When I dropped the car off at the mechanic's I noticed he has a real neat and clean looking garage and house. Garage was closed but his yard was immaculate with nice signage for his garage.
Seeing the garage made me feel good about the mechanic who would work inside. The mechanic is the father of the guy who has done a lot of work on the property that we currently rent, and he is a genuinely nice guy and does good quality work. Hopefully this is a trait he picked up from his father.
Verdict from the mechanic is....
- timing belt
- water pump
- valve adjustment
He says for now that is the only major stuff. Other good news that to do all of the above he said it would be $225.
That seems really good to me, what do you guys think?
Said the brakes, clutch, suspension, bushing etc. all look good.
