(silicone sealant instead of gaskets replaced as quoted etc. etc.)  The excuses/apologies were a testament to the disrespect of the customer and poor regard for work ethic.
In contract and in every instance Foresters proved to be an honest, ethical and extremely knowledgeable team. Over a two year period they have done brakes, rotors, repaired and replaced a transmission, a rear end and axels.  Universal joints, Ball Joints  Timing belts and chains,  head and exhaust gaskets, radiators and hoses,  solved various electrical issues,  and I could go on.  What is important is that they "diagnose" the problem correctly and actually FIX the problem.  I cannot emphasize this strongly enough.
I am writing this because the folks at Forrester's have  become friends.  They took ownership of my automobiles and always took care of me.
I have been around Nascar and mechanics since their beginnings before moving to Tennessee a decade ago.  Those mechanics have nothing on Doug at Foresters.  Take your car in to Foresters and  you will be amazed at the knowledge and ability that comes out of the service bay at this little business on Hixson Pike.
These guys are the best!! I've had children who were boarding students at Baylor since 2008 and have used Foresters for all their car issues- JEEP and BMW. My last child graduates in May. I will miss having Foresters handle oil changes and other car repairs. These guys are the real deal!! honest, fair, incredibly smart, and so helpful and accommodating. Thank you Jarrod for all your help through the years!!

We've been customers at Forester's for the last 6 months after living in Chattanooga for the last 2 years of which time we have been searching for knowledgeable and honest auto mechanics. We've used several and have been dissatisfied with them all until finding Forester's. They have gone above and beyond for us and have been the first guys to locate and fix the issue with one of our cars. They are so informed and could always clearly answer any questions we had, very affordable, kind and professional, and always made repairs in a timely manner. We are beyond thankful to have found Forester's! The search is over!!

We've brought our cars in for both routine maintenance and repairs, and we've always been impressed with the work and with the customer service. They've always done good work, on time, and for a fair price.

Best car repair experience ever. Very honest and trustworthy guys. Had the chance to charge me over 300 dollars extra for calipers and decided they weren't the problem. I feel like almost all other shops would have taken the chance to upcharge the repair. Literally half the price of budget brakes a mile down the road. Highly recommended.

Moved to the area a few months back. A coworker recommended these guys and they have been a huge help with my recent car troubles. Friendly, professional, and will do everything they can to solve your car issues. Thanks, Jarrod and company!

Just want to say thanks for always being courteous and most important...keeping my old car running.  You both take the time to listen to my car and I, figure out the problem and get it fixed as quickly as possible..
