Lewis Body Shop Inc
I am restoring a 1956 Pontiac and when it came time to get it painted I researched and called and even drove out to every single reputable body shop in El Paso. There are few things in this world that you get exactly what you pay for but paint and body work is one of those things. After looking at all the "cheap" paint and body shops around I found out that the work and finish looked just that, CHEAP. Then I started talking to local guys here at the car shows and one name kept coming up LEWIS. The price was reasonable and the staff was nice and helpful. I was still a little apprehensive when I dropped off my baby but I shouldn't have been. These guys are professionals all the way. My 56 was parked between a 69 firebird and a 45 Chevy truck, if that tells you anything about the clients who trust this place. These guys are no joke. My car looks like a million dollar show winner! If they can make a 58 year old rust bucket look like a show car they can surely paint your 2 year old Honda. To summarize, the price was not the most expensive that I was quoted around town but not the cheapest either. The body work is PERFECT and the paint shines like new money and lays flat as glass. If you care about your car go here if you care about scamming the insurance company by finding the cheapest paint job around go somewhere else. BTW go to their facebook page and look at my car and see for yourself... its the green one!

Moroni's BMW Specialists
I just moved to the area and my 750li showed a transmission fail safe and my vehicle refused to accelerate. After speaking to the local bmw dealership and getting the worst customer service imaginable not to mention an outrageous quote on a new transmission that they insisted I had to have. I read a few reviews in here and headed to maroni's. First thing first I explained my problem on the phone and received an estimate based on my description. Came in the next day and out comes maroni himself this guy is very personable and extremely knowledgable. He explained what he thought the problem was and made sure I knew what he meant and went to work on the issue immediately. I picked up my vehicle a few days later and he explained what he had done and said he suspected another issue as the culprit and to bring it back if the light shows again. Unfortunately a few days later it showed again so I bought it back he went back to work on it. The guys in this shop know their stuff they kept In touch and researched the issue in depth the two days later they called and told me "I got it" turns out it was an issue that the dealership had no idea how to fix ordered the piece at no extra charge my car now drives like day one. This is where you want to be if you have an import I wont let anyone else service my vehicle from now on.

Rudolph Volkswagen Servce
I TRAVELED FROM GRAPEVIBE, TEXAS TO EL PASO ON MY 2012 GTI ON JUNE 20TH, 2015. JUST WHEN I ARRIVED TO EL PASO, TX I NOTICED THAT MY VEHICLE WAS ACTING FUNNY, IT WAS STALLING WHILE I WAS DRIVNG AND WHEN I WAS AT A STOP. I BARELY MADE IT HOME SO I SPENT THE NIGHT LOOKING FOR THE REVIEWS ON LINE ABOUT RUDULPH VOLKSWAGEN. THE REVIEWS WERE EXCELLENT, SO I DECIDED TO TAKE MY VEHICKE THERE.MY SERVICE ADVISOR ALEX HATORILLA PROVIDED ME WITH THE MOST AMAIZING CUSTOMER SERVICE IN THE WORLD. SHE DEALT WITH EVERYTHING FOR ME, FROM THE EXTENDED WARRANTY, RENTAL, ALL THE WAY TO MAKE SURE MY VEHICLE WAS DELIVERED ON TIME FOR MY TRIP BACK TO GRAPEVINE, TEXAS. THE MASTER MECHANIC JHON ANSELL WAS SO PROFESIONAL TO THE POINT WHERE HE SAID "I WOULD STAY LATE IF I HAVE TO TO MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE ON TIME ON THURSDAY"I AM JUST SO GLAD AND CONTENT WITH THIS EXPERIENCE THAT I HAD TO SHARE IT WITH EVERYBODY OUT THERE, AND WOULD LIKE TO ADD THAT THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT HERE "BENT OVER BACKWORDS" TO HELP ME AND MY FAMILY TAKE OUR TRIP BACK ON TIME FOR ME TO GO BACK TO WORK.I GUESS THIS IS ONLY ONE REASON WHY RUDOLPH VOLKSWGEN IS THE NUMBER 1 SERVICE DEPARTMET IN THE NATION.THANK YOU VERY MUCH ON BEHALF OF AND FAMILY AND I.

Lenchos mufflers
I have taken my Altima 2004 to Lencho Mufflers on three nonrelated occasions. Lencho's has repaired the exhaust system, placed 4 new tires, replaced front brake pads and performed some engine work to ensure a smooth quiet ride. Each time he insured that the work was completed in a timely fashion and the bill was fairly priced manner. That is why he got a First Class rating and why I returned to his shop to repair or replace the transmission on Sep. 18, 2017. As of today Sep 30.(a Friday again) I have yet to get my car back. Not even a phone call or text informing me that the auto is either ready or why it is no ready. Twice in two weeks after work, I had a co-worker drive me to Lencho's so I could pay and get my car back. Twice I was told by Mr. Lencho it was not quite ready but he would have it ready by the next day (Saturday). He even stated he would call the moment it was READY. He has yet to call today and failed to call on previous occasions. Why such a downturn in service and pricing (btw). Once this situation is resolved I will write the review for this 4th encounter, I hope it comes to satisfactory conclusion. Stay Tuned my fellow vets and active-duty SOLDATS. SOLDIERS.

