Having just moved to Tulsa from California I needed to find a reliable, professional, honest, knowledgeable and reasonably priced auto repair shop. Pretty tall order, huh? Well, after doing some extensive internet research and interviewing several shops, I chose VAPAuto SHop to diagnose and correct a persistent problem I had been having on my PT Cruiser. The small family owner,super clean facility near the Broken Arrow/ I-44 interchange has a comfortable waiting room or they are willing to shuttle you elsewhere, if need be .Everyone was very pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable from the owner Travis,Service Manager Jerry to Jeff the mechanic. There are lots of plaques on the walls indicating extensive training and they have a sophisticated computer to assis with diagnosing issues. They did just that, diagnosed the problem pronto and thankfully all it turned out to be was needing a old fashioned tune up. Ruby was ready to be picked up in a day and they even came to my home to get me! Also they provide internet shop account access, an interesting feature I hadn't even seen of in CA. Costs? Well, I am sure there are plenty of cheaper shops out there as this repair cost about $400 but I have not had any further sputtering,engine failure or problems since.They did just what I asked them to do and fixed the problem,even at $80 an hour for a mechanic. Diagnosing a automobiles' problem is an art and can be tricky,finding a shop that you sense is honest and dependable is a joy.
