I've known these guys for 15 years and they're the best. They're from Germany and I have a German car and I think they're very honest.

Verified CustomerDecember 05, 2013

I went as a walk in off the street. I feel they were fair. They are clean and have a modern waiting area. The timeliness without an appointment, in an hour was pretty quick being they were not expecting me.

When I go to Auto Hans Alex takes care of my cars. He knows German cars and he always knows what needs to be done. He has always done an excellent job.

Verified CustomerSeptember 13, 2013

I have an import car and all of the quotes I got were higher than Auto Hans. They did quality work for less money.

Verified CustomerSeptember 11, 2013

The mechanic knows us and he knows what he is doing. It is hard to find an honest mechanic.

December 22, 2014

Alex and his team have OUTSTANDING customer service and are always very honest about what needs to be done now and what can wait until next time, which is hard to find in the auto service industry, especially with high end automobiles. They have earned my business through great customer service & care, reasonable prices and providing options instead of just numbers ($$$) and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

An inspection of the 1999 BMW Z3 I purchased from Auto Hans Inc.

1. Discount Tire determined that the two front tires have flat spots with 3/32” of tread removed; both front wheels are bent and require replacement…based on the technician’s opinion, this is evidence of a severe braking event and collision.
2. Front clip of car has been re-sprayed and there is a slight ripple in the hood denoting stress from a collision. The center air duct is missing and the right/left duct brackets are damaged.
3. Secondary air pump (smog device) vacuum hose was broken yet Auto Hans gave the car a passing grade and an Inspection sticker...The Department of public safety were notified and thy are currently investigating.
4. Engine warning light came on two days after purchase, repeated attempts to clear light failed.
5. Multiple fault codes are present. Emissions,
6. The ABS, Traction Control, and Cruse control lights do not illuminate when ignition key is turned to on position.
7. Various interior dash components including those that house the instrument cluster are severely damaged and beyond repair. It appears someone hastily removed these parts to gain access to the instrument cluster.
8. An inspection of the instrument cluster indicates someone tampered with it and eliminated the ABS, Traction Control and other critical lights that indicate inoperative safety systems…

These inspections were performed by certified BMW Technicians at their shop with the proper BMW diagnostic computer.

Here are their conclusions.
1. The car sustained a frontal impact which damaged the car.
2. Someone deliberately disabled onboard warning lights to hide inoperable safety systems e.g. the ABS-Traction control module (which is not working) and other systems needed for driver safety.
3. An inspection of the car by a qualified repair station would have detected numerous red flags which should have been addressed prior to placing the car for sale.

Note: The car was advertised to be in great shape and was inspected by seller.

Reply from Auto Hans – autohansincAugust 08, 2012

All accusations made by Stewart P are completely false and inaccurate. The vehicle was purchased by Mr P on 5-23-2012 for $5500.
Before the purchase Mr P test drove the vehicle three times. During those drives Mr.. P noticed that the vehicle is leaking a bit of oil, the state inspection had expired and the lower dash panel was not as tight as it should be. Auto Hans agreed to repair the oil leaks and get the car inspected. Mr.. P was made aware of the fact that the dash panel could not be fitted any better most likely due to the fact that the previous owner had the dash replaced at some point. Furthermore Mr.. P was told the front Bumper and hood were repainted due to a dent in the front grill assembly.
Upon completion of oil leaks and state inspection which I have legal documents that the car passed a Texas state inspection on 5-22-12 Mr P completed the purchase of the vehicle. A few days later we received a phone call that the Check Engine light has illuminated. We offered to take a look at it but Mr.. P said he just cleared the faults with a generic scan tool. I told Mr P that maybe a vacuum line became unhooked during the process of repairing the oil leaks. Turned out this actually was the problem.
On approx 8-2-2012 Mr P came by our location to complain about two tires, misc dash pieces and a problem with ABS light disconnected. Even at this time 9 weeks after the vehicle purchase we offered to repair the ABS (which we did not notice that lights were disconnected at the time of purchase). We also offered to locate some used dash pieces and maybe split cost to make Mr.. P happy. Unfortunately Mr P did not want to reason and demanded Auto Hans to buy the vehicle back for $8700.
Upon denying Mr P unreasonable demand he began leaving numerous bad comments on the internet, threatening phone calls, racial remarks and so on to the point were this will have to become a legal matter.
I also never heard of bent wheels due to heavy braking? A recent carfax reports also shows that Mr P had the vehicle reinspected on 6-22-2012 and the vehicle passed another inspection.

