In this day and age of the big super stores and big auto dealers it is wonderful to find a family owned shop that cares about their customers. I will always bring my car to you.

Great shop. Brakes were making a weird noise. They didn't pressure us or try to upsell us. They told us the rear ones would have to be replaced at some point, but they didn't pressure us to get them done. We got just the front ones done

I was driving through Tallahassee when the alternator went out on my BMW. I just had it replaced in Austin, Texas less than 2 days prior. I found Furrin Auto and Frank was able to find a replacement alternator and install it very quickly.

I was told I needed work upwards of $1,000.00 after "trying" to fix the problem and charging me hundreds of dollars. They offered to credit me half of what I already paid them for their "fix" towards the $1,000+ job. I said thanks but I

Oh yeah! This is the place for honest, reliable, fast, and affordable car repairs, on your European cars.

So I brought the VW in for an oil change, and man oh man, they got it done up in only 3 hours. I didn't know you could drill, refine, and ship oil to Lil Ole' Tally that fast. They have the best tech ever, Speed Lightning, doing the work too.

OK so the best part was that they found lots of problems with the car. Better get them fixed, for safety's sake! Its a 2008 model year, so the car is well over due on these repairs. I believed every word they told me, and set up an appointment to drop the car off, get shuttled to work, and then pick it up when it was ready in a day or two.

Well, I got shuttled to work late, which every boss expects of their employees. And the day or two, ehhhh why get the car back so fast? It's not like I have any where to go. It was more like 10 repair days, over two weeks, because Monday was the holiday. And the best part-- the $1400 bill!!!

It's not unreasonable to ask to see the damaged parts. Oh, I needed a new tie rod? Well, show me the worn one, where the grease had leaked out like you claimed. My radiator was busted? Well, show me the leaky one. My airbag sensor wasn't talking to the PCM, ok that is kinda hard to prove, but show me the box for the new sensor, or even the old sensor. You did an alignment- What about the computer print out, showing me the car will drive straight and true? And what's this, a "recommendation" saying you want the car back in two weeks for, $2500 more in repairs?

"Well yeah, ma'am. You were such an easy push over the first time, we thought we would try it again!"

I won't be back.

An obvious take on "Foreign," Furrin has excellent diagnosticians and mechanics and a faithful following of those with perplexing problems as well as the day-to-day maintenance situations. Very honest, sincere, and capable. My Audi loves them (No Audi dealer in Tallahassee).

NGM further identifies himself with the Furrin Auto people as "these good people." NGM go back to running/operating your scam under the hoods of uninformed people.

I read the reviews left by another customer. The could not be further from the truth. I have been doing business with Furrin Auto for years and have NEVER found them to be dishonest. I don't think a shop could stay in business for 35 years by being dishonest. I am sorry that the other guy is such a deadbeat that hsi check bounced to these good people, and he got upset that they wanted their money for working on his car. I HIGHLY reccomend them for service.

Due to the limited number of auto repair shops that service volkswagens in Tallahassee, I decided to take my car to Furrin Auto. At first they seemed friendly, honest, and professional. This review covers several trips to Furrin over the span of a year and a half.
Each time I took my car to Furrin for an oil change, I ended up "needing" several addition repairs. Over time these repairs became very costly. But I gave Furrin the benefit of the doubt and continued to go there.
Then I needed a fairly major repair. They gave me a time estimate of about five days. The repairs took over 30 days.
Several weeks later, the car needed another fairly major repair. This also took over 30 days to complete.
After two fairly negative experiences with Furrin, I decided to take my car to the dealership for the final repair. The dealer was backed up for about a week, so I decided to give Furrin one more chance.
Like Deja vu, the repair took over 30 days to complete.
Since then, I have avoided Furrin and taken my car elsewhere.
In need of an oil change, I decided to try Furrin once more. I dropped the car off for an oil change and before I could get home, they called me and told me that the check used to pay for the last repair (over $4000) has not cleared. The check had indeed cleared about 9 months ago.
I returned to Furrin to pick up my car, but they refused to release the car until the bill was paid (for the second time). I tried to have my bank call Furrin, but their phone lines were out of service.
After about an hour in the repair shop, I managed to convince them, with the help of the bank, that the check had cleared and that they should release my car.
I have given Furrin several chances, but I will never return there.
Please do not make the same mistake.
Take your car elsewhere.
