I have been bringing my cars to Funk's European Auto Repair, now Funk's Auto Works for over 25 years.
I've owned only two cars in my lifetime, a BMW and then a Volvo. I bought my BMW 320iS new and drove it for 16 years putting over 300,000 miles on it. Then I bought a new Volvo S70 T5 which I still have after 14 years with nearly 400,000 miles and still going strong. I attribute my great success with both cars and their tremendous longevity largely to Funk's Auto Works.
Arthur Funk is extremely knowledgeable about nearly every make and every model for most cars made, particularly European and Japanese makes (which is nearly everything). Most impressive of all is how well he listens to each customer and how patient he is in sharing his knowledge and explaining sometimes complex mechanical issues to his customers. I have never heard Art hesitate once when confronted with difficult to diagnose car problems. He seems to be able to identify problems with cars so quickly I think he's a car psychic! He even talks about making cars smile and happy when they come to see him!
Every single time that I've done business with Funk's, I have been treated with respect, kindness and with the highest professionalism. I believe that Funk's prices are so competitive that I actually worry if I am being undercharged most of the time. If Arthur has to charge more than the first estimate because of some unforeseen problem when taking apart the engine for some known repair, he is so apologetic and tries hard to make the price easier. Almost nobody else would ever do that for you, especially with the high quality of work that they do.
Any business large or small is only as good as the people who work there. But in very small businesses, the person IS that business. Arthur Funk has spent most of his life treating people with the utmost care. The service that he performs is just the way his fortunate customers get to receive that care.
I count myself as one of those fortunate few and as a result, I have enjoyed virtually non-stop dependability from my automobiles for 700,000 miles.
If I could give 6 stars, I would!
