Can anyone recommend a good car mechanic in the GR area?

I know very little about cars and I don't want to get taken advantage of because of it. :-/

I've got a late '90s Buick and I need to get a busted wiper fixed and perhaps a tune-up. Will eventually need transmission work, I'm sure. ... so ideally, I'd like to find someone who does it all.

Thanks in advance, everyone!

I've had good experiences with Swanson's in Grandville and Tolman in Allendale. I haven't been to Tolman in long time, though. I've had my car serviced more recently and more times at Swanson's since they are closer, and I would not hesitate to bring my car to them again.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Heritage Service Center on Scribner NW. They've serviced our cars for eons. Owned by Tom Toft and Jim VanderPloeg. They are not sexist, as so many car (and scooter, for that matter,) places are!
