Cleveland area auto repair shops go the extra mile

Whether you live in Parma, Shaker Heights or downtown Cleveland, you need a trusted local mechanic to take care of your car.

Here’s the latest Post of Happiness for great service from Clevelandauto repair shops as selected by the Angie’s List Newsroom staff.

Christopher’s Car Care, Tallmadge

Discovering Christopher’s Car Care was like finding a new world for Wayne Porter. “I’ve been taking my vehicles here for over a year now. I was unhappy with the service at another auto repair shop I went to,” he says. “Every time I go here I have a great experience. Everyone there is polite and wonderful at their jobs. They go out of their way to fully explain what the problem is, what the solutions are and what the cost will be. They categorize items so I know what’s most pressing. I appreciate their down to earth approach and no pressuring. They are just good, honest, genuinely nice people.”

Center Heights Service, Beachwood

Center Heights Service keeps Kristin Kaelber on the road with no hassle. “Tom Carey, the owner, runs a tight ship,” she says. “He offers expert advice and quality auto service. I first found this shop when a car dealership wanted to charge me several thousand dollars to fix my new Honda van. I went to Center Heights for a second opinion. Tom told me that I didn’t need all the repairs the dealership suggested. I’ve been going to Center Heights ever since. All the mechanics are polite and responsive. I also like that they have a gas discount program when you get work done on your car.”

Madison Avenue Auto Service, Lakewood

Madison Avenue Auto makes trusting another mechanic easy for former mechanic John Shields. “I used to be a mechanic for a living so I can tell you that these guys know what they are doing,” he says. “This particular vehicle is a nightmare to work on because it’s customized and nothing is ever by the book with it. The guys at Madison helped me hunt down problems and they charge a fair price, unlike any other shop I’ve ever been to. They get the job done quickly and always offer a free car wash with every service. The brake job they did was great. They even install my own parts in certain situations.”

Transmission Engine Pros, Cleveland

Transmission Engine Pros handled the insurance paperwork for Colin Thompson so he could enjoy his ride. “This was a great experience. I was at work and had to get my car towed there,” he says. “They took care of everything for me and made sure to print a different receipt for the towing so that my insurance would reimburse me. They diagnosed the problem and fixed it in a day. They only charged $130 for their labor and were very friendly. I highly recommend them.”
