  • Maurice (Lex-Man)1 month ago

    Bar none - this is the best automobile shop in New Jersey and certainly the place to take your Lexus for any needs. I have a Lexus approx 82,000 miles. Given my older brother specializes in Japanese autos and also owns his own auto repair shop in Arizona, servicing my car at a high-quality location with knowledgeable and personable staff has always been a priority.

    They are able to appropriately identify and triage issues requiring immediate repair versus issues that may require maintenance at a later date. Jessica always contact me in advance to authorize repairs. This is in stark contrast to many shops which will look for small flaws to nickel and dime customers. I would recommend D.A.C to anyone without hesitation.

    I am an owner of used Japanese Auto Sales in North Jersey. I have a customer that needed work done locally as I could not bring the car back to my shop for repairs. After finding them online for having a good reputation, I contacted Desi Auto Care. I explained my situation, got a quote, and had my customer arrange to have the repair done. Everything went smoothly, I appreciate Shawn's assistance. If I need work done in the local area, I will sure reach out to him again.

    I have been going to Desi Auto Care and had them take care of 3 of my vehicles including 92 Jaguar XJ12! They are outstanding in technical capability as well as customer service.

    I recently had a problem on a Lexus that would have cost nearly $1900 for the part alone at dealer. Sam, without any prodding by me, found another source for the part at a fraction of the price. The part was located in South Philadelphia, acquired and installed the same day.

    It is rare to find such genuine concern for the customer and his cost of repair, especially in Lexus specialist.

    My dashbaord lit up on a rainy morning with Check Engine, VSC and Trac OFF. The owner's manual just said to take it in for repair. As a young woman car problem is one of the things I fear the most. I had not found my own Lexus mechanic yet and stumbled across Desi Auto Care online. I picked it for its closeness to my office. Shawn was super honest and down to earth. He fixed the problem and performed the 90K Service for way less than the dealer would have, and even threw new windshield wipers since mine were falling apart. He stayed within his quote and got the done before they closed.

    I was ready to go to work, but my Lex-Baby would not start so had AAA drop it off. Called Sean at Desi Auto Care and he said he will diagnose and report me details. He pinpointed the issue which was the fuel pump. He quoted me a price (I compared in Google-Sean's quote was the cheapest) and had it fixed the next evening. He also fixes my mirror switch issue and said good luck! (I wasn't charged for mirror) Thanks- Hinata

    This was my 3rd visit here to Desi Auto Care in Stratford, NJ. Dropped off my Lexus with the issues: Warning light on dashboard, warning light for headlight, tire pressure alerting and oil change needed.

    You can imagine my surprise when I was told that the warnings had been reset, the low beam was just a bulb disconnected, tire pressure inflated and really only thing I needed is the oil change. Honest forthright Lexus repair shop. Got my business for life.

    When I noticed very big oil leak around engine, undercarriage and on my driveway. Two warning signs came up (1) oil pressure (2) engine oil message. The VVT-I oil line is known to be defective on this models, says Ryan. He replaced oil line in timely manner with low cost.

    They don’t have the fancy snazz of a dealership, but the Lexus expertise and down to earth service is definitely here.

    Whenever engine is cold, my car may start than stall, sometimes start and run at very low speed RPM.

    Finally I got an appointment with Andrew, he explained the cause, and it was a dirty idle air control valve under throttle body which modulates airflow to the engine. He said when valve becomes dirty, engine don't get proper airflow. He replaced idle air control valve. It's a very smooth ride now. also he recommends me changing air filter at least once a year. Very friendly staff, they remember my daughter's name too. How sweet!

    Drew rescued my Lexus AGAIN after the transmission failed. I made the mistake of taking my car to the dealer for an oil change and inspection SPECIAL COUPON (a.k.a Rip Off Coupon) the dealer service advisor told me there was an oil pan leak and will cost me $2450 to fix and will take 10 days to get my car back. Took it to Drew, he replaced the gaskets, seal the leak and changed the oil & filter. He fixed in two days with huge saving.

  • S.McFadden1 year ago

    I always prefer dealership for repair, but no more.

    Lexus-Princeton suggested $1800 plus in repairs/maintenance, most of which were not really needed. Drew offered a 2nd opinion and ended up replacing just one CV BOOT for $250.00, which Princeton Lexus would have charge me $790+ to replace. He repaired my car with original Lexus parts, and saved me more...Luckily I'm working in Kennedy Hospital-very close to this shop.

