I have been using Mark for decades and have recommended my friends to him. I like the way he treats me, the way he talks to me and the fair price he charges. I recently had my exhaust system replaced, Mr. Tire wanted $1200 and Mark did it for $600 for the top of the line system. Don't be fooled by other repair shops, I trust Mark.
I have been taking my truck and cars to Mark for over 30 years. I have sent my friends there. I have sent relatives there. I have sent boyfriends (and their ex's) and their relatives there. I even sent a new boss once. (I go for regular service and haven't had a major service in a long time, so can't give specifics on price other than an oil change.) Mark Armiger is honest, knows what he's doing, and is generous on his price. He's one of the good guys! seriously...
I agree with you mklied620, I got hooked up with Mark per chance. I had just had my car to meineke in Eldersburg it was quite expensive & very poor workmanship. I was in Westminster that night the day I picked up my car from Meineke, only to break down & have my car be towed in. Bill towed it in (I would highly recommend his as well- Bill's Auto Body & Towing 410-795-8442) he suggested I take my car to Mark. I was a little hesitant @ first but he asured me I would be very happy with Mark. Well as it turned out I am very happy with Mark & would only use him again for all my auto needs. Price was very competitive & I think he is very honest! by: blueeyes2charm on June 30, 2011
I don't know what the other person to write a review is talking about, but Mark Arminger has been working on my family's cars since before I was born. When I started driving in 1997, the only person to whom I took my car was Mark, whether it was for something small like an oil change or something much more extensive and expensive. From 2006-2011 I had to take my car to the dealership where I bought it on order to honor a very good warranty, but as soon as the warranty expired, I took my car back to Mark the first time I needed it. Mark and his staff are very honest, very competitive in terms of their prices and the best auto mechanic in the area. My friends and family have used him numerous times over the years and there has never been a single complaint. I would highly recommend Mark and Arminger Automotive to anyone needing car repairs.
The mechanic will use your vehicle for his own personal use, including taking it home in a blizzard because the clutch in his own vehicle is bad. He'll do it without asking, and he thinks there is nothing wrong with that policy. Of course, you'll be paying for all of the gas he burns, and any damage he does while abusing your vehicle while to trying to get it out of the snow where it sits stuck in front of his house.
