I read some of the earlier reviews, and was a little apprehensive at first, but Michael treated me honestly and fairly. He thoroughly explained my brake and light inspection, let me know all the charges up front, and seemed as happy as I was when my car passed. Very professional, very honest. I would not hesitate to use A&M Auto Repair again.
My friends gave me high recommendations to visit A&M Auto Repair and see Michael for fixing up my car problems.I have found these guys to be some of the best, most honest mechanics and remained very satisfied.
How many mechanics shops can a woman walk into, and not feel like she's about to get ripped off??? Now I know. This is A&M. Fair pricing, honest and professional work, good communication.
Absolute rip off!!! Avoid this place unless you want to be ripped off!!! I was feeling lazy and decided to go to this place for a brake and lamp inspection that was required by the dmv because it was close to where I was at. What a huge mistake that was. The owner quoted me $77 on the phone and by the time I got out of there it was $177. He charges you the $77 up front and then nickels and dimes you thru the whole process adding $30 here $40 there. Meanwhile he's got your whole car disassembled and says if you want to put it back together you can!!! Shady business practice! I would not recommend this place even to my worst enemy.
My car has had problems with the electrical system from the first month I had it, but nothing too serious - just check engine light that comes on intermittently. I brought my car here when the brake light came on - though the brakes appeared to be fine, in great workign condition. They test drove it and ran the computer diagnostic - I had a sensor that wasn't making a proper connection and they fixed that. The brakes were fine, they noticed a problem with one of my blinkers, so they fixed that and replaced the tag light. Nothing too major, but gives me some relief that I won't be pulled over for something minor - the cops in my neighborhood love to write out tickets.
Despite the negative comment on this site, I decided to give this place a try since it was close to my work. The mechanic was extremely professional, and provided me with a beverage while I was waiting for my brake and light inspection. When he returned from his test run, approximately 15 minutes later, he explained what needed to be done. He did not know that I have gotten a quote from another shop, but his quote was much cheaper and he truly seemed to know what he was doing. The service was great, my car runs perfectly, and I will definitely be back there with any future problems! Nice to know a honest service exists out there. This was a good lesson not to always believe the negative comments people write.
I went in to this shop to get the brake and light certificate. Once the mechanic (Owner) came back from a five minute solo test drive, he proceeded with the light test. Surprisingly my turn signals failed. SIDE NOTE: They've always worked.
Having built the car myself (My hobby), I knew it was the fuse. After I exposed the fuse box, I immediately noticed the fuse for the turn signals was gone. Once I confronted the owner, he threw me out of his shop. I put in a fuse, fixing the problem, and left.
Read the yelp reviews, this business has unflattering history.
The owner of the shop Mike really took care of me. From the moment I stepped into his office got straight to the point. Mike immediately explained the process of how the Brake and Lamp inspection works. He also clearly explained the condition of my vehicle. The process was very fast and Mike made it very simple unlike other places where it can be confusing. I truly believe that I got the best deal in town and thank Mike and his mechanics for their honesty and professional service.
