Comment: After I was unable to get to my normal repair shop (I. I.) due to the distance & my fear of driving my car that far, I saw Detroit Garage-Farmington (DGF) online. The owner of my go-to repair shop told me he knew the owner of DGF & that he was a man of integrity. This review barely skims the surface of my respect for the quality of service & professionalism I received! Detroit Garage-Farmington went above & beyond my expectations. They educated me about my car, provided reliable transportation for me while they did the work & was time & cost efficient! If you want peace of mind & great service, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Detroit Garage-Farmington!

Comment: Great service and great experience! The fact they told me Ill be needing brakes soon but didnt try to sell me on getting them done now and I should wait until spring tells me they’re honest. And their charges are fair and reasonable.

Comment: I was referred to The Detroit Garage-Farmington and I could not be more pleased. The work was efficient. The owner and staff were professional, honest and kind. I went on for what I thought was a need for a new starter (based on the message on the dashboard) when my 2015 Volvo would not start. They did a thorough diagnostic evaluation and determined that my battery had just gotten too low. They charged it up. Gave me advice on how to avoid it happening again and sent me on my way. They have a new customer for life.

Comment: We brought our vehicle here thanks to a recommendation after a terrible experience with the dealership we were taking it to and I can easily say we know where we will be taking it from now on. Al and his crew were incredible and made sure we knew everything that was going on every step of the way and they were all so kind. Above all else, they were honest and I never felt pressured to get anything done that I didn’t need to. We will be taking our vehicles there for everything from now on!

Comment: I went in to the Detroit Garage Farmington for the first time for an oil change (Veterans Day promotion-free). It took me a few days to even decide to go in for this since I am a Chevrolet dealership (or whatever make of car I have) patron only. Walking in, I was welcomed and Thanked for my service. I waited for the oil change to be completed living 4 miles away. The oilChange was completed in about 44 minutes. The service person brought the keys to me and advised me that I needed tires. Shocked when he said all four. That’s why I’ve always gone to dealership, normally no surprises. I made the appointment to get them done, telling myself when I got home I’d check the tires myself or have someone else take a look for me and then call Detroit Garage back to cancel. I did the penny test. Another shocker, all 4 tires did need replacing. Of course I kept the appointment. Feeling guilty for thinking what we all think of repair shops, I had to apologize. Al(I believe was my mechanic) received it with a smile. Tires on, anything needed, I was informed prior. To make a long story short, I came out with 4 new tires at a reasonable rate And a new partnership for me and my Trax. Highly recommended. Plus, the reception/waiting area was really clean.Give them a call, you won’t be disappointed.

They are quick, reliable, and help me to understand the issues with my vehicle. Also, Kaitlin is one of the most patient and helpful people in the auto service industry that I have met.

Comment: I brought my 2011 Subaru Outback to Farmington Garage for an oil leak discovered by another shop during a routine spark plug replacement. Al, the service advisor was great! He informed me of the testing that needed to be accomplished and within an hour sent a text link to a site with pictures of the parts of the car in question and repair recommendations. The site was informative and simple to accept or reject repairs. The level of communication was great! By the evening I was told what had been repaired already and when to expect the car to be ready. Start to finish was less than 24 hours and that included diagnosis, getting parts, a full brake service (rotors, pads, fluid flush), and a couple of other minor service items. The prices were very reasonable and repairs done perfectly! Overall I am very pleased and will be returning for all future service and repairs in the future.

Comment: 1st time going to this place. Very clean and nice ppl. I went because my air conditioning is blowing out warm air. So I go here and was quoted $253.99. Fairly reasonable being I called another franchise and was much higher.So they looked at my car, and was till my car is blowing out cold air.. now in my head Im like I know Im not tripping.. Granted they gave me my car back and behold its working.Let me remind you that they did not charge me!Now today July 12 2023, my air is back not working! Im a little irritated about that due to me having to go back and get it fixed!

They also made sure to tell me which repairs were urgent and which could be taken care of at a later time instead of trying to push it all at once.

Comment: Got my oil change done and it wasn’t costly. However I had to reschedule because when I had come in originally, they said they wouldn’t be able to get my car out before the time I needed to go. The next day they made sure to save a slot for me so they could do my oil change right when I got there instead of having to wait for an open dock.

