Comment: What a find! This shop gets top marks. Friendly, customer oriented, knowledgeable, and willing to converse with you about the potential issue your car is having. Came on a busy day and they still managed to get the work done BEFORE the promised day/time. Will definitely be recommending this place.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Comment: Honestly, best service at a garage I’ve had in any of the cities I’ve lived in across the country. Had to drive back to Florida, had brake issues. They got me in immediately, did a great job. I’ve have a beer w the gentleman working the front. Good dude

Comment: They gave me a free inspection of my suspension and told me the upper ball joints were causing the wobble. They wanted $900 to do the work so I spent $300 on tools and did them myself. Wobble still there so I took it back to them for an alignment and they said it was the lower bill joints and flat spots in the a business owner I find it difficult to do business with any automotive business.

Comment: To say I was treated like a friend is an understatement! They treated me like family! I went around for estimates and since I’m young everyone was trying to play me! I came here and the price they told me was 60% cheaper then everyone else I had originally went to! My car was done on time after the parts were ordered! They told me about a recall I had and told me to go to Cadillac and told me what to do! They took the time and I appreciate that! This place will definitely be the only place to work on my vehicles from now on! Thank you hass!!

Comment: OMG! Unbelievable service and quality work! It is rare to find a service where you are treated personally and professionally and at a reasonable price. As I was getting work done on my car, I watched each person that came in treated with respect, issues quickly reviewed and resolved. Also, with the repairs, one of the issues was treated and repaired instead of replacing the whole part, which was a definite cost saving, especially when you are working with a tight budget. I would definitely recommend Friends for your auto repairs!

Comment: I love this shop! They have never tried to talk me into getting any extra work done, prices are fair, and they generally have my car ready same day. Once I was sure I needed new brakes and dropped my car off. They called me later and said the brakes still had a lot of life left and didnt charge me anything. As someone without a lot of car knowledge myself I love having a place I can trust.

Comment: I chose Friends Auto to service my car based on their Google reviews. I must say that their service and prices are exceptional. The diagnoses and completion of my repairs were timely, and I wasnt at the shop all day. I appreciate Hasss courtesy and professionalism. He welcomed me to the family as a first-time customer, and that spoke volumes to me. I would certainly recommend their services.

Comment: Great service. Really helpful staff. Came in on 4/12 to have rear rotors and pads replaced. Great pricing, informative staff. I did not feel taken advantage of, as a woman with limited knowledge of cars/parts/pricing. Two months later the pads are still squeaking so I brought it back in this morning, they had me in and out after making sure nothing was technically wrong with them, cleaned the pads and rotors and said to come back if they continue to squeak. No charge. I noticed an immediate difference in the breaks leaving the shop. The cleaning they did for free fixed the issue. Thank you guys!

Comment: Are you tired of being at the mercy of a dirty auto shop, wondering how long they will take, how outrageous the price will be, rude men talking down to a female? Then THIS is the place to bring your vehicle! Hands down best auto shop around! HONEST service, fair price, kind as the day is long, and you even get a great smelling air freshener every time:} He has gotten me in the same day every time (a couple hours no less!). My mother now uses him too! One time I walked in because my engine guard had fallen down and was dragging. He walked out that minute, fixed it NO CHARGE. Not typically a review writer but I wanted to say THANK YOU!!

Comment: Brought my car in for an alignment and asked them to check out a few other issues while it was there. I ended up needing more safety repairs done than I thought. They were pleasant to work with and really quick on the repairs. For any repairs I couldnt do myself, Friends Auto would be my first choice shop in the area to bring it in to.

Comment: I went here as a referral from Discount Tire. It was late on a Saturday before a holiday 4pm. Something had come loose underneath my vehicle. Not only did Hass take me in and get it fixed in like 20 minutes, he charged me a price so reasonable and fair... like unbelieveably fair! I have found my new mechanic shop. Plus, as he was checking out two customers before me, Hass gave them both good news on their repairs and those customers were happy campers, too. Thanks again Friends Auto...I will be sure to spread the word!

From the great customer service over the phone to the how fast and easy the whole process was in person. Great staff, friendly faces, quick and great prices. There were no gimmick they got straight to the problem and got it all done within 2 hours tops. I can’t recommend them enough, they even offer warranty on the parts and service. Truly made this a wonderful experience, will definitely come back to switch my tires for winter.

