Excellent customer service and knowledge! He diagnosed the problem and went that extra mile to correct it. I thought it was the fuel pump that was bad and I was far from it! Great job Peter!

Carlos is a great mechanic, who is hard working and knows how to get the job done. He showed up on time every time for every appointment he had with me. My CV axle was stuck in the transmission and with many attempts and tedious hours, he managed to remove and replace my axle. I would request him again for future appointments and would recommend him to family and friends. He's done a great job and I am a satisfied customer!

I was not actually here, but from the email and text notifications, and call very good customer service. I do question the one item, transmission fluid condition. Since the Borrego has NO dipstick, without actually pulling the drain plug (which I assume was not done) there is no way to know the condition of the fluid. Otherwise, great.

All about Alternator Replacement

The alternator is the component that charges the battery in your car. When you use electrical components in your car (stereo, lights, etc.), the battery loses power. The alternator recharges the battery, replenishing the lost battery power. The alternator is located in the engine compartment. If the alternator is not working properly, your car will only stay running for as long as the battery has power stored. Once the battery loses power, your car will not start. Normally, a malfunctioning alternator will turn on the battery warning light or will have a low volt gauge reading.
