great service

by - Verified Customer August 24, 2017

This was just an inspection appointment but Dave tightened me up with some invaluable trouble shooting advice. You can't go wrong with Anker's Garage.

Nys inspection dropped car off during closed hours ...inspection was finished following morning

I had an oil change and waited for the car. Everything was fine (except no spoons for the coffee!! - someone did get some when asked) no biggie.

by - Verified Customer July 24, 2017

Excellent work. Assessed what needed to be done, called me and explained what needed to be done clearly and executed flawlessly.

by - Verified Customer July 23, 2017

Excellent service. Very friendly and honest!

I was happy with the service.

by - Verified Customer July 17, 2017

You guys do a great job!

by - Verified Customer July 12, 2017

No frills repair shop. David runs a straightforward business. They tell you whats wrong, what the options are, and how much it would cost.

by - Verified Customer June 13, 2017

very thorough inspection. Car ran perfectly when returned to me. Very satisfied.

by - Verified Customer June 05, 2017

I have known David Anker for many, many years but that is not why I get such excellent service. Dave is one of the most honest and professional people I have ever known and it shows in the quality of the work that is performed by his establishment. I enjoy making minor repairs to my automobiles but when I have a big job that must be done right, Anker's is the only place I will trust to do the work the way I would.

by - Verified Customer May 25, 2017

I'll be back.

by - Verified Customer May 24, 2017

Great as usual! Ankers has been and continues to be customer friendly, honest, great work. Thank you!

by - Verified Customer May 21, 2017

I've been going to Anker's for over 30 years and have always gotten great service.

by - Verified Customer May 21, 2017

Ankers is doing a great job keeping my 14-year-old Outback in good, reliable, running order.

by - Verified Customer May 18, 2017

Great auto repair shop.

by - Verified Customer May 08, 2017

Excellent Customer Service.

by - Verified Customer May 04, 2017

I was convinced my head gasket was gone and brought it to these honest folks to be pleasantly surprised that it was not and was a simple fix! 200 $ VS 1800$!
Thanks so much for always being reliable and trustworthy!

by - Verified Customer April 30, 2017

Anker's Auto really takes great care of their customers. I've been there twice now and each time I called last minute, they took my car right in and it was ready fairly quickly. The guys are so nice and patient. They take the time to hear you out and then carefully explain to you what is wrong with your vehicle and explain what work will be done. After your service they even send you coupons and other incentives to thank you for being a customer. I highly recommend this auto shop, they are very trustworthy and charge fair prices.

by - Verified Customer April 20, 2017

I will only trust Ankers with my vehicle! Excellent service!!!

by - Verified Customer March 23, 2017

Dave was very honest and straightforward about the job and pricing, very happy with service. Best

by - Verified Customer March 23, 2017

Dave has always been honest and upfront. Would recommend his shop to anyone looking for good affordable car care.

We are new to the area and I went to Anker's based on the Google and Yelp reviews. They were all true. The attention to detail and feeling of being taken care of was top notch. I love supporting small business and this is one I will be back to again and again.

by - Verified Customer March 01, 2017

Been going there for decades. They've always been terrific.

by - Verified Customer February 20, 2017

Great people, trust them.

by - Verified Customer February 20, 2017

Excellent. I felt bad having him hold the parts for almost a week until my schedule freed up to drop the vehicle off.

by - Verified Customer February 14, 2017

This was actually my most disappointing shop visit. I showed up at 7 minutes after five PM and no one was around, and that has not happened to me before in my many years of bringing my cars to Ankers. There's always been someone there for pick up. I had to make special arrangements to get my car and it ruined Valentine's Day dinner plans. You should call client's if there car is still awaiting pickup near closing to see if they need them or are on their way. I would have called, but as I've said, in the dozens of prior visits, I've never seen a hard close at 5 PM.

by - Verified Customer February 09, 2017

Great service as usual!

by - Verified Customer February 07, 2017

It is a very rare thing to actually trust a car repair place. And I trust Ankers.

by - Verified Customer January 16, 2017

Courteous, honest, and efficient.

by - Verified Customer January 12, 2017

Anker's has always done great maintenance or repair work, whether it was a 1996 sedan or my 2013 hatchback! I always trust that they'll do a good job.

by - Verified Customer December 27, 2012

The repairs were done fast and they were very courteous.

We've been using Anker auto service since 1983 and we have been totally satisfied with his performance and that's why we're still there.

by November 29, 2012

They do the repair as affordable as possible. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries for them to get it right, but they try with the least expenses and they are always fair with the customer. In a few cases they've stayed late to get it done, so overall very pleased with the service.

by - Verified Customer November 26, 2012

I think he is a very honest, ethical, hard working, very good mechanic. We've used him for 25 years.

by - Verified Customer November 25, 2012

They are wonderful people. I had a repair that was not needed, but they do great work. I trust them.

by - Verified Customer November 11, 2012

Trustworthy. He's very trustworthy.

by November 06, 2012

It's a good place to get your car repaired. Excellent service. Excellent price. From a repeat customer.

by - Verified Customer November 06, 2012

This repair shop is very trustworthy. I trust them and they don't pressure you into doing things that don't need done. They make you very aware and give you time when there is a major repair, that way your not surprised when you get there. They are just very nice.

by - Verified Customer November 05, 2012

Dave Anker is an excellent mechanic, service is excellent, and I've been taking my cars there for almost 30 years. I highly recommend Anker's Auto.

by - Verified Customer October 28, 2012

My cousin next door referred me to them, and I was impressed that they knew what they were doing. They were knowledgeable, the prices were right, and it didn't take all day. It was my first time and I will be definitely go back and recommend them.

by - Verified Customer October 22, 2012

I recommend them all the time and I've been going there for years and I don't plan on changing. I take three cars there.
