    My girlfriend with the BMW 2003 (Miki)

    by Brian , 03/29/2012

    I feel strongly enough about Payless Garage to put in my own two-cents about them..... I was driving the car when the sway bar post (stand off, whatever it is called) broke. I could hear it rubbing on the axle. We brought her car to BMW here in Salem, and they gave us a loaner for the night. next day, they called us to have us come in. When we went, they gave writing, that the sway bar was bent, and the whole assembly needed to be replaced. I begged my girlfriend to give Payless Garage a chance. she reluctantly did. We arrived and showed them the paperwork we'd received. They said right then, that is was way too much....and doubted that the spring-like sway bar was bent. They could have charged us damn near anything under $2,800, and we'd have payed happily. They replaced the ONE thing wrong, the stand-off...a $52 part!!!!!!! We happily tipped them really well. i swear by Payless Garage. Oh yeah, don't pay mind to Anthony's review. Sounds odd. Doubt it's legit.

    I bought my 2003 BMW new in 2003. It was always serviced and repaired at the BMW dealership in Salem. In 2011, I was having a problem with it. I took it into the BMW dealer and they quoted me $2800.00. I broke my own rules and did something I had never done before. I took it outside of a BMW repair shop and had Payless Garage give me a quote. I told them how much the BMW dealer was charging. They called me back with a quote of under $200.00. Yes 2 hundred dollars. I absolutely could not believe it. My car has run like a gem every since Payless Garage repaired it. I will always take my car to Payless garage. I have referred a lot of people to them with all positive reviews. You should give them a try.

    thanks a bunch

    The mechanics here are nice and will explain and answer questions. They told me I would need some repairs in the future but got everything running great for now. It has been running great ans I can tell the car was fixed well.

    They do a great job. I have had my car in for a few things and once I leave have not had another problem. They are nice people too. I think their rates are average but the service is not!

    I have taken all of my vehicles to Payless Garage for over 20 years. I fell the mechanics there are my long-time "friends." I never question their advice, and I trust them with my vehicles 100%. Their prices are fair and their service is excellent. They have earned my highest recommendation.

    An honest and understanding place

    My name is Jay and I've worked at Payless for 20 years, we have always put the customers safety and best interest before our own. We dont do things unless they are needed. To the gentleman that left the negative response, he was completely out of line, all I was saying was, in the shape of the car, there could have been alot more work done. Sorry for any inconvienience and what was said was taken out of context. Thank you for all of your buisness.

    Good Place to Go

    I had been going to another Auto Repair shop for 6 years and then they started to treat me like i was a bother to them when I would call for an appointment. I asked around and was told about Payless Garage. I tried them when my Subaru needed a clutch. Not only was the price lower then I found anywhere else but I was suprised at how friendly and kind they were. I will use them for as long as i need Auto Repairs. I would recommend them to anyone. Great Service, Thanks

    Excellent service

    by Sunny , 05/11/2009

    I have been taking my car here for 4 years. The service is outstanding, and they are knowledgable. I always get an estimate,and they have are usually below estimate. Great guys!

    paless turned out to be pay more

    by anthony , 03/10/2009

    i took my jeep there to have the brakes done and he said they would have it done that day and of corse it was not done until the following day and then the $200 dollar quote i was givin worked its way up to $500 dollars and when i complained he looked me in the eyes and said "sir ive had your car for two days now i could charge you ALOT more" and i havent been back since. they are a bunch of theives and if you feel like getting funked in the a$$ without the lube then payless is where its at. I PHUKIN HOPE THERE SHOP BURNS TO THE PHUKIN GROUND