    Desi Auto Care is my shop I use to service my RX330. Master mechanic Shawn has helped me out in a pinch countless times. He is a true professional and very knowledgeable. I remember one day after leaving the Cherry Hill Mall there was a construction metal piece in the middle of the Route 561 and shattered my oil pan. I had the car flat bedded to him and he stayed late and also had an oil pan in stock. He always provides me complimentary food-drinks. Dealer quality experience all the way.

    Took my GX 470 a few months ago for timing belt, water pump, and the 90,000 miles service. Mike did a great job on my car. Car still runs smooth. He even looked at my wife's Audi's check engine light free of charge. I would recommend him to anyone who owns Lexus or Audi. 2 yrs warranty on repair and nice waiting room filled with kind food FreeBees!

  • Lukas Schmidt1 year ago

    Finally a good mechanic close to my office and our new home. They could easily have told me it was the more expensive issue like water pump-timing belt etc...When actually it was a noisy pulley and they also replaced my serpentine belt for the cost of the belt since they had to remove the old one to get to the pulley. Honest and quick work what more do you want from a good mechanic? Desi auto is busy though, repair bays & parking always full, but you know that business is good if all bays are full.

    Humbly

  • Jasmin Cereghetti1 year ago

    In June driver side rear door had stopped locking and unlocking unless I did it manually. Lexus-Mount Laurel informed me that it was the door lock actuator that was no longer working and needed to be replaced. It would cost over $700. So I decided to just manually lock and unlock that door. Week ago, the passenger side front door had the same issue.dealership gave me a high level quote that it would be about $1500 to fix both doors.

    Given that there is more complexity for the front door lock, the front door lock actuator replacement costs more than the rear door one. Thankfully Desi Auto Care started working on the repair, they noticed that there was a switch that was just unplugged on the rear door and so replacement NOT needed. Only the front actuator was replaced. So I was only charged the half hour labor for the rear door. My total for both doors $520 which made me happier though it's a lot of money just to ensure your car locks and unlocks properly. Why didn't Lexus recall these actuators? Probably since no one reported an injury or death from it.

    No BS. No up-sell. Down to earth guys. I only trust them with my Lexy!

    Here is my situation. ABS, VAC & Brake warning lights all ON. I'm driving on NJ Turnpike to my job and brake malfunction warning came on while traveling at 65 mph, very scary. Took car to my regular shop-Desi Auto Care and he diagnose and quoted me "feel good price" to replace hydraulic brake actuator on my Lexus. Job was done accurately!

    Apparently, this is a common problem with '07 LS 460

    i needed some work done on GS 430 and stumbled upon this shop on Google-God. Set up an appointment with Sean, he was super nice and found what dealer had already told me was wrong with the my Lexus (needed lower control arm No. 2 replaced on passenger and driver side) he quoted me significantly lower than dealer, which was supposedly giving me "deal" with their price for being a repeat customer.

    the work done by the time he said he would! and shop was very clean...a positive experience.

  • Kyle Innamorato2 years ago

    Long story short I was driving and my Lexus started smoking. Luckily I got home. My oil had leaked out so I had to call AAA. They towed it to Desi Auto Care, as I feared that I would be paying arm & leg for my car to be fixed. They called me and let me know it would be under $60 ! My oil pipe had a hole in it so it had to be replaced.

    When I picked up my Lexus, Shawn was nice enough to explain what happened and what he did to fix it. He was genuine and really nice.

    Receptionist nice young girl rang me up and offered me free refreshments.

    I had taken my dear-Lexus to Desi Auto Care to take a look at brakes, which I had driven way too long without replacing pads.

    Andrew was honest with me and said there may be issues with the rotors and calipers. He gave me a great price to replace the rotors and pads, and even repaired the caliper (rather than replace) to save me $400.

    He was completely open and honest during the whole process,

    He is my Lexus Guru !!

    These guys are no-nonsense technicians. When they gave me my Lexus estimate they were thorough with what they thought was wrong, and why. i felt like i was getting an honest answer, not some fluff-piece upsell. for $650 I got the water pump and brake booster fixed, plus another $95 to get spark plugs 'n cable replaced (according to my brother : a possible reason for why car would lug when accelerating from a stop) the car runs fine now and is very responsive. Despite the distance I will gladly go back to Desi Auto Care for future Lexus issues. the only drawback is that it's too far from my house.

    Eh, no big deal
