My main issue was that my car was not done on time. I asked if I should wait for a phone call or just come at the stated time; I was told the latter. When I arrived to pick up my car the mechanics were all standing around. I had to wait an additional 45 minutes for everything to be completed.

The manager Teddy was patient with my concerns over the considerable increase in estimate over that which I received on Repairpal. I told him the ONLY reason I came to this shop (drove in from Bushwick) was the price! He explained the cost of replacing a knocksensor is mostly labor because the intake manifold has to be removed and that the whole procedure takes at least 4 hours. He applied a discount and lowered the quote by 50 dollars which I appreciated. The next day, the car was ready when promised and I managed to get my inspection sticker.

It was fine. Didn't check fluids although it was billed for.
08/27/18
I'm a new customer, and I'm not knowledgeable enough about cars to know too much about the more intricate things that happen under the hood, but I felt like I was being treated honestly, and it was much cheaper than what my dealer quoted. Chances are, I'll keep coming back.

It s was a great experience and the owner was so helpful and attentive to ensure I was happy with the job
