OUTSTANDING SERVICE The battery light came on and the power steering went on our VW van when my wife was driving it. She called me in a panic and since we just moved to Wheaton, we did not know of any good repair shops yet. I searched and found GF Auto Repair and based on the testimonials, selected them. I talked with Yamane, the owner, and explained the situation. We surmised that the serpentine belt had broken. My wife was about 3 miles from his shop and attempted to drive there but the van ran out of juice about 1/4 mile from the shop. Yamane drove over to her, jumped the van and drove it back to their shop. This was now after their closing time. The next morning they found that the AC & Power steering pump mounting bracket had broken causing the belt to fail. VW told them the $410 part is not stocked in the US and had to be shipped from Germany taking 10 days. Yamane called me and got the broken part welded and had us on our way by 2pm and applied their internet discount without me even asking! We will take our cars to GF Automotive from now on. They treat their customers like family, do excellent work at a very reasonable cost. Thanks Yamane! Joe L.

For more than 10 years GF Auto has served our family with honesty and integrity courteously. Yemane, the owner, cared for my wife’s BMW 318i until it was time to get rid of it. Now he cares for her VW Jetta in the same way as well my own car.
We feel comfortable about taking our cars to GF Auto, because they provide trusted service and expert advice. Furthermore, Yemane is one who frequently puts himself in his customers’ shoes and looks out for the most suitable deal for them. I admire his workmanship, great customer care and attention to detail.

OH WHAT A BLESSING!!!
Hello Yemane, we can’t thank you enough for the services you have provided for both our vehicles. The fact that you honor extended warranties, replace parts with NEW ones, honest, friendly, and blessed — is more than enough reasons to continue our business with you. We share our testimony as often as we can. You’re the best. Just want to thank you again publicly!!

Just wanted to say thank you for all of the great work you’ve done on my car over the past couple of years. Though it’s 16 years old, you have it running like new. You are the most knowledgable mechanic I’ve ever dealt with and your prices are more than fair.

Finally An Honest Mechanic
Thank God! I finally have an honest, intelligent, professional mechanic who knows about cars. Being a lady, with no knowledge of cars, left me vulnerable to dishonest, money hungry repair shops. Before, everytime I had my car repaired, it cost me twice as much and something else would breakdown. Out of desperation, I asked my church for a referral to a good mechanic. Thank God for Yemane Ghdey! He has truly been a blessing to me and my family. He repairs my car perfectly, at a reasonable rate that I can afford. Best of all, my car now WORKS without any new breakdowns. I refer Yemane to all of my family and friends and they are happy with his honesty, integrity and rates. Thank you Yemane for fixing my auto and making my life easier.

GF Auto Repair is the only independant auto service establishment I would consider for all my vehicle service and repairs. Ever since I fist discovered this business about one and a half year ago I have taken almost a dozen vehicles there for myself, my family and friends. Everytime the work was conducted impeccably and on schedule. It is very diffuclt to find the honesty and straightforwardness of the management anywhere else.
