3 check-ins My alternator broke for the second time in a year! The first time I got it fixed was at a mechanic in North Hills. Obviously not a job well done, otherwise it wouldn't have broken down again 7 months later. I was upset because I paid the man $650 to get it fixed and really didn't wanna dish out another $650. A friend referred me to Rick's Automotive to get it looked at. I spoke to Rick on the phone and he gave me a very reasonable quote, he even waited for me to come with my car after the shop was already closed. To make a long story short.... It was a job well done, plus the price was reasonable too. Since then, I've been taking my cars to him for all mechanical needs =) You definitely won't be disappointed with his services.