Comment: I was referred to Farmington Garage from Livonia Garage, and I had the diagnostic done on my own.I suggested them to re-install a lever that was out of position in my Mazda 3. I was able to open the glovebox and diagnose on my own that the AC lever was out of position and not engaging with the AC knob on dashboard.The technicians were helpful and fixed the issue within 20-25 minutes. They did not try to upsell additional items nor make any artificial time delays no any attempts to rip me off.Overall, if you have a basic understanding of what specific service you need, you can communicate to the front desk and they will get your vehicle fixed quickly and professionally.

Comment: I went there for a front-end alignment (i do all my car repairs myself, the alignment is the only work i cant).Was highly skeptical at first (especially given the reviews i read), but they earned their money and their keep, fair and square!The part i didnt like at all was inclusion of $8.80 in shop fees on top of the quoted $80 for the alignment. For putting the car on an alignment rack and not using any actual consumables (no oil, washers, bolts, rags, etc), charging shop fees for this is lame. But i said meh! and just moved on.I was also suspicious when i didnt see anyone working on my car (a couple mchanics were casually chatting outside the service bay) and when they claimed the tire pressure in one of my tires was low - but it turns out there WAS someone actually working on my car (i just didnt see him!) And they were right all along about my low tire pressure! So KUDOS to them on that, and sorry for giving them a hard time.At the end, after approx 1 hour, the alignment was absolutely PERFECT (well within the tollerances), the steering wheel perfectly straight, and the car perfectly aligned on the road!They also gave me a printout with pictures of their findings - i already knew what was going on with my car, but for everyone else this will be very helpful.Tips:As part of the work they do, they also offer a free pit stop inspection. DO take advantage of it! It takes an additional 30-40 minutes and it will tell you lots of good info about your car.Did they have the lowest price for the front-end alignment? No. There are shops in the Livonia /Dearborn Heights area that do an excellent job for $60 (no shop fees and with all taxes included) - if you have time, call around and youll find them. Their price (Farmington Garage) was $80, and i guess that if someone lives in the Farmington (Hills)/Bloomfield /Rotal Oak area (where the shops charge $100 and above for the same), this may seem quite decent. But i do shop around and know my car shops. I chose Farmington Garage this time because they were close by and due to the proximity and my time crunch, paying them an extra $20 seemed like a good compromise for me.For the West Bloomfield / Farmington /Farmington Hills / Novi residents, i think Farmington Gagarage is a good choice.Would i go here again? Probably yes - the quality of work was outstanding, and despite me being clearly suspicious, the service advisor (Sara) was still highly professional and curteous (and at the end, after seeing that there was nothing shady going on, my suspicions vanished and i had changed my mind).Another note: their customer waiting area was clean and organized, they had water / coffee / soda drinks available in a fridge, and a jar of snacks & a coloring book for children (the last 2 came in handy for me, as i took my toddler along on this trip and it kept her happy and busy). Additional kudos for thinking of this ;) I would add a couple more coloring books to the pile, though, theyre cheap Dolllar Tree purchases ;)Update: Im giving them 5 stars, they deserve it. I thought my alignment went bad after 2 weeks of having them done - it turned out to be an extremely bad wheel balance on all 4 tires!!! Their alignment is perf!

Comment: Overall, I am pleased with the service I received here. I have used their services before and will likely again.My beef with them is hard to describe. My car is 14 years old and needed an A/C compressor. The price for the part exceeded $600 and another $600 in labor to install. When I questioned it, I was told that it was the factory authorized part, or something to that effect, and it came with a three year warranty. A quick internet search pulled up compressors anywhere from $99 to $320, some with warranties. I asked if there wasnt a quality refurbished compressor available, as I dont believe its necessary to spend top dollar on parts for a14 year old vehicle. They seemed to take offense, and suggested that I get used to rolling my windows down.I understand the need to use quality parts, but I also understand that a 14 year old car does not require a $600 part when a $300 part will do the job. They could stand to be a little flexible and work with people who dont require the top of the line in their older vehicles.

Comment: I took my 2007 Maserati in for chuck hole damage, tire pressure sensors and deck lid closing issues. All the work was completed (new front tires, new tire sensors and cable issues on deck lid) in a timely manner and I was kept up to date on all repairs. Farmington Garage is now my go to auto repair facility. A shout out to Sarah and Mike for being so helpful. 👍

Comment: They text your estimate with all the pricing and labor costs and you have to go in and accept or decline the repair so it is nice if you do not want everything done. Very transparent and makes it convenient and quicker instead of playing phone tag. They even looked to find a cheaper part for my turbo solenoid on my Ford Escape.

