I have twice taking my car to Todd to address issues with the car making sounds that were not normal.
The first time, Todd spent 30 minutes investigating what was causing an odd noise that could only be heard inside the car (not outside of it). After jacking the car up, Todd said it was the muffler that was vibrating against the car frame. He quickly fixed the issue Cost of Todd finding the problem and then quickly fixing it? $0.00
The second time the car was taken in, it was making a weird noise like the car's belt's were slipping. Todd quickly jacked the car up and looked underneath and noticed the power steering brake hose was leaking very small traces of power steering fluid. He then filled up the power steering resevoir to its recommended level. Todd said the very tiny leak could be fixed by replacing a power steering hose, but said since the leak was very minor and due to the fact that I was planning to sell the car in short time frame, I should pay close attention to it and see if it gets worse. Cost of analyzing the issue? $0.00.
Todd is very honest and will tell you straight up if you need something or not. He doesn't pressure you into getting repairs like the other shops do. And when he does make a repair, the price is fair and honest.
Do yourself a favor and make Todd your primary mechanic. He's one of the few remaining mechanics that won't nickel and dime you for repairs and when repairs are made, he does it right the first time.
