Leading Edge AutoBody & Mechanical Repair
I recently came out of a restaurant to find that my sweet little Honda Fit had endured a nasty hit-and-run. The bumper was half-off, the left rear panel was massively dented in -- it was ugly. I'd never needed an auto body shop before and I was SUPER anxious about finding a reputable one. We've all heard horror stories. I am so glad I went to Leading Edge (based on Yelp reviews, actually). Jeff gave me an estimate quickly, worked efficiently with my insurance company adjuster to agree on a price, and answered all of my questions. And even though it was right around Thanksgiving and they were swamped, the work got done efficiently. One thing that really made me feel I'd put my car in good hands was while I was in the waiting room getting my estimate, an elderly woman came in and said her brake light was out. She wanted to know when she could schedule a fix and sounded really worried about having to be without her car for a day. Jeff offered to swap out the bulb right then and there if she had a few minutes to spare, for about ten bucks. You just don't see easygoing, friendly customer service like that anymore! Little things like that make me feel good about giving them my business. My good opinion of them was further affirmed when I picked up my car. The repair and paint job look flawless - my baby was back to her old self! The color matching and pin stripe look great (and I'm super fussy about that, since the orange pearl color is a big part of what drew me to that car in the first place). I sort of hope I don't need to go back to Leading Edge, since that would mean my car has been knocked around. But if I'm ever in that unfortunate position again, I will go back here, no question.

Exclusive Motor Cars
"I purchased my 2012 X5 BMW from Exclusive Motors and it was the best car buying experience I have ever had. They took away all the stress and hassle that comes with purchasing a vehicle. When a friend referred them to me I called in to see how they could help. My call was received by them and in our conversation I told him exactly what I was looking for. He did not have what I was wanted in his lot but almost immediately they were able to locate several options for me to choose from all of which met my requirements. Once I decided on a vehicle their all-inclusive service took care of EVERYTHING else. All I had to do was come into the dealership to pick up my car and sign on the dotted line. Financing, inspection, registration and titling was all handled by the company saving me a time consuming trip to the bank and that dreaded trip to motor vehicle administration (MVA). What I appreciated most about the transaction was the transparency and responsiveness throughout. They were very professional, detailed and relayed all the information I needed to be aware of. There was no fine print or disclaimer that caught me off guard at the last moment. They were always a phone call away and reached out to me promptly anytime new information concerning my purchase became available. T hey kept me informed every step of the way. Within a week I had a new vehicle that I was exceptionally happy with. If you are in the market for a new car and are looking for exceptional all-inclusive experience with great customer service I definitely recommend using Exclusive Motors in Baltimore MD."

Mt Washington Autohaus
I have taken my cars to Brian for ~15 years.Brian is a certified airplane mechanic and by extension and most likely has forgotten more about cars than most mechanics will ever know.Brian's personal and professional integrity, professional competence and delivery of service is beyond reproach.Brian's expert mechanics, Dan and Rich are incredible in their own rights.Brian, usually at my insistence, checks every little noise or vibration, even outside my cars' regular maintenance schedule to help me "stay ahead of the maintenance and cost curve." As a result, my expenses in maintaining a 1988 Volvo 740 GLE, amortized over the years have been ~$100/month. That translates into ~1/4 of a typical car payment. My vigilance through Brian's care an careful monitoring of my vehicles has saved me the cost of at least two new cars, resulting in my 1988 currently boasting ~445K miles.Brian, realizing that I needed new seats took the time to research a source of nearly new seats to match the interior of my car. He located, acquired, and installed them, obviously saving my back, and ensuring the nearly pristine quality of my trusty steed's cargo bay.I have no idea what I will do if Brian closes his Mt. Washington Autohaus; == Woe unto us. I truly worry about finding as honest, competent, knowledgeable, resourceful, and fairly priced mechanical prize as he with Dan and Rich.

Leading Edge AutoBody & Mechanical Repair
My entire family (4 vehicles) have been using Leading Edge for all of our mechanical and body repair needs for the last 10 years. I recently had them detail my daughters 2008 Honda Accord and when I got it back it didn’t look like the same car. I literally didn’t recognize it. The wax job made it look like a new car, then I opened it and the interior was spotless and smelled fantastic.I am always confident that I can leave any of our vehicles with them and they will do what is right and not over charge for their services. On a prior visit, my daughter was having problems with her air conditioning not operating. Jeff had his Technician diagnosis the problem and told me it needed a relay replaced. We got the car back the next day and he only charged my daughter for the part cost. Any other facility would have charged at least one hour diagnostic time and then time to access and install the relay.I am a retired Auto Insurance Damage Appraiser of 27 years and can honestly say that this type of business etiquette is extremely rare, if not almost extinct. Jeff, Anthony, Ryan & his entire staff have obviously worked very hard to earn the A+ rating at the BBB, and it’s well deserved. R.L.H. (Baltimore,Md)

Reality Auto Sales
I was recommended this place by a friend who bought a couple of car from Reality Sales and told me they were good. So I called in, spoke to one of the sales guy and I filled out their online application.They took 1 day in getting back to me (I had to call a few times) but they finally called me and asked me to come in. I sat down with one of the bank guys, a bigger guy named Juan, who talked to me about my job, my income, the cars I was interested in and he told me what my options were, because of my credit, which was in the dumps.After 30 minutes or so, he found me a me an approval with a company called ACE Motors. The payments are good, I have GAP Insurance, a 36 month vehicle warranty and the car is running good! No complaints after 8 months.Overall, I had a very good experience. The two ladies they have there were really nice, very friendly and when I wanted my radio fixed (CD player wasn't really working), they helped me find a place to help me do that. In the end, I'm very happy with my car, very happy with how they took care of me. A positive buying experience, after several that have not been so positive.

