Ira was professional, knowledgeable, honest, and helpful. I couldn't have asked for a better mechanic. I will definitely ask for him next time my car needs service, and I highly recommend him. It was a convenient and cost-effect service all around.

Whatever you're paying him, it's not enough. He needs a raise. ALL THE RAISES! Extrheeeeemely professional, courteous, knowledgeable, precise, and determined, he systematically and methodically diagnosed a 14 month old mystery like a scientist, testing and ruling out various electric issues that only a thoroughly trained and experienced mechanic could do.

Ira was great! His communication was good, arrived on time. He took the feedback I had from a local chain car shop but did his own assessment and showed me how the shop got it wrong and I didn't need one of the big expensive repairs. He did the one remain repair, and pointed out that my brake pads were worn so added on the job to replace those. Ira was professional, knowledgable, and was vested in making sure I got the most for my money. The job site was clean when he left. I will definitely look to use him in the future for more car maintenance or repair.

on July 06

Thank you Ira. He checked brake pads as well. All good. Thus, cheaper than expected....that NEVER happens, right? Will definitely book next service here!

I just want you to know, Iras was very good and knowledgeable and fixed my Chevrolet equinox. My wife is happy and do am I. I rate Iras the highest rating I can give and would recommend him highly. Thanks Iras, you are the best. I retired from GM Chevrolet motor Division in 1996 after 20 + years and I watched and talked to him and I knew he was well qualified. Pastor Willie Fowler.

Ira is amazing. After his inspection he was able to find the problem and point it out to me. Without him I would have never known what was wrong with my car.



Ford F-150
on September 18

Ira arrived on time and was exceptionally nice. He took the time to check everything on my truck to see if he could solve the problem without replacing the part. Kept a great attitude the entire appointment even while having to deal with one of the most frustrating fastener bolts (f150 top starter bolt, universally hated on the internet). Finished the job and my truck works great now.

Ira was able to arrive early, and tackled removal of alternator on my Hyundai. It was no easy task because of location and space. He is hands down a great mechanic. I will spread the word about this service.

The Mechanic was well on time and looked at car and he has a very good knowledge and directly pointed to the problem the car had a an oil problem,I had taken my car to a reputed car repair Christian brothers and those guys just rip off money and do nothing.This guy was very straightforward and told in detail about the issue and told me to put some oil and then he fixed the lose oil filter.There was no noise afterwards and then car was running smooth.I am glad I called your mechanic and got this corrected which saved lot of money.Great job Ira you are very professional and friendly,right to the details you know the issue and recommend proper corrections to resolve issue...Hats off to you.
