Sandy Longo Google Review

Hands down, the best mechanic around. Not only is he very kind, thoughtful and has an adorable dog (Paws) that keeps you company while you wait....he is VERY affordable. I cannot believe how little he charges. Joe is a very trustworthy guy that often reminds me of my grandfather which makes him all the more great. My sister, her boyfriend, my fiancé, me, a friend everyone has gone to him for some time now. Never ever second guessed his recommendations or fixes like I have for every other mechanic who usually take advantage of younger (naive) car-challenged women. Joe is THE MAN.

Tiffany Banks Google Review

They were extremely polite, professional, fast and prices were great. Outstanding experience, will be back again for sure

Edit: I've been back a few times now and they are simply the best in the area. No question. I moved since and tried to go to a place closer to home but it was awful. I'm now taking the longer drive because you can't find better quality service. Great people

Des Google Review

I was told my car needed work to pass an inspection by another shop and I felt like I was being ripped off. I was referred to Ultimate Auto by the guy I go to for my tires. Joe got me in within an hour on a Saturday which I was happy about since my inspection was already overdue 7 days! He did a thorough job and just as I thought, my car did not need the work i was told it needed! Joe was awesome and I got a really good vibe from him. I can tell he is honest and I will be bringing my car here for any future repairs!

Jamie Krupczyk Google Review

First time using this shop. Highly recommend it! Went in for inspection and was 100% satisfied with honest communication, safe, family feel to the atmosphere. Very fair pricing and quick wait time. Call and make an appointment with these guys and brighten your day! Brightened mine when the bill was less than Expected and they invited me back for coffee anytime.

Cyrus I. Google Review

They do what you ask of them and provide recommendations if you have other things that need to be tended to. They are honest and reliable workers that I have been going to for two years now.

Update: Been going here for three years now. They keep my 04 Maxima going and fix her up and make sure she is running smoothly. The prices are reasonable and they still have their motto of being upfront and will answer questions if they can or they will get back to you if they need to first calculate the quote. They do not try to sell you anything. I still like going here and will continue to do so.

Argi Hispanic American Google Review

Great service. Great price. They can also typically work on a timeline if neccessary. Sometimes parts may need to be ordered and they most definately get you the best price. They also will charge you the lowest price in the mechanic business.

Ron Phinney Google Review

Had to get my truck inspected. Made an appointment and they were right on schedule. They are polite, respectful, and I will definitely be going back next time I need any work done.

Terry Rohrback Ultimate Auto Service Customer Review

Joe is a good guy and mechanic. I have been here several times and he was always helpful, honest and prompt, and the rates are very reasonable. It's an old shop that caters to regulars and older or domestic vehicles. This time I called though he turned down the job just because it wasn't something he wanted to work on, which was kind of disappointing.

Noble Pursuit Google Review

Ridiculously fair pricing, honest, quick service, trust worthy. Won't take my car anywhere else.

Katelyn Irwin Google Review

Joe only does what is absolutely necessary for our cars. He won't try to fix what doesn't need fixing. VERY HONEST!!!!

Nick Azzarelli Google Review

i'm not from the area but i've made it my mission to go out of my way to come here for auto repair and services. it's very hard to find people in this industry that won't try to shake you down but joe's saved me literally hundreds of dollars for my inspection and his prices are more than fair. when i went to one place to get a quote for my headlight, they asked around for about ten minutes before giving up and saying i'd need a brand new one for $350. joe took his time and finally found one for $125 at a junkyard. this is just one example of how much he cares about who comes through his doors.

in the time during my visit (i was there for a couple of hours) i saw them give a young woman a ride that was dropping off a car. i then watched joe trying to advise a man he couldn't personally help (he doesn't do foreign vehicles) in a five minute conversation on where to potentially go for his volvo. this man doesn't care about the money, he cares about his clients. if you're even thinking about going here or making a switch with your current auto place, do it!!!

shuang gao Google Review

Folks, if you're looking for an honest, capable garage then hands down Ultimate Auto Service is it. I've tried a number of places around WNY and always felt a bit bamboozled. But the guys at Ultimate are straight-shooters who are only going to fix what needs to be fixed, it'll be fixed right and, if my invoice is any indication, they're going to nearly %50 cheaper than the competition.

I needed all new brake pads and rotors and went to Ultimate based on the reviews I read here and I'm happy I did! The total time from drop-off to pick-up was only 3 hours; no milking the labor rate here. Heck, they even threw in my NYS Inspection for free! I mean, how cool is that? They'll definitely be my go-to place for any car repairs in the future. Thanks again Ultimate Auto Service!

