  • I was ready to give up on my X5 until I stumbled across Almost New Auto on the web, I wanted one last opinion before I got rid of it.The dealership was just going to start throwing new parts at it, and they gave me an estimate of $3800 (it's only worth 12k in trade). Thankfully Almost New Auto took a little more time to diagnose the problem and saved me 2/3 of the dealership est. I won't be going back to the dealership.

    After the parts were replaced the mechanic showed me the parts that had been removed and why they were failing. He'd even cleaned up the engine compartment!

    I'd give Almost New Auto 5/5 stars for the work carried out and for keeping me in my BMW. Better than dealership service. I recommend this mechanic to all of my colleagues and friends with imports. A guy you can trust not to rip you off and who takes the time to explain the problems to you. Excellent service for a fair cost.

  • I wouldn't take my BMW to anyone else. I drive nearly an hour and a half to have my car repaired the right way the first time. Honest, great mechanic. Willing to go the extra mile to make sure that your needs are addressed. I would recommend Rob to anyone looking for quality work.

  • After years of doing our own car repairs on BMWs, we know what is involved and also know that Robert is the best mechanic we have ever encountered. Robert's work is superior - - our vehicles (and he has worked on 3 of them for us) have never run better! Just as important as his mechanical skills is the fact that Robert is very honest and ethical. Robert performs his work on time and for the amount he quotes; there is no subterfuge or dishonesty. We were very fortunate when another local businessman/friend referred us to Robert and Almost New Auto. Now we are very pleased to call him friend and to refer him to anyone we meet. All of us depend on our vehicles to get us around and take care of us. There is nothing more frustrating when our vehicles have problems or break down altogether. We can't even begin to tell you how comforting it is to know someone like Robert who is able to take care of our vehicles and put us safely back on the road. What a Blessing! We ap preciate Robert Palmiter and Almost New Auto for providing superlative service and support!!

    Rob was awesome. He got me into his shop same day. He was extremely thorough with the evaluation / diagnoses. My vehicle went from limping to purring. Rob first did a full diagnostic, then had recommendations for best performance, safety and also good to haves but not necessarily critical items as well. He presented a variety of options for service. His in depth knowledge of BMW was apparent. I feel like he treated me as if it were his own vehicle. Knowing I was going out of town he worked late into the night before to get me back on the road the next day. He also explained everything in a way a non- mechanic could understand, he also pointed out deficiencies from previous repairs. He was very responsive through email, kept me in the loop for the entire process. I should say this was my first experience with Almost New Auto, but it will not be the last. In fact when I picked up my car, I dropped off another vehicle for evaluation and service. Rob treated me with courtesy, respect, answered a billion questions, I felt like a member of the family. I will be taking ALL of my vehicles for maintenance and service to Rob, no doubt in my mind his is one of the best shops I've ever dealt with.

    Rob does truly great work. He is highly professional, and most importantly, not only can he do the work that needs to be done, he is willing to explain everything that he does so that you fully appreciate the needs of your vehicle. For those in Greenville with BMWs, he is a true blessing. I would absolutely recommend him and Almost New Auto to anyone with a BMW that needs some attention. My recently purchased "as is" 2015 528i now drives like a new car because of him!

    I moved to N.C. about 4-1/2 years ago and brought my previously dealer serviced only 7 series with me. After a unpleasant experience with the local dealer, I was lucky enough to find Rob and Almost New Auto.

    Since then, Rob is my "go to" guy for all things BMW. He has been great to work with and very understanding to the fact that I have just one car.

    On more than one occasion, the car required a tow and Almost New even handled that. A better repair service will not be found! His work is great and prices very fair. You will always get fair and honest treatment form Almost New and Mr. Robert Palmiter.

    I had an issue with my car idling very rough and loss of acceleration power. Robert at Almost New Auto diagnosed and offered me a couple options that helped me get up and running cost effectively. What made my experience special is that Rob works on cars by appointment only and since I was transiting through the area he squeezed me in during lunch to diagnose and order parts, then had me return again during the next day to make the repair. This helped lessen the inconvenience of being without a vehicle while waiting for all the parts to come in.

    He is very knowledgeable and willing to discuss his expertise to benefit the consumer. I give my highest recommendation!

    I highly recommend Rob and Almost New Auto. He is conscientious about the quality of his work and charges a fair rate. He was recommended to me by a customer of his and I had him repair a coolant leak on my 2003 Z4. I will take my Z4 back to him for service and any repairs. He gets five out of five stars.
