Mr. Phan came on time or a little early. I could track his arrival on the website so there was transparency about the appointment. He replaced my power steering belt in a few minutes and then checked the tires and brakes. He offered an explanation about the belt heating up and gave me a tip about future symptoms on alternators. He will be coming back soon to change my brake pads. The current bid was accepted and the actual cost was $30 less. I am a big fan. MMM
