Default Competent Techs in Augusta GA

It is time to get the timing belt done on our 2009 JSW. Dealer quoted me $800 for all of the rollers, belt, water pump and labor. Good friend works there.

I've heard stories about the techs not being so good.

I'm wondering if there is somebody who knows what they are doing and close by for the job.

Thanks in advance.
