Comment: We love Hoover Street Auto. Diagnoses are spot on, and service is prompt, efficient, and scheduling is respected. Weve been to many auto mechanics in Ann Arbor over the years, and do not plan to go to anyone else now.

Comment: My good buddy Mike, who takes excellent care of my S4 over at Stadium Auto, sent me over to Hoover street to get the timing belt fixed on my Honda. These guys did a great job, really fast turnaround and fixed me up perfect! Reliable, excellent service is worth its weight in gold when youre getting auto work done, and these guys are the best.

Comment: Short review: Good folks! Knowledgeable & Professional, will absolutely be using them for all needed work moving forward!Long review:My 2001 Toyota sat and rotted down south before I bought it and got it running (Im a shade tree mechanic on my best days) so I was wholly unsurprised when I drove it 1500 miles then parked it in the first snow it ever experienced and a good number of the bits I was keeping an eye on finally went out.I walked into Hoover Street Auto just after Christmas and spoke with them. They knew their stuff and I was confident using them. I had no issue setting up an appointment for that Friday with the understanding I would get the car back Tuesday (New Year weekend), but that was fine because I didnt need it until Tuesday night.They went above and beyond getting the work done and having it ready for me to pick up by the time they closed that Friday so I would have it for the weekend. Sure, it was in part because they werent terribly busy, but its rare to have a company quote you a pickup day then deliver early, regardless of the circumstances.After I got it back and drove it for several days it became apparent the new power steering pump was faulty. They got it warrantied out and, again, got the car back to me in record time.I couldnt be happier with my experience.Other than being outstanding people, their labor rates are fair and they didnt try to sell me on the unnecessary work that I know it still needs (again, it sat and rotted before I got it) but they ensured it was good to drive until I get around to doing more work on it.

Comment: After learning from my car dealership that a control arm in my car needed replacing, I had Hoover give me a second opinion. Making an appointment was easy and they saw me within the week. Before replacing the control arm, there was a thorough inspection on my vehicle. I was most impressed with the detailed report that included pictures letting me know exactly what needed to be done. Ed and his staff finished the job in a day. I felt valued as a customer and will continue to patronize their business.

Comment: Outstanding service! Ed and Tom are priceless to this organization. Upon arriving, they heard my car(yes, the noise was terrible) and said it would take 5 minutes. What!! Only 5 minutes….and they knew what it needed, fixed it, and I was out the door. I was flabbergasted to say the least. These guys are the BEST.Thanks again and very much appreciated. I will tell everyone I know about you guys.

Comment: Brought in my car with multiple issues including a much-needed clutch replacement. The service was amazing, I got all of my questions answered and felt very well taken care of. Car is working like a charm and they even showed me how to check for future issues with my coolant tank. Highly recommend coming here for small or big repairs!

Comment: Dave and team at Hoover Street went way out of their way to make my weekend and next week far far easier. I brought my car in Friday just after noon with no expectations. Not only did they look at it right away, but they had a fix that got me back on the road the same day.My new supervisor is in town next week and now I dont have any competing priorities and can do what I need to do - and they didnt even know.Ive lived in Ann Arbor for 2 years and had a couple misfires with mechanics before now. Great communications, super reliable, and surprisingly affordable for pretty much being on campus. 10/10 would recommend.

Comment: These people were great to deal with. Quick appointment, knowledgeable, good service and price. The 23 year old car had a check engine light on. For about $200 bucks, I made the easy decision to have them read the codes and diagnose parts. I even got photos in my test report of the 3 parts that have slowly gone bad, so now I know what Im replacing.

Comment: This shop is 10/10. They are responsible, kind, and prompt. We have taken out cars here for years. They have helped me out when I had a dealership nightmare oil change and more recently when the dealership was trying to scam me into doing a lot of maintenance that had already been done. Honesty is my number one priority with mechanics, and I find it here.

Comment: We have been working with the street auto group since 2015 when we moved to Michigan. We have taken our cars to Stadium Street Auto, State Street Auto, and now Hoover Street Auto. They were all great. Hoover is 10/10 for sure. They have established so much trust with us that I can confidently recommend them to everyone. They are honest about what needs to be done on a car. If they ever make any mistakes, they are upfront about it and resolve it. We have paid them LOTS of money over the years (multiple cars, lots of maintenance, I break things sometimes...) and I will gladly continue to hire them for all of our auto needs.

Comment: I had a piece of plastic (attached to the bumper) folded back and scraping against the ground, making a horrible sound, after going through a deep puddle. I came to Hoover Street Auto Repair to see if they could help. It was a little after 5 and all the the mechanics had already gone home and the door was locked. The Manager, Ed, was on his way out the door, but he agreed to come out to look at it. Then he went back in to get some Zip Ties and came out again. He got under the bumper to reattach the broken piece to the bottom of the bumper. I offered to pay him for his time and effort, but he would not take any money!

Comment: There are mechanics and there are Mechanics. Hoover is a Mechanic. I am an old school car buyer, particularly early model Asian vehicles. I have used various mechanics in the area including Hoover, which has always provided quality repairs. My most recent was a prestine 1999 Acura. I had more of a trouble shooting request just to have the car in tip top shape but when I called two other Asian repair specialists ( both closer to my home) I was immediatley told my car was too old, no follow up questions or clarifications, just a short refusal. I called Hoover to schedule and not one comment about the age of the vehicle or hesitation to service. I brought it in, signed off on the estimate for diagnosis, and waited for the results. Turns out I am a dummy and misunderstood the gauges and nothing was wrong but was instead operating the car wrong. They let me know and because my error was obvious, and they discovered it immediatley, they did not charge me. I was impressed and humbled by their willingness and honesty. Like I said, Mechanics.

