This place is such a rip off. I went here a couple months ago because my car needed knew brake pads. They come out and say I will need about $1600 of work. I talked the price down to $1200 just for the brakes and spent the last 3 months paying it off. Not to mention whoever worked on our car forgot to put on a hubcap and when I drove back to get it, they couldn't find it. They kindly offered to give us all new hubcaps which was great except that they are trash and are already damaged from the wear and tear of philly roads. We foolishly came back a little after for our inspections and all of a sudden they are saying we need all new tires.... I got new tires a year ago!!!! Don't give this place your money as they definitely do their best to take advantage of you. It's one thing after the other with them.

Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Value The mechanic I used for the past 6 years seems to have shutdown unexpectedly perhaps due to covid.

Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality Mike and his crew always go above and beyond. The service is top notch (contactless payment, cleaning your car, honest feedback), the communication is incredible (automated reports with details and photos). You won’t find a better mechanic in Philadelphia, period.

Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Value Very professional and reliable work. We have had our cars serviced at Schafer’s for many years and have never had a problem. Although we have moved out of the city, we continue to commute to Schafer’s because they are that good.

I went to Schafer’s for some exhaust work to pass the state inspection and it was the best decision I’ve ever made. We just moved here from Atlanta and had been to two other shops where we felt like we were being taken for all of our money. I went to Schafer and Mike hooked me up with the exhaust work and state inspection for a third of what the others were charging. He was super nice and went the extra mile to help us out. When you find a good mechanic you stick with them. We are a three car family and every one of them is going to Schafer for their maintenance and inspections. You won’t regret going here!

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Value I can not say enough about Schafer’s! We are a neighborhood family and live just a few blocks away. Every time I ever mention getting work done everyone always says, “you should check out Schafer’s! They do awesome work!” I don’t know why it took me 6 years to stop by the building we always talk about! (You know the one on Colombus Boulevard where it looks like a car drove through their building!) From the moment you walk in and talk to Cindy you instantly feel at home! They have open bay windows so you can see them working on your car! I loved that they are a one stop shop too! Our car was a nightmare to begin with. Not only is it a car no longer made, it seems that when the dealer closed down a bunch of misinformation was added to their system including the wrong type of rotors for the rear tires. Not only did Schafer’s try one, two, three but four rotors until they found the one that fit! Mike (the owner) was open and honest with me through the entire process which made me feel even better because most shops would just charge you more without telling you why! Schafer’s returned my car in cleaner condition then when they found it and I think that speaks volumes to their customer service. If you’re around it is ABSOLUTELY worth the drive to see them!! We will never go to another shop!!

It is easily the best experience I have had at a mechanic ever. If I lived closer, I live an hour away, Schafer would be my choice for all of my auto needs. I cannot recommend them enough. They are honest and have earned my complete trust.

The service was immediate, courteous and pleasant. The free vehicle inspection was a terrific bonus. The mechanic fixed my clogged leaking windshield dispenser at no charge. A special thankyou shoutout to Cindy. The team at Schafer's is terrific. Looking forward to making Schafer my go to Auto Maintenance resource.

I had such a wonderful experience! For a young woman who doesn’t understand anything about cars, they were able to give me an easy-to-understand synopsis of what my car needed without pushing any services on me. Plus I got a free car wash with my oil change! Highly recommend!

So I just needed to replace a headlight bulb. Usually my mechanic does it in 5 minutes and charges me $25. But today I decided to go to the closest to my home service expecting to save some time. I’ve been told that at first they will do free multi point inspection. Ok, but I weren’t told that it would take an hour. This inspection detected that I need to do wheel alignment, which I had done literally 1 week ago and replace a tag light. But it didn’t detected other problems which I was already aware of. So honestly I have doubts about the quality of this inspection. Estimate for replacement of 2 bulbs was 68.19. I know it’s stupid to complain about price when I agreed to that, but I just couldn’t say no after somebody spent an hour inspecting my car. In addition to charging me for 2 bulbs ($5.65+$15.00) I’ve been charged $4.79 for “job supplies”. I wonder what kind of supplies you need to replace a bulb, except the bulb itself. Thank you for a free car wash though. Also I want to mention that staff was very polite and friendly.

I have been taking my car to Schafer's for a couple years now because everyone at Schafer's always has the customer's best interest in mind. They give you a sense of confidence that your car is in good hands and they are doing what they feel is necessary without going overboard to make some extra money. All work is always done in a timely manner with reasonable prices. I would recommend Schafer's to anyone who is in need of auto services.

I recently called Schafer’s based solely on proximity and Google reviews for an emergency repair. Two minutes later (literally - I’d called from the Walmart parking lot), I was in the waiting room with my car being looked at. The staff was respectful, professional, and efficient. They offered rides to and from the shop, and texted me progress updates along with pictures of what needed to be fixed before calling to get the work authorized. The cost of the repair was fair and ended up being less than the original estimate, and the whole operation from panicked phone call to picking up the car was less than three hours. I will definitely be returning to Schafer’s for any auto needs.

This place is a rip off. Don't go here. Went here to get my car checked out for a rough start problem and they tried to get me to pay for a bunch of things that had nothing to do with the rough start. I had to press them to find out exactly what they wanted to charge me for and it turned out to be unnecessary things. For e.g., some kind of a performance boosting upgrade. I talked to an expert mechanic friend of mine afterwards and came to the conclusion that Schafer's preys on people that don't know much about cars.

While it might be a bit on the pricey side, they make up for it in service. They offer excellent communication, whether it is in the email/text reports they use to explain and visually depict diagnoses, or it's the calls and texts to communicate when you're car is being worked on and when it's ready for pickup. They will only work on what you ask them to, and while they will identify everything, they don't seem to correct unnecessary issues without your consent. They are easy to get to, and have enough room to hold multiple vehicles at a time without worries of parking. They even offer complimentary ubers to nearby locations for those who are dropping their cars off. Overall: Price = 3.5/5 Quality = 5/5 Service = 5/5

I called Schafer's Auto late in the afternoon ( close to closing time) and explained I was taking a trip to South Carolina and I had an issue with my vehicle. I explained that I had called various dealerships and none could help me until the following week. I believe I spoke with Mike. He told me to bring my car in and they would look at it. I arrived, and in a matter of moments, they took care of my issue, and then washed my car. Thank You Schafer's for making my car safe again to drive. I am on my way. You guys are awesome for helping me with my dilemma. Kudos. I wish you all well. Signed, Bobby B./ A.K.A / Perry Mason
