Customer Review

  Charlie Shaikov, 11/27/2023

Great work at a fair market price. I have used North End Wrench for many years and I am always happy with the service.

  Debbie Lipkowitz, 11/02/2023

First shop I used after moving here 30 years ago, when NEW was on High St. and I was in an apartment and didn't know the city at all. First week, my car didn't start, right off the moving van! Have found no reason to change ever since! That first time, they even drove me home since I was pretty lost! They are fair, thorough and that's high praise in a business that can really take advantage. Thanks.

Our 2013 Kia Sorento is our primary vehicle, and the starter went out. Dave and his team were able to work us into their schedule and get us back on the road within a couple of days. Good work and service! This is a great neighborhood resource!

Our response:   Thanks a bunch Rich!

You?re the best!

  Ihsan Alfahyomi, 08/08/2023

Simply the best

  Kelly Nichol, 08/03/2023

I took my crv in to dealership for a recall notice and they said I needed another 550.00 of work done. I took the car to Dave, and as he always has done he told me honestly, that everything was in good working order. All I needed was brake line flushed and filled. 170.00 bucks. Gave me an opinion about how soon I'd need brake pads and to think about tires in the spring. I won't use anyone else.

Our response:   Thanks Kelly!

  James Bracken, 08/03/2023

Northend Wrench is the best! I have complete confidence in their work.

Our response:   Thanks James!

They know import cars and especially German makes, Dave and his team work to get you back on the road, they have been in business at this location for a long time for a reason. Happy with my service work and recommended by many friends too.

  Bob-Beth Bidinger, 04/21/2023

I came in around 11;00 after my car had a hard time starting. They rushed to fix it so wouldn?t need to be a rental car and replaced the starter that same day. Great service!

  David Jamison, 04/20/2023

I am very satisfied with the service, knowledge & commitment to customers The Northend Wrench provides.

  Don Story, 04/13/2023

The best support for your car that you can expect. Good people who are interested in getting you back on the road in your car safely and in style.

  Sandie Howard, 04/13/2023

Took my car in a day early so they could start work early on day of appointment. Actually got it fixed that day. Needed a starte and told them to look it over for anything else. Never worry about getting charged for anything that's no necessary because it's a 2009. Mark even picked me up at my home when it was done so I wouldn't have to walk. Can't say enough good things!!!

  Sue Thompson, 04/06/2023

Really great customer service, and interaction. Helped diagnose a really difficult issue and referred me to a dealership to replace an expensive part. They were instrumental in getting the problem fixed.

  Dave Collier, 04/06/2023

awesome work, very satisfied

Extremely helpful and worked to resolve a problem I had with the car. Very knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile.

  Ed/Martha Petry, 03/16/2023

I've reviewed before. Doing it again. The service is 1st rate and continues to be so. Over the years we have enjoyed the high level of customer service and the repairs Northend Wrench performed for us. A good independent shop.

  Meredith Haynes, 03/02/2023

I fully trust the Northend Wrench to take care of my car. The mechanics are very knowledgeable and double check their work. I won't go anywhere else.

  Paul Alexeeff, 02/02/2023

David & the rest of Northend Wrench provide competent, thorough and cost conscious mechanical services to several of our vehicles over the years. We feel safe knowing that our vehicles receive the care provided by Northend Wrench. Excellent work!

  Mike/ Shirley Moses, 01/26/2023

We can always depend on Northend for accurate estimates and great work.

  Ron Price, 01/19/2023

Been bringing my cars here for decades! Wouldn't trust them to anybody else.

  Rich/Kathy Grunenwald, 01/19/2023

We had some fairly major work needed on our Kia Sorento. Dave and his crew did a great job identifying what needed done and taking care of it.

  James Bracken, 01/12/2023

Prompt attention. Excellent service. Fair prices.

  Ken True, 01/07/2023

This is the finest car repair center in Ohio !! Friendly and knowledgeable owners and mechanics have provided expert care of my Porsche, Mercedes and Volvo for over a decade. I?m fortunate to live nearby and have the privilege to entrust my cars to expert care. Their fees for service are always very reasonable with integrity.

  Joanne Ingledue, 01/05/2023

Perfect as always. Your service is always the best.

  Mark Raisch, 12/22/2022

I have been a customer of Northend Wrench for over 30 years. Dave and his crew always do a phenomenal job with my cars. I appreciate their honesty in the repairs they recommend.

