Happy Auto Repair Customers at CSE Automotive

Thank you to Bill Sherwood and his crew for their professionalism in assessing any issues with my car, giving an accurate estimate of costs, excellent repairs in a timely fashion and provision of a comfortable waiting area as well. My car is running just fine. I very much appreciate your attention to detail and your friendly attitudes.

I have brought two vehicles to CSE for shop work and frame welding. Both times they did an excellent job. The work wasn't cheap, but you get what you pay for. They also stand behind their work unlike a shop that may not be there in a few years. They have done an excellent job on an old diesel land rover that requires pretty specific maintenance. I will be using them many years into the future.

The folks at CSE Automotive are great and I highly recommend them for your auto maintenance. Been their customer since 2015. The first job they’ve done for me was mount and balance new tires on my 2008 Infiniti M35. They have also repaired my wife’s 2014 Jeep Wrangler punctured tire. The prices are reasonable, the work is done competently and most importantly, I TRUST Bill and his team.

What a great automobile shop. I have been taking my Nissan Altima to the shop for a few years now and CSE automotive is nothing but honest. They provide great service and answer your questions with patience. The work they do is quality and affordable. There quotes are fair and they are an upfront car garage. I would recommend CSE Automotive for any vehicle inspection or car problem

I'm a little ocd with my car but these guys have taken care of my cars time and time again.  They're professional and get the job done right. A little pricey but the work is flawless. I've been coming here for the last 3 years and I highly recommend it to others.

Easy 5 star rating. CSE Automotive has always been there for me. They are experts in the business and extremely trustworthy.

I have been a customer since the 80's. Bill always goes the extra step in preparation and finishing a job. I  have had much custom work done along with regular maintenance. Jobs always done timley and to my satisfaction. If your looking for a good honest repair shop that can handle damn near any job, CSE should be on your list.

I had a 5 star experience after going somewhere else first. The other place gave me a $2100 estimate for repairs and I searched for a better price which led me to Repairpal.com on Cars.com where I found CSE. They had a better price and good reviews so I took my car there. It turns out that I did not need the repairs that the other place tried to scam me for. A thorough inspection of my vehicle was done and I got a print out in addition to a verbal explanation of the condition of my car. The staff is very friendly and I felt as if they treated me like family. I will definitely go back there the next time I need any work done on my car.

I would definitely recommend CSE for repair services or inspections! I had a car that needed an enhanced inspection done. A process only select shops can perform in the state of Pennsylvania. I had been told it would be a long and difficult process. Bill and his staff walked me through the process from start to finish! It was a pleasure to deal with real mechanics, who can diagnose and fix a cars problems, not someone bolting on random parts suggested by a computer program.

Just the BEST VDub guys anywhere. They indulge my relationship with my blue baby. Mercy.

They literally untangled the mess thar a previous mechanic made to my Volkswagen Vanagon. I recently did a big trip up through western Mass and into Vermont for a few days of camping and riding and the van is running better than ever and what's more I was getting about 27 miles to the gallon on the highway. Amazing! Before they went through and straightened out the electrical/engine work it was almost half of that, with frequent breakdowns. They are very knowlgable and very experienced with older Volkswagens and are quite expert  in getting them back to their original spec of efficiency and enjoyability! You get what you pay for with this shop.

Have had Bill do work for me since the 80's, always goes the extra step in preparation and finish on any job they tackle. My car is there right now, and the work is excellent as usual. Thanks Bill for all the great work over the years.

I have entrusted my cars to CSE for over 20 years because they have earned that trust through honest, knowledgeable, accurate service at fair prices.  As a woman, I have had previous mechanics try to take advantage, but I'm more knowledgeable than I look so I can test them.  Even when the first car I brought them had a challenging problem that made other mechanics give up, CSE stuck with it until they discovered the solution and got it fixed.  I have never been disappointed with them.  Now I live 30 miles away but still go back to CSE because I haven't found anyone better! Greatful Customer

Brought my Nissan Pathfinder into them for frame work 10 years ago and they did a great job. Recently brought in my vintage Land Rover to have some rusty brackets removed and new ones welded onto the axle and to have bushings replaced. EXCELLENT WORK. I will be seeing them again I am sure. (It's a Land Rover.)

my car home - trustworthy, competent, reliable, respectful

We've used CSE more than a few times and always feel confident in their work & pricing. How lucky to have an honest shop I can rely on. Most recently they fixed a tire for me (picked up a nail or some other piece of metal) - they noticed I was up for an inspection and were even able to squeeze that in so I wouldn't have to be put out further by trying to find the additional time for that appointment. They always explain everything and I feel confident in their experience.

