I've never had a shop refuse to even inspect a vehicle before, so when I was refused an appointment and then hung up on yesterday after letting them know I needed my 1993 Honda Civic looked at for a check engine light issue it came as a surprise, especially given all the 5-star reviews. I'm a student at Kent State, but I was willing to take my money (saved $2000) to this shop in Cleveland to have any and all repairs done to make sure my car was ready for an upcoming road-trip.

I realize the car is older, but, as a college student who paid for it in cash, I didn't realize this would disqualify me from being seen at certain shops. I'm sure the service is fantastic for anyone who has a vehicle that meets their standards for service, but I felt it was important for anyone with an older car to see my experience and be prepared for it before making the call.

I was a little hesitant taking my 2008 Audi A4 to a mechanic that wasn't at the dealership for the first time because Audi's are extremely difficult to work on. However, I was more than blown away by how hard Gilbert and his staff at DAC work. He was able to diagnose a problem with my vehicle that nobody else could fix. He went literally out of his way to make sure I was happy. He's not only a great mechanic, but a good guy as well. As long as i'm in the Cleveland area, Gilbert has a client for life. I normally would never write a review, but felt he and his staff deserve to be recognized for their hard work and great prices.

I have never written a review ?? so know that if I??m writing one, it??s because I feel awfully moved to spread the word.

My father was a patient in Cleveland Clinic over the holidays. I had driven 6 hours to visit him and then eventually take him home. His SUV had begun to overheat once I arrived in Cleveland and I was panicked being in a city so far from home with a sick father I was planning to transport 6 hours back. I did a Google search and found Detroit Auto Clinic; every single review was good ?? which is unheard of! So, I called Gilbert and spoke about my issues and he said to come in.

I honestly cannot say enough positive things about Gilbert and Detroit Auto Clinic. He took me right away (also, let me say that I am a woman and that can tend to work against a person at an auto garage?), assessed what I would need and fixed only what it would take to get us home. No price gouging, no making up ten other things that were wrong ?? just honest, old school business. I was so relieved; he restored my faith in the world!

If you are in the Cleveland area, or are ever in need while traveling through, I simply cannot recommend Detroit Auto Clinic and Gilbert enough. He was a life saver and I am forever grateful!

I cannot tell you how satisfied I was with my experience at DAC. I took my 2002 BMW in for repair in the morning and was called that same day to pick up my vehicle at the quoted price The quote was fair and service was great.

This is the FIRST auto repair place that I have actually walked out of happy!!! I have been there three times for various things, and never disappointed with the work.

Prices were beyond fair, Gilbert and Jose are awesome!, Work was timely and no unnecessary repairs or expenses!!

In fact, his work proved that the car dealer who worked on my car before lied about using new parts!! And the dealer was one of the highest rated for service in my model of car!

Make sure you look hard for their garage, because it is set back from the road a bit... I never knew they were there until I found them on google.

Best car repair guys in Cleveland!

After calling around to numerous auto shops I had finally came across Gilbert at Detroit Auto Clinic. His estimate was well below the other for a replacement transmission in a 2003 GMC Envoy. So I reluctently took it there thinking they ma have to be cheaper because they mey not do good work. Boy was I wrong! I received a phone call telling me it was ready 3 days early, bonus. So after picking up the vehicle, my wife and I then went to SouthEast PA. A 300 mile jaunt from Cleveland. I debated on taking it but figured it would be one hell of a test. 600 miles round trip and not one iccup. I have been driving it for close to a month and have had no problems what so ever.
Thank you Gilbert for letting me trust an auto shop again after to many let downs over the years. You will definately have my business again and anyone who may ask if I know a good mechanic.

If you have car trouble when you're staying at the downtown Cleveland hotels, or are in town for a game or to visit the museums, Detroit Auto Clinic is an excellent first option for repairs. I was stopping in Cleveland overnight with my family, one stage in a long vacation drive from the East Coast to the Midwest. As I was getting into town I realize that my car was running very hot. Gilbert made time to look at the car on a Saturday morning, identified the problem, and had it fixed within two hours, all at a very, very reasonable price. The car ran perfectly for the remaining leg of the trip, an eight-hour drive on the interstate on a 90-degree August day.

Detroit Auto is not far from the Cleveland city center (head down Superior across the Veterans Bridge, straight onto Detroit Avenue). The garage is set back from the street a bit, so keep your eyes peeled. The shop is on the city bus line, in case you have to drop the car off for a while; check with your hotel or the transit authority for schedules, fares, and routes. After dropping off my car I walked from the shop up to 9th, and walked back when the car was ready. If you're uncomfortable walking in an unfamiliar city, or the weather is bad, a cab ride from the downtown hotels, museums, or stadiums would take only a few minutes.

I'm packing Gilbert's card in my car's emergency kit, in case trouble strikes again when I'm near Cleveland. He turned what should have been a really stressful problem on a family vacation into a minor sidetrack. Were I a local, I'd certainly be a regular customer of Detroit Auto Clinic.

I called them for an estimate, it was half what my regular shop wanted to charge me. They even dropped me off and picked me up after the work was done. My car is running great again, Glad I made that phone call.

Look no further, this is the shop for all of your Auto Repair needs. Detroit Auto Clinic is friendly, knowledgeable, professional and experienced. This mechanic knows foreign & domestic cars very well. I took my BMW '03 in for a electrical problem and front brake service. At an extremely reasonable price, got my Bemmer repaired the same day!!! Ask to speak with Gilbert...

Gilbert is easy to talk to, does not mind explaining what is wrong with your car even to those of us who have no idea what goes wrong with cars, and he does an excellent job fixing serious car troubles at extremely reasonable prices. The estimates are always right on price and done when he says they are going to be done.

I have had suspension and brake work done recently, and both cars were diagnosed correctly and fixed accordingly. I can only recommend this place to anyone looking for an honest, dependable, and inexpensive place to fix ones car!

I was looking for someone to repair my 96 explorer for the check engine light on and engine misfire. the ford dealer told me that i needed 2 fuel injectors & THE COST FOR PARTS AND LABOR WAS OVER $700.00. After calling many shops with crazy prices, I took my explorer to Detroit auto clinic, I was scared at first because his price was one third the cost at the dealer. SO I stayed the whole time and watched them. Once they got the injectors out, Gilbert SAID I didn??T need them. I told him to put the new ones in anyway. He was right: the check engine light stayed on and the truck kept on misfiring. I went back to Ford & told them, they said they didn't know the reason. I went back to Detroit Auto clinic AND 1 hr later they told me it was a bad exhast valve on #6 cylinder.

SINCE THEN MY SON IN LAW HAD HIS CAR WORKED ON THERE AND THE SERVICE WAS GREAT AND THE PRICE WAS BETTER.

IF YOU HAVE A CAR THAT NEEDS WORK NOW OR IN THE FUTURE I WOULD GIVE THEM A TRY. WE HAVE SAVED A GREAT DEAL OF MONEY FOR CAR REPAIRS.

I had a great experience here. Gil was friendly and helpful. He didn't talk down to me b/c I was a young woman. He seemed open and honest. I was getting an estimate on brakes, and he took me with him on his test drive of my car. Then, right in front of me, he put the car up, took the tires off and took a look. I got front pads and rotars for a really god price. The actual cost was exactly what he estimated it would be, and he took care of one other small thing for no cost while he was at it. I highly recommend his business.
