H-MechanicsName = Mike Horner I-MakeOfCar = Toyota Corolla J-WorkPerformed = Clutch, ignition coil, oil leak K-Kudos = Looking for an HONEST, reliable, reasonable, ASC certified mechanic in the Riverside Ca. area? I highly recommend Mike Horner ph# (909) 687-6749. He is honest, reliable and does excellent work. When the coil went out on my car it took Goodyear and the Dealer, 4 days to identify and repair the problem. Both tried to sell me unnecessary services and the Dealer insisted I needed new spark plug wires, spark plugs, even though I had just replaced them 2 months prior. The dealer also insisted I shouldn't be using platinum spark plugs which may have contributed to the problem. - I found out later my Toyota manual calls for platinum plugs! Anyway, when my car died a second time, I was ripped off for a new muffler before I learned the muffler had nothing to do with the car stalling out. I called Mike Horner, he diagnosed the problem within 5 minutes - it was the ignition coil again. If you're in the Riverside Ca. area I strongly recommend Mike Horner (909) 687-5092. GOOD LUCK! Lisa

And the thing I like about them is they are honest if he feels he can't find the problem for some reason he let's you know so you know where you stand when it comes time to pay the bill. I have had things fixed before and maybe something else would go wrong related to it, and never be charged for having to take it back. The key here is if you want someone to do it right, and more so if you want someone who's honest (which garages our well known for this) try Mr. Howell out I don't think you will be disapointed. Larry Dodson K-Kudos = The Key here is he might charge as much to do the work as most shops but what needs fixed is the only thing that get's fixed. Doesn't charge for anything that's doen't need working on. You can trust him, and have talked to many other's who have took there auto's to him and they have said the same thing. All I can say is try him out and I think he'll when you over, not a nicer guy around. The best I've found.

(I drive old clunkers.) K-Kudos = Robert (don't call him Bob!) is a perfectionist. He will explain EXACTLY what needs to be done, until he is CERTAIN you understand it. He will explain what can be put off until later and how to recognize when it's time for that. He charges $68/hour (less than the average $74/hour in Santa Cruz) and consistently takes less time to do the job than the California State's book sets as the amount of time allowed for each repair, so your labor costs are minimized. He charges around 20% less for parts than most other repair shops (and WAY LESS than dealers) in the Monterey Bay area. He is adamant about getting your satisfaction with his work. Of more than 40 mechanics I've had work on my cars through 45 years in Texas, Colorado, Ohio, and California, he is far and away the most conscientious and the best. I couldn't recommend him more highly.
