    Where do I find a good technician?

    I'm looking for suggestions for where to take my car in Maryland or Northern Virginia for general maintenance as well as specific problems that may occur.
    Who has certified v-techs?

    waiting for ewill3rd to post...

    ...he used to be a V tech @ Lindsay, so i would pretty much defer all questions to him....

    hopefully he's got time to jump in here and help you out in the near future (i sent him a PM so he won't miss this thread)

    I have actually taken my V to Lindsey and indeed had ewill3rd work on it. He was great!
    He told me he no longer works there. This is why I'm looking for a new tech.

    I'm pretty sure that he said that he still recommends people take their Vs there.
    He didn't leave on bad terms - just needed to stop turning wrenches all day every day.

    Lindsay Cadillac is the shit! Definitly the best looking Caddy dealer I've ever been to. Oh and the service was good too. But I was really impressed with the apperance, especially compared to Ken Dixon in Waldorf.

    Robert is handling the V work there the last I heard.
    It is still a good place to have your car serviced.
    I know a lot of folks have left since I did so I can't tell you who to see, Mike is a good service advisor and I know he is still there.

    Thanks for responding Bill!
    Does Robert post here?

    Lindsey a long way for me to go if your not there.
    Is there any other dealership (technician) more towards Rockville you'd suggest?

    Thanks again!
