They did a good job, up front about the repairs.

by - Verified Customer June 04, 2017

Thank you! The work was quick, and truck is back to normal. Satisfied.

by - Verified Customer June 04, 2017

Great experience overall. Ulmer's was sure to communicate all updates about the vehicle to us before doing any 'extra' work, and the employees were available to answer any questions I had when picking up the vehicle.

by - Verified Customer May 30, 2017

I love Ulmer's. Always have our cars serviced there. I was a little surprised when I took my son's car there last week and we were charged for an estimate. He wanted an estimate for a lock on his driver side door and could not afford to have it done that day but was charged for an estimate. We've had other cars there for different estimates and never charged before.

Another quality job performed by Ulmer's Auto Care. My car is getting older so it needs more attention. Ulmer's is upfront about prioritizing repairs based on importance. I'll be back, but I know I am safe in the meantime.

I have been getting vehicles serviced now for over 60 years. This shop has consistently found problems other shops had missed, and been candid about any they were unable to service properly.

I got map sensor and a pipe replaced and the staff at Ulmers were incredibly helpful and respectful. Every time we have to take a car in we are impressed with the service. I called to today with a question about a repair for a car we were thinking about purchasing, and Steve took the time to consider my question and answer it very thoroughly. We love Ulmers, wouldn't go anywhere else!

The availability of a loaner car is what brought me to Ulmers. The people and service are why I keep coming back.

It was the first time service with them after many other services going out of business or bad complaints and I heard this was a reputable place and we checked them out with the Better Business Bureau and we were very pleased.

by - Verified Customer September 20, 2012

I trust them and that is really the biggest part of it. They don't try to push anything on me that isn't necessary, they are very courteous, they are exceptional. They take care of me very good. I totally trust them with my car.

I have another car they just finished working on and I have been extremely pleased by the quality of the work. They are very nice, courteous and they offer shuttle service. I went to a Subaru dealer and got a quote and Ulmer's was much less. I am sold on Ulmer's.

I went to Ulmer's on the recommendation of a friend and I told them I wanted done and what parts to use and the price was close to what we had discussed. It's about a good experience as I've ever had with auto repair.

They are very polite, they keep you informed of what they're going to be doing. I got it out of the shop, I had to go to the hospital, and now my car is doing the same thing it was doing when I brought it in there. I'm sure if I take it back they'll get it fixed.

by - Verified Customer September 13, 2012

I was going to Volvo showroom to get the things repaired, I was getting frustrated but Ulmer's had the solution instead of me selling the car and getting a new one. I am definitely satisfied with Ulmer's.

We checked the prices of the parts they put on and they compared very high. I just thought they were pretty expensive. They were kind and lent me a car, prompt and very clean and professional.

by - Verified Customer September 05, 2012

The big thing for me is having an on-going partnership with Ulmer's as it relates to next steps to consider for my car. I have 200,000 miles and due to lay-offs I need to keep my car longer than I planned. They have been looking out for me and my cars best interest to keep it running that much longer until I can get another car. I am a total car person and ultra picky and question everything. I'm confident they do good work.

I felt comfortable immediately on my first visit to Ulmer's office. I was elated I could have a car waiting for me and didn't have to worry about drop off and pick up. The service was excellent and look forward to Ulmer's servicing my car again when needed. I am very pleased to be able to do business with "local" people. I was told of possible repairs needed for my vehicle in the near future BUT never felt pressured they had to be dome at that moment. I was told prices and labor costs up front ....VERY MUCH APPRECIATED. Thank you.

They said I needed a new front axel and it would not be safe for my son to drive back to dc. Took it immediately to Mercedes of Cincinnati where we purchased it and a new axel was not needed. Would have spent $1400!!

Ulmer's Auto Care has been in business for a long time; incredibly, since 1936. Cars were a lot different back then, but Ulmer's has kept up with technology by having on staff five technicians with 86 combined years of experience between them (and three are ASE certified). All work is backed by an unbelievable 36-month/36,000-mile warranty and they offer complimentary loaner cars, a shuttle to work or home, and also a free pickup and delivery service to make your automotive repair and maintenance experience as painless as possible. Plus, their Oil Change That Gives Back program has raised over $15,000 donations to area charities in the last five years.
