  • First time to the German Auto Center and I was very impressed with the amount of time Les (the owner) took to explain what was needed on my car and what could wait. He also kept us updated on the progress the shop was making and met his deadline for time and expense, which never happens at a dealer on either one. I have found my new repair shop, and strongly recommend it to others.

  • My wife and I recently had our 2009 BMW in to German Auto Center for servicing. This was only our second service visit to GAC, but both times now we have truly appreciated the expertise and courtesy that this staff offers. I will continue to entrust our BMW to these folks when the need for service or repairs arises. As such, I would recommend them to anyone who may be in search of a knowledgeable and dependable shop if you care about your car. Thanks to Len and staff. Keep up the good work.

  • I brought my car for an engine oil level light and it was checked promptly, free of charge, with an estimate to fix the problem. I was advised that the existing condition will not cause any harm to the engine. The sensor can be replaced on the next oil change.

  • I recently had the best service from GAC. I had taken my car to the dealership to repair an oil leak. I was told my alternator needed to be replaced along with the leak repairs. I found the service to be rude and the quote extremely expensive. I told them not to touch the car I wanted a second opinion. My car didn't make it a mile down the street. I called GAC this time. They sent a tow truck immediately. Once the car arrive Len called me and was very patient in explaining what needed to be done. 24 hours I was back in my car and I paid 1/3 of the price. The personal attention Len provided a great customer experience. They now have a loyal customer for all of my BMW service. Great job, GAC!
