Customer Service & Auto Repairs were outstanding. They went above & beyond my expectations. My car now drives superbly.
Sammy is NOT one of the best .
He IS the Best.
Thank you so much for your exceptional service.

by - Verified Customer December 19, 2017

Extremely pleased with Bobby and Sammy and their willingness to work with me.

by - Verified Customer December 14, 2017

After some confusion regarding the parts and what was initially explained, the work was performed much to my satisfaction. The delay was caused due to the parts confusion.

They do great work. They are patient and explain everything.

Excellent work, and fair price.

by - Verified Customer August 14, 2017

These folks know what their doing and do it right. They explain all of your options will repair all at once or over a period time depending on your budget. I will be back for a new soft top and some body work.

by - Verified Customer August 11, 2017

Had an oil change, was finished quick and the car is running fine

by - Verified Customer August 09, 2017

The entire staff is friendly and explains what needs to be done and the pros and cons on doing now vs later

They always do a great job and don't try to break the bank.

by - Verified Customer July 06, 2017

They had me bring the car in for a no charge estimate. When the car was torn down they showed me the areas of need. I then made the decision to do the work.

by - Verified Customer July 04, 2017

Had a great experience

by - Verified Customer June 18, 2017

I brought the car on a Thursday with the light engine on and a radiator licking coolant. It was ready by Monday as promised. Bobby and Sam always treat me with respect and also respect my time by going right to the point on what needs to be repaired.

This is the place to go if you need your Beamer taken care of.

by - Verified Customer June 14, 2017

Good service. Stood by their work when corrections were needed. Courteous.

by - Verified Customer June 06, 2017

Bobby and Sammy treat us like we are important to the business and it's success...and with respect.

by - Verified Customer June 05, 2017

A great mechanic I've been here numerous times and always a very fair price and great workmanship. Recommended!

The owners are a terrific, respectful team. I was treated fairly and will definitely return for future work/repairs.

by - Verified Customer April 20, 2017

It was a pleasure to work with you guys.

by - Verified Customer April 20, 2017

Excellent results and a reasonable price - will return to GAW for all my BMW and Porsche cars needs!

by - Verified Customer March 02, 2017

Great service!! Would definitely take my jeep into these guys again. Worked with insurance and make it a breeze! Thanks!

by - Verified Customer February 24, 2017

As always the people that run the shop are spot on in the quality of work done and their knowledge.

by - Verified Customer February 22, 2017

Service was efficient!

by - Verified Customer February 15, 2017

Received courteous, professional and prompt service. Economically performed only what needed to be done with no surprises. Would recommend to others without reservation.

by - Verified Customer February 15, 2017

I feel treated fairly and proper measures were expressed to me in order for me to feel fairly treated about my tires since I keep always having to replace them on my GL 550. Paying several thousand dollars a year just on tires for one vehicle is a bit ridiculous.

by - Verified Customer February 14, 2017

Been in the shop twice, oil change and services. Very professional, car was done very fast.

by - Verified Customer February 12, 2017

Very good, a customer for several years now.

German Auto World is the ONLY shop I use for my cars. Joe & Sammy always treat me like a superstar and the repairs are always perfect. One stop shop for me and my wife with our (2) Mercedes Benz, Porsche 356, Porsche 911 SC, Subaru, and Triumph TR6.

by - Verified Customer February 02, 2017

Always helpful.

by - Verified Customer February 02, 2017

Good shop/good prices.

by - Verified Customer February 02, 2017

I have been using GAW for the past two years and have been pleased with the service. I have a Japanese sports car, no problem, German is just in the shop's name.

by - Verified Customer January 31, 2017

Great shop everyone very helpful.

by - Verified Customer January 17, 2017

I feel like the car got more attention from this shop than from any other repair shop in the 7 years I owned it. I hope to have it a long time and have them take care of it in the future.

by - Verified Customer January 12, 2017

The mechanic actually listened to what I had to say, even though I am a woman! Turns out I was right and he admitted it. The people at the shop couldn't have been any nicer.

by - Verified Customer January 05, 2017

German Auto repaired my car and saved me a substantial amount of money compared to the dealership.

by - Verified Customer January 05, 2017

Great shop. Personal touch and don't gouge me on price. I knew they were good when I saw all of the restoration work they were doing.

by - Verified Customer January 03, 2017


by - Verified Customer December 29, 2016

I have been bringing my car here for about 4 years. I'm always treated well, and I feel that they go out of their way to see to it that I'm satisfied with the work they've done.

by - Verified Customer December 29, 2016

Would highly recommend this company.

by - Verified Customer December 22, 2016

Sammy made me fell like a friend not a client. I like doing business with friends!

by - Verified Customer December 21, 2016

First time costumer got little sticker shock on amount of money my car needed in repairs.

by - Verified Customer December 12, 2016

Larry and Mo are the best!

by - Verified Customer December 07, 2016

My car is a RR Phantom, had several service issues, German Auto World fixed ALL the problems in just few days.. The RR dealers in Palm Beach, Ft Lauderdale, Miami kept adding new charges but never fixed the original issues!

by - Verified Customer December 07, 2016

Great place!

by - Verified Customer December 02, 2016

German Auto World stood out among everyone else. I had called a few other places first to get our car worked on but none of them could do it. One person answered saying hold on, then started talking to friends in the background for 5 mins while I listened, waited and eventually hung up. That's how every other shop treated me but when I called German Auto World they answered politely, took care of me instantly and were able to see me only 10 mins later. The next day I had our car back and running better than when we bought it. German Auto World did a great job and we will only use them from here on.

by - Verified Customer November 29, 2016

Sammy identified the problems, told me what needed to be repaired and correctly fixed the vehicle. Job well done.

by - Verified Customer November 22, 2016

I have been working with German Auto World for many years now. It's an exceptional shop with excellent customer satisfaction wonderful prices and my favorite reliability!

by - Verified Customer November 07, 2016

I was satisfied.
