  • Awesome Folks! They serviced my Audi A3 and Mini Cooper S and did an amazing job. They know these cars well. You know you are in good hands, All you have to do is look around at the beautiful Porsche cars being worked on. Those owners wouldn't leave their treasured cars just anywhere! Drop off was easy and convenient! Will definitely be back!

  • It can be a little scary owning a European car because they are often expensive to repair and maintain. Going to Schneider's was my best experience so far in having my BMW repaired. Their communication was excellent and friendly. And I left feeling that their pricing was very fair. I'll definitely go back!

  • I have recently moved to Santa Barbara and have found that Schneider Autohaus it the best and most trustworthy place to take my BMW 550i. They are 33% less expensive than the BMW dealer and faster at getting repairs done.

    Owners Paula and Henry give a personal touch that is missing from so many businesses today.

    I recommend you use their services.

  • Certainly the most knowledgeable Masters of German auto repair in the area. Always find the problem and try to fix it before taking the easy way out by replacing repairable components with new ones. The best!

  • A great team that always does a great job. If your auto is German, you won't find a better shop. Dealing with a local family business gives you the advantage of a trustworthy partner. They value relationship above "the book". Try that at the dealer!

    We have two German cars and they both go to Schneider for service. Highly recommended!