J & H Collision
Took my vehicle Into this place since my insurance had it on its list, I should've reviewed this place a bit more before choosing this place to repair the body of my car. At first the staff was friendly and curteous, after 5 months my vehicle was still "being worked on" finally it was ready and they left it horribly dirty, and it was noticeable that they used dw40 to wipe the interior off with dust, I would literally feel light headed as I was driving my car, then after a few weeks the trim on the outside was coming off, and some interior parts were coming loose so I had to take it again to get it fixed, after about another week the same problem started happening, I was sick of dealing with these people already so I repaired it myself, now 3 months later I go on a road trip with my family and notice that wind comes through the side windows and on top of that it rained and water came through the cracks. So I had to take it in once more and talked to one of the owners and he had the nerve to blame it On cars make, I was not having any problems with my vehicle before they worked on it. Pick somewhere else to have your vehicle repaired. These people are just money hungry.

Awesome Job!!! First of all, I had never done business with this shop in the past, until about two weeks ago. I am one of those people that dont go to a mechanic that is not recommended, but my transmission was in need of a complicated repair and I knew it had to be some one certified, that way it would be worth spending the money. I went by the reviews the shop has online, everything I could find. I could not find a dispute unresolved. So I went for it, they offered a fair price for the repair, kept me updated. When I went to pick up my SUV, Johnny (the owner) showed me the parts that were replaced. Excellent customer service. After I picked up my SUV, when I came home I noticed a wired noise, I took it back the next day, and Johnny checked it out right away. They replaced the part that needed to be changed with no extra charge. He said so him self "if its something we did, we will take care of it." and he did just that. Not only that but the warranty I got on my rebuilt transmission is good for one year and valid nation wide, so this was a good investment. So overall, a job well done!!

Texican Transmissions & Motors.
I was visiting El Paso for a week. I found myself dealing with a dead Corolla 2 days before my return trip to Utah. I suspected a starter as the battery voltage was perfect. I was sorta in a pickle. I picked this business ONLY because he was close to me. Just a shot in the dark. I researched them a little beforehand on the BBB and saw an A+ rating, so I had the car towed there and crossed my fingers. Well, the owner Johnny called a couple hours after my car was delivered to him, and confirmed yes it was a dead starter. He told me a price, which I later confirmed by phoning a Toyota dealer, was LESS than half of a quote from a dealership in El Paso. He said it would be done the next day, and even offered to bring the car back to me. I was able to get a ride there the next day after he called again telling me it was finished and the quoted price was exactly what I paid. LESS than 24 hours and he was done with it! Johnny was very professional, and very nice. I may never need a mechanic in El Paso again, but if I do, I won't go anywhere else. Overall a very fast and fair deal. He saved my cookies!

Lenchos mufflers
I went to Mr. Lencho's shop on three previous occasions and came away quite satisfied. He repaired my exhaust/muffler (hole), replaced wheel bearings, corrected front end motor noise and replaced my front brakes. All repairs were finished in a timely manner and the price never wavered from his estimate. For these reason, I decided to have him repair or replace my tranny. I received reports from friends who travel by his shop that my car has not moved from where I parked it for at least the first week and they just started replacing the tranny on the very day(Friday) he assured me it would be ready. Although the owner says my car will be ready manana (Saturday 30th), I doubt it because he said the same thing LAST FRIDAY. I will await the return of my auto before I give my review and I will stick to the timeline and the facts as they occurred. You be the judge. I hope to write a positive review, soon! Please bear in mind I gave him a First Class rating because it was well deserved and based on my first three visits. Stay Tuned!

Just a great "First-Class" shop!I took my Volkswagen Jetta into this place to have the transmission replaced along with the clutch and some other things. I can honestly say I have finally found a shop who does things right!From start to finish, the pricing was fair and straightforward, no surprises during the process... just a "good and honest" place!The work was performed right on time, a day early to be specific. Not a single flaw in their work.They took the time to explain everything beforehand, I was very comfortable from the get go all the way through!Thank you to Patrick, Mike and Bill and to the rest of your team! You all were truly courteous to do business with... you're really doing things right!I've already recommended others with absolute confidence and I will continue to spread the word. I could not be anymore satisfied!It's never fun taking your vehicle to a mechanic shop to begin with, Tinkertoy is about as easy as it can be.Absolutely 100% Recommended!
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.
