Charlie's Second Opinion

Don’t like a price or suggestion from another mechanic? Bring your car and the paperwork from the other shop. Our owner, Niko, will talk you through the estimate and make sure you understand the reason for the the repair recommendation.

After that, you can choose whomever you want to fix your car. We want you to feel comfortable with your auto maintenance, regardless of who you choose to perform it.

No Charge.

While you wait.