  Rich/Kathy Grunenwald, 12/15/2022

Consistent high level of service. Straight talk and honest pricing.

  Tony-Christine Matlak, 12/10/2022

Service is great. They go beyond the normal maintenance and give the lo-down on the car's health.

  Adam Frix, 11/24/2022

High quality knowledgeable service for my VW, right here in my neighborhood. What's not to like? Easy to make an appointment, they keep track of what you need, and most importantly they don't try to shove unnecessary services at you.

  Bob Cody, 11/24/2022

The best mechanics in town!

  David Hayden, 11/17/2022

I?ve been bringing cars here since the early 2000s. Never been disappointed. Dave is very up front on timings and cost estimates. I strongly recommend the NorthEnd Wrench.

  Karen Geizer, 11/16/2022

Checking in is efficient and everyone is very pleasant and customer-oriented

  Julie Faulconer, 11/07/2022

I was referred by a friend over 30 years ago and have been a faithful customer ever since. I'm never sold services I don't need, I'm always called for approval before any work is done and my cars run forever.

  Revkah Balingit, 10/20/2022

They were courteous and thorough and I believe they were very fair and honest. They have earned my business for the future.

  Phil Lampe, 10/13/2022

Yet again, Dave and the guys at Northend Wrench went above and beyond. Not only did they replace my oil pan and brakes the day I dropped it off, after I picked up my car the same day I noticed they'd applied adhesive to the seals that has begun to peel away from the door windows all the way around the car . . . without me having said a thing about it. That's not why I always go back for any and every auto maintenance issue--it's their great work, honesty and transparency--but it sure does prove how much they care about their customers.

  Mark/Ann Jones, 10/06/2022

Great work! Excellent service!! Many THANKS!

  Will Collier, 10/06/2022

Excellent and friendly, as always!

  Benson Ross, 09/15/2022

Thank you for the excellent work you did on my '63 Stingray. You are careful and considerate, and kept me informed every step of the way. Great work, it runs like a champ!

  Chuck Krieg, 09/08/2022

"Professionalism" is a term too easily tossed around these days. What it truly says is that someone has worked hard many years to earn the distinction. DAVE WENGER, and his entire staff are 'PROs. My experience is always humble, honest, and fair. WANT IT DONE RIGHT...SEE NORTH END WRENCH!!!

  Matt/Karen Gill, 09/08/2022

Great service by very friendly and knowledgeable staff.

  Daniel Cherok, 09/01/2022

Great service, great people!

  Rich/Kathy Grunenwald, 07/28/2022

We've been going to Dave and his team for years, and have been very happy. Consistently good service and advice. Service fees are reasonable particularly given the quality of work (we've never had to return to have work redone). Highly recommended.

  Bill Hoza, 07/21/2022

Our response:   Thank you for allowing us to work on your car.

  Ian Greenblott, 05/26/2022

I brought my 83 year old neighbor's 1989 or '91 Toyota Corolla in to have an electrical issue serviced. The serviced provided was top-tier and the price was more than reasonable. Thanks again, guys!

Our response:   Always happy to help.

  Anna Starr, 05/21/2022

Great people and excellent service

  Leslie Dybiec, 03/06/2022

Honest, no nonsense. What a breath of fresh air!

Our response:   Thanks so much Leslie!

  Delbert Hall, 03/06/2022

Northend Wrench has been helping me maintain my Toyota MR2 for years now. They do great work and are very thorough. I love that there is a shop this dependable near me.

  Bob/Cathy Vanvolkenburg, 03/03/2022

We have trusted both of our cars to the team at The Northend Wrench for 35 years! They are professional and friendly. Their pricing is fair!

  Paul Alexeeff, 02/24/2022

NWI has been servicing our BMW and Nissan for the past couple of years. They expertly diagnose what needs repairing or servicing and communicate only what they feel is necessary. Their work is reliable. It feels good to put our trust in David and his team.

  Tina/George Bozzuto/Anderson, 02/24/2022

Dave and Mark are great at diagnosing what needs to be fixed on my 2013 Mini Cooper and what other issues they discover and call to my attention. Their cost estimates are always accurate and explained on the receipt. When asking them about when the cost of repairs compares to replacing the car, they always tel me "We'll let you know when you get there- but you're a long way off from that."

  Jonathan Welch, 02/24/2022

They are cheaper, better, faster, and more polite than the dealer.

  Jason Miles, 02/17/2022

Everyone at Northend is courteous & knowledgable - they explain the repairs & why they?re needed & maybe even why they?re not needed. I?ve been doing there for years & I always feel I get quality service that?s done right.

