    .

    I went to South High and graduated with a person (no name) who's family still owns a gas station/garage and I alway's took my cars to him and reccomended him to others. He treated me well but my brother in law came to me and said he got ripped off. I called a few other friends and they said they would never go back there and one of them reccomended John at Buchtel. \r\n\r\nSometime in 1983 I started with Buchtel and they have treated me, my family and friends fabulously. We have purchased so many used cars from John as well. He buys cars at the auctions and then does a full service on them and theres a 3 day right of refusal if something goes wrong (never has).\r\n\r\nLarry Mc.

    I took my cars to Buchtel Motors for all service and repairs for at least 10 years when I lived a block away, and now that I live across town, I still take my car there and would never go anywhere else. All staff are courteous, honest and know their business. Everyone is careful and thorough when communicating what work needs to be done before they do it and what the expected cost is likely to be. I have never gotten a final bill from them that is not close to the original estimate.

    I have an older car (92 Subaru) that I want to keep running but am not investing in for the long term, and Mike always graciously and patiently takes the time to discuss service options when they're available. For example, when the car needs a repair that could be done cost effectively with a used part instead of a new one, he will include that in the list of service options, realistically discuss the pros and cons, then let me decide according to what *I* want for my car. Over the years I have never felt that he mis-represented, mis-quoted, or tried to influence my decisions to his own advantage.

    They're a AAA shop, they have a rate arrangement with the Enterprise office not far away on S.Broadway if you need a rental car while yours is in the shop, and either place will shuttle you back and forth. They're located at the Louisiana light rail stop, and the Louisiana I-25 exit, so are easy to get to. When I have brought my car in with unexpected problems without an appointment, they have always added it promptly into their work schedule.

    My experience has been exactly like the other 4 & 5-star reviews. Buchtel Motors has *always* done right by me and my cars.

    My wife and I have been going to Buchtel Motors for many years. They have always gone well beyond the call of duty to treat us fairly and professionally. We would never take our cars anywhere else.

    I have been using Buchtel Motors for 7 years now and I have never found such a class act shop as Buchtel Motors. They are very friendly, honest and stand behind their work. I recommend Buchtel Motors any chance I have to family and friends. I cannot say I would change a thing about their service quality or atmosphere.

    I bought a 1989 Dodge pickup to use as a snowplow truck and they went through it and got it into tip top shape; only needed a fuel pump. they helped arrange to get the plow on it and it runs great! Good value and polite service
    they also service my 2000 Grand Cherokee and have always been top notch with anything. There was a weird problem with the starting and they fixed it right the first time! They are the best!!
    My 22 year old daughter goes there for her 93 Subaru and she loves them too !

    Buchtel has been working on my car 2 years. In the first year they put in a new radiator and 3 water pumps? This year he put in another radiator. Less than 2 years? The last time my car was in I asked him to please check the block to see if it was cracked as the car continued to overheat after the 2nd radiator. He said it was not cracked. I had another mechanic look at it last week?..cracked block, water in the oil??I could have sold the car for around $1200.00?..I sold it for $200.00. The last time my car was there for repair my locked car was stolen from his lot. He then charged me $746.00 to repair the damage from the theft. He over charged me for the parts to re-key my car. He charged me full price and refused to take any responsibility. This week he charged my debt card for additional work without my permission?.\r\nI think he likes to take advantage of women who come in alone???Never ever take your car to this guy!\r\n\r\n

    This mechanic is a thief. I know my way around a vehicle but often don't want to hassle with the more time intensive work. I knew it was recommended to replace the timing belt on my car since it was high mileage. The original estimate was in line with other shops. He did the work, took 3 extra days to complete it then he originally said and charged me an extra $200 for unforeseen excess of labor!!!!! He wouldn't release the vehicle until I paid in full.
    This guy is a liar and a thief. It is a darn good thing I didn't send my wife down there. Who knows what other unneccesary work he would've done to someone who didn't know their way around a motor.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't give this guy business. He deserves a lawsuit not his own business.

    If you have been ripped off by him contact me because I am going to small claims court and could use other stories like mine.

    Well I can't say I would go back to them again. Both my husband and myself have used them before and were satisfied. This time..... I just don't think Mike did his business justice by the price we had to pay. Please in this economy, fair is fair and I don't think what we had to pay was fair. I called 5 other places and Buchtel was in the middle with the price.... when it was all said and done..... I paid the most of what others said it would cost.... O well goodluck! Woops they forgot to mention they had a shuttle service. Thank goodness I live a mile away and could walk! Seems to me there just seemed to be huge miss communication between myself and anyone who worked there.

    I have been using Buchtel Motors for the family car for several years. They have proven to be honest, and they stand behind their work, don't think you can ask for more in a mechanic. I have recommended them to family and friends in the past and I do the same now.

    Thank you, John Everest, for your quick, honest response to our problem. Our car problem was resolved in a professional manner. John did an outstanding job of taking care of us and did so without compromising his integrity nor that of his business.\r\n\r\nWe would highly recommend that you contact John if you have any questions concerning your vehicle while it is being serviced in his establishment. We didn't realize that we were not speaking to the owner when we were there, and we feel that a lot of problems, frustration and misunderstanding could have been avoided if we would have to ask to speak to the owner.\r\n\r\nJohn is a good person to do business with.\r\n\r\nRon Derdowski
