Verified CustomerMay 15, 2014

They do a great job. They make suggestions if it's vital they tell you that. To me, this is good, other shops are there to make money, they don't do that, they are there for customer care. Their prices are fair especially for their work and effort they put into their job.

Verified CustomerApril 11, 2014

I have a 1991 BMW and old car, and they seem to have the key personnel who know the older cars and they have done an excellent job for me. The people are nice, you meet the mechanics face to face. They go above and beyond the customer needs. For instance they track everything. John Roberts procured a part for my car from Germany, he was able to get the part. Just trying to illustrate how they go above and beyond in their service.

Verified CustomerApril 11, 2014

Nice prices and good quality service. Nice atmosphere.

This repair shop is outstanding. My Benz was pampered during the service and I was always informed of the costs during the process. These folks are a pleasure to know and do business with.

March 28, 2009

After using Autohaus Schlosser in Reading, PA for the past 8 years, and having to wait 1-2 weeks on average to get my Mercedes back, I thought I would try German Auto Specialists since I work in Norristown. Wow!! What great speedy service. They did state inspection, new tie rods, brakes, had the front alignment done along with some other items and had the car back to me the same day!! My Dad is a retired Diesel mechanic and he was impressed by the amount of quality work they did in one day. Their labor rates are competitive to local area shops and they are well worth the price.

February 20, 2009

These guys are great. I went in with a bad door hinge. The owner tried to fix it and told me it was more of an auto body type of fix. He didn't charge me a dime and gave me some auto body shop referrals. I used one of them and was very pleased. Visit their site to find out more.

These guys have been my trusted mechanics for about a decade. Honest and straightforward, I would recommend them to anyone. They've worked on my Porches, Mercedes and Audis.
