  • I used to take my car to the dealership I bought it from for major repairs. I came into Russ's Garage for an old fashioned full service oil change because of their convenient key drop box. I start work early so this was really convenient. Now I won't go anywhere else! Your technicians changed my entire perception of auto service and maintenance and took the stress out of planning car repairs. Your guys are thorough, honest, and affordable! Thank you guys!

  • It's hard to find a reliable auto repair garage. I found that Russ's Garage really embraces the tradition started way back when they first opened in downtown Grand Rapids. The certified technicians listened to me and helped me achieve the goals I had for how I planned to use my car. One of my goals was to use it for a long time! My grandfather started using this garage back in the 1930's. It's where our family has always taken our cars.

  • I have never been overcharged at Russ's. I appreciate that your technicians always take the time to explain to me what my car needs and why they will fix it a certain way. I want to thank you for the professional, courteous and happy way you and your mechanics treat me and my family members who also come to your garage for service. Good customer service and honest service means a lot. The discount you gave my daughter who is in college at GVSU really helped a lot.
