Our industry leading, complimentary 57-Point Signature Inspection, is performed with every service and a report emailed complete with pictures, videos, and ironclad prices. Are you tired of taking your car in for a repair and then having to take it back the next day because it appears to have the same issue? Feel like they guessed at what it would take to fix your car and guessed wrong? Did you have one part replaced and it didn’t fix your car so you authorize another part and it also doesn’t fix your concern? I always felt if your first guess wasn’t good enough to fix a car then; why would you take a second guess?
It is a fact that if your car was not fixed the first time that a training, tooling or information system deficiency exists in the repair process. Even as far technology has advanced in the modern automobile, it is still far from rocket science; competent, well trained and well tooled shops simply don’t struggle to fix cars.
At Pete’s Garage we approach car repair scientifically, we use training, tooling and information systems just like the manufacturer dealers use. Some shops lack the tooling and education so they guess at what your car needs because maybe they had a similar car in before that had a similar problem. Sometimes they get lucky and do fix your car but more often than not they have to ‘fix it twice’ or even more than that. We do not rely on guesswork, silver bullets or phone/internet consultants, we rely on being very well trained and very well tooled on a narrow group of manufacturer’s cars.

Pete is the most thorough and knowledgeable mechanic I’ve ever known. He loves to solve problems and always takes the time to explain the issue and resolution in detail.
First time they worked on my car, they did a complete diagnostic and sent me a document including pictures, details, recommendations, and severity level of each item noted. We did the most critical safety issues first, and over the past two years, most of the other items on the list. I highly recommend Pete’s Garage!

The owner of a vehicle we were considering buying suggested we call Pete's Garage for information on the diesel engine's issues. It was immediately clear that we wouldn't be interested in buying the bus, but the guy I talked to was super friendly and gave me ten minutes of advice on what type of vehicle and engine would be best suited to our needs. I wouldn't hesitate to take my vehicle to this shop.
