I have 2 cars that Lou @ Tony & Bros has been taking care of for the past few years. I am extremely lucky I found this shop. Not only Lou is very knowledgeable, but he is one of the rare few mechanics who is extremely honest. I recommend all my family and friends to go to his shop.

I took my 99 Jetta to these guys after i bought it from my manager for a couple simple repairs. She'd been taking the car to them for years so they came highly recommended. They did not disappoint; the repairs were done in a timely fashion, they cleaned the leaked oil and coolant off of the engine AND I got the 20% discount (see above). I'd send any of my friends/family with euro cars to them.

I have been servicing Audis at Tony & Brothers since 1998. When the reverse lights in my 1996 A6 started popping fuses at a rate of one per week Stevens Creek, Rector, and Carlsen all gave me ridiculous quotes to even look at the problem ($1500+). Driving by one day, I decided to pull in and see if these guys could give me a better quote. Tony and Lou's uncle was there and after I had explained the problem nodded and told me in his Croatian accent "I know what problem is." He promptly opened my trunk and pointed to some wires. In disbelief I asked "are you sure?" Shaking his head he walked back into the shop and returned with wire-cutters and electrical tape. He quickly cut the offending wires, stripped them, twisted them back together, and then taped it all up. My reverse lights were still out and the passenger side mirror did not auto-tilt down when I shifted into reverse because the fuse was blown. The fuse was quickly replaced and everything worked! When I asked how much the bill was I was told in the same Croatian accent "don't worry about it" and waved off. I have returned ever since then with my Audis and my friends' Audis. Tony and Lou are EXTREMELY knowledgeable. They focus in on exactly what is wrong and fix it. They provide solid advice that should always be followed. They also provide preventative maintenance that keeps you rolling problem-free. I have never been to a more honest shop. If you have a problem that they can diagnose and fix; it is done. If they do not think they can fix it right they will tell you that and send you off to a dealer. If you are trying to do something yourself and you mess it up, don't be surprised if they do not want to deal with it.

I've been to these guys several times with my Audi A4, and they've always been quick, professional, and reasonably priced. They explain things in as much detail as you want, and I haven't had a problem with any of their work over 4 years (on a 120,000 mile Audi, that's not insignificant). Also, when the budget has been tight, they've offered alternatives and helped me decide what I'm better off spending money on now and what I can put off for a couple of months.

My Audi Allroad has been leaking little engine oil for a while which as you can imagine could be quite irritating. I went to a couple of European auto repair/service shops to get estimate, and just off the bat they recommended changing cam tensioner and valve cover seals (which is very typical in the Audi 2.7T engines) - estimated to be around $800-$1900 (some said it was the Turbo Oil lines, engine galley plug etc. etc.). I went to these guys based on my friends recommendation. They did not disappoint me. Lou diagnosed that the oil leaks were very very minor and that there was no need to do anything - though he said if I want he could stop the leaks completely for a estimated labor time of 4-5 hours, (Since the leaks were so minor and that it was of no adverse consequence, I did not take any further action). Lou also talked at length on various aspects of maintenance etc. We had an interesting conversation! Not to mention that he charged me only 30-minutes of labor ($50) instead of the initial quote of 1 hour - a small thing, but goes to show their ethics. The short of it - I really liked these people for their openness to help out in the most practical manner. As a person who understands quite a bit about automobiles, I fully agreed with Lou's take that not everything needs to be fixed without compromising the safety and performance of a car. Before you take your European puppy anywhere else, definitely go to this place for an opinion.

Great service, so nice, and they took great care of my baby:-) They actually called me to let me know that I didn't need a brake job that I'd requested (due to another oil change place telling me that I did) which they very well could have done and made $500 off of. But no, they said my brakes were ALMOST NEW and that the other place had screwed me over, saving me a ton of cash! They also got me a deal on some pricey tires with a neighboring business Great for VWs, very fair price and they got my car in and out in less than 2 days! To agree with another user, its like I have a brand new car now! Thanks Lou!

I went here on a recommendation from a couple of folks at work. One of them is a reviewer, Bobby K. I have to agree 100% with Bobby's experience. I have an Audi A6 4.2, they have done a valve job, timing belt, tune-up, and numerous oil changes. I also have a 2001 Jetta VR6 I bought for my girlfriend from them, way less than KBB, was a steal in my book. The girlfriend loves it, nary a problem with it. If you like good honest mechanics and own a European car, I highly recommend this place. BTW the valve job was ~$4k, about half of what a dealer would have charged, and I get the same guarantee that the dealer gives on work. Do the math...

Holy crap! An honest mechanic! I took Lou my Audi allroad complete with evil demon. He looked at it for a day, sprinkled some holy water on it and said "I'm not comfortable with this problem, take it to the dealer." Had I taken his advice, I would have had my car back in about a week for only $1500, but I thought I knew better and tried to fix it myself, and a couple other shops. Two months and almost $3000 later, it's finally working. Next time I will take Lou's advice to heart. Next time, there won't be any other third party shops other than Tony and Brothers. Several of my coworkers also take their Audi's here and their feedback is also overwhelmingly positive. They always do excellent quality work at a fair price. These guys know all the common problems and are quite adept at fixing them. Lou even knows how to repair the dreaded cam tensioner oil leak in a way that makes the repair last twice as long as the dealer's repair job.

I called them based on a review from yelp. I was very satified with their service. Took my 03 volkswagen passat there for repair because the dust cover practically fell off and was scrapping the ground. I called Monday, took it to Lou and Tony on Tuesday at noon. They ordered the part right away. Got the car back at 5pm. They gave me a couple of options and let me decide the best for my budget. I like how they are friendly and honest about my options and costs. I will definitely go back for future service and oil changes. thanks guys!!

I'm never taking my VW back to the dealer again! They were honest with me and took care of my car at less than half what the dealer quoted me. Definitely support these nice guys! They really stand behind their work.
