Turbo Tim’s has great customer service. The folks working in the shop are friendly, experienced and have a vast... knowledge about automobiles of all kinds. This last time I brought my car in, there were some pretty big issues, and it took far longer to fix them than expected, but Turbo Tim’s kept me in the loop. If I had a question, they never failed to respond back. They gave me a loaner car the last week since It was rainy, and they followed up with me after the repair to make sure everything was fixed. I would recommend Turbo Tim’s to anyone who needs auto repair or maintenance.read more

Turbo Tim's is one of the best experiences I have ever had with a Automotive shop in my 25 years of driving and car... maintenance. The estimates that you receive via online are very easy to understand and allow you to choose and customize your repairs on a detailed itimized list. They are accommodating with any questions or concerns you may have. I've always felt like a valued customer since my very first visit.Also they love cats and have many shop cats who will guard your vehicle personally.Mark F-Rread more

Well. This place is neat. Even though the repairs were more complex than I had hoped, the price was still fair and the... work was done in a timely manner. Staff is professional and helpful... and I desperately needed to get my vehicle fixed BUT the chickens and kitties def. stole the show.read more

Turbo Tim's is the best. I found them while price shopping a big repair and of course I had seen the bumper stickers.... Now they are the only place I will take my car. Good prices, good techs who communicate well. I love their online inspection and estimate app.read more

Everyone at Turbo Tim’s is incredibly kind, helpful, and knowledgeable (including the cats- they are good cats!). My... car needed several services: they were fast and professional with all the fixes, and kept me informed via text as my car was being worked on. I appreciate the easy system they use where I could approve or deny their recommendations in where my car could use work. When a part came in a few days after the initial visit I needed to go back in, and they were able to install it quickly! I am so happy to have found a mechanic location close to home, and will absolutely continue returning. Highly, highly recommend.read more

I absolutely will NEVER go anywhere but Turbo Tim’s to fix my car. Amazing customer service. They always keep me posted... about what’s going on with my car. They are upfront and tell you the price before they start working on your car. No surprises in price. I brought my car in for a coolant issue and my key was broke as well. They went the extra mile to help me fix my key! Overall amazing experiences!read more

Perfect place in the neighborhood to take your vehicle. The team there is so friendly and accommodating. They work... hard to get your car working for you and out the door. Clayton is awesome! He took the time to explain my vehicle issues with me so that I understood. I have definitely found my permanent car shop. Thank you Turbo Tim’s!!read more

This is the only place I take my car and has been for almost 7 years. All of the staff are friendly and easy to work... with, and the pricing is reasonable with transparent billing. They find a good balance of not pushing for excessive or unnecessary service, while also checking for and finding things that should be attended to and providing good guidance. They also do a good job of making things right in the rare event that any mistakes are made. Overall a very reliable shop, though they can get a little busy so you usually need to make an appointment a week or two out.read more

I brought my car in to get the a/c checked because it was blowing hot air. First, the positives: very friendly staff... and I felt welcomed. They have an efficient way of communicating what they recommend and a way to accept or decline each recommendation through text. They're upfront about costs and didn’t try to convince me to do anything. What I didn't appreciate was the carelessness and lack of regard for my car, notably a trinket I had on my dashboard. It's not anything that was worth a ton of money, but it had sentimental value, which is more disappointing in my opinion. One of the technicians must've been rumbling around in there -- why they even needed to be near the dashboard, I'm not sure -- but when I got into the car, my trinket was on the floor and was broken. When I sent them this feedback via text, I received no response. Additionally they said they'd charge nearly $100 to INSTALL 2 air filters (which I had already bought), which is completely outrageous. I called up the shop that changes my oil and they said they'd do it for free. I won't be going back to Turbo Tim's unfortunately.read more

Tim’s is always great. Very transparent and honest. You always know exactly why, how and what work needs done, with... pics and video! And being able to easily select and approve what work you want done makes you feel more involved and in control rather than feeling condescended to like other garages. They’re truly a great neighborhood spot. Be sure to greet the shop cat walking around.read more

Turbo Tim’s has been so helpful for me over the years. When I was on a budget trying to squeeze another year or two out... of a rusty sedan with 200k+ miles, they were very understanding and helped me keep it running safely for the least amount of money. No hard sell for things I couldn’t afford at the time. Now that I have a newer vehicle, the dealership was pushing lots of ‘recommended’ maintenance at a high price based on mileage. Tim’s crew did an inspection and told me which things were actually needed now based on the condition of my car. I also saved a few hundred dollars on the work I did have done, compared to the dealership service quote.Their communication has always been great, and now they have an online system for estimates and accepting/authorizing work - I was able to say yes or no to each thing individually and see the cost breakdown on my phone before I approved it. It was great to have that in writing and convenient to do online instead of by phone call. Overall great experience.read more

They were able to change the oil in my old, rusty, overtightened 2000 Saturn L-series sedan when both my partner and... the local Valvoline could not. My partner also often takes his truck there, and they always do a great job! Turbo Tims also lets you bring your dog inside while you pay & have many adorable cats around plus a well kept salt water aquarium. They also have great bumper stickers!read more

Turbo Tim's is the BEST place you can take your vehicle to in the Twin Cities. Everyone who works there is extremely... knowledgeable and friendly and makes you feel right at home. Their prices are fair and they always do such a fantastic job on my car. Every visit I have walked away feeling very happy with the work they do. The cats are also a HUGE bonus. Give them extra treats for great customer service.read more

Great service! Oil change was quick and priced well. Showed me my brakes were worn, so I had that done as well, also... happy with that service. They recommended some work to be done later, but didn't push me since it wasn't urgent.Forrest and Taylor were very professional, and the "greeter" Dean was very friendly.Thanks Turbo Tim!read more

Never been here before but drove by several times. Had a tire go low this morning and made a phone call to Turbo... Tim’s. It’s nice to get a helpful and welcoming response to your call. I was able to drop off vehicle and a quick turnaround on a repair at a reasonable price. Recently bought a house in this NE area and finding a mechanic place been on my list. Think I found the one. Thanks from a new customer.read more

I love Turbo Tim’s so much! They’re always so nice and honest (and have cats!) I took my car in to get the hood latched... fixed and Nick and Ames took a few minutes out of their day to fix it and were finished in a few minutes and I was safely on my way! Always great service and employees. My favorite mechanic in Minneapolis and an essential Northeast business!read more

I've had a lot of work done at Turbo Tim's. They have always been good communicators to let me know what they find and... my options. I think they have always been fair on pricing and honest. I haven't had a single negative interaction with any of their employees over the 6 years I've been going there. I would strongly recommend them to anyone.read more

I was very impressed. Being new to the city I wanted someone I could trust over the long haul. My son recommended Turbo... Tim’s and I wasn’t disappointed. It was new to me to do everything through text, but it was so easy. Communication and payment was great. I really liked the summary points to let me know what to keep an eye on. Definitely will keep going there for oil change and repair work.read more

They did an online estimate and provided pictures of every issue described - coolest thing ever. Brought car here... because an estimate from a different shop was a little weird and glad I did. Did great work and price was competitive. Ridiculously fast turnaround on some minor suspension work on my Honda... not the hardest job ever but seriously it was freaky fast.read more
