He was great. Energy was really infectious and he took the time out to actually help me get to know my car. He found out the problem quick and while doing it he gave me a couple life lessons. Definitely going to book him based off the recommended things he says I need done.

Melvin called me the day before my appointment (on Super Bowl Sunday nonetheless) to talk about the issues with my car. He arrived a tad early and fixed my car into the dark of night. I had to go to work and he didn't feel comfortable leaving my key in the console in the car and so he brought it to me at work! Melvin was top notch and my car is all the better because of him.
