My vehicle was repaired at a fair price.

by - Verified Customer August 10, 2016

We were happy with how we were taken care of, the level of service we received I would recommend this shop for car mechanical repairs and maintenance.

by - Verified Customer August 09, 2016

The work required had been spelled out in advance (in writing), there were no surprise additional "problems," and it was done within the time window I was told.

by - Verified Customer August 08, 2016

Quick and painless. The price quoted was less than expected and everything was done on a timely manner. Very nice crew.

Took much longer than expected and my radio wasn't working for the next 3 days when they said they would call me the next day and didn't. I had to contact them every time to check on it because I did not receive calls that they said they were going to make.

by - Verified Customer July 25, 2016

The guys always work hard to find the problem and get it fixed.

My battery died in my BMW 325i. The car was jump started and brought to Performance Motor Works who replaced it while I waited. The guys at the counter are easy to work with and provide you with a nice waiting room to wait in.

Quick and stress-free.

by - Verified Customer July 07, 2016

First and only time at this shop and the problem didn't even get fixed but yet we had paid for the service and parts. We drove away the same day to only see the problem didn't even get fixed so we had lost hundreds of dollars. We called straight away about the problem and took it back the next working day and to be told that there is another leak (what they didn't see this when they originally looked over the car when we told them about the leak and what side it was on) .

by - Verified Customer July 06, 2016

Customer service was excellent. Explained my repairs and options. Next time I need work done on my car I will be back.

by - Verified Customer April 22, 2016

Dave, the PMW owner, is and has always been a pleasure to work with. We have been customers for 17 years. His work is always thorough and high quality and the shop always does more that just the "minimum". Customer service and fair, honest competitive pricing are hallmarks of his business. PMW looks out for the customers best interest in everything they do.

I was not very happy with my last service. I received my vehicle in what I would consider unacceptable way to relieve my vehicle. The trunk was all pulled apart. The battery had been registered and the cover and battery had not been put back together.

Good efficient customer service.

They are absolutely outstanding.

by - Verified Customer February 24, 2016

Good service except for 1 item. They had the entire front engine area apart doing repairs. I requested a quote to replace the thermostat while they had easy access. They quoted me the labor for the entire job instead of adjusting the cost lower because of the work already requiring the front of the engine area to be removed. I saw my car during the repairs and the thermostat was in plain view and it would have taken no more than 20 minutes to replace the thermostat. They quoted me $200+ parts. I requested a lower quote but they would not adjust it. I did not have them do the additional work because of the unreasonable quote. It appeared to me that they were trying to gouge me thinking I didn't know anything about mechanics. I was an auto mechanic for 6 years when I was younger.

by - Verified Customer February 12, 2016

Car was fixed, washed, and ready when promised. Plus Dave gave me a ride home. Love this place they know what they are doing.

They were fast, friendly, and professional. I also appreciated their reasonable prices.

by - Verified Customer December 29, 2015

I was a loyal client for many years and received excellence time after time. Then the owner put a couple of layers between him and his clients and the customer service went downhill. On multiple occasions calls were not returned or I would be promised a call but it would never come. I didn't know what was going on with my car or how to proceed. I'm very disappointed that it came to pass that I was compelled to cease taking my car to PMW. And while I understand putting a buffer between yourself and clients, they still want to have their issues addressed by someone in a timely manner. His current manager fell woefully short.

by - Verified Customer December 15, 2015

The employees at Performance are always very helpful and friendly. They explain things completely and have continued to do a great job keeping our 2 BMWs running smoothly.

by - Verified Customer December 11, 2015

I think they were highly over priced. They tried to charge me over $200 for an oil change. When the car dealership from where I bought my daughters BMW from called them they changed the price to $98.00. I'm a single mom and need an honest BMW mechanic.

by - Verified Customer November 30, 2015

Friendly expert service. Did the work they said they would do with reasonable pricing.