Comment: Updated 7/25/2023:I had one of my cars fixed there a few years ago and earned some rewards. When I brought another car in for a very expensive repair a year later, I was denied to apply the rewards to the bill. I was pretty upset about that and decided not to go back to this mechanic again. However, after complaining about this in a review on Google recently, I was contacted immediately and offered a refund in the amount of rewards. It was explained to me on the phone that perhaps a new person hired at that time did not know how to handle the rewards. Anyway, I am glad that they care about feedbacks from customers.

Comment: Hoover st auto was amazing beginning to end! i brought my car in for an initial inspection a week prior to an 11 hour road trip and they fixed my breaks, performed an alignment, and replaced my right CV- joint. i picked it up and later felt as though there was something else wrong - they soon found out my left break hose had collapsed and they ended up replacing both the left and right hoses free of charge forme! rob was so thorough and very patient with walking me through everything, and they really do care about their quality of service and customer care. david was also very kind as well. they fixed everything, did it with a smile on their face, and we made it to our destination safely. thank you hoover st auto!!

Comment: This is the best mechanic in Ann Arbor by a long way. The service is incredibly thorough, quick, and the staff are extremely kind and generous. We had a problem with our door a while ago and when I visited the store they offered to walk back to my house with me to take a look. You couldnt ask for better service in the city.

Comment: Hoover Street Auto Repair is the kind of business that all auto shops should strive to be. From the inquiry phone call I made until the end of business between us, they were absolutely stellar. Upon inspection, I got a detailed inspection report complete with 34 detailed pictures pin-pointing everything they found on the vehicle. I have NEVER got this complete of a report from a auto shop.I dont think I have ever dealt with a more genuine, customer service driven auto shop. Rob and Dave were super patient and detailed in all of our communication. I can say this enough -- Hoover Street Auto Repair is THE PLACE to take your car in Ann Arbor!

Comment: We were facing an hour long drive home when we noticed the car seemed to be leaking. We called Hoover Street Auto Repair, and despite being very busy, they said they could check the fluid levels and top up if necessary. Their technician, Tom , came out right away, checked the fluids, identified the leak, topped it up, and assured us we would get home safely. They refused our offer of payment. Many thanks to Tom, Dave and the rest of the crew at Hoover Street. We highly recommend them!

Comment: Hoover St diagnosed my headlights not working as a corroded relay in the battery junction box. The repair was done within a week, delayed only due to obtaining a part on a 10-year old car from out of state. They also reconnected a loose heat shield on the underside of the car. Shortly after the repair, I receive a notification from Ford Motor that there was a national recall on the battery junction box for the exact repair Id just had completed with Hoover. The recall stated that they would refund any previous repairs provided a detailed receipt was provided. I contacted Hoover St and told them about the recall, and asked if they could add additional details, just to be sure Ford would cover it. They added a lot of very detailed notes to the invoice and emailed it to me so I wouldnt have to pick it up. They didnt have to do that for me, but they went above and beyond. This was my first visit to Hoover St, also, so its not like I was a consistent customer. However, they will definitely be seeing me again for future repairs and maintenance.

Comment: Ive been bringing my Honda Civic here for the past 9 years. I trust these guys, their prices are fair, and they explain my cars issues in a way that a non-mechanic can understand, without being condescending (a difficult balance for others sometimes). I started coming here when I was 23 (Im female), and at other mechanics Id always felt talked down to or taken advantage of, but these professionals respect me as a car owner and care about me as a customer.

Comment: I have not used the service department just yet. But I called to ask questions about purchasing used Subaru Forester and what years were good and they offer a service to look over your used car before purchase from top to bottom. Thanks so much it really helped ease the uncertainties of getting a used Subaru Forester! I know where I will be taking the car I have not found yet! Excellent patience and kindness for taking the time out over the phone at the end of a long day.

Comment: The experience was wonderful and exceeded my expectations from the first phone call I made to schedule an appointment through the servicing of both of our cars. We were told elsewhere we needed a new alternator and battery for $$$$. After carefully inspecting the vehicle, the mechanic determined that there was a problem with the trunk latch that left the interior light burning. The latch was repaired and problem solved. The repair cost 1/6 of the original solution proposed by another shop. Hoover Street Auto Repair’s careful service inspires trust!

Scheduling the service was easy, location and drop off convenient, and the service was performed quickly, professionally, and at a reasonable price. The courtesy and good humor of the staff I dealt with were also a real plus. On the basis of my experience, I highly recommend Hoover St. for whatever car service you might need. Jonathan Penn

Comment: David HOOKED me up! I was in a bind, and they took the time to accomplish a repair with professionalism, care, and attention to detail. I am a very particular person, and usually do my own repairs.They went much farther than the extra mile with little add ons (dielectric grease, terminal pads, wirebrushing electrical contacts, and routing the ground strap in a gradual bend) and steps that take a little bit of time, but result in a superior job which lasts the longest.Do not hesitate to bring (or tow!) your car here for any repair large or small, they will take care of you like you wanted your dad to!

