“One of the tool ol' guys - so grateful we still have such honest and dependable people like Dave and his employees. I live in Seattle but was really glad to drive up there after hearing how good he was from another car repair guy (a great Volvo guy who only works on older models, not mine). I generally trust word of mouth, and remember seeing this place many ears ago, driving past - and wondering if it was really good since they specialized just in transmissions, which I thought was pretty cool. So, I ended up going up there, and having them look at my new car, since the tranny seemed 'slippy.' They were happy to make an appointment and they test drove it, only to tell me that this was how my type of transmission behaved (not as tight as my old Mercedes) and I should have nothing to worry about, at least for a while. They were happy to go over my car a little with me, and really took the time to explain things, such as no need to flush the transmission, and such. I left feeling confident that this place would never try to sell me anything I didn't truly need. They are one of the good old places that goes by the motto of saving you money and gaining a customer - THIS is the way to do business, even if it is hard to find people this honest any more.
