I found the best place to get my car worked on!!! I have taken my Scion XB to 3 shops to find out why my battery keeps going dead overnight, the first shop put a battery in it, the second shop put an alternator in it and the third shop charged me $50 to test it and said that no problem was found... I took it to Platinum and told them the history of my problems and within 15 mins a guy named Dave found that I had a bad part for one of my doors and the light inside would not go off all the time! He used some oil or something to make it work like it should and have had no problems in the last 3 month. The best thing is that they did not even charge me to fix it!!!!!!! Thanks so much
I used to have my car serviced here years ago and had some bad service, But this shop has turned around big time!!!! The tech Scott is very good and has been there for many years, They have a new tech Carter that I guess worked there in the past and he was able to figure out a problem with my 2003 BMW 328ci that 4 other shops have charged me over $900 to fix. Thanks Platinum Wrench!!!! I will send all my friends!

Platinum Wrench Auto Repair just fixed my Jeep! Actually, they took the time and effort to fix what another POS care care center f'd up... THANK YOU!
They are fair, trustworthy, dependable and knowledgeable and I would trust them with my grandma and her 63 Skylark... if she were still around.
If you don't have a mechanic, or have one that you have settled for but wouldn't trust with your grandma and her 63 Skylark, go to Platinum Wrench Auto Repair.

My name is Thomas. I'm a new customer to platinum wrench. I brought my 2010 BMW 5 series, to get some brake work information. Because Bert smith wanted a million dollars to do the work and there was twenty other problems with my car that the warranty didn't cover and needed to be done so the vehicle was safe for the road. So I set appointment for that next Tuesday, I went home and I did a little research on some local import car repair shops that were reputable in my area . You guys had the highest customer reviews so i figured what the hell let’s see what Platinum finds out about the situation with my cars brakes and dash lights.
I spoke with a very nice guy named Rob and he seemed very knowledgeable about BMW's and the crazy pricing a Bert Smiths service department. Anyways platinum quoted a very fair price on the pads and labor. So they started working on my car and said that I’d be out of their in about two hours or less.
So in the process of the repair I was informed by Rob that there was a few things with my car he thought needed to be brought to my attention. Turns out the last Import garage I brought my car to installed junk yard pads and calibers, guess that’s what you get in Southeast Georgia, Long story short instead of a normal brake pad service, I needed to change out everything because the cheap parts I was unaware where installed on my car, destroyed my rotors and of course the correct parts I needed were a two day shipping period, and that won’t work for me so the mechanic working on my car scot, recommend I tried to not drive the car because it really wasn’t safe for the highway , Then rob offer to rent me a car for the two days need to finish the job if I wanted to have them order the factory certified parts and do the work and still offered me a fair price for everything. I agreed to the repair, a day pass I get a phone call about 9:30 am that my car was completed and ready for pick up. So I came to pay the bill and get my car and turns out they never charged me any cost for the rental car, and washed my car for me. Thanks rob, scot and everyone else there at Platinum wrench you guys are the best! Thank you guys again you did one hell of a good job and were very flexible to my needs, and know your trade! My car drives and stops on a dime ! and you the calibers even say bmw like when I bought the car new.

Thanks Platinum you guys saved me again! My Truck broke down on my way to work last Wedsnday , i called eddie at platinum
,he had sent Evelands Towing out to me five minutes from my job of course. Anyways the tow truck driver dropped me off at
work so i wouldn't be late ! Took my truck to there shop i called eddie on my lunch to see if they had got a chance to
check out my truck. Turns out it was a fuel pump and the part was $250.00 and the labor was $270.00 plus a $55.00 tow bill.
I told eddie, their was no way i could afford $600.00 this week, Little did i know they offer 90 days same as cash ! Witch
saved me .And the best thing of all they had some one pick me up from work and bring me to there shop to pick my truck up cause it
was finished, and thats to the new owners 90days deal i only had to put down $300. Thank you guys for saving me again.
I would have to rate platinum a 5 for sure!

I've been a customer for years now, and i have to say these guys know their stuff !! I have been reading some of the things that have been posted about Platinum wrench and i have to say mine opinion. and i'll only let them work on my cars to tell you the gods honest truth i have never been to another repair shop like Platinums!
Nothing compares to the reputation of Honesty. I just wanna add more thing, at first i wasn't sure platinum would be the same when the new owner came on with them, and I have to say Rob is very involved with his shop and i'm impressed with you guys still! Thank you guys very much keep up the hard work fellas!