Comment: David was absolutely amazing! I needed a new tire (after a nail ruined my old one) and called so many of the “chain” places. They were all booked out weeks OR wanted me to leave my car for a few days/the entire day.David called around to do some digging, was able to find a tire that would fit and got it done! Very kind, knowledgable and fast. I had a new tire and my car back within 2.5 ish hours. (and the tire wasn’t an outrageous price.)Will absolutely be returning for any and all car needs going forward.

Comment: David was unbelievably kind and helpful when I stopped in, without an appointment, to identify a strange new smell--as a new used car owner I am admittedly erring on the side of caution...perhaps a little too much though as the source of the suspicious rubber-y smell was in fact the tires on the bike I put in my backseat this morning! I so appreciate the goodnatured help he provided (free of any charge and a total of maybe 10 minutes!) I think I found my car guys :)

Comment: This has to be one of the best repair shops in town. We have a 2013 Honda Fit whose Tire Pressure Monitoring System continued to malfunction after getting a blow out replaced at another garage. We went with Hoover street as they list themselves as an alternative to Honda dealerships for repairs. They ran a full check of the vehicle and managed to catch some other issues including a bad battery that was in need of replacement. I LOVE this aspect of their service: you get a full breakdown of the vehicles health along with photos, data, and comments. Its crystal clear and thorough. I had been using this vehicle for deliveries, so making sure its in top shape is vital. The TPMS system malfunctioned a few times and required more than one visit but they were finally able to rework the system into behaving correctly. This issue had been a challenge for awhile and they were the ones who were able to solve it over anyone else. They didnt charge me for labor on the later return visits for that same issue (I know this one was a pain, thanks guys!). I was so impressed with their service and attention, I brought in my beater 2002 Ford Escape in for a full evaluation and to finally repair an oil leak I had been putting off. Its got plenty of issues but I just need it to get around town and its four wheel drive still works. They gave me a full break down and we chatted about what repairs were worth seeing through in order to extend the vehicles life and safety, including the oil leak. Now the truck is in even better shape and will definitely see a few more seasons of use. Thank you Hoover, you all are the absolute best: honest, thorough, fast, and fairly priced. The communication was easy and I appreciated the follow ups too. There is no where else we will take our vehicles in Ann Arbor.

Comment: My car has literally never run better. TBH the car was old and falling apart to begin with, but it had been limping along slowly acquiring problems until I was certain it would have to be sold for scrap. It had been to several car repair shops in the past, each with the same outcome no idea, just doesnt run well. Hoover St. Auto was not only able to quickly diagnose what was going on with the car, but was able to expertly fix it and give real time reports on how the repairs were going. Best auto repair shop in Ann Arbor!!

Comment: I had a very pleasant experience with Hoover Street Auto repair. I walked in during my lunch break needing a radiator hose for my Chevy Cruze. Josh placed an order, allowed me to leave the vehicle at their lot and I went back to work. Couple hours later, Josh texted me stating that my car is ready for pickup.. Josh went and go the extra mile by installing the hose himself, topped off my coolant, do a pressure test and only charged me for the hose. I couldnt asked for a better experience when my car breakdown. Josh is a professional, knowledgeable friendly mechanic. I would highly recommend this shop to friends and family.

Comment: I found Hoover Auto on Reddit after other shops messed up some basic repairs on my car. I took my old Honda for complete inspection and they gave very honest opinions. Since that day I am going with these guys as they won’t pressurize you to sell items you don’t need in your car. I recommend Hoover Auto to anyone looking for work done on their car. I have got work done on my car twice and really happy with the results. Car drives like a brand new one.

Comment: My check engine light came on, so I knew I needed my engine checked out. After the initial vehicle inspection, Tom sent me the pictures and explanations of the repairs needed. He also took the time to call me and make sure I understood everything he sent. They were able to replace my gasket covers, 4 spark plugs, coil, engine motor mount, and oil change all in the same day as the inspection. The repairs also came with a 36,000 mi/3 year warranty. I highly recommend Hoover Street Auto.

Comment: I called Hoover Street this afternoon to ask about removing/drilling out license plate bolts that had sheared off. Tom was fantastic, he had me come by the shop immediately, removed the old bolts on the spot, replaced them with new bolts, and wouldnt accept any payment. Less than an hour from calling the shop to driving away with the issue fixed. I will definitely be returning to this shop when I need further maintenance done on my car.

Comment: A really excellent, honest and thorough car repair shop in Ann Arbor. They provided a very detailed report (with pictures!!) of what was going on with my car and were able to fix it even though it was a tricky issue that other places had failed to fix. They also stood by their warranty when a light came back on and re-checked the issue to complete resolution.

Comment: These guys were awesome. I had major repairs needed the weekend before driving across the country. They had it in and out all in the same day and were super transparent when walking me through the repair estimate. It’s nice that they use photos to show exactly what’s wrong with the car. They also answered my questions after picking it up on that Friday afternoon right before closing. Would definitely recommend them.

Comment: The guys at Hoover Street Auto Repair were super helpful when I needed to replace a brake light. One of the screws was stuck in place, so they spent about 5 mins trying various tools to get it off and then put the new bulb in for me at no charge!

