Funny, the zillion times I've driven that block I'm always looking right, at all the fascinating electrical crap. If they're all you say they are, I'll be a happy camper, they're so damn close! Brakes need attention, guess that's not a bad 1st thing to do with them. Damn dealership should have given me a heads up about the pads, it's only been 3-4k miles since they last ripped me off for the "scheduled maintenance".

Joe's is gone. I used him for years, he was honest, but I felt he had a hand in the demise of my aged vehicle due to poor maintenance. I think he was not proactive enough about checking brake pads, spark plugs etc for fear of being seen as working you over. My Kia is now 4 years old and I'm tired of shlepping it to the dealer on 440.

Well Greg, at least you're consistent about not knowing anything about anything. Consumer Reports has Kia #9 of 30 for Best Brand, ahead of Honda, Volvo, Mercedes, Acura and Infinity, among others. My under $17k Soul was a stupendous value.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned them in this thread (I'm not reading the whole thing), but A&R on 5th Street right by Healy's is awesome. I've dealt with Alberto in detail when having my Audi repaired; two other shops quoted be over $1,000 for a new airbag sensor, when the real problem was only taking apart the seat and reconnecting everything again. Alberto didn't even charge me for anything. Can't say enough good things about A&R, a totally honest place in an industry with many shady characters.

Another vote for Ziggy's. Their work, while not cheap, is top notch. Highly recommended!

Wondering if people can recommend an auto-body shop in downtown area (or close to). Rear of leased car scraped up (mostly paint scrapes and a broken tail light). Was hoping to find a place close to home so I wouldn't have to travel by taxi somewhere.

I usually do everything on my cars myself but I was stumped with a certain problem. I would never go to a rip-off auto dealer for service. So I decided to stay JC local. I found the AAMCO up on JFK and Danforth. I never realized it but they don’t do just transmissions anymore they do all kinds of auto repair. They have a parking lot on the side of their business. They are really friendly and helpful. The place is clean. A pleasant surprise in my good old Jersey City.

Jersey City, NJ
1742 John F Kennedy Blvd, Jersey City, NJ 07305

.
PS – Yes I am “that guy” who works on my cars on city streets. I never had a problem with the city inspectors until I tried changing out an engine in the 80’s. (I think I was ratted on by a newcomer yuppie) I toned it down after that encounter. Now I mostly just stick to changing my oil and brake pads.

And yes Summit Auto Repair is fantastic.

This is an auto repair and also an autobody shop. They do excellent work and use either OEM parts or quality after market parts. Prices are set and shown on the computer prior to making a commitment to do the work.
They are in the Heights across from The Reservoir.

Summit Auto in Pavonia Ave. Those guys (Rich, Tom and his brother) are BMW enthusiasts, they all drive one and took good care of my 528 for many years.

They are percise and do terrific work. Emilio spells everything out to you I felt he was honest and he got the job done without me having to go back.

I can't speak directly to suspension work, but I will +1 the general recommendation for Ricky at Chariot. He went so far as to put my car back on the lift to show me the work he'd done. No dealer / large shop will do that for you any longer.

No idea if he does body work.

FYI his number is (201) 824-3352

Good luck.

Can anyone offer a suggestion to a mechanic that's done work on their suspension? I think I need a new front left wheel bearing on my Mazda, but want to get it properly diagnosed.

I saw someone suggest A M Auto Body earlier in the thread, but when I drove by 6th St. yesterday it looked very closed.


Also going to need a place that can paint a panel for me once Spring comes around, if anyone has a suggestion there it would be appreciated.

Head over to Chariot Auto on Coles between 4th and 5th street. The owner and mechanics name is Ricky. He offers great service and I like using him because he is in the neighborhood. If i have to leave my car for a long period i can just walk home.

Was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of a local auto body place that's honest and reasonably priced.

I scraped the side of my car against a wall resulting in a dent and scraped paint on my door. Would probably just need some touch up paint and the dent pulled out.

Anyone know of a place where I can get this done without getting gouged? Or have a guess about how much this work will set me back?

First place I'd try is Joe's Auto Electric. They do full service, not just electrical. Honest, no BS, local. Close to Coles on that alley that runs one way (west) between Jersey Ave and Coles, just 100 feet south of Newark Ave.

A M auto repair recently passed my litmus test for an honest garage - I took my car in because I thought I might need a belt replacement or new suspension, and they actually told me everything was in good working order and the only thing I needed was an oil change.

Harrington's in Bayonne also has passed this test, they once refused to charge me for multiple test drives and 2 days of garaging after they didn't find anything wrong with my car.

(I may in fact be a bit of a car hypochondriac but at least no one has taken advantage of that fact)
