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.

People say that there is no such thing as an "honest mechanic", but these people have never met Neil from Affordable Auto Repair. I was having issues with my car not starting. I went to a chain location, starts with "Tire" ends with "dom"; and after 4 hours and 3 mechanics they just told me "I don't know whats wrong with it". I looked up affordable auto repair and after reading their reviews I had to call them and speak with Neil. I explained to Neil what was wrong, and what I thought it could be. He assured me he would be able to pin-point exactly what was wrong. I dropped off my car the next day, and by the end of the day my car was up and running. Neil is very professional and very transparent of the work he does on your car. He does not just tell you "what" needs to be done, but explains the "why" behind it as well. Also, the cost of labor he charges beats any dealer and major/minor chain that I personally looked up. Thank you Neil! I'll see you soon for routine maintenance.
Excellent! The service was friendly, and fast which is not the standard in Miami. Neil was great in truly explaining the situation with my car and charged me exactly what was needed to fix it! The man and staff know their stuff. Its a mechanic shop, so if you are looking for a high tone facility with espresso cafe served while you wait this is not the location, but its the place to go in get your car fixed and truly feel they are not trying to overcharged or rip you off with other services your car does not need.