Comment: I’ve been taking our vehicles to Hoover Street Auto for several years now, and have been so impressed with their work that I go out of my way to continue to take our vehicles there even though I don’t have to drive into Ann Arbor anymore for work. They are extremely thorough and do a quality job every time. Their mechanics are highly skilled, and they do charge higher for their labor than other shops out there, but it’s important to value quality work over racing to the lowest price possible. In order to maintain their skilled labor, they have to take care of their employees. They are a reputable small business, and have been invaluable for keeping our vehicles running.

These guys were so helpful, great communication with pictures of damage, necessary repairs itemized and sent via link, discussion of repairs when necessary, and reasonable charges for the repairs. Easy for my daughter to walk from campus to retrieve her car when repairs were complete. So appreciated their help and glad to know that there is a great place for my daughter to take her car to for maintenance!

Comment: The service at Hoover Street Auto is the best Ive experienced at a shop thus far. They got me in very quickly, and were very communicative. They did a full assessment of my vehicle and advised which items were critical. They were upfront about all fees and services every step of the way. My vehicle really gave them a hard time, but they kept at it. I really appreciate their thoroughness and integrity. On top of all that, the guys were easy to talk to. I had to get a lot of work done, and the price seemed fair to me given the parts, labor, and all the care they took to make sure my vehicle was safe to drive. I will definitely be back.

Comment: Hoover St is great! Tom was super helpful and made sure I had a loaner car for when our repairs were being done. Even after I had to reschedule twice because of my own scheduling conflicts.He kept me up-to-date and was super great with my six-year-old…. He didn’t seem bothered at all, and put on a movie for him.My fave thing is that the car is doing much better. They ran a full diagnostic on our first visit and put the diagnostic cost towards our service costs. The oil change was reasonably priced, everyone who works there seems very kind. We shopped around for our most recent service, control arm work, and while they can be pricier, they weren’t with this repair because they’re like the only shop locally that just replaces one part of the piece we had worked on instead of changing out the entire assembly. It was all done inside of one day.Their loaner car is a testament to their good work… it had over 270k miles on it and it drove beautifully.Definitely recommended this place! They do good work, they’re kind and they’re not selling stuff you don’t need.

Comment: One day my tire pressure light went on despite the fact that my dad had my car checked out before I came out to college with it. Nonetheless, I was scared that I might get overcharged and I wouldnt even know as I know nothing about cars, but Hoover Street Auto Repair worked to find out what was wrong with the tire and found nothing, so they just reset my tire pressure to the exact right amount and charged me nothing. This came as a surprise as I was expecting to pay at least something but I payed nothing at all. Overall, they are very professional, on time, and good quality from my experience.I now go there for any car problems Im experiencing!

Comment: This is the first time Ive been compelled to leave an online review for any business, good or bad, and its been a year in the making. Ive owned a variety of vehicles and worked regularly with a variety of repair shops, large and small, mom/pop and national chain, foreign and domestic, etc. Ive taken my cars and SUVs to multiple businesses regularly enough to be on a first-name business with most of the staff and even have their personal contact info. The service Ive gotten at Hoover St. has been far and away the best of any of them, and Im certain none of the staff even know my name (as Ive only needed to visit the shop and handful of times over the last few years.) Ive at times felt disregarded at other shops after voicing my concerns or observations, but the staff at Hoover St. has been nothing but respectful and informative. It can be intimidating to come to any auto shop by yourself and expect to be treated fairly and taken seriously, especially as a young woman, but that has never been an issue for me here.

Comment: Had a great experience at Hoover Auto last week! I submitted a request for an appointment on a Thursday, got a call to schedule the next day on Friday, dropped my car off Monday at 8am and had it back Tuesday by 4. Tom (& others) were very nice and kept me up to date on everything that was happening on my car via text and phone. The inspection report card-like system made it really easy to see what all needed priority attention and what could wait. Would definitely recommend Hoover to anyone in need of car services. Nice and convenient location to campus too to drop off a car and walk wherever need be.

Comment: I’m on the hunt for a reliable used car for my daughter and brought two possible candidates to Hoover Street Auto Repair for a pre-purchase inspection. They were very busy and couldn’t get me in for a full inspection, but took time to look the cars over. The quick inspection revealed several critical issues with both cars, saving me thousands of dollars. Christian and Tom wouldn’t take any money for these inspections since they weren’t able to get the cars up on a lift and do a full inspection. They were professional and incredibly helpful and I’ll be bringing my own vehicle here for service from now on. These guys are great!

Comment: As an addendum to my review from earlier today: The general manager from Hoover Street Auto contacted me within a couple hours of my posting. After a discussion, I do believe that this business means well and cares very much about their service. I cant claim to fully understand the technical explanation offered, but, nonetheless the bottom line seems to be a communication breakdown. Mike was apologetic for my experience at Hoover and receptive to my feedback. Hes making changes with his team regarding how certain repairs (and what they entail) are communicated to the customer.

Comment: I spoke with Ed today because I live in Connecticut and I’m driving to Michigan on Friday with my Nissan Rogue 2015. I get nervous because I have 93,000 miles on the car and although I keep up with the maintenance very well I sometimes do some overkill just to prevent any breakdowns. Let’s face it, no one wants to have a problem with their car right in the middle of Pennsylvania!! I spoke with Ed because I was concerned about the coils and thought as long as I was there, just to be safe maybe I should have them replaced. He reassured me that at that mileage I should be fine. They are not due for replacement until 100,000 miles and didn’t see any need to just replace them if I’m not having any issues. He was not in a rush to take my money and offered to even do an inspection before the trip home if I was nervous. What a lovely, polite gentleman. There should be more places like this and people like Ed. Highly recommend this shop!!!

