Got our brakes fixed a couple of weeks ago. Fair price, car runs a lot better, and seems like a good job to me (not an that covert for sure though...). Anyway, will come back (hopefully u don't need to though)!

Replaced my alternator for $550 all in. A little expensive, but they were prompt and communicated with me the whole time. I would totally return here for service in future.

You definitely get what you pay for! I'm a little OCD when it comes to keeping my cars clean. I wash them once a week and have them detailed semi-annually. These guys did an excellent job. You maybe asking is a car detail really worth 200 bucks? I think these guys go far beyond all expectations. I've had my cars detailed dozens of times and I know crap when i see it. In the past, I've picked up my cars from other detailers only to find spots on that were not clay barred, wax that wasn't buffed out or areas that weren't wipe down. I was a little skeptical going to a new garage, but it was well worth it. I picked my car up today and every inch was immaculate. JUST LIKE NEW. Thanks Chris! You and your team did an excellent job!!!!

We had a bit of a mix up when I got my car back and they went above and beyond to compensate which I really, really appreciated.Regarding the cleaning - I got the interior cleaning and they did a great job. There were some spots that I went and fixed up after, but that's just me being meticulous.

I broke down in Southie and was towed to E&S. Joe was upfront about the cost (got a second quote and his was cheaper) and completed the work within a day!

Jamie StewardGoogle Review

Joe did some major work to my engine last summer and he stood behind his work and had to replace a faulty fuel pump two times, which he did at no cost to me. I have found him to be a very responsible mechanic. I have since had more work done on my car, which is an older model, and will continue to use him and refer him as one of the best mechanics I have had the privilege of working with.

Just took my 2012 VW Tiguan there to get inspected for a new sticker. I was nannying at the time and came with my 2.5 year old. The owner took me right away, was kind, polite, and efficient. I was out of there in no time! And the 2.5 year old even had a fun time with it! I'll be back next year!

Meaghan C.Yelp Review

Situation: Oil Change, Full Synthetic

Cost: $89.95

- Seemed a bit steep,
- Considering I usually do this myself, the oil is under $30 and filter is $8 for a 'premium' filter, not the $3-$6 ones they use.
- I brought in my own filter, so the price was reduced to $79.95 which I appreciated, but I still thought was steep.
- Listen I'm old school, I love a garage you can count on, but not having any pricing or signs anywhere is a little bit too old school for me.

PROS: they committed to a time I could bring it by (during lunch) and do it, which no other place in Southie would do so hey, that's worth the extra couple bucks! Thanks guys!

Cons: I think their synthetic oil change pricing is high (I researched it, it is basically the highest), however in a pinch it is what it is! So that's that.

Service: very good, nice guys, did what they said when they said they'd do it.

FEEDBACK: If you are going to charge a premium for an oil change, offer to rotate the tires like the other places do? Just a thought.

Thanks Joe and team, I appreciate the service.

T R.Yelp Review

Looked at a BMW M3 for sale here. Costas and George were very helpful. Car was in great shape and priced reasonably. They have a good selection of pre owned European cars and SUVs. Worth a look if your in the market for a decent car.


Great shop! Joe is friendly and no-nonsense when it comes to car maintenance. Prices are very reasonable, quick turnaround, couldn't ask for more. The shop is an easy walk to/from the Broadway T stop, which makes it very convenient for me to drop my car off, go to work, and pick it up at the end of the day. Highly recommend E+S.

Charlie H.Yelp Review

Joe is a good guy and very trustworthy. He is a straight shooter and tries to find the best way to save you the most amount of money and go out of his way to accommodate you. His prices are reasonable, quality of his services are great and its always a fast turnaround. I moved from Southie to the Back Bay 2 years ago and still go out of my way to use his services.

Ed G.Yelp Review

Joe was in a situation where he could have made a profit, but instead worked with us and got us to where we needed to be. Thanks for the help with the starter Joe, we got home safe and really appreciate it.

We found him straightforward and honest. If I ever had car trouble again in the area, I will remember Joe.

Krissy C.Yelp Review

I, too, don't know why anyone would give E&S a bad review. I've been here a couple of times now - only for oil changes - and they are incredibly polite and did the changes while I waited. The last time when the car was on the lift they showed me that I needed new brakes. I already knew this but we are buying a new car soon. He told me it would be OK to drive it in the meantime since it would be only a couple of months and what to watch for. I also had a discussion with about his opinions of different cars we are considering purchasing. He did all this and I know he was really busy.

June C.Yelp Review

I've lived in South Boston for 6 years now and this is the only place I'll go for car inspections. As a young woman, it's intimidating to go to an auto shop and this place always makes me feel at ease. Everyone is pleasant, professional and efficient!!!

Amber D.Yelp Review

I've brought my Wrangler here twice for repairs and they have exceeded my expectations each time. The job is done well, in a timely manner and for a reasonable price...not to mention the guys are all very nice and courteous. Will continue to bring my vehicle here when needed and recommend that other do as well.

Kevin B.Yelp Review

I'm actually surprised there is a bad review of this place! I have taken my cars to Joe at E&S for years. First was a Beetle and now I have a Jetta (the Jetta is new, so there aren't so many issues with it...yet). I can't say enough good things about these guys. They are very fairly priced, professional and honest. They will explain in detail everything that was fixed or needs to be fixed. They treat their customers with respect and get the job done in a very timely manner. They have helped me out more times than I can count. I promise you won't be disappointed with the customer service or the work that comes out of E&S!

Allison H.Yelp Review

Joe and his father? Took great care of me. I used to be a mechanic in a previous life, so I like to think I know what I'm talking about...

Anyhow they did a top notch job on my Honda. Checking the caliper and ensuring that there was little resistance. They grinded down the wear indicator a little bit to ensure no squeaks later on. And they were generous with anti*seize.

Highly recommended.

Brendan S.Yelp Review

I took my car here to get inspected and it was great. The guy was friendly, quick, and it was open early (which was hard to find because apparently everything in Southie opens at 8:30, which if you're trying to get to work on time, isn't very convenient!). It was cash only, but there was an ATM there, which was easy enough. Took me about 5-6 minutes to get out of there, awesome!

Laura P.Yelp Review

I 100% agree with Mark, but it could possibly be because I recommended this mechanic to Mark's lovely fiancee. :) I love E&S Auto, and am sad that I moved from the Boston area and no longer have a trusted mechanic. During my years in Boston, I had a 11 year old car that every now and then would require an extensive amount of work. The folks at E&S are 100% reliable, honest and provide more than fair pricing. As Mark stated they will explain every detail of what they are charging and why, and they'll show you your old/replaced parts and show you why it needed to be replaced. As a female, who doesn't know much about cars, these are the guys to go to.

Jill D.Yelp Review

A good mechanic is hard to come by. I highly recommend Joe at E&S. He will always look at your car and call with an assessment before beginning any work. He will show you any parts he removed and the new ones he put in. Incredibly reasonable prices. Best mechanic ever.
