Take a weekend in the foothills of the Berkshires and have it done up here. I know two excellent Indy shops. Probably pay for trip with savings off NYC prices.

Speed Motors in Brooklyn... Mcdonald Avenue put in the timing belt in my Camry V6 1mzfe using Aisin pump and Bando accessory belts. They've been ridiculously honest with me and my friend's cars for quite some years now.

There is only one owner.

Mario the owner owns several apartment buildings. At this stage in his life the gas station gets him out of bed in the morning he doesn't need the money.

If you find one on Long Island let me know.............. I get lazy from time to time and need to find someone good. The last time I had work done by someone that was good in the past he screwed up, and I ended up redoing his lousy work after I got tired of his [censored] excuses.

The two shops I would suggest are BarKen in Canaan NY and VanDeusen in New Lebanon, NY.

Both shops can handle most anything needed on a vehicle.

It's a great time of the year to come up the Taconic Parkway for a mini vacation.

If you can get the car up to South Main Auto in Avoca NY, you'd be in good hands.

We should all be so lucky, but he's an 8 hour drive at least from the bottom end of NYC

If your willing to brave the plank, All Tire and Company on SI has always done good work for me
