NEVER trust these less than human so called "mechanics" with your car! Not only will they charge you WAY too much for not really fixing your car, but they will actually SCAM you!!! I took my car there to have a few small and simple things checked. I'm a female and they tried to use that to their advantage. They said I needed all this work done and they couldn't even give me an a real estimate. I asked them to explain what I needed done and why and they were very rude by telling me that I wouldn't really understand. I assertively told them that if I was going to pay for all this work that I wanted to know everything that would be done. They rudely went through the list. They told me hat I need a new power steering rack, a power steering pump, timing belt, air filter, oil change battery and etc, etc. Unfortunately for them, I ACTUALLY do know a lot about cars and probably more than their "expert" mechanics, but I take my cars to mechanic shops as I don't have tools and such. I let them know that I had just had an oil change, my air filter is a cleanable, reuseable aftermark brand, and my power steering pump and rack was replaced not too long ago by the dealer. The timing belt and a few other things probably needed to be replaced, but knowing that they were trying to SCAM me and take advantage of me, I let them know that I was taking my car and money somewhere else and that I would never be back.

Took 1st car in --- did good job. Took another car in for ac work--- told what was wrong and the price. I allowed them to fix, picked it up and paid---worked ok for 1 day. Called back and was told they couldn't be "married" to a car as old and could not be responsible for the ac not working the next day. Asked to speak with Mike----who promptly double talked more excuses in 5 minutes than the average person could think of in a lifetime. Bottom line---- did not and would not either fix the car or refund the money paid. I will never use this place again and will share my experiences with anyone who will listen. CAVEAT EMPTOR! These people showed me they will NOT stand by their work .

Brought my car in for repairs to these grease monkeys and i was told that my car would be ready on a certain time and date for the minor repairs that were to be performed. To make a long story short, my car was in the shop for 2 extra days, charged 800 dollars and my car still had the same issues as when I brought it in originally. I didn't notice the problem until I had left, paid and driven it on the highway. I returned and the whitetrash mechanic got in an argument with me over it in the parking lot. The owner didn't want to come out because he has nothing b/t his legs! Never go to this place, the worst mechanic shop in Gerogia!

I took my car in for a new battery. They called me at work to tell me it was bad. They charged me $42 just to have it checked, on top of $80 for the battery. Btw I called around after the fact and other places do not charge to test a battery. They failed to mention they were charging me to test.

Mike the Mechanic and crew are the best in town. Not only are they friendly and courteous, but they actually explain and are willing to show you the problem with your vehicle. Imagine that...an honest mechanic. Their prices are extremely competitive on every type of service that my vehicle has required. From a simple oil change to a transmission rebuild, these folks are top notch. You can't put a price on peace of mind knowing your vehicle was fixed right the FIRST time!

I had some issues before and wrote about them here, but now I am coming back and re-writing my review. I went and talked to Mike about what was bothering me and he offered what I felt was a very fair and generous resolution. I will repost when I finally take Mike up on what was offered and post yet another final comment on M the M. At this point I feel very good about this company and would recommend- believing my troubles were just misunderstandings and again, Mike was great in working with me on what appears to me to be a very fair and reasonable resolution. He and his team seem very nice, competent and desirous to do a job well done. On a side note, my friend had his 1990? honda accord wagon worked on @ Mike's and is still raving months later that it is running like never before and getting fantastic gas milage. So...go Mike!

Mike the Mechanic recently opened a new location on Toonigh. Ever time I pass his business; the parking lot is full of cars waiting their turn on the lift. I think Mike is a great fit for our area. There was not a reputable repair shop near my home. He offers prompt service at a reasonable price. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MIKE on Toonigh.

I took my Mercury Sable to Mike The Mechanic and was blown away by the service and professionalism. I actually met Mike! This guy is what you want for your service needs. I had my car towed there and left him a word document about the problems with the car. The next day he gave me a great price for all the work and did a courtesy safety check. I've never left a review for a mechanic before. Trust me, take your cars, suv's to Mike.
