After 10 years of dutiful trips to the dealer for routine annual maintenance, I decided to find an independent shop to handle my now ten year old (59k miles) 911. The visits to the dealer have become a constant battle over what was really needed versus what they try to sell. Auto-Therapy was recommended by another Porsche enthusiast.
I called Roger, the owner, and he said to come by and he'd review the maintenance records and take a quick look at the car. I did and was impressed with his willingness to do that and also with what he said I didn't need done.
I made an appointment for the annual oil change and during that he went though the various things I might expect as the car gets older. He also told me what could be deferred and what might need attention sooner. He also pointed out things while the car was up on the rack for me to see and to consider as the car gets older.
All in all, a very good experience and certainly less expensive than the dealer. I was impressed with Roger's knowledge and his daughter, another Porsche owner, who also works with him. I plan to keep the car for a while and will bring it back for the things that go with longer term ownership. Roger seems like an honest and very capable guy who is also very nice to deal with. I think his shop is a great find for anyone in Maryland who is tired of the dealerships.
