    Default Mecano Automotive - Pug Specialist

    Hey all,

    I've noticed a Pug specialist on the Princes HWY in Tempe called Mecano Automotive.

    Has anyone had any dealings with this place? If so, good or bad?

    Mecano is now run by John Nguyen and the head mechanic is Ellis De La Rosa.

    I had my timing belt, water pump, rear engine mount and driveshaft bearing replaced for, what I felt was a reasonable $830. Does this sound about right?