Justin C Google Review

Kendell McNichols Google Review

These guys are the absolute best. Incredibly honest, amazing prices, and very efficient. Searched the city for a reasonable deal to get my extremely used car to pass inspection and these gentlemen literally saved me HUNDREDS of dollars. I was told I needed several other repairs to pass (ball joint, smoke test, tires, etc) and here I was in and out in an HOUR- I am an easy target for being WAY overcharged for auto repair, but luckily I was patient and found my new mechanic FOR LIFE. Thank you Joe and Larry, I owe you like WHOA.

Emily Dyett Google Review

They are truly the best mechanics in Buffalo. I have honestly been ripped off so many times by mechanics. Finally being blessed to have great mechanics!!Only reason I went to them is because they had 4. 7 stars on Google and I'm so glad that I did !!Thank you Google and the Awesome Boys at Ultimate auto they seem like they've been around for years!!! longer then I've been alive and I'm 22 lol..great experienced mechanics who was more worried about the Safety of myself in the car..than trying to bankrupt me..They are very Respectable!they are my mechanics now!!!

Anthony Hairston Google Review

They don't try and gouge you for what you don't need, but they will let you know issues as they see them. I went in for my water pump, and they noted the lower radiator line was going to go in a couple months. They didn't try to scare me into it, they just let me know, and asked if they should knock that out too. Another time, had my 'Check Engine' light come on. They made sure everything was right, and I passed my inspection while I was in there. If you've ever seen the episode of Seinfeld, where Jerry is lamenting about finding a mechanic you can trust? Well, these would be the guys :)

Corey Reichle Google Review

I had a problem with my window....it was stuck half way down and being winter, I couldn't just let it go. I wanted to go to a neighborhood shop as I believe in keeping the business in the neighborhood. Joe agreed to check out the problem and gave me a ride home. On the way to my house my vehicle was making this awful noise, something I knew would have to be checked out but not right now due to financial reasons. Well Joe said that the matter regarding the noise was a much more serious matter and he said to save the money that I would spend on the window and apply it to the other issue. Joe was able to close the window and secure it and fix the mechanical problem for a reasonable amount. As a female, I feel that I get taken advantage of because of my lack of knowledge regarding cars. I have finally found someone that I can trust and am grateful for reading the other reviews in making my decision to go see Joe. Good man, Joe :)

A Google User Google Review

I actually decided to use this shop on a skim of the Google reviews, so really, I'm just adding to the positive comments and stars already in play here. I needed my first NY state inspection completed but at the same time had a nasty 'check engine' light which up until the visit I thought was truly emissions-related (I quarterback interpreted an engine code given to me once by another party) and would maybe cost hundreds and hundreds of dollars to fix if not a thousand. Nope, it turned out to be a relatively inexpensive sensor on my transmission, something that I now understand was impacting the car in a number of other ways, need for inspection notwithstanding. I feel like I'm driving a new car now. The shop aura was friendly and extremely warm, my particular issue had me sitting around a bit and everyone (vendors and other customers) who came in was happy and cheerful with the staff. Nobody hurried the diagnoses - I didn't feel like I was being bum-rushed - once the problem was understood the mechanic was very straightforward and clear. I nodded on the work to be done and he went at it straight away. As is typical of me, I simultaneously Googled the issue to 'follow along' in You Tube videos, and am pleased to say the work appears to have been completely congruent to the issue. The shop itself is impeccable and unusually cozy, I took my fair share from the coffee bar which they were very accommodating about. Their shop dog moseys about and is quite friendly with the people waiting such as myself. She took up station in her own apparent seat at the shop's front window just watching the day go by. Even she was a delight. I think you can always tell good people by the demeanor of their pets so positive rating aside, I knew I was working with people I could trust. It seems to have paid off, I have a problem-free car that is now road legal via the least anxious route possible. Would highly recommend, I am a permanent customer now.

David Pinero Google Review

They are friendly and go above and beyond to meet your needs in car repair. They are very straight forward; I have never been more confident in getting my car repaired and not being taken advantage of than by the good people at this shop. The prices are the best I've seen from any mechanic and they work with you every step of the way. Great shop, great people, I will always recommend them to anyone and everyone. If you need work done go to this shop, you will be more than satisfied.

Kierman Zogrephos Google Review

Great experience! After being recommended here by two different co-workers, I opted to try it out and am very pleased to have done so! Great work, friendly, fast, and most importantly reliable. Highly recommend their services. They'll definitely see my future business.

Holly Smith Google Review

Seems like an honest mechanic! Dropped my car off Wed mid-day & it was ready about 3 hours later despite them telling me they were behind. The owner even picked me up from the house so I could get my car back! And get this; they said they found nothing really wrong, suggested I change my tires soon & DIDN'T CHARGE ME A DIME! I've found my new mechanic.
