If you are a cynic like me, you think that the existence of an honest mechanic is about as likely as a Bigfoot sighting or a personal encounter with a Yeti. After Midas at Newport told me that I needed a new rack and pinion assembly AND a new power steering pump for $1325, I called three different mechanics who not only told me such a verdict was unlikely to say the least but seriously overpriced as well. Konen made the best impression so I took my car in to Rob for a second opinion. It turned out that only a part of the rack and pinion assembly needed to be replaced. I left Konen saving $885! The classic hook I thought expecting that the next time I would be paying through the nose. Not so! I had my badly broken wheel bearing assembly fixed at an extremely reasonable price. (Trust me, I checked.) My car now drives better than when I first bought it. The third time I went by I took the time to get to know the gang at Konen's Pitt Stop. They are all extremely likable fellows and not in a used-car-salesman kind of way if you know what I mean. At visit #3, Mark &Co now knew who I was and greeted me with a smile and by name. I had a regular oil change. Miraculously. I am now getting better fuel mileage. That is the first time that ever happened! I do not know much about cars so mechanics like Midas tend to think that they can defraud me with ease. But the truth is that I know competence when I see it and Konen has it. I am now convinced that I found my very own personal Yeti: a reasonably priced mechanic with integrity. Check it out!
