I was searching for some good Toyota service shops in the Tucson area, as I can't stand paying dealer prices for regular service and don't trust my car to be serviced by ""oil change"" shops.\r
Dan's Toy Shop was recommended to me by several people in town, and I called around to a few different shops to compare prices. Dan's pricing was some of the best I've seen, certainly far less than the dealer (the dealer wanted nearly $90 for my 2006 Camry's 15,000 mile service, while Dan's charged me less than $30 for the same service!).\r
They have skilled technicians, three service bays, and use all genuine Toyota parts (the delivery guy in a Toyota uniform stopped by while I was waiting and delivered a bunch of Toyota parts) for their services. As part of my 15,000 mile service, the car required an oil change and they used Mobil Clean 5000 oil. I'm not sure if they offer synthetic oils. While I don't have a hybrid vehicle, they do have technicians trained in servicing hybrid cars, which is pretty uncommon for non-dealer shops.\r
It's rare to find a mechanic/service shop that's honest -- it seems like all the shops are trying to make a quick buck at someone's expense by upselling unnecessary services or parts. Dan's Toy Shop is different; they're honest, reliable, and I fully trust them with my money and my car.\r
If you drive a Toyota and live in Tucson, I highly recommend you check them out. Just be warned -- the building's not terribly big from the outside, and although it's painted bright red it's possible to miss the building on the first pass.
Pros: Prompt service, skilled mechanics, honest.
