It’s THE BEST car service I’ve been in years. Came here to change oil on 2016 Smart Fortwo, this car is not a common visitor in car services in NYC, so I made sure to bring the 8mm square tool to open the oil pan. The oil change took 10 minutes and they also checked breaks and suspension on my car (both were in great shape).
I was visiting Brooklyn when i had problems with my car. Louis was recommended to me by a friend. He took my car in the same day and did a great job at a very reasonable price. He is friendly, knows what hes doing and his prices are more than fair. I recommend him highly.
My brakes gave out and I needed to get them fixed immediately. I chose Ambato because of favorable reviews and I am glad I did. Luis told me to come right over, he fixed my brakes, no nonsense, fair price, and it was ready for my commute home. I feel as though I have a new friend. Ill go back.
I all of a sudden had some issues with my shocks so I brought my car to Ambato based on reviews. They were so fast, they took my car right away and it was done the same day. He also called before he did any work to give me a breakdown of costs and labor, and he showed me the parts that were bad and what parts he put in the car to fix it. Excellent customer service.Only tip for customers is pay in cash unless you want sales tax added to your bill - added additional $80 to my bill because I paid with card.
Ive been seeing Luis for years because hes the most honest and fair mechanic Ive ever had. I have an old car that runs well, but needs small things done frequently. I had a part replaced last year that need to be replaced again 13 months later. The original one should have lasted longer but the warranty only covered it for a year so I thought I would just have to eat the cost again. Luis didnt think this was fair, so he got the replacement part for me and only charged me for labor of putting it in! More recently someone hit my parked car leaving the bumper hanging off (but not quite falling off completely). Luis originally told me that I would need to go to a body shop, but when I told him that it didnt need to look pretty, just safe, he said he would take a look and wound up fixing it for free! I cant even imagine how much a body shop would have charged me. Over the last few years hes done a few very generous things like this that show me he really cares about his customers and running a good business. Hes very nice and treats me and my car well!
Called 3.45 pm on a monday afternoon to request if there was time enough for my car to be seen. was told i would be able to be seen at 4.45. got out at 5.45 after an oil change (including top-up on fluids, tire air pressure checked and topped) as well as Louis fixing up the front left bumper cover of my car (was loose after hitting a pothole). very polite. knocked off a star as i have been to cleaner mechanics, but overall would recommend and would come back.
I give it a star because it cant be helped, the worst of the experience I went to this workshop to put some new shock absorbers on my car, it turns out that I returned before 30 days because without giving any abnormal use to it they no longer served when I explained it to me They said that I will return the next day and without making the slightest review they tell me that it is something else and that it is 400 dollars more but with a little frofessional attitude, and without answering me for the guarantee of 3 months as I had. I do not recommend this place since they do not see you as a customer but as a coin machine

Hands down my favorite auto shop. I made the mistake of going somewhere else after I move, but now I’m driving across brooklyn to go to Ambato. I trust Luis and his crew completely. Work is always done expertly AND quickly. They are also always careful not to do unnecessary work, and have always warned me about potential risks ahead of time. And the shop cat is as handsome as they come.
This will be the only mechanic Ill go to in New York! Was recommended to Ambato by a friend and Luis and his team did not disappoint. Such a friendly and professional experience, didnt feel like I was ripped off. Highly recommend to anyone looking for car repairs. :)
Had them fix the AC in my car. They were very nice. Had a leak in my compressor. They showed me their work, showed me the leek. Great communication, told me the cost before the work. Had it fixed fast.
Luis is the best. He is fast, kind, knowledgeable and reasonably priced. He also knows all the best specialists in the city and if you have a computer or foreign car problem he can point you to the best place.
Always honest, reliable, and caring. Our car runs so well after each visit! They are truly the best.
Smoothest car inspection I ever had. Kind, quick, and honest- will definitely be returning for any future car needs.
Nice and friendly guy, fast and affordable state vehicle inspection.
Great mechanics helped me with my inspection and great customer service 👍🏾
Avoid at all costs. Worst experience I’ve ever had with a mechanic / owner. Complete dishonesty. Management tried to sell me $600 worth of brake work that after I pressed him he admitted I didn’t need at all.
Ambato has the best service of any mechanic I’ve ever used. Luis is incredibly kind and helpful and has cut me a break on parts when I needed major service done. He does a great job in explaining issues in layman’s terms and I’ve never felt taken advantage of. Even when he’s very busy I get my car back extremely quickly. I won’t go anywhere else. Also 10/10 on the shop cat.
