I drive a 2002 Subaru Forester and had a growling noise coming from the back of the car (turned out to be a wheel-bearing problem). To make the story short, I pulled out of Rod's with the problem fixed, at a cost LESS than the estimate, and will return there for any future service/repairs or just general questions.
I am no longer afraid to walk into a car repair place and ask a question (fear of huge bills!). - Rod's reminds me of how auto repair used to be. Explanations about what is wrong and estimates that include REASONABLE labor and parts prices. I will not be going back to the dealership for any service or repair work. -- Rod gave me a free oil change with my repair work and offered me $25 credit for any friends that I recommend, which I will do so gladly. Not for the money, but rather because I know I'm sending friends to a repair place they can trust. Great place to take your vehicle, and I enjoyed seeing the pictures on the wall of the local teams that Rod's sponsors. This place is what a local business should be. I paid less for better service than the dealerships offer. That's my bottom line and I'm recommending Rod's to friends and family.

With my car being paid off, I myself would NEVER EVER bring my car to a DEALER SERVICE again after warranty expired. Lets say they offered Me a "good deal" to trade in my Paid off car for a New one and all I came in was service and my car still made noises after. So I was hesitant to bring My car to any Mechanic again. Then...

Rod's Japanese Auto Care was recommended to My New wife to fix her Subaru after a fender bender last snow storm. She liked his work and ever since. My wife has since brought her Subaru to Rod's Japanese Auto Care to tune and fix her ageing Subaru. I came with her ever time she pickup up her Subaru and was impressed with Rod's services and desk side manor.

Impressed enough to bring My 98 Honda for service. Rod himself was friendly and upfront. Showing Me the work He and his Son did with Schematics and language that didn??t intimidate Me and make Me feel like a fool for not understanding. Rod showed Me why My car was making the noise and what the part was suppose to do. Rod and his Son even fixed some of the "Dealer, forgot to does" when the Dealer was closing and finishing up my car. I felt He know his trait Well, Rod didn't try to offer any other services I didn't need, only perhaps to change my worn out brake pads in the rear, which I did for safety sake. Armed with up to date information and State-of-the-art equipment, I felt good I had a Mechanic I could trust.

After I got my car back I was impressed with the noise it made?no noise what so ever ; ) OHHH the JoY!!! That's why I am writing this report to let you know that there is a LOCAL Auto repair shop that didn't screw Me and My Wife. Rod's Japanese Auto Care made Clients out of us. Think about it, if there was something wrong with your body, would you bring it to a doctor for a fix and all the doctor did was a "quick fix" knowing you would be back for another fix, or go to a doctor that would fix it warranty it and let his services do his talking.
