Default Reputable shop Plymouth MA area

Hi guys
I'm at a used Subie in the Plymouth area. Want to get a compression and leakdown test done and get the brakes replaced before driving it home. Can you recommend someplace close to Plymouth (brakes are really bad) capable of doing the inspection and brake work.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Bruce

You can try Bakers Auto over on Camelot (behind BJ's, Exit 5). They are primarily a body shop but they do full services. So far I like these guys the best. The guy who rolled my fenders is rebuilding a Mustang Cobra with a pro-charger. Car guy for sure. I wouldn't go to Expert Automotive btw, they dropped the ball on me lately.

Bakers auto did a horrible job with the body work on my old wrx. Never again.

Not too many active folks on here from the Plymouth area. You could try Kelly Tire in Middleboro, they seem like a decent shop but I've only used them for inspections and alignments. Kenwood Tire in Bridgewater is a great shop but I haven't used them for real work either. But they have never pulled any BS and always come through for me.

I'm from Plymouth, I'd suggest the trip down to Atlantic Subaru on Cape Cod. That's where I take my car.

I don't know for sure but a while back I saw somewhere on these forums either someone knew people at Atlantic, or they worked there. I forget which, sorry.
Anyway, if you do go to any dealership, make sure you tell them to not wash your car. They'll mess it up.
I know Atlantic has a 'free wash with service' and they'll happily not wash your car; as long as you ask.
