The service was ok. On my last visit for my routine oil and filter change and tire rotation, I was told that I needed rear brakes. So, I was surprised when a week later, my car wouldn't start and had to be towed. Found out that I needed a new starter. Seemed strange that the problem with the starter wasn't detected when the car was serviced the week before.

I've never had to return for second chance when having vehicles serviced at Goss'. I've been a customer since 1990.

by - Verified Customer July 24, 2017

I bought my car in for a second opinion after the dealer gave me exorbitant prices for some work I needed done. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. She explained everything that would be done for evaluation and told me the price upfront. Once inspected, I was called to inform me of the issue and asked if I wanted the repairs. One of the great things was that two of the things the dealership said I needed, I did not need at all. I decided to have the work done. When I picked my car up, the receptionist and mechanic explained what was done and showed before and after pictures. I truly appreciated their helpfulness. I will continue to take my vehicle to Goss Garage for my service needs.

They do the work on your vehicle and get it right the 1st time. The work they do is worth the $$. It' s like taking your car to the dealership without having to pay dealership costs which can be very expensive.

My daughter needed new brakes left the car in the AM picked up end of the day. Have us a quote for work/parts needed. Repair was done professionally and even washed the car on return.

by - Verified Customer April 10, 2017

They used to do good work but I can't really say with certainty that they do now and the customer service sad to say really isn't that good, they just seem cranky and short tempered, the best advice I could give them is to hire a good staff to work out front, and then just fix cars in the back.

by - Verified Customer April 10, 2017

Great shop.

by - Verified Customer April 06, 2017

Got an estimate on brake repair.

by - Verified Customer March 12, 2017

Took much too long to have tires installed and balanced even with an appointment.

by - Verified Customer March 06, 2017

Everyone at Goss is very friendly and pleasant and willing to help. They are very thorough and are great at explaining all issues and giving you options. Marcy and Billy are great to deal with and Ernie is fantastic!!

by - Verified Customer March 02, 2017

Fixed major brake problem.

by - Verified Customer March 02, 2017

Goss Garage was not very considerate of my time. They put me off (delayed repair) several times costing me time and money! I understand that things can and will happen. However, I would expect a PROFESSIONAL SHOP to stand behind their word when they tell me that me vehicle is ready for pick up and for me to come get it.

by - Verified Customer March 01, 2017

The shop provided good service on my vehicle.

by - Verified Customer January 27, 2015

I was not told outright that I needed to pay for the car computer's reprogramming before the tires could be rotated. Because of this the tires could not be rotated after I had waited for an hour.

by - Verified Customer January 27, 2015

Excellent customer service.

by - Verified Customer January 25, 2015

The work was completed on time and it was easy to schedule an appointment, PLUS my care runs much better.

by - Verified Customer December 29, 2014

Very friendly. Honest about not needing a service that another vendor said was urgent. Good follow up service.

by - Verified Customer December 28, 2014

Service was professional but the cost of the repair was very high.

by - Verified Customer December 23, 2014

I had my car repaired at Goss Garage. A few days later I returned with same problem. After they checked it,they said it was something else that needed to be done. Now I have already paid $190 for first repair that did not resolve the problem. They told it was something else and could bring it back for a second repair at $130. I believe I can throw parts at a problem and save on the labor. They presented themselves as professionals but did not show me. Before I took my car to them I had already replaced the tensioner and belt. I feel ripped off and fear the worse by returning.

by - Verified Customer December 21, 2014

The supervisor was very personable and focused on my vehicle problem. The service was impeccable but a little costly which you would expect from a quality organization.

by - Verified Customer December 17, 2014

Friendly and knowledgeable staff.

by - Verified Customer October 19, 2014

Great service. My car is running great!

by - Verified Customer October 09, 2014

Great shop and friendly people. They did a good job of explaining the service(s) and didn't try to "up sell" products that I didn't need or request information about.

