I was quoted $2K at a dealership and brought my car instead to Northend Wrench. They gave me excellent advice and it cost me $600. I can always trust Northend to be fair and honest- what a relief! They are my go-to mechanic now- so glad I found them!
Scott Tulodzieski, 09/06/2019
Northend Wrench has been always honest and has always done quality work on my vehicles.

Been a customer for years. Always great and professional service and reasonable prices.
Joanne Ingledue, 08/08/2019
Northend Wrench is the best auto repair shop in Central Ohio. I have been using Dave Wenger for over 30 years. He is thorough, reliable, and most of all honest. Because he is so good, he has a wait list for appointments but rest assured it is worth the wait. I will wait for Northend Wrench to assure my safety with my vehicle.
Don Story, 08/08/2019
Always reliable, efficient, and trustworthy!

Joanne Ingledue, 07/20/2019
My husband and I started using Dave Wenger at Northend Wrench when we first moved here to Columbus from Northeast Ohio in the 1980?s, having been referred to Dave by my then Co-worker, Dr. Jessie Harris, who described him as a very honest and talented young man.. Dave continued to work on our cars and my husband always told me if I were ever left without his guidance to lean on Dave for honest advice. We were gone from the area for over two decades but when I found myself in a position of need, I immediately called Dave. As always the work was completed in a professional manner for a fair compensation and I continue to value the fact that I know where to go for the BEST service in Metropolitan Columbus area. This recent service was completed by Sean who took the time to go over every step of the repair with me.

Noreen Benedict, 04/14/2019
Welcoming to this newcomer to Columbus and MGB owner whose little British car needed a once over before the drive season begins. Super friendly staff that proved honest up-front info and thorough, at a reasonable cost. Who could ask for more than that? Not me! One suggestion, add Little British Car to your website. Well, if you want a ton of business because Columbus LBC repair shops are hard to find. Thanks Northend Wrench. New loyal customer.
Frank/Angela Kozarich, 04/11/2019
Went in without an appointment because I had a slow leak in my tire. The guys fixed my tire quickly, cheerfully, and at a reasonable price. I wasn't even late for work! They are truly customer service first!
Kathleen Lewis, 04/05/2019
Always get great service in a timely manner.
Melanie Walker, 04/05/2019

Pj Hall, 03/08/2019
These guys are the best. When I bought my used Mercedes C230 this shop was recommended to me by a Mercedes enthusiast who has been working on his own cars for most of his life. They have a reputation for working on foreign and high end vehicles and I always stare at the amazing cars they have up in the lifts while I'm filling out paperwork. They are true professionals. More like car doctors with wrenches. I prefer them over the dealership. Thanks for the care and attention to detail every single time.
Scott Tulodzieski, 02/22/2019
Outstanding professional trustworthy service.
Steve Laudon, 02/21/2019

I have recommended this shop to many friends and co-workers over the past 18 years. Dave, Mark and Shaun are extremely friendly and helpful. They quickly get your car back on the road after it needs routine maintenance or an unexpected repair. This is the place for you if you?re looking for automotive experts you can trust with your car AND your wallet.

Jennifer/Jeff Grabmeier, 07/23/2018
The Northend Wrench is so reliable, and when I've stopped in with a Check Engine light on or in need of some oil, they've checked things out right on the spot and even put the oil in for me. They know their stuff, too.
Ken True, 07/06/2018
Northendwrench is superior in every possible way. The management and staff are very friendly and highly professional. I?m greatful to have a local service provider and I will continue to remain a loyal customer for the care of my Porsche. Northendwrench is the only Place that I will ever entrust my car for care.
