It was great.

by - Verified Customer July 14, 2017

Best BMW auto repair/maintenance shop in the greater Boston area, having been to four other ones in the past 5+ years. Owner (Victor Larin) cares about the customer car and needs, and seems to be passionate about his work.

by - Verified Customer July 14, 2017

I put the car up on ramps after they replaced the MacPheerson struts. I looked over the work from underneath the car. It was excellent

I called the shop the week before the repair and got an estimate on what the job would cost. It was right in line with other estimates I had received. On the day I took my truck to the shop, they were very helpful and took the time to give me a ride home while waiting for the repair (it was a timing belt and related parts). The job was done in a very efficient manner and the cost was exactly as estimated. They also gave me a ride back. I would recommend them for any future repair.

My experience at Larin was excellent! I am usually very wary of auto mechanics because my knowledge of cars is minimal and it would be easy to take advantage of that. My technician Alex was excellent! He explained everything thoroughly and made me feel at ease. My car was ready earlier than they estimated it would be and it runs better than it ever has! Also they took care to schedule me a rental car and made that process as easy as can be. As long as I'm in the Norwood area, I'll be taking my car to Latin from now on!

I remain a loyal customer of Larin Automotive; they continue to build upon my trust by the quality of work that they do. I recently had a set of 4 tires replaced and routine maintenance performed on my wife's Sequoia - Brandon at Larin is able to take care of me quickly, and the quality is top notch...not to mention, the cost is cheaper than the dealership.

Just this week, I had some wheel spacers added to my F150 (after adding some bulkier tires for the winter a few months ago). Once again, the work was done quickly, and with high quality. Brandon makes sure to explain everything in detail, and sets clear expectations for turnaround times.

I continue to be impressed by Larin and how they treat customers (thanks, Brandon!). The mechanics are all extremely friendly, too. Larin remains the only place I will bring any of my vehicles.

Questions Answered by Larin Automotive
is there a dip stick or just the filler tube?
Hello,

These vehicles have a dipstick tube with no dipstick inside. In order to check the fluid level you would need to get a dipstick (which is considered a special tool) that has 10 mm graduations on it and using a scan tool you would check the transmission temperature and then refer to the specifications graph which would tell you how high the fluid should be in millimeters based on your temperature. Alternatively you could buy a dipstick from a parts store that is designed to work with this vehicle and is marked with a full level mark at full operating temperature (after driving for at least 20 .min).

Good luck,

Victor Larin
The buzzing sound lasts for about 2min the...
Hi Sonif,

The buzzing noise could in fact be caused by the air compressor that is used for the air suspension. If this is something that is new to the car I would have it properly diagnosed, often times small leaks can develop in the air suspension system which make it necessary for the air compressor to come on and compensate for the pressure loss while the vehicle is parked. If not fixed the air pump could potentially fail due to excessive operation. A small air leak repair could often be a lot cheaper than an air compressor and a leak repair in the future.

Good luck,

Victor Larin
