Does this sound familiar? Something breaks in your car, or you're way behind with the maintenance, and immediately you begin to stress out thinking how much it's going to cost, and more importantly, where the hell you should take your ride where you won't get ripped off? Well, this was me a few days ago, and because in the past I was fortunate enough to change cars every 3 years or so, I never had the need to search for a good mechanic. I needed a bunch of work done, and so I initially took my Accord to the local Honda dealership just to get a ballpark figure of what they would charge for the repairs I needed, along with the maintenance items. Nothing could have prepared me for the phone call I received a few hours after they had a chance to look at it, as their "estimate" was more like a down payment on a new home. I immediately went and retrieved my car and gave the inevitable thanks but no thanks when they asked for my business. After some research on the old Inter-Webs, I was lucky enough to find Mike here at Autoworks of Brandon. Even after just talking with him for a few minutes, I could tell he was the man for the job, but of course I still held my breath while awaiting his estimates. All of the stress went away when he sent me the entire write up electronically (pretty cool by the way), as his pricing was literally a third of what ripoff Honda wanted. That, and his overall professionalism (along with a shout-out to Lina at the front desk), have sold me as my new go-to mechanic. Friendly doesn't begin to describe these folks, and all I can say is, you'd be foolish to bring your car anywhere else. Truly one of the best experiences I've ever had with a business, bar none.
