I have found a new automotive shop that has gained my confidence. I was referred here by a long-term customer of Abee's that is not easy to please, so that is what made me think I might be onto something good. She generally has a distrust for repair people, and thinks everyone is overcharging her.
I called for a quote prior to bringing my car in. I am pleased to say that I got a complete brake job, with rotors and I feel like I got a very fair price and that the place does quality work. The staff are intelligent and professional, and the place is orderly and clean. I found it easy to schedule the work, and the shop is accessible off north Lamar behind Chuy's.
I was also convinced I needed struts (very expensive), and asked them to check them out as I thought my car was riding rough. At that point they could have said they needed to replace them and I would not have known the difference. However, they checked them out, and even test drive my car and told me the struts were fine! Made my day!!!
I referred another friend there who was also pleased with their work.
Update: I have been back several times since this review, and they continue to have my confidence. I recommend this repair shop without reservations.
