John is AMAZING!! He's professional, punctual and really takes the extra time to explain services to my vehicle. He's extremely knowledge about car's, particularly my '97 Chevy Malibu! Thanks to John, I'll soon be able to visit my elderly Mom in Fresno and my son, who's away at college. Thanks John!

John is the best mechanic I have come across in quite some time. He was very punctual and knows his work inside and out. He is a very calm low key person to talk with. He didn't make you feel like I have no clue about my vehicle and needed repairs. John finished the job in less time than the "book" time to complete the job. If you want a trustworthy and knowledgeable mechanic John is your man. I plan on having John do my future repairs.

John is a AWESOME honest guy that took the time to explain everything to me that he was doing and what recommendation is needed. I will always personally request him by name for any service on my car and friends cars. He delivered on time as promised. Never meet a better mechanic. The cost of service was much cheaper the general mechanic shop.

John was very professional and did an amazing job on replacing the break pads.

He was quick and what seemed efficient, but when I went to my car today (mind you I have had no issues with my car since I bought it.) I have a trail of oil coming from the front of my car. I check under neath and the closure that covers where my oil plug is missing and there is a puddle of oil on the ground coming from where the oil plug should be. It is now Christmas and I can't take a chance driving my car to far because it is leaking oil. Also, there is a screw loose on my undercarriage and can fall out at any time. I now have to take my care to the dealer to g Mind you this guy et it repaired. John Paakkari's report and service recordings say I had no issues, leaks or lights on my dash. Thats because he turned the care on with no key, also he reported the wrong mileage on my car, thats because he did not turn my car on or ask to turn it on. If he would have secured the plate and oil plug properly I would not be having the issues I have now. I want my money back and I want them to pay for the cost of what this will be to repair. Now BMW is the only service provider I can take the car to for repairs because of his screw-up. Your Mechanic / John is a horrible service. I will never use it again
