Hi,

Looking to get some maintenance (timing belt + fuel filter + possibly rad) work done and instead of going to stealership or local shops learning on the car, I would prefer to go a honest mechanic who isn't learning on the car. It's a 3.2L 2003.

These cars are rare so most of the mechanics are learning on it. Any recommendations?

I had a bad incident with a mechanic who punctured my trans line while installing a tie-rod.

did the mechanic say its because they are rare and hard to work on?
they are actually extremely easy to work on..electrical is another story but all the mechanical is just the same as every other car, in some cases its easier to work on because its a bigger car and you have more room in some spots.
i dont know how he punctured the tranny line doing the tie rod, they arent even close.... also there is a tie rod remover tool that most shops have. but usually you just hammer it off then spin it off the inner tie rod.
