In the fall of 2014 we decided to fix rather than replace our two cars, a Toyota van and an Explorer. Since then we have had two transmission rebuilds, a radiator replacement, two alternator replacements, and a starter yesterday on short notice. I'm sure there was more.
These guys are amazing: smart, efficient, honest, fast (prudently quick; not blast through the job.)
Finding them was the result of an Internet search, some contact with a friend who reviewed them favourably, and just some general due diligence.
Oh, and for simple things like an oil or filter change, they are easy to deal with. I'd give them 36 stars if I could.
