"The guys here see great! Clean shop and clean waiting room, pleasant enough for a short wait like an oil change. 
If you've got a bigger problem with your car, they can drop you off and pick you up when your car is ready or you can see if they have a loaner car available. 
Needed to get the lower ball joint replaced on my car, which was discovered on a routine oil change over at Merlin's. SJM had a much better price for the big job and had a loaner available too so I could get to work that day. 
Haven't taken my car anyplace else for car maintenance and repair - SJM is great! 
(A little hard to find, as their sign out front isn't very big, but Google Maps can find it and so can I!)"
