Friend-Lee Automotive


We offer honest and reliable auto repair, and we like to think we do it right. But, don't just take our word for it-

Our customers give us rave reviews!

I have been using the services of Friend-Lee Automotive for over eight years. Matt and Jay provide great service and they are very trust-worthy. I can't say enough about them. My father recommended Friend-Lee Automotive and I have been driving from the Westside for my car maintenance and repairs ever since. It's worth the drive!

Friend Lee Auto is a place you can trust for excellence and fast service at a fair price. I have been going to Friend Lee Auto-since I bought my first car in 1990 and have never been disappointed. That car ran for over 12 years - much in part to the excellent preventative maintenance at Friend Lee Auto.

Now that I have a family and two cars to worry about, we have had major repairs done as well as regular maintenance and Matt and Jay have always taken good car of us.

Friend Lee Auto has maintained my car in excellent running condition for about five years. Matt and his son Jason are reliable, very experienced and always deliver good service. I have a 1998 Mazda 626 and wishing to avoid a new car payment took my car in for "whatever needed to be done" to avoid having to get a new car. I am always well pleased with the honest, professional treatment rendered at Friend Lee Auto. Their prices are reasonable and being a single woman I have to rely on my mechanic for straight forward information. I highly recommend this garage for any mechanical needs you might have. They are FABULOUS.

It had been hit & miss trying to find a reliable and trustworthy mechanic to service my vehicles when we moved to Bedford 30+ years ago. After having my car serviced at Friend-Lee Automotive, I found out how thorough and reliable they were and have been a customer ever since. Now more than 20 years later, and a recent move to another area, I am still a customer and value more than ever the knowledge and integrity they bring to their business. Great job.

Thank GOD I have found an honest car repair shop. When something is wrong with my car I don't have to worry about getting ripped off by some sleazy fly by night car repair shop. I always go to Friend-Lee where Matt and Jason are ready to fix my car and explain to me in simple terms what was wrong and give me the old parts. I never worry about car repairs - I know where I am going to take my car every time. Friend-Lee Automotive - The Best in the Business.

Our family owns three cars. We've used Friend-Lee for all out-of-warranty work, even when our cars were new, and have been customers for many years. It's such a pleasure to do business with people who keep their appointments on time, finish the work on time, and there are no surprises. A "simple" oil change and lube is so thorough at Friend-Lee that if you have even a license plate bulb out, they will find it and replace it. Your average new car dealer does a poor job of checking your vehicle, and I won't even go into what those "quickie" oil change places do.

Just last week, we were having trouble with the battery failing on our Chevy Lumina, so we jump-started it and took it to Friend-Lee. When we picked up the car at the end of the day, I was astounded to learn that my bill was a small one for diagnosis only. I never remembered that I replaced the battery 18 months before and it was still under warranty! So because of Friend-Lee's good record-keeping and honesty, I saved probably close to $100, something that I am surer never would have happened anywhere else.

You can trust these guys to the ends of the earth!

I was visiting relatives in the Cleveland area when I noticed noises in my Honda whenever I stopped. I was able to get my car into Friendly Automotive at the recommendations of my relatives, and my front brakes were shot. Friendly also inspected the rear brakes and told me they were fine and didn't need replacing. Friendly showed me my old brakes and they were really bad. I was able to pick up my car and drive back home to New York the next morning. I'm certain the cost of the new brakes were far less than what the dealer would have charged, and the fact they recommended not replacing my rear brakes made me wish I could find a repair shop like Friendly where I live.

Friend Lee Automotive delivers quality workmanship paired with easy-to-understand explanations of services performed. The personal attention is worth the drive.

Dealerships offer assembly line performance and service; Friend Lee Automotive offers everyone attentive service with care!

I will always use Friend Lee Automotive no matter how far the drive and highly recommend their mechanics.

We use Friend-Lee Automotive because we have a small Fleet of cars and trucks and when one of them needs repair it usually means we need it ASAP and Matt will work with us to get it back in service ASAP and done right the first time.

As a long time customer of Friend-Lee Automotive, I can honestly say I trust my family's safety in my cars maintained by Matt and Jason. They are very knowledgeable, professional and the maintenance/repairs are affordable. Their knowledge of car maintenance is regularly updated and they are certified. As an AAA certified facility I know I am getting the best maintenance. I have recommended them to family and friends for car maintenance and will continue to do so.

My pride and joy is my red Mustang GT convertible and I will only have Friend-Lee Automotive maintain it. They know what they are doing are keep it in its best running condition. Matt and Jason are certified repairmen and backed by the American Automotive Association for quality of maintenance work. I highly recommend them.

Friend-Lee Auto has given me top quality care since 1993. Mat and Jayson have always gone above and beyond in the service of my autos. They have also provided peace of mind in this crazy, fast-paced world with their dependability and absolute integrity! Anyone I have ever referred to them have also become life long customers. If the American auto makers could close these two men the U.S. car industry would once again lead the world market in car sales.

I always stand by what I say. If anyone would like me to site examples of my own worry-free care I have received from this auto repair shop owner & his son.

I've utilized Friend-Lee Automotive Repair over 20 years. I find the service top quality, fair price, always on time. I would not go anywhere else unless they (Friend-Lee) directed me.

I've been a customer of Friend-Lee Auto for over 10 years. The work is always A1 and I always leave satisfied. My profession requires constant travel and my automobiles must be in superb condition. I receive the service and auto care I need without worry at Friend-Lee. There's only one place for auto repair and that's Friend-Lee.

Friendly-Auto is one of the most reliable and trusted businesses our family has had the pleasure of visiting. All maintenance and repairs are explained and the work done with great care and reviewed with the owner. Great for working families with flexible drop-off and pick-up times to accommodate busy schedules. One of the true customer "friend-ly" businesses left.

I have been totally dependent on Friend-Lee for 15+ years for all my car repair needs. The folks there have always been completely competent, very fairly priced and always concerned about helping in any way they can. Friend-Lee is the best car repair shop I have dealt with in over 60 years of driving.

Chuck K.

The mechanics at Friend-Lee Automotive have the knack of explaining a car's problems in layman's terms so a customer always knows what work has to be done when repairs are needed. I always have known what work will cost before work has been done and I really appreciated that fact.

Mechanical work has always been excellent. I have never had to take my car back for the same problem - the problem has always been taken care of the first time in the shop. Prices are fair and work is completed promptly. I will always trust Friend-Lee Automotive with my car repair work. I am a very satisfied customer.

For most of 15-20 years, I've been bringing my car to Friend-Lee Auto for regular service. The regular maintenance and expert repairs have made my cars last for a long time. (Current car has 99,000 and I plan on keeping it 'til 150,000 or more.)

What I like most about Friend-Lee is that I can trust Matt & Jay to always be honest and fair. They don't try to rip me off by faking repairs. They will advise me on future maintenance needs and what to expect. I've been very satisfied with all of the work & services performed here and highly recommend anyone who wants a mechanic they can trust & have confidence in, to bring their vehicles here. Scheduling has always been convenient & Sat hours are a plus. I will continue to bring my car here for as long as possible on a regular basis.
