Comment: I am more than pleased with the service that was provided. Madison specifically, she was phenomenal and helped me with finding an elusive transmission for my GTI. They are extremely friendly and helpful, and also reasonably priced. I would highly suggest bringing your car there.

Comment: Got me in quickly after my 2011 Nissan Juke died suddenly. They did a very thorough inspection and found problems in addition to the original issue. Dave did an exemplary job of explaining the repairs to be done, and Eli did awesome work. All in all, the price was fair for the extensive work that was done. Great job team!John Clark

Comment: Community Auto has always done a great job of servicing and repairing our vehicles. Over 15 years or so they have worked on numerous European vehicles we’ve had and it’s always been taken care of the first time. I’ve also had them perform pre-purchase inspections on our current vehicles. CAR gave us peace of mind with the purchases, and both have been very reliable for us. I trust them to have the knowledge, skills and tools to handle any job.

Comment: Community Automotive is a vital alternative to the dealerships. CA has excellent service knowledge of the best auto brands and products and a clear desire to serve customers first. Really appreciate and recommend them to anyone needing auto service.Community replaced front brakes last year. Six months later noticed a brake noise, brought it in for inspection. Turns out the brake pads, while premium, were defective. Community replaced the pads right away and at no charge. Integrity!!!

Comment: We recently returned to the area after a 4 year relocation in TX came to an end. Within a few weeks we needed service for our vehicle, back to Community. It was comforting to know what to expect and receive it. While some of the personnel has changed, the integrity honesty and good communication remains constant.

Comment: Had a misunderstanding here a bit ago but their team did an amazing job at reaching out and making sure we got things figured out. Great care and service here by people who seem to genuinely care about the community they help and support. Big thank you to the mechanics and Madison for following up with me and ensuring a thorough inspection of my car and providing great details of the issues. They went above and beyond my expectations. This will undoubtedly be the new regular place I take my vehicle to.

Comment: I made the right choice!I moved back to the Grand Rapids area back in September 2019. Shortly after moving here I bought a new (to me) car. Whenever I get to a new area I look for three specific buisness to become a regular at. A barber, a coffee shop and a mechanic. I did all my research online mainly via reviews and landed on Community Automotive. The first expirience I had was when I brought my car in for an inspection. I did not get one before I bought the car. (Shame on me.) They completed the inspection rather quickly and gave me list of suggestions but did not try to pressure me into getting any expensive work done right away. I ended up coming back a couple months later to go ahead and get that suggested work done. I did everything but the brakes they suggested. Now that leads me to my one and only gripe. I did not get the brakes done because they wanted over $500 just for the front brakes and that seemed high to me. But they completed everything else for me in a nice timely manner. And when I had a small issue relating to the maintenance performed I came back and the adjusted the issue quickly and for free! Kevin specifically is the one who I had the most contact with and he was very helpful.This place has a few horror story reviews, but I learned that in most cases those are retaliation for something the customer probably messed up or misunderstood. And it seems Community Automotive apologized and fessed up to any mistakes they KNOW they made. So dont let those scary 1 star reviews keep you away.All in all, I will probably be returning to this shop as long as the quality of service stays the same!Thanks guys!2023 Update:I recently purchased a new to me 2001 E320 Mercedes-Benz. I was experiencing an odd electrical problem with the car, so I brought it in for diagnosis. I had an idea of what was causing the issue but wanted an expert to look at it. The diagnosis I was provided with made no sense with the symptoms I was advising. I feel as though this was a fault of communication between the service advisor and the actual mechanic. I asked to speak with the mechanic and was just told he was too busy. I ended up paying over $400 for an oil change and a diagnosis that was completely unhelpful and incorrect as I found the problem. I was almost charged another almost $400 for something that would have not solved my problem.I went home and fixed the problem myself for $200. I am disappointed because I had such good experiences 2 years ago with my Subaru. I am not sure if I will return or not.

