"My experience with Wilhelm Automotive was amazingly great! They explained everything in a language that I could understand not just Car Shop language. Pulled up fax report to see what my vehicle had already had, and took it from there. I did not have to try to think of the last time I did this or that to my vehicle. They were exceptionally patient with me and check to see if was alright. In the end gave me a internalize list of what need to be done and the amount so I could make my budget out to keep my vehicle running efficiently. I'm a customer for life!"
"Have been going to Wilhelm for my car repairs for the last year and I'm very happy with everything they do. If you need a ride after dropping off car for repairs its no problem! They keep in contact about everything that needs to be repaired and give you a heads up about things that might be needed in the future. I like the idea of dealing with a repair shop with no stress or drama. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great repair shop."
"I take my car to Wilhelm Automotive - Arcadia as I know they are honest, fair and reasonable with what they charge and are clearly committed to doing a good job. As a person who knows nothing about cars I have to trust what I am told and I trust Chris and his staff. They have always kept me informed and treated me with respect and patience. Chris is a great manager - very customer oriented and caring. I like the fact that they have a woman on staff in what is usually a male dominated environment. Cherry's presence is a lovely addition to the place and she obviously keeps everything running smoothly. They run a complimentary shuttle so if your car has to stay at the garage for a few hours or all day they will take you home and pick you up – a definite plus in Phoenix where public transport is less than. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Wilhelm Automotive - Arcadia.......even if I didn’t have a Hybrid I would continue take my car there. Definitely 5 stars!"
"Did a great job getting me in the same day and providing quality work. Friendly staff and convenient pickup and drop off service. Will definitely plan to use them for future vehicle maintenance."
"Wilhelm is a great choice for people trying to find an honest mechanic who strive to help their customers. I have been a customer for almost 6 months now and won't take my vehicle anywhere else after today's experience. I was told by a local competitor that I needed a new wheel bearing assembly on my Truck after I took it in for pulling to the right and a small vibration after getting the 5k mile rotation on a new set of tires. What started out as a warranty claim for "tire pull" ended with a quote of $563.00 to replace my front right wheel bearing assembly. I knew this sounded a bit fishy so I took my truck to Wilhelm on Thomas Rd for a second opinion. I was helped by a gentleman named Brock at Wilhelm that looked over my truck and agreed to diagnose any suspected "wheel bearing" issue. After leaving it with them for less than 2 hours, I got a call from Brock confirming my suspicions of unnecessary work quoted by the competitor. Wilhelm fixed my alignment issue and did a thorough inspection of the truck and failed to find any wheel bearing issue. After 2 hours, I had my truck back and saved $563.00 by not having to pay for unnecessary work. Brock and Wilhelm Automotive chose to be extremely honest today and saved me a lot of money in the process. Word to the wise: If a local competitor has free food for the customers in the waiting area, you're paying for it without knowing it."
