Tom has been working with cars for over 20 years. He is a self-taught mechanic whose inquisitive nature and engineering know-how has driven him to have a strong fundamental understanding of automotive systems and components. Shops look to Tom to take on more complex projects when needed and rely on him for his methodical and diligent approach to diagnostics which lead to more accurate diagnoses rather than throwing parts at a problem. He has a natural knack for cars and prides himself in the quality of his work. He also loves chatting with customers and helping them understand the work he does and how they're car works under the hood. Tom's favorite car is a BMW M5.

Tom did a thorough job and did not charge me for a 2nd wheel bearing that was not yet needed replacing. It just took longer than he initially projected.

Wow !!!! This was so easy........I was looking at scheduling a tow, scheduling an appointment to have my car looked at and then worked on, scheduling a ride home/and back...all it took was one click and I had an appointment for 12 hours later AT MY HOUSE !! Everything was fixed and done within 45 minutes !!! Tom is a great guy.....explained everything to me every step of the way.....even checked things that had nothing to do with my battery. What a relief!!!!!! Would recommend ( and specifically Tom Palarz) to ANYONE !!!!!! Thanks made my day !!!!!!! Sharon Osland

Hyundai Tucson

on November 20

Tom was great and very honest mechanic I brought my own parts, ( rear brake pad set, two rotors, brake cleaner, brake fluid and Grease) He told me the old rotors are quite good and if I want to keep the old one I could save money. I ended up saving altogether around $175 ( $30 refund from his labor and $145 when I returned two rotors, brake cleaner ( since rotor was not replaced, and pads only does not required this cleaner- thanks to Tom’s honesty) The car shop quoted me after the inspection much higher including rotors, which was unnecessary in my car case. I saved a lot plus I use the premium quality parts as per my choice. ‘your mechanic’ can bring the parts too

Unfortunately we had a sudden drop in temperature however Tom still showed up to my home to complete the job. He did a great job cleaning up around the engine (especially considering he found a dead rat in there). Very thorough and made sure everything was working properly before he left. Thanks again Tom! Really appreciate you and the work you did!!!