Comment: I had a fantastic experience with Hoover. I am relatively new to the area and didnt know where to take my car. Luckily I was referred to Hoover where I received swift and kosher customer and mechanical service. I now feel confident driving off to the Wild West on my first ever road trip.Also, I learned after servicing my car that Hoover has a built in rewards system which provides clients with the option to channel their rewards towards future visits OR a select nonprofit. I find this to be reflective of Hoovers awareness of the importance of community support and how expenses of vehicular maintenance can be a barrier for many individuals.

Comment: I was in need of an auto mechanic that works on a Mitsubishi exhaust system. My usual mechanic was unable to secure the parts needed. I searched around on the web and found Hoover Street Auto Repair. They had great reviews, so I gave them a try. I wont be using any other mechanic again; Hoover Street Auto Repair is my go-to mechanic from now on. Extremely friendly, much lower price than anticipated, and super speedy! They had my quote within an hour and had my exhaust system specially welded in-house and rebuilt in less than five hours. Highly recommend giving them a call for your auto repairs!

Comment: Hoover Auto is GREAT! Ive taken my car there several times. Most recently, I had to abandon my car nearby due to a severe scraping sound that sounded unsafe to drive. They were able to squeeze me in between appointments to diagnose the cause---some debris got into the undercarriage and dislodged a heat shield into my break pads. They fixed the issue quickly and for a minimal cost. I had my car back just a few hours later. Very kind people.

I got there and Tom take a look at it and fixed it probably in 20 minutes. They did not charged us since it was a quick and temporary fixed. I strongly recommend this place and I will have it in mind when I move to Ann Arbor.

Comment: The customer service at Hoover Street is fabulous. Helpful, reliable and trustworthy. We had a problem with our A/C and the service repair shop at the dealer said it was our air compressor (which was shocking to us given the age of our car) and quoted us a pretty high price for a repair. We took our car to Hoover for a second opinion and the skilled mechanics there diagnosed the true source of our problem (not the compressor) and fixed it with no hassle (and at almost half the cost). Cant say enough about how great this shop is.

Comment: A few weeks ago I got the dreaded news that my 2009 Subaru Forester was experiencing head gasket issues. As many Subaru owners know, this is both a pricey and frustrating diagnosis. Do I repair the parts? Or do I trade it in? After weighing my options and deciding to repair I called several mechanics in the area. Some never returned my calls, some quoted but never really worked on a Subarus before, and all of them gave a vague explanation of the issue and possible fixes. Until I found Hoover Street Auto Repairs website. They provided in detail description of the issue, possible fixes, and within a day of submitting for a quote had a detailed response for me. Ed, answered all my questions, no matter how small. He made sure I understood everything that was going to be done and followed up with me everyday they had my car letting me know where they were at and if we were on track. The best part, I never once had to go in person. I spoke to Ed via the phone and email. I was able to drop off my car after business hours using their secure key drop box/lock box. Will definitely be coming back for future repairs.

Comment: Im not that good with cars, but I know that I need to take care of mine. Called ahead to ask for prices and if they could replace a headlight that went out. Tom replaced my headlight in less than 10 minutes and was kind enough to cover it for me. Super attentive place, he listened to my probably repetitive and basic questions and explained/answered them very simply and professionally. If I ever need anything else done Im coming to Hoover.

Comment: Took my car in for some battery trouble, and a leak was found in my transmission coolant line as well. The team at Hoover was able to repair the leak and straighten out the battery trouble for a reasonable price and got it all done the same day. Throughout the entire process Tom was honest, straightforward, and in constant communication with me about my car.

Comment: Hoover Street Auto has consistently been helpful, prompt, and polite.Theyve saved me at least once or twice from buying a pretty bad used-car that wouldve cost way more to fix than they were worth.Highly recommend getting a pre-purchase at this location.

Comment: The Hoover Street Auto family have been a constant support to me with all my car troubles. They are honest, reliable and genuinely want to help people. They explain what is wrong with my car and utilize an app that shows you the health of your vehicle, along with pictures of what needs fixed. Very grateful for their service so far. I will definitely be a long term customer.

Comment: The work performed on my Tacoma was well done. From the initial contact through paying for services rendered your personnel were professional.The time and cost estimates were well laid out, and I was consulted at each step in the process to ensure the work I was able to pay for was done.Thank you very much for high-quality professional service.My main problem of intermittent rough idle was well diagnosed as inoperative 02 sensor, and they were replaced at a reasonable cost. I no longer have to feather the gas pedal at stops. You also diagnosed other problems I was not aware of and I will be getting those taken care of in the future.Great people, great service. Well worth the cost.

The staff is knowledgeable and accommodating in a way that is hugely refreshing for the automotive industry. I will not take my car anywhere else - their team is trustworthy and they go above and beyond to do right by their customers. I also appreciate the detailed emails/texts with photographs of the vehicle repairs for future reference. I can’t recommend them highly enough!

