Mr Grimmel and his techs provide a much needed service in Lewiston Auburn area.
Relatively inexpensive no-frills auto service. If you're on a budget or you want friendly local service and you don't need to watch and sip a latte while they work, you should go see Mr Grimmel (I've always thought watching auto mechanics is a little like seeing sausage being made haha) They've been at it for a long time and do great work. They also have great deals on used tires and Interstate batteries ,though you might have to know a little about tires to get the right ones. I have been taking my vehicles (2004 PT Cruiser, 1999 Chevy Tahoe, 1991 Dodge Caravan) to Jim Grimmel for about 4 years and have never been unhappy with the service. Yesterday I noticed that my PT Cruiser inspection was overdue ..stopped in to talk about getting an appointment at about 11:30 am and he said that if I could leave it he would do the oil change that was overdue, rotate the tires and inspect it. I left it and walked home (beautiful day for a walk) , called him with my credit card info at 5 and had him lock the keys in so that I could pick it up at my leisure. Total bill was under $75 and included Mobil One (top quality synthetic) oil and Mobil One filter. I am still a very satisfied customer. Michael
PS. Unlke some other chain service opearations, I trust that Grimmel's is not going to tell me that I need to so anything that doesn't really need to be done. YMMV
Don't expect a bunch of fancy record keeping or high tech gizmos -> just plain old fashioned friendly skilled auto service.
