Default Central NJ Repair for 2001 WS6?

Hi all! I am brand new, and this forum looks great for tons of expert advice. My question is, does anyone know a good central NJ (or anywhere further out if its worth it) repair shop for a 2001 WS6? I have been having multiple issues (power steering, tire rods, A/C, power window), getting close to 100k miles and the dealer totally screwed me over last time I went. Please let me know your thoughts! Thank you so much in advance everyone!

Is Cartek in NJ? I remember High Performance Pontiac had an article on them several years ago.

Thanks for the quick reply! I checked the Cartek website and they are in NJ, however at a glance it looks like they only do performance related upgrades and tuning, not necessarily general repair work. Let me know if you think they might though or have other info and I'll give them a call.

Also if you or anyone else out there has any other ideas for Central NJ WS6 repair, feel free to let me know, thanks a ton!

Marrazzo's in Hamilton Twp. My family has been going to them for over 30 years. They are honest and reasonable.

The guy that does whatever i dont want on my car is down here in southern jersey, runs his own shop and is also an ls guy. more than likely cheapest labor charge since its not his main source of income, pm me if interested.
