My car had been overheating this past weekend and with a set business trip down to San Diego, I had to quickly find a shop! I decided to bring it to the nearest and highest rated place in my area, so when I showed up to Chalard's, I literally thought I could not be at the same location that so many of our fellow yelpers had been so optimistic and praiseworthy about. The shop seemed disorganized, unkempt, and shady. I met Chalard, left my car, and prayed that I would not come back to a $5000 bill, both in regards to my wariness of the shop as well as my actual engine issues. less than two hours later, I get a call from Chalard telling me that the problems were extremely minor and told me that everything had been fixed. Once I arrived, Chalard pointed out to me the replacements he made and the condition of my car. When I asked him how my car was doing overall, if he had suspected anything else that could be improved or fixed, he replied with, "it runs very well, I would never let anyone leave here if their car was not in the right condition to drive. Chalard won't meet greet you with a smile and ask you how your family is, he won't show up to work in a suit, and most certainly: he won't lie to you. He is a man of few words but he is an honest and extremely direct man, a characteristic that is extremely rare to find these days, ESPECIALLY in the auto mechanic industry. Chalard - if you are reading this, thank you for your honesty and integrity. I won't be going anywhere else!
