I used to work right next to Mings Auto Repair many years ago and I continue to use him after I have moved many times. There are many mechanics a lot closer to where I live and more convenient to get to by public transport/walking but I take the time to go to Ming because of his outstanding service. I trust him like a member of the family. I ask him a lot of questions just because I like to know what is going on but I don't doubt his personal integrity or the quality of his work in the least. Most of the time I take it in for an oil change I tell him do just do what ever else he thinks needs to be done and unless it costs over $100 don't bother calling me. He treats the car like his own and knows when to make the judgement call of whether a repair can hold out till the next oil change or whether to use a generic component or an original. He intelligently advises me on the tradeoffs between paying the extra money for quality and not throwing money just to get a brand-name. Those are tough choices for a car novice like me but most of the time I just go with what ever he says he would have done for his own car. At my last visit he even talked me out of doing a repair that I was paranoid about but he assured me I could hold off till my next oil change. Ming is awesome and I would recommend him to anyone. Like the other posters say, he does not advertise but has plenty of business. And the location is not great for public transport but if you schedule an appointment he will drop you off to anyplace nearby (I live in Newton and he drops me there). If you want to check it out, he also now has a web site: http://www.mingsautorepair.com/ - Mel

Ming costs slightly above average but is well wrth it. I bring my car to him from 100 miles away (used to live closer). There's no need to get a second opinion or price. He's honest, fast and does a good job explaining the process. He won't take short cutsd, which can be frustrating but is best in the

I have been going to Ming's for almost 10 years. He is always willing to squeeze me in if I have an emergency and I have never had any doubt that he is truly honest. I can't leave the Boston area because I wouldn't want lose my mechanic!
