A good mechanic is hard to find

but I found one. My car has been having problems where it feels like I need to have the clutch in about 1/2 inch through the floorboard to change gears. So I took my car in, to have it fixed. Ron's (the garage) has been working on it all week, and showed me the clutch they replaced, it was missing about 1/4 of the circular bit. They're not happy with how the clutch is working, though, so they had me come pick it up, and want me to drive it for a week or so, then see what I think. They're not charging me for any of the work until then, and if I'm not happy, they'll pull the transmission and work on it some more. They've already put in several hundred dollars of work they deserve payment for, so this amazing offer just makes me feel much better about having them work on my car.
The fact that it's not grinding every time I change gears is a huge plus, but they think it's still too hard to shift. I was used to the old way though, so driving it for a week is an excellent idea, just one I'd never expect to be offered like this.
