  • I was ready to give up on my X5 until I stumbled across Almost New Auto on the web, I wanted one last opinion before I got rid of it.The dealership was just going to start throwing new parts at it, and they gave me an estimate of $3800 (it's only worth 12k in trade). Thankfully Almost New Auto took a little more time to diagnose the problem and saved me 2/3 of the dealership est. I won't be going back to the dealership.

    After the parts were replaced the mechanic showed me the parts that had been removed and why they were failing. He'd even cleaned up the engine compartment!

    I'd give Almost New Auto 5/5 stars for the work carried out and for keeping me in my BMW. Better than dealership service. I recommend this mechanic to all of my colleagues and friends with imports. A guy you can trust not to rip you off and who takes the time to explain the problems to you. Excellent service for a fair cost.

  • I wouldn't take my BMW to anyone else. I drive nearly an hour and a half to have my car repaired the right way the first time. Honest, great mechanic. Willing to go the extra mile to make sure that your needs are addressed. I would recommend Rob to anyone looking for quality work.

  • After years of doing our own car repairs on BMWs, we know what is involved and also know that Robert is the best mechanic we have ever encountered. Robert's work is superior - - our vehicles (and he has worked on 3 of them for us) have never run better! Just as important as his mechanical skills is the fact that Robert is very honest and ethical. Robert performs his work on time and for the amount he quotes; there is no subterfuge or dishonesty. We were very fortunate when another local businessman/friend referred us to Robert and Almost New Auto. Now we are very pleased to call him friend and to refer him to anyone we meet. All of us depend on our vehicles to get us around and take care of us. There is nothing more frustrating when our vehicles have problems or break down altogether. We can't even begin to tell you how comforting it is to know someone like Robert who is able to take care of our vehicles and put us safely back on the road. What a Blessing! We ap preciate Robert Palmiter and Almost New Auto for providing superlative service and support!!

    Honest, fair, thorough, high quality service. Extremely detailed knowledge of Mercedes Benz vehicles.

    The response time to my initial contact was almost immediate (after calling the shop and being directed to email- which proved to be an excellent mechanism).

    I have been nothing but impressed by the knowledge and skill of Robert and his team at Almost New Auto. He is thorough in his documentation and precise with his work. I am recommending them to any MB owner, as well as anyone looking for a reliable vehicle repair technician. Highest recommendation!

    A pleasure to find a real M-B mechanic! Rob has excellent trouble shooting skills, which are essential on older M-Bs which are prone to electrical issues as they age. My M-B was shutting down after 30 minutes of driving and he traced it to a bad crankshaft sensor. He took care of some other minor problems while he had the car. And washed it free of charge!

    Highly recommend Almost New Auto!
