I found out the inspection is without cost. This is a family run business that takes diligent care of it's customers and great pride in their work. Like the olden days! Thank you Balswick's!!! PS They are the ONLY one's we trust our oil changes and smog checks to. Courteous, attentive, honest, and quick!

I had been told by another shop that my car needed a new alternator and a new transmission. This shop was professional, squeezed me in, and figured out what was really going on. They communicated with me several times throughout the process. My transmission was fine... And they gave their findings without badmouthing the other mechanic. Also, they found every little thing that was wrong with my car, which matched up perfectly with what I know had or had not been done to it (unlike the other shop's assessment), but didn't pressure me to do it all right now. I found the owner and Tommy to be respectful and kind, even when my dad (whom I took with me after my unfortunate ordeal at the other shop) pressured them on their higher pricing. I completely understand why this shop has such a loyal following in Oakdale. And I will gladly pay a little more and drive from Modesto for a mechanic I can trust to take care of my car. I am a customer for life.
