Towed my BMW 1993 to Grays to find out why it wouldn't start ? About a week later after installing the "wrong" Crankshaft positioning Sensor, and a faulty fuel pump. I recieved a phone call from Matt letting me know that my total bill would be $802.76 and to bring a Tow truck. So I pay the bill and go Tow my car from their to Bloomington BMW, where they have to replace everything that Gray's just did at my new expense of $1.300.00 and BMW couldn't get it right either. All Bull aside, Grays is a total ripoff for Imports fore sure. They don't have the up to date Diagnostic Equipment, and some of the machanics lack the correct training and know how to properly fix and return your car running. Not to mention the price hikes they try pulling on ya until ya know their supplier better then they do. Lol The Only place to bring your Import is Top-Gear on Lake Street under the 35W bridge almost East side of It. To set up an appointment Call Jonas at 612-724-8901 Somebody you can trust, I give you my word. . . .2401 East Lake Street MPLS It's not the old Schelen's that you remember. I Swear !

It is not every day that you bring your vehicle in and the repair is less than you expect!

I brought my car in and asked them to find out why the check engine light is on, to check out the corrosion on the battery connections and to check the brakes. Sounds like a $1000 repair to me. $277.94 later I found out that the engine light is on because I never drive it very far, brakes are fine and the battery is 6 years old. Replacing the battery was all that I needed!

This isn't the first time they have pleasantly surprised me.

David was my tech each time. Ask for him!

I would recommend them!!!!!!!!

Schelen Gray is awesome! Honest service and they always do their best to keep costs down. They fixed my power locks and even reattached my bumper. Unfortunately, I've had to take my car in a few times (separate incidents), and have always experienced courteous, quick, and honest service. I highly, highly recommend them.

I had my first experience with Schelen-Gray yesterday. I couldn't tell you if they charged a fair price, because I've no experience in that area. I can tell you that they quickly diagnosed a problem that was stumping another repair shop. When I dropped my car off, I asked for some bus directions so I could get to work. A woman working there offered to drive me, which she did. I had unexpected difficulty getting there to pick up my car by 5:00PM, so I phoned and Matt agreed to wait for me. Everyone was polite, professional, and really, really helpful.

Awful, awful, awful. Total rip off... First of all, they charged my husband $300 for a new battery two years ago that would have been $100 anywhere else. We just had it replaced at a really great Batteries Plus in SLP because it stopped working due to their faulty installation! These installers informed us that Crappy Schelen's never VENTED the battery which was in the backseat. Apparently all the acid vapors have therefore been leaking into the car, which is our primary vehicle when we go anywhere with our now nine month old son. I am extremely mad that this so called "specialist" car repair place could miss something so obvious! Hopefully there are no side effects from this and luckily we caught the problem before all the corrosive acid buildup that ruined the battery started an electrical fire. This "car repair" shop is a waste of space and anyone that goes there is getting ripped off and putting themselves at risk of some bigger mechanical failure if they don't even know how to install a BATTERY.

I have used Schelen Electric for electrical work on cars I have owned since the first car I brought in for work in 1977. They have never disappointed me. They are able to spot the problems and fix them. I have never had to bring a car back because the problem was not fixed the first time. Their fees are reasonable and service dependable. I have no reservations about depending upon them for their analysis of the issues and ability to fix my car the first time around without gouging me on price.

I work at Fairview, last Tuesday I was headed home from work when my car began to puff and chug, different troubleshooting lights flashing on the dash. I decided to randomly exit off of 94 to Snelling in hopes of finding a garage to help. I pulled into the back parking lot of Schelen-Gray and shut my car off, even with the key out, it sounded like the car was still running. I ran into the back door of the shop and explained to the mechanic my concern, he instantly grabbed the cable cutters, got another mechanic to grab a fire extinguisher, got a few more mechanics and out the door we went. By this time the car was starting to smoke and really heatup. The starter was burning, the original mechanic clipped the cable to the battery, all made sure the situation was under control and literally saved the day! I cannot even tell you what the outcome could have been without the quick, skilled actions of the mechanics at this shop. After everything cooled down, everyone at the shop expressed concern for me and reassured me, everything would be ok, now. They honestly were awesome. From offering me something to drink to making sure I had a ride home---full service. I can only imagine how regular customers with an appointment are treated, if this is how they treat a complete stranger. Thank you Schelen-Gray and crew for being there and being so professional! Your quick actions made a big difference. Also, thanks for your follow through on getting me back on the road.

In my opinion anonymous experiences have the same value. I have known Gary and his work over the last 20 years. He and his crew have always been quick, quiet, on-time and always professionally polite. This crew solves problems!