Comment: I went to Farmington Garage because the splash guard for my engine was coming off and dragging on the ground. I called in the morning and they told me they could give it a look at 2:30. I showed up at that time and they greeted me and took a look.They came back and pulled it around with the splash guard fixed! The mechanic said there was some screws that likely vibrated out or came out due to snow. He said he just replaced the screws. They didn’t add in additional services or charge me for an hour of labor. They just said “Hey it was a quick and easy fix, happens with cars this time of year. Hope you come back when you need service in the future”. Much respect for doing business the right way and I will be back.

Comment: After visiting another auto shop for a tire repair they told me it would be the next day before they could repair the tire. Since I was close to the Farmington Garage I stopped in and explained that I needed a tire repaired. He took all my information, quoted me a price and had me roll the tire to the garage and in five minutes it was done. To my surprise Mitch let me know it was a easy fix and it was much less than quoted . I wouldn’t have known the difference so I felt good that I stopped in to a place that is honest and care about the customer. I will definitely be back for any repairs I might need down the road. Thank you.

Comment: This is my first time owning a car and they have made it so easy for me to understand what is happening to my car. They take the time to fully explain what is wrong or what they did to my car. I love that they do not assume that I know all the terminology and they are always willing to help.

Comment: I cannot say enough about how wonderful my experience with Farmington Garage was. I bought my car through CarMax, and this is a partnered garage so I picked them based off all the great reviews. Al was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING: friendly, kind, patient and helpful as I dealt with a bunch of NONSENSE surrounding my CarMax warranty (never use CarMax btw). He diagnosed the problem with my engine, explained it all to me, and kept my car for as long as I needed as I battled with CarMax. He even discouraged me from doing what they were telling me to do (authorize an engine teardown with no guarantee of coverage) so I wouldn’t be stuck with the fee. He went above and beyond trying to help me and I cannot thank him enough!!

Comment: I went there because I got a nail in my tire. The business is within walking distance from my home, and although they were very busy, Tony said he would take care of it , no problem, he just needed a few minutes. They plugged my tire, at no charge, within a few minutes. Thank you very much for the wonderful customer service!

Comment: During the stay-at-home lockdown, I went to the grocery store. When I left, my power steering failed. Fortunately, Farmington Garage was open as it’s an essential business. I brought it in Friday afternoon and the car was ready by Noon the next day. I mainly dealt with Tony, and a bit with another fellow but it I forgot His name. ☹️ Sorry. Both men were very polite and knowledgeable. This was my 2nd dealing with this Garage. After my 1st visit, I knew I could trust them re price and value. I highly recommend them.

Comment: I took my 2018 Jeep to Farmington Garage with the engine light on, I was charged $309 just for diagnostics! Upon further research I discovered the fair price for this service is $100 - $125 !Update: The shop responded appropriately to my concerns, demonstrating they valued my input and refunded me the overcharge.

Comment: Took my car in because it was making an odd rattling noise which I suspected might have been the heat shield. They looked at it right away and it was indeed the heat shield. They tightened it for me and when I asked for the charge, it was complimentary! While I dont expect free repairs the next I go there, I will definitely be going back. Nice, honest shop, not too mention a clean comfortable waiting area!

Comment: I have a 2007 Cadillac DTS and it has a slight oil leak that I could not get figured out for a while. I took my car to other shops and had no luck but once I got in contact with AL one of the service advisors at the Farmington Garage we got the the bottom of it. He and his team figured out what the problem was and had if fixed right the first time and I have not had a issue since. Along with that they noticed some other things that I didnt know was an issue replaced those parts also and everything was fixed in a timely manner, they even washed my car for me! Great service that I would recommend to anyone

The mechanics are constantly working on newer cars all the way to cars from the Baby Boomer era.

They are a very competent, professional, and friendy organization to work with. I am very glad I found them.

Comment: Went to the Farmington garage for the first time quite by accident. (Had a flat tire just outside their shop.) I was warmly welcomed and felt immediately at ease. Al and the rest of the crew went well and above the call of duty dealing with my insurance company making numerous phone calls so I would not have an unexpected out of pocket expense as the tire was under warrenty. Rarely have I ever experienced this level of customer service. I would not hesitate to recommend their services. Five star service without a doubt!

