A shout-out to Precision Motor Works. Old Sue (our Isuzu pickup) lost her cool last summer. The best result of a series of frustrating visits to our usual mechanic was what proved to be a temporary fix that failed after three days. We welcomed fall and cooler weather. Fortunately, the heater works just fine.
When spring began to bring some warmer days, I drove eight miles up to Precision Motor Works in Flat Rock and they resurrected the a/c in under three hours at very reasonable cost. I won't dread forays down the mountain quite so much now.
I will still dread them, though.
