Benz Unlimited
Several weeks ago, during terrible weather, the wiper motor went on my ML320. I was grocery shopping with my kids at the time and had to have my husband come pick me up, leaving my car in the parking lot. This happened on a late Sunday afternoon. My husband went online when we got home to look up repair shops in the area, we’re relatively new to Indy, and he came across Benz Unlimited. He called to leave a message (because it was a Sunday) however, John answered. John took the time to troubleshoot the problem over the phone, determining it was most likely the wiper motor. My husband asked how quickly he could get my car in John said he would be able to get my car in the following day after business hours. The next morning, we received an itemized, easy to read estimate from John. Over the course of the day, my husband did contact the dealership for an estimate and after a several hour wait, we received an estimate that was exponentially higher than John’s and was somewhat vague. Needless to say, we were sold on going to John and after work, we dropped my car off. We got stuck in heavy traffic on the way and were concerned about missing our appointment time. We called John and he was more than understanding. Once we arrived, we met John. He was extremely polite, professional and knowledgeable. We were impressed with his overall shop appearance and cleanliness. John said he would try to have my car done as early as possible the next day. Much to my relief, he called me mid morning the next day, telling me my car was ready to be picked up. I had a rental car and told John I needed to drop that off first and take a taxi to his shop to pick my car up so I was unsure how long I would be. John was nice enough to offer me a ride to drop off the rental, which saved me even more money on the cab fare J Also, John did look my car over for anything else it might need, free of charge. He gave me a heads up on a few things but it wasn’t a pushy, sales pitch. More of an FYI for down the road. I will absolutely be returning to John when I am a bit more down the road for any and all of my service needs. Thank you again for your prompt help, kindness, and most importantly, honesty! Taisha W.

Benz Unlimited
After some confusion on the correct business address (it was a YP.com issue) and being told by a gentleman that "benz unlimited did not exsist, and he had no idea where benz unlimited had gone"........ I just simply went to the business website (which is www.benzunlimited.com), and I am sure glad that I did!! After a brief explanation from John (the owner) about the address confusion we got down to business. I have a 2004 E 500, and was quoted from serveral shops (including the dealership) an astronomical price for a full brake job, service B, and a brake fluid flush. Once John examined my car, he went over every single detail of what needed to be done and why. This is something I do not believe I have ever encountered before!! Not only did I instantly feel that John was not only an expert when it comes to Mercedes, but was unbelievably less than ANYONE I had look the car over!! The estimate for repairs that I received from Benz Unlimited was so much less, that I asked on the spot if I could leave the car with John, so he could possibly finish my car by the next day. Johns response " I will have you all set today by 5!! Everybody else was a day to 2 days before I would have my beloved Mercedes back (including the dealer as they were not even taking appointments for this particular week???? Upon picking up my car at 5 p.m. John once again went over everything he did, showed me all my old parts, and verified that all replacements were in fact Mercedes Benz Original parts, not some cheap knock off parts. I could not be more pleased with my experience with John and Benz Unlimited. It is my honest advise, that if you are a Mercedes owner, and am tired of paying the high prices for basic service, or major repairs, please take my word, GO SEE JOHN!!

Whoosier Tom
I work for Johnson & Johnson in Indianapolis and my lease was up on my company vehicle and was instructed to return it to Hoosier Tom to be inspected. I met with Brian and Mr Phipps who asked me to walk around the vehicle with them for the inspection in order to verify any defects upon their findings. It took less than 5-minutes and they gave me a complimentary cup of coffee and a ride to the Tom O'Brien Toyota in order to pick up my new company car. My husband and I loved my company vehicle that we turned in even though I had put over 100,000 miles on it in less than 2 1/2 years and decided to get something like it as a second vehicle (2009 Volvo XC70). I thought it was worth a shot so inquired about how they would be disposing of the one I returned. They explained the process and I asked if I could buy it from them before it was sold to a dealer. They sold it to me for the exact same price that was offered by the dealership it was going to be sold to in Columbus Ohio. A week after I bought it, I took it to Carmax for an appraisal since we were eating across the street and they offered $300.00 more for it than we had paid Hoosier Tom for it. I am thrilled to find out that there was another way to buy second hand cars other than Dealerships and Classified ads. Hoosier Tom encouraged me to post this review and I was delighted with the overall experience with Hoosier Tom!Jeanie Long

Neighborhood Auto Repair
Just picked up my'02 Monte Carlo SS After they made many repairs. The lady in the office really knows what she's talking about. They replaced my intake manifold and gaskets, o2 sensors, maf sensor,map sensor, had the exhaust repaired, replaced both hinges in my driver side door , multi function switch and Power steering pump. They did all this in 1 week. And charged me a third of what the dealer and 2 other garages quoted. Plus a few more items. My car and I are now happy after having multiple mallfunction lights on for over a year . I looked at reviews of this small 2 stall garage and decided to let them work on my car. Mind you I have been a mechanic for over 30 years to include 10 plus years as a jet engine mechanic on F15 fighters in the US Air Force. I could not be more pleased with the professional communication of the staff. They were informative, as to what was wrong with my car. I knew going on it was a hog of a car to bring back to life. They fixed it, and did it right. So for all the nasty reviews I have seen, they must not have cared to spend the money to have it done right. I highly recommend this small locally owned business to work on your cars and trucks.

