"I own a 2007 Chevy Trail Blazer and in November for no apparent reason the Valve Spring broke on the top of the engine. I took the car to a repair shop and they did not have the ability to repair my car. They totally disassembled my car and then told me it would be too much work, not to mention they did not have the proper tools to do the repair in the first place... I called my sister and she said "" get your car from there now, and tow it to Maurice's shop"". I called Maurice' shop and was amazed that he w as open at 7:30 am. I explained to him what my issue was and he was professional , calm and said "" I can fix it"". I had been praying that I would find the right man to fix my engine and was so happy. Other shops I called earlier would not touch my car saying they had never done a repair like this because it was extensive work requiring removal of the the entire engine...Apparently, they were afraid of the work that would be involved. To make a long story short, Maurice Fixed my Valve Spring in one day, also he did not have to take the entire engine out of the car. I recommend Maurice'
s shop to anyone that has a engine problem and want to be treated fair and honestly."
Very nice guy, very nice shop, and clean! I will definitely be bringing my car back here if I have any future issues.
The car is functioning perfectly and running better than it ever has and I'm extremely grateful to have found my downtown repair shop. Definitely would highly recommend Maurice's to anyone I know in Detroit.
I just moved to Detroit a few months ago and didn't have a line on a good auto shop. Very grateful for these reviews and they are definitely accurate. I called Maurice about my dead battery and potentially broken hood latch mechanism. He quoted me a price and kept his word, which is a rare thing these days. He also didn't do any "extra" work that wasn't necessary, which you will find in places that try to hustle you.
"Maurice's is an amazing choice if you're in trouble with your car. I took in my van this afternoon and Maurice himself drove around with me to try to feel out the problem before I started service. I needed new tires, so he sent me down the street to a tire shop. He checked my brakes before that and explained to me exactly what I'd need to do with new tires, as it was my first time buying them.
Honest, friendly, sincere service. Awesome!!!"
From where I stand, this is a model business. Clean environment, friendly service, and a prompt turnaround made my experience here great. I drive a classic truck and sometimes a shop will tell me they can work on it, only to find out that either: 1.) They lied and nobody there knows what to do with it, or 2.) I have to wait for some special person to show up and do the work. Maurice took care of me, no problem, and I got my truck back by the end of the day.
Being new to town and, let's say, less that adept at auto mechanics, I panicked a little when my engine light came on and the need for a mechanic arose. After scouring online reviews for the best auto repair in Detroit, I ventured to Maurice's. Most mechanics and retailers in general would have tried to sell me as many products and services as possible to meet quota, not necessarily customer need. What happened, however, was quite the opposite. Maurice gave me a free diagnostic, informed me of my car's issues, and that they were in fact not urgent in nature. All he asked was that I return if this or any other issues arose again and, for this courtesy, I can honestly say I have and will continue to do so.
As a female who is at a general loss when it comes to cars, I certainly appreciate Maurice's honest and generous approach to his customers that focuses more on returned service than dollar signs.
Came in for a weird sound, did not even know where it was coming from. They looked at it right away and was very curtious. He was very detailed and only did what was absolutely needed. He did not over charge or put in any small taxes that add up or anything. I will deff. Come back here if anything else pops up.
A safe & friendly atmosphere with professionals hard at work. As a female, I was at ease as Maurice explained the problem, the solution and the cost. It was quite obvious to me from the start that this business takes pride in their work and I am now a fan for life. I will highly recommend this place of business!
