these guys are great. we've been taking our honda civic there for years, and they've always been really honest with us. never have we felt like they've oversold us, and the work they do is top notch. i would highly recommend them for any sort of work your car needs

I'm new to Minneapolis, MN and needed brakes for my truck. At first I went to a small mom & pop shop nearby and asked for a quote but they were a bit disorganized and it would take too long for the job and quote I decided to look for

We live right by Amigo, so when our Honda started making a funny noise we took it here immediately because it was the most convenient place to go. We really wish we hadn't.

The service guys couldn't tell us a thing without running a diagnostic which ran around $100. We agreed to do it. Following that, they say the pistons on the car were going out, and that we pretty much needed a new engine ($3,500). We were in shock - the car has a lot of miles on it, but it's been pretty good for a long time.

Then, the mechanic suggested an alternative procedure for over $100, saying that sometimes it works on coating the pistons and making them run smoothly again. We tried it, but the car stayed in the same rough shape. Disappointed, we started looking for new cars on craigslist and began to think about trashing ours.

As a last minute resort, yesterday we took the car to a friend who works on cars but lives quite far away. We figured it was worth taking another look by someone we trusted, just in case something was missed. And thank god we did!

We found out that none of the things Amigo said were wrong with the car actually were. In fact, the problem could have been easily diagnosed without running a diagnostic scan. It was a simple spark plug wire replacement that, in total with parts and labor, cost ninety bucks!

The car is running great again, but no thanks to Amigo. They either lied to us to rip us off, or they were stupid enough to not spot a simple problem. I don't really know which one of those two things is worse.

Don't take your car there!

I moved to the Twin Cities 2.5 years ago and happened upon Amigo on accident. I needed an oil change and they are shell affliated and I was happy that I could put in on my credit card. Since then I have taken my car there for everything it has needed. I blew out a tire last spring the night before I left town. I called them on my way to the airport, and they towed my car in and fixed it while I was gone. They called me to tell me what was wrong and didn't make any repairs with out my approval. I had made an apt to take the car in for shocks previously for after my return, and they fixed that while the car was there as well. They are always friendly and never do work with out your approval so you know what the bill will be when you pick up your car.

Pros: Small customer oriented business where they know your name

Cons: it is located far from where I live

I was reffered to these guys 7 years ago and they have taken great care of me ever since. I've sent everyone I care about to them for honest assessments and consistent service. Todd remembers my name when I walk in the door and knows how much I am willing to spend. They have often reffered my friends to a junk shop for parts if available. I've never thought that they were out to swindle me. As a woman who doesn't know much about cars, I have always felt respected. It is run like a small family, as such, they do close for the occasionally close for a holiday or two but they are now open Saturdays for a few hours.
Finally, the shop is always clean and friendly.

I have been taking my cars to Amigo for ten years now with repairs of all types. I have always been well taken care of. No shop will do a perfect job every time for to err is human. In my experience Amigo stands behind their work 100%. The occasional problem was always cheerfully corrected.

On one occasion I had a check engine light that would not go off and they told me it was the catalytic converter. They refused to repair it, saying that I should go to a dealer, for the manufacturer was obligated to fix it under warranty. They could have repaired it to make money but gave me this advice for no charge instead.

Amigo is also very woman-friendly, I have referred my elderly mother, my neighbors, and many other women to their shop and all have said they were very pleased.

I had not been to Amigo for a while but went their recently. They did outstanding work on my van. There were some tough issues going on with it but were able to get it resolved. They also stand behind their work. They are all very friendly and trustworthy. I recommend them.

Amigos rules! I have had to take my car to amigos twice. The first time I was convinced that I needed new brakes and went in asking for new pads. The honest people at amigos told me that I was wrong! I didn't need new brakes at all! They saved me $$! The second time I took it in, I needed 2 patches on my 2 flat tires! The guys at amigos only charged me for one! And I was out of there in a jiffy. They are honest, friendly, and extremely respectful to women.