Comment: Having worked as an ASE certified technician, in the past I have performed my own repairs and maintenance on my 04 Vibe. Currently, I commute one hour to work full time in mental health care and have a full time class load in college. Getting my vehicle serviced quickly was fairly important to me.Hoovers after hours drop off and pick up was flawless and extremely convenient for me. I dropped my car after-hours on Thursday, and was contacted first thing in the morning on Friday. Technicians took clear photographs of failing parts and sent them to me via text link. Customer service and technicians provided me with timely updates, and my vehicle, which required control arm replacement, valve cover gasket replacement, full brake service, and exhaust repair was completed before 5pm the same day. To pay, I was sent a link via text and made my payment online. After payment was received, Hoover texted me a lock box number and one time combination to retrieve my keys.Pricing at Hoover is fair and competitive. They are not the cheapest shop, but they are far from the most expensive.Friendly and professional contact free service. I would absolutely do business with them again.

Comment: My experience with Hoover Street Auto Repair was wonderful - the staff were all incredibly kind, patient, helpful and knowledgeable. Not only did they make quick work of a problem that had stumped other technicians, but they gave me a loaner car to use for transportation while my car was being worked on and they gave me frequent updates on how everything was going. I couldnt be happier with my experience and I will certainly be coming back to Hoover Street for all my auto needs in the future!

Comment: Hoover Street Auto Repair was recommended to me when I first moved to Ann Arbor. They have always been the most honest, dependable, and reputable service. When I bought my new Jeep for some reason I felt that the dealership would be the best place to have service done. I couldnt have been more wrong. I came back to Hoover Street and will never leave. I feel confident that any issue with my car will be diagnosed accurately, explained to me honestly, and fixed appropriately. They stand by their work. They are also the friendliest and most caring people in the service industry I have met.

Comment: I rarely leave reviews for anything, but Hoover Street Auto deserves one. Ive been taking my car there for about 3 years now. They are always honest, fast, and very detailed. You will always be able to get an appointment within a few days and they are easy to get ahold of. They always call you to give you a quote and explain things before doing any work. I never feel like they try to force me to get unnecessary repairs. Last week, I brought my car in for what I thought was a fluid leak. They looked at it, it was an easy fix, and they did not charge me. Such great customer service and kindness! I will never go to another shop in Ann Arbor.

Comment: I had the best experience for car repair service that I’ve ever had. AHONEST. HONEST. HONEST! After looking at my car they gave me a really clear description of what was wrong with the car and whether it was a good investment to fix the problem. (The car had some many problems, that to Fix what I brought it in for, would not be worth it.) Being a woman, most places would go ahead ,fix the problem, charge me, knowing full well the car was on it’s last leg. I call that great honesty. I will always bring me. At to Hoover. Thanks guys!!

They do an excellent job each time and are really transparent about timelines and cost. TBH Im clueless when it comes to cars but they always meet me at my level without talking down to me, and never try to talk me into work that isnt necessary. Each time theyve helped me prioritize what is urgent and what can wait for next time based on my needs and my budget. Everyone working the desks/phones are always professional and friendly, and they always manage a quick turnaround for me. They make repairs easy for this Volvo owner -- thanks!!

Comment: Hoover has been my go-to mechanic throughout my time in college. Mike and Ed have helped me and my sister deal with car problems fairly and quickly time after time. I always feel that theyre giving us the best service they can for very fair prices.Something to consider as a college student in the area--whenever they do work on a vehicle, they create a comprehensive online checklist of problems with the car. This was ideal for my father who doesnt live in Ann Arbor because he could check the status of the car from home and feel confident theyre doing the work they need to.Hoover will forever be my familys Ann Arbor area mechanic, and I highly recommend them!

Comment: Update: Hoover Street Auto was there for me in the middle of the quarantine when my car just stopped working. They took my car in a respectful, cautious and no-contact manner. I felt completely safe. They also performed the needed work on time and at a reasonable cost.Hoover Street Auto is exceptionally honest, reliable and fast.Professional from start to finish! I was treated with respect and kindness as I explained the history of my hybrid vehicle and what I thought needed to be addressed. When the work performed was communicated to me later, it was made clear what should to be done asap and what could wait. Living within a budget, that was extremely valuable to feel at least a little in control of my $. I will be back.

Theres a reason I keep coming back: Hoover is the best place to take any car for regular maintenance, engine care and repair---basically anything under the hood. The management and people who work there are friendly and prompt. Work always gets done on time. Best of all, Hoover earned its trust from me by always being honest about work that needs---or doesnt need---to be done. Great place!

Comment: I just moved to Ann Arbor and desperately needed my car serviced. I usually just take my car to a dealer because it is easier, but I decided to give Hoover Street a try because of the reviews. I was not disappointed. They had my inspection done within an hour of dropping my car off, and didnt push me to repair everything that was wrong, as I am looking for a new car and just wanted to make my current one safe to drive. They sent me a detailed description of everything they inspected with pictures included. My car was done by 4:30 the same day, which never happens at the dealership. I couldnt pick up my car until later because I work a late shift, so they put my key in a lock box so that I could get it after work. Overall, it was a great experience as a newcomer to Ann Arbor. I will definitely recommend them to all of my friends!

