  • I was ready to give up on my X5 until I stumbled across Almost New Auto on the web, I wanted one last opinion before I got rid of it.The dealership was just going to start throwing new parts at it, and they gave me an estimate of $3800 (it's only worth 12k in trade). Thankfully Almost New Auto took a little more time to diagnose the problem and saved me 2/3 of the dealership est. I won't be going back to the dealership.

    After the parts were replaced the mechanic showed me the parts that had been removed and why they were failing. He'd even cleaned up the engine compartment!

    I'd give Almost New Auto 5/5 stars for the work carried out and for keeping me in my BMW. Better than dealership service. I recommend this mechanic to all of my colleagues and friends with imports. A guy you can trust not to rip you off and who takes the time to explain the problems to you. Excellent service for a fair cost.

  • I wouldn't take my BMW to anyone else. I drive nearly an hour and a half to have my car repaired the right way the first time. Honest, great mechanic. Willing to go the extra mile to make sure that your needs are addressed. I would recommend Rob to anyone looking for quality work.

  • After years of doing our own car repairs on BMWs, we know what is involved and also know that Robert is the best mechanic we have ever encountered. Robert's work is superior - - our vehicles (and he has worked on 3 of them for us) have never run better! Just as important as his mechanical skills is the fact that Robert is very honest and ethical. Robert performs his work on time and for the amount he quotes; there is no subterfuge or dishonesty. We were very fortunate when another local businessman/friend referred us to Robert and Almost New Auto. Now we are very pleased to call him friend and to refer him to anyone we meet. All of us depend on our vehicles to get us around and take care of us. There is nothing more frustrating when our vehicles have problems or break down altogether. We can't even begin to tell you how comforting it is to know someone like Robert who is able to take care of our vehicles and put us safely back on the road. What a Blessing! We ap preciate Robert Palmiter and Almost New Auto for providing superlative service and support!!

    Recently had Robert Palmiter at Almost New Auto perform an oil change and brake flush on my Porsche 911 Turbo. Having previously used Robert for service and repairs on my Mercedes 560 SL, I was we'll aware of his exceptional customer service, attention to detail. quality of work, and reasonable pricing.

    Through conversations with Robert prior to my Porsche purchase, it was apparent that he possesses extensive knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm for Porsches. So, when time came for service, there was no question that Robert would perform the work. As expected, the experience was great. The requested service was done at a very fair price and his routine thorough visual inspection off the car provides added piece of mind.

    I could not be more pleased with my Porsche service at Almost New Auto and will absolutely continue to use them in the future.

    Robert Palmiter provides the best customer service that I have ever experienced with my Porsches in the 20 plus years that I have owned them. This includes dealers and Porsche racing shop specialist. The attention to detail,willingness to problem solve until the real presenting problem is identified, excellent workmanship and fair pricing are routine. Robert and Almost New Auto are willing to go the extra steps to make auto maintenance a more pleasant experience. Robert's method's of communicating the status of the repair is unique and informative. You know precisely what the issues are and the cost on a real time basis. I will use Almost New and especially Robert Palmiter for all of my Porsche needs.
