Burt and his staff always go above and beyond. They explain every repair detail to you. They are friendly, courteous and do excellent work for a reasonable price. I have to say I was also impressed with their clean and comfortable "waiting area". I highly recommend Auto Specialties of Lake Norman to anyone and everyone!
This morning, I drove 20 minutes past 4-5 auto shops to come to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman because I read such positive reviews. I have to tell you this was the best decision! The past 3 weeks I was having to jump start my car multiple times a day, and believed it was battery. I got a new battery installed and still happening, so I thought it must be alternator. I arrived at Auto Specialties for 1st time and they QUICKLY diagnosed that it was ONLY a bolt missing from the battery connection. Thus he didn't charge me anything -- the trust and honesty of the owner was beyond impressive and earned my business for life!
I was treated with great customer service and was contacted promptly after leaving my vehicle to be looked over. I received a phone call and was given information on exactly how and when they would be able to get my car back in working order. I was given an extremely fair price and I was surprised by how quickly I could expect to have my car back. I have been in the Charlotte area for a little over a year and had still not found a reliable mechanic - I think I have found that in Auto Specialties of Lake Norman. Their customer service goes above what I have come to expect for my auto services.
My daughter lives in Charlotte and had some issues with her car. After going to a dealership, they gave her an estimate for repairs. We wanted a second opinion, and my nephew gave us Auto Specialties info. We called and spoke to Bert. My daughter took her car and we had it back in two days after they replaced valve cover gaskets and the ABS modulator for the brakes. Bert is very nice and honest, and his rates beat the dealership prices. We were amazed to get the car back so quickly, and they have earned our business for our daughter's car, who lives 2 1/2 hours away from us. They are wonderful!!
I have been using this shop for a few months now and this is become my #1 go to place for repairs. They are professional, do what is right to fix your car. Price quotes are accurate. Most of all they are very honest and take time to show you what is wrong and fix it right the first time.
I did my BMW 328i tune-up here, and I can say: This place is friendly, trustworthy and affordable!
This has been the best repair experience I have had in years. They are friendly, have fair prices, quality work, and timely. Called they took in in immediately, had done in 3 hours. Will be going back.
Great friendly staff. Fixed the brakes on our van and now we can have that safe driving feeling again. Great prices and honest people. We will be a repeat customer!
The guys at Auto Specialties of Lake Norman have always treated me fairly and do a great job. They will give you an honest quote and do it correctly. I recommend them to anyone!
Bert and his team at Auto Specialties are fabulous. They are always prompt to respond to calls, courteous, and go out of their way to help. But most of all, I trust their opinion and the wonderful service they provide. I feel fortunate to have found them and I recommend them to anyone who is looking for car service.
I recently moved to the Charlotte area about a month ago. I experienced a problem with my car. Being new to the area I had no information on a repair facility. I called the dealer and they quoted an outrageous price to repair my car. I call Auto Specialties of Lake Norman and spoke with Bert. He was very professional and understanding and most helpful. I had my car towed to the location and in less than 5 hours he called to advise that my car was ready. Great service!
This shop is great - they do solid work and stand firmly behind everything they do. I have had a couple of major problems with my 2007 BMW 335i, and Bert and the team have gotten my car back on the road each time. They are more than fair with their charges and are great to work with. I feel so fortunate that a friend referred me to them!
Burt was great in being patient with us in dealing with my son's car, which blew the engine. He was gracious enough to diagnose it and not charge a storage fee while we made arrangements to have it towed and removed from his lot. Thank you!!
Thanks Bert for excellent customer service! I will recommend to all of my friends and be back for sure!!
Exceptional service! Stood by price even though job parts costed more than the original quote. Offer big dealer professionalism in a small shop environment with straight forward pricing.
We found Bert's shop while looking at reviews online and tried him out. We were very happy with the work that they did on my wife's 2003 BMW and have been back 3 more times and have saved hundreds of dollars with him as opposed to the BMW dealer. His work is great and has a great personality. My wife and I will continue to have them do our work. Bert is a great person.
Let's hear it for small shops! These guys are expert mechanics, they're honest, and they aren't interested in pressing you for work your vehicle doesn't need. They know that their phenomenal service will earn your trust and repeat business. I'm moving out of Huntersville for a new job in South Charlotte, but by God I'm going to drive to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman whenever I need a mechanic; I'm sold for life.
Top rate service every time. Bert has been servicing my vehicles for years and I wouldn't go anywhere else!
Burt and the rest of the guys were great. My oil pressure switch on my jeep was broke and he only charged me 320 for the all fix. He even fixed a hose for me for free. One place was gonna charge me 900 for the fix. These guys are honest and do great work. I would recommend this place to everyone.
Was looking for a place close to home for an inspection. Drove by and found Auto Specialties this morning. They got me right in and took care of it! Great customer service, no wait time, super easy and fast. Thanks for taking care of me!!
Best locally owned shop around, Bert and his team do a wonderful job of getting in and fixed and on your way again. i will continue to make the drive from China Grove to Huntersville for my automotive needs. I highly recommend you give them a try
Performed complete brake service on my Dodge truck. Part I requested to have replaced,I was told no need to spend the extra money, unless I just wanted the item replace. Great value and quality work.
The guys here are absolutely awesome. They always make sure your Vehicle and family are safe. Top notch. It's the only place I will go for our vehicles.
Outstanding work and completed in a very timely manner. Fixed my van prior to making a 1400 mile round trip. Very pleased! I highly recommend Bert and the guys to everyone I know needing vehicle maintenance and repair.
Bert is absolutely amazing and he always quickly resolves my automotive problems. I have taken my Infiniti to Bert several times and he quickly repairs my car at a fraction of the price the dealer is asking. I wouldn't take my baby to anyone else in NC. Thanks to the team at Auto Specialties of LN for looking out for my car and my pocket book. You guys are so awesome!!!!
Always a pleasure doing business with Auto Specialities of Lake Norman. Bert goes above & beyond for me and my family. He explains every detail of his repair(s). His customer service is superb! All too often people complain in their reviews. I choose to leave positive reviews especially when I know someone is working hard to make a decent living & doing the best they can every day! Kudos to Bert & his team. Keep up the good work. I HIGHLY recommend these guys to everyone.
According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
