These guys are the most honest mechanics I have known. They treat customers with the utmost respect and seem to know all of them on a firstname basis. Their prices are quite fair, and I am often surprised at how low my repair bills are. They have even made some minor repairs on my vechicle free of charge, and will give good advice regarding the necessity of a particular repair. They have always taken the time to explain what they are doing to my car, to answer questions I have regarding auto maintenance and repair, and to check something out when I bring my car to them with an immediate concern. I have been taking my vehicles to them for five years, and their work has always been excellent. I will soon be moving from Bowling Green and will miss them very much.

They kept my second or third-hand college student cars running for 13 years. The one time that sold me on them forevermore was back in 1987 or 1988 when they spent a number of hours and installed a number of different parts trying to get my 1980 Dodge Omni 024 to run once more time. The problem had them stumped. (The first and only time they were in the years I took them my cars.) They pulled out all the parts, called me up, charged me nothing, recommended I take it to the local Dodge dealer, and called the dealer with what they had tried! I left Bowling Green in 1996 and sorely miss those guys. (Unfortunately without their care, I had to buy a new car so I knew I whatever was wrong was most probably my fault and could deal with.) If Marion Newman and crew are still in charge there, you are putting your car in reliable hands. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

These guys are great! They don't charge as much for their servicing that they could (maybe I shouldn't say that), and they are very realistic about the work your car needs. After visiting three different shops in BG over a few years, I am convinced that these guys are the best. Besides that, they've got a sense of humor.

Marion Newman, and now his son Scott who took over the business, have worked on our cars -- Mercury Sables that began as newess and became aged and a couple elderly Toyotas - for 15 years. The service has been exemplary, quick, but thorough. And when they can't handle a problem they not afraid to say so & recommend who can. They're honest but what can be done. Marion faithfully kept my old Chevy Nova running, but always would ask when he gave me the keys back: "You drive that out of town do you?" They're also the kind of employers who work prom night, so their high school employees can have the night off. In a town with several good independent repair shops, they shine.

I live in Toledo, but work (heavily) at BGSU, so I needed a place to get the car fixed during my workday. Newman's was recommended by two coworkers. Before I moved here, I was used to bringing cars in for $200 problems that would somehow turn into $800 problems. Newman's was quick in their work, and they contacted me a couple times to let me know exactly what was going on and why. The major problem got fixed and a minor problem was diagnosed all for under $200... I was thrilled.
