The check engine light on for some time and a prior auto shop didn't really seem to have a feel for the problem. Heard fairly good reviews on Dempsey's so thought I'd give them a try. They diagnosed the problem as a stretched timing chain. Seemed odd since, in a well-maintained car which mine is, timing chains usually last over 200K miles ( I have 147K on mine). I also had brakes all the way around and new caliphers which they said I needed. The cost for this was probably or just slighly less than dealer cost. Finished off with an oil change. Whole bill just over $2,100. While the cost is not outrageous, it is just a bit high but not enough to scare me away. The proof will be in quality/cost of future services which should be more routine and I will post on Angie's List. As of now, I recommend this shop for repairs/ servicing. Again, will continue to post as the relationship develops.
