2005-11-13 13:01:52   Comment R6 —JonPetruccelli - Integrity Auto Repair - Small auto shop I've been using since the summer. They seem honest and straightforward, and get things fixed in a timely fashion.

2005-11-20 10:29:50   Comment R7 —Ry - Schrader's - I have a professor who has been going to this guy for decades.

2005-12-16 16:37:00   Comment R9 —MikeThomas - I've been going to Vail for years now, they are trustworthy and friendly.

2005-12-19 02:39:09   Can anyone recommend a good muffler (exhaust system) shop? —TobinFricke

2005-12-20 15:12:20   Comment R13 —TobinFricke - Tom & Paul's Tire Trax Inc - Was recommended to me by RossHattori)

2006-08-13 20:41:21   Comment R18 —MaxPakhutkin - Vail Automotive - Had them inspect my car and replace worn out tires. Good service. They seem to be a little too small for the amount of business they get, so call in advance to find out about availability.

2006-08-14 21:26:53   Comment R20 —MrPhil - Veteran's Garage - Fast, friendly and efficient.

2006-12-12 23:16:32   Comment R26 —GirtsFolkmanis - Vail Automotive - I've only had good experience with them.

2007-01-22 15:14:04   does anyone know where can I find a place that does custom/modify works? suspension change dyno etc? —ChrisLee

2007-03-24 15:55:47   Comment R33 - —ChrisLauretano - Vogel's Collision - They're very nice until you call them for messing up their work. My car in in shambles and they keep giving me the run around. Post collision repairs need to made the car perfect, not sorta almost perfect. They left out a bunch of clips on underbody covers, misaligned the new front bumper, and the paint on my hood and bumper looks like they did it with a rattlecan. I know they are capable of decent work with the equipment they have, but I MUST say to avoid them at all costs as they are making my life a living hell right now. They think they can push me around because I'm only 21, but they're wrong.

2007-05-26 12:33:43   Comment R36 —TomNichols - UNeedA Tire Shop - Took me forever to find this place (b/c of the weird name) but they sell used tires by tread depth, starting at $20+. Great when you just need that car to pass inspection!

2007-07-12 15:20:23   It might be helpful to organize this page by town/suburb. —AlexanderGartley

2010-12-06 12:04:16   Does anyone have recommendations for a GOOD, RELIABLE shop that does remote starter installations for a reasonable price? I've read multiple, separate accounts — horror stories — from installations that went bad at Ziebart, Best Buy, and even the dealership (getting ripped off).
Thanks! —mychen