Comment: Brought my 2012 Buick Enclave with 105,000 miles into Farmington Garage for the first time. Worked with Tony. Shared with him I thought I had issues with brakes and power steering. Sold me on Approximately $100 to inspect the entire car And let me know if there would be any other issues I should be prepared for down the road. Would up replacing front brake pads and rotors and power steering pump in the timing and at the cost he had estimated. He provided me with a summary of other items which I will likely do myself like air filter and plugs. It was Totally unexpected and nice that they washed the car and put armor all on the tires Think they also vacuumed the floor in the front. Received a follow up call from Bethany to insure everything was good. I’d bring my car back next time it needs repair.

Comment: I decided to do some elective maintenance on my Ford Escape in preparation for two big upcoming trips. I wanted ease of mind to make sure everything was in good shape and ready to go! I believe the pricing was fair to do an all around 360 check. I was given a loaner car which I totally didn’t expect and was nice since I didn’t want to sit in the waiting room for hours when I live down the street! I worked with Al the majority of the time and he was very nice and professional! When I was waiting for my diagnosis, I was sent a text message with my results and either had to decline or approve services/parts...which I thought was very modern and cool! When I was called to pickup my Escape they noticed one more thing and took care of that and explained (and waived!!) an alignment fee! I will definitely be back and it really helps that they are down the street! Side note: when I was waiting in the waiting room with my son, he was happy there were snacks!! Haha and I was happy it’s clean, modern and not smoky or trashy like most car places. Thank you Farmington Garage!!

Comment: Updating my first review from 2 years ago. Still 5-stars. Just had Farmington Garage service my car during the COVID-19 lockdown. Loved how I was able to call for appointment, drive in, leave keys in car and leave. When car was ready (within hours), they called, I opted to pay over phone then walked uptown to pick up car - with key and receipt already inside. Seamless, safe and reliable. . Of course, FG has been my trusted auto service place for years due to their typical great service, knowledgeable expertise, courteous treatment and reasonable pricing. Still highly recommended.

Ive been told by friends and family about this place and Im glad they did so. I love the 3 year 36k mile warranty on both parts & labor. The guys up front are honest and are car people themselves! I never feel like they pressure me into something I dont need & if I need a repair badly they walk me into the back (wow- super clean) to show me what is broken and why it needs to be repaired. I highly recommend The Farmington Garage.Go in yourself and give them a try, you wont regret it!

Comment: I have an older car, 2010 Edge, maybe 2011, it has been good to me, low maintenance, minimal issues. I was overdue for an oil change and my engine was acting funny...I was hoping it was because I needed an oil wasnt. The short version of this story is I stopped here because it is where my husband had my oil changed the last time. They were nice, evaluated my issue, and the price they came back with was well not expected, but in reading their reviews and getting a quote from the dealership, they were honest in their assessment and competitively priced and my shock of having to spend that much on my older car was really the issue. The shop had a great atmosphere and changed my oil on a whim with no appointment and did not pressure me at all when they provided the quote regarding the work needed on my car. The dealership actually required two trips because they forgot a part so I think I might be checking in with The Farmington Garage next time I need some work on my Edge!

Comment: I cannot express how much I loved my experience at the Farmington Garage. And that’s saying a lot considering I’m a stay at home mom and it’s a mechanic shop. Making time to get my brakes done was the last thing I wanted to do. I had no idea that they offered a Lyft service so I could be driven back home while my car was worked on. It was absolutely amazing to be able to do that while my kids were in school and still be home getting stuff done while my car was being worked on. My husband would take our cars to the dealership because we just didn’t know where else to go but it was always such a hassle and takes much longer to get services done. I’m so glad a friend told me about this local mechanic shop. Thank you Farmington Garage for the great experience!My car was done on time and communication was excellent with the shop throughout the process. Definitely worth checking out for your car service needs.

It’s always done right, and most importantly, they don’t try to up sell me or convince me something needs to be done that really doesn’t. They’re honest, trustworthy, and genuinely care about quality customer service. I highly recommend them.

Comment: I walked in without any sort of appointment and were helped immediately. They had the part I needed on hand, so they were able to take my car in right away. They estimated that the fix would take approx. an hour, so I walked around downtown Farmington, enjoying the farmer’s market, and they called about 50 minutes later saying it was all done. The final cost was ~$15 more than the estimate, but it was done so quickly and everyone was so friendly that I didn’t care at all. The car’s running great, and they seemed to fix the problem for me! I would highly recommend!

