Is there a web resource to find good mechanic/Auto Repair shop?
I did google it for auto repair + review. I did find yellow pages with review.
As I called the shop had a conversations. Here are the out comes
- The shop talked as knowledgeable/friendly, shows bad review comments/experience
- My Neighbors had bad experience with shop that shows excellent reviews on yellow pages
- There are shops sell diagnostic services first and some say they do it without charging for diagnostic services
How do we pick right one?
I did not find any reviews for my mechanic(involved in Timing belt episode) or entry at BBB. (It is puzzling me).
The 2nd shop that I went to but would not touch the engine after it was taken out, what was my opinion on them with the conversation you had. I find the following mixed reviews.
Great service, reasonable prices, great work, good quality, and Nancy is the best!

I took my car to repair a water leak and they said that it would be $900.00. They said they repaired it and get me 18 month warranty. I drove the car several weeks and the car is losing water faster. I took the car back and they said that it would be another $1400.00 to fix the problem. They were very rude and unprofessional.
The people here were extremely professional, VERY nice and willing to listen… until my car got keyed in their parking lot! At that point, they displayed some of the most vile and unprofessional behavior I’ve seen. They claimed that had no liability in terms of fixing it, and they offered absolutely NO sympathy for the situation, which would have cost thousands of dollars to fix. (I have since donated my car.)Everyone I’ve spoken to concerning the situation - multiple car mechanics, auto shop teachers, etc., was horrified by my treatment. It’s one thing to politely say to a customer that they’re not liable; it’s quite another to hurry them off the property, ignore their questions and pleas for help, and show no care or compassion for the customer.Please stay away! They are only after your money and have no true care for your car.

Very knowledgable and good mechanics.Very Fair priced and helpful. Not as gentle on my vehicle as Id like but MUCH better then most Ive dealt with. Ive shared their cards with many friends and my customers and would stand behind them because good people and good mechanics are hard to find.
Having my vehicle at this place was the WORST experience I have had. First DO NOT PAY UP Front. They lie and cheat you with inferior parts and promise to call you which never happens. Willie left all but two bolts out holding my trans crossmember in my vehicle which is illegal. they do not know what they are doing. A TRUE BACK ALLEY GARAGE!
(Formerly Happy Jacks) have been my mechanics for 7 years! The first big job I brought them was a “lemon” of a car, and they replaced the engine; still running. I was so happy wit their abilities, we did it again… this time in a Passat; still running.
Now Aaron and Willie, and the rest of the crew are the only ones I trust to service all my vehicles (2 commercial trucks included).
Thanks for sharing.