Frank Petrella, 07/02/2018
When you think about it, you place a lot of faith and trust in your mechanic and his/her skill and honesty. First of all, you entrust your life to them as a poor repair could result in a crash and, secondly, your vehicle is likely the most costly investment that you own, outside of your home. It needs to be properly cared for! I have worked with a lot of mechanic shops in my lifetime but Northend Wrench is top of the list. They have managed to bring my 63-year old Porsche back to life and (well, perhaps) given it even better care than I have! David is an expert on vintage German and understands the quirks of the cars. Mark is always there to track down what is needed or to field questions and Sean is an absolute pleasure to work with. They are honest and forthcoming about which repairs are necessary and which would be nice to do?but do not pose a risk to the vehicle or the passengers. I am about to entrust them with my Hyundai Santa Fe prior to a 1500-mile drive across the US and know that everything will be done correctly. I won?t have to worry that a mechanical system is going to fail and strand me in the middle of the desert southwest, a hundred miles from any assistance. Northend Wrench is the best!
Sharonah Laemmle, 05/31/2018
The people at North End Wrench are a pleasure to work with. I trust that they would not advise work that is not necessary. They always do a good job and I'm really glad to have them to take my car to.
Rick Rick, 05/31/2018
The North End Wrench guys have always been polite and responsive to me. They do great work on my truck at a fair price. I will be using them for sure going forward.
Marilyn Sydow, 05/24/2018
I think Northend Wrench does a great job.
Tom Kelly, 05/24/2018
They are the best they do the repairs right the first time they keep the customer informed
Keith/Jane Beveridge/Butler, 05/20/2018
Shop did a great job, kept me informed, and charged a fair price.
Tina Agee, 05/11/2018
This has to be one of the very best mechanic shops in town. These guys know their stuff and they do great honest work at very honest rates. All of the guys are super friendly too! I have already recommended several friends to them and my husband & I will never take our cars anywhere else as long as they are in business!!
John Herbert, 05/11/2018
The work -- diagnosing an engine management computer error and replacing a faulty sensor -- was done properly, on time and on budget. Dave and Mark are a pleasure to work with. I recommend them highly.

Dave and Mark are real pros.
Chuck Krieg, 03/29/2018
"HONESTY, INTEGRITY, PROFESSIONALISM" ..descriptive terms thrown around like promises in an election year. Well I am happy to say that all this and more is alive and well at THE NORTHEND WRENCH! My recent experience there with repair service done AS PROMISED, was on time, succesful in that the car runs beautifully, and was priced fairly. I recommend this organization to anyone looking for good old-fashioned quality!! C.R.Krieg, and a happy 99 Mercedes diesel!
Bruce/Emily Pickering, 03/29/2018
Service was prompt and at a reasonable cost! Doesn't get any better than that.
Tim Stokes, 03/29/2018
Dave is the straightest shooter, the plainest dealer, the most honest Abe known to me in the auto repair and maintenance business. I would give the NEWrench 6stars, but there limits to everything. Thenks guys for over 35 years of excellent care. Tim S.

Best garage in Columbus!
Jamikah Green, 03/03/2018
Being a first time customer I was very very impressed with the care and level of professionalism displayed by the shop. My BMW caught fire under the hood and I had to find a shop to have it towed to almost immediately. I had spoken with Acceleration on high street whom was booked and recommended North End Wrench as an alternative. When I called, I was put on the tentative schedule but my vehicle was seen the day after it was towed. I was given a diagnosis and able to make the necessary steps to get my car to MAG after discovering the fire was caused by a recall all in less than 3 days. I would highly recommend this facility and I will be going to North End Wrench for most of not all of my future work.
Iggy Galli, 02/22/2018
The North End Wrench team is friendly, they do great work at a reasonable price and complete the work in a timely fashion. I will continue to put my cars in the hands of Dave and his team.
Annete Durbin, 02/15/2018
I started using Northend Wrench because several of my clients mentioned them in passing. Everyone raved. They are so good at what they do, and I trust them because of their reputation with people I know well.
Daniel Simmons, 01/18/2018
The guys at the Northend always, always do great work, they are honest, knowledgeable and fair. They treat you really well. thanks guys!
