New York City-area car owners impressed by auto repair shops
Whether you live north in Northport or south in Seaford, you’re looking for great service, especially with service and maintenance of your car.
Here’s the latest Post of Happiness for great service from New York City and Tri-State auto repair shops as selected by the Angie’s List Newsroom staff.
Tedesco Auto Body, New Rochelle
Cynthia Oakes is on the road again, thanks to Tedesco Auto Body. “I was in a fender bender where another vehicle and I slid into each other on an entrance ramp,” she says. “When I dropped off my vehicle, I was a little stressed about the situation, but they made sure to make the experience as stress-free as possible. When the car was completed, they presented it to me in better condition than when I bought it from the dealer. The paint job and body repairs were impeccable! My car glistened!”
West Lake Auto Center, Colonia, N.J.
West Lake Auto Center kicked the customer service into high gear for Deirdre Lutz. “I had the brakes repaired, wheels aligned and the steering knuckle repaired on my car,” Lutz says. “When I arrived at the garage to pick up my car, they showed me a box that contained the parts that were replaced. They took the time to explain exactly what repairs were done. That is the type of customer service I admire. The price for all the work done was fair and reasonable. I highly recommend them to anyone.”
Morris Plains Automotive, Morris Plains, N.J.
Morris Plains Automotive worked tirelessly on Derek Brown’s vehicle. “I had a tire that had a nail in it and it was leaking air,” he says. “Their shop is close to my office, so I figured I could drop it off in the morning and pick it up later in the day. I made an appointment and the brought my car in right away. I was out the door in less than 20 minutes and they even equaled the pressure on my other tires. I was impressed with the overall ease of the process. I plan to use them for all my service needs in the future.”
Personalized Auto Polishing, Bay Shore
Christopher Adamou’s ride looks like new, thanks to Personalized Auto Polishing. “They performed a full auto detailing on my Acura that is 6 years old,” he says. “Owner Howard Baumgartner and his associate Jim stayed on the job for nearly five hours detailing every dirty crevice of my vehicle. My car has not looked this good since the day I purchased it and I couldn’t be happier. If you haven’t cleaned your car in a few years and want to restore your asset to its lost luster, call Personalized Auto Polishing.”
