John was a little early and very polite. Once the services were finished he asked me general questions about how the car runs and gave me suggestions on what I can do to keep my car running it's best. He's very easy to talk to and was able to explain complex engine work in basic terms. I will be using John again.

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.

It was immediately apparent that John loves his job. He was friendly and took the time to listen to our issue. John explained what he found in layman terms so I could understand what was happening with my car. I would recommend John to my family and friends and will have him work on all my car again.