Comment: I went in to have the door wiring troubleshot and some wheel vibration fixed. The vibration is almost gone but what I spent money on was the door and they replaced only the motor , the motor as i explainedwas never the issue its the new module i installed. Oh yeah and I mentioned my drivers door didnt lock and they left it in an unlocked lot with my door fully unlocked as I mentioned before. It was driven maybe ten miles is all and I still have vibration at anything considered acceleration . They did great with my grandmothers saab 9-5 04 but not my 9-3 06 . Would be nice to be heard when I say things like i know whats wrong with it heres all my money. Dont figure it out fix it.

Comment: I was so happy with my service. I actually suggested that I needed certain service, and they looked at it and informed me that the problem was different than I thought, and that the cost of the repair was about 1/3 of what I thought it would be. Not only was this the case, but the work was done early, they stayed in constant contact via text and email and everything happened without incident or surprise. This was my first experience with CAR, but it will not be my last.

Comment: Community automotive really took care of. Unfortunately we received a bad set of rotors that caused a pulsation in my front brakes. When I brought it up to them they quickly remedy the problem. They got my car back into the shop as quickly as possible and replace the rotors at no charge. No one is perfect but I was very impressed with how they remedied the problem. Their customer service is phenomenal.

Comment: My son had a 2012 Passat that had been sitting in his parking lot for over 2 years. We needed a car for my wife. We live in the Upper Peninsula & the car was in Grand Rapids. We contacted CAR & they were wonderful to work with. Madison was our point person & she updated us frequently as we wanted the car to be gone over with any repairs to make it operable & safe. They did a thorough job on getting it running. I would recommend them even though I was never physically on site.

Comment: Purchased a classic car and asked Dave Conley to have the vehicle inspected before we drove the vehcile. There was an open-checkbook to make sure that the vehicle was in as good as shape as can be expected in a classic car. The total cost to fix-it-up was much less than I expected. Thank you for the honest and timely experience.Not to mention, I had the vehicle shipped to the dealership from down-south and the transporter was not going to show up until an hour after closing. I was out of town and Dave offered to stay and make sure that the car was stored inside for the weekend.Wonderful expericen.

Comment: After a recent encounter with a ditch as a result of white-out/icy conditions this spring, Community Automotive took care of the resulting damage to my 2006 Pontiac Vibe including under-chassis repairs and replacing the front end bushings which had been knocking for the last couple of years. The car now drives better than it has in several years. Totally satisfied with the work. They are a great bunch of people at Community Automotive and a treasured commodity to keep.

My car has spent a total of over 2.5 months in their shop for a big project - I’ve asked countless questions, sent many text messages, called too many times to count - and they respond every time, and are happy to chat.It’s been great working with them to build my dream. Todd goes above and beyond to make sure things are done right.

Comment: I have two cars that I have been taking to Community Auto for years. My BMW and Range Rover have enough years and miles on them to be approaching the classic stage. Most recently, I needed a complete engine refurbishing/exchange on the Rover. After contracting for the new engine with a reputable establishment on the east coast, the staff at CAR did the exchange. When the engine failed to perform to the warranty, CAR came to the rescue. Todd made this a personal mission and was consistent and assertive with the establishment who rebuilt the engine, (which originally tried to bow out with a technicality). We got another engine and the staff at CAR did the labor to once again exchange no additional cost.I am thoroughly pleased with the honesty and professional service over the years. Problems are always discussed and any confusion is resolved in a manner that shows integrity. I am glad that I found CAR. I live in Lansing and work in Grand Rapids.The professionalism at CAR is worth the drive.

Comment: I have a 1967 Mustang convertible that Ive had issues with road vibration for about five years now. Ive been to three other shops and not one was able to help. I had heard about Community Automotive and noticed the do work on a lot of classic cars so I decided to stop in one day. They preformed a vibration test and quickly determined what was needed. Kevin, the service manager kept me notified as work was taking place and parts we being located. . A few days before I was to pick up the car, they noticed another issue that needed to be repaired. Kevin told me that theyd have the car done the following Monday, when he found out I had wanted to attend a car show on Saturday, he made an effort to locate the parts needed and to get the car finished by Friday afternoon. When I went to pick it up, Kevin was in the lot washing may car so it was ready for the show Saturday. Im a customer for life. Very professional and honest service. I would highly recommend Community Automotive.

