Alex was excellent and I was very satisfied with services I received.
Very honest, fair, good value. Thank you!
friendly and very professional service.
Thanks for your help. I appreciate it.
Nice job especially to Victor.
Alex and the team are fantastic and my experience was extremely positive! I will highly recommend Tolimas!
Tolima's does great work and doesn't fool around.
Great Shop, super honest, understood that I understand how the mechanics of cars worked, and discussed how to properly maintain the vehicle.
Alex was a superstar. He always called with updates, texted pictures, and treated me with respect.
Quick and professional just as a customer would prefer it to be!
Always satisfied with the work at Tolima, keep up with the good work!
Great shop! Alex and Victor quoted the best price and obtained the required part (a passenger-side mirror) the following business day. I set up an appointment for later that day and the job was done in an hour. Very happy!
I took a 2004 Scion in for a Check Engine Light and an ABS light that was on. From the moment I called to the final transaction Alex was beyond helpful. He explained that the car needed a new 'Knock Sensor'. They replaced it in a timely manner and showed me the old part that had been removed from the car. Alex introduced me to VIctor, the mechanic working on the car and he too was very kind and informative. I think Tolima's is a great repair shop. I'm so glad to have found it and will definitely return!
They drove me home after I dropped off my car. Price was reasonable and repair was excellent. Great customer service.
It was pleasant and the people were nice.
Excellent service, nice waiting room. Very friendly and informative.
I have worked with this shop several times and am always satisfied with the service. Friendly, efficient and reasonable. Very reliable.
Glad my dad recommended this place.
Great place to get repair's at.
Excellent service from start to finish. The work was done with great car and every step was explained to me. These guys are awesome.
Wonderful experience. They were a pleasure to work with and did a wonderful job fixing damage on my car at a reasonable price. Not only did my car come out great after they fixed damage to exterior but they managed to get my car in and out of the shop in just a couple of days. Overall fabulous experience! I would 100% recommend going there to friends/family! I would definitely use them again if needed. Great experience.
The best auto shop in NYC..
I am so thankful that I found Tolima's! I love love love this shop and will definitely be back.
Great experience. They were honest without pressure to use them.
Rushed a repair that no one else I called could do the same day!!
Great job, service and nice staff.
Shop is great.
This is my only service provider and I plan to stay for all of my service needs!
They work with honesty, empathy and well with customers like me.
Had an appointment but arrived early and the mechanic was kind enough to take my car right away. Super clean facility,and honest guys. Super helpful.
I had a great experience here. I wanted a clutch adjustment on a car I recently purchased and they did a great job at a fair price. They made sure I was satisfied before I left. This shop is clean, professional and the people that run it are friendly.
I had found Tolimas through Google actually. There was a huge problem with my radiator. As soon as my wife and I arrived Alex, one of the main guys there, greeted us and asked us what the problem was. He was very friendly and accommodating. He not only told us what was wrong with my truck, but actually showed us where the problem was while my truck was lifted!! Most mechanics just tell you what the problem is and that's that. But all the guys there talk to you and give you their best opinion on how to move forward. I will definitely come back and recommend this place to everyone that needs their car fixed!!!!
when I go to the shop unexpectedly because something is wrong with my car I always welcome warmly to do and take care with my car. Very, very Ansley. I trust them to do the right work.
Went in for a routine inspection after inheriting a car an older Mercedes. Alex was very thorough, had me walk around the vehicle pointing out what was in good shape, needed fixing and things that's could wait. Like all the reviews say, this place was very honest. Prices were fair. Highly recommend.
Love it here. Alex is the best.
Problem solved.....no nonsense.
Great customer service, friendly staff.
Great Experience! Honest Family Business. Gave me what I needed to fix my 2004 Sienna with 210K miles.
It was excellent service by Alex and victor.
I had my catalytic converter stolen, literally cut out, while parked by my apartment one evening. At first, I thought something was seriously wrong with my engine. As soon as I arrived at Tolima Auto Center they new the real deal. They were super helpful and they took care of everything. Most important, they were really knowledgeable about the insurance process and they knew all the local adjusters. Like a lot of shops they could have easily just put in non-OEM or used parts as insurers like to do and left me stuck with warranties from 3rd parties. But with their guidance I got all new OEM parts with warranties that Tolima Auto Center will stand behind for just a small 5% fee with the insurer. That was a fair deal for a 12 year old car. While there they also did some servicing and break work that was overdue. (My bad!) Only my 2nd time at Tolima Auto Center but its safe to say they'll be my local shop for the life of this car. Thanks Tolima!
Tolima's staff provided courteous, informative, and professional service. Their prices were much more competitive than other places we checked. They gave us details of the problems they found, and they showed us the pieces that were defective before they began work and offered the old parts to us upon completion. We first changed our a/c compressor and were so happy with the work that we returned a week later to have our car repainted. It looks like a new car. Thank you to Alex and Oswaldo and everyone at Tolima's. We wish we had found you years ago.
Price isn't always the cheapest, but service is fair and reliable.
Great, clean shop, excelent service. Friendly personnel.

Great experience, Alex was very clear, helpful, and thorough.
This shop is extremely customer friendly and concerned with your satisfaction. All of the staff are polite, respectful and helpful. They greet you with a smile and put you at ease immediately. Oswaldo does exactly what you ask him to do (call with estimate before beginning work, explaining what will be done) and does not play games. He is honest and addresses any concerns you have immediately. His mechanics keep the shop clean and seem to enjoy their job. What a special place!
