I went in to have my PA state inspection and emissions testing completed. The gentleman at the front desk was very friendly and even turned on cartoons for my toddler son. The work was completed within the hour they promised and I didn't need anything additional. Overall it was a great experience!

Always an excellent experience. Staff and owners are courteous and friendly. Wouldn't take my car anywhere else.

by - Verified Customer March 16, 2017

Staff is always polite and friendly and they don't mind explaining the issues with the car in detail. The prices have increased in a way that makes the shop almost as expensive as the dealer, some parts actually appear cheaper at the dealer. I've also received recommendations for repairs and work that has already been completed on my car, though I have never been pressured into taking those recommendations.

My only negative comments are as follows: first there's no reason to go through my glove compartment and center console for an oil change or a brake repair. Taking things out and placing them in different areas of the car is inappropriate. Second, if someone is a heavy smoker and they work on the car's interior or drive the car, the smell is suffocating and hard to remove from the fabric of the vehicle, no matter how friendly they are.

My driver's side mirror had to be replaced. Scott and his team ordered the replacement promptly and I had it replaced in a few short days. They're the best.

by - Verified Customer March 02, 2017

Brought my car in for a last minute inspection and was fit in the schedule with ease. Car was back same day with one recommendation and at a competitive rate (free emissions). Thanks!

I have been a Motorcar Makeover customer for as long as they have been in business. My son had a problem, called and stopped as he was going by the shop. Scott was willing and able to fix the problem right way so the car could be driven. I always appreciate the exceptional service and respect given by all at the shop.

As always, the best of everything from this business! Reliable, honest, kind, bend-over-backwards to be the best for the customer. I will never take my car anywhere else. As a single, older woman who has been out of work for a while, I appreciate the fact that they don't pressure any work not needed. But they always let me know if they feel I might need something in the future; this way I can plan if need be. They simply are the best.

I always prefer to bring my car to MM rather than the Lexus dealer. However it always ends up costing me a LOT more than what I had planned. I need to ask more questions beforehand about potential services that might have to be done along with a simple oil change. On this most recent visit, I was dismayed by the total cost of services recommended after the car was driven back for the oil change.

Scott and his crew at Motorcar are the best!

Honest, trustworthy, great qualities for an auto repair shop. They understand that our vehicles are old, 2003 and 2005, and that repairs need to make sense vs the need for a new car. I think they are taking pride in having our Corolla run as long as possible without replacing something major like the engine should that become necessary down the road. I feel respected at Motorcar Makeovers.

Since having the car worked on there is a noise issue that I intend to stop back and bring to the attention of the owner.

Although I brought in my car for routine maintenance, I knew Scott would evaluate everything. He recommended that filters be replaced and alerted me to the need to replace my front brakes soon. I had just had the car to the dealer recently and none of those issues were mentioned.
