Never again
I brought my car to Mike's Performance Garage based on the numerous positive reviews on the various web sites. I'm sorry to say I believed them.

A couple of months back I brought my car in for some performance upgrades- the installation of already purchased, new in the box, aftermarket brake discs and pads for both front and rear brakes. This was a seemingly simple job.

When I picked up the car, I noted that one of the lug nuts was damaged & pointed it out to the mechanics. One of the mechs immediately became defensive and said it had come in that way when I clearly knew it had not. The lead mech promised to replace it with a new lug nut but they had to order one. "Fine," I said and told them I'd come back the following week. I should also note that the shop owner was on vacation.

In the interim I noted that the plastic package where my wheel lock key was kept was missing. I inquired if they knew where it went, was informed they hadn't seen it but would check the shop. I also noted that the brakes were making a lot of excess noise- squealing, clunking, grinding and pulling to one side at certain times. This, I was told, was attributed to the new discs settling into position. I took them on their word but the noises never diminished.

About a week later I went back to get the new lug installed, except that they had ordered the wrong lug, a point I had to mention. Magically, they found another matching lug in their supplies. I inquired again about the missing key package, to which I was told that it was not there. Except the owner was back now and he told them to look for it; again, magically the package appeared. Hmmmm. Thank you, Mr. Owner.

The squealing, grinding, clunking continued and this past weekend I discovered that the retention clip that held the pads in place in the front calipers were both dangling loosely inside the calipers. One caliper was even missing the 2 spring loaded pins that held the clips. At least I now knew what was making the noise & causing the braking issues.

Would I bring my car back to Mike's at this point to have them fix this? No freakin' way. Instead, I went to another respected local shop and within a few minutes they determined the problem. The pad retention clips were installed BACKWARDS and again, they noted the missing spring loaded pins that held the retention clip in place. They had it fixed and checked the rest of the brakes to make sure nothing else was wrong, all for $45, not the $220 paid for the initial install.

To say I am disappointed w/the work completed at Mike's Performance Shop, particularly after the 100's of positive reviews on the web, would be an understatement and I'd caution others to take my experiences into consideration.

Spoke with Rachelle. She said the staff was great. Her sunroof came off the track, and now it opens halfway and it doesn't go any further. One of the interior lights doesn't work.

Beware of crooks at Mikes performance garage
Brought my car to the shop to fix a brake issue when I was younger and more naive to the car scene. Mike couldn't figure the issue out and charged me $250 for failed attempts to fix my problem. This place is trash, don't bring your car. BUYER BEWARE!!!

Sam said he had a lot of problems and a bad experience with this business. When he picked up his vehicle, it had a flat tire. When he left after having his vehicle serviced, it overheated half a block away. He had taken his vehicle in for service due in part to a fan belt issue and found that the fluids had not been topped off. He would not recommend them.

Rose said it was good. She went to this business to find out what was going on with her vehicle and they notified her what the problem was. The reason she wouldn't recommend this business is because the price is too high for her.

We are sorry that you felt the price was high.. The car needs a transmission & they arent cheap. There is no alternative fix for your situation.. We advised to not even service the transmission to save you that money, because the service would not fix the internal issue.. We hope to see you again.
Thank you for the review.

Prompt expert service.
Mike’s guys were able to troubleshoot and repair a problem in my ignition system. It only took them a few short hours to complete the job.

Just wonderful.
An amazing experience to deal with Mike and his team. Quick diagnostics and quality service. He even gives you a list of things that should be addressed on your car along the way. Makes one feel welcomed and wanting to use his services whenever the situation arises.

Thank you, Mike!

Fast , friendly , professional
Called about service not realizing Mikes Performance Garage was closed on Saturday . The Owner answered my call and made arrangement for me to show up the next business day. Mike explained in great detail the issues with my car and the attention to detail was second to none . They needed the car overnight to make repairs , they offered to set up a rental at a very reasonable rate . Repairs were made using high quality parts and on time !! You have to expect to pay a bit more for quality , this business is well worth the few dollars more for the service and great mechanics at Mike’s Performance Garage . If you have a classic car or daily driver this is the place you should give a chance . They treated my car like it was one of their own .

Customer Service
I have always been impressed with the customer service and the eagerness on the part of the mechanics at Mike’s to work with you and solve your maintenance issues. Knowing nothing about the mechanics of my car, it is important that whoever is working on my car I can trust. Mike’s fits the bill all the way around.
