My car is over 10 years old, and finally getting to that age where it needs tender loving care. It developed this odd shimmy that my former mechanic couldn't diagnose - I'd describe it, and he'd shrug his shoulders. Then the car pooped out on the way to SF on a rainy night - I was at the mercy of a Fairfield dealer, who not only misdiagnosed the problem, but took several weeks to fix the misdiagnosed problem, only for me to make it back to Sac and have the same problem occur, and at a premium price. A friend suggested that I find someone who only works on Subarus - and I figured the name of this shop would ensure that. Joe was in my car less than 30 seconds, diagnosed the problem correctly, and took my car in and fixed it right away. Since then, the car gets it's service exclusively here - his mechanics are all friendly and polite, and when they say the car will be ready, it's ready; and I feel like I can trust them implicitly. AND - they give me a ride downtown whenever I'm in for service. My next car may have to be a subaru, just so I can keep taking it here.
