Routine Oil Change
I tried Duricek Auto Repair after having been referred to by a friend. I really enjoyed my first experience. Nate was able to schedule my oil change just a few days from when I called. The staff were great and filled me in on the progress. One of the down sides is that they have to order parts for a third party distributor, not rare for a small garage. Still I was in and out in less than an hour and they discounted the service because of my wait. For a basic oil change they are a little higher than other oil change places, but I felt like I was getting the whole story on my vehicle and they didn't try to sell me on something I did not need. I will definitely be back to Duricek and I would recommend to others as well.

So happy to use Duriceks! Car repairs finished on time, labor is always VERY fair.

I recently had an oil change done at a big name automotive business and asked them to look at my brakes due to squeaking noise. They did a free inspection and I was told I needed back brakes as well as rear rotors. I remember having my rear rotors replaced 1.5 yrs ago so a red flag went up immediately. I decided against having them replaced and called up Duricek's Automotive for a 2nd opinion. Nate made me an appointment for the very next business day and told me if I did need the work done they could beat the competitors price. Turns out the only thing wrong was a loose brake piece that Nick replaced which fixed the squeaking noise. I did NOT need new rotors and was told I didn't even need new brake pads until next oil change! As a female I am glad I can rely on honest mechanics at Duricek's Automotive to tell me the truth and who don't try to scam money from me.

In need of a auto part that was told by other repair shops that it was "unavailable / no longer manufactured" and they hung up. Called Duricek's hoping for a miracle and there it was!!! Though they did not have the part , Nate went above and beyond! Instead of that being the end of the call (and it was after closing for them), Nate quickly called back and provided me with the information to obtain what I needed. We have used this shop many a times and will continue as we will continue to recommend.

On the Road Again!
On Wednesday my brakes were suddenly grinding bad and were unsafe. On Thursday afternoon Duricek's rushed and got my van into the shop, Nate stayed late that day to finish the job, & Thursday night I safely left for Chicago with my Van. Very professional, prompt, and courteous!

Fast, Honest, Knowledgable- everything you want in a mechanic!
I was having issues with my car starting so I changed my own battery, and continued having issues. I explained to Duricek Automotive what was happening and the noise it was making when it finally wouldn't start. They immediately suggested a few possible issues, but wanted to test them before making any immediate assumptions.
They got my car into the shop that day, they confirmed their suspicions, gave me a quote that was well under what others would charge for the same repair, got it fixed and back to me the same day.
The service was incredible. Go ahead and waste your time by shopping around, but you won't get better service, and you probably won't get a better price either - these guy know their stuff!

I was leaving an appointment around 3:30 on a Friday afternoon, got into my car and the battery was dead! I called Duriceks and Nate came out and got my car started. I then went to the shop and they ordered a new one for me.They were told it might not arrive before they close....but Nick said he'd wait till it got there. Then Trevor installed it for me. That's team work!!!! Especially on a Friday when everyone want to leave work!

We would not trust our cars to anyone else.
I arrived early and Nick took my car right in. While he was working on the car Nate and I talked about his dad and the business. My husband and I trust Duricek's to the fullest and our experiences are always positive. You are carrying on the family business just as your dad did. He was an awesome person and would be proud of all of you.

Amazing service, care, and value!
Duricek Auto was very professional, thorough and helpful. They fixed my older car's heating system and now it works amazing. After the fix, they followed up to make sure the repair was done well.
They noticed some other problems with my car, but did not automatically jump to conclusions and "fix" them like some other shops tend to do. They gave me the info to get it fixed in my own time.
Great service and a very reasonable price!! Highly recommend and will return!

excellent, honest service
After taking my truck to a big name shop for a repair and having them tell me it was unrepaiable I took it for a second opinion. I am sooo glad i did. At a recommendation of a good friend i called them. They diagnostic checked my vehicle and found a simple issue that was repaired in seconds. My truck is running great! Everyone there was friendly and honest and not trying to take advantage. I will be recommending everyone who needs repair to stop in and will not be spending another dime at the big named shop. Thanks!

Drives like a brand new car!
Duricek Automotive has been working on my 2002 VW Passat since I moved back to the Toledo area in 2010.
I'm getting ready to sell it, and I knew a few things needed fixing before putting it up for sale. The braking was very jumpy (bad rotors), and there was some knocking when making sharp turns (tie rod ends were shot).
The Duricek's got my car fixed, looked over the entire car as if they were doing an inspection for a new purchase, and advised of other things to consider prior to selling.
When I got my car back, not only was it below what I anticipated the price to be, my car drives so nice now, I'm not sure I actually want to sell it!
Thanks guys - I always drive off smiling!

Had several electrical issues that they diagnosed and fixed. Pleased to have things working right.

The staff at Duricek is the best. Got my boat in when they said, looked at everything I asked and treated it like it was theirs. Highly recommend them.

We started out with a $2300 estimate for repairs on our 2000 Honda Accord from a dealer. We asked you to quote the same job...$600 less. Then when you actually did the work, you determined that we did not need all that work done! THANK YOU! Especially with the holidays coming, it was greatly appreciated!!! You guys are great!

Shhhh! Best marine service around!
I almost hate to let out the secret because we have had excellent service within a day of us calling them with a problem. The staff is super. They have always impressed us with their timeliness, their professionalism and their experience. We have a 1977 Searay - I would imagine not the easiest to find parts and also be versed in a boat of this age - but they were. We have recommended them to others in the area and would not think of using anyone else. The Duricek boys have always had the time to talk to us and give information as little things pop up during boating season - and have always - from springtime to winterization given us excellent marine service. I seriously give them 10 out of 10 stars. The only thing I wish they would add would be shrink wrapping in the fall for all of us boaters - then it would be an 11 out of 10! :-)
