The man who owns this shop is about the most amazing, accommodating, hard-working, and fair person I've ever met. I have come to him three times to work on my 1993 Nissan Altima and have been so delighted each time that I've tipped him well above average.
When I say accommodating, I mean that he's allowed me to keep my car there a few days after he completed the work because I was on vacation. He's opened up his shop after hours and has worked late into the night in order to assist me in an emergency. I've towed my car there in the middle of the night, and can just slip the key under the garage door with a note as to what happened, and my phone number, and he'll start work first thing in the morning and call me when he figures out what's wrong.
When I say fair, I mean that he will ask me if I would like to purchase used or discounted parts and will allow ME to keep the savings. He charges $60 an hour for labor, and will always round down. He worked for 30 minutes once and actually only charged me $30. If he doesn't know what's wrong or can't find the source, he will TELL you so instead of making you buy expensive parts on a hunch. (the only thing he couldn't figure out was how water was getting into my trunk--not too serious)
The place is a little hard to find. Turn onto Nicholas from Cornelius Pass Road and then take the first right into an industrial-type park. Drive all the way to the back and take a left. He's the last tenant on the left. I have to admit it looks shady, but this guy has never tried to cheat me, calls several times while he's working to let you know what's wrong and to ask what you'd like to do about it, calls you immediately when he's done, and as long as he has room for parking, he'll hold on to it a little longer until you're able to pick it up.
I'm not sure if he accepts all forms of payment, because I try to pay in cash, but give him a call if you need any help. You won't be sorry!
