    Hi all - I used to do all the work on my brother's 4runner but he recently moved to Cypress, which is basically NW Houston. I'm looking for a recommendation for a mechanic in that area that any of you in the area would recommend. Nothing build wise or series, just maintenance type items that my fellow TW members would/do use. Thanks in advance!

    Look for a “Service First” near him. They’re pretty good.

    Hey Chad how do you tag people like that? I’ve been on here for years and never figured it out.

    @txtaco87 what's the name of your shop and should I have him ask for you?

    Thanks all

    Skeeter's auto repair in Cypress. They are honest, will do good work and have been in business at their location for many years. They also have a radio call in show on AM 700 (KSEV) from Noon to 2PM every Saturday during which they help anyone who calls with their automotive-related questions.

    Yup. Tired of sweating my balls off all the damn time. It’s nice to be able to go to work and not change my socks 4 times

    It’s Bear Creek Car Repair Service (not to be confused with bear creek auto sales and service which was a junkyard of a place literally that was involved in many legal issues). We’re off Addicks satsuma and hwy 6, mon-fri 7:30a-6:30pm. My name is Nik, it’s my dads shop.
