Mike Labre's shop is among the leading automotive places I've encountered in a long tour of car repair covering several cites and two states. Mike and his crew are rare examples of complete professionals with a genunine appreciation for the customer, thier needs and the vehicle itself. Key elements which contribute to this assessment are first and foremost the genuine appreciation for his trade/craft that Mike has and exhibits each time he works on my vehicle.I have a 12 year old 157,000 mile Durango which the shop keeps running as if it was 2000. He and his crew look at the vehnicle as a patient, not a hunk of metal, wiring and rubber! In evaluating what is needed, Mike communicates not just clearly and in laymans terms but with an obvious enjoyment of his keen diagnostic skill. And he masters the art of being a genuine person....one who likes his customers, values them and is determined to be fair and resonable in his billing. Look to the wall in the office and see evidence of his commitment by the long rows of certifications he and his staff have completed to ensure credible knowledge and skill across the wide plain of auto repair. Relaize that Mike pays for his crew's education and training and you can sense the kind owner he is in terms of those who work for and with him. And there is always merit in patronizing a native son of Sonoma with family roots which contribute to a sense of responsibility to the community which Mike carries. If you are thnking of looking for better auto care, more professional, learned and genial then work with Labre's once and you will move to become a regular. If you are new to the Valley....you cannot go wrong taking your vehicle to Labre's.
