Comment: I have used AutoLab for several years for both routine oil changes and complex repairs on my 2 older vehicles. I have always found the customer service outstanding. The necessary repairs and costs are clearly explained upfront. And they never pressure into doing a repair. For all the maintenance Ive had on my vehicles, they have quickly and accurately (no guessing) found the issue, & completely the repair. 100% recommend.

Comment: Max, and the guys at Autolab were friendly, honest, and professional. I took in a used truck I was in the process of buying for an inspection and if it wasnt for these guys, me and my family wouldve been in serious trouble. They found issues that couldve cost over 2k with the back end and another electrical problem that couldve ran another 2k or more. Thx, Autolab.

Comment: I love coming to this place, they always treat us right, let us know whats going on. They dont charge tons nor rip you off. They even squeezed us in for an alignment when everything that day was going wrong. We always go to them first. Weve been going for three years now, they didnt even charge us to do a shake down to see what was going on once.Simply the best place weve ever been to and will always go back to.Thank you guys for being a stand up shop!

Comment: Took my truck in to get brake work done and Auto Lab of Howell did not disappoint! Max helped me with every aspect of the repairs from the beginning diagnosis to the final paying of my bill. He was very professional, extremely helpful and did an amazing job of walking me through other repairs that I didn’t know my truck needed (hopefully covered by warranty but if not, they will be doing the additional work). Found my forever shop! Also, Andy and Travis, you guys are STILL doing amazing things for those of us that don’t know so much about our cars and I thank you for that! Great crew of guys!

Comment: This place is great! I called ahead of time to ask some questions about the noises my car was making, and they stayed on the phone with me and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. When I was in the shop, they showed me my air filter instead of just telling me it needed to be replaced. They were friendly, kind, and didnt try to sell me anything that I didnt need. They do good work here, and the prices are actually really nice, too.

Comment: Nothing but a great experience from the start. Called to price out a few issues because I felt like I was being charged a lot somewhere else. Not knowing much about cars, AT ALL- I called and spoke with Max. He was incredibly friendly and patient with me and happily quoted me for the same work over the phone. It was a significant savings (he didnt know what I had been quoted elsewhere). He was actually so kind, that I didnt even feel like calling elsewhere for further pricing.I asked if I could bring the car in immediately, as it was at another shop getting something else done and wasnt currently very reliable to be driving (had bad brakes, for starters). Despite not having an appointment available for a week, he said bringing it straight there and leaving it was zero trouble. Win. He promised if they could squeeze it in that they would. No problem.The best part- car was fixed and ready to go THREE DAYS later. Four days BEFORE my scheduled appointment. I was thrilled! I paid over the phone and when they gave me the rundown of what they had inspected and done, they didnt attempt to up-sell me anything I didnt need. Simply brought to my attention some things I already knew needed fixing in the near future. Ill be back in later for those! :)These guys came highly recommended personally by locals in a fb group (why I called them to begin with)- and Ill be offering the same recommendation to others! THANK YOU!

I was grateful for there honesty the professional but welcoming atmosphere was nice. They did a great job. I will be returning for more work soon thanks to them showing me some other issues that needed to be addressed ....... it was nice not feeling like I was being duped by a money hungry company that didnt care about my safety and the well being of my car

Everyone there was amazing and they were able to get my car fixed fast which was great since I had two little ones with me.

Comment: So I took my car here because one of my rear wheels was squeaking on 1 of the joints. My coworker recommended them so I thought id give then a try. I have to say they were very friendly on the phone and were able to get me in right away. Honestly I felt kind of salty after the appointment because I paid a $100 for them to grease a joint for me and I had one request which was to look under the car when it was lifted up so I can see where the squeaking was coming from (so I could fix it myself in the future) however They didnt let me look under it and I wrote a long letter the next day explaining my frustration and never heard back from them. That left a bad taste in my mouth but.... that being said its been 3 months now And the problem hasnt returned which means they did a really good job of greasing the joint I still wish they would have showed me where it was so that when it does start squeaking again I can fix it myself without paying another $100 to grease a joint but regardless they did fix the problem so I cannot complain I would have given them 5 stars had they let me look up under the car to see what the issue actually was. Thanks for fixing the problem though!

The crew and managing staff always make sure my wife and I are leaving in a safe vehicle. We always support local businesses and enjoy having quality shops like this one to take care of use even in emergencies. Everything from our transmission to my Diesil truck to putting a suspension lift and wheels and tires on our new jeep. No problems and no complaining, they just got the job done within our budget.

Comment: I needed brakes and went to the dealership. When they told me the cost, I was floored. I asked on Facebook if that was normal. A friend suggested I talk to Mike at Auto-Lab. I called, and he gave me a MUCH more reasonable price. When I went in, they even showed me my brakes, which the dealership does not do. I will be using this company for future auto needs.

Comment: Took car in for what I thought would be a vacuum leak test, but turned out to be something else entirely. Their master mechanic Herb was honest and straightforward when taking me into the bay and physically pointing out the problems to me, and providing an explanation. I was able to make use of their free shuttle service to take me home rather than inconveniencing anyone to come and pick me up. I will be picking my car up when they finish working on it, and will give additional feedback at that point.11/9: Vehicle was done same day. Really liked the 10% off for leaving a review. The things that they replaced did not fix the problem, will need to take the car to get looked at again.

Comment: I purchased a Groupon from Auto-lab for my Daughter who lives in Howell to help her in the maintenance of her vehicles. I have over 40 years of experience in Automotive repair and I was very impressed with how they took care of my daughters vehicles. I told my daughter that these are honest hard working people that have won my trust. I do recommend taking your vehicle to the Howell Auto-Lab.
