Hey everyone! I just got my first CRV last week, 2007 Ex-L AWD with 91,000 miles on it. I can't put into words how much I love this truck! At this point I feel I know what I want to do to this vehicle as far as maintenance which leads me into my question for everyone....

Does anyone know any good Honda mechanics around? I'm in Duluth, GA and I have Gwinnett Place Honda right down the road but I haven't spoken with them yet. I've historically done all my own maintenance on all of my vehicles, but I would like to get a solid checkup on my CRV from a professional with sharp eyes and ears. Also I want to get my valves checked and adjusted if necessary, but that's it. I'd love to do the valves myself, but I would want someone experienced to ensure I'm doing things properly, maybe for the price of a case of beer (was that a bribe?????)

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated, I gotta keep this awesome machine in tip-top shape!

Chris at Rio Imports / The Honda Specialist is a knowledgeable Honda-trained mechanic who is honest and fair. His shop is very small and a bit cluttered but the guy knows Hondas. He hasn't tried to upsell me on stuff and his prices have been less than the dealer (nobody is inexpensive!).

I wouldn't mind meeting up and taking a look at it, it just gotta be on a weekend though. I live down the street from Gwinnett Place Honda. I went to school at Gwinnett Tech College for automotive. But if anything, all you would probably need is just a minor tune up (oil change, oil filter, air filter, spark plugs, and transmission fluid). I have a buddy that works at Blake Automotive in Suwannee, GA. Off Lawrenceville Suwannee Rd near the Movie Tavern. They specialize in Hondas. They do good work. Check them out!