Comment: Got a new to me car inspected here today-was my first time there. I waited while they inspected. Mike came out with the things that needed to be done. Being a bit of an older car, there were a few things, but he easily prioritized them, and we did the most important things today. Not only was it a doable price, but I also got a discount for being a first time customer! Everyone was very friendly, and everything being done was shown to me on my car, and explained very clearly. I was not sold anything I didnt need, and the work was done the same day. I even received a phone call update in the middle of the day! I will definitely be back for all my future maintenance!02/26/2020 update- I still go to Hoover, and still absolutely love it! No complaints at all.

That was the best decision that I could have made.They understood my stress level and made everything extremely easy for both me and my daughter.

I had an issue with my car, and though they couldnt find anything wrong, they checked and double checked it for me. After all those checks, they didnt even charge me a penny because they didnt do any repairs on the vehicle. Ive never had an experience at a mechanic where they charge me less than I thought until I started coming to Hoover Auto!

I have always felt like they were making decisions that are best for the car, and not for their wallets, and will continue to return for this reason. The mechanics always ensure I understand what it is they are doing and why, and they have a neat online system where you can see their appraisal of your vehicle with photos and descriptions to match. Would definitely recommend.

Text updates and a digital inspection report with pictures and descriptions of recommended repairs helped me prioritize what I wanted them to do VS the easy stuff that I could do myself for much cheaper.The Con:Theyre not cheap. Easily 20% more than my local shop. I only take my car here out of convenience while Im at work (its extremely convenient for me). If youre looking to save money, definitely shop around.

Comment: My family drove from NYC to Ann Arbor (10 hours) to drop off our daughter for freshman year at the University, and on the way our 14-year old Sienna developed a nasty rattle. The noise was so bad both my wife and I separately contemplated the possibility of buying a car in Michigan, or renting one just to get home. But that was unnecessary because the fine fellows at Hoover Street Auto fixed her up in time to get us home on schedule. They were polite, efficient, friendly, and went a little out of their way to help a non-local in need.

Comment: I was shopping around last night desperately trying to get the best quote from different auto shops, after a Canton dealership quoted me so much for a repair cost on a leak they found during a car inspection yesterday. I almost cried when I saw the number on the quote. When I called one of the shops in AA, I was recommended by another repair shop’s owner who’s apparently related to the owner of Hoover auto repair to give them a shot. I spoke with Mike last night and he asked me to bring in the car this AM. About an hour or so later, I dropped my jaw on the floor when Mike only quoted me less than a quarter of what I was quoted from a dealership in Canton. I almost couldn’t believe what I heard that I had to have him repeat the dollar amount and explained to me what they really found! He printed me the quote for my husband to see. I’m SO glad I went to Hoover auto repair today! Mike and everyone was nice and professional. This really shows that not only they care about fixing your car but also about saving your money! I seriously recommend people to mark this place as your go to place for car repairs if you have foreign cars. Thanks for making my day, Mike! You guys are the best!!

I normally repair my own vehicles and so I know when a repair shop is trying to pull punches. I’ve struggled with finding a reputable and honest auto repair shop in the past. But these guys have gone above and beyond to be fair and transparent with me and I think they will do the same for anyone.

Comment: I started coming here for repairs because its walking distance from home, but the service is excellent and I wouldnt go anywhere else. Prompt service, good prices and very accommodating (for example, my muffler broke right before I went on vacation for a week and they agreed to just keep it there for the whole week). I know very little about cars but I will say Ive never had an issue with a repair. Theyre also very straightforward about what repairs or maintenance are really necessary for an old car like mine and what I should just as soon skip and not spend the extra money.

Comment: I initially chose Hoover Auto St on a whim, based on its convenient location and positive reviews, but stayed a customer for several years because of the excellent experiences Ive had with them. Mike, as well as all of the other employees, have consistently provided outstanding auto service, as well as customer service. Theyve done great work on both vehicles Ive brought to them over the years (2002 Honda Accord, 2011 Jeep Wrangler), and I always felt the team was very honest, and never once tried to talk me into additional work that I didnt need.When I bought my new Wrangler, and still owned the Honda Accord, I took the Honda in for one last check-up to see if any work needed to be done before I sold it. About a month later, before I even put it up for sale, Mike called me and said he had a customer looking to buy a used Honda, and gave me his number. I sold it to that customer less than a week later! That is the kind of above-and-beyond service Ive received at Hoover Street Auto.Id still be a customer today, if I hadnt moved to Boston, and I miss having a shop that I can trust like Hoover.

Comment: Hoover Street Auto is extremely trustworthy and professional. They are always pleasant on the phone, never charge for unreasonable things, and are extremely timely. I recommend Hoover Street Auto to everyone...much more affordable and reasonable than the Acura dealership ever was and they are kind...also they have Zingermans coffee fresh each day :)

Comment: Ive been to Hoover St. Auto twice now for work on an older vehicle. Being a student, the folks at Hoover were very understanding of issues with the car and trying to address them in a manner that was most reasonable. They were always willing to give lengthy and detailed explanations while giving all options (both good for them and bad for their business). I had a difficult job and opted to pull the car out of the shop due to financial reasons and other reasons. They removed a significant chunk of the labor costs used to find the cause and made sure to keep everything on file if I were to return and do the work.In all, I would highly recommend this shop. They certify their work and wont cut corners which is obviously very important in the state of Michigan (rough roads, rough weather, etc.) They truly show a love for fixing vehicles and like to work with the people who own them.

