I've been an automotive technician since 2004. In that time I've gained experience working on Domestic and Asian cars, but specialize in working on European vehicles. Over my career I've worked at major dealerships and independent shops. Providing efficient and thorough repairs to my customers is my top priority.

Second service from Charles: on time, fast, friendly, no problems!

on November 01

Charles was on time and very helpful. I learned some good pointers in managing my old 1977 truck to keep it running and to avoid potential problems in the future.

on October 20

Very skilled, articulate mechanic. Got here on time, determined the repair needed fewer parts than quoted, completed the repair and saved me 44% of the original quote and 62% of the dealer quote.

on October 09

Great experience with Charles. He arrived on time, was courteous, was knowledgeable, and was done with the repair in an hour as promised. I plan to use his services again.

on September 29

Charles was an outstanding mechanic. He was on time and immediately identified the issues. He spent extra time going over other problems with the car and immediately completed a new quote. Will be using him again in the future.



Mazda 6
on September 28

Holy cow - this is what car service should be!!! Charles was on time, super pleasant and above all else HONEST. He immediately determined that I did not need all the of the work I had been told I needed by a local dealership service dept. I saved over $500 from the criminal, fraudulent quote I was given by the dealership. I could not be happier with this first experience and intend to use Charles for all my car service needs in the future.

on November 08

Charles arrived on time and got job done fast. He explained me my cars condition and my follow up actions clearly.

on September 16

Charles saved me a ton of money! I had requested a few repairs for my Audi A4 based on recommendations from an auto shop. After inspecting the car, he advised me against some of the repairs as unnecessary at this time. I am definitely going to have him attend to my BMW 330 next.

Charles blew off the first appointment but made the second and proved to make a correct diagnosis of my problem. Thanks Charles!

Charles is very professional and knowledgeable. He understands my car. In additional to the great service he's done, he also told me about car maintenance and its current condition and answered my questions. what's needed to be changed and what not. He comes to help you instead of trying to grab money as soon as possible and running for the next job.

on February 06

Charles is the best. I want to request him to conduct the rest of the work I need done on my car! Just an absolute pleasure working with him. Thank you so much, Charles!

on February 02

This was my first experience with and everything went like clockwork. Charles arrived on time, finished the work to my satisfaction, and spent time explaining the condition of my car. On top of that, it cost me less than half of what the dealer charges for this work. All I needed to do was lead him to the car, leave, go back when he was finished, and sign my name. I plan to use and Charles whenever possible in the future.

He arrived a few minutes early, explained everything to me and completed the job quickly and professionally. It was a very good first time experience using this service and Charles was great.

on January 20

Charles was timely, courteous, and very professional. I used his services to diagnose a problem with my 2008 VW GTI - Charles arrived in a VW Golf himself. He explained the problem in detail, and seemed very knowledgable/familiar with the car. I would definitively recommend him, and use his services again.



Chrysler 300M

Great experience with Charles. He was polite, professional and communicated well throughout the whole process. It's unfortunate that it was cold and rainy out while he was working, but it never effected his attitude or work performance.



Dodge Ram 2500
on January 05

Charles was great fixed my Dodge 2500 Ram O2 sensors and break cable. I am very happy with the service and will continue using Charles for all my auto repairs. The initial hiccups with the 1st appointment, that were associated with the home office, is behind us now.



Acura TL
on January 09

Charles is a really nice guy. He did have to reschedule once but then he arrived on time and did a great job. He replaced my breaks despite the bitter cold. We drove it around the blocks a few times (his suggestion) before he left to confirm everything was to my liking. Nice job.
