  • They were incredibly professional from start to finish! Saved me hundreds of dollars in unnecessary work that the dealer had recommended. The shop is clean and everyone I spoke with was polite, courteous and professional. As long as I'm living in this area, I will never take my car anywhere else. It is a truly rare gift to have found an auto repair shop that I believe I can completely trust.

  • I called for a question on getting a car inspected in a case where the registration had expired. The person who answered the phone was friendly and spent 10 minutes giving me the answers on what I should do and how to get the registration quickly. He showed me that they are really committed to customer service and we will become a customer. I am very impressed.

  • A few weeks I had taken my car to a tire place for an oil change and tire rotation. They (the other place) told me I needed an inspection and that my car would not pass unless I had my brakes done. They estimated over $300. Based on the reviews here, I took my car to Elite to have the brakes done( They estimated $265). They could have done them and I'd have been the wiser, but they called me and asked who had told me I needed brakes. They said mine were fine. They tightened a couple of things and took the car for inspection. The whole thing cost $59 (including the inspection) They even drove me home and picked me up. I'll surely use these guys again (and NOT the tire place).

    I brought my BMW to Elite Auto in Warwick, R.I. to repair an oil leak, and to replace the power steering pump. The "courtesy vehicle " that picked me up was an old hybrid that had the battery replaced and wreaked of a toxic chemical odor that made me nauseous for the short time I was in the car.

    The repair cost was high, and there was no discernable explanation for the cost other than the bottom line number. The manager called someone else and was apparently wiling to give my car away for $900. The person he called told him it wasn't his car, but he insisted it was.

    The whole repair job seemed to be rushed. When I picked up my car it wouldn't start.

    I was told the bushings on the control arms needed replacement, yet he wouldn't replace the bushings without replacing both control arms for an additional $2,300.00. The oil had been replaced 100 miles earlier, yet he tried to sell me a complete oil change. I also own a 2014 BMW 550i M sport, and I will never take either of my BMW ' s to Elite Auto again.

    Elite Auto Repair has been servicing my wife's Lexus and my BMW for nearly 9 years. Not the same ones. The entire team there is the finest team of service people I have ever encountered. From just stepping the door to dropping by unannounced on a weekend with a minor problem, they are always ready willing and more than capable to assist.

    Going anywhere else for service would not be a good idea!

    We try to stay has competitive as possible. not sure what job we quoted you on.. but if we were significantly higher something is missing. Sorry for your disappointment in us. the dealers have become very competitive and are aggressive more then ever. they have a matrix chart that helps them stay competitive with people like us. sometimes it takes several trips to the dealer to realize where the savings comes in servicing your car with us. there is one thing people cant measure unfortunately and that's honesty. we do our best out there and we would never sell you anything your car doesn't need, we have friendly employees, quality work, and honesty. I hope someday you will give us another chance to earn your business
