Trust and service are the best from Downtown Garage.
I find their work and opinions to be excellent, and still a great cost! Fix it right, and back up the repairs - no questions. I trust them to fix what needs to be fixed, but also review issues on all by vehicles old and new .
I work for General Motors, a fine repair shop too! However, I trust Downtown Garage to stay focused on needed repairs. This time I needed to go on a business trip. I left the keys, they did repairs, and delivered my car to my home. Used email and phone to settle the account. It is great to have someone to trust even when you are half way around the world. That's trust and service.

Wow ~ what a great experience! Pulled in to have a taillight fixed, and I was in and out in 10 minutes. Oh...and they also didn't charge me! Fast & friendly service. I would recommend Downtown Garage and I would most likely go back!

Downtown Garage in Milford recently worked on my daughter's car and we couldn't have been more pleased. Karen and her staff explain what needs to be done and how much it will cost. If it doesn't need to be done that day or can wait, they'll tell you that. In short, they are honest and not trying to drive up your bill. If you're looking for a great auto repair shop where the people are up front and honest, try Downtown Garage. We're glad we did!

Just a short note to thank you for the awesome job you did on my exhaust system. It has never sounded so good. And even better you guys came in under the estimate. Thanks again, Greg

I am happy to say that I was very pleased with the overall professionalism exhibited by the people at the Downtown Garage in handling the very challenging repairs my car required. I grew up in the auto repair business, have restored many cars and whenever possible, do all of my own auto repairs. However, my 88’ Mercury Cougar had an exhaust leak at the manifold and required a hoist, torch, arc welding equipment and fabrication skills to do the repair. I had the skills but none of the equipment.
I was very relieved to find mechanics that still had the skills and patience necessary to repair rather than replace damaged parts, fabricate parts that are otherwise not available or otherwise use talent and experience to the customer’s advantage as their first choice approach to the repair. It was also very nice to find that my thoughts on how to address the repairs were not only appreciated but were performed at a level that I would be hard pressed to match myself.
I would recommend the team at the Downtown Garage to anyone for any type of vehicle.

I was having a terrible time getting my air conditioning fixed on my 2010 Ford Escape. The dealership kept telling me it was fixed and it never worked. I took it to the Downtown Garage in Milford, MI and they diagnosed the problem first time dancing circles around the Ford dealership mechanics. Kudos to you guys, you will always be my "GO-TO" mechanics!

The best garage in Milford. I have dealt with them on a few occasions with both my vehicles and always had a good experience. John & Bob are very good at explaining the problem and what they have to do to fix it. Karen was very helpful on coordinating my vehicle pick up and getting me squeezed in to look at my muffler before a weekend trip. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Recently passing through Milford, a headlight went out, and needed it replaced before heading on further into snowy weather. I bought a part locally, but it was too cold to do the work myself outdoors. I stopped by Downtown Garage, which was extremely busy that Mon. a.m. But, they worked my car in within about 15 minutes, installed the new bulb, but then declined the charge me, since it took them less than 15 min. All the while, they were very pleasant! I will return for any car repair needs when in Milford area. Thanks!

Never in my life have I experienced such amazing service. Brought my Impala in at 4:00 on a Friday, and had it diagnosed and repaired an hour and a half later. And the repair cost was less than that I got over the phone. Best shop around. Very honest people. If I could reccomend this shop to someone I definitely would. You wont be disappointed.

Pleased with the service at downtown garage. Staff was very knowledgeable and treat your car as there own. Were able to accommodate my vehicles repair on a last minute service in a short time frame. Thanks again to the owner and staff.

Recently rebranded as Downtown Automotive. Easily the best auto shop experience and possibly one of the best overall customer experiences I've ever had. I thought I had a broken wheel stud, a rather small job, on my girlfriend's car. Needed it fixed over my lunch break as she was heading to Chicago over the weekend. The young Tech John had it on the hoist and already ordered a replacement part (turned out to be a stripped wheel nut) by the time I ate my lunch. They sent me away with a smile and didn't even bother to charge me for the part or labor. I'd highly recommend this shop.

They spent an entire
day working on my car, and the fix for my issue turned out to be
something so technical and involved that the cost was prohibitive. They
did a simple fix and didn't charge me a dime. I'll take my car to them
