I just want to say a word about Joe and all the people at Sigismondis. I took my 2011 Hyundai there to be serviced recently and I was very pleased with my experience. The staff was really nice and accommodating and the shop is very nice and welcoming, not like most dirty repair shops. They are certainly on top of their game and they have a repeat customer out of me. \r more

I have a Volvo and the only place that I normally would take my car to, even for oil changes, was the dealership because I know these cars are really different to work on than domestic cars. I had heard from a friend that Sigismondi's Foreign car service was a good place. I decided to give them a try and they were great. Now I have a new and dependable option for my Volvo.\r more

Joe and his crew took care of my car at a really great price! I needed four tires and a fix for a bent rim on my Acura TL. I was able to pick up my car within a couple days and haven't had any issues. more

After a couple failed attempts at getting my electrical problem fixed on my car, I found this gem of an auto repair shop. My headlights would randomly just go off while driving at night. Obviously a safety hazard but also a magnet for tickets. These guys got everything rewired and fixed in 2 days. Its been a week so far and everything is working perfectly. more

Sigismondi Foreign Car Service is the place to go for fast, reliable in and out service. Last Friday I had my check engine light flashing on my dashboard. I popped into their shop frustrated because I was expecting a major repair needing to be completed. I admit I'm not the best at having my car serviced on time, but who really is? Thankfully, the staff notified me it wasn't a major issue, just two simple parts needed to be replaced. They gave me an estimate of total work and tips on how I can save on these issues in the future! Thanks guys! more

I visited Sigismondi Foreign Car Service last month and cannot say enough about this business. Professionalism was their game and I was sold on it. Since I live close to the shop, I finally popped in once my timing belt was making too much noise. The wait for service wasn't long and the staff treated me like I was one of their own. I couldn't believe I hadn't checked them out before! If you are tired of your local mechanic's antics, go check out Sigismondi FCS.\r more

These guys work super-quick, have really reasonable prices and the work is top-notch. I've never had a problem with anything these guys have fixed for me, and they undercut everyone else's prices around. more

I took my car to these rip off artitsts and a week later things are wrong.I called to speak with the owner Joe,and kept getting excuses he isnt in, he s on vacation, etc etc...So, I take my car to another mechanic and they told me that whoever did the work on my car didnt give me new parts like i payed for. to this day i keep getting excuses as to why he wont return my call. Ive got a better one iLL SEE THEM IN COURT. Youre not gona take my hard earned money and not fix what i payed to be fixed. wrong person!! DO NOT TAKE YOUR VEHICLE HERE, He has been ripping ppl off for years with his million dollar boat which im sure was purchased from all the cams he did to customers. more

I just recently moved to South Philly, and was trying to find a shop to work on my BMW. I searched the Internet, and found Sigismondi Foreign Car Specialists.\r The owner Joe was very knowledgeable, and explained exactly what was wrong with my car. Turns out, it wasn't as bad as other shops told me it was. He fixed my car, at a good price, and returned it faster then I expected!!!\r Thanks Joe, and you've found a new, loyal customer!! more

dont go here! 4/7/2009

i picked up my car and everything was fine, until i noticed i had received a license plate frame advertising sigismondi for the world to see. Putting that there without asking is one thing. But i already had a custom plate cover that he threw away and replaced with his own. Called to get it back and got a ""yeah we'll get right on that"" response. They are jerks! Pros: Example: best croissants in town Cons: badservice more

RIPPED OFF AND TERRIFIED OF THE OWNER 4/3/2009

I (8 months pregnant w/my 1 year old in a stroller) brought my 2004 Honda Accord to Sigismondi Car Specialists to have a state inspection done on March 22, 2009. I thought the location would be convenient since I live only a few blocks away and could walk to and from while my car was being serviced. The owner, Joseph Sigismondi asked me to come back in 2 hours and the inspection would be done. When I returned he explained that my car had failed - I was shocked, because I have never had any problems with the car and was hoping to show it to a potential buyer later that evening. He explained that it failed due to a air filter sensor. He explained that my check engine light was on (but I stated that I had NEVER seen that on) and he could temporarily turn it off for $75 more, but it would go back on within a few days. I didn't feel 100% honest about it, but I wanted to show the car that evening and have the problem fixed that week. So I agreed and paid the full amount of $187.25 for all of the services. After the next few days, I started to become concerned about the services I received from Sigismondi and my husband and I were questioning whether I was being ripped off or not. I knew there was nothing wrong with my car and 1 week later, the check engine light NEVER turned back on. So I decided to take my car to Pep Boys auto service for another inspection to see if Sigismondi's report was accurate or not. And NOT to my surprise, IT PASSED INSPECTION for only $60!! I was quite furious at this point. Thinking that a local businessman had taken advantage of me, an 8 month pregnant woman! I immediately drove to Sigismondi on March 30, 2009 to dispute the services performed and ask for a refund. I explained to the same man, Joseph Sigismondi that my car just passed inspection and my check engine light NEVER turned back on and that I felt I was being ripped off and wanted a refund. I did swear here and there, being that I was angry and also realized that he had put a license plate frame advertising his shop on my car W/O permission! He asked me to leave and so I did and on my way out I said that I would be reporting him and would dispute the charges with my credit card company. He then decided to follow me to my car - remember I am 8 month's pregnant... I got into my car and my gut told me to lock the door, so I did. Then Mr. Sigismondi tried to open my door several times and started banging on my driver's side door window! I was terrified, what was this man trying to do to me? Why would he be trying to get into my car? He then started to yell and spat on my window 2x. I was so scared and started crying hysterically. What would anyone want to do by opening a woman's car door? I quickly drove away and when I got home I called my husband immediately. I could not stop crying, I was scared. Did he have my address? Was he going to come to my house and either vandalize my car or try confronting me again? I didn't know, but unfortunately I didn't fee Cons: EVERYTHING more

TOTAL RIP-OFF 6/10/2008

I'm not one to go around bad mouthing people or businesses; but DAMN, talk about bad business skills, and shoddy service!\r \r I went to Sigismonsi's because he touts himself as a BMW expert. He sure does charge expert prices, but the work he did to my car was anything but. As soon as I got my car back from him I heard a rubbing noise. I picked the car up right as they were closing, and I was going out of town for a week early the next morning. I called and left a message letting him know about the issue, and that I would be bringing the car back as soon as I got back from my trip.\r \r When I brought the car in, not only would he not take the time to listen to my problem regarding his ""craftsmanship"", but he wanted me to make an appointment for a week later, and there would be a charge. \r I understand that he may have been busy right thin, and there. If he said "" I'm in the middle of something now, can you come back in an hour"" I would have been more than happy. If he took the 2 minutes to look at the issue, and thin say ""i'm not sure what that is, can you bring it back in a week? I would have again been more than happy to do so, and pay the diag fee with the understanding that it would be returned if the issue was related to his work.\r \r When he finally did look at the issue he said it was an unrelated ""new"" problem. \r I had a feeling he may pull something like this, so I had the dealer look at the issue before my appointment with Sigismondi. They confirmed that the job Sigismondi did WAS,in fact, not done correctly. \r When confronted with this he still didn't back down, and got angry with me. \r \r For fear that he would do something else to my car I took the loss and had the job redone correctly at a professional shop.\r \r All that being said...This was my experience with Sigismondi's your's may be better. Just be aware that he may pull the same tricks with your car, and hard earned money. Cons: service (both coustomer, and auto) more
