They were very honest and very capable. He just saves us a lot of money because the price was very reasonable.

The motor of My 2003 Saab 95 was running very unevenly, so I took it to Arto to check it out. On the spot, very quickly he concluded the IM (ignition module) , $600 saab, $400 OEM part, had to be replaced, work was to cost $60 (1 hr). I was suspicious of the problem, so I decided to check online, before proceding with the repair. Well, I replaced only the spark plugs myself- a 10 minute job and th...

Arto's is great! He's fair, honest, and relatively inexpensive.

Description of Work
Someone turned left in to me and I had a lot of mechanical damage on my car. They actually hit me so hard that they bent my back axle.

I had my car (2003 SAAB 95) towed to Arto's shop, since it broke down on the highway. Next day Arto was able to start on the car. Arto was quick to find the problems and in two days I had my car ready. He was also very responsive, calling me to keep me current on the work and costs. I should say that Arto had been recommended to me earlier by a local guy, who had known him for a long time. I also ...

Description of Work
Needed starter, alternator, serpentine belt, idle pulley and sub-frame bushings. At $60/hr all cost me 1150, which was $500-600 less than quotes from other mechanics. I had researched the prices for these repairs just the week before, since I knew that they were coming.

He charged $130 for installation, alignment, and balancing. He is usually available whenever I need him; his schedule is open. His prices are always much more reasonable than the other mechanics. It is a small shop. So, I know who is doing the work. If anything goes wrong, he knows whom to deal with right away. He and his crew are laid back, but professional also. It is not like going to a dealers...

When I first met him, he was at another gas station, but now he has his own place. He is straight forward, competent, honest and his prices are good. I can't say enough about him.

Description of Work
I have taken my car to him for the past 10 years.

I have been going to Arto for years, since even before he was AAA approved, and I send everyone I know with car troubles to him. He has always been available, reliable, on time, and when I got a first opinion from another garage b/c of time or location, I've never regretted taking my car to him for a second opinion and trustworthy affordable work. As a AAA member, I won't let my car get towed anyw...

Description of Work
I needed new tires for the season and Arto recommended I use an online retailer and have the tires sent to his shop where he put them on for me. This saved me much time as well as money.
