Recommended Auto Repair shop in Metro West Boston

As we prepare to say our final farewells to the Boston suburbs, I'd like to recognize and recommend some businesses that we've come to appreciate over the last 8 years.  The one that I will miss the most is our mechanic, Pat at Sudbury Automotive in Sudbury, MA.

It's hard to find a mechanic that you trust - if you know enough about cars to make a truly informed decision, you might not need a mechanic at all.  Pat has consistently earned our trust by telling us that something doesn't need to be fixed, or might be fixed at a dealer under warranty.  Not just once or twice, but repeatedly, over almost a decade.  When something does needs fixing, what he fixes stays fixed.

If you're looking for a good, trustworthy auto repair shop in the western Boston 'burbs, you won't do better than pat.  We'll miss him when we're down in Atlanta, because I'll have to find someone else I trust as much.  I hope we do, but I fear that we won't.

Highly, highly recommended.

Sudbury Automotive
249 Boston Post Rd (Route 20)
Sudbury, MA 01776
(978) 443-7374

Full disclosure: I get no consideration of any kind for this recommendation; indeed, Pat doesn't have any idea that I'm doing it.  But he's done well by us, and if you need this sort of thing, he'll do well by you.  Tell him you saw this here, and that I appreciate how he took care of our red Volvo convertable.

A good mechanic that you trust is a comfort indeed. Even when you know enough about cars and trucks to manage to stumble through lots of things yourself. I miss our old mechanic who retired.... sure makes trips to the garage for repairs outside my skill level more stressful.

I've used the same auto mechanic in Atlanta since 1973 or so. As you describe your Boston mechanic, he's honest, reasonably priced, and an all-around good guy. He's in Emory Village, across from the main gate of Emory University at the corner of Oxford and North Decatur Roads (BEWARE -- these two streets cross again two blocks away in a residential area!). He is Jimmy Parsons, the shop is Emory Chevron, his number is 404-373-7400. He only does engine work and some maintenance, he no longer does body work. If you are settling in northeast Atlanta his shop could be quite convenient. If, instead, you're moving to Marietta or Conyers or Smyrna, keep looking...

Tony, your guy sounds like just the sort of shop I'm looking for. Unfortunately, we're moving to Roswell, so it looks like it would be a real hike.
