Ever hear of those old style mechanics who could listen to your engine for about 4 seconds and immediately know what the problem is? Kurt's the closest I've personally come across to that. It took him about 15 seconds to discover a leak in the air hose of my wife's car that would have taken another place $75 to maybe figure out through their machines. He was also able to get me a brand new transmission for my '99 Camaro Z-28 backed by a GM warranty for less than two other places wanted to charge for a rebuild with practically NO warranty. The bottom line is this. Every time I ever take a car to Kurt, the job gets done right. Sometimes, he's less expensive for the work performed, sometimes he's more expensive. However, he does what is necessary to fix the problem, nothing more, nothing less. Lastly, a more honest man, I don't think I evern met. When he gives an estimate, he sticks to it (unless the actual repair cost is less than he said). Kurt, you get the job done right, you're fairly priced, and an honest man.
