These folks are EXCELLENT - reliable, fair and personable - they have 'resurrected' two old cars for me, one of them over 30 years old. I've stopped bringing my cars elsewhere - Although I live nearly 40 miles away, it is worth it to me to bring my vehicles there, where I know the work is going to be done right, and if something occasionally needs a bit of additional attention / re-work to correct, they are quick to respond and not charge me significantly, if at all. This place was recommended to me by a very good friend and I understand why.

by - Verified Customer October 29, 2017

everyone was friendly and professional. The repairs were very competitively priced. I was completely satisfied and will continue to bring my car there.

The team is terrific and a pleasure to work with. I feel lucky to have found them!

by - Verified Customer October 03, 2017

Dealt with Tom- Easy to deal with and nice guy. Was not pleased with the mess the tech made of my rims and oil and dirt scuff marks inside of car- needed to have a detail shop clean it up. In the past, I always got my car back in a much cleaner condition- was not pleased with this this time.

I feel more comfortable with the work preformed and the person -to-person interactions than I have in any auto repair shop. This place is just amazing!

Sometimes thing beyond are control happens when working on older vehicles, we alway call for approval before work is done. If you get a chance give me a call and I can review your Invoice and see if there anything I can do for you. John 203 481 8299

Was told that I needed rear brakes and brought my vehicle else where for a second opinion and was told rear brakes are fine for now. Also $815 to replace muffler, other place replaced area of muffler that needed attention; cost $186.

Reply from European Specialists – by Angela at European Specialists November 05, 2013

Please give me call , we cant seem to match your claim up with any customer , Brake are suggested by measuring all 4 pads and rotor thickness and are recorded. As far as the exhaust we perfer the proper factory parts rather than patching in pieces , which could be cheaper at first but hiders performance and reliability ,we only do its the proper way . The rotten tatse of poor quality lingers on long after the sweetest of a lower price.

They know my car and recommended work that would have been scheduled in another 10k miles but saved me money by including it in the service I went in for because they would have had to undo a bunch of the scheduled service to complete this other component.
