Overall

The mechanics at Shorty's do good work. But be cautious with them.



I had a car that stalled out after replacing the battery. I was told by the staff at Shorty's that the alternator was bad and needed replacing. After the work was done, the car still stalled out. I took it back and was THEN told that the computer resets when the battery is disconnected and it needed to relearn what normal idle was so a drive cycle was necessary. It would sputter when more power was required of the motor/battery (AC, windows), but it worked and after that it ran fine. So, it cold have been that the alternator WAS bad but it could have also been the computer resetting. Lesson learned.



Two years later, the starter died. I replaced it, myself. Car cranked fine but died after about 30 minutes. I figured it was related to the alternator so I took it back to Shorty's since they replaced it two years earlier. I came to find out that the starter was connected wrong....apparently, even though it was wired wrong (my mistake), the starter would still work but the battery was draining out. Shorty's then asked about the sputtering (remember the computer above?) and something was wrong with the AC. I became suspicious and told the guy that the owner said it was normal after disconnecting the battery. Then I get the owner on the phone who scolds me for fixing it myself, played dumb over the alternator/computer reset and swore i had AC problems before, which I never had. I could tell he wasn't happy when I wasn't going to budge and he took a last dig by advising that I need to be careful and suggesting I did more damage to the electrical system....(which I come to find out later that the make and model of car I had was KNOWN for having a lot of electrical problems.) Shorty's knows their stuff...which means they also know the weakness of various autos.

Shorty's is a great place to get your emissions done or to get your car fixed. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and fast. I've been getting my oil changed there for years, and any time I have a problem with my car, they fix it. I would highly recommend Shorty's.

Great Quality of Service

I brought my vehicle to countless places around the area and no one could figure out the problem. Within one hour of being at Shorty's they had properly diagnosed my vehicle and gave me a estimate for the repair. I decided to let them do the repair, and they gave me a ride home and picked me up when it was finished. I am very happy with the service and will be bringing all my vehicles here from now on. Thanks.
