They were the ONLY shop I could find that understood the issues and how to make the repair.  They kept me informed throughout the process and are professional.  I would recommend them highly.  ~ D Radeka 

Phenomenal service.  Even got in touch with owner on cell phone at night to let him know car was being towed in - he offered to try to drive it into work from m house because he lives near me if I chose.  Work has come in UNDER estimate twice.  Highly professional, highly recommended.  ~ A. Niedelman

The service has always been reliable, honest and punctual.  I cannot say enough good things about Jim and his team.  ~ R. Feder

They did a great job.  Everything was done in one day.  ~ J. Higgs

One of the main reasons we've brought our vehicles to you all these years is because of the trust we have in you. In our recent situation with our truck, this again has been proven true. We thank you for your honesty and integrity as a business owner. God will bless you for this act of kindness. We will continue to bring our business to you and will recommend you to our friends.     ~ F & D Hughes

Elite and each of its staff are efficient, clean and their services are priced reasonable.       ~ J. Beauleau


Bill and Ruth were very helpful. Dan is a master at BMW!     ~P. Tellock

Very professional. They do an excellent job at a fair price.     ~C. Rayner

Best service! I've been bringing all my cars here for at least 8 years.  ~ C. Famer

Awesome customer service! The whole team is #1 by far.            ~ T. Whalen

Extremely pleased with quality of work, time completed and communication during repairs ~ excellent!  ~ D. Thompson

Elite does an excellent job everytime. Honest!! They also inform you of items that are showing some wear but not enough to replace at the time.   ~ R. Gilchrist

Love this place!~ C. Schneider

I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for the recent work you did on our 2000 Volvo V70. Through the whole process your entire staff was a pleasure to deal with. You found the root of our computer/electrical problem and the car has been running great ever since you replaced the ABS sensor. Thank you for the wonderful service! We will definitely be using you for any future problems with our Volvo and won't hesitate to recommend you to others!        ~ T & J Shellard

I am a former Elite Auto Repair employee. I and we as a team always tried our best every moment of every day to do the best job possible, in a reasonable time and at a fair price. That being said, I always thought that I understood every aspect of the automotive repair industry. I no longer work in the auto repair industry and my 16 year old daughter bought a 2006 Hyundai Sonata. I drove the vehicle after the purchase and noticed that the vehicle was unstable and felt unsafe over bumps. I brought it back to the dealer she bought it from with no success as far as resolving the problem. For the first time in my life, I felt somewhat helpless when it came to the safety of a vehicle in my family. I realized that I did not know as much as I previously thought I knew about the auto repair business. I brought the vehicle to Elite as a client looking for a cost effective, timely resolution to the problem. They as a team working together found 2 bent components in the left rear suspension, barely visible to the naked eye I might add. They replaced the parts, aligned the vehicle, road tested to confirm that the vehicle was now safe to drive and delivered it to me not only repaired at a more than fair price but spotlessly clean. Looking at this from a clients point of view with my 16 year old daughters safety in question, gave me a whole new appreciation for what Jim and his team do for clients every day. Much appreciation and respect.              ~ Mark

Thank you for all the time you took with me in my search for a car. You made something that can be pretty stressful - buying a car - you made it easy. You were so willing to spend as much time as I needed, giving me so much helpful information about each of the cars I looked at.

What also made it was my previous experience with you and Elite. When I finally broke down and decided it was time to let go of the Honda, I immediately thought of you. I remembered how much I'd been impressed with the level of service and integrity at Elite. I know I could trust you, and for me that's the most important factor in buying a used car. I was being urged to shop around and I had no desire to do so. I'm very happy with the Lexus, I made my first run up to Boston and Worcester the other day and it was so nice to drive. So again, thank you for the help you provided, for being someone I can trust, and for the high quality of service you provide. Your entire team is great, everybody is so friendly and the two mechanics I spoke with, Dave and Wayne, were also willing to take all the time needed - and were very clear in explaining those things I needed to know about the Volvo and the Lexus. You can be sure that you will have my business for as long as I'm in Rhode Island.        ~ M. Lamphear

My wife and I have been a member of the Elite family since 1998 and bring all our cars only to them. Jim and his staff have always put the customers' best interest and needs first. This is the most honest and trustworthy auto repair business that we have dealt with. The staff is very knowledgeable, experienced, and friendly. They treat every customer with respect and dignity. We truly look forward to doing business with Elite; knowing that they are of the highest caliber of professionalism and their work can be trusted. We highly recommend all my family and friends to Elite.  ~ S & S DeSousarosa

Excellent service, prompt and courteous. A pleasure.       ~ J. Leidecker

I have been using Elite for about three years and they do a great job. Especially for my BMW because it’s hard to find garages to work on them. They know their stuff and get things done when they say they will.    ~ A. Castiglioni

Thanks to Elite Auto Repair, my 2000 Camry with 227,500 miles has remained in great shape!      ~ T. McGunigal

The service was excellent. They were very fair and complete in everything they did. It was a pleasure to work with them. They worked with me on a time to take my car in. I would use this company again.  ~ J. Fischer

Better than the very best! I am proud to be a part of the Elite Family Experience!               ~ C. Farmer

They were able to squeeze me in and complete the work the same day - couldn't ask for better service!  ~ P. Durfee

The 'auto miracle worker'! Thank you for your help keeping my 2000 Sienna (with over 200,000 miles) on the road. We both appreciate your expertise.           ~ L. Campagna

Very helpful, competent service!               ~ J. Brown

Elite was most helpful, quick response, very professional and courteous work staff.  

