Second time at Tolima's and once again very impressed in every way. I drive an old 944 and nobody wants to touch my car without charging me an insane premium. My car was making strange rattling and squealing noises from underneath and around the same time it started having severe acceleration issues, so I thought maybe it needed a new catalytic converter. Tolima's quickly confirmed the diagnosis, and had a new one welded into the pipe. They were so quick, I dropped my car off before work and picked it up later the same day. Also, when I checked the parts and labor costs, they were once again considerably lower than many alternatives, yet Tolima's maintained a high standard of quality (both parts and work). Tolima's doesn't mess around with needless tweaks, extra hours, or expensive parts; they do the job you need with the right parts done the first time. This is definitely the only auto shop I'll go to even if I move over an hour away.
