A penguin was driving through Arizona one day and noticed his car acting strange. Not wanting to chance being stranded in the desert, the penguin pulled into the next town and stopped at the first garage he could find. The mechanic told him he would give it a look and for the penguins to come back in exactly one hour. The penguin started waddling through town and found an ice cream shop. Ice cream sounded good in the 110 degree weather. He went in, hopped up on a stool, and ordered a big bowl of vanilla ice cream. The server offered him a spoon but not having opposable thumbs he elected to just lap it all up using his flippers. This made quite a mess but more importantly took a long time. An hour went by quickly so he hurried back to the garage. When he made it back to the garage the mechanic was still under the hood. The penguin asked, "so what do you think is wrong?" Mechanic looked at him and said, "Well, it looks like you blew a seal" to which the penguin replied, "No, no, no, it is just vanilla ice cream."

David Matthew Herron — 5 star Great service. My family has been with Brian and the car shop for years and they have always taken care of us. Today I had a car issue that at any other place they would have taken days to diagnose then days more to fix. He had me done the same day. Great service!! If your looking for a good mechanic who takes care of his customers this is the place!

We are starting a new program! A trivia game. I will ask a trivia question on Wednesday mornings. The first five people that get the right answer will get a FREE lube/oil/filter. Everyone that answers the question right will be put into a drawing to win a Lifetime oil change certificate!! The drawing will be held every 2 months.

“Wow. After three mechanics, I finally found one that knew what he was doing! Wow. We had this starting problem that we could not get fixed, but sure spent a ton of money letting pseudo-mechanics try! After three crank shaft sensors, a new computer, a new wiring harness, new ignition, and bills that eventually cost more than the kbb value of the car, we took the advice of temple terrace view and went to Brian. In two hours they found the real culprit, another two hours fixed it, and the problem was solved! Too boot, it cost less than $180! Folks, an honest mechanic is one f the most important things an adult can have in their go to telephone numbers, and we found ours! Thanks Brian.”