Cheryl/Bob Graffagnino, 01/11/2018
I truly cannot say enough good things about Northend Wrench. They are professional, timely and just all around an outstanding business. I highly recommend that you take your car here for service!
Matt/Linda Sherman, 01/04/2018
We would not take our cars anywhere else!
Linda Jackson, 01/04/2018
I've been a customer of Northend Wrench since 2010. I appreciate the availability of a loaner car, and even more important, being told in advance when future repairs/replacements will be needed to my 2005 Toyota Highlander. If there seems to be something really, really serious going on, I've been told to bring it in the same day. (Fortunately what I once thought was an "out of oil" light was actually a tire air pressure light! lol) I've also gone to neighborhood shops for minor oil changes, and when I've returned to Northend Wrench for subsequent oil changes, errors were found due to the neighborhood shop oil change (too much oil added, and other minor issues). Northend Wrench is 20 minutes from my house, but their professional attitude, fair prices, and excellent care of my vehicle has influenced me to stick with them. Linda Jackson
Mike Stoner, 12/28/2017
Knowledgeable and great mechanics!
Matthew Favret, 12/14/2017
The best and most honest place to have your vehicle serviced and or repaired.
Tim Timmons, 11/30/2017
Quite simply, the most Honest shop in town. Have kept my 2000 Honda Accord on the road for 17 yrs, that includes making it through 3 teenage boys! The man at the front desk is always so nice and the staff is knowledgeable beyond belief. They are also very nice to my 84 yr old Father and take the time to chat with him while he waits ?old school? for his Lexus to be serviced. Will recommend to anyone!!
Diane Damico, 11/16/2017
We know we can trust and rely on Northend Wrench, giving us peace of mind about our car care.
Doug Greenleaf, 11/14/2017
Top notch service from Dave and his team. I have been a customer since 2004 and will continue being a customer.
Bob Cody, 11/01/2017
Best mechanics in the City of Columbus, bar none.
Aaron-Theresa Snow, 10/30/2017
Great shop!!! We have 3 minis and take them all to Sean to work on. He is great fixing them and even letting us know what needs immediately fixed and what can wait. Would recommend this shop for anyone who need their car repaired by honest reliable mechanic.
Kathleen Gordon, 10/26/2017
Reliable,friendly service every visit. Would not take my car anywhere else.
Doug Greenleaf, 10/26/2017
As always, excellent service.
Mitch Deminski, 10/19/2017
There's no one else I trust with my 56 Chevy. They always look out for what is best for the car at a fair price. If you want your classic car worked on by people who care, go to Northend Wrench!
Ron Price, 10/13/2017
The experts at the Northend Wrench have been working on my cars over twenty years now! They're the best in town--you'll get an honest and accurate assessment of what your car needs, and they'll do it right, every time.
John Tolle, 09/28/2017
As always, perfect service from everyone.
Gene Milhoan, 08/31/2017
They worked on my 1964 Corvette and had no problem with the old technology. It is a very friendly and professional garage.
Joe Juratovac, 08/26/2017
Although our 2004 Jetta is a tired, used vehicle, and not nearly as fun to work on as many of the performance and classic cars we see at Northend Wrench, we always get a fair shake from Mark and his team. While investigating a potential suspension issue on the front, they looked over the car and found a broken spring on the rear. We find that they are fair in their assessment of the vehicle and it's needs, and are not looking to identify unnecessary repairs. Our daughter drives this car and is moving out of the house soon, so it was reassuring to get a thorough look-over on the car, as getting it serviced will be more challenging once she is living closer to downtown.
Adam Cohen, 08/18/2017
I thought Northend Wrench did a great job communicating to me what need to be fixed on my Porsche and completed the work in the timely fashion. I would recommend Northend Wrench to anyone who has a German car.
Tim/Susan Beachy, 08/17/2017
Northend Wrench is simply the best. Competent, personable, and most important - HONEST!
Mark Stolly, 08/17/2017

FULLY COMPETENT AND REASONABLY PRICED! I SHALL RETURN!!!
