Everyone was super friendly but what? They should've told me what would actually fix my car. But instead, did a bunch of work and installed new brakes on a non-working car and charged me beforehand. I assume they are good people because a business doesn't stay in business for 40+ years for doing a poor job but I'm basically out $3000. But I had new brakes... on a non-working car.

Good experience. John clearly communicated the work and findings as things progressed. Car drives much better and is in great shape now.

The staff was super friendly. They had great communication. I m a little bummed that they were unable to fix my car. I feel like the price was too much. They only greased the front suspension, and tightened the bearings. Although, my car is air cooled, and the suspension is not stock. I wish they would ve had someone from Trafton check it out. I would have them work on my water cooled vw in the future though.

Questions Answered by Steve's Imports
What Can Make Squealing Noise From The Front Of My 91 Toyota 22re 4x4 Truck on 1991 Toyota Pickup
A loose belt, a worn pulley or nearing, or an angry mother in-law.
Brake Pedal Goes To Floor on 1990 Subaru Loyale
I’ve had bad Master Cyinders right off the shelf that leak internally. You also may want to try using a pressure bleeder rather than manually doing it.
Can A Leaking Water Pump Ruin A Timing Belt? on 2002 Acura RL
It definitely will. It may not seem so at first, but it will deteriorate over time
Why Won't Air Come Thru Front Vents Only Back on 1990 Mazda MPV
Blend doors not activating. Most common cause is control head unit not responding or blend door motors stuck or not activating. Needs to have parts of dash removed for further investigation to properly quote repairs.
Can I Use Regular Gas? on 2002 Lexus ES300
Yes you can. I recommend premium an pretty much all cars though. It burns cleaner, you get better fuel mileage. I drive a Lexus LX450 and I use Premium only because I prefer the results of a cleaner driving car.
What Ro Do If Codes Are P0016 Qnd P0017? on 2006 Mercedes-Benz E350
Could be an expensive timing chain issue or just the sensor telling you the timing is off. Regardless, it needs to get in for proper diagnosis. Not just a code reader diag. Depending on what it is, there may be in depth removal of components to check the timing issue which means you need to go into this somewhat committed. I highly doubt it will be too extreme, however it is a 12 year old car and these types of issues are expected.
Car Turns Over But Wont Start. Low Presure In Fuel Rail on 1997 BMW 328i
I recommend checking fuel pressure out of the tank. Are you getting a low pressure fault or did you put a gauge on it?
A/C Unit Faulty. Just Fixed At Shop Yesterday. Not Even 15 Hours Since Out The Shop. No Air From Front. Rear Works Fine. on 2010 Mazda CX-9
It sounds like a blend door issue. This is when the motors that turn the flaps inside the dash fail or stick causing air to circulate to one area of the cabin.
2010 Prius Cabin Filter Makes Noise Like Rattling Paper on 2010 Toyota Prius
If it is a rotational scraping sound then it is likely the fan motor that has worn out and needs replacing.
