Editorial review from Citysearch 10/27/2012

Dimitri is the most knowledgeable mechanic I know. He is also the most honest. He saved me thousands of dollars on a repair that another mechanic had quoted a price and repair. more

DO NOT GO HERE 8/22/2011

This was the worst experience I have ever had at a mechanic. My car is in worse shape now than it was before I brought it in. I feel completely swindled. Keep reading if you want to hear the story of why I recommend EVERYONE STAY AWAY FROM THIS ESTABLISHMENT. I heard about the mechanic, Dmitri, from a friend who gave a great recommendation. When I dropped my car off he was amiable, if not a bit eccentric. I asked him to change the timing belt and water pump on my ?97 Toyota Camry. My car was running fine before I took my car to D&G. I was only going there for preventative maintenance. It took him 4 or 5 days, but problems arose before I had even left the parking lot. Right when I started my car there was a terrible squealing coming from under the hood. Dmitri told me to pop the hood, and I watched him as he manipulated the tension on the alternator belt. The squealing subsided a little, and then he told me, ?It is going to make that noise for a little bit as it wears in, but it should go away. Let me know if it doesn?t.? I don?t know a lot about cars, so I trusted him. I drove it back to Queen Anne, which is where the car stayed for the next couple weeks as I went on vacation. When I got back into my car I was still hearing the squealing, so I figured I would go back to Dmitri. Unfortunately the next time I started the car I heard a terrible noise under the hood. When I looked I found the drive belts were totally damaged AND the crank pulley had come completely apart. I had to pay to get it towed to the dealer, where they had to replace the entire pulley sub-assembly, and the two drive belts. (As a side-note, I had the drive belts replaced three months ago and had been driving my car with absolutely NO problems until leaving D & G) HERE IS THE KICKER: the mechanic at the dealership also told me that there was, ?A bearing type noise behind the timing cover.? Apparently Dmitri was incompetent with everything that he touched. I paid D & G Auto Repair a little over $700 for the initial preventative maintenance. I drove my car twice before it broke down and had to get it towed ($65) to the dealership. The dealership charged me $562.99 to fix all of the damage. On top of all of this I still need to pay someone to get back inside the timing cover to figure out what is making the noise that mysteriously appeared after Dmitri worked on the car. I went back to Demitry to ask what he was going to do to remedy this situation and he told me, ?Cars break down from time to time. I did not do anything to cause any of the damage.? He kept saying that he was in no way responsible for anything, and in the end offered me, ?$200 cash to forget the whole thing.? This guy is the reason mechanics have a bad reputation. He has cost me over a thousand dollars. TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO NEVER DO BUSINESS HERE. more

""D"" is by far the best mechanic I have met in a long time(sans the look of his shop).Very honest and very reliable.The only mechanic and body work guy in town who wears flip flops to work.(he's from the greek islands)He saved me and a couple other people in the short time I was at his shop.Look no further.He'll even offer you a coke!!! Pros: Best brake job in town!! more

Fantastic/Trustworthy 5/4/2009

I would trust this guy with any car, anytime and with a blank check. The place is a little dirty, but I have had body work, brakes and other work done and he does an amazing job. A great mechanic and person. Reasonably priced. A gem. Pros: Completely Trustworthy Cons: Zero more
