Best VW Repair in Town 3/21/2012

Jim Glass and his folks at Glass Cars are the best VW repair guys around. I took my 08 Beetle in for a new headlight. Usual cost at the dealer is $200, Jim charged me $51. I have a 74 Karman Ghia that I bought new . Since it is the last one made I decided to keep it. Jim does all the routine maintenance at a very reasonable price. Honest as the day is long. You can't go wrong. Pros: null Cons: null more

Speak with Jim about your repair and maintenance needs. They'll work with you and your budget, are honest and do what's necessary to get your car running smoothly on the road. I wouldn't take it anywhere else. more

Glass Cars is Great! 9/20/2010

Glass Cars has been my "go to" place for everything automotive for many years. From a simple oil change to a full brake job to body work; they are reasonable, reliable and thorough. Jim and Terry always lay out the issues, give me my options, complete the work, and go over the repairs with me. Auto repair you can always trust. Customer service you'll crave. more

Best Body Shop in Dallas 7/2/2009

After taking my car to Service King for an estimate due to a fender bender (literally), I googled "body shops dallas" and found Glass Cars. Since I live in the neighborhood I decided to swing by for an estimate. They came in much lower than Service King, and I felt as if I was getting personal service from them vs. the cattle call method of Service King. Pros: Convenient location, honest estimate, incredible cust serv. Cons: None more

Excellent service! 2/27/2009

I highly recommend them! Glass cars had excellent customer service and made everything hassle free. Jim, the owner, always kept me updated on the progress of my car. They did a great job and for a great price too. Being family owned really gives it that personal touch. I will definitely go back to Glass Cars when/if my car needs any more work! Pros: service, price, quality of work more

I have been a customer at Glass Cars for 20 to 25 years. They have done body work and maintenance service for my cars as well as the cars for my family. We have always been pleased with the work and consider the pricing to be fair. It's a good company. Pros: Prompt attention and fair pricing. more

Great Repair and Service 8/14/2008

We have been using Glass Cars for both mechanical repairs and body work for the past 14 or 15 years. We have had Fords, Jeeps, VWs and Audis during this time, and Jim has always stood behind his work, provided great customer service and solid repairs at a fair price. I highly recommend Glass Cars for your auto's mechanical and body work needs. Pros: Great Service and Workmanship more

Excellent Mechanical Work 8/11/2008

Glass Cars fix my clutch for me after a valet parker burned it out. The owner Jim was incredibly helpful in both getting my truck fixed and handling someone else's insurance company. He also fixed it for less than originally quoted, which was already was less than the dealership. He was also very helpful even after the repair was done. The repair work was excellent. I highly reccomend them. Pros: Excellent mechanical work, convenient location, and excellent service Cons: They are very busy with so it took them a day or two to get to my repair, but excellent and fast once they got to it more

This is a great place for good and friendly service! 6/6/2008

This was the first time I've taken a car in for body work. I was confused and a little nervous about all this. I have to say that I really appreciated the friendly, honest and clear reponse I recieved from Jim Hanks, the owner of Glass Cars, and his staff. The were great in answering my questions and taking care of my needs. Pros: The work was all great! Cons: None more

Best Car Repair, honest and good prices. Be prepared to leave your car as they are very busy. 8/23/2007

My father and I had auto supply stores and repair shops when I was young. I learned almost everything you can about cars. But, like mowing the lawn, I refuse to do it any more. I think I know how to evaluate a mechanic. more

Honest, Fair & Friendly Glass Cars 8/2/2007

My life is easier since we found Glass Cars 7 years ago! I never have to worry or even think about auto repair. For our 4 cars--different models, makes, years,conditions--we know that Jim Hanks will recommend, and do, only what is necessary and prudent. Repairs have been great, and body work looks like new. He always calls with any estimates, changes or updates. No pressure to be first in line at the dealership on Monday morning; I know that my car will be next in line whenever I take it in, and the work will be finished as soon as possible. The staff are friendly, Jim is great and there is even a monthly newsletter with coupons and advice. Pros: expertise, honesty, fair price more

The Last Honest Mechanic in Dallas !!! 6/25/2007

I recently took my 1973 MGB to Glass Auto after experiencing problems with my clutch. Needless to say, the clutch was blown and I was stuck without a car for at least a week. The owner of Glass Auto gave me a ride home and offered to contact a rental car company for me. What made my experiece so rewarding was not the repair itsself, but the service during and after the service was complete. For example, I was called with an estimate to repair my car in 24 hours and the shop went to work on the car the next day. In addition, I was dealt with honestly and fairly by the owner and the staff was very friendly and happy to help me. I have since sent several co-workers and friends to Glass Auto and same type of treatment was given - nothing less than first rate each and everytime. My experience led me to joke with my co-workers and friends that I have found the last honest mechanic in Dallas and plan to spread the word. It should be noted that I also plan to buy a second-hand car from the owner and restore it. Pros: Length of time in the business, depth of knowledge on all makes and models Cons: One has to be patient, Glass is thorough and complete with its service more

Quality workmanship at a great price 5/31/2007

I took my Mustang in for repairs after I rammed it into a pole and was very pleased with the service I received from Glass Cars. The final price was more than the estimate but this was excusable seeing as the damage was not detectable until the car was pulled apart. Their prices are very similar to other places I went to which were located in the middle of nowhere which leads me to believe they are quite honest with their estimates. The only issue I had is that they took 2 days longer than expected but the quality of the work is excellent, my car now looks better than it did before the accident!! Pros: Price, workmanship, location Cons: took longer than expected more

Small town service and value in the big city!! 1/10/2007

I drive an Acura TSX, and for the second time, pulled too close to a curb and got my front bumper stuck. When I put it in reverse, the bumper pulled almost completely off. The last time this happened, I took it to the dealership, where they told me that, of course, I would need a new bumper, blah blah blah. You can imagine. All in all, that ended up costing around $700. So this time, I decided that a local auto body repair might be able to do it for a few hundred less -- maybe. I found Glass Cars by chance, as it is close to my house and it came up on City Search. I called and was told to bring it in. To make a long story short, I had my car fixed, later that same day (and not just fixed, looking great!), for within the price range I was quoted. Which was $30. Pros: Price, prompt service, friendly service, location more