Leading Edge AutoBody & Mechanical Repair
Ok so no one likes to go to the body shop because that means something bad happened to their car and they also know that as soon as they walk in they can just watch their money fly out of their wallets.Well yesterday I got into a fender bender when a guy hit me during a rain storm and then drove away. My back fender was bent in and also coming off the side of the car.I went into Leading Edge this morning around 8 and they told me that it would cost around $50, but they'd have it done within the hour. I walked to Starbucks next door and when I came back it looked like nothing had even happened to my car.They blew back out the back and put the fender back in place perfectly!When I went in to go and pay they didn't even charge me and just sent me on my way! I would suggest Leading Edge to anyone they were super friendly, fast, and obviously inexpensive! If you're in Baltimore with a car problem I wouldn't go anywhere else!!!

Reality Auto Sales
I definitely have a positive sales experience, I've had some very bad experiences with buying cars (new and used) but Reality was totally different. I did my research and saw the SUV I wanted and Alex handed me the key and let me test drive it. There was no pressure and no haggling over the price which was good. And I was able to look up the AutoCheck report on the truck and everything before making a decision. They never pressured me to get a certain vehicle and I was in control of my decision instead of the other way around. As with the past times that I've bought a car, there is a lot of paper work and it tends to take a few hours to complete the process but that is to be expected Juan was very friendly and touched based on everything in the contract with me. Overall I'm very pleased I went to Reality Auto Sales it is a great place to find a dependable car at a reasonable price.

A1 Auto Three Brothers Car Repair
I took my car into A1 Auto Three Brothers today to get my brakes changed. The owner Paul was very patient with me and explained what exactly i needed done. I have been taking my car here for years and the parts and service he provides is far beyond my expectations and beats the price I pay at the acura dealership.I waited for my car, drank some coffee and was able to get work done on my computer by using there free wifi. It was done before I knew it!The mechanic even found flaws in my wheel locks that the dealer had been stripping for months. This would have been horrible to have been caught on the side of the road with no working wheel locks. I actually took the car back to the dealership to show them this mistake and they providing new wheel locks that three brothers later replaced. Do not waste your time going to any dealer- go to three brothers!

Auto Stop Limited, Inc.
I am a new customer of Auto Stop, and very glad I decided to try this local repair shop. I had gone to another auto repair shop when my car started having transmission issues, but they could not diagnose the problem. They estimated it would cost nearly a thousand dollars to perform the exploratory car surgery that my Honda required, so I decided to get a second opinion to see if I could get a better deal elsewhere. When I went to Auto Stop, they found the source of the problem almost immediately- rats were chewing the wires in my car, which Auto Stop quickly replaced. It happened again not more than a week later, and as a courtesy they replaced the part free of charge. This business has saved me a great deal of money, and the service was done much more quickly than I expected. I'll be taking my car here from now on!

Mt Washington Autohaus
I've been a customer of Mt. Washington Autohaus since 1994 and will be forever. Brian, the owner, and his two assistants are superior. Over the years I've had four different cars worked on there. The don't fix cars just to get it done and collect a bill, Instead, they tell you what's really needed to actually fix the problem. If they don't think they can fix it right, they tell you and suggest another car repair facility. Some people get put off by that, but I'd rather be treated in an honest fashion. Like the professionals they are, I've observed them regularly confer with one another on a job, to be sure they got it right. The prices seem in line with what I hear and see others charge, but I really don't know since it's been so long since I've been elsewhere.
Tips & Advices
Using a variety of tools and processes, many of which require specialized training, auto body mechanics primarily repair cosmetic and structural damage to vehicles after accidents occur. They can also enhance a vehicle’s appearance and performance by replacing and adding new parts to a vehicle’s body.
This depends on the severity of the work that needs to be done. Something such as paintless dent repair for a few small dents can take an hour. Whereas auto body repairs for damages caused by a major accident can take multiple days to correct.
All auto body parts can be repaired but there is a threshold for the level of repairs possible. Parts can be damaged beyond repair and would need to be wholly replaced.
Auto body parts can be made from a wide variety of materials, usually based on what the part’s purpose is. Vehicle frames body panels, bumpers, roof racks, and other items that need to be strong and durable are usually constructed from steel, which is known for its durability and resistance to rust and high temperatures. But aluminum is quickly becoming a popular material of construction due to its lightweight yet durable nature. Body kits and other aftermarket parts like spoilers and hoods can be constructed from one form of plastic or another.
Yes, the vast majority of car makes and models have aftermarket parts available for many of their components. But higher-end vehicles typically have less aftermarket parts available since they often use specialized materials and manufacturing processes that are difficult to duplicate for many aftermarket manufacturers.