Comment: Every interaction I had with the people at Hoover Auto Repair was polite, helpful, and genuine. They quoted me an estimate and time based on what was most urgent to fix and what I could afford to have done. They were honest and informative throughout the whole process and at the end of it they completed the work much earlier than quoted and just under the cost they quoted me. I am very grateful for that because with two jobs I have very limited time and cannot afford to miss work. I will definitely be going back to them for future repairs (as Im sure my old POS will need them!) They deserve the business and it helps that theyre close - I could easily walk home or around campus while I waited for my vehicle.

Comment: Unbelievable service - our daughters (out-of-state UM student) car wouldnt start, it was after 6pm, no one still open except towing service, and my daughter had to get on a plane to NH at 7am the next morning! We had it towed here, left the key, sent an email regarding the car showing up unannounced in their lot, and I got an unexpected email reply at 8:45pm that night from them!!! In spite of the fact that we had no idea how busy the shop was at the time, they diagnosed the problem, stayed in touch with us, and completed the car repairs before the end of the next day! Mike is great to deal with, explained everything in detail, and proceeded to get the car back in order in less time than it took to figure out how to pick the car up (because my daughter had come home this weekend). I would recommend these guys to anyone in the Ann Arbor area.

Comment: I wrote a bad review for this Hoover Street auto just two nights ago after having a bad first experience, and received a call from the OWNER of Hoover Street auto. Not only did he apologize, but he also wanted to know what happened, how it could be prevented next time, what they could do to fix the problem, and he gave me a full refund. After talking with them some more, I can tell both Brian and Mike (at the service desk) are both genuine guys who are not out to get your money. Brian told me they have a Satisfaction Guarantee, if youre not satisfied he doesnt want your money. Would highly recommend this place for your car. Thanks so much guys.

Comment: Shortly after I moved to Ann Arbor, my car died. One of my neighbors suggested Hoover for their quality and friendly service. I have not been dissapointed yet. I come from a small town, and they remind me of my small town mechanic shop in many ways. I felt comfortable talking to Mike and his staff, and they do all they can to help. They have great reviews for a reason :-)

Comment: I have been going to this auto shop for about a year now, and I wouldnt want to take my car anywhere else. Today, however, is the reason that I finally decided to review. Today, they put a $300 part on my car for free.I took my car in for an oil change and some exhaust work. I knew my brakes were shaky, as well. They called in the morning to let me know the cost of the exhaust work, and that they should probably change out my rotors. Then they called again when they got into my brakes and they were worse than expected. Not the best news, but they were straight forward and honest about the worst case scenario. When I got in to pick up my car, they told me that my catalytic converter needed to be replaced to and that wasnt in the estimate they called me with. As I was mentally calculating the cost, they tell me that they arent going to charge me for it, since it wasnt part of the estimate. Blew my mind. What kind of shop doesnt charge you for a repair because it wasnt in the estimate they called with.I love these guys. I drive an older car, if the litany of repairs needed today didnt clue you in, and they are always straight forward and honest with me. They tell me clearly what is wrong and what the cost is, and they dont try to add repairs on that dont need to be done. They explain things when I ask, but dont talk down to me, which is important to me. Being a young woman, Ive often dealt with mechanics that will talk to me like I know nothing about my car but how to turn the key to start it. Finding one that doesnt was important to me. These guys dont treat me like that. Easily the best mechanics Ive been to.

Comment: Worst possible scenario - Im traveling on I94, 5pm in Friday rush hour traffic. Car starts smoking and luckily the Briarwood Mall exit is next. I check for good reviews on Yelp and see Hoover St. Auto Repair is not too far away. When I call they are helpful and receptive to my problem though they close at 6pm. I drop off my car that night, stay with a friend and by 10:30 the next morning my transmission line problem is identified, fixed and Im on my way home for $250. The staff was courteous, helpful and expedited my service so I wouldnt have to camp out over the weekend in A2 with no car!! Now, I can add an A+ review to this great place!

Comment: Been coming here a year and a half now. Very friendly service. Good people. Trustworthy mechanics. For instance, a while back one of their guys got my floor mat dirty ( I porbably would not have even noticed) with oil from their shoes because the plastic protection piece they use slipped. They told me before I got my car back and did their best to make it right offering me a few options: 1) they will clean it for me, 2) they will order a new mat for me at their expense. And they discounted the cost of service for my inconvenience. Through that experience and simply good service, they have earned a loyal customer.They are likely not cheapest place for an oil change, but they are thorough and the service is worth it. Their service was: synthetic oil, filter, and a courtesy inspection (tire pressure/wear, visual inspection, fluids, belts, hoses) and it cost me a little more than $30 (1/8/15).

Comment: Located in a great spot right next to the big house. I had a flat tire that needed a quick repair and I took it in hoping they could finish it before closing. Within a half hour I was out the door and wasnt charged a dime. Mike at the front was professional and to the point and really helped me out. I would recommend Hoover Auto Repair very highly!

Comment: I replaced the alternator on my car last year with a warranteed part, but it went bad less than a year later. I no longer had access to a lift and couldnt repair it myself, so I brought it to Hoover based on the good reviews. Mike was VERY professional and helpful and had no problem installing the free replacement alternator I brought in (most repair shops like to use their own parts) because of my unique situation. They also discovered another problem with my brakes that was unsafe and informed me of it so I could get it repaired. If I have any more problems with my car while in Ann Arbor, this is the only place I will be bringing it!