Great customer service! We have been bringing our cars to CSE for years and have never been disappointed. Recently had an engine light on my Subaru and came in without an appointment... Bill was able to diagnose the problem and fix it for us. Fair price, professional service! Love family places like this!

I moved to Oreland, Pa. about 8 years ago where CSE is located in fact it's only about a block from where I live. I drive a Volkswagen Tiguan & because the VW dealerships aren't very close to where I live I needed to find a repair facility that was skilled at servicing my kind of car. From the first day I walked into CSE to inquire if they could handle my service needs I learned from Bill the owner that Volkswagens & other German cars were their specialty. So, I came to learn that he & his very skilled staff could handle any demand I needed in order to keep my car in good running order. I'm 56 years old & have used many service facilities, but none of them match the kind of service that they have provided me with over the time that I've used them for maintenance & repairs. When they do  a repair or service it's always done right the first time. I would highly recommend CSE Automotive to anyone who is looking for an auto repair shop that they can depend on & trust.

Been a long time customer of cse from my vw rabbit though my Miatas cj7 to current suv. We had few issues over the decades but CSE is my go to repair shop always and custom or basic repair I give to them and have never been disappointed with the results.  Highly recommend Dale DeFrancis Oreland Columbus and Rochester  He's one of the best I have ever found  turned my Miata into a kick butt scca car not that I could beat Bill on his worse day

Nice guys; honest.

I have been bringing cars to CSE for years. Bill and his guys are very professional and do very good work. They do everything from minor repairs to custom fabrication. I have been bringing both my dodge pick up truck and my porsche boxster to them for years now and am a very satisfied customer. I highly recommend them.

Took my 2008 350z in because of an engine light.  Thought for sure it was going to be crazy expensive as another place told me my catalytic converters needed to be replaced.  CSE ran a test, reset the computer and told me to drive it a while to see if the light comes back on. It's now over 3000 miles later and no light! If I had listened to the first place I took it to I'd be out at least $2000! Thank you CSE for your honesty and it's great to now have a mechanic I can trust!

Wonderful people. We were 14 hours from home and started having problems. Always makes one nervous not knowing anything about anyone in the area. The issue I had could have VERY easily been covered up and made to look like something three times what it actually was. But this shop is honest, period. They even gave me a ride back and forth to our hotel so I didn't have to sit around and wait. Very friendly staff too that make you feel welcome. This was a fantastic experience and I highly recommend.

Great service! Bill was very helpful and made sure I knew exactly what was happening with the car at all times. And they did a great job. If you need your car done this is a great place to bring it! Thanks a lot, Bill. I will be bringing my car back to your shop.

Any time I feel a small shake at speed on my steering wheel I turn to cse. They offer the best in road force balancing. I had my car lowered this time using H&R springs and cse did an excellent job as usual.  Had rear brakes done with the rotors and pads being replaced. So the total tally was $1200.  A little on the expensive side but if you want quality work done this is how much it costs.

Don't normally review mechanics but these guys do a good job for a pretty decent price.

Have had both my cars in this week. First time using CSE for actual car work but had them remount tires on new rims a few weeks ago. All the encounters have been top notch and I am more than satisfied with the service. It's nice to find a place with the care and personal service we used to see regularly in businesses of all kinds. This really is a gem in Oreland. Bill is easy to work with and really enthusiastic about cars. I will be back.

Bill was very helpful getting my Dodge Durango exhaust straightened away. Ended up having a left over Thrush muffler welded in place of the falling apart OEM muffler. Welds look clean and sounds 50X better and now enjoy driving this gas guzzling monster even more. Will be going back for future work. Thanks Bill!

Always fair and excellent work. Highly recommended to anyone.

I've been shopping for a vintage VW and these guys have been really helpful by sharing their knowledge of these vehicles. I called on a Saturday, not knowing it was after hours and Bill called me back from his cell phone. I thought this was really proactive towards earning and caring about customers.