Doug Greenleaf, 07/24/2017
Excellent service, great staff and easy to get in & out quickly.
Christina Athas, 07/06/2017
The folks at Northend Wrench have always been fantastic to work with. I've been a loyal customer for years and even my fiance was so impressed with the way I was treated during a previous experience that he plans to take his car there when it next needs work. Communication is always good, the work is always quality, and I've always felt that their interactions with me have been honest, which is important to me. There are tons of mechanics that are more convenient for me, but I always choose to take my car to Northend Wrench.
Dave Marino, 06/15/2017
Best car repair ever!
Andy/Cathy Steinman, 05/04/2017
Dave and crew are the best! Been going to Dave for over 25 years for all my maintenance, repairs and modifications. When you see a repair shop filled with enthusiasts cars, you know you've found a great mechanic!
Ed Salo, 04/27/2017

Tom Kelly, 03/31/2017
This is the one place to have your car serviced and know that your car was fixed right at a fair price.k
Steve Warren, 03/28/2017
Two experiences with these guys concerning small issues with my car. Even though the repairs were minor/small issues, they gave me top-notch service both times and have definitely shown me that they care more about the customers convenience and making sure that your car is repaired correctly. Not sure if it is standard practice for the company but both times I have been in, the technician has come out and explained exactly what is going on with my car. I'll be using them for any work on my car including an alignment installation of four new tires very soon.
Tom Needles, 03/16/2017
Dave and Mark continue to be responsive to my needs and I have every confidence that they do a terrific job in terms of the quality of their mechanical work. Tom
Melody Davis, 03/09/2017
When we were in car shopping mode, Dave's expert advice and thorough exams helped us buy with confidence. Couldn't have done it without him. Thanks Dave!
Emerin Hilts, 03/09/2017
Excellent customer service and a fantastic fix!
Rob/Laura Carr, 03/08/2017
The folks are Northend Wrench are skilled and trustworthy. We are always happy with their work.
Paul Anderson, 03/02/2017
I recently had a problem with my antique car that required a tow. NEW took the car on very short notice and, along with the maintenance issue that required work, they also did a couple other items that I added to the list. Kudos. Since I started bringing the car there last year, I think I can say they are trustworthy. Dave and Mark are good communicators, which makes the experience even better. There are good mechanics out there who don't have good people skills, but the guys at NEW are technically proficient and keep you informed and will address your concerns. They don't just seem to be a car repair shop, they genuinely seem to like what they do. They are car guys.
Sheri Deerhake, 02/18/2017
Honest & straightforward!
Chris Bruzzese, 02/09/2017

Excellent service! They are the best shop around. professional and great at what they do!
Melody Davis, 12/22/2016
Usually the shop is not open on weekends, but when my car broke down on Saturday, the shop was illuminated when the tow arrived with my car. Dave graciously provided a loaner car immediately and I was on my way again! I was accommodated throughout the diagnosis of the odd presentation of my car's problem and repair later in the week. I love their service!
Our response: Thanks Melody! We try to make the unexpected repairs as painless as possible!
Denise Green, 12/08/2016
Excellent overall customer service. I highly recommend this establishment.

Steve Laudon, 11/04/2016
In an age of "fast in and out service car service" coupled with outrageous rip-off prices, The North End Wrench stands tall with it's highly trained staff, wonderful service, and fair prices. Finding a place to take your "baby" is important, and THIS place is the real deal. I can't say enough about how pleased I am to know I've found THE perfect place to service my MINI. The thing I like best is their HONESTY and INTEGRITY. 5 stars to my favorite car servicing spot in the city.
Roxanne Bullock, 11/03/2016
Timely, friendly, dependable. Thanks for the maintenance update. Car rides and drives wonderfully. Appreciate the door fix.
Mary Ann Silagy, 10/25/2016
I appreciate Northend Wrench's expertise and approachability. They answer my questions without making me feel stupid. They're not the closest shop to me by far, but are the ones I trust with all major diagnostics and repairs.
