Dan is a great mechanic. He’s knowledgeable and does a great job of explaining his work. In a world or quick oil changes and fast repairs, Dan is the rare mechanic who thoroughly diagnoses your car, make the repairs and also determines what steps are next. He cares that you are satisfied with the work, even calling afterwards to make sure everything is in working order.

Dan was very unprofessional! He showed up two hours after the scheduled appointment time then left two hours later without completing the job. His excuses was that it was too cold and he had to get to his other job. Completely unacceptable! He said he would come back the next day. My car was undriveable and he was going to leave my car without a wheel on a jack overnight. I can’t understand why someone would think any of this is okay. He is very disrespectful and horrible at communication. He talks over people and doesn’t listen. The only reason I gave him a star was because he actual finished the job the next day. He apologized initially then later negated that by being rude.

Dan went the extra mile to have my car ready for the winter, and finished the job excellently despite unforeseen difficulties. He worked relentlessly in the freezing weather to make sure I could drive away the same night. A local shop that helped me align my new steering rack were impressed at his skill.

It was a very good experience. He diagnosed the problem right away.

Dan is simply awesome!!! He is as courteous as they come, a true gentleman. Does this man know about cars?? I am a bit of a geek so I stuck around while he took apart my car to get to the wheel bearing and I kept pestering him with questions. You can tell that he has a passion for mechanics and cars and he can write a textbook on it. His knowledge is immense and it shows in the great service he provides. He was much more thorough than I would expect someone to be and I can guarantee that his own expectations for his job will be higher than yours lol. He is amazing and I will be sure to request him on any further service work. This was my first experience with this website and Dan's service will make me a lifelong customer.

Dan was promptly on time, did a thorough testing of the pre-sale vehicle, and appeared very knowledgeable about his work. His personality was friendly, he related to each of the parties involved well, and we were very happy with him.

he completed the job on valve gasket but when he broke a part(fan cover)... instead of replacing it he poured glue all over it it was not a pretty sight I had to scrape all the excess glue off and fix it myself
