He kept my Beetle going strong when I was a broke student and later a broke photographer for the Journal and Courier... the kind of shop I would die for where I live now.

If you have a German car, this is the place to go. Walter is very skilled and thorough. If there is a tricky problem others can't figure out, he will. He may work a little slow on the harder issues, but it's only because he gets to the root of the problem and does not skimp on anything. If it's something simple, he will make the time to fix it on the spot. What more do you need from a mechanic?

I appreciate his honesty and candor on assessing my car's problems. I was quoted a $540 repair at the dealership and he was to simply replace a part and save me $300. I will not take my car anywhere else when I have problems with 2008 Honda Accord.

Walter had one of his guys give my wife and kids a ride to the zoo and picked them up when they were done. Whhaaat? Who does that? Van ran flawlessly on the 7,500 mile road trip. The problem was a severed power wire running to the coil which they reran and changed my air box which is impossible to find. Unbelievable service and caring guys.

He did great work and our 2012 VW Sportwagen Jetta Diesel is running great once again. I will definitely go back to him again in the future!

Beck's Auto Center
I went into the shop because something had broken loose under my car after an unavoidable collision with a rock. The technician looked at my car and got me a quick fix without the need for a lengthy repair, which I feared would be the case. It is nice to know honest repairmen exist! Thanks, Beck!

DO NOT BUY A CAR FROM HERE! They place ads on Craigslist, deceiving you into thinking your buying a car from person not dealer. They lie about the condition of the cars, they do NOT have a mechanic look at them. We will be taking this company to court.

Can't say anything good about this shady outfit. Was looking for a Toyota 4 Runner. They had two of them. Both had holes in the frame. The black one pictured was so bad it is basically ready for the junkyard due to the frame being rotted. They are selling dangerous vehicles which don't belong on the road. So buyer beware of this place.

Tips & Advices
The cost of repairing a radiator can range from $15-$200 or more. A new hose can be purchased you can get the job done by purchasing a hose for between $15-$50.  If the water pump needs replacement, one can be purchased for $35-$75. Hiring a professional mechanic to repair a radiator will cost $80-$125 hour, and repairs typically take one or two hours.
Self-installing a radiator can be difficult without having  previous experience working under a car's hood. The process involves allowing the radiator to cool, and then draining all the coolant. The radiator's sensors, hoses, and fans need to be unhooked. Next, the radiator is unscrewed and removed from the frame, and the new radiator is installed.
When selecting a new radiator, look for one made by a brand with a strong reputation, since quality can vary tremendously among brands. Crossflow radiators tend to be more efficient, but some older cars will only accommodate downflow radiators. Determine whether you want to purchase a plastic, aluminum, or copper radiator. Aluminum radiators offer superior cooling capacity.
Aftermarket radiators are safe to use. The benefit of aftermarket radiators is that they are often less expensive than radiators from the car's manufacturer. It's possible to find high-quality aftermarket radiators, and there are many solid choices out there. However, the quality can vary significantly from brand to brand.
Radiators can be repaired. If the temperature gauge on the car's dash is reading higher than normal, it's a good idea to get a mechanic to take a look at the car's radiator and cooling system to see if repairs are necessary. Prompt radiator repair can help avoid costly engine damage.
