Ryan Mode is everything you want in a mechanic: honest, knowledgable, and personable. I have been bringing my 2002 RSX to him since I moved to SD from LA about 7yrs ago. He has kept it running smoothly and efficiently all this time. He is very good about bringing down the mechanical lingo to the plebian level so that you truly understand what is wrong and how he will go about to fix it. Also, if there is options, he gladly points those out to you as well. If it isn't immediately pressing, he will tell you to hold off and maybe repair it at another time. The RSX was in pretty decent shape when I first brought it in, but he has managed to make it run even smoother and I hardly have to visit unless it's maintence such as oil changes. Im so imcredibly lucky to find an intelligent and honest mechanic -- bring your cars to him, you will not be disappointed! .
