A honest garage and a family business. Have been dealing with them for 10 years.

My family has been taking our cars to Bruno's for 23 years. What a find! Bruno's Garage reminds me of my dad's garage, and he was a truly brilliant mechanic. They listen, they explain, and they go out of their way to help a regular customer. I have never been turned down in an emergency, and if I just show up for something really little, they always help me out. If it's something they can't do, they send me to other reliable, reasonable shops. I can't tell you how much I count on them. And the neighborhood is NOT bad. There's tons of public transportation and I have routinely dropped off my car, taken a bus to work, taken a bus back to Bruno's at the end of the day, and driven home. Couldn't be easier, and there is no reason to fear going in and out of the neighborhood.

Bruno's Garage has been my repair location of choice since the first time I tried them. They have always impressed me with their prompt service and very reasonable prices. Once, I had a problem with the brakes sticking on my 1990 Tercel. It turned out to only need an adjustment to the emergency brake lever, for which they charged me $2.00! It's the only time I ever paid for an auto repair in cash. Also, they are very close to the bus stop. This makes it easy to drop off the car and take the bus to work without needing a ride from someone else.

This place is a little out of the way for me, but I started going to it, based on co-workers' recommendations, after being overcharged at the first repair shop I tried when I moved to Pittsburgh. I always found Bruno's to be reasonably priced, pleasant, and honest. I had an old Volvo and they always checked to see if they could get me a used part instead of expensive new Volvo parts, which was great since I knew the car was old and wouldn't last forever. I've finally gotten a new car with a warranty, so I'll be going to the dealership for repairs for a while, and I'm a bit sad not to be taking my car to Bruno's anymore. The one negative of this place is that they're a small garage and their good service is not a well-kept secret, so the wait to get your car fixed can be long. If it's an emergency, though, they can usually fix it within a few days.

The best mechanics I've ever used. This is a family run business, 3 generations now. I started taking my used Honda Del Sol to them when I was a student at Pitt. 10 years later I'm still going to them and so is my husband, father, and anyone else with an oddball problem. Only issue is you have to schedule work 2-3 weeks in advance as they are always busy. But, when they get your car, it's in and out in a day, and done right.

I love Bruno's and wouldn't take my car anywhere else. They do great work, their prices can't be beat, and if something doesn't need to be done, they don't do it. They will let me know if a certain repair is looming in the next year or so but they don't ever do unnecessary work.