He is great at setting expectations and minimizing the surprises that sometimes come when vehicle repairs are involved. My repairs are always done in a timely manor and I have not had any issues with any prior work that was done on my vehicle at Community Automotive. Save some time.

Comment: Lauren and the team are awesome. Dropped my car off at night, and within hours of the next day Lauren called me to go over everything. My car was done in a timely manner, and she kept me updated through call, text and email. My car runs and drives so good; Youd think it is new- I will be using community automotive repair and working with Lauren in the future.

Comment: The team at Community Automotive does a great job communicating and provides high quality work. It is very important to me to have a trusted partner taking care of our family vehicles. Dave explains what needs to be done and how much it will cost. He is an awesome advisor. I highly recommend this group to take care of all of your automotive maintenance and repairs.

Comment: I had our 2012 Subaru Forester into a different automotive repair shop three times within 18 months for a/c issues, and the problem was not resolved. Because of Community Automotive’s reputation, we took our car to their shop for diagnostics and, ultimately, repair. The shop was honest in their assessment of what they thought the problem was and gave me a cost estimate along with an estimate of the time it would take to complete the repair. I entrusted my Forester to their care, and 10 days following their work, the a/c is still working. The cost estimate and the length of time to complete the repair were both accurate. We are very satisfied.

Comment: I bought a Land Rover and immediately searched for a mechanic that knows these trucks. I have known the owners for years but never needed their level of expertise with my older domestic vehicles.I am so glad my search brought me to Community. The level of care and expertise is unmatched. Dave has been available to talk things through and process best next steps as I get my vehicle concerns fixed and create a plan for ongoing maintenance. Land Rovers can be a love/hate relationship, but having a good and trusted shop to work with has made all the difference in protecting my investment.

Comment: I’m happy with the work and the car was returned in a clean condition. My only reservation comment is that it would have been nice if I had been told when I made the appointment that the repairs would likely require the car be left overnight. Overall I’m very pleased with how I was treated and I’ll surely be back in the future. I also appreciate the heads up about repairs that should be addressed in the future.

Comment: I have been having a hard time finding a reliable mechanic that doesn’t give me a laundry list of things “wrong” with my vehicle just to take my money. Kyle helped me out and he was great, so helpful and very very nice. A different place told me I had 5 things wrong with my car, that would’ve cost me an additional $700 to fix, the folks at Community Auto looked into those 5 things and said everything is fine. They got my car repaired and it was ready for me to pick up that same day. And they are VERY reasonably priced comparing to other places. So glad I found somewhere that I can trust!

Comment: I had ongoing issues with slow leaks in three tires. I didnt know anything about tire bead leak as a potential source of the problem, however on my first call to Community Auto, it was mentioned as a possibility. Scheduling was within an appropriate amount of time, easy, and with a friendly and knowledgeable staff person. I was pleasantly surprised when I picked up my car that not only was the leak problem fixed at a great rate, but when my vehicle was presented by someone who drove it to meet me at the front of the shop, it had been washed and dried on the exterior, and was warm. Maybe a small details, but it was well-appreciated. I had previously had my vehicles serviced at the dealer for decades, but this shop has changed my mind about where to go for future service needs. I will be returning and highly recommend using them.

Comment: Lets talk about why Community is my favorite garage in Grand Rapids. If you own automotive oddballs, generally youre stuck going to your local dealership. Every experience Ive had at my dealership has been a poor one; I know how to wrench on my cars and Ill check over the work I hire out. At Community, every experience has been great. These guys are knowledgeable, fairly priced, and they do quality work. If you have an Italian car dont hesitate to take it here. Highly recommended.

Comment: I’ve only ever driven imports, so my experience with mechanics in general was pretty awful my entire life until I moved to Grand Rapids and starting taking my car to Community. Not only are they helpful , they’re extremely informative and knowledgeable professionals; all of them . I take my cars there because no matter what manufacturer you drive, you’re in good hands. No matter who picks up the phone, you know that person knows what they’re talking about, and that you’re getting a good value on your repairs and preventative maintenance . If you’re reading reviews on mechanics then you probably care about the quality of service and value you’re getting so that you can keep driving your used car; so do yourself a favor and stop reading reviews, you found a fantastic shop, call them .

