Rudy is wonderful! Exceptionally knowledgeable, skilled and, most importantly, TRUSTWORTHY with repairing your vehicle. I had my Mini towed to him after being told repairs would cost me more than $3K at another shop. He fixed what I needed - not what I didn't - and charged me a reasonable and fair rate for his quick work. He's got a new customer in me :)

Great place to fix your car. Rudy is a kind and honest guy. He earned my respect and trust after he saved me from a repair I did not need. Turned out a dealership lied to me about my brakes telling me I need all-around pads replacement. Front was almost new!
Best car service business in the area! Rudy is an honest guy. My dealership told me I need brake pads front and rear. I went to Rudy for second opinion. He called me to my car and showed me my brake pads. Turns out they were not even half way worn out. Needless to say I only take my car to Rudy!
I wanted to send you a note about the way that you have treated me since the first time I brought my 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX to you for servicing. My first problem was a "check engine" light which kept coming on. You were able to diagnose an air leak in the fuel system and repair it for a very reasonable price. The light has not come back on.
On Feb. 4th I brought the car in because of a loud humming sound at highway speed which after a test drive you and I both thought might be a wheel bearing about to go. I was psychologically prepared for a substantial bill to replace the wheel bearing and hoping that there were no other parts damaged. I was quite surprised when you called to tell me that you had found an axle nut that was loose and adjusted it to the proper torque according to Subaru factory specifications. The noise is now gone and I no longer have the worry of a wheel possibly seizing up or even falling off. There are many auto service shops around that would have just replaced the wheel bearing even knowing that it didn't actually need to be replaced, just to get the money from the customer. You did the work that needed to be done to fix the problem. My approach to finding a good place to have my car serviced has always been to find a combination of a place that does good work mechanically and that I can trust to be honest with me. I have obviously found the right shop for me. If I have anyone ask me where to have their foreign car serviced I'll enthusiastically suggest Helmut's Foreign Car Service for excellent mechanical work and integrity that is unusual in today's marketplace.

My husband and I want to thank you again, for getting our eleven year old Lexus up and running in time for us to make our car reservation on the ferry to Martha's Vineyard, a few weeks back. The car is running beautifully and that's great. We will be seeing you for maintenance from now on.

Thank you so much for helping me out yesterday with my brake light. Please enjoy a cup of coffee on me. It's not everyday someone helps you without asking for anything in return. You made my day. Thank you!!
