My son reminded me that my ex use to faithfully listen to this fascinating car talk show host, Pat Goss. My son encouraged me to check them out, before having any one else look at the car. The car is a 10-year old Lexus, that still looks as good as new. No accidents, no trouble until a year ago. Had I gone to Goss' shop then I would not have had any trouble with the car. I had gone to many mechanics for diagnostics, they would instinctively tell me that they would have to charge thousands of dollars to get to the heart of the problem, and then the problem might cost thousands more. The money spent on diagnostics alone, would have repaired the car, had I gone straight to Mr. Goss. Lexus told me that my car needed $10,000 worth of repair work. They said it would not run much longer without that work, that was a year ago. Pat Goss' people cheerfully took my car in did a same day diagnostic, and the cost was so nominal that I told them to do it the next day. They not only ordered the parts, as some mechanics had asked me to get the parts, what would I know about getting a part? Pat Goss' shop completed the job in a couple of days and had the car purring like a kitten. They told me that there are other small maintenance things that need doing, but these were not earth shattering. I gave Goss' shop people the Lexus list, and there was nothing on that list that would have fixed my car. The problem was totally something that was not on Lexus' list. Lexus feels that you should replace your car when it gets to be 10 years old. So a $10,000 job would cause you to decide to buy a new one, if you are fickle enough to believe them. My hat is off to the great staff and mechanics at Pat Goss' auto, and a wink to Billy!
I work on my own cars and only use a mechanic shop when the work exceeds my skills. Goss's Garage is who I use. This last time was my mother's car. The brakes went out and I looked at what needed to happen and quickly determined it needed to go to a pro. It was a huge amount of work and I knew it would be because of how the brake lines are routed. They gave me an estimate and the final price was below the estimate. It was not cheap but it was fair. I recommend these guys to everyone. If you want it done right the first time, go to these guys. Don't forget to look in the work area. You can eat off the floor.
The main thing I want to say and the reason why I choose to bring my car to Goss' Garage for repairs is because I really believe they care about quality work. They also seem very knowledgeable about all the technical aspects of cars including the newer ones where the technology is constantly and quickly changing---yet they are able to keep up.
I got on the internet, and asked a question about my car to Pat Goss. The Ford dealer told me that I had a blown head gasket, and that is why I wasn't getting any heat. Pat told me it was one of 3 things. I took my car into his garage. They found the problem, gave me an estimate, and the car was fixed for less than the estimate.
I had my car repaired at Goss Garage. A few days later I returned with same problem. After they checked it,they said it was something else that needed to be done. Now I have already paid $190 for first repair that did not resolve the problem. They told it was something else and could bring it back for a second repair at $130. I believe I can throw parts at a problem and save on the labor. They presented themselves as professionals but did not show me. Before I took my car to them I had already replaced the tensioner and belt. I feel ripped off and fear the worse by returning.
Car was brought in to Goss’s Garage (GG) due to reputation and exposure on Motor Week. Ford dealer indicated oil pan gasket need to be replaced. Quote good at GG, so brought it there. GG indicated ink dye test needed not acknowledging another garage’s diagnosis. Upon inquiry from customer to GG on technique for cleaning engine, service writers, (male/husband) seemed irritated then questioning customer how they would clean the engine. I/we trusted GG to clean the engine without damaging electronics. Coil pack was damaged. GG took off used coil pack of GG’s relative’s Taurus as “complimentary” courtesy. This was a discourtesy. Engine light on immediately with other cylinder misfire codes. We then had faulty GG installed coil pack replaced at our cost by another mechanic. Will never return to GG.
This shop are a piece of work. We had a axel replaced which blew in less than 3 months. Called and was given 2 different warranty info. Front desk said it was covered and pat gets on the phone to say its not. Took the car to Champion who had replaced the drivers side and we were told steel wool was I'm the axel. Champion repaired and replaced Goss shabby work and sent the axel by Goss back to manufactor for refund. Goss does not stand behind his work nor does he check his employees work
This is a great shop at reasonable rates. I have been a customer for several years and have noticed that nearly all of the staff are still there and have been working there awhile -- a good sign. Even though this is a busy shop, the customer service is very good, whether it be on communications or giving a lift to Metro. And is conveniently located across from Seabrook MARC station. A+ shop.
I've finally found a shop that I trust to do quality work for a reasonable cost. The folks at Goss' Garage clearly take pride in their work and value their customers.
With over 150K miles on my Ford Ranger, I was starting to think it might be time for a new vehicle. After these guys worked on it, I'm thinking it may go another 150K.
