Coming from a family where my great grandpa owned his own automotive shop for his entire life, makes me pretty darn picky when it comes to mechanics. That being said Joel does the job right and I really appreciate that. I have little 2000 vw bug that's had electrical problems since the day I got it. She's been in and out of so many garages, even the vw dealer was no help. Joel was the first person to actually work out the problem and use trial and error, instead of some bullshit quick fix to send me on my way. My little car has never been so reliable! It's such a relief to know my car will start in the morning. Joel and his team have also fixed up my husband's scion xb and kept it running smooth for a really great price! Being newlyweds, of course we appreciate a good deal when we see one! they are able to work with our schedules, and always get the job done in a timely manner. They do great smog checks too, fast, easy, no fuss. We are so happy with Joel's automotive, I just couldn't see us going anywhere else.
