Your shop wanted to charge me over $3000 to do repairs--but couldn't even give me a full/accurate estimate--before it would pass my car during a MD safety inspection. (Interestingly enough, several years ago the EXACT SAME situation occurred with a different car I brought to Far East.) The next day I got a second opinion and my car only needed a $70 fix before it was suitable to pass inspection, which it has.

This is probably the third time I've used the services of Far East Motors. I've always been treated with respect and there is never any pressure to perform additional repairs. Everyone there is very courteous and caring. They explain in detail what the problems are with my vehicle as well as provide me with visual images by email with areas of the vehicle that need repair. I've never had an auto repair shop do this and, although I may not quite understand the technical aspects of my cars issues, I feel they are being totally forthright and honest with me. I really appreciate that.

Too many return visits

by - Verified Customer June 12, 2017

We brought it in for a check engine light. Turned out to be an EGR valve that needed to be replaced. A few days after we got the car back, the check engine light came on again. Called Far East, they said to drop it by later that day - no appointment necessary. Turns out some carbon had gotten on the new EGR which made the light come on again. They cleaned it all up, ran the motor for a couple of hours and the car works great now - No Charge!

by - Verified Customer June 05, 2017

Paul provides great customer service. He explained the repairs that were needed and management met my expectations superbly. This is a repair shop that I feel will do the right thing when it comes to repairing my car and not try to add more work and work hours to increase the amount of the service ticket.

I've been bringing my cars to Jon and his team for years! My Honda was kept up and running by Jon and his team with well over 200,000 miles on it. The only reason I don't have the car today is because someone hit it. They are knowledgeable, honest and fair with prices. I now trust them with my mother's car and my Lexus RX 330. I've recommended Jon to others and they have been extremely please with Far East Motors prices and service and the fact that they stand behind any services given at their business.

Repair prices are too expensive.

by - Verified Customer April 14, 2017

I have been coming here off and on for many years. I feel the most important trait of any auto repair shop is honest. Other shops are always pushing repairs that may be okay to do, but are not yet necessary. I've come here often for second opinions and saved a lot of money avoiding or at least holding off for long periods of doing repairs or maintenance. They are honest, friendly and do great work.

Overheating typically is caused by low coolant on these models. When the engine is off and cold( not after running a while) Open the Radiator cap and see if the fluid is up to the top. If not add the toyota red/pink coolant to the top. The overfill jug should have a level in the 1/2 range of full. Coolant /water pumps are frequent failures on these models. service@farestmotors.com :-)
