Only because of Mr Hough, excellant attitude and calm approach towards the job . Reference to the question below. I have and will reccommend your company to others I know based on my experience with Joe. In other words it's "Joe" I recommend !

All about Drive Belt Tensioner Replacement

A Drive Belt Tensioner is a pulley mounted to either a spring mechanism or to an adjustable pivot point that is used to keep constant tension on your serpentine belt. That is the big long belt in the front of your engine. The tensioner rides on the outside surface of the belt to put pressure, or tension, on the belt and against the pulleys that drive things like the alternator, power steering, air conditioner, etc.
