I had an issue with my previous car before I ever went to them and called them on a whim for advice. They spoke on the phone with me for 20 min and didn't even try to get me in for an appt. I ended up taking my car back there and have been going to them ever since. They never tell me I need something when I don't and were able to fix a problem with my tires that two other places (one being a dealership) could not fix right. It's family owned and they are good people. I even brought my new car when I traded my old one in. Trustworthy mechanics! Thanks for your help always!

Top notch work and professionalism especially on German vehicles

I took my car into Performance Automotive at 10:30 Thursday morning for an oil change. I had called the prior day to schedule an appointment in case they were slammed -- didn't matter because I was the only one there (two days after Christmas may have had something to do with it). My experience couldn't have gone better -- I was in and out in less than 40 minutes. They were very straightforward about the price upfront and didn't try to up-sell me anything. They said I needed to new tires asap. Topped off all the fluids.


The gentleman I met there was Keith - his dad started the business back in the 70's or 80's and they both continue running the business today. This is a great family-owned, family-run business and I will definitely return. In fact, this will likely be my "go-to" place going forward.

I first went to Performance after getting an outrageous quote for work from Mag Mini. The folks at Performance are down to earth and honest with you about the work that needs done and what can wait. This saved me loads of money on breaks that didn't actually need replaced. They do quality work, and I'm usually in and out in less time than they estimated. Can't say enough good things about this place.

A great experience! My husband and I needed a "pre-purchase" evaluation on a truck we were considering buying. Kurt was so nice to deal with, and he arranged for the evaluation to happen the same day that I called! The report that they e-mailed to us was quite detailed, and they were honest, informative, and helpful. I would recommend this shop to anyone needing help with their vehicle.

If you have an old BMW or any import you probably already know they need some love at times and you can't just take them anywhere. If you want a shop you can trust, where you know your in good hands definitely go to performance automotive. When I needed some things fixed Curt literally laid it out for me based on importance. Given my car's a 2003 and I don't want to throw a bunch of money into it he was frank with me about what really did need attention and what could wait or I could survive without. I seriously call him all the time just to get his opinion on things, my husband and would not even consider buying our next car without his input! All I can say is they are best!! Truly honest-not just out for quick buck, knowledgeable, and do work you can rely on.

This place is great.

I've had to take my car here more than once for two different kinds of repairs and both times have been stellar.

You deal with one guy, Chris, who is very helpful and knowledgeable. He shows you the parts that were replaced and explains everything that was done and why. There's no "hidden" charges or fees.

Both repairs were slightly major and they offer 12-month/12,000 mile warranties, but I've never needed to have them replaced.

They work mostly on German cars, which, anyone who has one, knows they can be difficult when it comes to repairs, so having people who specialize in this area is very helpful.

These people take great care in the work they do and I'm always very pleased with the results. Any future repairs will be done here and I suggest anyone with repairs to a German car to have these people handle it.

I am from the Massillon Canton area and frequently I am sent to Columbus to work at my job. I have a 2008 Mini Cooper and went to leave work on a Friday with the hopes of driving back home to Canton for the weekend when my check engine light came on and my car stalled. I took it to a firestone and they ran a diagnostic check on it and told me there was nothing they could do so I called the BMW dealership and they told me to come in on Monday and it would probably be very expensive. So on a whim I called Performance Automotive and spoke with Curt. He told me that they were going to be closing within the hour but if I could get there he and his technician would do what they could to see about getting my car up and running properly. So I rushed my car straight in and without any weight at all they took my car into the garage and figured out that it was just low on oil. They added oil and ran to diagnostic checks on it and also gave it a test drive. Within 45 minutes my car was running like it always has been and I will be able to return home to see my family now. Curt and his team were fantastic and they have definitely gained a customer for life. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

We have three Hondas - two Civics and an Accord - and have over recent years found Performance Automotive to do reliably good work and to deliver on time and on estimated price. They communicate well the status of the work. I am happy to recommend them.

The staff at Performance Automotive went above and beyond what may be considered their job description for me and my husband! My husband came in with a flat tire, not knowing where else to go. They got him in right at 5 o'clock and stayed late just to help him out! I would highly recommend the staff at Performance Automotive for their knowledge, experience, and willingness to help their customers!!

I own a small independent used car dealership and I bring my European cars 50 miles to have them serviced and repaired here because of the level of expertise regarding these cars and particularly because of how pleasant and helpful they have been to both myself and the customers to whom I have recommended them. I simply cannot say enough good things about them. They have always gone above and beyond.

Performance Auto is a shop that specializes in European and Japanese vehicles. They have been in business since 1982. They are highly skilled, honest and go the extra mile to make sure your vehicle is repaired properly. They do everything from oil changes to engine changes and everything in between. Chris, Curt and Nate are great guys if you're in the market for a shop to have your European or Japanese auto worked on I would highly recommend Performance Auto.

My air conditioning was blowing hot, but a recharge from Valvoline didn't fix the problem. They suspected something else was wrong with my ac system and suggested I visit a full service shop for an inspection. I called Performance Automotive based on the other positive reviews I saw online, and I'm so grateful I did. Everyone I spoke with was professional and polite. The technician, Kurt, informed me my car type is prone to a certain malfunction, and ordered a new relay for me right there over the phone, just in case, without even seeing my car. I was able to bring my car in the same afternoon, and what do you know! It was the relay! Took the gentleman 30 minutes to fix it, and for a very reasonable price. I really am so thankful to Kurt and to the team at Performance Automotive. If I ever need something done again, I'll be calling these guys first. I hope you give them a chance, too.

I highly recommend this business. I'm new in town. My car needed a B3 service. I researched different shops and saw the positive reviews for this company. I scheduled an appointment and took my car in. They looked it over, gave me a quote, I accepted the quote and they serviced my car. This was the first time I got the feeling that the business actually cared about the job they were doing for me. I highly recommend them, especially for single ladies who don't have a spouse to handle their car maintenance.

This is the best mechanic I know hands down. They have helped me over the past 4 cars I've had and been able to diagnose and fix every single problem for reasonable prices. I'd trust them with any car.

I brought in my 2011 Lexus IS F to get a clucking checked out and PAI was able to pin point the noise in a very reasonable amount of time, and even showed me first hand what was causing it. Nothing but professionalism, kindness and respect from these guys. They are amazing at what they do, I would not hesitate to bring my car here for any kind of work, especially for a performance oriented vehicle such as my F, even though I live clear on the other side of Columbus. Waiting room was very comfortable and homey, plus their personable personality made it that much better. Their shop is also very clean. As someone who works in the industry, I can comfortably say this is an above and beyond shop with very respectable prices.

Took my Z4 to these guy based off a friend's recommendation and it was worth the time. No lie its hard to go to a shop for the first time without concern about being taking for a ride. Pun intended lol. Curtis took care of me. I crossed the recommendation with some mechanic buddies and the costs were spot on. I was excepting a decent bill since it was a BMW but to my surprise, it was very reasonable. I also asked if they could have everything done by a specific day and they delivered it a day early. Very happy with my experience and 100% will be taking it back for future work. Great job Performance Automotive. You just earned yourself repeat business.

Bought a 2017 VW Passat used at a dealership. Was given free oil changes at the same dealership. After 1st change the dealership where I bought my car couldn't figure out how to turn off sensor light and put screw in wrong for my pan. Drove directly from dealership (not vw dealer) to Performance Auto where they immediately knew how to turn off sensor and fixed the mess the dealership caused. They know their stuff and wont take my car anywhere else going forward.
