This is MY KINDA car care place! These gents are always polite, ready to help and LISTEN to your concerns about your vehicle. I've been taking my vehicle here over a year and am always pleased with the work. They work with my car insurance company and I don't have to worry about anything.
The folks at Ulmers have been a real pleasure to work with. I initially went to them for an engine repair which turned into an 8 month ordeal (due to supply shortages). They kept me in the loop throughout the entire process and took the time to explain all of my options when it came to repairing/replacing my engine. I'm really grateful for Cody and Max for their patience and helpfulness through it all.I've been back to Ulmers twice since the engine replacement and they have been nothing but pleasant and accommodating! As a younger woman, I've never felt so respected and heard at an auto repair shop. I could not recommend them more!
I found this shop in 2020 when I first started experiencing more major issues with my last car. They were always honest, always explained everything clear, and would even show me why my parts were faulty. I have had some bad experiences as a woman, and this place has never treated me any differently nor have they ever taken advantage. Now with my new vehicle, I have started experiencing issues. Not only did they take extra time to inspect the issue, but their loaners are also helpful. I will forever bring my vehicles here and always recommend them. Cody has some of the most amazing customer service, and Bob knows his cars. This place has helped me out alot, and I’m extremely grateful for their eagerness to always help and do the best they can do.
We've never had a single issue here or at the Salem location. We've always received very prompt and courteous service, the loaner cars make things painless, and they have an extremely gracious warranty on all the work they do. Highly recommended.
I didn't use this company my mother is in the process of having some work done but based on my mother's feedback this company seems to care about their customers. In the future I myself may use them for my automotive needs.
Cody was very helpful he explained everything to me so I would understand I liked the way they treated me knowing I was a woman I have been to alot of garages they take advantage of woman this place was great the price surprised me I will keep going and doing business with them thanks
So I'm new to the area..This team is Great. Cody is really great at what he does and I thank God for him and there team. They were there for me in my time of need. God will send you to places that will bless you. Thanks Ulmers for all you do.
I just want to share why I use Ulmer's in Southgate. I was an estimator at a nearby collision repair shop. I started sending cars I had in for collision repairs to Ulmer's for suspension repairs and alignments. Because I had so many experiences with them I can say that they are honest, knowledgeable, and professional.Cody, who was my point of contact, kept me up to date on vehicles and gave great advice on how to do the right repair based on what the vehicle needed. His level of service was exceptional.I trust Ulmer's Southgate so much that I began using them for my personal vehicles. Cody and Ulmer's are now my trusted mechanics and it gives me great piece of mind to know that they are ensuring the safety and reliability of my wife's, my daughter's and my vehicles.
We have been using this particular garage for all of our vehicle maintenance for at least 15 years. Just had our first experience with Ulmers who have taken over and we received the same exceptional service. They gave our Trail Blazer an oil change and a good once over. We needed a few additional repairs done and they were very transparent about the issue, the fix and the pricing estimate. This day in age, you need mechanics you can trust.
I was up north visiting last week when I had an unexpected brake issue. I called Glenn and Cody and without hesitation they told me to bring my car in right away. To my surprise, I was back on the road in four hours. The cost was more than fair. I am so appreciative of all Ulmers did to help me out. I would recommend them to absolutely anyone!!! Thanks to everyone there!
These guys are great. They Do great work, but also don’t try to up sell me on anything. In fact, they help me stay On budget by Telling me what is important for safety purposes that has to be done quickly, and then provide me a list of the next upcoming repairs that I will need in order of importance
We have been taking our cars here for years. It’s an honest shop. Women customers are treated with the same respect as men customers. Repairs are done at reasonable cost and in a timely manner. Their friendly service advisor, Glen, always explains things in a very clear manner. I’m very glad we have this shop near me!
I've been taking my cars to them for the past 7 years. They're great -- I once took in my car because the passenger side window was stuck -- I expected to end up with a big bill for a window motor -- the plug had come loose. I think they charged me $10.
Great customer service! My father in law, my husband and I have been taking our cars there. They have always been able to fix our cars quickly, plus they do very nice quality work at a very reasonable price! I would recommend them to my family and friends!
I agree with the other reviewers. Our entire family has used them for years and they are honest, reliable and pleasant to work with. When my elderly mother was alive, they even used to drive her home when she dropped off her car and pick her back up after the work was completed. Quite refreshing compared to the impartial attitude found in most chain establishments these days. Support local business!
Very honest people and fair prices. Took my son's car to have the timing belt changed and they told me it was recently done. They could have changed it...