These guys are the real deal… Not only are the mechanics quick, both Todd and Kyle look out for you and make sure communication is solid throughout the whole process. Just today I asked Todd a question about doing repairs on a high mileage car, he immediately stopped what he was doing and took 5 minutes to talk. They’re honest, and their work is good. Never had a post-repair issue. I’ll continue to use Community Auto as long as I’m in the Grand Rapids area.

Comment: I have used Community Auto for several years. They are simply the best around. My most recent issue was with a CEL and loss of power. I braced myself to be without a vehicle for a week. That was not the case. Hours later my car was diagnosed, and the problem resolved. When I came in to pick it up the problem was explained in plain English just like every other time I have visited. Every time I have come in for an issue it is fixed the first time. I refer them to everyone I know. They simply are the best all around shop. I could not thank them more.

Comment: The service I experienced for my 2005 Volvo XC90 at Community Automotive Repair was excellent. Todd and Kevin were professional and explained the parts and work required for my vehicle in clear detail. The office and waiting room were clean and welcoming. I give them 5 stars due to the fact that my Volvo required numerous parts and diagnosis yet they were able to finish sooner than I expected. I will definitely be back for routine maintenance and everything else. Thanks Community Automotive! Nice work!

So I called them and they worked me in within the week. They did a great job. They also gave the car a total once over and made suggestions on what needed attention right away and what could wait. Car is running great now and we found our New mechanic to service our Audi.Would suggest them to everyone.

Comment: When it came time to get a new oil pan put on my Volvo wagon due to a previous error from someone elses work, Community Auto really came through. Out of all the shops I called, they gave me the clearest quote, didnt require me to come in and pay for a diagnosis, and laid out all the work they planned to do well ahead of time. When I brought the car in for service, they were friendly and helpful, and the work was done within the day even though I had expected it to potentially take longer. While it cost a bit more than I initially expected to pay, Im very happy with the work that was done, the prompt and friendly service, and I will be returning for future routine maintenance on my vehicle. They were also kind and understanding about a few things I decided to skip on this visit, and kept me apprised of other areas of the vehicle that will need attention in the future. Im very happy with my experience.

Comment: A few years ago we bought a 2003 SAAB 93 Cab that had never seen winter and was stored for 7 years. We are both SAAB nuts and I have owned many. The car had 65k on it and like all b205 and 207 engines are prone to clogged oil pickups. This having low miles I did not have the pan dropped and was going to have it done at 100k. BAD MOVE! at 80k I got a flickering oil light. I searched for a SAAB specialist shop to have the pan dropped and cleaned along with the PCV update. Got the car back and 70 miles later the dreaded oil light. Bearing damage had already occurred but until the engine was run for a time to get to quite hot it was within tolerance. Spoke with Kevin and Todd and bit the Bullitt, time for a new engine. Found a low mileage with a 5 year 5k warranty and had it installed.The car is like new, drives perfectly because of the attention to detail of Community Automotive.They are not the cheapest nor the fastest, they are the best. In the end that is all that matters.

Comment: Dave and crew were wonderful! As a woman, it is hard for me to get repairs done on my car without feeling like Im getting ripped off. I needed major exhaust work done on my Subaru but the dealer in town wanted waaaay too much for it. I took it to Dave at Community Automotive Repair and they got it done for less than HALF of what the dealership wanted. It took a little while to get the parts for my car because COVID had affected the companies manufacturing and shipping those parts, but Dave kept me informed on what was going on the whole time and treated me like I knew what was going on. Very much appreciated and highly recommended to anyone looking for good work for a fair price.P.S. The car runs great now. Its much quieter!

