Schatz & Krum Independent Auto Service
Shatz and krum is the one shop I trust to work on my bimmer here in sacramento. Staff are very professional and honest, good quality of service, they know what they're doing. I brought my m3 5 years ago with a bad head and got it back on the road, and now they've worked on my 325i with missed fire on one cylinder, coolant leak (came out i just had a loose plug). They fixed the ratteling noise under my car with just paying the price of the part and didn't charge me anything for labor (said it only took them 5 mins to bolt on), very straight forward, no BS

Thanks for bringing the joy back to driving my MINI!! I recently took my 2006 MINI cooper in to have a noise issue looked at. turns out the transmission had a bad bearing (covered under extended warranty) while they were in the process of doing the transmission I had them do all other recommended work while the transmission was out. new clutch, water pump, rear main seal...... Anyway since the transmission was covered the additional work was performed at an extremely reasonable price since most of it had to be removed anyway. Upon receiving my car back, I noticed a noise which I though was the original noise I had taken it in for. I took the car back and was in a disagreement with the mechanic who performed the work, I was 100% positive it was the same noise, he was certain it was not. I left the car overnight and was called the next day with the diagnosis, turns out I was wrong. It was another noise entirely but being the professionals they are, they made the repair and charged me for parts only. I am completely satisfied with their customer service and professionalism and would highly recommend this shop to anyone with a BMW, MINI, or Porsche.

Excellent shop for Porsche and BMW service! I have had both of my cars worked on here and they have always treated me with absolute professionalism and their prices are far better than the dealer.

Just serviced my 04 Mini Cooper S. I had a leaky oil pan, gasket head, cracked internal CV boots and a broken window regulator. The folks there are friendly and professional. They really know their BMWs, Porches and MINIs. Prices are fair and service is solid. I'm definitely making SCHATZ n KRUM my primary mechanic.

I have to say Schatz & Krum has always proven to be one of the most honest and reliable sources I've had for my BMW. They've taking care of numerous things over the last couple of years and compared to Roseville BMW and other auto shops at half the cost. I trust when they say it's needs to be taken care of, it really does.Thank you guys !!

Professional staff, fantastic service. I have taken my BMW in to several Sacramento-Area shops, and Schatz & Krum is hands-down the best. They are efficient, reasonably priced, and stand by their work. Couldn't be happier!

They have sent me a wrong part. The original sticker was covered with a sticker that matched the part that I bought. Eventually, the part didn't match and I have to buy the same part again. I am glad that these scammers closed their business.

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.
