The owner, Alan Blanchard, is a very ethical and fair person, and in the 35 years he has worked on my cars I have always been treated fair and respectfully. Not only is he a trusted mechanic, but a good person.

This is one of the most professional shops I've ever dealt with, in 40 years of car ownership, of many makes/models. Alan and Paul are straight shooters, and very highly knowledgeable. No BS... just the facts. Service like this is a rare find these days, but SO appreciated. Brad Fisk

Alan and Paul were both helpful and respectful . Though the labor cost is high, they were able to save me money by replacing only what was necessary.

Great job on cam replacement. Alan had to drill out a seized bolt and clean the assembly on his time. I appreciate that

Paul was very courteous and professional. The work was completed to my satisfaction but there was a minor issue with a sensor which took a little longer to resolve. Overall, I was very satisfied with the service.

Allen and Paul are my heroes when it comes to Audi repair. But the last trip to the shop was a little short on substance. Specifically, I had expected the clutch safety switch problem to be repaired and it is acting up again.

Questions Answered by A & P Specialties
Alternator Workshop Warning Displayed Goes Off By It Self Just Replaced Alternat on 2001 Volkswagen Passat
The first thing to do is test the alternator output. Additional testing for fault codes might be necessary to find your problem. Parts quality has been an increasing problem in recent years. We can test your system and tell you exactly what is wrong. Please contact us if you would like to schedule an appointment.

Good day the alternator that was installed could be defective the system should have been checked to determine if the alternator was actually the problem. Was there any other symptoms before the alternator was replaced ( battery going, dead jump starting needed )
