much work as I could afford to get the car down the road. Sometimes I am unhappy with the cost of some of the big jobs they have done, but auto repairs can be expensive. I have, unfortunately, had to use other shops when living out of state. I was always scared of getting ripped off. I have never felt like that with The Subtle Bug. When I first started going there, I took my cars to other shops for second opinions. They were more expensive every time. I always brought it back to Skip. The work is world class. But best of all, they care about the customer. I have read the other poor reviews for The Subtle Bug. All I can say is, I know lots of people in Athens that use and love this shop. Few satisfied customers would take the time to set up an account and post a review. I only did so after Googling the shop out of curiosity. Thought I'd stand up for them.

They replaced an engine with the wrong one, which then broke down after two weeks. They also cut corners on putting the exhaust back in by covering the system with silicone. I found this out when I went to another mechanic who inspected their job. After they put the right engine in, I had it inspected again and the water pump was leaking and although I was charged for it, they never replaced it with a new one.

To top it all off, they are extremely slow in turning jobs over. After it was all said and done, we were without the car for 2 1/2 months!

The Subtle Bug has extremely questionable integrity and I would avoid them at all costs.

They recommended many unnecessary repairs and told me those cost much more at other places. I only have a small problem with my car and end with pay a lot for unnecessary repairs. My advise is to avoid this shop if you don't know about car, especially for girls.

I've been taking my cars to Subtle Bug for over 10 years and I've always been happy with their work. I've even bought two cars from them (they rebuild and sell Subarus), both of which have been fabulous performers. They are excellent mechanics, friendly and honest, hard working, decent people who will treat you right.

The subtle bug on carpenter offers a variety of work on older cars at a resonable price.We recentley had a transmission rebuilt on our 1985 volkswagon.While no other shops around athens would touch it,the subtle bug was more than happy to help us out of our tranny problem.There prices are great and they work really fast to get you back on the road.