Allied Hail Repair & Collision
I have taken my car to Dean Allen initially for hail repair. Then has to take it back a few months later for some damage done to the front bumper. They repaired it and a month or so later the clear coat finish started peeling off. At first just little places. Stopped by with my car and had one of his guys look at it which he told me that it was just from "rocks" hitting it. A week later I took it back in after seeing that the little supposed rock hittings were now huge places on my front bumper. At which time another guy looked at it and said that it was NOT from rocks that it was what I initially thought it was, the clear coat peeling off and that it WAS their fault and would take care of it. I have been trying to get them (Dean Allen, owner) to fix my bumber for almost 6 months now. My first text from Dean is dated Mar 31. My last text I sent him is dated Aug 18 to which he still has not replied to. And this is the way HE runs his business. I really believe he is a true blue con. Insurance companies need to be on the lookout for him. I've given him sooooooi many opportunities to do right, to which he hasn't jumped on any of them. What to do now? Because HE IS NOT gonna do right by me!!

Sharps Automotive
I was recommended to bring my car to Sharps by a friend of mine. I ran into several mechanical issues with my car that needed immediate attention. Dustin, shop tech assisted In everyway possible, both over the phone as well as inside the shop. I was a bit unfamiliar with the area ( being as that i just recently moved to Indy area) but Dustin guided me to their shop no problem. He even recommended some alternatives for me In which helped save me money. After getting to the shop, Dustin and his Manager assessed the damages and quoted me a price that was more than comparable but truly unbelievable. They have a great business, business professionalism and are GREAT people. I have been to quite a few shops in my life but never one that made things more possible and accommodating than Sharps. Things they've done, will never go unnoticed. They have my business and is within no doubt, they would earn yours!! I'm not a paid script actor, i didn't receive money for putting up this review, i gain noting but respect for good business from guys like this!!

Church Brothers Collision Repair
Absolutely the best customer service I have ever received in my life. Michelle was amazing and keeping me up to date in what was going on with my car. She was extremely knowledgeable on the parts of the car being replaced, answered all questions, and even made sure I was up to date on the repairs while she was on vacation.There was one small glitch in the repair that I found a week after getting the car back. In my frustration, I posted on Facebook since it was late at night and there was no option to call the store. Church Brothers found the post, proactively made contact with me the next day that they were open, took a 2nd look at the car, and did everything they could to make sure I was satisfied with their repairs and service I had received. They stand by their work, and will do everything they can to ensure that the repairs are flawless. With all of the stress from being in a not-at-fault accident, Church Brothers helped ease that stress so much. I will always take my car to Church Brothers for future collision repairs.

plus locksmith Indianapolis
On January third I called your company to inquire about your services. My car key had broken off in my ignition. After stopping by my electrical mechanic's place -he told me he would have to order a new ignition from Toyota and this would tie my car up for a day. I mentioned to him that perhaps a locksmith could be of help for me. He said by all means check it out. He quoted me $200.00 for him to service my car. Since I could still start my car, I decided to go on to work and call your company from there. I did and Dave came out and couldn't have been more courteous, efficient, and professional and knew what he was doing! In less than one hour the job was done! I felt very confident with his work. The technician you sent me couldn't have restored my faith in the unknowing any better! Dave, I'm sure, is a delight for you have in your service and for customers. Thank you so much for being a professional and efficient service. Good service is hard to find today.

Benz Unlimited
Just saw there add and checked out there website, decided to give them a call reguarding my 2009 GL550 as i recently had another shop (not dealer) perform repairs. My check engine light came on this a.m. and as it turns out, they are located very close to my office in Avon. Before John & I even discussed a time to bring it in or any kind of estimate he simply asked if i recently fueled the vehicle.....(I did this a.m). He simply told me to look at the gas cap and see if it were secured, It wasn't! he informed me to secure my gas cap and drive approx 50 miles, shut it off, & restart it......IT WORKED! Anyone else would have charged me $90-$120 diagnostic fee for what was explained as a 5 min. procedure to simply erase a code. Needless to say I will be seeing John in the future for all My GL's needs

Mechanically Inclined Auto
I am skeptical of every service garage I encounter, but Mechanically inclined has earned my trust and I use them for routine maintenance and repairs for all of my vehicles. They have even become my mechanic of choice for my one owner, prized historic vehicle. I have had numerous experiences where they have checked my vehicle and told me I DIDN'T need something I assumed I did. THAT'S integrity and honesty. They have a great reputation in our community, and it's obvious why when the work done on my vehicles is completed as promised, without shortcuts or a budget busting cost. I love this place and the folks who work there! They deserve every single star this rating offers. Would give them more if I could. I recommend them to everyone!
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.