Comment: There is no other place like it in Michigan. For two years now the amount of professionalism, care, attention to detail and knowledge exhibited by the staff is unmatched. Dave, Todd, Andrew & Kevin have been AMAZING caring for my A4 and A8L. The kind words, patience, and overall perfect customer service exhibited every visit is unheard of. Not only have these gentlemen on multiple occasions corrected existing problems, made arrangements to meet my needs and did everything to satisfy me as a customer...they also have kept up the same energy and worth ethic from the first day I walked in the door. That is the most impressive part to me, these are genuine good people who get the job done and do it with a smile on their face. There is not even a question of if you should get your vehicle serviced here, but rather when. They have never missed a phone call, accidentally overcharged, broke something on my car, lost a key. NOTHING. They have been perfect. I can honestly say they have presented the best customer experience of my entire life. Not only can going to a mechanic come with nerves and skepticism about honesty, you also have to worry about the trained staff actually being well versed and reliable. These guys get it right time after time. They stand alone in Michigan in top service and customer service. The only reason to ever choose a dealership over these guys is if youre under CPO or new car warranty, and even then you still might want to stop in to Community to be treated like family. The prices are fair and affordable, the service is excellent and the quality is 1/1. Keep up the great work Community, these guys have earned by business for a lifetime!

Comment: I had a great experience with Dave when I brought my 2002 BMW X5 here. My headlight went out but the car shop I usually take it to didn’t have an opening for weeks. Two of the windows has also fallen at the same time. I called around different car shops in Grand Rapids before going to Community Auto and am so glad I did! Where other car shops wanted to charge over $100 each just for inspection of the fallen windows, Dave fixed it completely free of charge. And where two other car shops quoted $320 for fixing the broken headlight, I paid half this at Community Auto. I’ll be coming back!

Comment: I bought a very rare Audi in Grand Rapids, and within hours of buying it, it left me stranded on the highway jsut outside of town. A friend recommended these guys so we had it towed there. The car is imported so parts were hard to get, but they worked with me to find it overseas. Their communication was consistent and I always knew what was going on even though I was home in MA. They quickly diagnosed the issue to the electric fuel pump and didnt do anything unnecessary. They fit me in the schedule and even were patient for me to organize getting the car shipped. I really cant say enough about how positive this experience was. Thanks Dave!

Comment: Dave at Community Auto has taken care of my car for....10 years or more. And the company has repaired other cars I have owned before my Matrix. In my experience, they make appointments that work for me, give me reasonable estimated timelines for the needed repairs, their own taxi service home when I have to leave it for the day, a loaner car at a low price when I need to leave it longer. The staff calls me with the diagnosis of whats wrong with the car, and the cost of repairs, and I surprises at the end. Im not sure, but I suspect they are not the absolute cheapest repair shop around here....but the service can be relied upon. Its worth it.

Comment: What a great place! I called to say that I needed a transmission flush, and immediately the gentleman on the other end wanted to make sure it was a legitimate need and not somebody taking advantage of me. He said first we will check to see if it’s needed, then IF it’s needed the price will be xxx to xxx. It ended up being $14 less than the lowest number he gave me. When has that ever happened at a mechanic? I will definitely be a repeat customer.

Comment: Took my wifes Subaru there for service on headlights and the service was fast, polite, and well done. Pleased with the service and will be bringing the car back for all maintenance. They provided a list of things I should do with the vehicle and will 100% be doing it all with them. Great job team, excellent service!

Comment: I have been a long time customer of Community Automotuve. I have always been treated with the utmost in professionalism. They listen to you, provide feedback, but most importantly fix your car or truck right the first time. Only once did I have to return any of my vehicles, and that was due to a manufacturing defect in a part they used. The stood behind their work 100%.Is Community Auto the cheapest place to have fix your vehicle - no. But you get what you pay for and that is what counts to me.

Comment: Todd and crew have addressed my Audi needs on multiple occasions now and I will confidently recommend them to anyone I know in need of repairs or modifications. They were able to fit me into their schedule on very short notice and kept me in the loop as the work progressed. I hope I don’t need to go back for repairs but if I do need to, I’ll go confidently.

Comment: So far Dave and the team at Community Auto have treated me well. They are very thorough in the complimentary inspection during a visit. Also, the knowledge they bring to a multitude of different brands is a plus. The Volvo specialist they have in house helped me save at least a thousand dollars because of a different solution he had for a issue I was dealing with. I will continue my support to this business as long as I feel like I am fairly treated.

