    The repair service ended up being a warranty claim that had to be handled by a Porsche dealership, but Sam hooked me up with the Cherry Hill branch and was extremely accommodating in providing all information needed for the warranty claim, even though he was not making any profit from it. I'm from Atlantic City area, but would go back there in a heratbeat if I ever have a Porsche problem.

    Why pay a 160% markup at the dealer, when you can bring it to these guys. Affordable prices, no nonsense. Will go back for more repair service after two weeks.

    In the nearly 19 years that I have owned this car, this is the 1st time I have had work done outside of the dealership. The repair was a complete clutch replacement (Princeton Porsche dealer price 2K)

    Shaun gives extra attention to repair quality. His shop rate $60/hr less than the dealer and that he can be a bit flexible in pricing of replacement parts (Note - these are the same OEM or OEM quality parts that the dealership uses and are sourced from the same parts suppliers) He would not release the car until he was satisfied that the job was done well and met "as new" specifications. My new clutch feels great.

    Sam and his team do a fantastic job. When I purchased my car, week went by and the engine was smoking. They diagnosed it and fix two more minor problems next day, and for probably half the cost a dealer would. The cleanliness of the shop is definitely positives. When I needed a place to store the car for long vacation, Sam offered a suggestion to me. I've been back there a few times now, would not take my baby anywhere else.

    Even though they are real busy, they always answer phone by 2nd ring..!!

    I had my son, who is at Rowan University, bring his Porsche there with a hard-to-diagnose electrical problem. After a battery change didn't work, Chris took apart the dash and ended up rewiring an after-market stereo system.

    Since then, I've brought the car for a starter, a fuel pump, and steering vibrating problems. They don't milk their jobs. They get your car in and out.

    I took my car in Aug '18 for work on the clutch. Which I will say they did fix well and my car drives very good.

    And now in Jan '19 the master/slave cylinder went out and he replaced both the master cylinder and the slave cylinder. Some of the tips he gave me so I can do minor work myself and save money. Shaun is very easy to deal with, he always answers my calls.

    We're very pleased with the service.

    We initially heard about this shop through a family member. Coming off a bad dealer service experience, we were looking for a place to have basic maintenance and repair on my wife's Porsche and decided to give them a try.

    Repairs are very costly unless you can do the work yourself. Fuel pump, coolant tube, chain tensioner, brakes, water pump, and all had to be replaced at Desi Auto Care including electronic steering lock failure.

    As always, Shawn and his team at Desi Auto Care do an outstanding job keeping my car roadworthy. With this kind of backup, you can own a second hand vehicle for a long time and have no worries.

    Shawn is akin to an experienced physician - you articulate the symptoms and he knows instinctively what the problem is….he and his team will get you back on the road “tout de suite” at a very competitive price. This time around it’s a broken rear drive train shaft (89,000 miles), a common problem with Cayenne’s.

    After being ripped off by Porsche dealer for the last time. I found this gem. Chris was a gentlemen he took care of engine oil leak. Outstanding service, honest mechanics and great prices.

    I drop my Porsche off at Desi Auto Care with the service engine light on and I also knew that I was also going to need some brake work done too. Sean called me a little while later to let me know that the issue was my cam sensor and that I had worn my brakes down to almost nothing (not good news). When I went to pick it up Sean walk me through the work he did and showed me all the new parts and old parts. He also popped open the hood and assured me I was fine. Location is great since I live 3 miles away.

    While driving from Office Depot parking lot, check engine and add coolant lights came ON. Stopped, added coolant from Auto Zone, drove home parked in driveway. Out to use car again, noticed coolant on driveway, started engine coolant leak allover on driveway. Called Porsche dealer, not covered under warranty, also 3 weeks backlog in getting repair.

    I decided to try Desi Auto Care after Sam responded to my email inquiry on a Sunday 8pm. Monday I had a tow to Desi Auto Care. They replace all coolant pipes and water pump. They are considerate of your scheduling needs, communicate clearly, offer practical solutions and does first-rate repair work at reasonable prices. A great shop to take your Porsche when it's off warranty.

    The left power seat in my Porsche doesn't work (same problem happened before in the last Oct), I checked fuse-seems ok. I checked the vehicle manual-but there is nothing else about fuses. I have checked that there is electricity for the seat.

    I finally made the appointment. I had the pleasure of meeting Drew, he plugged Porsche-computer into the car and after diagnoses he informed me; this is due to a fault with the seat control module which needs to be replaced. I also experience the rapport that they have with other shops and vendors, which makes communication seamless and stress-free. I was glad to give Desi Auto Care my business.

    I went to Desi Auto Care after I thought my Porsche Boxster thermostat needed to be replaced. After spending 40 minutes with my car Ryan made me aware that there was nothing wrong. He explained more in depth as to why and gave me preventive maintenance tips. The shop is very clean and full with State of the art diagnostic system. How much I was charged? Nothing!

