.

Late this summer (2012), I brought my 2006 Ford to Wayne's garage to be inspected and have a broken window in the cap replaced. My roommate at the time warned that I should take my truck elsewhere, but the online reviews seemed to be fair, so I gave them a shot.

I brought the glass and the gasket to the shop, so all that needed be completed was the install. On the first try, the glass was installed without the gasket (which was claimed to have been thrown away by a mechanic they claimed to have fired just that day). Needing my truck for a cross-country journey a few days later, I asked that they do the job right. On the second try, windshield caulking was instead of a gasket to try and make up for the oversight. Despite the work being a bit sloppy, the window has yet to leak, so my complaints (for the window install) stop here.

The other work completed, in order for the truck to pass inspection, was where things got worse. Included in the $1400+ bill was a front and rear rotor replacement. The day after I received my truck, I called back and said there was a knocking noise coming from the rear wheels. I brought it in, and the mechanic that worked on the truck rode with me around the block and inspected underneath the vehicle. He claimed that the noise was coming from rotors that had not yet set correctly with the relatively new brake pads, and that with time they would wear together and the noise would go away.

During my cross-country journey, the noise did not go away, but got worse. Further, the front brakes were forced to compensate for the inadequately working rear brakes, thus heating up so much, bearing grease has leaked and splattered all over my front rims. I took it to a shop here on the west coast who honored the warranty Wayne's Garage's work falls under. They discovered the reason for all of this is that when the rear rotors were originally replaced, the pads should have been as well. My drive across the country was with parts that did not match.

Luckily the warranty covered some of the new bill, but it still cost me $300+ to make sure my truck is safe to drive and brake. The shop out here did fantastic work and all is working fine now.

I am upset that I had to repay for work that was claimed to have been done correctly in the first place. I am also upset that I went against a friend's recommendation to forgo Wayne's Garage and try someone else. They had heard that there were better shops to use in West Philly? my bank account and I now know there probably are.

Wayne's Garage is awesome. Wayne (the owner) will call you at work or home or on your cell if he has any questions, and he's great about explaining things in layman's terms. You will always get a good price and quality work. You can't go wrong with Wayne's Garage!

I've had nothing but good experiences at Wayne's Garage. I had 3 oil changes, 2 state inspections, and a windshield replaced, and each time the price was fair, the work was done timely, and the customer service was friendly and helpful. I will continue to use this shop for all of my automotive needs and would recommend it without hesitation.

I would avoid servicing your car at this garage, especially if you know little about cars. They will find a way to rip you off while purporting to provide high quality customer service. Once they have your car they will find all sorts of unanticipated problems and charge you a premium to fix them. For instance, I had taken my car in for a routine inspection and they said they needed to replace all four struts on my car, even though I later found out that the rear ones, with a lifetime warranty, had been replaced a year ago. (The car was given to me by a relative and I did not have the history of repair on me when I took it in for inspection.) I later found out this out after telling a family member how much I paid for this (over $1700.) Most decent mechanics would charge $1300. They also incorrectly diagnosed a problem when my engine light came on, telling me I needed to have both oxygen sensors replaced, when in reality the code that came up for the problem was for the catalytic converter.

In short, Wayne's Garage business model is too extract as much money from you as possible in return for a ten percent coupon for your next visit.

Avoid them like the plague.

For a reliable, honest mechanic in Philadelphia, try Sam's Garage. He is cash only but probably the best all around mechanic in the city. And he is absolutely trustworthy.

I started going to Wayne's Garage in 1999 for regular maintenance to my vehicle. They have always been professional, helpful and prices are reasonable. I would strongly recommend Wayne's Garage to others.

After two weeks of phone calls not returned, three completed by dates that were not met and two weeks to realize I needed yet another part I pulled my car out of this shop. I recomend not taking your car here. Try Lei's they are far better.

I have gone to Wayne for several years now, and I have found him to be reliable and trustworthy. I have an older car so it needs work every once in awhile, and I'll always take it to him. When you drop your car off, you have to park it on the street, and that's back where it goes before you pick it up. If only he was open on the weekends (at least Sat)!

Edit: I recently had to have my car towed because the clutch didn't work at all. I was afraid that the whole clutch would have to be replace, something I couldn't afford, but after looking at it, Wayne said only one part needed to be fixed, costing far less than I feared. Thanks Wayne!

PROS: Reliable
CONS: No weekend hours
