If you're in Boston or eastern Massachusetts, Overlander in South Boston is fantastic! They have worked on my 110 and my 03 RR and have always done a fantastic job. Honest and fair....

We're still here at Robison Service, though I have not been as active on the forums. We're just finishing a nice yellow D90 and there's a white one following right behind. We're doing anything from routine service to total restoration and we do a wide variety of custom work

What about near bayside queens, NY? She has been using Glenn Cove LR since she started driving my D2. It's frustrating to work with them.

Annapolis Maryland Garages??

Need a reliable garage in Annapolis Maryland area. My 110s been on a ship for three months and the gears started seizing (I could only drive in first) and what I think was the gearbox overheating 2 miles out of Dundalk port. All fluids were good and topped up except I could not check the gearbox before I had to leave the area and leave it at a friend in Arnold, Md. I suspect it maybe loss of transmission fluid or a stuck flywheel but I want to have a garage check it before I get back down there. Car transport to upstate NY is almost $1,000 so maybe its just better to get it looked at in the DC area ... Suggestions??

Reach out to Doug for the Annapolis area. Plenty of options in the DC area for sure.

Yeah - either way it sounds like you will need to transport it somewhere...so to keep the $$$ down I would suggest somewhere close to where it is stored - if you need to go elsewhere I would suggest British Classic Car Doctors in Upperville VA. They are awesome guys.

LR SHOP IN ALBANY (TROY) NY - Patrick is the owner, mechanic at The Gas Menagerie, a very small Jaguar/LR shop in Troy NY. He worked miracles on my 1985 110 CSW and got it in NY inspection ready state. He also fixed the wife's 1995 XJ6 and just changed the headers on a local's very nicely restored Series 3 88 .... the place is usually chock full of MGs, Jags and classic Rolls Royces. He is the MAN in the Albany-Upstate Hudson Valley area!

I hate to say things 'cause they seem like nice guys at this shop - probably says a lot about my bad judge of character so here goes -

I had them do considerable work when I was leaving my 110 in the area for a few weeks. They installed new springs/shocks OK. But they recommended getting both drive shafts rebuilt and replacing the entire muffler system. When I got the vehicle back (I saw it for the first time when it was delivered by transport truck to Seattle) - it was clear that the driveshafts had never even been removed from the vehicle - let alone rebuilt. The muffler system was a horrible piece of work - It was supposed to be a direct replacement from headers to tail pipe. The down pipes were cut off. It ran too close to drive shaft, pipe was hammered to make some of the bends, muffler upside down (heatshield facing the ground), leaks in at least 4 places - joints covered with muffler cement, bolts missing, carrier missing. Charged for a catalytic converter when there isn't one on the vehicle. After I looked at the work almost in disbelief I took it to another garage for a second opinion as requested by my cc company. It took them all of 5 minutes to come to the same conclusion - sub standard work and no repairs whatsoever to any driveshafts. It was laughable.

I challenged it all in a credit card dispute and was credited more than $2,400 back. The shop never never replied to the cc company to defend any of their work.

Stay away.
