Alternator was dying and we were barely moving with just enough electrical power for emergency flashers. Called Central Ave and Blake answered, told me to keep it going and bring it directly in, no appointment. We did not make it, vehicle completely died at intersection just around the corner from garage. Called Blake again and he sent a technician with a remote starter, we hooked it up and the truck started and this time we were able to get to the garage. Blake got our vehicle into diagnostics and got us rolling in a loaner. They were able to get a new alternator installed same day and we were back in our vehicle by close.

That was above and beyond what you can expect (and receive) from nearly all service providers out there.

I was already recommending Central Ave before this event and this only cements their position as a class act.

Regards,
MRG

I found Central Avenue Automotive in 2000 when I needed help with a used motor home I bought. Since then, they have taken care of all of my cars including:

2000 VW Jetta TDI
2000 BMW 323i
1983 Mercedes diesel
2006 VW Jetta TDI
2006 BMW 325xi
2006 Ford F350

They are not only incredibly competent in determining the source of any automotive issue you have, they are very friendly and priced very fair.

You won't be disappointed if you give them the opportunity to serve you.

I have little to no technical knowledge about cars and several months ago the "timing belt" broke off and blown the head gasket and the damaged the pistons...if you know about cars you will know this isn't a pretty picture... Anyways, normally this kind of job would take somewhere from 1 to 2 weeks and it can get very expensive, but the shop did it in less than a week and the costs came in much less than what other shop quoted me. I could have avoid all this trouble if I would have done my 100k services on time and change the belts and hoses...felt so stupid but rather than being talked down to like many other shops' mechanics; the guys at Central Ave Auto were extremely patient and friendly throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend this shop to my friends and families.

The team (Blake and Bill) are great and their rates are honest and fair. Keep in mind, no visit to a mechanic's shop is always perfect but frankly, these guys are straight to the point, honest and will tell you what you need to do. Give them a chance!

Great service and competative rates. I've used Central Ave Auto to perform service on three vehicles and highly recommend. They are professional, provide great details of what service will be and has been performed. They know what they are doing and do it well. I've never had any problems with any service. They are open M-F until 5pm. My only complaint, and it's not a biggy is that I wish they had extended hours or were open on Sat

Pros: Great service and knowledgeable

Cons: Parking can be a challenge and not open on weekends

I went to this shop since it was well-reviewed on this site. I would NOT go there again! I took my car in to have my headlights fixed, and they told me there were no less than four other completely unrelated repairs that needed to be done, including a transmission leak! I took my car to my usual transmission mechanic, and he put my car on a lift and showed me my transmission was fine--it was an oil leak instead!

I don't know if it was an honest mistake or if they were trying to bump up the bill and scam a female customer, but I'm not going back to a mechanic who can't even tell transmission fluid from motor oil! If you go there, make SURE you actually need any of the repairs they recommend! I gave them two stars only because they did fix my headlights like I asked.

I finally have a shop I thoroughly trust! I have taken my car in there thinking something was wrong - they actually called me and said no, it was just such and such!! I couldn't believe it!! And not once but two different times!! When I have needed work they have explained everything, given me the options both pros and cons and had everthing done in a timely manner.

Their prices are great, service is even better!!

Central Avenue Automotive is much better priced than any of the repair shops around. We always get the best deal when we take our cars to them. They often send out coupons and we have always had a great experience.
