Eugenio arrived on time, was very courteous, expertly and efficiently repaired my windshield washer system (asking permission for certain fixes and never assuming that I wanted it), and even concluded it with a brief inspection of my car. I highly recommend him for any car service and will no doubt ask for him again.