Comment: In late August, I needed to get some work done on my car. Auto shops have always made me feel uneasy, as I know next to nothing about cars, and consequently would have little idea if I was being ripped off. Thankfully, a friend recommended Community Auto, and I couldnt be happier with his recommendation. The people at Community Auto have a knack for clearly communicating whats going on with a car, and in the month and a half that Ive now been dealing with them, Ive never once felt misled. As long as I live in Grand Rapids, Ill be bringing my cars to Community Auto and recommending them to anyone in search of an honest and competent auto shop.

Comment: Worked with Todd to get an APR tune in a vehicle i had just purchased. After spending an hour patiently waiting Todd smiles and tells me he had great news. He proceeded to tell me that the car already had a tune from previous buyer and he updated all of my files just in case. He could have easily took my $1,600 and pretended that he simply tuned it. Beyond great work finding honest people makes for such a great experience. Loved all points of contact with community and will never hesitate to use them again.

Comment: Community Automotive was recommended to us by a friend, and we are so happy they did! Dave and his team have integrity and truly want to help you out--even if youre not going to do business with them.We took our car for a check-up for something that tends to go wrong with it, and Dave let us know that thing was fine, but our timing chain was on the verge of going bad. We had recently bought the car and had a limited warranty from the dealership, so we let him know that we were going to see if theyd cover part of the cost to fix it. Even though Dave didnt know if we were going to do business with them, he told us what to ask about, what to listen for them to say, and exactly what needed to be fixed. He even offered to call himself and talk to the shop that would work on it. Turns out, it wasnt covered under warranty and we happily took it to Dave to be fixed. We couldnt be happier with the outstanding service we received!

Comment: This is the first time I’ve had outstanding service when dealing with car issues. These guys have done a phenomenal job at staying in touch, taking pictures of fixed parts, keeping car clean, and fixing things in a timely manner. If I needed something it seemed like these guys (Dave specifically) would find a way to help. Will always bring my cars to them as long as I live in Michigan. Great people and outstanding work/communication.

Comment: I took my Audi in last week and told the guys at community automotive what issues needed to be fixed. They speak in a way that someone who doesnt understand the inner workings of cars would understand fairly clearly. I knew what my issues were so they went ahead and fixed those issues and did a very fairly priced check for other issues. They texted me with updates every time something came up in a very timely manor. But the cherry on top was a 400$ heater core backflush that they openly say is not a 100% guarantee on success which saved me 400$. These guys are honest, courteous, and the only major shop that I have gotten a genuine sense of care for the customer from. Go here.

Comment: Ive had my Volvo since 2005, however, its a 1998. Community Auto Repair has been taking care of my car since Ive had it. She still runs like she did the first day I got her. I am always pleased with the work they do and customer service I receive from Dave is top quality. Hes easy to talk with about my vehicle and he always looks for the best for my vehicle but whats economically affordable for me. I appreciate everyone at Community Auto from Dick, to Dave to the mechanics and the drivers. Although I must say, Beth is my favorite. I know my car is in good hands with Community Auto Repair.

Superb quality of service and customer care, could not recommend more! Thank you Dave, and the whole team there at Community Automotive!!!

Comment: First of all, Im not sure why this review is listed under my wifes name. That being said, Im quite satisfied with the service at Community Auto Repair. I brought the car in earlier than my appointment date due to an error on my part and they were able to keep the car at the shop until it could be worked on. Todd was very thorough in describing the issues with my Volkswagen Harlequin and Dick picked up the baton when Todd was on vacation. There was a glitch in communication at the end and the car was there longer than expected but since it is not my daily transportation car, that wasnt a serious issue. I was concerned that the car would be damaged and/or quite dirty after sitting at the shop for over a week, but was pleasantly surprised to find that it was in the same condition it was in when I delivered it and had been washed before I picked it up. The transmission repairs were completed professionally and the car shifts better than it ever has since Ive owned it. The cost was within estimates. Ive been a collector for 50 years and know cars pretty well. I have a dozen cars, and plan to let Community Auto Repair handle many of my automotive repair needs. Thanks. Jeff Wells

Comment: They were able to get me in quickly, assess every part of the problem I had and do it at a fraction of the price of Fox Subaru! (fox wanted 600$+, community automotive did it for just over $200) just to change some gaskets! Not only that, they gave me a ride to and from work when a rental wasnt available. Absolutely outstanding service and support. Theyve gained a long time customer.