William Vedra, 10/13/2016
Thank you. What a difference the alignment made! Pleasure to drive
Tim Montague, 10/06/2016
Always friendly people and great service!
Rj Lemaster, 10/06/2016
Love these guys; no bullsh*t, they listen to your situation and do what you need. I purchased a 2005 Audi A8 and had them check it after my local mechanic did some diagnosis work couldn't do the job. These guys inspected the car, gave me a prioritized list of things that needed to be done, and completed the initial repairs under the estimated cost.
David/Kim Hollingshead, 10/06/2016
Great communication and quick service. The price of repair was reasonable and the car is now running great! I will definitely be using Northend Wrench for any future maintenance and repairs.

Having a mechanic you can trust is invaluable when you are not so mechanically inclined. Dave and staff have always been up front, honest, timely, courteous, willing to take us in for inspections or quick assessments on weird noises. They always have a loaner car ready for me without charge other than to replace the gas used. His service is not discounted, but you get what you pay for and peace of mind is worth every penny.
Rich Grunenwald, 08/18/2016
Great service and fair pricing!
Kathleen Lewis, 08/04/2016
The best.....so glad they are here and sooooo knowledgable.
Rich Grunenwald, 07/21/2016
Great job fixing AC and heater fan issue. Done on time at estimate.
Bob Cody, 07/14/2016
The BEST auto repair and maintenance business in Central Ohio, bar none. The most trustworthy auto repair shop you will ever find.
Our response: Appreciate that Bob!
Edy Degood, 07/07/2016
My older car (7 yrs) was starting to sound like an old car with lots of creaking sounds. I thought I'd have to live with it but not so, the guys figured out what was loose and now I have mush quieter ride! I always feel better after the guys take care of my car because they tell me how the breaks, tires, etc are doing. Thanks guys!
Our response: Thanks Edy. Enjoy that quiet drive!
Stephanie Frost, 06/09/2016
Addressed a problem with my traction. Was still under the warranty from initial installation. Problem went away. Thank you.
Rob Laughlin, 06/08/2016
Thankyou North End Wrench! your expert knowledge makes me feel confident when youi diagnose my my cars. Your personal service means everthing in an age of too many levels of bureaucrcy! I have and will always feel comfortable refering friends and family to North End Wrench.
Rob/Laura Carr, 06/01/2016
Northend Wrench has our absolute confidence. Good work, fair prices, and fantastic people.

Michael Penna, 05/26/2016
These guys are great. Mark was constantly in contact with me letting me know the status of the work they were doing. The best part... (though highly unlikely, I had luck on my side that day), they quoted me a price which was much more reasonable than other quotes I'd received, and after they got it all apart, they noticed they didn't need to replace "everything" they thought they did. So it actually saved me about 300 bucks! I'll forever use these guys in the future for work on my vehicles. Class acts, A+ service and super friendly.
Mike Krajnak, 05/19/2016
I trust Northend Wrench to tell me the truth and only do what is necessary. I originally had A/C service scheduled at another repair shop, but when I saw that the Northend price was comparable, I switched and had Northend do the A/C service. I am pleased with the result!
Martha Adams, 05/13/2016
Very happy and satisfied with work down on my car. North end Wrench was recommended to me by a friend. I needed a place to take my car where the owner and mechanics would be honest and professional! Mark was especially helpful and listened to me explain my car issues. Thank you for a positive experience.
Our response: Thanks Martha, we appreciate the positive feedback!
Sheri Deerhake, 05/12/2016
Quickly and efficiently helped me out when the alternator went haywire on my Pilot. I highly recommend them for both quality of work and customer service- something I don't often do for mechanics because most tend to talk down to me because I am a woman. You will find none of that here! I will go back!
Our response: Thanks Sheri!
Brenda Wright, 05/05/2016
I greatly appreciate the good service I get from Northend Wrench. They have a great work ethic and are trustworthy. Clintonville is fortunate to have this business in its locale.