by - Verified Customer October 08, 2014

by - Verified Customer October 02, 2014

Great service. Exceptional group

by - Verified Customer August 05, 2014

Car was brought in to Goss’s Garage (GG) due to reputation and exposure on Motor Week. Ford dealer indicated oil pan gasket need to be replaced. Quote good at GG, so brought it there. GG indicated ink dye test needed not acknowledging another garage’s diagnosis. Upon inquiry from customer to GG on technique for cleaning engine, service writers, (male/husband) seemed irritated then questioning customer how they would clean the engine. I/we trusted GG to clean the engine without damaging electronics. Coil pack was damaged. GG took off used coil pack of GG’s relative’s Taurus as “complimentary” courtesy. This was a discourtesy. Engine light on immediately with other cylinder misfire codes. We then had faulty GG installed coil pack replaced at our cost by another mechanic. Will never return to GG.

by - Verified Customer May 12, 2013

I work on my own cars and only use a mechanic shop when the work exceeds my skills. Goss's Garage is who I use. This last time was my mother's car. The brakes went out and I looked at what needed to happen and quickly determined it needed to go to a pro. It was a huge amount of work and I knew it would be because of how the brake lines are routed. They gave me an estimate and the final price was below the estimate. It was not cheap but it was fair. I recommend these guys to everyone. If you want it done right the first time, go to these guys. Don't forget to look in the work area. You can eat off the floor.

by - Verified Customer May 09, 2013

I trust them. They do great work. Prices are good. And they are personable

by May 08, 2013

The main thing I want to say and the reason why I choose to bring my car to Goss' Garage for repairs is because I really believe they care about quality work. They also seem very knowledgeable about all the technical aspects of cars including the newer ones where the technology is constantly and quickly changing---yet they are able to keep up.

by - Verified Customer April 15, 2013

Goss s Garage is surely a reputable and honest place. I have been pleased with the maint. done on my jeep and nothing has failed on it after being repaired.

by - Verified Customer April 10, 2013

Great work, followed my instructions to the letter and completed the repairs in a timely manner. Best of all, they followed up about 10 days after the repair. I've never had a follow-up call.

by - Verified Customer April 07, 2013

Each time I have used Goss's garage, I have been treated like I was the only customer there. I was explained everything that was to be done and preventive measures to ensure that problems would be kept to a minimum. Very pleased with the service and customer care that was received.

by - Verified Customer April 03, 2013

My son reminded me that my ex use to faithfully listen to this fascinating car talk show host, Pat Goss. My son encouraged me to check them out, before having any one else look at the car. The car is a 10-year old Lexus, that still looks as good as new. No accidents, no trouble until a year ago. Had I gone to Goss' shop then I would not have had any trouble with the car. I had gone to many mechanics for diagnostics, they would instinctively tell me that they would have to charge thousands of dollars to get to the heart of the problem, and then the problem might cost thousands more. The money spent on diagnostics alone, would have repaired the car, had I gone straight to Mr. Goss. Lexus told me that my car needed $10,000 worth of repair work. They said it would not run much longer without that work, that was a year ago. Pat Goss' people cheerfully took my car in did a same day diagnostic, and the cost was so nominal that I told them to do it the next day. They not only ordered the parts, as some mechanics had asked me to get the parts, what would I know about getting a part? Pat Goss' shop completed the job in a couple of days and had the car purring like a kitten. They told me that there are other small maintenance things that need doing, but these were not earth shattering. I gave Goss' shop people the Lexus list, and there was nothing on that list that would have fixed my car. The problem was totally something that was not on Lexus' list. Lexus feels that you should replace your car when it gets to be 10 years old. So a $10,000 job would cause you to decide to buy a new one, if you are fickle enough to believe them. My hat is off to the great staff and mechanics at Pat Goss' auto, and a wink to Billy!

by - Verified Customer April 03, 2013

I have had my cars serviced at Goss's Garage for about ten years but Pat Goss has been a valuable resource for over 25 years thru his call in radio show.

by - Verified Customer March 04, 2013

Goss' Garage is a "go to" place for questions or repairs or anything automotive. I met professional staff who gave me an honest assessment of needed repairs. The work was performed on time and at a reasonable cost. I have recommended this shop to family and friends.

by - Verified Customer February 28, 2013

I got on the internet, and asked a question about my car to Pat Goss. The Ford dealer told me that I had a blown head gasket, and that is why I wasn't getting any heat. Pat told me it was one of 3 things. I took my car into his garage. They found the problem, gave me an estimate, and the car was fixed for less than the estimate.
