I love this place! Years ago they replaced my brake pads, and I have had enjoyable visits to Harry's and to the property for my smog check as well, so I came back to the a few weeks ago — and again was very happy with the result.
Actually, although my gut was to go directly to Harry's when my brakes suddenly seemed to be failing, but instead I went to AAMCO. I actually did the online chat with AAMCO first, then came in and waited 3 hours for my turn. The result: the guy didn't want to work on my car. It needed a master cylinder and the guy in charge at the Melrose AAMCO simply said he didn't want to work on it. Never mind that I was scared to drive with brakes going so low. He sent me on my way. I can't say for sure but I think it was because he wanted the easy brake pad jobs, not this, plus my car was getting older so I was trying to decide how to deal with that.
I went straight to the shop where I knew I'd be treated in a friendly way, with respect. The guys there spent time with me, helping me know my options. He called for a parts price and gave me the pricing and I knew he was being very fair. He said he could do it right away. Then they allowed me to make some calls, get opinions, and reach a decision. I decided to have the master cylinder replaced. I took a short walk to Jon's market and food shopped, then dropped that food at the car as they worked. Another quick walk to Target (to get Hershey's Kisses as a thank you gift for the mechanics) and when I came back they were nearly done. One thing I love is that there is a lot to do while you're waiting.
Harry's is a busy place. Cars are always coming in and going out. The workers have always been nice when I've been there (about 5 times). I also pass by when I walk to local stores. I always get a good feeling there — and I am happy to bring them business and to recommend them.
These guys are honest and extremely competent at what they do. They do great mechanical, as well as body and paint work. Two thumbs up!
Friendly, honest service! I was extremely pleased with the work they did on my car. I'll definitely go back to them in the future. Thanks Harrys and Chris ^^
