We are new to the area and needed some work done to our truck, heard good things about Mikey’s and I’m glad we took a chance. Great customer service and work. They called and quoted us before doing any work in a timely manner. The truck runs great now and we will definitely be using them again. Thank you for the great service and experience!

I followed my neighbor down to Mikey’s today to have a suspected radiator leak checked out on her husband’s Jeep. Mikey came out, checked the engine and said it wasn’t the radiator but the air conditioner had leaked some fluid (due to the color of the fluid). He did an inspection in the parking lot of the engine, AC, and lines and determined it was an over-pressure release from the AC and most likely a one time occurence. He recommended doing nothing at this time and to monitor the AC performance and/or a repeat of the one-time leak. He said why pay to search for a cause that appears to be a one time fault (most likely due to a very hot day and that the winch on the front of the Jeep may be blocking sufficient air-flow to cool the engine and AC components).
Other mechanic shops would have had you leave the vehicle for days and then hundreds of dollars later, say they fixed it, without really doing a thing.

Mikey was very honest, professional, and a pleasure to do business with. He explained it all in understandable terms to my neighbor and she left very happy.

Although it was not my vehicle that was being checked, I think I have found a First Rate shop to send my cars to. Good Job! I’ll be sending people your way as well as myself.
