After asking a number of friends about a good local mechanic for my newly purchased but not necessarily new car, one friend, with an old Cherokee, told me that this place "changed her life." Same here. I've had to seek out their services twice now, and I find them to be unfailingly honest, friendly, and wholly reliable. As a woman who knows nothing about cars, I often find mechanics to be alienating; I feel like I'm walking into a masculine world where I'm treated in a sexist manner: as that stereotypical "woman" who is to be talked down to because she knows nothing. I feel none of this at Graeves. They are willing to take tons of time to explain everything to me; they keep the old parts they took out in order to explain, using visual aids, what went wrong and how they fixed it. I totally trust them and recommend them wholeheartedly.