Comment: Great service! My family and I drove to Farmington for the Founders parade and ran over a large nail while en route. We made it to the parking lot of a local business in Farmington as a tire was getting very low on air. I walked over to Farmington Garage and spoke with Patrick. Patrick was very polite and professional. Farmington Garage came and got our car, and repaired the tire while my family enjoyed the parade. Patrick then came and found me down the street, returned my key and said we were all set, not charging us for the repair. Thanks again to Patrick and his team!

Comment: My first time at this shop, do not normally go-accustomed to doing my own work. However, Nick was positive, inviting and well informed... Explained services and needs very clearly. Vibe while waiting for service was good, also was able to walk to several conveniences in Farmington during visit. Fair/reasonable price. Be back!

Comment: As an update to my prior review I have changed my rating to 4 stars:1 star previously for having a nice facility/lobby area and courteous service advisors1 additional star for caring enough about their reputation to read reviews and resolve outstanding issues1 additional star for caring about their customer satisfaction enough to contact their customers and work towards a satisfactory resolution1 additional star for quality workNo 5th star because it took posting a bad review before a resolution was resolved when it could have easily been resolved beforehand. Yes, my AC problems where created elsewhere and, yes, I was unhappy with a previous garage but I chose FG because of its good reviews and expected all problems to be resolved. So, yes, I felt I should not have had to visit the garage 2x and pay 2x for a problem that existed on the 1st visit. Nonetheless, manager Andy and I came to a satisfactory repair and resolution for both parties. Kudos to Andy for calling me and working with me. On that note I can honestly say I would recommend Farmington Garage and have no problem with choosing them for any future repairs on my vehicle.So my son moved to Farmington Hills and, because I couldnt fix the AC on my 2006 BMW X5 before he left TN, we selected Farmington Garage. I specifically mentioned that the fuse for the AC controls was blowing intermittently and, when the controls were functioning, the AC was not cooling. After diagnosis the problem was stated as a system leak but, obviously, troubleshooting went no further. Also, a safety inspection was performed on the vehicle, not at my request but as a service to the customer. Of course I consider this a scam to generate more work for the garage since, IMO, any problem can be found on a used vehicle. Recommendations made to replace rear ball joints and, since well be in the same area and to save labor costs, also recommend replacing front ball joints and CV axles at a total cost > $3000. No thank you. Parts online < $600, Ill do it myself WHEN its needed. AC repairs made at a cost of ~$350. Wow! But... it comes with a 3 yr warranty! Like thats worth it... A few days later, my son tries the AC FOR THE 1ST TIME and the fuse blows immediately. Because he had just started a new job it took him a few weeks to return the vehicle to FG. After diagnosis, FG found a shorted wire pinched at the compressor and wanted an additional $448.48. Seriously? Not covered by the warranty though I specifically mentioned this problem the 1st time? 2 different issues and controls were working the entire time it was here is their stance. Really? Guess that wire pinched itself on the compressor once the car left the garage because the AC didnt work after that. Maybe better troubleshooting would have helped instead of performing the safety inspection.?!!! Again, no thank you on the repairs though I had to pay $120 for the diagnosis. MY RECOMMENDATION IS TO FIND A DIFFERENT GARAGE! One that actually listens to the customer, troubleshoots the actual problem, and is not in the business of conducting safety inspections to drum up additional work.

Comment: Ben and Patrick, service advisors were so professional and friendly. I was able to book Appt for brake inspection and then repair, very quickly. Their prices beat another estimate I had, without sacrificing quality, and I received better all around service. I really appreciated being able to apply for and receive financing through their website!

Comment: The service staff here is better than at the Audi dealership!Very helpful, they know what they are talking about, and will even let you look at your own car up in the air, showing you what is wrong/broken.Forget the overpriced and under appreciative dealerships, go local, and go to Farmington Garage.

