Who? Me?, 07/05/2023
I first talked to Daniel when I was calling multiple mechanics for a pre purchase inspection for a new car. Daniel was so friendly and accommodating, that I programmed their number into my phone, so, when I ultimately decided to fix my own car instead of buying a new one, I gave them a call. Steve, the mechanic, personally took time to answer all of my many questions and patiently explained the process to me. He ultimately rebuilt my engine for me, and I couldn't be happier. My total bill including engine rebuild (which from drop-off to pick-up took about 5 1/2 weeks), timing belt, water pump, etc. was $6300.
