In 1992, I stalled out during late-day rush-hour while driving a trouble-riddled 1987 Audi 5000S in downtown Miami. At the time, I was absolutely skeptical of anything related to its repair due to several prior dishonest experiences. New to Miami and "a little down on my luck" in those days, I was given Affordable Auto Repair's number by a co-worker who described Neil, it's owner, as honest and fair. Although I was reassured of Affordable's reasonable rates, I took out a loan for $1000 expecting the worst. After having the car towed to Affordable one morning, I received a call from Neil after lunch telling me it was ready to be picked up. Slightly surprised, yet irritated, I asked why he hadn't called me with the estimate for repair. His answer: "I figured you wouldn't have declined, so I fixed the problem. The cost is $29. Your fuel line was disconnected." I was floored; I couldn't believe what I heard and asked him to repeat himself. Since that day in 1992, I have brought every one of my vehicles to Affordable. Neil and his repair staff are underrated in a much over-hyped car repair industry. Affordable Auto Repair does not advertise integrity, it exhibits it. Thank you Neil for 23 years of trust; you have been worth every penny. Btw, I paid back the loan the same day he called.

Plaza Tire & Auto Center (PTAC) was recommended to me by my son, Tony. According to him, the guys at PTAC are great mechanic. As soon as I walked in the shop reception area, this guy I never met before was just raving about how "Gab" takes great care of him and his wife's car, might I add, he was this tall curly head "cute" guy, so I listened attentively, anyway, I left my car, about 2 hours later was called and told what the problem was and was quoted a price; although it was not ready by the cob (Friday), Gab made sure he called me to let me know right away and assured me that he would contact tomorrow (Saturday), The story does not end there, on Saturday, the part had not come in, and Gabe with his soothing and pleasant voice called me just before noon (I hate getting up early on Saturday) to let me know that it would be on Monday. Well the weekend came and went (and it felt good be hang around the house uninterrupted - since my car was not in the driveway). By Monday afternoon, the car was ready and my son and I went by to pick up my car. I could go on but I think this says it all, PTAC treated me with care and good ole fashion customer service like the time when the gas station attendant would come out and fill your car and wash your windshield.
I'm a college student, NYU, visiting family for a vacation. My car broke down, as I was looking for the part, no one had it, and I was referred to buggy Doctor several times over again. As I called and nobody answered, I decided to go over, they said they were closed on a Monday, but an employee was there working on their personal car. I explained my situation, and that employee called the owner, he said to fix it if it wasn't too difficult. Carlito was very helpful and worked very diligently on my car, he diagnosed and fixed the problem within two hours that would've taken five. As I went to pay I realized I had no cash on me, I was so embarrassed, nevertheless, the owner, Guillermo/William told me to come back the next day. Now I am back at home in my dorm and whenever I have any issues with my car, I go online and order my parts. You can talk to the technician and they can help you, literally from a distance. I recommend this to everyone with a vw or Audi. It's nice to know that there's still people out there that go above and beyond to help a person in need. I would give six stars if I could. Kudos to the Buggy Docor and their staff.