Our response:   Thanks Jason!

  Karen Geizer, 02/10/2022

Friendly, efficient, and informative.

Our response:   Thanks for the kind word Karen!

  Jeffrey Peters, 02/03/2022

Top notch folks and service.

  Mark Michaels, 01/27/2022

As always you and your hand picked team never fail to come through in a big way when I need you to. Your exceptional assessment was what I really needed to make the decision to get a new ride. I am glad that you don?t pull punches when safety is involved. I trust your judgment in all my automotive needs. Even though cash is short for me now, I am ramping up my search for the perfect vehicle to get me back on the road. And of course you will handle my needs on that one as well. A big Thank You for all of your effort.

Our response:   Thanks Mark! Our customers safety is always out #1 priority.

  Melody Davis, 01/20/2022

Dave's team is always very thorough and honest. Oil changes are not cheap, but include a once over inspection on everything to be sure its road worthy for the next 6 months and gives me the same satisfaction and peace of mind as if my father had doe it.

Our response:   Thanks Melody, it's always our goal to keep you safe and on the road!

  Charles Engler, 12/30/2021

My service was done in quality time.

Our response:   Thanks Charles!

  Matthew Pearson, 12/30/2021

On the expensive side for an alignment, but for the quality and attention received was well worth the extra cost over standard toe n go shops.

  Gary Gray, 12/23/2021

Did a great job with an alignment and oil change on my 06 Lotus Elise. Thanks Guys!

Our response:   Thanks Gary, that's a fun car!

  Betsy MacDonell, 12/16/2021

Northend Wrench is the best shop in Columbus!! The team is knowledgeable, friendly, time sensitive and cost conscious. Plus they offer a few loaner cars to use during service. Wonderful!!!

Our response:   Thanks for the kind words Betsy! We always enjoy working on your Porsche!

  Larry Hutchison, 12/16/2021

Great service. Great people. Lawrence Hutchison

  Mike Szymanski, 12/09/2021

My first time at Northend Wrench was great from start to finish. The guys were professional and clean. They installed springs and exhaust on my VW and aligned it. I will definitely take my vehicles there for service in the future

Our response:   Thanks Mike! We enjoyed working on your 2013 Jetta! Looks great with that lowered stance!

  Jeff MacKey, 12/05/2021

I had a complicated repair on my 2004 Mercedes. Northend Wrench did it timely at a reasonable price. I will definitely return there for any repairs on my Mercedes.

Our response:   Thanks Jeff! We enjoy the challenges that the older cars present. Glad you are pleased with our service.

  Linda Jackson, 11/11/2021

I had been told that my 2005 Toyota Highlander would need new tires this coming winter, unless we have a mild winter. Because I sometimes transport my loving grandchildren, I didn't want to chance waiting to see what type of winter we'd have. I especially appreciate that Northend Wrench suggested a business for me to purchase my tires. I told Mark that I'd like to do some research on my own and, lo and behold, five other places that I checked out (including two others that Mark had suggested) could not match the cost of the one business that Northend suggested, including mounting and hazard warranty. I've patronized Northend Wrench since 2010, and have no plans on going elsewhere.

Our response:   Thanks for your kind words Linda. We will keep your Highlander safe and reliable!

  Dave Taylor, 11/11/2021

Took very good care of my classic car. I will definitely come back again.

Our response:   Thanks Dave! We enjoy working on the classics!

  Anna Hoza, 11/05/2021

Amazing service and the nicest guys in town!

Our response:   Thanks Anna! We look forward to keeping your Mercedes serviced for many years to come!

  Johnathan Lucas, 10/28/2021

Northend Wrench is a great shop. They are always provide stellar customer service. I trust that my car is in the bests hands.

Our response:   Thanks Johnathan! Glad you are pleased with our service.

  Linda Jackson, 10/07/2021

I always appreciate the excellent service that I receive at Northend Wrench, and especially appreciate being told ahead of time when parts, or specific work, is going to be needed in the near future. I've been a customer since 2010, and although they're almost 30 minutes from my house, I have no plans on getting auto service elsewhere!

Our response:   Thanks for the kind words Linda! It is a pleasure to keep your Highlander safe and on the road!

  Mike Mlasofsky, 10/02/2021

Very helpful

  Missy Ellis, 09/23/2021

Great service, and they treat their clients with deference and professionalism.

