I have been dealing with S&S for years. Great honest guys. My sister's muffler was having a problem making noise I was out of town and I told her to take it to them. I was telling her maybe her muffler might be cracked. She took it there and there was a piece of metal that somehow got caught and was making noise. They just removed it for her and that was it. No Charge. I was thinking now how many places would have seen a young lady come in and not have made something up and charge her an arm and a leg.
Besides that in all my years of going to them, they have been professional in everything they do. They do excellent work. They even fixed the problem I had with my Benz.
I am taking my time to write this because I really feel like when you deal with S&S you are dealing with honest professionals.

I wanted to get my car inspected by S&S because it is so close to me. However, I was dissuaded when I called up and was told that since it was 12:30 pm on a Saturday and the inspection guy went home at 1 pm, he "[didn't] feel like doing the inspection at that time". Fair enough. I guess they don't want my business.
I went to West Side Tire & Automotive and they did it without a problem.

There is a popular saying that 'Do not judge a book by its cover" and juding a book by its cover was exactly my impression when I chance upon S & S looking for a place to have my VW Passat inspected. The guys took it into the garage on a cold November morning and I was shocked at the modern machines they had to inspect my car.
In addition, the folks treated everyone like family and did not charge as much as others I had called. Although, that was my first time being there, I very much felt at home with the mechanics at S & S.
I highly recommend them because of their professionalism and 'warmth.'

I've had work done twice here - alignment and tire mounting. The work in general is fine, but some attention to detail is somewhat lacking.
The first time I went for an alignment, I came home and found a vice grip still attached to one of the tie rods. I returned it the vice grip.
Second time around was to get tires mounted. I left the shop with a pulsating brake pedal. The rear drum was improperly aligned after removing and mounting wheels causing the pads to contact at an oblong rather than a circular motion. Owner ensured fix before leaving again.
Shop is generally kept clean, owner is very nice and the work seems fine, but a little more attention to detail might prevent these things from happening.
These guys are pretty good I try to avoid the shops such as Firestone complete auto care and Pep-boys because they do not hire real techs lol as, for this place they are good at what they do and they also have reasonable prices that are not completely marked up I am sure somethings are expensive, but overall they are what a mom and pop repair shop should be local dependable and reasonably priced and they manage to get the job done right the first time.
Have to respect the craft being applied here, just look to the owner's responses if in doubt. He is attempting to explain complex details to people who don't get it, I do.
Been there a couple of times and that requires a trip from Morristown, worth it to deal with professionals.
They stand behind their work and will make it right. The problem is, in my experience it was never done right the first time.
My first experience with West Side Tire & Auto was simply to put new tires that I bought from Tire Rack. Gino suggested doing wheel alignment at the same time. I was impressed with the new wheel geometry machine they just installed and Gino's knowledge of the craft, so I decided to buy that extra service. Unfortunately, after the realignment the car was over steering and the steering wheel was off-center. When I pointed that out, Gino personally took the car for a test drive and although he felt there was nothing wrong with it he agreed to redo the alignment at no additional cost. Thankfully, it was done right the second time.
Our second experience was replacing break pads. Once again I got persuaded to replace rotors and breaking fluid at the same time, which would triple the price of the job. To me the rotors were thick enough to keep going, but Gino pointed out a lip that formed on the outer edge of the rotor and claimed that just putting new pads in would make the breaks squeak. He promised to put "high quality stuff" in, so again I bit the bullet and did the whole thing. Sadly, another disappointment. At least one of the breaks was making rustling noises and a rubbery residue was accumulating on the rotor. After a week of driving and no improvement the car had to spend another four hours in the shop when they discovered that the rotor was uneven or something like that, and had to order new ones in. So, I am doubtful about the quality of the materials and I am thoroughly disappointed with only superficial quality assurance on part of the owner.
If you promise top quality it is not enough to make it work, you should make it right and the first time around.
Update: I actually forgot one more very positive experience where they spent a good hour to find a very elusive leak in a tire. Fixed it perfectly where another shop gave up after three attempts. +1 star. I want to love these guys, but I hate wasting time.
Great service, great people, great experience. I needed good tires in little time and Gino Jr. did exactly as he said he would. Highly recommend this shop!
