My appointment was scheduled for 2 pm, and I sent a message at 2:15 pm providing my cell phone number, Peter called me at 2:18 pm letting me know he was running behind with a previous job. He arrived at 4:18 pm and got to work on my jeep. I know some people would be very upset with this late arrival. I honestly don't know how anyone could expect a mechanic to show up exactly on time and fix anything exactly as planned, so I was not dismayed. My original quote was $265.50. That changed to $313.35 due to an increase in parts. Again, maybe something that others might complain about, but the cost of OEM parts is not on the mechanic! Peter took his time with me and was patient in listening to my description of the problem and careful to diagnose and explain to my satisfaction. He got right to work, was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Did a fantastic job. I had an EVAP canister replaced on my 2004 Jeep. With over 150,000 miles it is not uncommon to have problems with the check engine light coming on and diagnosis codes of Evap Emissions errors. This problem has plagued me for quite some time and made smog certification a nightmare. No longer an issue for me. Codes are clear and the Jeep is running great! Peter also pointed out some other areas of concern that I will plan to address asap. I would recommend this service and Peter specifically. Very pleased with the service. I would suggest to anyone to check their expectations about the time frame for the appointment, and also prepare to be flexible on your expectation of the cost of parts. Other than that, you are in great hands with Peter Izaguirre - my new mechanic!
