Ulmers Auto did a terrific job of listening to my situation. They communicated well during the process, and did an excellent job on my vehicle, and completed the job quicker than expected. I will be taking my vehicles back to them in the future!

I've been taking my cars to Ulmers for many years. The quality of their work is top notch. But even more important is that they're honest and give me the straight scoop about repairs. They've earned my business and I will continue to take my cars to them.

Great customer service including a ride to and from our home which was greatly appreciated. Multiple mechanical items and good understanding of what needed to be done through conversation by phone. We had been told the brakes needed repaired by another service, Turned out not to be true. Thank you Ulmers. We felt the cost for all that was done was reasonable.

I dropped my car off for a bumper to bumper service and I was driven home by Bob in their shuttle vehicle. Doug called me later to let me know that my car was ready, and he arranged for me to be picked up. I came in, and there were no surprises, the bill was exactly what we had agreed upon, and I checked out in moments and I was on my way. I am very satisfied with the service that I received, and while they were highly professional and business-minded, they were also extremely kind and caring. I truly recommend Ulmer's Auto Service and I will certainly use them for all of my auto needs in the future.

My 2013 For Taurus has an intermittent “Advanced Trac” alarm light. Took it to a Ford Dealer and was quoted $3609 for the repair. I was shocked. I took it to Ulmer’s in Milford. They determined the steering sensor needed recalibration, the cost was $178 including new windshield wipers. They are now my go to garage for future auto repair needs.

Staff was quick with an estimate and gave me trusted lead times so I knew when to expect repairs and return of my car. Was impressed with the detail given on estimates as well as the pictures to highlight areas of concern. The work I thought was needed turned out to be a non-concern but we were able to rank issues and create an action plan to prioritize repairs that fit my needs and budget.

Ulmer's Milford is truly phenomenal! After many, many poor experiences at my local dealership and a lot of money spent to Not fix my car I finally went to Ulmer's. They drove my car, diagnosed the problem and kept it until they were satisfied, then they kept it one more night so they could drive it again the next day cold just to be sure they had actually fixed it! Since then I have taken my car there many times and the service continues to be stellar. They are conscientious, courteous and dedicated. They clearly take a great deal of pride in the service they provide to their customers and they are good at what they do. I will never take my car to another shop. Ulmer's, you have a customer for life! Thank you!

Had break pads replaced on 2013 BMW. My break light would not turn off so I took my car back. They checked it out and determined that the light sensor they had installed was faulty. Ulmers replaced the sensor so the work was done satisfactorily but it took 2 days rather than 1.

Ulmers is the best in town! I feel that this is an honest, efficient, reliable place to take my car. Friendly and I never feel taken advantage of. The only problem is that it’s hard to get in without scheduling ahead. However completely worth it if you have the flexibility and the time.

This Team has been taking really great care of my 20 year old VW Jetta and keeps it running! It's my only means of transportation, so anytime I have to bring it in for service I'm provided with a free loaner car, which is so important to me and very much appreciated! The repairs are reasonably priced as well. I know the parts for my car are more expensive, so I always plan on spending more anyway, but I definitely appreciate some of the nice discounts I have received. I've been coming here for a while now and can't complain. The service is exceptional and the Team is a very nice and friendly bunch of guys that treat you with professionalism and care. I also like the inspection report they send with pictures of my car, so I can see for myself what needs to be done. Overall if they had 10 stars I'd give 11. Thanks guys!

Ulmer’s has been servicing my vehicle for the past two years. I find them to be knowledgeable, honest and very helpful. On my last visit they found I needed a replacement part which took a couple days to complete. I was surprised and relieved when I was offered a loner vehicle to use. The work was completed on time and (so far) my car is running better than ever. Thanks to Doug for taking the time to answer all of my questions!

Car died at the worse possible time... in heavy traffic leaving a Bengals game. AAA towed it to my favorite garage, the fantastic Ulmer's in Milford. Doug and crew diagnosed it as a dead alternator, replaced it with a genuine Mercedes part, and got it back to me in a very timely fashion even with their heavy work load. Price was very reasonable and could not ask for better quality of repair. As always, Doug, Jason, Bob and everyone connected with Milford Ulmers is personable, professional and goes over the top to help their customers. As always VERY pleased with everything and everyone connected with Milford Ulmer's.

Ulmer's is the auto care that I have used for about 15 years. They are thorough and knowledgeable. Most importantly, I trust them to keep my car running in top form. The bumper-to-bumper service that I got last week has allowed me to take a 1500 mile trip with confidence that I'll complete it without any car issues.

I was extremely pleased with the whole process at Ulmer's. The only thing I questioned was the price of the services that were done. I was accustomed to having a close friend take care of my car for years, and I know labor is a large part of costs. So with that said, I trust the business in Milford, I was dealt with in a very professional way, and I have no complaints what so ever about my maintenance completed. I can actually tell the difference in my car! Thank you to my local business! I would refer you to others!!!

They are always awesome! This time- I had a water leak somewhere and they happened to have the “Water Doctor “ coming there anyways- he looked and fixed in 2 minutes and I wasn’t even charged! At the same time- they found a weak battery and it was under warranty- so they fixed- FREE. And they were having a special on brakes pads which I needed- so got that free. WOW- I expected to pay at least 50-75% MORE than what I did! Always professional and specific with what’s wrong- been going for years! Missy M

We originally went to Ulmer's to fix a flat tire (first time visitors), but they quickly realized the tire wasn't going to be salvageable. We decided to buy a new set, and had some other things fixed while it was in the shop. We appreciated them working us in since we didn't have an appointment, and even though we spent a lot, it was all necessary, and Ulmer's (we worked directly with Jason) was great at keeping us informed on the status of the vehicle from beginning to end (2 days total). They definitely gained our trust, and we will be repeat customers I'm sure!

I have been really impressed with Ulmer's after having my vehicle serviced (I've got another in the shop as I am writing this). When I first walked in and was waited on by Jason, I felt like they cared and were genuinely listening to me about the issue with my Mustang (I explained how codes were showing my EGR was malfunctioning, and I also mentioned that my exhaust manifolds had a history of leaking). I was also really surprised at how quickly they were able to schedule me for service: I went in on a Tuesday and they scheduled me for Friday.I asked for a thorough initial evaluation and they did exactly that, calling me very soon afterwards and explaining the report (which was linked via text). Then, they ended up completing all the repairs very early in the afternoon on Thursday, a day earlier than expected.I've had no issues with my car since and it runs better than ever. I've had a similarly pleasant and professional experience with the other car currently being worked on.One big thing that has stood out to me about Ulmer's is how prompt they are and how good their communication is. They've kept me up to date on everything that's happening and make sure to be as informative as possible.Two other significant points are their FREE shuttle service when I had no way to get home, something I think is really amazing especially for the elderly or those without family nearby, as well as the fact that someone in the family called me a couple days after my Mustang was finished to see how it was doing. That to me shows they really care about their customers.Can't recommend the place enough, I will always do business with them as long as I'm in the area.
