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.

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.
