Question Mechanics in Austin, TX

Hey guys, I recently bought a 2013 FR-S and this is my first Toyota or a Subaru car. What mechanics / shops in Austin TX have you had good experience with. I have been driving VW's for 15 years and I know pretty well who to take my car to in town, but I have no idea about Scion / Subaru. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Join our Austin facebook group. Search for Austin 86 Club and you should get some better answers.

What all did you need done? I offer basic maintenance, track prep, and exterior detailing.

It has the intermittent no start problem. It is a push button car, so once in a few days pushing the button just doesn't do anything. The battery is only 3 months old. I read all threads I could find and bought a clutch safety switch I'll try to install today, but if that doesn't fix it I'll have to take it somewhere. I can only do very basic stuff and need to just have someone I can take it to that I trust.

I'll join the FB group. That sounds great.
