average mechanic, 9/20/2013

Took my vehicle to Fred a few times.Ok mechanic but he seems to have a chip on his shoulder. He needs to work on his people skills (very moody).


Fred is honest!, 7/02/2012

Before my husband passed away, he went to many auto repair shops. Often he would be told he needed something repaired, but when he went to someone else, they said he did NOT need the repair. In his... younger days he could do most of the repairs himself. He was a "car guy". After he started taking our cars to Fred, he never went anywhere else. Fred NEVER overcharged us or did unnecessary repairs. My husband told me that Fred is HONEST. Now that I am a widow I need someone I can trust to inspect and repair my car. I wouldn't go to anyone else.

Quality work for a good price

I take my families cars there and always refer friends that are looking for a mechanic. You get a quality work for a great price. When it's fixed it's fixed. I don't go back to keep getting something fixed. If it doesn't need fixed, Fred doesn't tell me to fix it. He knows how to diagnose problems and fixes it right the first time for a price that beats the other local shops and dealers. I'll keep going back and referring him to anyone that asks.

Great service - Fair Prices!

We have only good things to say about Fred's work and his business. My husband has an older foreign car and Fred still gets us the best prices on hard to find parts. I'd refer him to anyone I know. He gets us in, stays on schedule and does great work. Nice job Fred!

I wouldn't go anyplace else!

I have been going to Fred's for sometime now and just invited family to take advantage of the excellent service, great prices and friendly workers. Fred's offers quick and dependable service with no "beating around the bush" descriptions to problems. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

Great Service and Great Advice

I always take my family's cars to Fred's for everything from routine maintenance to problems that need to be addressed. I always receive quick service. Not only that, I received valuable pieces of advice from Fred on how to avoid similar problems in the future. Fred is dependable and reasonably priced.

Great Mechanic!!

We started going to Fred a couple of years ago on the recommendation of a close friend (both she and her father have used Fred's Auto Service for some time and have been more than pleased with his work). He has always been extremely honest and fair with what we've needed for our aging vehicle. He's been very forthcoming with information to answer any questions that we've had and his work has been super. He never suggested anything more than what really needed to be done & helped us to get the best deal possible on the parts that we needed. We've used his shop for tires as well as regular repairs, and plan on doing so for years to come.

Honest, Fair, Great Mechanic

My immediate and extended family as well as numerous friends use Fred as our mechanic b/c he is an honest, fair, reasonable mechanic that we can rely on to diagnose the problem and fix it. We also use him for all of our inspections and oil changes. My husband and I live a half hour from Fred now, but still come back to Fred because we are certain that he will treat us and our car right. He answers our questions, provides options and never pushes us into repairs that can wait. We really appreciate him and that he will fit us in when it works for him and us. In one instance we had our leased car into the dealer while we were looking at new cars. They offered to change the oil on our lease for free while we waited. Well, low and behold, our car needed brakes and tires or so they said. We thanked them for the oil change and took the car and dropped it off to Fred to fix the next day and get the new tires and brakes that we were told we needed. He called us the next day and told us that we did not need either right now. He said that we did not need tires now or in the immeidate future and that we could go 4-5 months before we needed new brakes. Wow! He could have just fixed them, charged us and we would have been none the wiser, but that's not Fred or how he runs his business. We saved the money and 5 months later we got our brakes done by Fred. We have complete piece of mind with Fred and wish there were more small busines owners like him around.

Worst Mechanic Ever

This guy Fred has absolutely horrible people skills. When asking for a reasonable explanation as to what is wrong with my car, he could not give me an answer. I am still at a loss as to what he did to deserve what he charged me! In fact, my car runs worse than before I took it to him. And to top it off, the overhead clock does not display. To get it to work, you have to tap it?!?!? I have taken many cars to many mechanics over the years but have NEVER run in to such a lemon! DO NOT GO HERE!