Comment: There is absolutely no comparison to the level of service that you will receive at the Farmington Garage. They are so knowledgeable, professional and literally a pleasure to do business with. Having an unexpected and immediate repair, I called and Andy answered. I told him what’s up and what I thought would resolve the issue, he knew exactly the alternative fix I was speaking of, checked his pricing, along mine and their warranty (good at any BOSCH in the US) and it was less expensive to have him handle, I gave my card, and instead of needing a tow truck, I was so relieved and energized, I fiddled around with my ignition and got it to the shop. Both Andy, and Ben sent me updates on my car through detailed emails, and when my car was done Ben called knowing I was out of town, for what I had told him was “the most important day of this year for me” and the first thing he asked was, “how did it go?”. I shared the emails, and voice messages with family, because it truly stunned me how professional and kind they are. Every step, progressed through excellent communication and unparalleled customer service and for the first time, I was able to take care of my Rover (that I love so much!) without having to deal with nonsense and stress and that means everything. I feel that every shop could learn so much from these guys, people value their cars and want to maintain them, and when we do, we want to feel good about it. You guys are the best!

Comment: I would recommend the Farmington Garage with the highest praise for their honesty, thoroughness, and follow-up. My car was seen by two other facilities, one of which was the dealership where I bought the car. It was left with too much anti freeze in the system. We have not driven the car in about a month, and with the sub-zero weather, I was concerned that it might have frozen. When I started the car, it left a trail of anti-freeze. The problem could also have been from a broken line.Ben, the manager had his team pressure test the system and after confirming no problem, ran it for several hours and test drove it before giving it an ok. They also found several other problem areas that they pointed out, one in particular was where a previous repair on the clutch had left the bolts for the bell housing loose. They asked if I wanted them tightened, which of course I did.With all of this stuff going on, they could have told me anything, but they were honest and accurate. The final price was reasonable, and at least now I can start off on a long trip to visit an old friend with peace of mind knowing that I have found an honest garage operation in my home town.

Comment: Great customer service, very friendly staff. The place is very welcoming and has great interior design. The loaner vehicle they provided was also a big reason I chose this place to have my car worked on.I wouldn’t recommend it to someone looking for a place that will work with you on a price though. Very pricey. One of the only places I’ve been to that does not apply the diagnosing fee to the repair costs. They also told me that my repair was simple and easy to get to, yet the labor costs on my receipt say $357. Is that really necessary? Such robbery lolI appreciate their kind and helpful staff regardless. Thank you.

Comment: Ben and his team have great customer service! One of their part time mechanics, Derek, orchestrated replacing my tires on my Taurus SHO. I was very pleased that they had my tires in stock and they had them replaced and the car was in my driveway waiting for me to get home from work. Now thats service! I would recommend them to friends/ family and I will be back for any future needs on my car.

Clean, friendly and fast - besides near walkable downtown Farmington. Will definitely go back when the next need arises.

Comment: They were able to get me in quickly for an oil change and to check a tire for an air leak. Both completed in a timely matter. They did however leave off my tires air cap and they cracked a plug in my oil resulting in a leak. I took it back and they repaired it for free. Very nice and helpful staff.

Comment: As usual Ben took good care of me and also noted some maintenance items to consider doing. I have been going to this physical location now for 30 years. So Farmington Garage is the third generation to have a service center here. I miss Frank and his team. But Ben and the new team have become my new family. They have done work on our Jeeps and my wifes SAAB 9-3 convertible. Tell them Larry Fee recommended them and you get a $30 discount and I get one too. The family helping family mind set.

Comment: Ben and TJ went out of their way to make sure I was taken care of, and all I needed was a pre-purchase inspection for $99. I suspected the first vehicle I brought in smelled like smoke, and they quickly determined it was owned by a smoker and even showed me the signs to look for. They didnt charge me when I decided I didnt want that vehicle, but I was happy to bring back another one I had put an offer on. One hour and $99 later, I had a complete rundown of the vehicles condition, which ended up saving me $500 off the agreed price. Would definitely recommend and I plan on doing business with them again in the future.

Comment: I suddenly came upon an emergency with my 2009 Tiguan VW. My regular mechanics were booked into the late month and Farmington Garage invited me to drop off my car right away.The next day I got the bad news that the timing chain had gone... but the car was worth the surgery.TJ at Farmington Garage was exceptional in handling my car. The approach to service and attention to getting my car on the road again quickly was remarkable.The garage is conveniently located in downtown Farmington - across the street from my Crossfit training gym. They were kind enough to drop by - pick up my car or drop off keys to their loaner car so I wouldn’t have to stop my workout! - such hometown service you don’t get these days.Apart from the initial diagnostic fee that most garages don’t charge, Farmington Garage’s workmanship is spot on. I had the work examined by my usual car mechanics and they verified they had done a really good job! They were impressed!Thank you TJ for seeing the job thru. Now for the bill. :)

Comment: First off let me start by saying thank you to the Farmington garage team. I know I came in with no notice for a oil change half an hour before you closed and you were wrapping up for the day, but you still took the time to make sure my mother car was serviced and had a complete inspection. This type of treatment is rare now and I respect that, not only that but you gave a military discount which was unexpected as well...this garage is now my first go to place. Amazing service and great prices.

