I've been going to Chestnut Motors for a few years now and their great reviews is well deserved. I use to get my car serviced at center automotive in Needham, and boy was that a stupid decision. I had an issue awhile back where I would hear grinding noises every time I braked. When I pointed it out to center automotive they told me there was no issues with my breaks. It wasn't until i brought my car to Chestnut Motors did they properly diagnose and fix the issue. Ever since then, the owner has earned my trust for being fair, honest, and professional. This is the only place I get my car serviced and I wouldn't bring my car anywhere else, because you don't know if other places are competent or lie to make a quick buck. Luckily and gratefully, chestnut motors do not do such things.
Trust them! Really good place. Paul is the best. Have a good experience with them
Always a pleasure, completely trust in these people
Paul has been servicing several cars of mine and my daughters for several years in Chestnut Hill and Needham. His entire team are incredibly professional and customer oriented, while providing outstanding service at a reasonable price. After he diagnoses the problems, Paul informs us of the costs as well as his recommendation on how to proceed in a cost effective manner, including seeking recycled parts when such strategy makes sense. From routine service, state inspections, flat tires, to challenging repairs, we continue to experience the kind of service that keeps us turning to Chestnut Motors for all of our automotive service needs. I cannot explain why anyone would issue a negative review of this excellent and convenient business.
Paul and Carol Stein and “Gus” have been taking care of my beloved Subaru since I moved here in 2011. I have complete confidence in their knowledge, ability, and hinesty. When my transmission acted funny before a 14 day trip abroad, they stored and fixed the car for me so no worries! Thanks so much Chestnut Motors.
Paul Stein and his staff at Chestnut Motors are simply the best, most reliable and trustworthy independent auto mechanics that I have ever encountered in my 40 years living in the Boston area. They have taken care of various models, ages and types of cars for my family for almost a decade, performing scheduled maintenance and major technical repairs with great professionalism and efficiency. I trust Paul to do the best job possible at a fair price and to stand behind his work. Chestnut Motors is a true gem of a business and deserves your consideration for your next auto repair.
Paul is a great guy and knows his cars. Plus his prices are the best around.
I Have been taking my truck here since I moved to this area. They do excellent quality work and do it at a very reasonable price.
The service is great and the prices are fair. The work is always done on time and honestly. No upselling, just straight-forward assessments. This is what keeps me coming back.
As a 22 year old female, it can be easy to have a mechanic or anyone who works on my car unfortunately take advantage of my very apparent lack of car knowledge. If you have car problems, Chestnut Motors is literally amazing. Paul is the bomb and is super nice. (I’ve gone there twice in the past 3 months and he’s been wicked helpful). Take it from someone who has way too many car problems, go there if you want your problem taken care of efficiently and considerately!
Paul seems honest, did a nice alignment
Clarity, honesty and quality of repairs are all hallmarks of the work done by this place. This place does great quality work and yes, they charge for when warranted. I have forgotten the number times they have contradicted Subaru and been right. This is a high quality shop.
I was looking for a place in the Newton area to service my aging Mercedes benz and I am so glad i found Chestnut Motors. My car runs like new and i feel confident in the work Paul and his crew have done. At first i was a little apprehensive about having my Mercedes serviced by anyone but a dealer, but now I don't think i'll have anyone else touch it. Thanks, Paul
Chestnut Motors and Paul, the owner is honest, reliable, easy to deal with and transparent. There are no surprise fixes or bills. They operate the shop in a very consultative manner. I've been a customer for a number of years after using a variety of other repair shops to "manage" my now 25 year old sports car. Not only have the kept the car running in the most cost-effective way, but they've uncovered and fixed the many mistakes of previous repair shops. I found Paul by stopping a car of similar vintage at a red light and asking him where he got his service. My only regret is not having found him sooner.
My car engine died and Chestnut Motors was the only motor shop that accommodated my every request. Paul kept me informed throughout the whole process. The work done on the car was excellent and everything that was done to the car was explained in great detail. The work was fairly priced. I will not only bring my car to them for every car need from now on, but will also recommend this shop to all of my friends
I trust Paul at Chestnut Motors to do any work on my Mercedes. The entire crew is calm, generous with their time, competent, and always reliable. Bravo to Paul and Carol for making their business seem like family. I would recommend Chestnut Motors to anyone with car problems, from changing a lightbulb to major work.
I can't say enough good things. Chestnut Motors is like a second family- They care about you not about your wallet. The work is quality and you can tell the difference between what they do and the pretenders. Invest into the right work, not shop for cost. Their prices are very fair and they will try to work around your schedule.
Paul is an honest, professional, hard working mechanic. He's always there when you need him and he and his crew do a great job! I have several older vehicles he maintains. I send anyone who asks me for a good mechanic his way.
I moved to Milford and still go to this Shop! Paul does a great job with my jeep every time. Very grateful to my friend for the referral.
