    Let me preface this by saying that I hardly ever write reviews of places, however my experience with Mike, completely warrants it!

    Mike is exactly what your hopes and dreams are made of when you need help! For context, I was on a road trip in my new to me 2014 BMW 335i, headed from Dallas, Texas up to Reno, Nevada. About 400 miles into our trip, I had a “Drive Train Malfunction” error come on and send me to the side of the road, being unable to maintain speed. After letting the car reset, we decided to limp towards Albuquerque. Given it was a Sunday afternoon, we began searching mechanics in the area with the slightest chance of maybe finding someone to help us out. We came across Mike, gave him a call and let him know we were on the way. We pulled into Mike’s driveway, and he got right to work. I had a blown air intake charge pipe, and with a little creativity, some “Apollo 13 Tape” and Zip Ties, we were back on the road less than 27 minutes later and headed for Northern Nevada. Adding a couple strips of Duct Tape here and there, we made it the 1000+ miles home.

    Additionally, Mike was great in helping to direct us in sending the exact parts we need to order (with the links to them all on our phones before we were back up to highway speed).

    Mike is an all around great small town mechanic that knows BMW’s and saved our trip! Thanks again!

    Traveling from Arizona to Minnesota and blew a bearing on our Master tow car trailer. Sunday Night and stranded on the 40 east of Albuquerque. Called Mike at Planet Green Automotive after trying a number of repair shops and he answered the phone. We had a tow truck on the way and Mike told us to bring it to his house and he would fix it. From the beginning Mike was so helpful and after delivering the trailer to his house had it fixed in a hour and a half.

    Mike could have charged us a lot to do what he did but was very fair with us. I can not thank Mike enough for his help and going out of his way to fix our trailer on a Sunday Night.

    If you need a repair Mike is the guy to go to!! Thanks Mike for everything you did for us to get us back on the road!

    I found Mike through a friend and am extremely happy that I did. I have a new X5 that I lease, but my fun car is a 10 year old Z4 Roadster. I bought it from the original owner who maintained it well but I knew things would go wrong. I had tried several local places for repairs in Cypress but wasn't really feeling that I was getting honesty. I was paying a fortune as well. I had Mike fix a few things recently. He took the car around 11am and I had it back by 7pm that night working great! He found a few minor things I wasn't aware were a problem and fixed them. He even showed me the parts that he took from my car. The price was about half of what I would have paid anywhere else. I felt comfortable about what he said and did to my car and feel that I have a mechanic for life! Thank you Mike for being an honest mechanic.