  Mike/ Shirley Moses, 09/17/2021

We have been customers for years and have always been very pleased with the working their thoroughness and attention to quality. As the owners of older vehicles, we are also grateful for their attention to getting the value out of sometimes expensive repairs in light of our vehicles? age and condition.

  Ramble - Rj Krohn, 09/02/2021

The folks at North End Wrench are truly the best. Hands down, the most honest shop in the central Ohio region, without question. Stellar work, and service second to none.

  James Bracken, 09/02/2021

Quick diagnosis, reasonable quote, and timely problem solution. Excellent service all around.

  Bob Cody, 08/27/2021

Best, most honest mechanics in town!

  David Jamison, 08/26/2021

My goodness, these guys are amazing! Professional, yet friendly. Knowledgeable, yet humble. I've had my Porsche 996 / 911 there three times (four, if I include the track weekend tech inspection). They were recommend to me by a BMW owner. Each time the experience was the same. They always did the work I requested without pressuring me to have other work done and always did what they could to save me money. Their estimates were accurate and they kept me informed of the progress of their work without me having to call. After each job was done they explained exactly what they did and why they did it while teaching me more about my car. They always have very interesting cars there, from classics to, what appear to be, brand new cars. The last time I was there they even had an Edsel. I always end up taking pictures of at least one car while I'm there. I have seen people come in for quick fixes or tire air on their Mercedes and the crew there was happy to help. I can't say enough good things about this shop. As a matter of fact, this is the first time I have ever written a review of any establishment - that's how impressed and totally satisfied I am.

Our response:   Thanks for the kind words David! We do enjoy working on a wide variety of cars!

  Bill Hoza, 08/17/2021

Fantastic service and customer care

  Bob Cody, 07/01/2021

Best mechanics and car maintenance shop in Columbus! Always done professionally AND honestly.

  Robin Cox, 06/10/2021

Excellent work and knowledge. Explains work so the customer can understand the issue. Got my 1987 Firebird that had been in long term storage back on the road and running fine! They take great care of your cherished vehicle!

  Barbara Davidson, 06/07/2021

Goodby Dealer service. Hello Northend Wrench.

  Clay Lanctot, 05/20/2021

Sean really knows his stuff. It?s too bad he has to drag around the rest of the deadweight in that shop.

  Dave Marino, 05/20/2021

Always the Best service..

  Tina Agee, 05/03/2021

These guys are the best! I knew my car needed some major repairs and it did but these guys were able to salvage some parts saving me over $600 thankfully. I trust these guys explicitly and I will never take my car to anyone else! Even though they kept my car over the weekend, which they have never had to do, I felt better knowing that they would finish the job completely and correctly on Monday instead of rushing though things on a Fri afternoon. Mark is also the friendliest person to deal with!

Our response:   Thanks so much Tina!

  Betsy Eastlake, 04/15/2021

North End Wrench is as good as it gets! everyone is so friendly and they have always done a great job on my cars.

  Gregg Lewis, 04/01/2021

Great job, fixed an issue a different mechanic could not diagnose. Will go back and refer friends.

  Randy Cole, 03/25/2021

Execellent auto repair shop!

  Missy Ellis, 03/18/2021

After my longtime auto service rather abruptly closed their doors, I didn?t know what to do. I wanted a small shop that was honest, reasonable and hospitable. So I was surprised to find Northend Wrench. Not only were they all of those things but they provided a free loaner and are less than a mile from my house. What a find! I feel very lucky.

  Gregg Lewis, 03/11/2021

Great shop for German cars. Honest, Knowledgeable, Reasonable. That last one is very hard to find.

  Mark Spurgeon, 03/11/2021

We love the North End Wrench! We recommend this shop to all our friends and family.

  Scott Wittenburg, 03/04/2021

This is place is amazing! I took in my ?67 VW bug which was not running right and they fixed her right up. Dave is an extremely knowledgeable mechanic who is passionate about making things right. Now I know where to go whenever I need a maintenance on my vintage VW!

  Tina/George Bozzuto/Anderson, 02/25/2021

These guys have been taking care of my 2003 Mini Cooper for years. Much more helpful than the dealership where I bought it.

  Linda Jackson, 02/18/2021

I've been a customer at Northend Wrench since 2010, and that alone should tell you how their service has been. Our (theirs and mine) combined care of my 2005 Toyota Highlander is the reason that my baby has 226,000+ miles on it. Although Northend Wrench is 20 minutes from my house, and there are many, many more mechanics closer to where I live, they have undoubtedly earned my trust and respect. I have NO plans on leaving them anytime soon!

