I never thought I would go on CitySearch to compliment a car mechanic as I?ve dealt with my fair share of dishonest, inept car mechanics in the past, but I just went through a four month ordeal and thought I would share with everyone what the guys at Pinky?s did. \r
I had to bring my car in to Pinky?s when the geniuses down at EZ Lube somehow managed to bungle a simple radiator flush and overheated my car. I spoke to their manager and he told me to take it to Pinky?s. These guys were COMPLETELY OBJECTIVE and went step by step to correctly diagnose the cause, starting with the thermostat, then the water pump and radiator. When none of that worked, they eventually found the engine was cracked because of EZ Lube and now I needed a new motor. My engine was totaled. Once I got EZ Lube to accept responsibility for the damage (a nightmare in itself), Pinky?s did a nationwide search and finally located one that not only fit my car, but was a quality engine as well. They got it shipped, delivered, and put it in fast. I?m now back on the road and the car drives great. \r
These guys, Dion and Ralph, worked with me and EZ Lube over a VERY LONG period of time to find the right solution to the problem. I?m sure some mechanics would have told me to take my car elsewhere after four months of my car sitting on their lot, but these guys stuck with me the entire way and helped me get my car fixed right. They?re just a couple of cool, honest guys who do great work and I would recommend to anyone. And judging from comments I heard from other customers while I was there, plus the amount of cars that I noticed are always on their lot, it just reinforced to me that they?re running an honest, dependable, and reasonably-priced business. I?m not even going to mess with EZ Lube or Jiffy Lube anymore, not even for simple flushes or oil changes. These guys have my business now.
Pros: Honest, reasonable, high quality work, experienced, fast
Cons: None that I can tell
