Gary was awesome as usual.

by - Verified Customer July 27, 2017

I just really like the friendly service.. I've been a loyal customer for years and always satisfied.

by - Verified Customer July 20, 2017

The shop repaired the AC, locating a refrigerant leak, but another one in the heater core revealed itself after we picked up the car. Since a heater core replacement has a higher labor cost, Mike worked to keep the cost down, even doing some of the labor himself. We were very grateful for Mike's help.

Seven had the 1999 Jeep Wrangler thoroughly checked out and went out of his way to find a part that would work since Jeep had discontinued the item
Many thanks.

grease was left on the dashboard after the repair was done but otherwise a good experience

by - Verified Customer June 19, 2017

I was pressured to do their a brake safety repair in addition to other recommended repairs and fully understand and appreciate why. My experiences at Mikes have been fair and excellent.

Friendly and courteous. Have had an issue for a long time and haven't found a mechanic to find it, but Mile's told me to bring it back if I was still having the issue and I have. They back their service which is a nice change.

Great service!!

by - Verified Customer June 04, 2017

I think you should subtract the amount paid to check out your car problem from the amount to fix it if you're going to charge to look at your car. I understand why to charge to look at a car; when other do not. Because it cost you time and work to find out a problem and people my go to get the work done at another shop and you lose out, but you should remove that fee from the end total as long as the work is complete with you...just a thought, and feedback.

Really appreciate the quality of the work performed. I was seriously considering selling the car in question, but the end result and renewed vehicle confidence have changed that perception - I now actually enjoy driving the car again. Although it was a moderately expensive repair, I consider the investment a pretty darn good value compared to the alternative.

It was my first time there at the shop and I'm very pleased I would highly recommend it to my friends and family.

The team there was great - I brought in a disabled truck that of course wouldn't repeat the problem in the shop. They worked hard to figure out what was wrong and were extremely responsive and proactive in contacting us. We will be back! Thank you!

I had a very poor encounter with a previous mechanic/shop six times. And then came to Mike's the remedy the issue. Mike's shop performed work, but still unsure if the car is completely full fixed, some lingering problems still occur from the previous shop. I haven't taken the vehicle on a longer trip or over 40mph so a bit wary what will happen.

I appreciated their ability to get the car diagnosed and repaired all in the same day.

Mike is more like 'that friendly neighbor guy who likes to works on cars.' I rely on his wisdom and trust him completely. A few years back, he even walked over to my office nearby to administer CPR to my trusty old Escort -- already too late -- and was compassionate when we had to ... gulp ... put her down. Never DID get those ashes to spread at Plum Street, though.