Comment: The back end of my Dodge Nitro on the drivers and passenger side were grinding irritatingly so, after just having so many parts replaced, I was a little concerned that I would have to put more money into it. As I was out running errands I came across Friends Auto Service. Thinking I would now have to pay for brakes and rotors. I absolutely loved the honesty and humor of the people who work there. They took it for a test drive and it turned out to be something so minor that I was extremely grateful for their honesty and dedication to getting the job done quickly and efficiently, with no stress at all. I appreciate that respect and kindness you showed to me as a female customer. You are an outstanding establishment and I applaud your sincerity and honesty. Keep up the great work. You are a friend indeed!!!!

Comment: I would definitely recommend bringing your car here. Another business was trying to over charge me for a power steering leak and this place got my car in immediately, fixed it the same day, and charged me half of what the other business was trying to charge me. They even scraped off my car and brought it up to me when I got there. Great business!

Comment: I moved to the Garden city area about a month ago. I had always used the same place to get car repairs done, and that place is now almost an hour away. I decided to give Friends a try, and I was highly impressed. They called and kept me updated with what was wrong, and what the price would be. My car was done when they said it would be. They did an amazing job, and I will definitely be returning for all future issues with my car.

Comment: I have been going here for several years now, and this is hands down the best auto service shop Ive ever found! The other reviews dont lie - They have the most honest, fair prices and they work FAST! I called today to see if they even had room to take my car in, and not only did they have room, but they fixed my breaks, headlight and oil change within a matter of a few hours. Alex, the owner, was amazing and took great care of me! I recommend him and his entire staff to everyone and will continue to use them for all my car needs :D

Comment: August 7, 2020. Started a new auto repair relationship with Friends today thanks to ALEX! Broke up with my previous local GC auto repair shop relationship of over 20 years due to them allowing a 23yr old to work on my car just because we had the same year and model car. I was almost killed in that relationship. We are done.I dropped my car off to Alex at 8:00am gave him the short story version of the previous repairs done in May that would possibly be connected to todays repair. Let him know if he needed to keep my car overnight I was ok with that, the previous shop would keep it 3 days at a time. I was surprised when Alex called at 10:30am saying he found and fixed the problem. The alternator belt was flapping around because it was not bolted in and the bolt was gone. He fixed the belt and bolted it in correctly and it was ready for pick up. As I scrunched up my face I asked how much it was going to cost me (only because I am used to paying over and above $100-200 each time at the other place) he tells me $45 and then I screamed in his ear Are you serious!!?? (sorry Alex!)So yes, I give Friends the 5stars it allows me but really I have to say I was 100% satisfied with them and especially Alex! 10/10

Comment: This was my first experience with Friends Auto as I just recently moved to the Detroit metro area. Finding a reliable shop these days is a difficult thing to do because it involves a lot of trust in who you hire. I had my F150s idler arm serviced here and I have nothing but great things to say. Their pricing, quality of work, and professionalism are excellent. Needless to say, whenever I have any issues in the future Friends will be my go to. Ive had the run around with various mechanics in the area, and Friends works with honesty and integrity. An auto repair shop like Friends is not easy to find, Thank you!

Comment: I called around 4:45pm and the shop closes at 5, requesting an overdue oil change. Alex was very kind and told me to stop by. I brought my car in just for the oil change, although Alex inspected my entire vehicle, and went above and beyond to make sure I’m driving a safe care. You can tell he really cares about his customers and takes his job seriously. In the end, just charged me for the oil change!! Auto shops like this are very hard to find, and I’m so happy I found it. Will definitely be back, and highly recommend!!!

With in moments of me pressing send i had my questions answered and was given 2 quotes.....we brought in our vehicle and low and behold they fixed the issue that day and it was wayyy cheaper than what we were quoted! That never happens...the problem was fixed in a timely manner and the staff was super friendly! If any issues arise in the future we will go back 100%. We highly recommend Friends Auto!

Comment: I took my Hummer into Belle Tire 3 times because it would not start. First they said it was the battery, second time they said it was the cables, third time they did not know what was wrong. I took it to Friendly”s and they fixed it in 5 minutes. It was the connection that is attached to the sidewall had to be sanded because it had a poor connection.

Comment: Time to leave a review. My Engine light would not turn off, the dealership said they fixed it and a week later it came on again. I talked with Alex, he said bring it in. He did not have the machine to test it but said he can figure it out. He spent over an hour and told me it was the gas cap. Alex told me I can go buy a new cap and put it on myself and he would not charge me for the inspection?? I told him to order it so I could pay him something. It has been 2 months and the light has not come on! First you trust then you gain faith. I have faith in Friends Auto and will have all repairs done there. Thank you Alex!!

