    The auto place I've used for the past 4 years has just fallen out of my favor. Does anyone have a place they could recommend?

    We have discovered the Express Lube & Car Wash in Sterling http://potomacfallsexpresslube.com/ recently. 2 cars have been there and we are very happy with them.

    So, first reason I went there is because I got to know the owner thru all the green events she has been and how dedicated they are to be eco-friendly. I also found out that her main mechanic in the shop is really good. Fixed up our son's old car and saved us a whole lot by pointing out and fixing what's wrong exactly that needed it to be fixed asap. The car failed the inspection and half the items on the list didn't even need a fix to pass it after we took the car for a repair and went to another place for the test.

    Troy, the mechanic gave our son a tour of the engine, under the hood and all the other quick guide about how to keep the car running without a major cost.

    So, we are very happy with that type of service.

    ++++1 for Fallon. By far the most honest, best-priced in the area...

    Ok, that seems pretty decisive. Guess I'll be giving Fallon a call. Thanks neighbors!

    I've had terrible luck at vatire. I avoid it like the nobodies business. I might consider them for tire air but that's about it. Even then they may try and charge me for it.

    They oversell. Look at the counter. Seems like there are more sales guys than mechanics. Not a good sign.
