Kept my 2001 Toyota Prius hybrid on the road
As the 2nd owner of a great little hybrid, I wasn't happy when the electric battery died last September. After a recommendation from an out-of-town prius repair expert and phone conversations with Fred, I had the car towed from the all-or-nothing, impersonal dealership to ToyoTechs in Chamblee. Fred was open to discovering the nuances of the hybrid mechanics and even purchased specialized safety equipment to handle the battery components. During the long wait for replacement parts from Toyota, Fred and Jennie even lent their car, saving me hundreds of dollars in rental fees. Since the replacement of the battery and ecu the car is running better than ever, getting upwards of 43 miles to the gallon. It's always pleasant there, within walking distance of food, shopping, library and marta. A computer with internet is available to customers. The personalized service and recognition from everyone who works there makes it worth the drive even for a standard oil change. And the aaa discount doesn't hurt either.
