I brought my car to Fred at Glendale because of the positive reviews I found online. He failed to fix my car, couldn't figure out what was wrong with it, and refused to return my money. I originally took my car to another shop, had diagnostics performed, and received an estimate based on a bad mass airflow sensor. The estimate struck me as being high, so I called around and sure enough, Fred said he could replace it for less money. What Fred didn't tell me was that he wasn't going to make ANY efforts to confirm the first shop's diagnosis. He didn't even bother asking who did the diagnosis until it was clear that it was wrong. Fred also waited until after it was clear he didn't fix my car to let me know that a mass airflow sensor appearing to have gone bad can signify a VARIETY of problems. Some professional. In his defense, when my car was displaying the exact symptoms after it was "fixed" and I took it back, he did make some efforts to make sure the part he put in wasn't bad. He also FINALLY performed some diagnostic tests!!! Unfortunately, not only did he not fix my car and keep my money, but he also couldn't tell me what was wrong. Maybe I just got unlucky and the positive reviews on here are a more accurate barometer for this shop, but all I know is that I'm out several hundred dollars and my car is still messed up. I'd advise you to go elsewhere.

I called about an electrical issue with my Toyota Camry after my usual place couldn't duplicate the problem (many MANY days and $30 later. Glendale referred me to Chi's auto on the East side.

I appreciate them knowing when to refer out and not wasting more of my time and money.

And my neighbors speak highly of them.

Glendale Automotive is the only place we go for repair. Fred and his team of technicians are a class act. Intergrity. We have over a 100 cars in our fleet.

Fred and Paul are great! They have been helping my dad and I for years now and know both our names and cars by heart. They are fair priced and always extremely helpful. They never try to up-sell me and it is always a pleasure doing business. Just wish they were open weekends.

As a mechanic myself I appreciate Fred and all of his employees at their shop I have been taking my cars there for 3 years (since I sold my lift). I feel they appreciate it when I bring my car in and know exactly whats wrong with it. The prices are far better than a lot of places I have been, when I took my tracker to the dealership I bought it from they tried to mess with the air pressure in my tires by letting air out. I drive all the way from Greenwood to Broad Ripple just to have my car worked on. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND GLENDALE AUTOMOTIVE. Just tell Fred you read Jasmin's review on insider pages!

I have taken my car to Glendale Automotive on a couple of occasions for minor repairs. I had no problems with the quality of their work. I always think that car repairs are a bit overpriced, and their rates are about the same as others I guess. The only complaint that I have was that it took them a day longer than they said it would to complete the job, which was a major inconvenience. But I would still probably return just because they're nice and it's convenient.