Our response: Thanks Brenda, we appreciate that!
Melody Davis, 04/23/2016
We have been customers for almost 30 years. We keep coming back because Dave treats us like family. The added attention to detail and open honest communication keeps us on track to budget accordingly with fewer surprises. Loaner cars for the price of gas used is so convenient while getting my car repaired. We couldn't be more satisfied!
Our response: Thanks for the kind words Melody!
Travis Palm, 04/14/2016
Honest and nolagable. Old picutures on the walls. There's a feeling of pride and history. I liked it.
Rich Grunenwald, 04/08/2016
Work done as scheduled and at a reasonable price on my 2001 Corvette. Always a shop I can trust.
Bob Cody, 04/07/2016
Absolutely the best and most trustworthy mechanics I have ever dealt with. A++++++++ all the way around.
John Horchler, 04/07/2016
Everyone here takes pride in the work they do. Because they enjoy what they do, it translates to work performed well and on time. Customers, like me, know that their vehicle is in good hands; and, the fixable will be fixed!
Fred Bowen, 03/25/2016
The car repair folks around!
Favret Heating And Coolong, 03/24/2016
The most honest and fair auto repair shop in Columbus, Ohio.
Andy/Cathy Steinman, 03/24/2016
Dave Wenger runs the best independent shop in town in my opinion. I've been going to Dave faithfully for 25 years! There is no one I know more honest or service oriented.
Raymond Lavoie, 03/17/2016
Fast, accurate service that is on-time and hassle-free. Confident that do the work that is needed to keep me safe on the roads.
Steve Laudon, 03/02/2016
Wouldn't dream of having my MINI serviced elsewhere in the Columbus Metro area. Great work, reasonable prices, friendly knowledgable staff. Is so nice to be able to take my car to a place where I can TRUST the people working on my MINI. I recommend them without reservation.
Rich Grunenwald, 02/25/2016
I had my high mileage Suburban serviced at The Northend Wrench. The tech identified a couple of issues, one of which was a prior repair where the part had failed. They took care of the part failure under warranty, no questions. My truck has 177,000 hard miles on it, and I have the Northend Wrench maintain it. The truck is dead reliable and never lets me down, even though it receives hard use.
Jeff Vistain, 02/18/2016
Dave, Mark ans Sean are all great. Wouldn't think of going anywhere else. Jeff Visatin
Joe Biello, 02/17/2016
One of the few honest places of business I have encountered in 30 years.
Jeff And Liz Cabot, 02/15/2016
Dave and Mark and the Northend Wrench have been taking great care of me and my cars for a long time. Trusted, accurate, reasonable.
Tony-Christine Matlak, 02/11/2016
Great service, and they have a loaner available when needed. Mine is an old car that they keep in safe running condition.
Marian Garner, 02/05/2016
5 star , in every area!!
April Scott, 01/21/2016
As always, great service and professionalism from Dave and Mark.
Charles Engler, 01/14/2016
I take my car there all the time and never been disappointed.
Phil Legech, 12/31/2015
I am comfortable with the professionalism and advise I receive from Dave and his crew. There are other repair shops to go to closer to my home, but I know repairs will be completed correctly the first time here.
Curt/Ruth Morrow, 12/31/2015
Thanks for being accommodating for my schedule needs!
Frank/Angela Kozarich, 12/29/2015
Dave, Mark, and the guys at North End Wrench are first rate when it comes to automotive repair. From being one of the few places that provide loaner vehicles to the honest and accurate evaluations of which services/repairs your car really does need at the moment. I know from years of experience dealing with North End Wrench my car will be repaired correctly and if by some slim chance something is not up to your expectation they will make it right. Dave and Mark run a trustworthy and respectable business.
Art Strauch, 12/24/2015
The folks at NW replaced a front wheel bearing on my aging truck/SUV and took the initiative to use a complete hub assembly to assure a long-term fix. Their ability to deeply analyze the problem and come up with creative solutions at a fair price is what sets them apart from the other automotive-repair shops in my area.
