Had my Audi A6 repaired a couple of days ago by Ming's Auto Repair and received the highest quality repair and care! Great communication skills with comprehendible explanations, and a follow up email :) Major repair work included: replacement of timing belt and related stuff (water pump etc), value cover gaskets (car leaked like crazy) and replace spark plugs. I mentioned that my check engine light as been on for about 70,000 miles, replaced some tubes and the light has been off since (another shop quoted me $2K plus to replace the catalytic converters. Plus, my mileage has improved by 4mph/gallon. Heck, the car was wash, and vacuumed as well! Recommend Ming's Auto without hesitation.

I recently had extensive work done on my Subaru Outback. I needed both a new head gasket and a rebuilt transmission. It was a very big decision to make, and I needed the advice of an expert to explain the procedures, and to assist me in making a decision about whether to do the work or give up on the car. Because I had a car that was in otherwise good shape, I was leaning towards doing the repairs, but felt I had to find someone I could really trust to do the work. Ming Wong turned out to be just that person. I was given a very thorough explanation about the nature of the job, what I could expect, and what the risks might be. Once I decided to go through with the job, Ming got started. I was lined up with a local rental, and by the next day, the parts were ordered and work was begun. During the process, I was given frequent updates, and much to my surprise the work was completed in a very timely manner. When I picked up my car, Ming explained all he had done, and while he was involved in the deep engine work, he had reviewed everything and completed additional maintenance that will keep my car in good form for the next few years. I was also given detailed instructions about keeping my car in top performance mode. When I picked up my car, it looked, sounded and performed like a new auto. It took a lot of trust on my part to do with a new mechanic to do this work, but he had been well recommended, and from my point of view, the recommendations were well founded. I would recommend this garage to others.

My car more or less imploded after work one day, and following the advice of previous reviewers, I took it to Ming's for repair - I was not led astray. They did excellent work, and everything was explained very thoroughly (and without condescension - appreciated, though I will be the first to admit I know nothing about cars.) My car runs better than it did before its meltdown.

Ming's is Great! So far, they have been super honest about what my car needs and they never pressure me into anything. They get the car back the same day and call to confirm that you want to go ahead with the changes. My only compliant is that it is a bit pricey. That said, I am willing to pay the extra for the quality of service I have gotten. THanks for keeping my car in good shape Ming!

Done all the work on my 95 mazda millenia. Never an issue he could't figure out or couldn't fix. Gave the best recipts I've ever seen. I don't have a lot to price against, but it seemed fair. If your getting a lot of expensive work done he'll usually clean the interior for free. For the bad: they're a little short with opinions. They'll call you back and say "here is the problem do you want to fix it or not", and if you try to negotiate you might get the impression they don't want to discuss it. You either get the work done or not, end of story. Also, only Ming and one other mechanic speak english, which isn't an issue in and of itself, but if it's busy and you have questions you have to wait for Ming to finish with the other customers.

Ming knows Audi cars very well, and equally important, he is honest. I have an Audi A6, and the check engine light was on. The error code suggested the problem was related to the catalytic converter. I talked to several shops asking for a quote, all of them said it would cost more than a thousand dollars to fix the catalytic converter or the oxygen sensor. Then I found Ming's shop by searching the internet, and stopped by his garage. After showing him the error code, he asked me the year of the car and the mileage. With this information, he immediately told me that the catalytic converter was still within the warranty and informed me that this could be fixed for free with Audi dealers. This information was a big relief for me and saved me ~ thousand dollars. As he suggested, the catalytic converter was replaced by an Audi dealer for free.

Ming's is great! My check engine light came on recently, and I took my car to a dealership (because I was on the road and near one). They told me that the light came on due to my oil control pumps and that it was most likely my head gaskets leaking oil. They immediately started quoting me 1700 dollars to replace all of them and trying to give me a loaner and start working on them. I called Ming who reminded me that they hadn't even confirmed that it was the head gaskets. I had my car towed to Ming's and rented a car on my own. Ming came to find out that it was not the head gaskets at all, but a leak. He fixed it, and I was out the door, not 1700 bucks deep, but more like 400. He saved me! I love Ming's!

Ming's shop is exceptional is every way. I used to bring my Audi to the dealer, but the costs were simply outrageous. I did some research and read some great reviews about Ming's shop....what a find !! Ming is a consummate professional and offers you a fair assessment of the work that needs to be done. Most recently, Ming assisted me with collision repairs by helping me locate a reliable auto body repair shop. Ming offered to bring my car over to the auto body repair shop at no cost and checked in on the work to make sure it came out flawless. Ming has also offered to stay late on numerous occasions to allow me to pick up my car after hours and he always explains every detail of the repair to me. Ming's shop is a rare find in the city: a friendly, reasonably priced, experienced repair shop that genuinely values the satisfaction of its customers.

I found Ming's auto shop after being jerked around by the Gulf Auto Body Shop in Newton on Washington St. You see, I am not a car person, so I am left to the mercy of the mechanic to do whatever it is that he/she says about my car, as I know nothing about whether they are telling the truth or not. At the gulf station I was told that my O2 sensors were screwed up, but instead of replacing the O2 sensors, they replaced the computer, an air intake valve, and something else- costing me $1700, yet my check engine light was still on, and my engine still revved at red lights. So after blowing 6 weeks pay at the gulf I went to Ming's and explained to him my situation- how I was ignorant about everything involving cars and how my car was still broken yet i had already put $1700 worth of work into it. Ming has been great to me. He fixed my car over night for $900, explaining to me everything that was wrong and all the possible ways we could fix it, each with their own plusses and minuses. It was nice to be given the full discloser of information and actually given all my options to explore from the mechanics point of view. What has impressed me most about Ming's shop is the treatment I have received since become one of their customers, Since my O2 sensors replacement, I have had to bring my car into Ming 3 times because a light has shown up on my dashboard, or my trunk stopped popping open, or my passenger door was sticky. Each time he has personally made time for me on short notice and diagnosed the problem himself, and has given me the cheaper "fix-it-yourself" options, when he could have easily had me leave my car with him for an hour and charged me manual labor. He has always treated me with respect and I trust that Ming's shop will give me all of my possible options to explore in fixing my car, before charging me an arm and a leg for any procedures. Ming's a great guy, and a wonderful mechanic. I strongly recommend anyone taking their car to see Ming.

I have been bringing my cars to Ming and recommending him for over 10 years. He always explains the repairs to me, which is extremely important, as far as I'm concerned. He's even the one who told me when it was time to retire my last car rather than put more money into it. If that's not honest, I don't know what is! I never have any reservations about recommending Ming to friends and family.