Auto Hans has serviced our two German cars for the past three years. Alex is always easily accessible, accommodating to our busy schedules and diligent in keeping us informed. Additionally, any repair or maintenance work to our cars is always performed thoroughly and in a timely fashion.

Thanks for checking out the phantom brake problem on our S320V. I drove it this afternoon after my return back to Dallas it it seems perfectly normal to me.

Go Mavs! Go Dirk!

Auto Hans is top notch. If you need to service an AMG or other European Car, and don't want to go broke at the dealer, this is the place to go.

They will do the work that needs to be done, to keep your car running in top shape. They own and drive high performance cars like M5's and AMG's, so they know these inside and out.

May 22, 2011

Very happy with price and service. I've had my 1996 audi A4 and 1998 mercedes c280 repaired here. No complaints whatsoever and the cars are running great. Recommended.

May 19, 2011

I have used Auto Hans now for over 15 years to service my Mercedes vehicles - specifically a 1985 380SL and a 2003 320E. I am very pleased with their service and can honestly say their workmanship is consistently "top-notch." I feel Auto Hans (both Alex and Hans especially) has developed a personal relationship with my cars due to their many years of service and consistency of personnel who work on my vehicles. With respect to the 380SL, they also appreciate and consider the economic reality of driving an older vehicle, and oftentimes, recommend cost-effective repair alternatives. Most importantly, Auto Hans will repair only those items that need to be repaired at a reasonable price and they completely stand behind their work.

My experience is alwasy awesome! Alex rocks! :-)

Alex and Auto Hans has maintained our 'collection' of 5 MB for close to 10 years. We purchased two of these cars from Alex. Auto Hans' work on our cars keeps them in top performing condition at the most competitive rates in DFW. You get to talk to the tech performing the work, they are more than happy to review the work with you. Alex keeps us informed of any upcoming larger maintenance well in advance of the need date. The repairs are completed on time, the cars are returned clean inside and out.

May 04, 2011

Outstanding repair experience. Prompt, very fair prices, excellent communications. These guys are my car's new caregivers. Done right the first time, full explanation of work required, with cost breakdown, and full explanation of upcoming needs and without the hyper sell. It's a 2001; it has needs. Shop is clean, too. Take your car here. You're gonna love these guys.

May 03, 2011

Alex excellent with customer service, very credible guy, as is his brother, Hans. They do great work and have maintained 3 BMW's of mine and my wife's, over the past 11 years. I wouldn't consider taking our car's to anyone but Alex at Auto Hans. I have done several comparable pricing checks over the years, and we have found we get excellent competitive pricing, along with excellent service on our BMW's, and excellent customer service. We recommend Auto Hans to anyone who demands quality service, competitive pricing, and excellent customer service.

April 05, 2011

The Auto Hans team is truly professional. They understand German cars, and fix them in a timely manner. You can either pay Auto Hans to fix it right for you the first time or you can pay another mechanic to try to fix it four or five times, while wasting your time and still experience the mechanical problem with your car for another year.

AutoHans has been servicing my cars for years. They do an excellent job and have always treated me fairly and honestly. They have an outstanding knowledge of German autos. Anytime I have had to go to someone else (including the dealerships), I have always been disappointed.

February 02, 2011

Love these guys, they always do a great job and help keep the cost to a minimum. Have been going to them now for 13 yrs, maybe longer....even ;purchased my current car from them.

Great job. Timely work done. Reasonable price. Thanks!

January 21, 2011

Alex is a great guy. Delivers on what he promises. I will highly recommend Auto hans if you drive a German vehicle. They keep my Boxter in pristine condition for a fraction of what the dealership will cost you.

January 08, 2011

I feel like I get personal service at a fair price. My older BMW makes regular visits but is always given good care.

November 16, 2009

Alex at this shop is knowledgeable and really nice to work with. He knows what he is doing. I explained to him what I have done to the car and he took it from there. It did not take long to identify what the problem is. It is kind of difficult to find this kind of technician nowadays. I highly recommend him. Repair const was reasonable. He gave me cash discount as well.
