Complicated, somewhat expensive repair/restoration on notoriously touchy vintage Mercedes sports car handled in a timely manner. Great communication and end result. Thanks.

Never been to Pete’s before although I’d heard good things about them since the 70’s. I came in a closing time with what I thought was an urgent problem. I had been to the dealer who wouldn’t look at the car even to give me an estimate. They told me to come back the next day at which time they would look at the car only if I had them do the work. They were dismissive and didn’t show much concern for my situation.Nothing like that at Pete’s! It was near closing time but they showed concern for my problem, looked at the car, gave me a picture of the damage and an estimate. They wouldn’t let me drive it and the owner took me home. I really appreciated that since I’m a widow and didn’t know who to call on short notice and since I knew I’d be Ubering all the next day.There was no “We’re all booked up”. They got it in the next day, I had it back on time and the car drives great.I will now be coming here for all my service needs. I’d been going to the dealer out of habit since all my previous cars were leased. Not any more!If you have a foreign car, I’d definitely recommend Pete’s Service Center.

They did a great job on my truck. And overall it was good experience. My only issue with them was that my truck was not done when promised.

I have used Pete’s twice now, and have had great experiences both times. The first of which I brought my Saab in for them to replace my headlight after we lost the clip for it while trying to replace the light at home. They were creative in fixing the problem and actually used a Mercedes clip as they’re apparently almost identical. They also replaced my windshield wiper fluid nozzles and diagnosed other issues with my vehicle. They use an online system to send you information about your repair and will even post pictures and notes to help you better understand the work they’re doing before you opt-in or out of the job.The second time I brought my car in for a very last minute oil change and they actually stayed late to finish it up so I could leave for a trip the following morning. Josh is really great to work with, always greets me by name and is pleasant to talk to whenever I stop by the shop. It sometimes takes a little while to get a call back from the shop, but in my experience they stick to their promised times even if they haven’t called with an update (and sometimes even finish ahead of schedule!).

When I first walked in they were totally booked, but Mike said he'd work my 1979 TVR in asap. He contacted me with an opening & they resolved all issues within a few days: carburetor issues, tuning, rear brakes & chassis lube. They test drove the car to see that the engine was running & idling well. They are very knowledgeable & the price was reasonable.

Hi,I wanted to share the wonderful experience I had working with Eric and Trevor. I had some extensive work completed on my 2015 Mercedes, and let me tell you, Eric walked me through each and every step of the way. He kept me informed of what was taking place with my car and explained things to me a couple of times(thanks for your patience:). Eric kept me updated each time I needed to know additional information as he received it. They were also able to work with me to find additional funding for my car. I will NEVER take my car anywhere else. You all have a customer for life! I have already told my family and friends about you guys! What a great experience! I picked my car up today, and it runs like a brand new car! I’m so excited! Again, I can’t thank you enough!New update 5/6/2021- The previous review was sent over several months ago, but some reason it won't allow me to complete a new review-Again, Petes' is the best!! Always professional and on time with my car. I had a wheel alignment completed yesterday, and again- Job well done! I won't take my car anywhere else 🙂 Brett is the BEST!!

All interactions with Brett greatly appreciated but disappointing that one wheel was completely covered in orange brake dust. (After 4 new brake pads and rotors applied). All other 3 wheels were fine. Took me one hour to clean off the one wheel. Other than that, I would recommend Pete’s.

Can't say enough positive things about Pete's. Besides taking my Maserati there for outstanding service, recently an issue arose while I was getting new tires installed elsewhere. They could not figure out how to remove one of the bolts and said I had to take it to the dealership. I called Pete's and spoke with Brett and he said bring it over to take a quick look. I did and within a few minutes, he and one of his service team identified the issue. No charge and with such professionalism and friendliness. I highly, highly recommend Pete's and all the outstanding professionals that work there!

My daughter attends Butler University. Her Volvo had a serious coolant leak, and I'm 200 miles away. I called Pete's because they specialize in Europeans and only 10 away from the University. Good thing we have AAA because we had to tow the Volvo. The coolant reservoir was cracked. Pete's order the part, had it fix in no time. Great service, Very Personable, Great communications. THANKS PETE'S!

I am always worried about going to a new service center because I feel like a lot of the employees are trying to upsell me and pressure me into getting services I don’t need. This was not the case at Pete’s! They are all honest and don’t charge an arm and a leg like the Mercedes dealerships do. Their customer service is top notch as well! I will definitely be back. Thank you!

I was contemplating getting an old Citroën 2CV as a special-occasion / conversation-piece car, but, not being mechanically inclined, wouldn't consider actually buying one unless I could find someone who could service it first. A neighbor who knows Eric told me about him and Pete's, so I went to check it out. Eric gave me a tour of the place, showing me what all they do, plus I could see the cars that were there, and that gave me the confidence to go ahead and get one. I've already had it there a couple of times and was so satisfied by what they did (and what they charged for it) that I'm going to start bringing my main car there for service, too (rather than to the dealer I've been going to--especially since it's also an auto-enthusiast's car--exactly what Pete's specializes in).

Communication was fantastic! They send out very detailed estimates with pictures and detailed breakdown of what’s needed. They also prioritized the issues, and mentioned some things should be saved for future maintenance. Wasn’t cheap, great service never is. Only thing that would’ve really made it exceptional is efforts made to vacuum or clean windows. I’ve had that with oil changes elsewhere and it’s a really nice touch.

I brought my daughters car here based on the good reviews. I spoke to Brett several times regarding her car, he was very communicative and informative. She had a major oil leak and power steering leak. They did an excellent job on her car as far as fixing those leaks. While it wasn't cheap, it was still worth it because she no longer has a leak. Right now we do have to take it back because it's making a noise that it wasn't before, actually a very loud noise that was not there before. I spoke to Brett again about it, and he said to bring it so they can look it. I would definitely bring her car and/or any other foreign (which I plan on purchasing one soon). I would highly recommend this place for their foreign cars!

Used Pete’s Service Center for a Pre Purchase Inspection of a Porsche from a local independent shop. Inspection was one time and comprehensive, with clear pictures and notes. Was very useful in both seller and buyer having a basis for negotiation on repairs.

There is no other place I would take my Mercedes Benz than to Pete’s. The mechanics are World Class and treat you with respect and professionalism. The owner, Eric, kept me informed and made certain I had a loaner vehicle since I also had body work done after the mechanical work. Great guys who were always very positive and made the experience worth every penny.

So grateful to have found this Service Center so I don't have to take my MINI to the dealer and deal with their run-around/prices/and sales pitches. Eric treats my vehicle as if it were his own, meets the time estimates he sets, and the prices are reasonable and fair. Highly recommend.

My car had been sitting for several weeks and when I went to drive it, it was dead. I called Pete’s Service Center and asked if they would be willing to stop by our house to jump the car (we live in the neighborhood) and he said he would be here in a short while. He arrived within 10 minutes and my car was running shortly thereafter! I can’t thank him enough for the speedy response and would highly recommend them.
