Keith became a fast friend, years ago when he fixed our car for 15.00 bucks after we had been quoted over a thousand dollars by a thieving competitor. He will fix it right the first time (if you'll allow it) but also has an understanding of costs so the choice will be yours to make. Many times and many cars later he will always tell me what NEEDS to happen as well as what we can do to scrape by for a bit. Let's face it, we arent always financially prepared for a big ticket fix and he gets that. I'm leaving the state now and truly wish I could take him with me. Not sure how I'll ever find another mechanic that I trust as much.
