Honest, trustworthy and knows more about all types of cars 7/25/2011

Tony is a rare breed. Honest, trustworthy and knows more about all types of cars than anyone I have ever encountered. My wife took our VW Passat in after receiving the news from my dealer that we needed front and rear brakes and a new CV Joint. The price they quoted was unreal and the car only had 40k on it. Tony not only pointed out that I only needed rear breaks but also said the V Boot was fine and even got it inspected!! Unlike the dealer they choose the honest approach above the "make money anyway you can approach". These guys take care of you like you would your own family...They have a customer for life. more

A rare find! 7/25/2011

Jerry, Ed, Andrew and Tony's repair team are superb!! It's the way it should be; honest, professional, and they care about the customer's cost. WOW, what a concept. A rare find indeed. Thanks and bless you guys! more

We find them trust-worthy and knowledgable. 7/22/2011

Great Place: Tony's is the only place we will go to with our cars. We find them trust-worthy and knowledgable. more

Honest and Busy 7/20/2011

Ditto, Honest and Busy: Repeating the description from another reviewer. Classic car shop waiting room, with wood paneling, magazines, a gum ball machine. Sometimes hard to get anyone to smile there, but then, how friendly do you need to be. more

Honest and reliable 7/19/2011

Honest and reliable: I started going to Tony's a couple years ago - since then, my 8 year old car never gives me problems. They work quickly, they are honest, they don't talk down to you, and are a community establishment. Their prices are fair and if they can't do it, they will find someone who will. I give them a 5 out of 5. more

quality work 7/15/2011

quality work: Tony's keeps my old car running smoothly. They're not the least expensive option, but they do very good work at fair prices. more

Honest opinion 7/13/2011

Excellence & Honesty: Tony is a master mechanic whose honesty and commitment to his customers is rarely found these days. If you need an honest opinion by an expert for a fair price, go to Tony's Auto Service in Alexandria - it is the best in the Metro area by far. If, however, you want your hand held and to be treated like you are at the theater by a dishonest, clueless, and smiling scoundrel, find another another place - there are plenty of them. more

Best prices, best service and the most honest 7/7/2011

This is the best service station in the D.C. metro area. Best prices, best service and the most honest. I was told by another place my car would cost over $1000 to fix. Tony's fixed it for under $200. They are the best. Highly recommended. more

They are honest and knowledgeable. 7/6/2011

Tony's Auto Service is top notch. They are honest and knowledgeable. I have taken my car there for 10 years. My parents have taken their cars there for 25 years and still do. Great place. more

Thanks Tony 7/5/2011

I felt compelled to write about my recent experience at Tony's Auto. I brought my car in for, front brake repair, passenger side tie rod replacement and a steering alignment. The car was ready the same day and the price for all repairs was fair. I quickly realized however that the brakes were making a squeaking noise and the steering wheel was slightly out of alignment. I also experienced a major concern when my engine starting making extremely loud horrible engine combustion noises. I had the car towed back to Tony's that same week. I called to explain my problems and the next day the car was ready. It was determined that the engine noise was due to a loose spark plug.(nothing that Tony had worked on) The brake noise was fixed, the steering alignment corrected, and the spark plug issue repaired, all for only the cost of an oil change, which I had requested. The car now runs and feels as great as ever . What could have been an expensive and troubling experience turned out to have a happy ending. I believe that I was treated fairly and that they did the right thing. Thanks Tony. more

Best value, best service, expert repairs 6/30/2011

This is the best garage in the metro area period. Best value, best service, expert repairs. There is a reason why people drive hundreds of miles to have their cars serviced at Tony's....Excellence!! Bravo Tony! more

I LOVE this place 6/22/2011

I LOVE this place- they hava always given me really good service and my car has been running like a champ :) I highly recommend anyone taking their car here for all types of work. I never felt taken advantage of here. more

