reviewiconGreat Guys!
Iowa City, IA

Pat and Dave are the auto mechanics everyone wants: In addition to being great guys, they tell you exactly what the issues are, how much repairs would cost, whether the repair is necessary or something a driver can live with, and whether it's worth making repairs at all. I've been taking all our vehicles to them for 10 years and have always been satisfied. The location is also convenient if one works at the University of Downtown Iowa City, as it is a leisurely 15 minute walk away.