  Don Olshavsky, 01/28/2021

Good work, good people. I highly recommend.

  Mike Donley, 01/23/2021

These guys actually quoted me about $50 higher than the dealership but it was a decent sized job and they came highly recommended from friends and the reviews say it all. I was happy to spend a few bucks more for the piece of mind that the job would be done right. The guys were super friendly and professional and even emailed me some snapshots and an update halfway through the job. Great local business.

  Charles Greenwald, 01/23/2021

Quiet ride again. My 1964 Beetle was in dire need of a new transaxle, and with a new transaxle installed along with my engine compartment freshened up with new seals I can now listen to my radio again. Thanks Dave!

  Kevin Grapski, 01/21/2021

Updates and communication are top shelf, quality of work is solid, knowledgeable and helpful staff

  Eric Schumacher, 01/07/2021

Love these guys... whether it's having them do actual work or just stopping in to ask a question or two about an issue, Dave and Mark are always super helpful and friendly. I'd recommend Northend Wrench to anybody.

  Dave Kindinger, 12/31/2020

  Mark Spurgeon, 09/03/2020

We?re big fans of Northend Wrench, and recommend them to family and friends all the time. In addition to being very proficient mechanics, they are extremely service- focused too. They communicate well, do not pressure you into unnecessary purchases, and the staff are very personable.

  George Porter, 09/03/2020

Great service,they really are an exceptional group !

  Tina Agee, 08/27/2020

I'v been taking my car here for the past 5 years now and I will never go anywhere else! The mechanics are the best; they know cars and do great quality, honest work! Mark, who manages the garage is also the best! He's friendly, professional and I enjoy dealing with him every time! I greatly appreciate that they have a rental car for me every time to use for the entire day while they're working on my car. I will also continue to recommend people to use them!

  Rob Armstrong, 08/27/2020

I had a smooth, problem free experience with Northend. Communications were clear, mechanics were knowledgeable, and work was completed quickly. I took in a '97 Z3, and will soon take in my '68 912 with complete confidence.

Fabulous service coupled with extraordinary customer service.

Reputable, honest, efficient and friendly service. Highly recommended. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

  Meredith Haynes, 08/06/2020

My dealership told me I needed a new clutch, but my car has semi low miles so I took it to Northend Wrench for a second opinion since they have been servicing the car and they were honest and said it is fine for now. I always trust them before anyone else.

  Max Yano, 08/06/2020

great service!!!

  Eric Schumacher, 07/30/2020

Can't say enough about Dave and Mark and the crew at Northend Wrench. I came to them with a pretty unconventional project and Dave worked with me to get it running and even let me come in and do some work on it myself in the shop to help keep the cost down. These guys know what they're doing... great communication and friendly service also. Highly recommend!

  Mike/ Shirley Moses, 07/23/2020

Everyone at Northend provides high quality and very friendly service. They look out for their customers and coach then on the best approach to maintaining their vehicles.

  Mike Doskocil, 04/16/2020

These are the guys you go to. I have been driving cars since 1979. I built 5 VW?s. When I can?t do something, I call these guys. You should too. The only thing that can?t always do? Update the firmware on computers that are ?dealer specific?. Everything else? These guys. They?re the best in the area.

  Tim Stokes, 04/09/2020

I?ve been taking my cars to the Northend Wrench for over 30 years. I trust Dave and the team like they were my brothers. Always excellent, honest work.

  Tina Agee, 11/22/2019

These guys are the BEST! From Mark who deals upfront with the customers to the mechanics who are so highly experienced, this is by far the best shop I've dealt with in C-bus since 1990. I use to take my car to Bernie's Garage in Cliftonville for years but ever since he retired, things went down hill fast over there so someone recommended Northland and I'm so glad they did. They are so honest and really reasonably priced. I trust them completely and my husband and I will be bringing our cars here for a very long time!

  Bill Hoza, 11/22/2019

  Graham Trainer, 11/02/2019

Very good maintenance with myPorsche It may take a little while to schedule service but that is a good thing because that means they are a busy shop. I went to them on a recommendation from Porsche club members after being blown off by Byers Prosche. Excellent work.

  Brenda-Glenn Wheeler, 10/31/2019

Mark and Dave are always very accommodating with scheduling around our time. They freely give advice on matters related to our vehicles.

