They are a decent shop, if not a little overpriced. They have been there for a few years, and are always recommended by people I know who have been there.

You may also want to look at Summit Automotive nearly next door to them. I am a former employee, and I can tell you that they are some of the most honest and well-trained folks I have met in my years of working in the automotive field.

I receive no benefit by recommending them to you.

I would go to Roy's Automotive on Wetmore road. they are rated high on Angies List.

Over the summer I got a tone of work done to my car. AC repair, new breaks and a transmission fluid change. They are as honest as it gets

Thanks homeslice60148 & johnts71 for the recommendations.

I'll check them out.
Actually Summit Automotive is a little closer to me so will probably give them a try.

Summit is next door to Finsanto. I am a heavy user of Finsanto for the past two years and will validate what Homeslice said about competent but slightly expensive. No experience with Summit. I wouldn't say Finsanto is particularly new, but they were called Carrs initially and had to do a name change.

problem with this is angies list is one big scam. those 'glowing reviews' were probably made by employee(s) of the company

who would pay for the right to review someone on a private list? thats dumb!

I've heard that about Angies List too.
That's why I would rather get recommendations from someone that has used the place vs reviews (especially paid reviews)
johnts71 said he got a ton of work done over the summer and gave a good recommendation, so I won't rule them out.

I see lots of ads for Belden Brothers. One of their shops is on Fredericksburg Road (I think).
I feel that if a shop is really good they don't have to spend lots of money on paid advertising (it ain't cheap). Word of mouth is the best advertising there is. So I tend to avoid shops that are over advertised.
I also feel if they are good they don't have to try to lure customers with so-called "Specials" (usually not really specials anyway) . Just mho
