I had a 1994 Toyota 4Runner in need of repair. It was constantly running hot and I couldn't take it anywhere without carrying a jug of water with me. I didn't have much money so I kept putting having it repaired off. Finally, I broke down and called Nick. I took it to him and got a sense that he was indeed an honest man, hard to find now days in the mechanic field. Not only is he honest, but he knows a heck of a lot about cars. He worked as a mechanic for Toyota until he got fed up with their underhanded practices about lying to people about what they needed for their cars. I'm not saying all Toyotas places are like that, but the one Nick worked at did. So he quit and went to work for himself. He ended up having to replace my radiator and a few other things. It ran great after that and I felt he gave me a very fair price. After that, with my SUV being so old, I kept having to take it back for other various repairs. The last time I drove that SUV was when I took my ex husband to the airport. He was moving to San Francisco. On the way back, my SUV broke down. Nick had someone tow it to his shop. I forgot what it was this time but he repaired it. When pulling out of his shop, my brake line broke. This was the end of my beloved 4Runner. Nick was in the process of re constructing the brake line when he told me it was best if I sell it because it was starting to be one thing after another. I took his advice. Nick let me keep my truck at his shop until it sold. He also lent me a car he had that he occasionally lent out to customers so I could get back and forth to work. My truck finally sold. I will be forever grateful to Nick and all he did to help me. I have a new car now, but I know if I ever need any work done, he's the one I want working on my car. Thank you Nick for all that you did to help me. I will always be grateful!!

Finally got towed home about 10:30. Went online and found Nick's Wrenches this morning. Nick gave me some pointers on what to look for before I had to spend any money (wasn't sure it was the alternator at that point). Finally was able to crank the car, but it wouldn't stay on, so Nick came to my house and fixed it in about an hour. He also checked other things on the engine and tweaked them for me, and told me about one thing that would need to be taken care of shortly that would cost me about $5 and I could do myself. Very thorough and pleasant and price was below the competition. Thanks, Nick. Will put you as a recommendation on my subdivision's web site, too.