Our response: Thanks Art!
Tim/Susan Beachy, 12/18/2015
Northend Wrench is THE BEST!!
Our response: Thanks Tim!
Joe Barylak, 12/17/2015
They always do excellent work, doing only what needs to be done. Great value.
Our response: Thanks for the kind words Joe!
Mike Stoner, 12/17/2015
Knowledgeable, honest folks!
Our response: Thanks Mike.
Christine Putnam, 12/14/2015
I wanted to establish a relationship with an Auto-Care shop where I could get advice on best-care practices, as well as have skilled mechanics provide necessary periodic maintenance. Northend Wrench is just what I was looking for. They treated me like an intelligent partner in the care of my car. Thank you!
Our response: Thanks Christine, we appreciate it!
Marilyn Sydow, 12/03/2015
My plate no. is AWZ1716, not ANZ. I hate doing surveys. I gave 5 stars, that should be enough. Seems everyone wants a survey these days. MS
Our response: Marilyn, thanks for the 5 stars! We have updated the plate number. We can also exclude you from future surveys.
Jeff Vistain, 11/12/2015
Absolutely a great group that can handle even the toughest repair!
Amalis Iglesias, 11/12/2015
Amalia's Mini Cooper and ancient Dodge Ram pick up
Laura Bidwa, 11/07/2015
Great service -- personable, thorough, dependable, and honest.
Andy/Cathy Steinman, 11/04/2015
I've been going to Dave Wenger since around 1990. Enough said. How many people have had the same mechanic for 25 years? I drive some unique cars and Dave has dealt with each and every one of them.
Mark McGlone, 10/22/2015
Five stars. Very satisfied with the work, bring the car back for more! Thanks.
Bruce Hill, 10/22/2015
Honest and straightforward. Appreciated the direct approach and feedback from the staff
Mike Moses, 10/08/2015
I appreciated the fact that you noticed the battery was weak, and you recommended I check with the place I bought the battery, in case I had a warranty. I did and got the battery replaced at no charge.
Jeri Grier, 09/25/2015
I've taken a couple cars to them and value their good work and advice.
John Tolle, 09/24/2015
John Tolle, 09/17/2015
Perfect, thanks again! Nice picture, who took it? :)
John Horchler, 09/17/2015
If you are old school like me, we remember the good ol' days when we felt we had a friend in the car repair business. North End Wrench is that friend! No one is ever happy about having to spend lots of money on car repairs. Dave and Mark understand this, and do their very best to minimize the agony. They are busy for a good reason. They earn your trust, and they do good work!
Merry Speece, 09/17/2015
Great service! Highly recommend.
Steve Laudon, 09/03/2015
Fast friendly service with reasonable prices and HONEST employees. The "go to" garage for my Mini Cooper.
Liz Gaines, 08/27/2015
The Northend Wrench is the best! I won't take my car anywhere else. Me and my family have been loyal customers for over 25 years.
Rebecca Andrews, 08/27/2015
This shop was recommended to me by a colleague for a second opinion. Most of what I was originally told was wrong with my car was false, so I am glad I used them! It is nice to find a mechanic that is honest.
Charles Engler, 08/20/2015
As auto repair shops go, you can't go wrong if you take your car here for repair!
Dave Umbarger, 08/20/2015
First time experience was fantastic
Karen-Tim Eldredge, 08/15/2015
Your terrific mechanic (Sean B.) is very honest, professional and really knows his stuff. Super fast service. Well done. Thank you!
Betsy MacDonell, 08/06/2015
Dave and his staff are awesome to work with and very knowledgeable about many makes and models of cars!
Keith-Jan Bednarczuk, 08/06/2015
Mark and Dave have been taking care of our cars for many years now, and we've always been extremely satisfied with their professionalism and quality of service. Recently we took in our Mazda 3 hatchback as I thought the brakes sounded off. Turns out the brakes were fine and there was just a bit of fender lining rubbing against the tire causing the noise. North End Wrench got us fixed up and on our way. Thanks guys!
