The most honest, knowledgeable, sharp mechanic you will come across. Pleasant to deal with, always with integrity. I brought my 2007 BMW 327i in, and they went above and beyond with the service required. My car was full of realtor gadgets, signs, papers, and I received it with nothing out of place. Totally trustworthy, explain everything clearly…. can’t say enough great things about these guys!!
My wife and I own a Mercedes Benz 500SL and a ML500 and we only felt comfortable taking them to the the local Mercedes Benz dealer for service, even though we felt that they were overpriced and the service mediocre at best. About a year ago a relative told me about Masterclass Automotive. Even though I was hesitant at first I did take my wife’s ML500 for a second opinion. The local dealer had recommended major repairs to correct a transmission fluid leak. Without telling the technician at Masterclass what the dealer had recommended he confirmed the problem, but at a fraction of the cost. I have been going there ever since. They are all very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. The place is very clean, and if you make an appointment you will be in and out in no time. I highly recommend them.
Want a certified dealer-trained auto technician without paying dealer repair prices? This is the place to go.
Owner Ronald is a clean-cut, polite, clearly knowledgeable and experienced mechanic who is venturing out on his own. His shop is centrally located not far from Miami’s Downtown & Brickell corridor, and specializes in BMW and Mini as well as other European brands. Since I gave the shop advance notice, they were ready to troubleshoot the vehicle the minute I brought in my ’06 Mini Cooper.
The car was ready by the end of the day and came out as good as new. I saved 30% off dealer prices, with the peace of mind that the same tools and same certified mechanics were used.
I think we all have the same concerns when it comes to auto mechanics, is he any good, does he seem honest, and finally, how reasonable is his pricing. These are questions that in this economy are not only more important but also still difficult to address, and do so satisfactorily.
Well, I’m here to tell you, if you own a BMW and live in the area or nearby, this is the place for you and your car! Heck, even if it’s slightly out of the way, this is the shop! My car is now out of warranty, and being a high performer, it’s very important the mechanic get it right across the board!
The dealership was quoting me $2,000 for the Inspection II alone. Well, Ronald from MasterClass Automotive cut the quote in half, literally. Thankfully, the extra cash left me room to replace the old belts, rear brake pads, differential seals and liquid, plus a wet-sand detail job and more (belt pulley, etc.).
With over 12 years experience as a dealership mechanic, he’s now officially the “car whisperer…” Man he’s good! He had owned an M3 personally which gave me much reassurance, but I simply didn’t expect to find the car as I did. The engine bay was immaculate, as was the rest of the car, especially the paint! My 2003 looks like it rolled out of the factory this morning! And boy does she run sweet =)
They’re family owned and run and extremely nice and friendly! I know he works on VW, Volvo, MB, and others, so give this place a serious look and if I were you, I’d also give them a try, you won’t be disappointed, promise!