    After my Porsche misdiagnosed at the shop on Black Horse Pike, Michael found out original diagnostic code was really much bigger problems with trans axle and called the warranty company (they were not going to cover the repair initially) to must get it done the repair. Once the representative show up at Desi Auto Care, Michael impressed him how the diagnostic code was misleading, the company representative recognized the problems and he approved necessary repairs to my satisfaction.

    I decided to try this shop-Desi Auto Care based on pcarshops.com reviews. The ignition on my Cayman was sticking, and it affected the air and heated seat warmer thingy...

    After sending an initial email, I got a quick reply back and despite the shop is fully booked for a week Sam was able to squeeze me in three days later. It was difficult fix and I never felt pressured to get additional work done. Busy shop-Easy folks.

    The dealer could not find an oil leak on my Boxter-S after 3 visits. Shawn fixed it next day. My cousin had an electrical issues on her 993 Porsche which the dealer could not trouble shoot after many visits and Shawn found the problem--parking brake was tripping electrical switch. Repair was done in late evening. I have few more positive stories but you're better off discover yourself.

    Andrew fixed the air-oil separator on my car in in last holidays. It has been working great. This time was here for annual service and check engine warning light was on. He did the diagnostic and explained that the air flow sensor was broken because of age. He gave an affordable estimate with 2years/24K miles warranty including parts and labor time. I agreed to fix it. He also takes care of small thing as complimentary.

    Sean has been attending to the various idiosyncrasies of my Porsche. I live in King of Prussia and it's worth the 50 minutes drive to know my car is in the hands of someone who truly loves and appreciates German cars. He knows what makes them tick and his knowledge is priceless.

    I took my car at state inspection center through emissions, which it promptly failed on many counts. The estimate at another car place, based on the emissions report, was upwards of $760. Desi auto care as usual, was honest and fixed everything so my car would pass for under $190.

    Racheal always busy - phone in one ear, invoice in another - and trying to take care of cars and customers at the same time, she is always pleasant and caring.

    This shop is a pillar of light in the dark and scary world of German car repair.

    When I hit the brake pedal my car's rear end instantly pulls hard to the left. Laurel Spring-shop (my regular mechanic) couldn't find the problem.

    Andrew diagnose, this is due to the right rear caliper not functioning properly That's the most likely suspect! Caliper piston(s) may be sticking and overheating right rear pads thus shifting brake bias to the left rear...Also possible the rear rotor caliper just isn't applying same amount of pressure on the pads. Repair is done. I'll be a loyal customer. Rachael's customer service was very friendly.

    I found a puddle of water on the carpet floor of the passenger side. I have been reading about clogged drains and that they are relatively simple to unclog but I cannot locate them.

    Google pointed me to desi auto care.

    Technician explained to me: Draining holes are small and they are reachable after putting roof to service position on the half-way and metal cover must be fully up. He cleaned clogged drains than rest drain system by spilling water and checking, all water went out on the shop's floor in front of rear wheels. If not I was in big trouble becoz some "i-smart" Porsche engineer placed control unit of alarm on the floor under the driver's seat. Water in cockpit is a big problem. I never thought that someone could be so stupid and invent such position for sensitive electronic device.good people-good price.

    I came back to them for an exhaust upgrade this month for my Porsche - akrapovic muffler with carbon fiber tips + fabspeed secondary catalytic converter. The result is amazing, sounds better than any Cayenne on the road, absolutely fantastic job done by these guys!

    NO "PORSCHE TAX" here.

    Shawn and the team at Desi Auto Care are a class act. My first experience with them came shortly after purchasing my 06' Carrera. At that time my left engine mount broke while entering a ramp causing the engine to sag out of the vehicle. Needless to say I was mortified and thought I was in for a expensive repair bill. I ended up speaking with Shawn and Andrew the next morning and they eased my nerves and sent out a tow truck to pick up my car.

    Turned out my vehicle had some corrosion and the motor mounts needed to be replaced as well an O2 sensor that had been ripped out during the incident. The mechanic there actually took his time to show me the damaged parts and explain exactly what happened and why these items needed fixing. All work done with 2 years parts and labor warranty. Total bill? Much more reasonable than I expected.

    Took my proche 996 carrera 4 for an oil change with inspection, and to look into a noise coming from the rear wheels when the car drive past 30mph. Turns out the rear wheel bearings needed to be replaced. Sean was very knowledgeable, he brought me back to the garage while my car was on the lift and showed me how the failing rear wheel bearings seized in the axle housings requiring the knucles from the transmission to be pressed out. In addition, we replaaced the axle lock nuts which had a lot of corrosion and boot clamps. Moreover, the drive belt, and gas cap were replaced.

    The car runs very smooth now, couldn't be happier! Want to thank Desi Auto Care for their excellent service, was never pressured to do anything I wasn't ready for. They gave me great prices and insight on how the car runs overall (cae was just purchased a few months ago).

    Best!
