Finksburg / Westminster mechanics

I'm looking for a good mechanic after moving into the area. Will mostly be routine maintenance on two vehicles, and anything minor needed on my beater to keep it on the road. Also need a simple exhaust weld job done on the beater. Anyone have any experience with shops in the area?

TIA,
Dave

I have used Auto Correct Car Care for years. Right on 91 just behind the PNC and Papa John's at the 140 light.

Ask for Ben.... they are good folks and do good work at reasonable prices.

Mercedes Specialists on 140 in Westminster is owned by a MDS member. Maybe Mopar92 will be your mechanic as well.
They work on all cars, not just Mercedes.

I "second" Mercedes Specialists in Westminster. MDS'ers and all around good folk, and have done work for the Company I work for. If they were closer to our fleet, they would get a fair amount of our work.

I recommend another in Eldersburg. Yox Services. No offense to anyone else, but Mike Yox is the best dang mechanic I have ever known (and I'm a retired mechanic).

Mike Yox does all my work. He is honest and will spend your money like it is his.
