When I was 1 hour and ten minutes into my trip my car started to feel like there was some hesitation. Then I could smell that terrible rubber smell and I was like "seriously"? I pulled over at the Fire station just to check things out. Now I only checked the driver's side tire because of an incident that happened long ago with the caliper sticking. But nothing. So I continue on down the road and things aren't getting any better. I just happened to see a garage on my left with the doors open. I had driven by it and had gotten to my first light and suddenly I was up in smoke....Front passenger side. I pull over and I'm in panic mode. I have no one with me except my little dog and friends and family are an hour or so away. Now I am really anxious and panicky. I turn around and go back to this garage " Combs Automotive" . As soon as I walk in, I explain my story and I apologize that it is now 5 pm on a Friday and most people would be closing up shop to enjoy the weekend. But not Krissy and Chris. They took the time out to help me and "Big Red" (what I call my car) so that I would be able to continue my trip. Now I could have turned around and gone home but it was a pretty special weekend for me and a couple college girlfriends. So it was important for me to continue on. Chris did what he could at the time to get my car in working order and I was so grateful. Krissy kept me and my dog company in the nice cool office. After almost an hour, I was on my way and told them I would check in on Monday to see if they could fit me in to their schedule to replace the parts that had to be fixed completely. On Monday, I was told to come in around 3:30 pm. Given my OCD (lol) , I left Niskayuna at 2:15 pm so that I could get to Gansevoort early just in case parts had to be ordered. I rolled into Combs Automotive at 3 pm and I was on my way home at 4 pm. I know I said this was a quick story, but boasting about a great business should never be a quick story. I wanted to let all my friends know and Krissy and Chris to know that I appreciated the wonderful service I received and that you two are the friendliest people I have ever met in the auto repair service. I would recommend anyone in the area to choose your shop for service and to anyone who finds themselves in a pickle~ like me~ to stop and see you. Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Hope to see you again soon! (on better terms) LOL Sincerely, Jodi Gibeault Rutland, VT
