I used to use them, but they are not the cheapest.

I used a guy named Lenny. 718-342-7883.  His shop is in Brooklyn, I forgot where.  I live in Queens and he picked up my car, repaired it, and dropped it off.  He did the same for my mom who lives in Queens.  Great job, honest, and waved those "fees"

He worked on my car this Friday and I'm very happy with him. He seems honest and his fees are modest.

I've used them for the last 4 years, and I especially liked the fact that they're open 24 hrs. But I've grown tired of them and their shtick by now, which is why I started this thread.

I was just at jiffy lube as i was out of town so didnt have a choice,   they seem a ripoff $50-60 for oil change and they try selling you stuff that you don't need.

Anyone know of a mechanic that can pass me on inspection even though it wouldn't pass necessarily?

It's an old car, drives well but I don't want to put in money to fix up.

A good mechanic - His name is Sal. He used to be on McDonald between ave J and Bay Pkwy. He moved about a year ago and is now working in the Wheels to Lease garage. He takes any car, not just if it was leased by Wheels to Lease and knows what he is doing. He will work with you and accepts used car warranties. I have been using him for almost 10 years and dont remember having a single issue with him. He does not do body work though.

Aside from going for a second opinion, how do you know if your honest-sounding mechanic is really honest?

I guess you cant know for sure, but if every time you come in he finds some expensive problem, beware. (unless your car really is THAT bad)

If he has the opportunity to do things but tells you that you don't need it or it's not worth it for you he's probably honest.
