    Desi mechanic went an extra mile to address my COV solenoid and heater shut-off valve issues. He explained in detail whatever is going on with my vehicle, so I can make informative decisions.

    My car went down with what seems like a damage battery. After trying long to follow Porsche's direction to access the battery and failing I called to get a tow. The issue is with dead battery the hood release will not function to access the battery.

    Called Chris with the issue and he stayed late to help me sort it out. He spent more than 1 yr wrestling with the car until battery issue worked it out. Nice example of friendly shop.

    It was time for my car to have an oil change and the 20k miles maintenance. I was shocked by the price that Porsche charged for, so I called other shops, but none guarantee to reset my service sign because latest kind model. Desi Auto Care could and their prices were fair; they finished the job ahead of time, and changed what they promised. I'll be going back for sure.

    Mechanic was straight up about clutch issue and said replacing it would mean replacing the entire clutch and it will be a costly work (which wasn't really necessary). There was a small part bent but the clutch was not slipping so, he asks me to just live with it until it actually breaks and saved me money until then. Fair enough!

    My visit was through a referral from my Police Officer-Friend. This time I had no time to resolve issue myself and I had my worked on at an amazing shop by luck. Andrew completely delivered all promises within a real time frame. My all brake replaced, fuel injector replaced, all spark plugs replaced, and oil change! This was all done via email and phone calls and today I finally got to meet the crew behind it all.

    The shop is clean, with plenty of coffee-food drinks! I spoke to Katelyn who was super friggin' helpful. If you're looking at this shop and never heard of them, then I'm 100% sure you'll be happy just as much as me.

    Absolutely no complaints!!

    My problem was, my car was leaning to the left side. They inspected everything related to the steering system and replaced the air suspension. My air suspension is working properly now without any issues. Both are very polite and patient throughout the process. Overall, great shop for your Porsche needs! I really admire these guys!

    Terrifying excessive engine smoke coming from my Boxter while on local street. I was lucky enough to hear about Desi Auto Care from a Porsche Club “community “ and Desi Auto Care get a lot of good word of mouth and repeat customers because of their service.

    Chris perfectly fixed my car, my "square coil" needed to be replaced. It was old and was causing one of my cylinders to misfire apparently, it supposed to replace the square coil more than once every 10 yrs. I wouldn't know I just take my car to the dealership twice a year and assume that they're covering all of the bases during those inspection maintenance checks. As it turns out, dealer is not covering all of the bases. Anyway, I'm sorry customer I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Desi Auto Care to a friend. BTW, what does Desi mean, anybody know? Awesome service.

    My Macan had a strange vibration that I wanted a second opinion on. Chris was very helpful over the phone + in person. He was able to give me a diagnosis in 1.5 hour which was cool. He gave me a tour of the shop as well. Shop appear to specialize in Porsche of all generations. I'll come back mainly because of the good customer service, fair pricing and they know their P-Cars.

    Interesting fact- the shop front itself is simple but they have a huge shop in the back that is unseen from the white horse Pike.

    This independent shop is next to Del Buono's Bakery. Our car needed major tune up, had issue with air conditioning , engine, oil burning, brakes etc. We waited a week for an appointment, as Desi is that popular. We had a thorough assessment done and sent an itemized breakdown by email. We went through each item and agreed that each item was legitimate. We waited patiently, few days later we had our baby back in great shape. It was a fair price and that is for everything-brakes, air conditioning, engine....

    Don't look further! Chris is your mechanic!

    He specializes and I've seen all kind European cars in the workshop. This guy is passionate about his job and you can see it when you speak to him. He is extremely knowledgeable with any problems you may experience with your EUROs and you can tell he's been doing this for a long time. I'm at the point where I don't think twice about his assessments. You will feel that your dollars is being well spent and there will be NO post-purchase remorse.

    I have a Carrera and have worked on it extensively myself. It needed an engine oil and gearbox oil change and as I don't have a hoist (and I don't want to lie on a cold floor) I decided to take it here and have these mechanics do it. I have given the place five stars for friendly, honest environment of this clean shop.

    Now the Battery/Alternator warning light came on telling me to dealer. I was in a bit of panic and after being turned down from a dealer because they apparently busy for next 2 weeks, thankfully Drew agreed to run a diagnostic test even though it was very late in the evening and shop was almost closed. He was extremely helpful in running the scan. Drew was even kind enough to check out all my fluids and tire pressure. Next day he finished the job. He even gave a treat for my dog (Max) before I left.

    Great place for all your Porsche services. Not only does it repair newer models but also service 90's Porsche's. The waiting room is full with a wide variety of refreshments. Took in my '97 Boxster for a fuel filter replacement and four tire replacement was quick. He couldn't fit me in this week, so next week I will be taking my Boxster in for two major surgeries!

    Porsche service does not necessarily have to be very expensive and doesn't have to be Monday-Friday only. (Desi opens on Saturdays too)

    I brought my car for an electrical issue and was pleased with the service I received. I was out within three hours after doing a multi-point safety inspection (lights, exhaust, fluids,brake conditions, suspension/under chassis, etc) and he only charged me half of what the dealer would! I looked at the receipt and realized that most of what I paid for was the parts, not the labor. Will bring my Boxster back on next maintenance schedule.

    Needed an oil change and brake pads (along with two leaks under the hood) I knew I had to begin the search for a new shop.

    I had been burned by my old mechanic and was a little weary of trusting yet another shop with my car, but when I called to get a quote for an oil change and brake pads, Andrew was spectacular. He explained what an oil change service included and threw in an inspection as well. After the service and inspection had been completed, he went through the work that my car still needed and gave me fair quotes on the spot. I’m not a car-savvy by any means and what is usually stressful ordeal turned out to be a nice experience. This shop is definitely one of the best around, and they’ve just got a loyal customer.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

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.

    Sam and his team do a fantastic job. When I purchase my Porsche, after two weeks the engine was smoking. Andrew diagnosed it quickly and was able to fix next day along with a few other minor issues, and for less than HALF the cost a dealer would.

    The knowledge, the cleanliness of the shop is definitely positives. When I needed a place to store the car for vacation, receptionist was able to offer a smart suggestion. I've been back there a couple times now, would not take my baby anywhere else in the area. If they are real busy, they may take longer to repair your car - they always pickup phone within 3 rings! Amazing!

    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.

    Came here first time to interact with my future Porsche technician. Sean and Mike were extreamly helpful and did answer all my questions.

    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.

    Just great service at fair prices!

    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!

    Without a doubt the place to bring your 911, Cayenne or any Porsche you own/drive.....so when that ticking quits in my turn signal and that rude noise fails when you open the door. I got $3000 quote from Porsche dealer.

    So I brought this unusual problem to Desi Auto Care with some patience. Sean got it done....they have a fix $38 part and $240 labor and problem solved....give them a shot call Desi....
