You are the MAN! I can’t thank you enough for fixing my car. It has never run this good since I owned it for 4 years. It purrs like a kitten and no more hiccups either. It has never performed this good. I am jeopardizing my license constantly due to your work. I get that it wasn’t cheap, but I can’t begin to imagine what the bill would have been at the dealership! If they could have even done it. Your knowledge and persistence really saved my car, literally. Can’t say enough about the great service and communication along the way. Thanks again.

“I brought my Audi A6 in for burning smell. They diagnosed the problem as an oil leak and inspected the rest of the car for free. They found a loose ball joint in the front end and the rear brakes were worn but did not need replacing for a while. I appreciated the attention to detail. I called the Audi dealer for a price and found that Dufour Automotive was $400 less for the exact same repairs. They also provided me with a free loaner car.“

“I have a 2001 Audi S8. In dec of 2009 when I was approaching 100,000 miles, I called Dufour Automotive and asked Paul if he would look at my car from the \”front bumper to bumper\” . My understanding was that Paul had extensive, first hand experience with Audi\’s and is a certified Audi mechanic. I was so impressed on not only the thoroughness of the inspection but also the professionalism of paul and his entire staff.Paul recommended what he would do if the car were his and also what i could certainly wait to do if i so chose . My car now has 110,000 miles on it and is running like a new car. In fact this winter I drove iit to California and back and it was great to have total confidence in the vehicle. I worked for 30+ years at 3M in the Auto Aftermarket Division and consequently am quite familiar with the independent Automotive shops- both mechanical and collision shops. I must admit that Dufour Automotive is one of the most capable and professional of of the thousand of shops
I have been involved with. If your car needs any kind of mechanical attention, I would strongly recommend Dufour Automotive.“

“Recently we needed to have some service work done on our Mercedes SUV. Having grown tired of the high prices paid for service at a local Mercedes dealer, and being very disappointed with inferior products and installation methods from a local general mechanic, I decided to talk with Paul at Dufour Automotive about our service needs. My wife and I both worked with Paul, and we both had an exceptional experience with him and his group! Paul took the time to carefully analyze our vehicle, thoroughly explain the needs; and then he gave us options for completing the work within our budget and on our time-frame. Paul is clearly an expert in working on import vehicles and he showed sincere concern for both our vehicle and our satisfaction with it. As this was our first experience working with Dufour Automotive, we did get a quote from a Mercedes Dealer for the same repairs, and I can attest that Paul did save us a significant amount! Our family recommends Dufour Automotive for their expert ability, honest approach, and high level of service while providing value pricing!”

”I brought my 2004 VW Phaeton to Paul Dufour. I learned that Paul is a Porche Master Mechanic and he proved this to me by performing expert work including a tranny filter and flush as well as suspension work. I have arranged with Paul to have him do some more work on my car which has in excess of 170K miles. Paul’s confidence in his own abilities has convinced me that I can probably get another 100K miles out of my Phaeton. The clear difference with Paul and his crew is that you are going to get superior service and attention to detail without feeling like you had to take out a mortgage. They only do what’s needed. You can trust them to take very good care of both you and your car.“
