I've used them every so often over the last few years. Are you saying this because you had bad experience with them?

I have enough knowledge about cars not to have gotten scammed by them but they tried- others i know have gotten scammed by them- personally i have found them to be both dishonest and incompetent

I'm sad, but not surprised to hear that. What kind of scamming are you talking about?

he advised on a car i was looking to buy- he told me car was in great cond. and it would be a steal. I specifically asked about the timing belt he said nothing to worry about after checking it by s/o else it was clear that it was still the original and way past Toyota guidelines also I figured myself that the car could use new struts but he said that's just the Toyota drive (i still took the car but not after some serious haggaling with the guy) as for other cases, a friend of mine had some work done and specifically requested OEM parts on a timing belt and water pump and the mechanic told all timing belt systems are OEM he was also supposed to do an oil change at the time which wasn't done (when the check engine light went on he brought it to s/o else who said u need an oil change- when he went back to them he was told "u never got an oil change here"- at the time they charge the price of OEM parts and oil change  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

Also had bad experience with repair on wheels,  the guy gives everyone attitude and makes you wait all day.

Last time I was there,  paid a fortune for regular maintenance stuff like breaks,  tune up, filters, oil change.  I hope they were honest.

I have a friend that does good work and is trustworthy.  You can pm me for his #
