I recently went to bahrs for the first time with a over heating problem. I have been to several mechanics to no avail could anyone figure out what was going on. the service writer had a mechanic come out to my car and he figured out that it was the water pump just by holding his hands on the hoses. with no appointment he brought my car in and they gave me a ride home. my car was fixed by the next morning. i wanted to write this review for a few reasons. i was blown away at just how clean and organized the shop was, my car was cleaned when i picked it up, they gave me a ride home, fixed my car with no appointment, and gave me a great warranty which ive never been offered before from any other garage. i am very thankful to them for all that they did. they have gained my business for life. i hope someday they read this and feel proud of the great business they have built.

RECENTLY, WHILE TRAVELING IN NORTHWEST CONNECTICUT, WE HAD SOME TROUBLE WITH OUR 2008 CHEVY SILVERADO. I MANAGED TO GET MY VEHICLE TO BAHR AUTO REPAIR IN TORRINGTON, ON THE RECOMMENDATION OF A LOCAL RESIDENT. THE FOLKS AT BAHR AUTO FIXED US UP STRAIGHT AWAY, AT A REASONABLE COST, TOO. ED BAHR SEEMS TO BE A FIRST-RATE MECHANIC, AND HE AND THE ENTIRE STAFF THERE WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY TO MAKE US COMFORTABLE WHILE WE WAITED FOR THE REPAIRS TO BE DONE. WE ARE BACK IN FLORIDA NOW. IF I LIVED IN THE TORRINGTON AREA, I WOULD BE A REGULAR CUSTOMER THERE. THANKS, BAHR AUTO REPAIR!

I have taken my car to Bahr Auto for almost 10 years. Ed is an extremely knowledgable and thorough mechanic. He cares about his customers and takes the time to explain what is wrong with my car and what needs to be done to fix it. His wife Kim is always cheerful and you can tell she loves coming to work everyday! I highly recommend Bahr Auto! They do emissions too!

Very excited about Bahre! Took a chance on a facebook post and brought my honda to them. The bill came out less than what the originally quoted...I ALMOST FELL ON THE FLOOR!! I have never seen that before. saved 10 percent on the bill ontop of the saving for being a AAA member. I will be back again!

My 1999 Blazer had a chronic anti-freeze leak. The staff at Bahr Auto diagnosed an intake manifold gasket leak. They repaired it quickly and correctly. A few days later they called to make sure the truck was ok. Outstanding experiecnce, highly recommended!
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.
