I have found a home at German Auto World. I was greeted by courteous and professional staff once I walked in and continued to have exemplary service and everything explained to me in full detail of all the requirements needed for my vehicle to run safely. The waiting room is luxurious and fully furnished with TV and leather coaches. I was completely comfortable with coffee and snacks and within walking distance to restaurants and stores. I talked to and witnessed other long term customers come in and leave just as satisfied as I am. I recommend this shop to everyone that wants or needs service, body or complete restorations to their cars. They are even running a coupon for Synthetic Oil Services, the cheapest in town! $69.99 for VW/Audi and $99.99 for Mercedes/BMW.
I'm so lucky to have found German Auto World!!

For the first time, instead of bringing my car to BMW for repairs, I brought it to German Auto World. I was hesitant, and a little nervous, because a good, honest mechanic is hard to find. But, Joe Barnmichael and Team were reliable, friendly, and a pleasure to do business with.

I brought my car in to have the evaporator core repaired - not a small job. They told me they could do it and to come back in two days. 48 hours later I arrived to find my car was fixed and cleaned!

They use the latest technology, are entirely reliable and friendly, fairly priced, and the entire staff is fully capable.

I would definitely go back to this high-end-shop for any future work I have on my vehicles and recommend their services to anyone who needs automotive repairs.

German Auto World is our one stop repair facility for routine maintenance for our Mercedes Benz, Subaru, and Ferrari. In addition, we had a 1968 250SE and a 1961 Porsche 356 Super 90 totally restored by Joe and his superstar staff. Joe Barmichael is THE BEST technician I have ever seen. I worked for Porsche for almost 21 years and hes is more knowledgeable than any technician I have ever seen. My wife Linda and I want to thank Joe, Vicki, Becky, Andy, Sergio, Jamie, John, and Mia for taking such good care of us and all of our cars. You guys are awesome!

I had to say that this was better than some dates I was on. The people were caring and everyone helped ou8t . I was made to feel at home considering that I just had a blow-out, not 100 feet from the place. The place was beautiful and the service staff let mr know what was going on and all of was done with smiles all around, especially me and my new tire.
Please thank them for me.

Had an on-going problem with oil leveland after 3 tries with the local repair shop and getting nowhere, I called german auto world. Went right over-left the car. Withing 2 hours, I was called with the problem answered I okayed the work. The staff was friendly, the cost appeared reasonable, the service was very fast. They will be my go-to repair shop .

First I brought Tundra to the Toyota dealership and they wanted to place my entire air injection system for $3500. I did some research and found German Auto World. They gave me an estimate over the phone and, when I brought my car in, took a look inside to see the true problem and even showed me what was wrong. They gave me a ride home, and picked me up the next day when my truck was ready. I didn't need to replace the ENTIRE system, and my Tundra runs great. The grand total was LESS than 1/3 of what Toyota was going to charge. I highly recommend German Auto World. It's a family business, they're kind, fair, and good people. They also do custom work, and I'm going to be returning there soon.

Family run, fast, friendly, and reliable. Unlike the dealer, they actually do the the work instead of just charging you for it. Best mechanics in southern Florida.

I have been to them twice for two totally different issues. Both were addressed and in a timely and professional manner. They even let my daughter enjoy their our families toddler room while we waited.
Price is right (relevant to the repairs) for brakes , they were almost Half the dealer. AC was about $150... for working AC in South Fl in the summer, I call that a bargain

I have some body work to have done, I will probably let them do that as well...

I am lucky to have them taking care of my cars, you usually cant find a shop like this these days. Go there if your in the market for a new shop, you will not regret it.

Excelent work,without dealership prices, these guys are a truly proffessionals.

Robert was able to find NEW OEM parts with better factory warranty.

The diagnostic was right on the money, and they also detailed my HEADLIGHTS.
I also noticed right away, a better mileage on my GTI VR6.

I'm looking foward to bring my wife's car next time.
