Sadly, after years of exposure to this company I must say that Joe, the owner is a pathological liar. After one oil change the air conditioning stopped working. After paying to have it fixed, they tell me there are major water leaks and oil leaks. After a second oil change the air conditioning magically stopped working again and Joe claimed it was because the car was overheating and the air system was shut down. I was shocked. The car wasn't even in the warm zone. I called them on it and they reconnected the air conditioning and it worked fine. Did I need the air conditioning fixed in the first place? Probably not. I have yet to add water to the overflow tank in months. The car doesn't have a water leak. Yet, they told me the radiator, water pump, etc.. had to be replaced asap. My daughter bought a car from them which they obtained on a mechanics lean. The said it ran great, that one of their mechanics had been the only repairman on it for years and new it thoroughly and he swore it had no problems. We paid $600 shortly after purchase it for work on the water pump and hoses. Within 1 week we had to pay Firestone $1,500 for front end work including a broken weld bracket that made the car dangerous to drive! Over $2,000 after purchase expenses within 1 month of buy the car they claimed ran great and had no problems! Watch out for these guys, they're very dishonest but Joe puts up a very convincing false front.

Paul showed interest in a MB we had been on our lot for some time. He took this car to his technician for a Prepurchase Inspection. His tech gave approval so Paul purchased it "As Is" with no warranty. Anything could go wrong with an older vehicle When it's been sitting for a while. This customer has called us pathological liars. This individual is very unprofessional and we will not go to his level of immaturity. Our reputation speaks for it's self and there is nothing further to say.

German Motor Works has done wonderful work for me over the past several years. I have also spoken with several other customers during the years and everyone I have talked to has been pleased with their service. They are professional, prompt, and give you pricing ahead of time. Joe is runs a remarkable shop and employs high caliber mechanics. I wouldn't take my car anywhere else!
