I have used European for more than 10 years, I have always been satisified and pleased. I can trust the repairs are completed and only the work necessary is performed. Suggestions for upcoming maintence is provided and reminders are sent in the mail.The staff and mechanics are friendly and knowledgeable. I feel prices have always been reasonable, not cheap but you get what you pay for. I always specify Toyota parts and they have no problem with the request. I trust them if they tell and repair is needed and on many occasions have told me something I wanted done was not necessary or did a minor repair to solve the problem. European is a vert good shop.

On a trip from Maryland to Florida, I replaced three batteries and an alternater trying to fix an intermitent electrical problem. The battery and alternater was done by a friend in my home town. After the trip, European found the problem was a bad ground wire; cost $49! I've had the Larry, Moe & Curly chain do "easy" stuff, but even the, have had to take it to European later to really fix it. They are very good. They are not a discount garage. But you usually only need to visit once.

I am a biased customer.... I have used this mechanic (Steve)for many years, that is why I am biased. With that aside. There are only two mechanics in this WORLD that I trust... the bad thing is my brother-in-law retired! Do the math. I could not enter a response for "respond well if they screw up". If Steve is unable to do the repair, he will tell you up front!

I moved to Maryland about 5 years ago and having been taking my car to European ever since. As a 20something, single female was concerned about finding a trustworthy mechanic. I heard about European Sport Garage through the recommendation of a coworker who had been taking his car there for years. I have now experienced everything from simple oil changes and diagnostic work to regular maintenance and the Pontiac shutting off in the middle of a highway after having gas stolen and my tank being filled with water. Each and every time I have had nothing short of perfect service. The staff are polite and respectful whether I'm making an appointment over the phone or physically in the shop. Steve, the main mechanic, personally handles the service calls, explaining things to me in a way that I can understand without being condescending or making me feel as if I'm being duped - again as a 20 something, single female, that shows character. Oil changes are completed within 30 minutes so if I decide to wait my entire morning isn't lost. They also check air pressure in the tires, coolant, regularly top of other fluids, and look for issues. Diagnostic work is done quickly but thoroughly - my temperature gauge was telling me my car was seemingly overheating, took it in for a check and when he could have easily said something was wrong and charged me for work that didn't need to be done, he was honest and said everything looked fine, to keep an eye on it, and let him know if it keeps happening. Check engine light came on, the Pontiac was an 04 with 100K on it so I wasn't surprised - they not only found the computer based issue but also went beyond that and did an internal check which found my main drive belt to be missing a section (thus preventing a more serious issue). After having my gas kindly "replaced" with water, they worked with me and my insurance company, getting my car back to me by the end of Tuesday, the second day, regardless of it being an unexpected item Monday morning. When the replacement fuel pump was faulty and left me stranded almost two hours from the garage, once hearing from the AAA shop that is was a fuel pump issue, they handled getting it towed back to European, getting the manufacturer to provide a new part, and the labor at no charge to me. Regardless of having the part already in the shop or needing to order one, they will work to get your car back to you in a shorter amount of time than you could have hoped. I've now upgraded to a VW and European treats me better than the dealer I bought the car from! Steve, the other mechanics, and staff at European are professional, honest, trustworthy, and reliable. I am incredibly thankful to have found such a wonderful mechanic on my first try and would highly recommend you take your car to this shop. If you're within driving distance of Laurel, MD - you have no reason not to!
