I've had several family cars which I have brought to Pat's over past 15 years or so. Pat's has always serviced my cars cars well whether I was there for basic service or the big repairs. Some past work has been costly but before doing that I get a call with explanation of needed repairs, cost and suggestions on what to do now and what can wait if I wanted to break cost up. I'm the type who likes to get it all done but if not in the budget I know I can trust their judgment on what could wait.
Yesterday I picked up my 10 year old Suburu which had only needed routine maintainance and to my surprise they had patched a tire in my trunk and put it back on getting me off the little spare. Additionally they did a little something to a dent by my driver's side door which was making it hard to open and close door. Dent didn't disappear - hey it's not a body shop - but a problem was unexpectedly addressed and my life just improved. Thank you Pat's Garage!!
