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
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.