Comment: These guys were good overall. I went in because of a concern with my suspension. They determined that replacing the bushings would fix the noise coming from the car and it did just that. The shop was clearly very busy when I took it in and yet they wrapped it up in only a couple of days.The service was great, the only hiccup occurred with the payment, which was significantly larger than I expected. There seemed to have been some confusion over the phone, when I was quoted for service. However, they ultimately resolved this, giving me a really generous discount. In the end, it was a good experience.

Comment: This place is great. My girlfriend and I have used them for some time (well technically she longer than me) and have had nothing but the best experiences time after time. We both have European cars and they can do anything the dealerships can and usually cheaper and more upfront about what is needed versus what will be needed down the line. Preventative maintenance is great but too often with dealerships its overdone to the extreme. Talk to these guys (Dave in particular) if you want great service, great prices, and a trusted/knowledgable opinion.

Dave gives good advice and work is done in a timely manner. Last time I was in to have them investigate an oil leak they replaced the plug at no charge.

Comment: Very well organized, professional and always available. Ive had issues at past garages trying to get a hold of someone who can tell me what is wrong with my car, but at Community Auto, Todd was always there when I called, which felt very comforting when I had questions or concerns. The quality in their work was unparalleled. I live in Buffalo, NY, and go to school in Grand Rapids, so when my car died three weeks before the end of the semester, I was very freaked out. They did a full inspection of every aspect of the car, the most thorough inspection Ive ever had, and they revealed a couple concerns with the car that I had not even known about, as well as confidently finding the current problem. I will confidently be taking my car back to this shop when I am in the area!

Comment: When I went in to get my ball joints replaced, I made an appointment for 7am, they called me at 5pm and told me my vehicle was done. I went down there and there was a mix up with the paperwork; nobody worked on my vehicle at all that day despite my appointment. However, they made the right decisions and handled the issue quite well. The following day, they started on it first thing in the morning and were finished at about lunchtime. Not only did they fix my balljoints, but they also replaced my wipers, fixed a brake light, gave her a carwash, oiled up the door hinges, along with other miscellaneous upkeep. I really appreciated their hard work to make things right!

Comment: Community Automotive Repair is an excellent repair shop! My girlfriend and I each bring our vehicles there and the staff does great work at a fair price. I am a graduate student with limited funds and the folks there always do the job right the first time around. I have mainly interacted with Todd but the whole staff seems to be of high quality.My most recent service was a transmission fluid exchange with filter replacement, plus I had them inspect & adjust the serpentine belt in my 2004 Forester. I dropped it off for my 8 am appointment and they had it finished well before they closed at 5:30 on the same day. My Subaru now runs better and shifts cleaner than ever since I bought it secondhand this past September. I even made an appointment next week for a complete brake service and have full confidence in their abilities and advice.Overall they are a great local shop who take the time to understand your needs and budget. I would definitely recommend them!

Comment: I had a great experience with Todd. I selected Community Auto on a referral from a classic car dealership in Grand Rapids. Todd responded promptly to my inquiry regarding a pre-purchase inspection on an air-cooled 911. The inspection they performed was thorough and priced fairly. The reason for the 5-star review comes from the fact that Todd went above and beyond in terms of lending his knowledge and professional opinion regarding the condition of the vehicle and options to best address the issues. Even after my inspection was completed, Todd was willing to offer me additional advice. If I lived in Grand Rapids, I wouldnt hesitate to use them again.

Before they did the work, I received a call telling me exactly what was needed and how much it would cost. They made the repairs and made suggestions for future maintenance. I appreciate the tech notes on the invoice. I have an older, imported vehicle with a lot of miles, and am glad to find a trustworthy community auto repair shop.

