These guys are my new "go to" shop. This was my first experience with them. They completed the repair for the price estimated and I had my car back in 24 hours. They were courteous when I asked questions and finally fixed the actual problem instead of just treating the symptom. I left with a very positive feeling.

Dmitri is maybe the gruffest human alive. Jerry is nice, but Dmitri's the boss. Alba will _always_ do any repair for less money than anyone else. But Dmitri may just walk away from you as you tell him about the problem. They are completely honest, do not charge at all for diagnostic work, stand behind all repairs and usually get the right answer right away--on any and all makes and models. But you will have to wait, they may keep your car a day or two and not call you--also, they're right on 4th avenue in park slope, without any parking facilities so you may have to circle the block a few times before you can pull in. There are no appointments, and on Saturdays and Monday mornings, forget it. But, for cheap, honest and reliable they can't be beat--and right down the block from the N,R trains

been going to Dimitri for more than 10 years. I like it best when he works on car himself.

I tried out this place based on a recommendation from this site when it came time to get my older car (1989) inspected. I knew it would have trouble passing the emissions inspection, but they managed to nurse the car a bit and get it through. They've also subsequently managed to help me out and do a great, low-cost job on a repair that would have cost waaaay more had I used a dealership. Prices have been low/fair and work has been done quick. Courteous and professional. I highly recommend.

This place was so great! I had to make a trip that day, and they were able to get me in and fix my problem in less than 3 hrs. They were kind and very inexpensive - a big thumbs up!

I found them recommended here. I've been going to them for years with several different makes and models. Some (all?) of the work they've done has been, intuitively, really cheap. I think they gave my 1993 Subaru new brakes and a transmission for less than $500, if I recall. Another time I brought a vehicle to them and asked "is this worth fixing?" they told me later that day "no (junk the car)." I went to my wallet to pay them and he said "forget about it."

Had them replace all four struts on my Acura, as well as rotors and pads (that I provided). Work was done quickly, and correctly the first time. Alignment was excellent, no squeaks or squeals from any of the components. Prices were much lower than other quotes I got, and many shops won't even install parts unless you buy the parts from them. Very happy with the work and overall experience. In a fix where many things can go wrong if your careless, the job was done right. Very nice.

It looks as if previous reviews of Alba have been eliminated since they relocated a few blocks up Fourth Ave. I'll be brief: I've been using Alba for 20 years and they are always honest, quick and courteous. Dimitrios and Carlos are gems in a business often populated by unsavory types. Highly recommended!

I just wanted to say that Alba motors has been my mechanic for 9 years and trust the work they do on my 1994 Honda Accord EX sedan very much. THEY HAVE MOVED TO ANOTHER LOCATION AND NO LONGER ON 4TH AVE THEY'RE AT Alba Auto Repairs Limited 301 Nevins St, Brooklyn, NY 11217 CORNER OF NEVINS AND UNION ST. (718) 403-0233 THEY KNOW CARS :) Michael
