Very expensive. Not satisfied.

Had an issue with the wheel balancing due to a new start of the art balancer. There was a slight delay in getting my Jeep back , but we were both in agreement that it was the best thing to do. I will be back soon for a tire job.

Had Tire Rack tires installed at a great price and took advantage of promotion for oil/filter change. Very satisfied

Per my wife, 'Danny' was one of the rudest individual's she has ever met. We had tires installed that we purchased from Tire Rack. Danny tried to press my wife into front end alignment, etc..... then went on a tangent about how he doesn't make any money if we don't buy the extra services & he makes no money on the tire install. I understand his thoughts, but keep them to yourself. You were recommended by Tire Rack. Although we do have our own mechanic, we are always looking for other opportunities & up to this point were satisfied with Danny's. Possibly considering other services in the future. However 'Danny' put the stops on that idea. We will never return & will tell all of our friends. Thank you & please take us off of your email list.

Message From the Shop
Looking for an honest mechanic? The experience at Danny's is like looking out of a glass bottom boat and being able to see the entire ocean floor. Most people like going to the Auto Repair Garage about as much as going to the dentist. At Danny's our clear communication through texting , phone and a custom customer friendly application proves everything we say. That's right, we put it in writing and in pictures. This makes you feel like the visit to the dentist was to a massage parlor instead.

Questions Answered by Danny's Fitzway Car Clinic
Engine Starts But Very Rough And Sluggish.Has Standard Transmission With 2.2 4cy on 1999 GMC Sonoma
Sounds like a failed purge valve. Better get it checked out if there is a gas smell.
Why Is My Jeep Patriot(2011) Making Rough And Vibrating Noise After Having Cvt F on 2011 Jeep Patriot
Check to see if your receipt specify's what type fluid was used for the service? It is easy to use the wrong fluid in these times. If the receipt does not specify you can call the shop to find out exactly what fluid was used or have it serviced again and ensure the correct fluid is used.
Can You Replace The Transmission In A 2006 Bmw 750 Li Or Would It Be Best To Rebuild It on 2006 BMW 750Li
The 2006 BMW transmission is electronic and can have many causes for not operating correctly. Much more information is needed to answer your question. I would advise a qualified technician looks at it and performs diagnostics. A specialty scanner would be needed to communicate with the transmission control module. If the symptom is exactly the same after the transmission replacement , then the diagnosis may have been incorrect or the repair may have not been performed correctly.
Driver Side Door Was Replaced With A 2003 Door Now Window And Door Lock Don’t Work .Why? on 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
The most likely cause is that if the 2003 Chevrolet Silverado is equipped with a door module that it is not programmed to the the truck. If this is the case the programming is done with a pass thru programming tool and GM programming SPS software. Otherwise you could change the module from the old door over and it should work.
My Throttle Control Light Has Come On And Blinked While Driving on 2016 Jeep Compass
The most likely cause is a failed throttle body or a that the system needs cleaned and adaptive memory reset plus the throttle retrained. Either way specialty tools are needed to correctly repair this issue. Fairly low mileage for this issue to be a failed part. My guess is that something went wrong electrically like the battery may have been replaced or disconnected for some reason.

High Hydrocarbons on 1995 Chevrolet 2500 Pickup
A lot of items can contribute to this. Can you come by the shop and Ill listen to the engine and give you some advice?
High Hydrocarbons on 1995 Chevrolet 2500 Pickup
Hydrocarbons are simply raw or UN-burned fuel. Simply perform diagnostics on any item that could cause the fuel not to burn correctly. Start by checking for incorrectly installed or cracked spark plug. If they HC was good before the tune up then recheck the tune up work. Good Luck.
Repair Power Window Regulator on 2007 Jeep Liberty
Hello, Remove the door panel to diagnose what is happening. Most of the time it is a window regulator or motor that causes this on 2007 Jeep Liberty. Be very careful when removing the panel or you could do great damage to the panel. Might be better to bring in to the shop for repairs.
