We had the greatest guy in VA -- never overcharged. Awesome guy. Former engineer. I wanted to adopt him as a grandpa.

Anyhoo, I'd love a great recommendation for the Suwanee area.

It's actually just west of Lawrenceville off of Old Norcross Rd but we've been taking our cars to Bob at Southern Appalachian Auto since around 2000. Specializes in Acura/Honda, which is what our cars are, but does other Japanese imports, not sure about European or domestic. We've done so much business with him that we can drop off our car overnight and the next day he'll look at it to see if there are any problems or scheduled maintenance that needs to be done completely free. My sister and I would have these "check ups" done right before we had to leave for college. He's never suggested anything that didn't need to be done. A lot of places might suggest changing brakes pads when really you have a few months til you would really need them to be replaced or changing a timing belt when it's fine.

One time my 15 year old car needed a new catalytic converter so it could pass the emissions test. It also had some other emissions problems but Bob took care of it. Couldn't guarantee it would even pass and that it might have to be replaced in 3 years. 7 years and a few trips to Texas and back and we ended up retiring the car with that same converter. Passed every emissions test without any problem. It even scored very well in each test. Not bad for a car made in '91 with 250,000 miles on it that had failed before. No doubt it was thanks in large part to Bob.
