PLEASE HEED WARNING.
In all honesty I don't think the guy is that much of a jerk. He is just a little harsh with his english. SERVICE on the other hand, now that's different! I bought all the parts for my rear drum brakes to be changed. Not only did he install them incorrectly, but when I opened them up to fix them myself HE KEPT PARTS! He kept the wheel cylinder and shoes on the passenger side and the self adjuster on both sides. I will never go there again and would recommend everyone find somewhere else! I can't express my disdain enough!
Excellent Service but not your average service shop.
I have had cars repaired at this shop many times. without any problems. The service is inexpensive and good. Don't even try to phone. He is usually busy working on cars and won't answer.
He doesn't like people looking over his shoulder while he works on your car. Leave him alone and he'll do his work well. If you are nice to him, he'll be nice to you.
You need an appointment, but it is well worth the wait to get one.
Rude, arrogant and Dangerous.
Rude and arrogant does not even begin to describe this wacko. He does not like people asking questions or even being there. Honestly, he does not like for people to see what he is doing. Really makes you wonder. He employs unlicensed helpers that he has perform duties and make repairs, someone should look into that. He uses the cheapest parts he can find and routinely installs used parts. Watch out!!! Ask around and you will find many people that have had bad experiences and alot of strange stories.
Arpad's is terrible! Save time and money and go somewhere else.
Arpad auto is the best place.
Arpad is good man with lots of knowledge and clear cut idea. Although he is moody quite a few time, but the overall service is good and the is price is best in lansing area.
Affordable and effcient :).
Arpad's Auto service is a very inexpensive place for car repairs. I paid 50% lower than any outside chain repair shops. Owner is knowledgeable and honest. Highly recommended :)