Thank you Platinum, you guys are the best! I went to the dealer to get some minor work done on my car, they over priced me by hundreds of dollars on my estimate and tried to tell me the problems my car was having where major computer problems! And that it was gonna cost thousands of dollars. i told my buddy that i work with and he told me about PLATINUM WRENCH.
I'm glad he did because, not only are you guys honest you all are very helpful and explain part by part the problem and how you can fix it! The manager Eddie had my car picked up from work made it very easy for me while i was working, he's a great guy! They repaired it that day before i got off from work then had a very polite young man named Tim picked me up and they even detailed my car for me, FREE OF CHARGE! When we got back to the shop i spoke with a guy named Rob, he explained what had most likely caused the problem, and how they fixed and by fixing that it made the other problems go away, Plus the ending balance was even lower than the originally set price we agreed on!
Thanks guys i'll never take any of my cars anywhere else! Keep up the good work! Thank you for your honesty it very rare in repair shops these days.

I am a out of state owner of a BMW 740IL. I often travel to Pinellas Park for business. Last week I was traveling in my BMW all the sudden the car started shaking and loosing power. I got off to the side of the road and the car just quit. Here I am from out of town and no one to call. I did not want to call a BMW dealer ($$$$ as I have already had that experience from my hometown and beyond. $$$$$$) I talked to some locals as I call them, and was referred to this place called Platinum Wrench. From the time I called I knew I was going to the right place. The people were nothing but professional, extremely curious ,and made me feel I was their best customer. (even though I was a first timer). The car was towed to the shop and I was greeted by one of the owners Rob. He took the time and went over exactly how they were going to troubleshoot my issue. Within an hour or so they not only found the problem but FIXED IT as well!!! WOW, I was shocked. No parts needed just a wiring issue. Now that is honesty! I have now scheduled all my routine maintenance with Platinum Wrench in conjunction with my business travels to Pinellas Park. And I will say I have NEVER been disappointed! To all you fellow BMW owners ,if you like customer service, professional technicians, and extremely reasonable pricing then you need to go to Platinum Wrench. Thanks to all the guys that always take care of my baby, and especially Rob. See you the end of next month..

Platinum Wrench is awesome!! I have had them work on both my wife's 2001 Audi TT and my 2004 Ford F150. Everytime I have taken a vehicle in they have been very prompt and always call to review the necessary repairs. They are never pushy and always give me options, if available. My F150 had an electrical problem and the dealer would not even try to diagnose it. They just wanted to sell me a new audio system. I am so glad I talked to Rob before I did! He saved me over $600 bucks by asking me the right questions and finding a short! All I needed was a length of new wire! Platinum will always be my 1st choice for my auto repairs! If there is anything I can say about the new owners, it is that they are all about CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! Rob has really taken this operation to the next level! If you need any auto repairs, go out of your way to take your car here! You will be glad you did!

This place used to be a great shop, I guess there are new owners. The guy Eddie in the office is pushy and wants to sell you every part on your car! This place has really made a turn for the worse since the new owners came in! Dont let them get you like they did me!!!

I took my car in for service. They called me and said I needed a new radiator, water pump the whole 9 yds. He ""showed"" me where there was a ""leak"" my husband said that is the oldest trick in the book. They take a syringe and drip antifreeze on a part and say there's a leak. Anyway not wanting to chance it, I told them go ahead and do the work. They said I also needed 3 new fuel injectors. My husband told them they ripped me off. He called AAA, because they are AAA recommended. HA....HA.. Still having problems after spending $1700.00 NEVER AGAIN!!!!!
'tech that worked there' I WAS a tech for this non professional shop. I have painted parts that i have pulled from the car and sold back to the customer. The owner of this shop made us do this on a regular basis. I got fired off because i did not believe this was write. I am a honest man. I would not bring your car to this shop unless you want to get screwed Pros: none

My Porsche had a starter problem. I had coworker recommend this facility. I drove my vehicle from Dunedin to Pinellas Park. They had told me the repair would be completed in two to three days. They had my car for 3 days. When I went to pick up my vehicle, I had to pay over $3000. On top of that the problem was not fixed. They told me to bring it back in. I did so thinking this time they would fix the problem. They had my vehicle for over a week. Once again they did not fix the problem, instead charging me another $2000. My vehicle was never fixed. They were not professional, and I lost over $5000 without my Porsche ever being fixed.
