This is the worst experience I’ve ever had with any car place. I took my car to them about 5 times for an inspection and they failed me every time. I know that they did certain things like put a nail in my tire and then fail my tire. The reason is because I just got a brand new set of tires that were previously inspected before putting them on. Also I just took my car to them a few weeks ago hopin...

I was referred to Hillmuth by another auto shop for my inspection. They were very nice and answered all of my questions before I scheduled my appointment. On the day of my appointment they were very prompt. There were a couple other people in the waiting area with me. Each person was approached when their car was done. If there was no issue, they checked you out promptly. If there was an issue, th...

They always give great service and they get service scheduled quickly. They also have loaner cars that you can use if you co-ordinate it before hand.

We've been using Hillmuth for the past 10 years. The last time we were in they did an oil change, and cleaned the build-up in one of the operating systems in the engine.

It was $4,000 to fix it. I said, "I am not doing that!" They said, "it wasn't worth fixing!" We were so blown away that they were honest, meticulous and when over every line of items that had been wrong and missed by the previous people that we had been to see. It is like a doctor for your car. They take pride in what they do! They are just great and really nice people!

They are like number one! They are superb, I just can?t say enough good about Hillmuth. They are phenomenal, we don?t go anywhere else. We take all our cars there, all 5 of them. It was great! They never do anything without your permission, they always call you ahead of time, they give you options. They tell you how long you can go before you need or must do the next thing if you don?t have the mo...

Great! I used the Glenwood location. I took my car in on Saturday, but had to wait until Monday for a part. They gave me a loaner car, which was was much appreciated! When I pick my car up on Monday, they charged me less than they had estimated by about $65. Everything is working fine now, I will definitely use them again!

First of all, they found that my battery system was OK which is no small thing in a hybrid. They found what was actually causing the problem and performed the engine service needed. They also recommended some preventative service which was reasonable and important to do. Instead of spending thousands to replace a hybrid battery system, my cost was about $750.00. I felt that they were knowledgeable...

Description of Work
I had major issues with my Prius. I was told by another mechanic that the battery system needed replacement. In researching hybrid issues, Hillmuth was recommended to me by an expert in this field. I live in Baltimore and this was not close as I had to take my car to Columbia. They diagnosed the problem for me and performed the service.
