    Subject:  Re: ISO: honest mechanic - THANK YOU (and a shout-out)!
    Comment:  Just wanted to thank everyone for their mechanic recommendations! After reading them all over and checking a ton of Yelp reviews, we ended up going with Superior Care Auto on 19th Street for some repairs, and I'm happy to say we're very satisfied customers. Superior will be getting our business from now on!We'd previously gotten an insane estimate at Pep Boys for a long list of things they claimed needed to be done to our car to keep it safe (discovered at a routine inspection); Superior gave us a very honest second opinion, which was that only one of the issues needed work, and it was just a suggestion for the general maintenance of the car, not a safety issue (even considering we're a family with a young kid and another on the way!). The work they recommended was HALF the cost Pep Boys was quoting.Superior really took the time to talk over details with us; they were patient and didn't pressure us, but gave us so much helpful info. They're a good, solid family-run business and it shows-- it's clear they really care about their customers. Service was quick, thorough, and fairly priced. One downside is that you need to make an appointment ahead of time instead of just showing up, but we got one within a couple days of calling.I'm recommending this place to everyone I know!(Recommended April 2015)

    Comment:  I usually use Mitchell's Auto Repair on 39th Street. People love him, as do I (http://www.cartalk.com/mechanics-files/mechanic/ny/brooklyn/mitchells-auto-repair). In a pinch, I once went to Superior Auto Repair. They quoted me a price for replacing some break pads that was 3-4 times higher than what Mitchell ultimately charged me.

    Comment:  We went there just last month, and they were great as always! A few days later, a friend of mine happened to start talking about how much he loves his mechanic, and I was about to get defensive about Superior Care being the best, then realized that's who he was talking about, too.

    Comment:  I've been really happy with Frankie at Superior Care on 19th St. near 3rd Ave. He explains things well, helps you decide what needs fixing and what can wait, and is generally a pleasure to deal with.

    Comment:  I second Superior Care! I've been going to them for nearly 15 years and I've been through four different cars during that time. With my last car, an SUV they actually encouraged me to get rid of it rather than put more money in it as they could tell the engine was going to go at some point in the near future. I loved that truck and it still looked good, was the nicest vehicle I had ever had up till that point. But....I certainly didn't need to replace an engine!

    Comment:  Superior Auto Care is the best! They know and love cars like no one else. I trust them completely. They've even told me that I DIDN'T need to replace my brakes when another mechanic had told me they were "paper thin (a lie)."

    Comment:  I have been more than happy with the service Superior Care Auto Center on 3 ave and 19th st. I have to say, my only complaint is the detail with which they describe the situation with my car, it all goes over my head and I just want to know if they can fix the problem or not. Great guys!

    Comment:  My family has used Superior Care for over 15 years (back when it was Pro Care on 16th Street). We have always highly trusted and recommended Frankie and Dom to all people.I highly second the recommendation!!!!I will not claim they are the cheapest. They are reasonable, and you know the work in quality and they do not convince you to do things that are not necessary. (ex: last summer before going on a road trip I had my car checked out. They gave me a list of things that should be done in the near future, but they also let me know exactly what HAD to be done before taking the car away for a month, like the brakes, and they did not pressure me to do the other stuff.)They do not do body work, but work with a guy nearby (MB Collision) who does do body work.(may, 2010)

    Comment:  Based on the recommendations on PSP, I took my car to Superior to be inspected this morning. These guys are just great. I arrived with kid in tow, in a rush to get to school on time. They were so kind, could see that I was a bit frazzled, so they took the car and parked if for me so I wouldn't have to worry. When I picked it up (exactly when they said it would be ready) they told me the car was in great shape and didn't need anything else done. In the past, other places have attempted to sell me a bunch of additional usually expensive services. I am particularly aware of this as in the past I have gotten the condescending "women know nothing about cars - we know what's best for you" attitude. These guys were just honest and genuinely nice! I can't recommend them enough. Yay for local business!(May, 2010)

    Comment:  I highly recommend Superior! They helped me out in a jam with my NYS inspection sticker, which was about to expire because I inadvertently left it to the last minute. They were able to squeeze me in right away and made waiting with two kids in tow bearable (it was raining, so we had to wait inside). They were efficient and friendly, plus they gave me a 10% discount for being a PSP member. They'll even email me a reminder for next year's inspection.(Recommended 2/10)
