Great guys!!! They showed up on time and were very reasonable with the price
Worked for me.
My son's car broke down late at night in the middle of a dark road. He was fortunate that Nick happened along and stopped to help. He was able to identify that the alternator belt had broken and was able to jump it so that my son could make the short drive home. He agreed to come by the next morning with the belt and to fix it.
He showed up when he said he would and with the part and had it fixed in less than 15 minutes. He charged only for the work he did to replace the belt, not for the good Samaritan help he provided the night before.
I was definitely satisfied with his work and was very appreciative that he stopped to assist my son.
Tragic & Loathsome.
Horrible. They were unable to properly diagnose my car, and the work that was done was sloppy and without attention to detail. I haven't decided if they're trying to work their clients over, or are really that empty-headed.
Link will be nice enough until there is a problem; be aware of screened phone calls and evasive behavior. Their initial quote was inexpensive compared to others and it was a bonus that they came to my house, but it was definitely not worth it.
GO SOMEWHERE ELSE AND FIND ANOTHER MECHANIC.
My car was chronically overheating, and T&L came to my apartment to look at it. I did some research beforehand and had a list of things that might be the problem. At the top of the list: a blown head gasket. "No, no, no. You don't have white exhaust, it's not a blown head gasket." So we move on.
First diagnostic: water pump. I knew it was time to change the timing belt and seals, so I asked him to do that as well while he was in there. I asked him to save the old water pump, since I had only replaced it less than a year before, and my prior garage said they'd work with me to get a refund from the manufacturer. When he returned the car the next day, somehow the water pump was missing and someone "must've thrown it out." I asked him if it's time to start thinking about selling it, and he told me, "Nah, it's a quiet engine, and runs well. You can easily get another 100,000 miles out of it." (I had 150,000).
Getting a hold of him was a nightmare. He didn't answer his phone, and didn't call back. I had to show up at his house and wait for him for 2 hours to get him to look at my car. How professional.
Since I kept having the same symptoms, his 3-month warranty kept me reluctantly coming back to check if it was parts or labor, and of course it never was. A water pump, timing belt, oil pump, radiator, radiator hose, extra coolant flush, valve gasket, end plugs, and a timing belt pulley later, I still have the same problem with my car, except now I'm out $1200.
Since he clearly couldn't diagnose the problem, I went to the Toyota dealership to pay them to do it. The mechanic showed me all of the (quote) "shoddy workmanship" on the car: the timing belt cover was loose and wasn't fastened properly, the wiring was routed improperly where loose wires were exposed to possible leaks of fluids, they forgot to plug in the lead wire that runs to the radiator fan motor, and the pulley that I paid to fix became shredded because he failed to tighten it properly when he changed the timing belt.
The last time he looked at my car, his last guess was that it was electrical. I now have white exhaust which is the tell-tale sign of....(wait for it)....a blown head gasket!
Moral of the story: You ALWAYS get what you pay for. A low price for car repairs translates to a bad diagnosis made by a mechanic who's a moron. Don't throw parts at a car. Go somewhere else.
