Best Of Patch: Where is the Best Place For Auto Repairs?

Where do you go in Burlington when you need a tune-up or to get your vehicle fixed?

Welcome to our second edition of Best Of Burlington.

Last week we asked for the , and the results were great.

This week we turn to the automotive world; specifically where you go when your car has a problem. Turning over your keys is an act of trust, as is relying on someone else to come give you a fair estimate for repairs.

So this week we want to know, which auto repair shop is the best in town? Who has given you good service? Who do you feel you can trust to perform good repairs at a fair price? 

Here are some of the places we found, but if we're leaving one off of the list, please let us know in the comments and we'll add it:

Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday. Ties will be broken by whichever business has the most positive comments in the section below. We will announce the winner at noon Friday.

Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.

So tell us your most trusted place for auto repairs. And don't forget to tell us in the comments below why.

When other places wanted to completely replace major parts, Automotion in Billerica fixed my 99'SAAB by using his mechanical skills for a fraction of the price. Best place for SAAB & Volvo repairs that are fair. Best tune-up ever! Thanks Bo.

Tech Auto in Woburn (781) 933-8084 I have had my vehicles worked on by Jim and his staff since 1994. Very honest and reasonable.

Hometown Garage is terrific! Herb and his team there are always professional and get my car and van fixed quickly. I've been going there for as long as they've been open. It's always great to see their friendly dog Kobi when I stop by. They even have internet access and free coffee in their waiting area - can't be beat!

NONE of those places are in Burlington! The Best place in Burlington as far as honesty, quality and more than fair pricing is Delta Sales...which is Paul Sbraccia's location where Prime gas is!

My extended family and I have used Accurate Automotive for years now. We continue to bring our cars there for service as we have complete trust in Brian and his mechanics. We have always been satisfied with the work and appreciate Brian's true investment for our complete satisfaction. Having a mechanic you can trust is worth it's weight in gold and that's how we've always felt with Accurate Automotive.

Brian and his staff at Accurate Automative are friendly and knowledgable. I am happy with the work they performed on my vehicle and will continue to go to their shop in the future. I want to thank them for taking me back and forth to work. T Perez

After going to another local shop for years I found Burlington's Hidden Jewel - Hometown Garage. You won't drive by as they're at the end of dead end street. I went in with a long list of recommended work from the first shop. Herb had his technician check it out, they then took into the shop, showed me what what I need and more importantly showed me what I didn't need. They then gave me ride home in their shuttle, performed the needed work, and picked me up at the end of the day. I've been in three additional times and each time I've gotten the same great service. Hometown is now my go to place for car repairs.

Is somebody stuffing the ballot box?

I think Accurate Automotive is the best and most reliable. Brian and his staff are amazing and totally honest. They are open and honest and ALWAYS inform you of the problem before they even consider repairing it. They are also proactive & will tell you in advance what to wat,ch for as your vehicle ages. They have the most convenient hours - always available when you are. Their location in the center of Bulington, close to all major roads is another big plus. They even provide you with FREE loaner cars while your vehivle is being repaired - this is a priceless service! Brian and his staff ae always friendly and are always avaiable to answer any questions you might have - no matter how stupid the question may be. In my opinion there is no place better in the Burlington area to have your car serviced.

First, I'd like to thank the Patch for running this survey. I live on upper Lexington Street and I've been using the same convenient location for the 17 years I've lived here. Recently, I had an issue that made me think it was time for a change. I had never heard of Hometown Garage. I went there yesterday to check it out and I was very impressed by all the same things the other posters have mentioned. I just got back from my first service and I'm very glad I found them. First class all around.

Getting my car fixed is up there with going to the dentist. The team at Hometown Garage takes all of the pain out of the experience. They are trustworthy, very knowledgeable and always have my best interest in mind.
K Donahue March 08, 2012 at 07:24 PM
Great service! Very helpful and professional
Brian Hohmann March 08, 2012 at 11:15 PM
Congratulations Herb, well deserved. I believe it's good for both of our customers to have choices. As a business owner and technician myself, It keeps me trying to do my job better every day. Brian, owner of Accurate Automotive