The only bad things I could say is that they have a very small parking lot which makes it hard to park and sometimes they can be a bit pricey. But overall, theyre worth it.

Comment: I just moved back into the area and needed my vehicle evaluated. I remember taking my cars to Community Auto years ago when I lived in GR. I always felt comfortable and confident with the service back in the day, so I thought Id give them a try and see if the exceptional customer service and honesty has held the test of time. To my pleasant surprise, the answer is a resounding YES! Every employee I made contact with was pleasant, efficient, and sincere. The work that was completed was good, solid, honest work (not always easy to find). I am confident driving my daughter and myself around in my 14 year old car because it gets serviced here. Well Done!

I feel like I can trust the work done and I am always consulted on what needs to happen - no pressure to do something if it can wait for a while safely. I appreciate that because I have a very limited budget.One again I want to thank Community. My son came into town after a 10+ hour drive with his family. They had some car trouble that needed immediate attention. Community squeezed them in and got the repair done in time for us to still go to the rental cottage!

Comment: I called Community Automotive Repair bright and early on a Wednesday morning, and gave a fumbly explanation of what was wrong. Dave told me to come in right away, as it sounded like my alternator was going bad. I got a call that afternoon that I needed my alternator replaced, and was quoted a price more reasonable than a few other shops I had called for comparisons. My car was fixed in less than 24 hours, and it got a comprehensive check up, too! I was incredibly grateful that they took my car right away, explained everything clearly without being condescending, and got it taken immediately. Thanks Dave and C.A.R!

Comment: I had the best experience here! My car had quite a few issues when I had to tow it there suddenly, and it drove better than ever when I got it back! It was so helpful that I was able to use one of their rentals while it was briefly in the shop (Hertz is over twice the price). They helped me with a lot of other details like rusted panels coming off also, and even washed it for me when it was done. Todd is great, he stayed in touch with me and helped me understand what problems were going on. Overall staff is very friendly and professional, would definitely recommend.

Comment: I had a wnoderful experience at Community Automotive. The staff was friendly, courteous and very helpful. I had taken my car to a local dealer in town to have some work done on a recall. The dealership called me after the work was done and said they had identified another $2k in repairs that were need on the car. I was skeptical and decided to call Community Automotive and ask about the repairs the dealer had identified. I was promptly told that they have seen this before and I should bring my car in get checked out. Dave and the team identified told me that 1 of the 3 items the dealer identified actually needed to be repaired. I take my vehicles to Community Automotive for the honest service they provide.

He kept me in the loop via phone, and after giving me a meticulous explanation of my cars issues, discussed options with me to get it back on the road. They were quick to start work on it, and even finished before they expected! The pricing was competitive as well. Will be taking my car back here in the future.

Comment: I discovered Community Automotive while attending college in downtown Grand Rapids. I drive an older Volkswagen, and after driving past their business everyday I realized they do a lot of work on foreign cars. The thing that I appreciated the most about the guys at Community Automotive was the respect that they gave me and overall their customer service. They have never tried to talk me into unnecessary repairs and have always charged me very reasonable prices. I would, and do, highly recommend Community Automotive to anyone looking for excellent automotive maintenance and repair. They are a team I can trust!

Comment: You get what you pay for. This shop is the only shop Ill take my car to in Grand Rapids. Its been that way since I moved here 6 years ago. I understand what other people say about paying more here, and Im just fine with the higher dollar amount because Im getting incredible quality, great warranties and like Muhammad said, Im getting trust. Dave and the guys as Community Auto have never tried to hike up prices with me. In fact, I find that theyre often open to a little friendly, reasonable compromise if you are on a tight budget. If all youre looking for is a quick fix for your problem, by all means, take your vehicle somewhere else because you might be able to save a couple bucks. But if you are investing in your vehicle, and you understand that quality is worth some extra money, this is your place. I think their longevity speaks for itself in that respect.

Comment: I want to thank Community Automotive for getting involved and giving back to the community. I had a chance to have a routine oil check on my car turn into a way for me to give back also.