~ D. Shaw

I feel I've found a good garage to go to!               ~ M. Tanenbaum

Excellent service!              ~ P. O'Neil

Was extremely please with Service! I found them on the internet and so glad I did. Very friendly and accommodating.    ~ S. Finn      

I brought my daughter's 2001 VW Golf in to you with a bad ignition misfire. Was I ever pleasantly surprised when you called to tell me that the problem was a bad ignition coil. Then you informed me that this was a problem that was under a recall from VW and VW should fix it for free! I called the dealer, and yes, they fixed it for free! You could've done the job, charged me for it and pocketed the cash. Instead, you took the time to check for recalls and saved me hundreds! You have impressed me! Say hello to your newest customer.           ~ P. Burr

Thank you so much guys!' The mini is shifting effortlessly and running beautifully. 1st rate job at a fantastic price.... what more could any car owner want?   I've found my new garage!    ~ C. Bailey

My wife and I were so impressed by the knowledge of owner.    ~ A. Vendito

Great personnel explained everything to me. A very happy customer!     ~ M. Skades

Exceptional service!        ~ T. E. Hazelhurst

Always feel better when leaving knowing that the car has been thoroughly checked out and running properly.


Wednesday, 30-Jul-2014, Elite

This is the third time we have used the services here. The staff is friendly,

polite and professional. We will return for any other needs for our Volvo.

Thank you.


Wednesday, 23-Jul-2014, Elite

They have never let me down.  First class operation.

R. Pagano

Wednesday, 23-Jul-2014, Elite

I have had my car serviced at other repair shops but they never were able

to fix it properly. When I first went to Elite I met Mark and found him to be

extremely knowledgeable. Not only did he explain the problems, he took the

time to actually educate me as to what they were, and what they were going

to do to repair my car and why. I never had that kind of service anywhere. I

own a 2002 Volvo S80 and after having it repaired recently at Elite it is

running better than ever. You guys are great. I will definately recommend

Elite to my family, friends, and coworkers.

Ruth was wonderful as usual... Thanks for the ride to get my rental

The front service is always great. I'm never left with any questions. The

chauffeur option is a huge plus. The informative print outs are great. I trust

that the work is done right and for a fair price. The shop is clean and

organized. Thanks.

D. Shaw

Prompt attention to the problem, and very friendly and professional staff!

I completely trust Elite Auto. They do only the work that is required. For

instance, recently our engine light came on, and I dropped the car off

expecting to learn it was going to be an expensive fix. However, they called

me a couple hours later to say the problem was simply that the gas cap was

loose from the last time we filled the tank. And the best part was they didn't

charge me (I guess my embarrassment was payment enough!) In all

seriousness, they are the best!!

M. Kazarian

Very professiona and only provide needed repairs after consultation with

me about potential prices. I have been going here for years and they are

always very friendly and accommodating.

E. Jacques

Tuesday, 24-Jun-2014, Elite

I find them very responsive to appointments, to the point about what needs

to be done (Ruth is great explaining things) and prices are "within normal

range". I like that I can wait for the car for a quick oil change and they wash

the car when they are done- great for customer loyalty.

J. Friedman

Tuesday, 24-Jun-2014, Elite

Fantastic service! First of all every single person I spoke to, smiled, and

listened to what I had to say. Their customer services trainer is outstanding.

Second the work done to my car was exactly what I needed, no more and

no less at a very affordable rate. I came in to have the handle replaced on

my Sequoia's back hatch. The dealership down the street wanted $800 to

take apart the door and fix it. Elite did it for $250 and in less time. I am a

customer for life!

D. Baud

Sunday, 22-Jun-2014, Elite

Very good service and attention to the details. Determined the problem,

quoted the work to be done and scheduled the work for close future date.

C. Hanson

will alwas come back. I've given your card and highly recommended you to

friends and strangers.

As always very professional service. Work was performed as expected and

the car looked show room clean when I picked it up. Great job!

R. Silvia

Wednesday, 18-Jun-2014, Elite

Total respect and professionalism from all of the employees. My element

was looked through thoroughly and all needed repairs were explained

simply and in detail. The car was adjusted but not exactly to their

satisfaction, so they requested to keep it overnight to diagnose and correct it

further. Price was reasonable and to my surprise, the car was washed when

I picked it up. I have a new auto repair shop! Thanks for earning my trust

and the great work.

A. Deschamps

Friday, 30-May-2014, Elite

We brought our car to Elite Auto Repair based on a strong recommendation

from a family member. In my past experiences that kind of a

recommendation can lead to disappointment, not in this case however.

Excellent job, fair price and professional from beginning to end.