Great people, great service 6/21/2011

I live in Winchester VA. I have a 2006 F350 Diesel. Ford at Winchester or Front Royal couldn't fix my truck after four weeks. I met Tony through business in July 2010. Tony repaired my truck in one day and had his road test guy drive it 125 mile to my business to test drive it with him. This is an old business with old values, something the modern business world lacks. I will always use this auto repair. Great people, great service. Thank you, Tony. more

Listen, Tony's Auto Service repair shop are pros 6/20/2011

Listen, Tony's Auto Service repair shop are pros. They service buses from around the metropolitain area for the US Government. I know, I saw them working on them there. They have a huge set of repair bays, and a large number of ASE certificates hanging off their walls. The place is a big of a throw back to Auto service stations of years ago - but don't let that fool you. They know what they're doing. And their pricing is fair. You see all makes and models being serviced there. It's also a short walk to the Braddock Metro stop, and also not far from Route 1 where many local busses go. Listen, it's where I take my car when I can't fix it myself... and I'm a rocket scienist. So, anyways, if you got the wrecker there and you're ready to shell out cash to a dealer - go right ahead. But if you're like me, and you keep your car for more than a couple of years - and you got issues - go see Tony's. more

AMAZING, most trustworthy 6/16/2011

AMAZING, most trustworthy bunch of mechanics I've ever encountered 'round these parts - heard about 'em in the first place because of word of mouth. Once, I took my car in for squeaky brakes and figured I'd need to get them all replaced, got it in same day, rec'd a call a few hours later where they told me the brakes were just dirty and that they cleaned 'em up for cheap and that the car was ready. Who does that??? more

I'll be a repeat customer. 4/5/2011

I walked in and immediately saw that Tony's is a certified Maserati repair shop, as well as a US Secret Service commendation for fine work. I think if both Maserati and President Bush were pleased enough with their work, that Tony's would be fine for my Toyota. My car had a weird vibrating/metal sound coming from the rear. I feared for the worst and though I'd need a new transmission. An associate at Secret Service recommended I go to Tony's who specializes in Toyotas. Tony's quickly diagnosed it as only a loose exhaust heat shield. They diagnosed, fixed and road tested it in apparently under .6 hrs, as that was all I was charged for. What a fantastic deal, especially when some garages would have just rebuilt the transmission to collect 2 grand from me.Tony's is also conveniently a block away from the Braddock Rd Metro, meaning I could drop off the car on Friday evening and Metro home. The only downside to Tony's is that they are closed on weekends so I dropped my car off on Friday evening but they didn't begin work on it until Monday morning. Whatever, for their honesty and good work, I'll be a repeat customer. more

Excellent service 3/21/2011

My wife had to replace both her front and rear brakes and get the rotors machined. Tony got us in the same day and out the door in 3 hours! Excellent service and the quote he told me over the phone matched the final price. Great communication, service, and value. Will definitely go to him for all automotive needs! more

keep coming back 3/17/2011

A friend recommended I take my '99 Toyota truck here after I got a repair quote from Springfield Toyota which literally took my breath away. First they told me I didn't need half the work the dealership told me I did and then they fixed the problem for a fraction of the cost. I saved literally hundreds of dollars, my truck is running fine again and you can't really ask for more than that. This place looks like an old garage you'd find on a back road, run by a couple of good ol' boys, and that's basically what it is. These guys, however, know Toyotas as well as they do Chevys and they won't do you wrong. I'm going to keep coming back. more

accommodating my every wish 3/15/2011

The management at Tony's has worked with me, accommodating my every wish. Through the years they have called me to provide updates, what they have found while doing services, and have pointed out some things that needed repairs, which I chose to delay - no problem. They are honest, conscientious and very professional. Before I took my car there I always saw vehicles from every government agency in town, so I figured if they trust them, what not me? Stepping inside their facility is honestly like stepping back in time 50 years. It looks, smells and appears very old fashioned, and they retain that amount of pride in their work, as well. more

The best 3/11/2011

Simply put, its the best auto repair facility in metro-DC. I've been going there for years and I trust them. more
