These Guys are the very absolute best. My whole family has been repairing & manitaining our cars at Western & Bryn Mawr for the past 18 years. Back in 1994 My Car died out in the middle of the street 4 Blocks away from their shop when I called Sami he and 2 other guys came to my rescue, and help me push my car all the way to he shop, and never charged me a cent extra, they even bought me food as i was starving, and frustrated that my Car broke down. My whole Family, and I have been going to them ever since. Sami, George & the Crew are very courteous people . These Guys are very honest, and will show you what needs to be done they are professionals and will fix your vehicle at a reasonable price. We trust them 100% .

NEVER GO THERE! Horrible mechanics, severely damaged my car and harassed me over the phone. I brought my car, 1997 Mercedes C230 which needed to get instrument cluster fixed. It took them more than a month to get it "fixed" My husband and I came to the shop few times and always it "was not ready, come back next week" I finally picked up the car and I saw my plastic dash board severely scratched, literally vandalized, as they tried to take out the cluster I guess with screwdriver or something like it. I pointed it to Sami and he said that he does not know what happened . Usually Sami spoke with his mechanics about my car in foreign language in front of me (I think Arabic) so I cannot understand that they are talking about. I went to other shops and asked for an estimate for the damaged dash board. They gave me written estimation of more than $2000.00!!!!. I politely tried to resolve this issues with Sami. He not only didn't apologize for the damages, oh, no!!!! They called me 3 times on the phone with threats , Sami and Mr. Budakh, the president, and they told that I damaged the dash board myself before I brought my car to the shop and they will charge me for "free parking" while I was not able to pick up my car due to delays with repair. Plus he said that they should charge me $925 for an "outside consultation" on damages while they charged ONLY $125.00! I asked to give me a written detailed description of repairs made and they refused it, too!!!! DO NOT TRUST THEM YOUR CAR!!!!

These guys were recommended by a friend to have some repairs done on my car. The reviews online also looked promising. My parked car was hit by a drunk driver in the rear - all damage was to the rear. I originally had my car at another shop - Jersey Automative - who charged me incorrectly and for new parts when they used Used parts but that's another story. I took my car to Western Bryn Mawr to have some other things looked into. My car had started making a noise when I would drive and I couldn't tell where it was coming from. I had them replace the front bearings - non accident related. The noise improved. I ended up having to have them replace the back passenger bearing as well (the back driver bearing had already been replaced by Jersey Automotive - caused by the accident). Once Western Bryn Mawr replaced the back passenger bearing, the noise finally stopped. Yay right? WRONG. After these guys replaced my front bearings, my ABS and brake light then went on! I never had a problem with these lights before. Western Bryn Mawr is not an easy place to get to. Not near a highway, not near my house but like I said they were recommended so it was a HUGE pain bringing my car to these guys. Well, they told me the ABS light was on after they did the front bearings but that after I drove it for a few miles, the light should go off. NOPE! The lights remained on. It took me about a month to be able to bring my car back to them to have them look at the sensor again. They told me...all you do when you replace the bearing is unplug and then plug in the sensors - that the sensors could not have been from them replacing the bearings. They said it could be coincidental that they went bad. OR...ready for this...that it could be from the accident!!!!!!!!!! There was no damage to the front of my car from the accident!!! I'd had it with these guys and couldn't keep missing work to keep bringing my car back to them to have them not fix the problem they created. So, months later I finally was able to get my car into the Honda dealer....Honda tells me (AND shows me the sensor) that the ABS sensor was SEVERED!!!! And it HAD to have been from when the bearings were replaced! NOW I Am paying Honda to replace my sensors - at least the right one and they still need to look at the left one!! The sensors cost NINETY bucks for the part alone!!!!! Honda had to actually drill to get the sensor out! Who has time to fart around and bring their car all over creation and constantly back to the same shop who can't figure out the problem they created? This place is RIDICULOUS!!

I will NEVER take my car anywhere other than a dealership for repairs even if costs more. The cost at a dealer is worth the headache and nightmare places like this give you. AVOID this place unless you want to end up with more costs and problems with your car!!!

They fixed something on my car, but the mechanic screwed up something else. Been there twice still not able to fix his screw up and guess what the initial problem I went in with in the shop just came back. When i brought the car into his shop i heard a customer complaining about the fact that the charge you for new parts and they use rebuilt parts, many times they will rebuilt your own part .

I'm done with them, have paid $780 so far and now I have more problems with the car than before

We have been coming to this place since 1994. We love the people at Western and Bryn Mawr Auto Service, as they provide the very best service in town. They treat us with utmost respect, not only that, they also shop around for the best price available, they show us, and educate us about what's broken, and what needs attention immediately, or three months from now. We highly recommend this place, and could not be any happier with our Mechanics, George, Sami, Charlie, and the Crew. Keep up the good work guys.
John & Linda J.

These guys rock! Very reliable sevice, knowledgeble mechanics, never been let down yet by this repair shop in over 10 years. The service to my vehicle was not as expensive as I thought and that was really surprising, but these guys are honest and they try to help the customer as much as they can when charging for repairs.

These guys are funny, do good work, and you don't get the feeling they're looking for ways to screw you over. They don't mind hunting for the cheapest way to fix something if you tell them you're on a budget. My dad has gone to them since we moved to the city 12 years ago, and now that I have my own beater that needs occasional help, I've found them to be just as good to me.

These guys are so honest. I needed my alternator fixed and they repaired it instead of trying to sell me a new one. My car is running like a charm, and they made me eat lunch, on them, while I waited. They are excellent. And they have a mechanic who sings. Canta papi. Canta

I highly recommend taking your car to this repair shop. The guys who work here are honest and professional. They only fix what you need fixed and give warranties on parts. They will also give you a good deal and warranties on parts.
