Found Schafer's in 2008 after visiting a variety of garages who quoted me outrageous prices ($1,000-$1,300) on replacing my timing belt. Friend's suggested Schafer's so I gave them a try. They were very informative (provided me with a print out of my vehicle informing me of what was due on my vehicle and when). Found out my timing belt did not need to be replaced for another 10,000 miles. And the price they quoted me ($400-$500) was 1/2 the cost of all the other garages I visited. So, when 10,000 miles had come and gone, I went in to replace the timing belt. In the end, the price was less ($350) than what they quoted me months before. GREAT DEAL!!!!

I have them do my oil changes and keep my car up to date on all the small things that need to be serviced. If I can get a part cheaper somewhere else, they advise me, no run around.

Just great guys, knowledgeable and honest service.

I don??t think I??d even give this place one star. My power steering went on my car and being new to the city someone recommend this place. What a nightmare. After telling me I needed all this other work done and ??fixing? my power steering I left with a huge bill and a ??fixed car?. A DAY later my power steering went out, A DAY LATER!!! I called back, the only plus I would give this place is the guy on the phone was nice, he told me to bring it back in and they??d take a look. Once again they ??fixed? my power steering and once again my power steering went out. I took it back to them FIVE times and every time a day or less later it would break, one time my power steering stop working hours after picking it up from them. I finally went somewhere else and had it fixed and over 2 years later I still have power steering that works. I like to flip them off every time I drive by.

Schafer's is first come first served and they are prompt, friendly, and honest. I was referred here from a friend when another place fixed a problem and more followed. The man at Schafer's found the problem fast (a loose something or other) he fixed it no charge and offered to write up what he found for me to take to the other mechanic if I wanted to.
Now I always go here and it is so pleasant that it doesn't seem like a chore to get my car tuned up.

i have gone to them a few times and have had repeated problems. my check engine light is on and when i took it to them, it turned off for a few hours and was back on. this happened on a few occasions. they put the wrong spark plugs in my car, they over filled my oil and caused more problems. just not satisfied with them.

It's hard to find a mechanic you can trust so I am so glad my friend's introduced me to Schafer's. You can always trust they will fix only what's necessary, fix it well, and charge you a good price! They understand that we don't all have endless cash to put into our car repairs and do not try to milk you for all of your money. I've even experienced going in there thinking I needed certain things done and them telling me - no you can wait 6 months on this or that. I've moved out of Philly to Jersey but still drive in whenever I need a repair. I made the mistake one time of going somewhere else near my house and it was a disaster- hundreds of dollars spent - and no improvement in the car-- I will not make that mistake again! They are a real gem!

Schafers saved me from a horrible mechanic. They fixed my car did not do anymore than needed. The price was below what I was quoted at other places. They were very friendly!
I took my car here after a bad experience with a sneaky mechanic. Schafers found the problem and helped me get the money back from the other mechanic.

I have friends that have used them for years and always good service.
