Galati's specializes in foreign car repairs. It is amazing how fast they can preform the repairs on the cars. The only drawback is that they are so busy it takes time to get in the schedule. However,when I had repairs that totally disabled my car they always worked me in and finished the repairs quickly!

Auto racing fans have seen Mike Galati win the SCCA runoffs and the Speedvision Touting Car championship. His shop's work is as good as his driving. Highly recommended. (Hint: I think the Ferrari decal I put on the back of my Subaru Justy might have helped get the A-1 engine rebuild they did.)

I had a Subaru dealership tell me the cause of a 'check engine' light was that both my catalytic converters were damaged and needed to be replaced. Cost - $1,300. I took it to Galati's and they found the REAL reason for the light was a faulty oxygen sensor. Cost $300 for everything which fixed the problem. Also, they charge labor costs based on the ACTUAL amount of time they spend working on your car instead of on some "standard" which always is greater than the actual time. They've always done excellent work and have always been coutegous and helpful.

As a female, it is difficult to find somebody that will be honest and fair with you. I went to them because a friend referred me to them. They do excellent quality work at what I feel to be fair prices. The service manager, Tim, is extremely honest and always does quality work.

My family has always trusted Mike & his team's expertise and have used his service for about 20 years. Even though Mike isn't in the office as often as he used to be, he'll still remember you even after a few years.

I really like this shop because you receive dealer knowledge, expertise, and service and you don't have to pay dealer prices. They are knowledgeable, and honest and take the time to explain and suggest options that work for me, not just to make a buck. From what I can tell, they do everything the dealer does, just cheaper.

GREAT EXPERIENCE..I have used these guys several times and they have always been honest, competent, and professional. Always provide me with an estimate and communicate every step of the way..Pleasure to deal with from making the appointment to picking up the car when its done. Class act, my car has never run better, and will never go anywhere else

I would not recommend this business. I spent over $2000 and my car is not compeletely fixed. The staff was rude and they had my car for an extensive amount of time. Only to still have a light on when I specially told them what the issue was. I’m not happy and I wish my experience could of been better. I would not recommend this establishment for repairs. I had first called this company because I took my car to a shop nearby and they couldn’t fix my car because of the brand. I then took it too the dealer and they did a diagnostic and told me exactly what needed to be fixed. Unfortunately the dealer cost was too high so I called Galati and told them what I needed fixed. The gentlemen at Galati proceeded to tell me he thinks it was something else which the repair he completed didn’t do anything to my car. He fixed the heat but it’s barley pushing out . They also gave me a hard time with the payment and told me I had to pay cash! Please run ! Don’t waste your money like I did . If I could give zero stars I would!!!
