What our clients are saying about us
We have established longterm and stable partnerships with various clients thanks to our excellence in solving their automotive needs!
Avus is a super clean, friendly, and professional environment. Got a general service as well as two failing engine mounts replaced here and the service and work was exceptional. Will definitely be coming back (1997 Porsche 993 Cabriolet).
Called and scheduled an appointment due to a coolant leak. As usual, I was treated professionally and timely with a few suggestions for optional repairs. Avus has been taking care of me and/or my wife for over 15 years and I will not trust anyone else with my/our vehicle(s).
