Brian's Automotive
I can't believe anyone had a bad experience at Brian Automotive. I noticed one of the reviews said you must be a relative to give Brian a good review. I want everyone reading this review to know that I am not a relative and I am an Afro-American female. I have used Brian twice now and each time he called me throughout the process to give updates and asking my permission before fixing anything!I own a SAAB 93 and I called five mechanic shops around the Canton area to explain that there was a loud noise coming from the right side of my car near the front tire. I made the decision to choose Brian based off his knowledge about my SAAB. He asked me direct questions over the phone about the type of car I was driving. He asked if my engine was turbo and if I did not know he could tell me by using my vin number. For example...not sure if I have the number right, but he said if there is a number 4 after the Y then it is turbo. (You get the point.). I told him the dealership said it was a timing belt problem. Brian explained some SAABs were built with timing belts and some with timing chains depending on the year it was built. He did all this on the first initial phone conversation without looking at my car. The other mechanics I called all needed to look up the information and call me back later with their findings.Originally, I took my car to a local dealership and was told that my car would not last another two weeks if I did not change the belt. The replacement would cost me about $2,300.00 and some additional cosmetic work I wanted done would cost about $5,000.00 dollars total. I decided to save my money and try Brian's Automotive since my car is no longer under warranty. Once Brian looked at the car he called me and said sometimes a good cleaning detergent can clean out the junk that builds up in a car engine. He said he needed to do an oil change too. I had the dealership do an oil change and the noise was still there so I was reluctant to have the procedure done again. Anyway, I decided to trust Brian and I am glad I did because I no longer hear the noise, my car is running fine and I did not have to replace my timing belt. Plus, its been 4 months since the dealership said my car would stop working after two weeks.Brian told me the minute I have to start putting to much money into my car he would tell me to get rid of my car first and I believe him. As long as I own my car I will continue to go to Brian Automotive. Highly Recommend!

Waterloo Transmission
There is no doubt in my mind that Waterloo is the best place in the Northeast Ohio region to have a transmission replaced or rebuilt. I took a vehicle to them a few years ago and had the transmission rebuilt and have had no major problems with it. Yes it has had a few leaks but thankfully for the 3 year 100,000 mile warranty I bought it has been covered with no hassle. I want to stress the "no hassle" I've had no issues what so ever taking it to them and saying "hey there is a small leak". Waterloo also a few years ago fixed an issue that was causing the engine to jerk at high speeds it was one corroded wire, took some time to find it but there wasn't another company that was able to find / fix the issue. Ask for Andy, the man knows what he's talking about and just a great person to deal with.

Brian's Automotive
I had a wonderful experience at Brian's Automotive, we have a 2001 Saab Station wagon and we wouldn't take it anywhere else. Brian is well educated with the Saab and their sometimes extra special needs. He was honest and totally kept us in the loop about what we actually needed to repair and didn't try to talk us into a bunch of extra stuff and focusing on the main problems. I have been to so many places where they try to get you for every little thing and that was not that case what so ever at Brian's. I feel like it was clean and professional and will be taking our car there soon, I would and do recommend it. I usually don't write these types of things but was really impressed by our service and hope you give it a try and have wonderful service like we did.

My experience here was so great!!! It's clean, has a.c., & saw me right away even without appointment. Good prices & fast service means I'll definitely be back! The manager Kane is hard working, intelligent, honest, and kind. The mechanics work fast and I'm so happy with my decision to come here. I've had some horrible experiences with auto places, but here I was so comfortable and treated with such respect and not pressured at all! Thank you :))

Brian worked on my car about 6 months ago. I had an electrical issue that could not be located by any other shop in the area. Brian found the problem and made the repair at a reasonable price. He stayed in touch with me throughout the process and I couldn't be happier. I thought I was going to have to get a new car!!! I highly recommend Brian's Automotive.

Great price and service. Called and talked to Dave and he handled everything. Great to deal with a local company.
Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