Priscilla Knaus, 07/31/2015
I am very protective of my cars and the guys at northend take care of them Reasonably priced. They do just what needs to be done that is why I keep coming back
John Tolle, 07/30/2015
Perfect in all ways-knowledge, skill, and service
Mark-Cathy Wehner, 07/30/2015
After 20+ years of Northend Wrench servicing our vehicles, Dave, Mark and their crew have always been straight and honest. They have years of experience, very knowledgeable. Always the first we recommend to others, hands down.
Curt/Ruth Morrow, 07/30/2015
Service was great as usual.
Laura Clevenger, 07/30/2015
My car lives another day and the staff are friendly.
Stephanie Frost, 07/23/2015
Still working on this issue. Will post a complete review when work is finished. So far very pleased.
Frank/Angela Kozarich, 07/19/2015
5 Stars! Northend Wrench never does work that I don't need and they make sure to let me know what needs to be repaired and how soon.
Cheryl/Bob Graffagnino, 07/09/2015
We found Northend Wrench a few years ago after a friend recommended it for service on our 2006 Nissan Quest. Dave Wenger and his team are professional, courteous and prompt. I always feel confident that my car has been checked thoroughly and that repair and maintenance plans are appropriate and reasonable. I highly recommend Northend Wrench.
Kathleen Lewis, 07/09/2015
5 stars.....quick and efficient. Perfect service. Also, love the picture on this site. Looks casual but very professional.
Ron/Cont Carr, 07/06/2019
Dave and Mark are always helpful and attentive to customers' needs. They work hard to make sure you are satisfied with the work performed on your vehicle.
Michael Burns, 07/10/2018
Appreciate the friendliness of the staff and the very reasonable prices. Would have rated 5 stars except that I never received a definitive explanation of what was wrong with my car -- carbon buildup was suspected but not certain. I will say, though, that my car has been running fine since I brought it in and it was running very rough before taking it in.
Tim McCoy, 02/02/2017
Speed of getting back to me on the work/getting it done was over a week. Understand that this happens with 'busy' shops that do excellent work!
Mark Ryan, 02/01/2017
I love the quality and professionalism. However the shops prices are at, or above, a dealership estimate.
Paul Anderson, 11/10/2016
Very good experience. David takes time to explain things and genuinely seems to like cars. Mark is also helpful and takes whatever time is needed to answer questions and set up appointments. As a bonus, it is a good place to have a classic car worked on, and is close to home. It can be tough to find people willing and qualified to work on old cars. Heck, I may start bringing my Toyota in for service! I don't yet have enough experience with them to give a 5 star rating. But I will do business with them again. And I would recommend them to friends and neighbors.
Raymond Lavoie, 02/11/2016
Great people, great service. High marks for instilling confidence in what can be a confusing process. Thank you for the thorough and quality work.
Tony-Christine Matlak, 10/01/2015
Generally I have a very high opinion of the Northend Wrench. This visit was a bit frustrating due to a breakdown in communication - I had to coordinate a rental car. But it all worked out.
Our response: Tony, don't forget we do have loaner cars available, just let us know!
Kelly Nichol, 07/30/2015
This visit was not ideal, though not the fault of the guys at wrench. There were problems with part delivery that impacted the length of time my car was in the shop. I had figured on 2 days, not 4. However, the work done seems to be up to my usual, high expectations and I have trusted the guys with my cars for quite a few years now. I have not faith in Dave and company to tell me the truth about my car. He has saved me money and hassles in the past with advice that I trust and that, to me, is worth an occasional hiccup in anticipated repair timeframe.
Our response: Thanks for patience Kelly. We are occasionally held up with parts delivery.
David Reiniger, 08/06/2015
It took way too long to take care of car. Car was in shop over month and most of time it was not even worked on. WE kept being told next week and finally next week came along and the work got done. Almost 5 weeks.