The wait was short and the lobby was nice. I feel like I got lucky because if I went anywhere else I would have spent a few hundred dollars. I 100% would go back for all my car repairs and oil changes. I will recommend this place to everyone I know! Thanks Alex!

Comment: I have been going to Friends Auto since 2009, and I can honestly say I have never been disappointed....EVER. PERIOD. I remember the day when I first came. I was driving a 1999 Chevy Malibu. They kept that car running for me like no one else could. Ned (retired) and John are the best there is. They have always given me low price quotes, and if the job still required a hefty price, they would do what they could to bring the price down a little. I have referred others to this place because thats how confident I am in their services. In addition, their customer service is superior! They have always treated me and my children with the utmost respect. It is a warm atmospheric type auto repair shop, and not too long ago, they set up a coffee and cold water station for their guests. I highly recommend Friends Auto for all of your auto needs.

Comment: Honestly this is the best place in town, I have had them help me numerous times. Friends Auto always gives me GREAT LOW prices. They explain things to me and always make sure I understand what Im paying for. I just had a rim replaced and Alex went above and beyond the call of a mechanic to get me safely back on the road. Alex took time out of his busy day to find me a used part that matched my van perfectly had had my van in the shop within a day and fixed in 30 minutes. The staff is knowledgeable, fair and friendly. This place always saves me; always willing to go above and beyond even if its not necessarily a service they typically provide. They also have the BEST referrals, Im telling you give them a visit.

Comment: My husband and I have had the pleasure of knowing Alex, the owner of Friends Auto, for about four years now. We first met when he was working as a mechanic near our home in St. Clair Shores. When he told us he had purchased a shop of his own and would be moving to Garden City we were pretty disappointed as its at least an hour drive from us and with our crazy work schedules we knew it might be hard to get our cars out to see him. After he left we made the mistake of trying a couple different shops in our area but no one could compare to Alex or the work he does. So we did what we should have from the moment he left and made the trip to Garden City.To anyone reading this review, Alex is as decent and honest as they come. In a world where most people are just out for themselves, I promise you he isnt. Cars are absolutely this mans passion and hes incredibly good at what he does. He will never try and talk you into fixing something that isnt necessary and you will never leave his shop feeling taken advantage of. My husband and I are both happy and relieved to have him looking after our vehicles again and as long as hes working on cars we will never make the mistake of going anywhere else ever again

Comment: While visiting family i needed an alignment, balance and tire rotation. I contacted Friends and dropped my car off. Soon after they found a lower control arm was worn and needed to be replaced.They took care of the original issues and the repair quickly, and at a price which didn’t impact our vacation. After 1200 mile journey home i can say all the work was done correctly as we had zero issues!Alex was friendly, professional, knowledgeable and Courteous.I would recommend friends to locals as well as people passing through. They are fair, professional and not looking to take advantage of out of towners.

Comment: I recently went to Friends Auto because I needed my power steering lines fixed/replaced. When I was calling around getting Quotes, Friends quoted me a few hundred dollars less than the other places I called and when all was said and done it was literally half what other wanted! It only took a few hours and they were super friendly there, they really live up to their name! Extremely reasonable prices and quick and friendly service, I’ll definitely be taking my car there for any other work I’ll need to have done.

I went there he told me exactly what is wrong with my car and what is worth and not worth fixing. He did fix many things and I was surprised how reasonable his labor cost is. Others, would have charged me at least triple! Honest, nice, straight-forward and does a good job! Rare these days! Keep it up!

Comment: The Auto Tech team /Mechanics John, Ned did a great job repairing my vehicle with a front drive shaft, air conditioner condenser and front break pads on my vehicle. The repairs were made in a timely manner & prices were reasonable. I am very satisfied with the results. I recommend this auto shop for your auto repairs.

Comment: Ned and the rest of the guys at friends Auto Service took really good care of me. I was in and out quickly and the problem with my car has been just fine ever since. I recommend everyone to bring their vehicle in for service and let them take good care of you like they did for me. Thanks guys!

Comment: Fast, courteous, no-haggle service. I have had all of my automobiles maintained by Friends Auto over the last 10+ years. They are fast, inexpensive, and honest. If you are better-off getting a dealer-provided part, they will tell you. Best Auto Shop in the Metro....hands down!!!

Comment: Ive been coming here for years. Everyone is always friendly and helpful. Personally, as a single female, I dont feel as though Im being taken advantage of. Theyre always honest and fairly priced (usually lower). Just good honest people that do great work!!
