We've had the (not pleasure) of taking our car on a couple of occasions to Calanni Auto Service on Madison Avenue.
Charlie is an unusual breed of mechanic - allowing someone to bring in their parts they want to use on their car and just pay for the service to install them.
Charlie has serviced our car on several occasions. THe quality of work is very good. The price of repairs is comparable.
We do have a couple of 'complaints'. If Charlie isn't in the shop, you can't pick up your car or find out about the status of your car. There are employees there but they can't help us? Another issue is the amount of time they have your car while doing repairs.
