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.

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!

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.

Baltimore Collision Centers
This is the second time I took my Honda to Baltimore Collision Center. The first time I ripped a third of my bumper off, and instead of replacing the entire bumper (which I didn't want to do) they did an amazing job reattaching and the cost was shockingly inexpensive. The second time, (yes, I tore it up again!) they fixed it at NO CHARGE!!!!! within 5 minutes. Eventually, i will have to replace the bumper, and they will be the place I take my car to. Can't say enough about how friendly, reasonable, and quality of their service is.

A1 Auto Three Brothers Car Repair
Great Service! They show you exactly whats wrong, explain to you what the repairs are for, etc. Very exceptional customer service. If they make a mistake, rather than telling you your car was broke they will let you know what happened and do everything in their power to make it right. Honest, friendly, and hard working, you don't see these guys sitting around doing nothing on your time! I live about 30 minutes away but still come all the way here for the trustworthy service. Look no further, finally a repair shop you can trust!

The Mobile Mechanic
These guys are awesome. They've helped me out multiple times so now I don't bother with most mechanics since I don't want to waste my time in their dingy, loud waiting rooms for hours. These guys are pros, they come in all kind of weather, fix the issue, and don't play around with prices. So convenient, especially considering I don't have to alter my schedule to get oil changes, brakes, or even major repairs when things go bad with my civic.

The Mobile Mechanic
I contacted Mobile Mechanics and spoken with Eli, who was very professional and knowledgeable of the issues with my vehicles. Surprisingly was able to schedule an appt on Sunday and he arrived, promptly took care of my problem. Eli was again very professional and courteous and I definitely will be using Mobile Mechanics again as well as referring them to family and friends. Thanks Eli and I look forward to doing business with you again!!

Buck's Auto Service
I have been trusting this auto shop with my cars for over ten years. Bucks is fast, efficient and most of all honest. If it's not worth fixing he won't pretend it is. I have been to many auto shops and have had guys try to take advantage of my situation maybe because I'm a woman. I've never had that experience with them. The only other place I used to go was McDowell auto garage but now that he is closed Bucks is the only place I go.

Mt Washington Autohaus
I totally recommend everyone to go to Mt Washington Autohaus. I was extremely impressed with the work, the cost and the great mechanics. I was informed of the cost up front and the work was done quickly and accurately. The owner of the shop really cares about his customers and getting their vehicles back on the road. All the mechanics are very knowledgeable and helpful. It was worth every buck!

Baltimore Collision Centers
I utilized Baltimore Collision Center and just picked up my car this afternoon. Wow. The work was phenomenal and the price was right. If you want it done right, choose Baltimore Collision Center not just for he excellent workmanship but for the very clean work areas, the courteous staff, and the attention to detail. I will definitely be using these guys again!
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
