$64 Oil Change? – I was completely shocked after an oil change to find out that the charge for an 8 cylinder vehicle is over $60! I had a regular mechanic and he never charged more than $30. Autobahn does rotate the tires too but that amount is more than double the amount I normally pay. Plus - I get my tires rotated for free. If prices are going to be that high - they should be posted.
Great Service and Trustworthy! – I've been taking my car here for 3 years after getting overcharged for things that did not need to be done at other automobile service providers. I definitely feel comfortable when I go there and feel I can trust Robert to take care of my VW and only do what the absolutely necessary fixes are. He seems VERY knowledgeable compared to others I have dealt with at other shops.
free oil change quit complaining – i am automotive tech that knows robert and erin very well. i have used his knowledge many times. one thing i do know is that timing belts are replaced based on milage because the belts are usally covered and cannot be visually checked very easily. this lady with the FREE oil change was told her timing belt needed to be replace based on the milage of the car. this is very common when you have no history of the vehicle. if this had not been suggested and the timing belt had not been replaced and broke i am quite sure this lady would have blamed robert. robert cares alot about cars and the people who drive them.
Knowledgeable, efficient, super clean shop... they appear to enjoy their work enormously. – After a recommendation from a reputable Japanese auto shop, I took a used Volkswagen Passat I was interested in to Autobahn for a "pre-purchase inspection"... Robert test drove it and gave me a thumbs up but also told me about potential issues for this model. Armed with this information I wound up with a plum for a great price. After this I've been also taking my other car (also Volkswagen) for routine maintenance (something that my VW dealership didn't always get right).
A very pleasant experience, with a much shorter wait and less expensive than the dealerships.
DON"T GO THEY ARE A SCAM – After recieving a mailing offering a free oil change and taking my car in, the owner had his wife call me and tell me that my car needed a new timing belt immediately. I informed her that we would take it to our family mechanic and have hiim check it out. A few hours later I went to pick it up and the owner himself, Robert, warned me that he would not recommend driving my car because it looked like my timing belt had never been replaced and it needed to be done immediately. Little did they both know my timing belt had been replaced within the last 3,000 miles. A short time for something that is generally replaced every 60,000 miles or so. When called on it, Robert tried to retract the entire story.
Don't give them your business they are not trustworthy.
Superb service! – I was looking for a mechanic for my LS400 and came across Autobahn on Citysearch. I brought my car in for a full treatment--almost all of the fluids changed. His prices were extremely reasonable, especially when compared with the dealer. He is very knowledgeable about all the cars he services, as well as the products he puts in them. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the top-of-the-line synthetics he uses are the very same ones I was requesting.
superb service and follow up – Autobahn is one of the best kept secrets in Raleigh. I was having some problems with my Honda so I walked in one afternoon for an estimate. Robert knew exactly what the problem was and was able to fit me in the next day. His price was half what I was quoted by the dealer. I even got a follow up call 2 months later just to make sure the car was running smoothly. I'll definitely be back.
