I picked these guys to take my car to as they're authorized to do diagnostics for the emissions waiver (as of writing this), and based on overall positive reviews here on Yelp (thanks guys!)I took my car here after I failed the emissions test. When I first called and asked if they could do the requisite inspection (a min of $150 in diagnostics/repair), he told me they were scheduling 2 weeks out - I said I needed it to renew my registration (which I did!), and he worked me in the very next morning. Crack of dawn, but at least they're nearby.Guy that greeted me at the counter was very pleasant, personable, just overall friendly (in contrast the the guy apparently working there who was behind me on the street, honking at me as I tried to figure out where this place's driveway was. NEVER do that. You don't know when that person in front of you might be one of your customers! I speak from my experience as a pizza delivery driver many years ago. I mentioned it to the guy up front and he said he'd take care of it).I also asked if they could take a look at another issue my car was having - only if they had time, since they had already apparently squeezed me in and were expecting it to take all day.Well, had my car back before noon, AND they took a look at (and quoted me for) the other issue. He was happy to explain the other issue in more detail, and never made me feel like an idiot because cars aren't my thing (if anything, he seemed like a hobbyist being asked about his hobby). Same reasons for emissions failure as last time when I took it to another place. Charge was the requisite $150 in diagnostics, plus labor and tax, so total was about $170. Straightforward. I already knew what was wrong with it going in, and I'm really glad he didn't pressure me to get it fixed - he already understood the repairs are more than the car is worth. I appreciate that. (Bad enough broke students with old cars have to do this emissions dance - no need to rub in the fact we can't afford to fix the problems). I took it to Firestone last year and got the impression that I NEEDED to fix it, and my car was slowly dying. Though, I've driven it 2 years since then with almost no issues, so...Still taking my car into my regular mechanic (who isn't authorized to do the waiver thing, hence going here) for a second opinion/quote on the other issue - not that I don't trust Budd & Co - I've just been going to the other guy since I moved here.So yeah, A+++ if you need your emissions waiver. Fast, friendly, straightforward.
