September 2015- EC is a good guy. I have been using him for about 15 years with at least 6 different cars. In those years what I have valued most is his willingness to look at my perspective. If I tell him I cannot afford A,B,C&D he is willing to sit down and help me prioritize the repairs or decided if I need a new car. I also found him to be very honest. I recently took my car in for a new AC compressor. It had all the tail tail signs. I saved up the money, dropped of the vehicle and green lighted him for the AC repair. He calls me a few hours later and tells me the AC compressor was good, but instead I had a bad seal. He could have easily taken my money for the full job, but saved me hundreds of dollars and sure enough the AC has blown cold all summer long.
Something else cool is his per-purchase check ups. Yes, I know I sound like a commercial now. But he saved me from buying a few pieces of junk. Or in his words, If you buy this car one of my mechanics will retire on the work to repair it. On the other hand I was buying a truck at a steal of a price and he told me, yes the clutch is shot and the engine needs a major tune up. He gave me the estimates for both repairs. EC told me for that price plus the repairs you’ll have a great bargain. I bought the truck, drove it straight to EC for the repairs and between the bargain price and EC’s repairs I got 10 years of work out of that truck and if it wasn’t for EC I’d have passed on a great bargain.
