Mitchell's Auto Repair, Brooklyn, NY
Diogenes -- look no further. We found an honest, intelligent, communicative and experienced auto repair person in Mitchell Zelner of Mitchell's Auto Repair in Brooklyn.
After reading an article about his work in the NY Times we thought it would be worth the trip from Manhattan. Our old Suburu had engine problems that no other mechanic could diagnose properly; we also had a slipping transmission. The attention Mitchell gave to examining the car was exceptional. He did it with us, putting it up on the lift, showing us what he was checking, and the problems he had found. Then he took the car for a test drive with us. He gave us a detailed estimate for the work required on the engine, and then suggested we have the transmission checked out at Globe Transmission across the street first. Because, if the transmission were too expensive, we might not want to invest further in the car. This was indeed the case. So we did not have any work done and Mitchell did not charge us anything. We found Mitchell to be an honest and caring person who treated us as a friend. We recommend him wholeheartedly.
