Very nice friendly mechanic. Very helpful with with questions that I had. Offered good advice. He explained some of the problems to me and what should be the next to resolve it before spending unnecessary monies. This was my first time using him and will not be my last. I would recommend him to anyone. Especially women because he does not seem to take advantage of our knowledge of not knowing things about cars.
