Overall a good experience, turns out our brakes were not bad...I sure do wish the squeeking would stop though. It is a great mystery. Melvin was courteous, didn't try to upsell or sell me on something we didn't need. Will use him again.

Melvin is a great mechanic and true professional. He communicated well before the appointment to get more information on the issue and called ahead of time to let me know he was on the way. He arrived on time, and was courteous and knowledgable. During the entire process, Melvin explained what he was doing and I did not get the feeling that he was ever trying to up sell any maintenance and was looking out for my best interest as a client. I highly recommend Melvin to anyone. I wish all mechanics were like this.

Outstanding attitude and work. No pressure to upscale the labor though he was able to point out a few extra things the car could use. Highly recommend.

on July 08

Melvin was very nice, efficient and on-time. Made all the repairs in my driveway on one of the hottest days of the year. Everything was cleaned up after the works was done. He took the car for a test drive. He provided an overall recommendation of "other" work that could be performed. Just gave me a quote, but NEVER forced anything on me. I loved the service and will be using them again in the future.

Melvin gets more than 5 stars in my books and im starting to spread the word as we speak. I had to get my brake pads replaced and after a quick description of the problem I was having he diagnosed I was in need of new rotors as well and saved some further damage on my car. Quick pick up from the store and he was back in no time and got right to work. He even let me watch and pick up some knowledge and is a very knowledgable man who you can tell goes the extra mile for the people he works for. I hope everyone else is lucky enough to get him as a mechanic

on March 08

Great Mechanic! Very friendly! I originally thought I was gonna need a new water pump, turned out to be a $3 gasket. We booked him again for our serpentine belt and he did a great job! Will definately recommend him to everyone. It's hard to find a good honest mechanic and he is exactly that. Thanks again Melvin!

Had a starter replacement done for my Girlfriend's car. Was told he was a very professional and knowledgeable mechanic. Kept her informed throughout the process and answered questions politely and informative. Will be using him for future services for sure. Could not have asked for better service!!

on February 17

Melvin is a very professional and knowledgeable mechanic. I booked a same day appointment with him, and he was prompt and ready to work on my last minute request. He talked me through every inspection and work item he did so I could understand better. After he diagnosed my window problem, he went above and beyond to help me temporarily close it until I could book the repair job. He was very thorough and patient throughout and did not try to talk me into doing anything that didn't need to be done. I would highly recommend Melvin to everyone that appreciates an honest and thorough work ethic and quality service.
