    Outside from the toyota service departments, do anyone know of a good Toyota mechanic west vally side? I do some of my own work but I'm far from calling myself a mechanic.:help:

    Only place I know thats any good is Toybox Auto. They are in Tempe, but his rates and service are worth the drive.

    X2 on Toybox Auto. I had a bunch of work done to my Infiniti there. They are a good bunch of guys.

    Good to know. I haven't been there for a little over a year. I guess I'm out of the loop.

    Jake is still working things. He's a hell of a wrench turner too. And a nice guy, to boot. :)

    What kind of work are you looking to get done? There's a guy named Scott at Sun Devil Auto at 67th Ave and Bell that's probably the best mechanic I've seen. He's worked on all my vehicles. (my modified CJ-7, Cherokee, the wife's Volvo)

    I've heard some stories too. You have to be careful anywhere with these places. I don't deal with the counter guys, I go straight to him.
