John Phelps, owner of Phelps Automotive Plus is a highly-skilled, exceptional, and honest mechanic. Yesterday morning, I brought my car to John to analyze and repair an exhaust system issue I was having with my Honda Element. After being told by two muffler shops that I needed a new catalytic convertor and a few other exhaust system components (where one shop quoted me $1,100. for the repair, and the other quoted me $1,400.), John determined that I definitely did not need a new catalytic converter (and that what I really needed was an exhaust manifold gasket). John promptly repaired the gasket problem, and charged me $100. which was a huge relief to me. This is typical of how John Phelps does business (as I've had him do mechanical work for me in the past with very similar experiences). Hence, I strongly recommend this shop if you're looking for similar experiences to mine.