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

  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

This is the place for you if you?re looking for automotive experts you can trust with your car AND your wallet.

  William Roberts, 11/01/2018

Northend Wrench is honest and trustworthy. I trust no one else with my classic car.

  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.

  Vickey 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.

  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.

  Sandra Dunkle, 03/23/2018

Great Service!!

  Rachel/Stephen Alexander/Bittner, 03/15/2018

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

  Kathleen Gordon, 10/26/2017

  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.

As always, perfect service from everyone.

  Tim Timmons, 09/07/2017

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.

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

Good service

  Dan Noble, 07/27/2017

The team was able to work me in when my truck was towed in, although I did not have an appointment. The staff is always courteous and knowledgeable. . Been a customer for over 30 years,

  Roger Shooter, 07/27/2017


  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/Kathy 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

Great knowledgeable staff. You can depend on them to fix your car correctly.

  John Tolle, 04/20/2017

5 star perfect

  Dave Marino, 04/13/2017

Always the best service in town.

  John Joyce, 04/13/2017

Outstand job. Will be returning and referred friends to you

  Jeff Pelley, 04/06/2017

These guys know what they're doing. They explain things well, which is important to me.

  Scott Bowen, 04/06/2017

Easy to work with and they deliver on their agreement to service my MGB right. Thank you.

  Steve Hilditch, 03/31/2017

Great service, as always

  Vickey 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!

  Cynthia Stratton, 02/10/2017

very nice guys. very helpful.

  Chris Bruzzese, 02/09/2017

We have been going to Northend Wrench for a very long time and find them very trustworthy and providers of quality, affordable auto service. I highly recommend them.

  Dorian Richards, 02/02/2017


  Charlie Shaikov, 01/30/2017

David and the crew always do a great job. Very meticulous and thorough.

  Tina/George Bozzuto/Anderson, 01/20/2017

Professional, friendly service in a timely manner.

  Steve/Colleen Beer, 01/12/2017

Excellent service! They are the best shop around. professional and great at what they do!

  Kim Hurst, 12/29/2016

Always take care of me....Mark, David and the team. Thank you, Kim Hurst

  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.

Our response:   Thanks Denise!

  John Tolle, 11/24/2016

5 stars, as always, the best. Many thanks.

  Sarah Emerine, 11/24/2016

I am always confident that my car is well cared for after an appointment! Thanks guys!

  Anrea D'Andrea, 11/14/2016


  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.

  Bruce/Emily Pickering, 10/06/2016

Excellent service! 5 star.

  Brenda Wright, 09/30/2016

I trust Northend Wrench and appreciate that it is located conveniently in Clintonville.

  Joe Barylak, 09/29/2016

Always great service that keeps our cars running smoothly. We've been using Northend Wrench for over 25 years. Thanks Dave & Mark

  Ernest/Laurel Lockridge, 09/29/2016

first-rate service and value, as usual

  Doug Greenleaf, 09/09/2016

Great service & support. The Northend Wrench team is easy to work with and provides excellent overall work.

  John Tolle, 09/08/2016

Perfect as always

  Ann Stevens, 09/08/2016

Truthful,patience and cost old girl will get all car maintenance there!

  Melody Davis, 08/25/2016

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/Kathy Grunenwald, 08/18/2016

Great service and fair pricing!

  Kathleen Lewis, 08/04/2016

The glad they are here and sooooo knowledgable.

  Rich/Kathy 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!

  Sarah Emerine, 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!

  Amy Honsberger, 06/13/2016

This shop has been a great resource to me over the years. No B.S. here!

  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.

  Larry Hutchison, 05/26/2016

Excellent! LH

  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!

  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/Kathy 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!

  Andy/Kathy 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/Kathy 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.

  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/Kathy 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.

  Mariko-Kaneda Niwa, 10/30/2015

Great work and super efficient

  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/ Shirley 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.

  Elizabeth Freeman, 10/01/2015

I have been taking my Subaru Legacy to Northend Wrench for years and I love their service!! They always explain to me what is wrong and don't talk to me like I am stupid. Sean is great with my car and I know I will be safe driving down the road because of him.

  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!

  Bill Esch, 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.

  Steve Ealy, 06/25/2023

Only reason it isn't 5 stars is it took a month to get in!?

  Shawna Hoover, 02/24/2022

Great service, fast and timely! The guys were friendly helpful and informative. Only complaint is that the service is a tad on the expensive side.

  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.

  Michael Zikas, 10/07/2021

Very Disappointing
