i brought my volvo in to their shop on Friday because my little service light was on on my dashboard. i have heard mixed reviews about this shop but the labor rate was very affordable in comparison to the surrounding shops that i normally frequent. the staff was very kind and explained that my o2 sensor was faulty causing my gas millage to be off and my check engine light to be on. i gave them the go ahead and they gave me a ride home and picked when was finished.the price was less then i was quoted and i really appreciate the rides. i will be going back.

i brought my car over there this week for a tune up and i was having some weird issue that i had been having diagnosed at another local shop. they were very friendly and they exspained everything that was going on to me in grate detail. i was skeptical so i asked them to show me which they said "no problem". my rear strut mounts were causing the odd noise that know one could find. i got my struts and my tune up done that day. the price was more then fair and the service they provide has earned them a devoted customer

OSAR would like to comment on the review's henc. and hchaz( 1 person) has made. His father came into our shop on a friday afternoon
with the temperature outside around 90 degree's complaining he had no A/C. He had been a customer of our's for over 10 years. We discussed his option's, (1) replace the compressor or(2) install a By-Pass Pulley. We priced both option's for him. The By-Pass Pulley would not be available for 7+ day's. After calling around to several parts store, dealer's as well. His father was sitting in a cool office while calls went out for a pulley. He decided on the compressor as he didn't want to wait. Ocean St. does not buy parts on-line as henc/chaz felt we should have done. Maybe in Canada, where henc/hchaz was at during
this entire issue, they do and his father would prehaps have waited
longer then 7+days to get it. OSAR does not rip people off and if that were the case, his father would not have been our customer for 10+'
years. We have observed that henc/hchaz has written in every web page
comment section on OSAR and we expect his to continue but we would like to add that apparently, he was and is OK with having his father read around in 80-90 degree weather with no A/C.

I was told that I needed work done for a non-working signal light that would involve going inside the steering column blah blah blah estimate $300.00, I went back to my hometown to a trustworthy mechanic I knew, he replaced the bulb for a few dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OCEAN STREET AUTO REPAIR ARE CROOKS. Tried to dupe a little old lady!

My eleven year old car needed an ignition switch. Knowing the car repair business, I crossed my fingers hoping I would be able to "get" the part (since you never know with an older car - especially one they no longer manufacture). Yes, they did charge a hefty markup on the part. However, the repair came in UNDER the Flat Rate Book time allowed - they were very pleasant - and worked with my schedule. Then the switch had a problem - they took me right in - fixed it while I waited, politely - and no additional charges. Running a large shop is difficult - lots of overhead. I feel they did a fine job and as a woman on her own - I appreciated the way I was treated.

Pros: Under estimate - on time - backed up warranty on part

Cons: None

a/c compressor was bad. asked them to by-pass it. They told us it couldn't be done. Found out afterwards that manufacturer sells "kit" to bypass a/c. They lied to do a more expensive job and then raped consumer on parts pricing. Beware.

told us they couldn't bypass bad a/c compressor (found out later dodge makes and sells kit to do this. Made over 100% mark-up on retail pricing of parts in addition to charging $80/hr for labor. Stay away. Many honest repair shops in town.

Pros: when times were good, they were more honest

Cons: times are tough for OSAR, they are taking advnt of people

.

They told me I needed work that I didn't need. I thought it sounded fishy so had a second opinion. I would never go back and wouldn't recommend anyone go there.

I live in Mass. and I bring my car all the way to Maine to Ocean Street Auto for all my car repairs. They are, by far, the best at what they do. I highly recommend them. I brought my car there thinking there was no hope. When I got my car back, it ran better than ever before, and was very reasonable on the price. That is when I knew they would be the only place I could trust to work on all of our cars. The people that work there were very nice and took the time to explain everything they did. They treated me like family. I gave them a rating of "World class".

Every time I bring my car there, I feel confident and assured that it will be fixed properly. I give them a rating of world class. It's the only place I have found that is honest and not trying to take advantage of their customers. I highly recommend them to all of my family and friends.
