These folks did an absolutely fantastic job. They were very good about explaining exactly what the issues were that needed to be fixed, and how they were going to do so. Throughout the entire experience everyone was friendly, straightforward, and transparently honest. The price was extremely reasonable and costs were clearly delineated to labor and parts. They also got everything done within a very reasonable timeframe and had my vehicle back to me within the week, and even if it had been longer, the sheer quality of the work would be worth waiting for.
Overall my dealings with Euro Central were a very smooth and pleasant experience, and I would highly recommend them.
I’ve been taking my cars to Jarrad, the owner, for a couple of years now. He is incredibly knowledgeable, talented, and fair. He explains exactly what is wrong with your car, and then he explains what he is going to do to fix it. Euro Central is most definitely worth checking out, no matter what type of vehicle you own. The staff is friendly, the office is beautiful, and the work is of the best quality. I go there for all of my car-related needs and I am never disappointed.
I bought my Volvo XC90 from Euro Central. I have never considered owning a Volvo until talking with Jarrad. He made me comfortable with purchasing a brand of vehicle I would have never considered previously. The car has been amazing. I would buy from Euro Central again, and highly recommend going there if you are looking for a “new” used car. I have also previously had Euro Central do mechanic work on other cars I have owned. The prices are very reasonable for repairs and Jarrad always explains what needed to be repaired/replaced and why. There is not a better, more honest shop around.
I have a used Volvo and Jarrad Fox has been my mechanic for about 2 years. He is EXTREMELY knowledgeable in foriegn cars and has also worked on our Dodge truck and Harley Davidson motorcycle. Jarrad is very honest and affordable, he always makes me feel at ease with any repairs that he does. I had bought my used Volvo from another dealer and had numerous complicated and ongoing problems. Jarrad was able diagnosis all of the issues and repair them all at low cost. When I’ve called with any question or problem Tracey has always made me feel like I’m top priority. Euro Central comes highly recommended! Thank you for all that you have done to make my life easier!!!
I have an older Volvo – 2002 that I purchased last year and when I moved back to the area I was worried about finding a great spot to service it that wasn’t too pricey. I found Euro Central and made an appointment. The shop is super inviting and helpful – the owner, Jarrad who was the one doing the work on my car was very knowledgeable and was able to explain to me what that “weird noise” was and fixed it quickly. I loved that he explained it to me and I loved it even more when I left and that “weird noise” was no longer! If you have a foreign car be sure to check this place out – worth the drive for those that might live a ways away – they get to your car quick and you won’t find yourself sitting in the waiting room for the entire day (like I’ve experienced at other shops). Thank You Euro Central! My car will forever be serviced by you!
I am writing this as a somewhat mechanically knowledgeable car owner who was sick and tired of being ripped off by shops that put profit margins before customer service like other service centers. The aforementioned shops, in my opinion, are in the business of pushing through as many customers and short service jobs as possible to balance out the ridiculously high overhead it takes to run a shop like that. These are the kind of shops that will charge you a full hour of labor to install a Saab Direct Ignition Cassette (book-time), which takes literally 4 bolts on the top of the engine, 4 minutes, and an electrical connector. No, I’ve never paid to have such a service done, but I have seen some ridiculous service quotes that made me want to deflate the service manager’s tires on the way out.
Jarrad Fox of Euro Central in Geneva runs one of the few remaining shops in the area where I know I can count on receiving an unparalleled level of service at an affordable price. He’ll take care to make sure your vehicle is running in the best condition possible. He’s also very helpful in interacting with customers by explaining the background behind needed repairs, letting you come into the shop to see the car on the lift, and listening to any of your concerns and questions. I had him do some very nice custom work upgrading my turbocharger and intercooler and then tuning my 1999 Saab 9-3. He put an immense amount of time and effort into making my car run perfectly, while managing to keep the bill on an affordable level.
In the past 8 years since moving to Ithaca I’ve searched around a lot to find a trustworthy independent mechanic. I have been to nearly every “reputable” shop in the Ithaca/Geneva area, and I have a lot of respect for what Jarrad is trying to do, primarily because he respects his customers, and to be frank, the guy is a goddamn mechanical genius.
For all of your needs , be it your car , truck or motorcycle ….. This is the place to go ! The staff are all wonderful people and yet very professional. I’ve had such great service there. This is the kind of place that you just don’t find anymore, These guys are honest and take pride in what they do. Thank you for all you have done for me and my family, your an awesome asset to the community.
I live in Rochester, NY and looked everywhere for someone to repair my Porsche Cayenne S. Euro Central was recommended to me by a friend who spoke very highly of owner Jarrad Fox. Jarrad was able to diagnose my issue very quickly, and he worked with my warranty company to get the engine swapped asap. Finding a competent mechanic who you trust for European cars is very difficult. Jarrad’s work is top notch and I will continue to service my car at Euro Central. I highly recommend Euro Central if you are looking for the highest quality service for your European car. My sincere thanks to Jarrad for getting me back on the road with a now reliable vehicle.
I had been looking for a Volvo for more than a year….looking for the best deal for me and I found it right here in Geneva. I found my car at Euro Central they were great to deal with!
I am very pleased to write a review for this business and will certainly consider them when I need any regular maintenance and or repairs in the future…in fact I am in the market for a newer truck and may be doing business with them again.
Thank you to the staff of Euro Central!
I have tried several shops in the area and I can tell you without hesitation that these guys are TRUSTWORTHY and knowledgeable when it comes to servicing Porsches and BMW’s. These guys understand how to treat people and truly want to give the best service possible!
