The owner is pretty gruff, and he won't win any beaty contests either. If you leave your key in the door before he opens in the morning and don't include a phone number he's libel to tell you you'll need a new engine and let you stew on that for a minute or 2 before he tells a new set of spark plugs will do.
He does good work though, has reasonable (for NYC) prices, and seems honest which is about all you can ask for. He also will work on my old pre-1990 Honda which is a lot more than I can say for that lame Honda dealership in Astoria.
Also, well located -- just of the Queens Blvd exit on the BQE.
Pros: Expertise, Price
Cons: Bedside Manor
