I took my '86 Volvo to Wades a couple years back. The muffler had just dropped to the ground while my wife was driving it. The pipe behind the catalytic converter, and the muffler, were simply rotted out. (I won't mention the name of the shop that had recently installed a new catalytic converter, who should have noticed the entire exhaust system was in disrepair.) Wades replaced the pipe and installed a brand new muffler. The amount I paid was the best part, they could have charged twice as much and I still would have gotten the best deal in town. A few months later there was a rattling noise coming from below the car, I checked it out myself and noticed it was from some loose shielding around the catalytic converter. Knowing that Wades was not in any way responsible, I took it to them with confidence that they would be able to solve this problem for a reasonable charge. They did the work AT NO CHARGE. Now don't take this to mean that they work for free, they deserve every dime they charge for work they perform. Whenever there is talk of auto repair amongst friends and/or associates, I tout Wades as the place to go for honest and reliable exhaust work. Today I asked Wades, on behalf of a friend, for a quote on a new catalytic converter. Their quote was litterally HUNDREDS of DOLLARS LESS than any other quote. I believe they do Performance Exhaust systems also. Just call 'em, or show up, you will be happy you did.
As the owner of a Mercedes S class, I'm glad that our family found someone like Reinhard to keep our vehicle maintained and on the road. Their estimates have always been accurate when they call to tell us what our vehicle needs. They always get us in within a day or 2 of calling. Yeah sure sometimes the final bill might be a little over due to needing an extra hose or part that you find bad when taking it off to get to another part but I would rather they replace it then and there, so we don't have to make a return trip or call for a tow when we are on the road. We have always been fairly treated by him and his wife in the office. Some of these other reviews I would I ??? as I do most on the internet these days. Stop in meet them talk to them you will see. They are straight forward and some people don't like that but personally I like the no gimmicks no games and I'm not against paying for someone's time to look over and actually repair what is "actually" needed. I have been coming here for over 3 years and will continue to do so.
I bought a used Mercedes and took it to Reinhards for an inspection. He had the inspection done in less than 2 hours with detail cost breakdowns on each and every repair. There was no high pressure to get anything done, it was just a detailed review of the current condition of the car. I decided to get a good portion of the repairs done at the same time and while extensive (tune up, fan clutch, front brake replacement, rear window actuator replacement, etc) he was still done in the same day. When I went to pick up the car he took the time to show me all of the old parts and explain why they needed to be replaced. This is the first time I've ever seen a repair bill where the parts cost outweighed the labor cost. That almost never happens and the final price was exactly what the estimate had been. No add ons and no surprises! The car runs noticebally better now and there is no question that I will never take my car anywhere else!