Comment: This was my first time at Farmington Garage and I dealt with John and Ben. Both were very knowledgeable and polite. They were not pushy about anything that had to get done to my car however made some very good recommendations and allowed me to decide what I wanted to do. The facility is clean and bright and I will be back to have them complete the final work on my car. I would highly recommend this garage!

Comment: Thank you for offering completely free of charge oil changes to first responders! What a great way to show appreciation to those that tirelessly care for others. Last year this service was offered one day only, this year an entire week, it can’t be beat and I’ve yet to see another local shop do this. The staff is far above the rest and this is the nicest and friendliest place I’ve ever been. Everyone is very knowledgeable, friendly, and very honest. I couldn’t ask for more in a shop. I won’t be going anywhere else. Thank you again! - A very happy and satisfied paramedic

Comment: I loved this garage for my oil change. They are clean and have everything you might need to hang out there for a while, if needed. They talked me into a full check-up, which I barely had time for. (I was on my lunch break.) But then they strongly recommended I get my headlight changed out, which ended up needing an extra part. They had to order this part and said it wont take long. Even after the extra check-up I planned on getting back to work at 1:30, but didnt get back to work until 3:30!

Comment: I first went to the Farmington garage when I was driving to work one day and the power steering went out on my car. I was able to get the car to their parking lot. They not only diagnosed the problem but they checked with Ford and found out that the car had an extended recall. They did all of the talking with Ford they got the car to and from the Ford dealer and gave me a loaner to drive at a small fee. I ended up in the hospital and was unable to return the loaner car right away. When my daughter did return the loaner car, explained to them that I was in the hospital and I would get my car when I got out of the hospital. They let her take my car home and trusted me to go back and pay for it when I was out of the hospital and feeling better. Andy the owner restored all of my daughters faith in humanity in that one second. I have told my family friends and anybody I know how awesome they are at the Farmington garage. And I will be going back

Comment: I have been looking for a trusted shop for awhile, ever since Suburban Chrysler/Jeep in Farmington Hills changed location and their staff. My mother came across Farmington Garage and recommended them to me. I have a 2016 Challenger Scat Pack with a Supercharger. And for Chrysler to even look at it I have to work around their schedule when the hellcat or demon techs are in. But these gentlemen and ladies are certified and able to look at my Vehicle anytime I need them too. They were fast and their rates shocked me, I dont believe anyone in the Farmington and Novi area can beat their prices and quality of services. They also gave me a military discount which really meant a lot to me.If you have a high performance car that needs any normal maintenance that you can not do yourself or even if you just have a car that needs routine maintenance and need it to be done right the first time in a timely fashion and at prices that are amazing contact these people. And for my other service men and women you really need to check these guys out.P.S. Also cleanest garage Ive ever been too!!!!!

Comment: James was great with the description of what needed to be serviced. In 5 days, I returned to have my van serviced and Ben was accommodating about giving me ride to my home. Few minutes later, he called to let me know that wrong part was ordered, he would gladly collect me so I dont waste precious time. Ben was very apologetic. If I didnt receive the great introduction from James, I would be worried, but with Bens apologies it was no chance that I can trust another mechanic like Farmington Garage mechanics. The 36 reviews on Google were priceless. Thank you very much.

What was really great was that the staff at Farmington Garage detailed the van as well (3 kids, 6 and it was a mess). Well, whatever they did, my children were asking why we got a new van!!! Great job! We will definitely be back.

Comment: Had them work on both of my vehicles now this past week and I was very impressed with everything. The owner and staff were very friendly and knowledgable, and after my two visits I really trust them with my vehicles. You will definitely get great work done at fair prices here, and you dont have to worry about a shop trying to screw you over. They pointed out to me a few areas that will eventually need work, but didnt need it now, which is how I gained my faith in this shop. The place is also completely re-modelled and a great place to relax while you wait for the work, which includes free snacks/drinks while you wait. Keep up the good work, and will definitely be back!
