Took in my 2012 F150 for diagnostics and a tune up, Ulmers identified every limiting issue and had them remedied fast and kept me in the loop every step of the way

Great place for repairs. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They stand behind their work. They are honest and get the job done right. Not the place if you want it done cheap, but the place if you want it done right. I'm not taking my car or truck any place else.

I would recommend Ulmer’s in Deer Park for your auto repair needs. They have great staff to assist with understanding and scheduling appointments. I was having AC and Water temperature gauge issues when I spoke with Dave. He saved me $300 on the estimate. The repairs were diagnosed and fixed correctly, including replacing a bad co2 sensor. Thank you Dave and staff for resolving a long term problem we were having with our 2016 Buick Enclave. Great job!!!

Dave and everyone at Ulmer's are excellent. Fair prices, nice attitude, shuttle service if needed. But on top of that, Dave was extremely honest with me about the issues regarding my car, even though it might have meant I go somewhere else for help. I am very glad I found them, and will be continuing as a customer from here on out.

Found out my jeep Cherokee was leaking antifreeze and took it to Ulmer’s for an inspection. Not only did they diagnose my problem which was a bad radiator but also found some other issues that would have cost me more money down the line. They completed all the repairs faster than I expected and they were very professional and answered all my questions about what they were doing. It was a bit pricey for all the repairs but when you receive good service and quality it’s to be expected. I received a warranty on the repairs which made me happy. In my opinion these are not backyard mechanics they are good at what they do and I will definitely return if I ever have any issues with any of my vehicles. Although I do have one complaint but I’m still giving them five stars…..usually whenever I’ve been to an auto repair shop when I agree to let them do the repairs they don’t charge me for the initial assessment of the vehicle and they did so I don’t agree with that aspect but all in all great work so far

I’m a new customer to Ulmer’s and so far I’m happy. I recently bought a used car. I took it to Ulmer’s for the bumper to bumper. Dave and crew were kind and respectful. They didn’t talk down to me because I’m female and they were willing to explain what I didn’t understand. They even gave me information about my car that I didn’t know. If anything goes wrong with my car, I plan to take it to Ulmer’s

Your service was great and a very efficient; however $42 for tire repair is outrageously expensive. I realize that everything has gone up perhaps even parts I also know that everybody has to get paid so I understand the cost. Increase but again $42 for a tire repair I don't know about that. Would I return to your services? I would have to seriously think about it. If other places are more expensive than what you charged me then I would probably be back but again it depends on the cost.

We had some basic maintenance done at Ulmers- our first experience there. They performed the work within the time period requested and were very polite. Also the office looked organized and clean! Glad to know about a maintenance place so close to our home.

Once again Ulmer's Auto care has given me exceptional service with no added mumbo jumbo or inflated costs. So convenient for my busy schedule with convenient drop off and pick up with my invoice emailed to me so I could pay online. Great followup as well. Better than the dealership any day! Very thorough inspection and great prices. My vehicles will not go anywhere else!

I cannot say enough about how great this shop is. Dave is one of the kindest and caring people that you will meet. He genuinely wants to do what is best for the customer, which is very rare especially when someone is not very knowledgeable about cars. He will also take time to educate the customer about the problem getting fixed and is extremely patient. He has my business, and he should have yours.

Ulmers did a wonderful time fixing my car. There was a lot that my car needed and they ensured it was all completed at the best price available. Dave even shuttled me home the first day and when my repairs went past that they provided me a loaner. A rare find in customer service, quality of work, and price.

I was probably like a lot of people when I came to car care: driving my car until something breaks and then scrambling to get it fixed. My wife, on the other hand is a fierce proponent of just taking her car to the dealership for service. In 2020 I found a car that I really like and began thinking about how to extend the life of the thing by --I know this sounds novel-- doing preventative maintenance. I knew Ulmer's had a good reputation so when I came time to have my brakes replaced I gave them a shot. Great experience. Shortly thereafter I stopped in for new tires. Another great experience. So when it came time to get major deferred maintenance done on my car, it seemed right to stick with Ulmer's. Their pricing is fair, they have to car done when they say they'll have it done, and they ever give you a courtesy car to drive while they work on your car. I hope they're around for a long time!

I was ready for that same ol neighborhood type feel that I got when it was Al's auto owned by Sean. I got a battery replacement. My battery itself was $250.00, and just to test my system with their diagnostic setup was $134.00. They gave me a coupon, which I did appreciate. The rest was time and tax. Without that coupon, it would have been a $500.00 bill for a battery swap. I know times are hard, and inflation is bad, but wow! By the way, it was 10 degrees, and I don't have heat in my garage or, of course, I would have done it. This was a case of lazy and cold that cost me. If you got the money, it's local and conveniently located.

I love this place! They’re respectful, thorough and don’t try to upsell me every time I bring my car in. If they discover a problem, they explain it, send pictures, and then let me decide if I want to address it at that time or not. What a breath of fresh air!

I've been having the same issue for over 2 years. I took it to the Honda dealership and they charged me for a diagnostic test but didn't find the problem. Ulmer's Auto Care found the problem and fixed it. They also provided me a loaner care free of charge to use while they were working on my vehicle.

2006 Mustang. I Had them inspect the beast and they found something early on that was pretty detrimental, could’ve kept going and charge me a full price for inspection. It Was going to be $500 something but they stopped there and called me and let me know and saved me over $400. Which I didn’t have a problem paying for. I needed a Thorough inspection with honest answers. Even to extent to losing money because of it I would say that’s integrity. No, this is the definition of integrity I think? Would definitely recommend PS they also gave me a loaner for three days which helped out a lot!great place.

Great service, couldn't find the electrical problem or maybe they did and didn't charge me.It starts again and the battery is staying charged. while I had it there they changed the oil and new tires.(They were due to be changed) And told me of some items that are due soon and I will be taking my SUV there for service to have these services completed.

Overall great experience! Very kind & honest; Dave helped me set my appointment over the phone & was there to assist day of for my routine oil change. I love that they will send you a text link of their inspection and include pictures & notes! Was an all day process but I had no where to be & understood considering it’s a small shop. I would definitely recommend!

OMG...I was so grateful and pleased with the respect, kindness and awesome service that I received from Deer Park Ulmer's and Dave.After leasing for over 20 years, decided to buy and was very leary being a single, senior female who knows nothing about cars. I was so thankful for the honesty, courtesy and care taken to make my car drive like new plus I had a "free loaner". By the way I was expecting a huge bill but I was pleasantly surprised with the final cost of parts and labor. It will be my pleasure to recommend Ulmer's to my friends, family and acquaintances for any car repair needs.Thank you and God Bless!Gerri Robinson

Quick service, great communication. You may be able to find cheaper service, but you get what you pay for. Ulmer's team are true professionals who know what they're doing. The repair to my Volvo XC/60 was somewhat complex, but the repairs were done expeditiously and they dropped the car off at my house.
