Getting your Car Repaired Edison NJ

Nowadays it’s hard to know where to turn to when you need your car repaired. Especially since there is so many options from dealerships, big chain speedy lubes and independent repair shops. Whatever happened to the the neighborhood garage?

At Lou’s Edison Motors we strive to be that neighborhood garage of yesteryear while staying on the cutting of technology so that we can repair all makes and models and take care of your car or truck’s needs.

These drive through corner lube shop’s have no clue how to repair you car or truck and frankly have no interest in it. They want you to come in and pay for an overpriced oil change and to pay for air filters that you might not even need replaced. Beyond that, they really aren’t built to help you. Those type of places are the auto repair equivalent to a Mcdonalds or Burger King. Fast-Food repair shops and just like the food, their fast and convenient (sometimes) but when it comes down to it, they’re bad for your long term health.

Then of course there is the dealership route. Taking your car to the dealership can be a scary experience not only for you, but your wallet as well. If they can’t upsell you on unnecessary repairs then they’ll try to put you in a new car! They don’t want to help you as much as they want to hit the quotas passed down from their franchisee. It’s hard to trust these guys and trust is the number one element of our approach at Lou’s Edison Motors.

Lou is a local guy who has the residents of the Edison and Ford’s best interest at heart. He is a member of the esteemed of the Automotive training Institute and is constantly learning new ways to help his customers while sticking to those old school values that got him into the business over 25 years ago. If you live in the Edison, Fords or Woodbridge Township area and have a car, truck, SUV or Hybrid that needs to repair and get taken care just like the mechanic who took care of your family automobile when your were growing up.

Auto Repair Edison New Jersey

Auto Repair Edison New Jersey

I recently took my car into Lou’s Edison Motors and was very pleased with the service I got. Lou and his service writer Sean were very nice and upfront with what they were going to be checking out and how much it was going to cost. Normally when I go into a shop, I feel like I’m being taken advantage of. I don’t know much about cars and usually the service writer can sense that and therefore I get the feeling that they are going to charge me for a bunch of repairs I don’t need. This was not the case the at Lou’s shop.
First of all, Lou might be one of the funniest, charming, warm guys in all of New Jersey. He has a great sense of humor and was very warm and kind hearted to me even though I literally had no idea what he was talking about when it came to my car.
Even though, it’s technically located in Fords, Lou’s Edison Motors has been serving the Edison, NJ area for over a couple decades years having recently located to their new shop which, like I said, is technically in Fords but is still very much in the Edison area. Lou joked with me that “Thomas Edison invented everything, except car repair” and that’s why he had decided to start his shop. LOL.
After about 45 minutes of looking around in my car, it turned out that I only needed new spark plugs and Lou was more than happy to give me them at cost. He and Sean explained to me why I needed them and even though I still couldn’t explain to you (the reader of this blog) why I needed them, it totally made sense while I was there. LOL. Anyhow, my little Nelly Belly (10’ Elantra) has never run better which is good cause I’m heading out to the beach in a couple of weeks and don’t want to be stuck on the turnpike! LOL. Thanks Sean and Lou! If you’re looking for good, trustworthy people to work on your car or truck repairs, then I highly suggest Lou’s Edison Motors. Heck, you’ll probably come out of there with a couple of new jokes to tell your friends as well!
