Pugh's Garage online reviews

You can rest assured Pughs will give you honest, reasonable, excellent service. No ridiculous sales pitch like some of the brand name service centers. I’m so glad I discovered them!

Love this car repair business. We’ve been with them since 1995, through 4 cars, all nursed into their old age with grace by Ed and his wonderful staff. They are good about letting me know what repairs are coming, so I can manage my budget. They also do high quality work. I love them.

Pugh’s was recommended to me by an ex-roommate. I have been taking my car to Pugh’s for the past three years or so for routine and emergency repairs and have only had good experiences. I am a young female with little knowledge of cars so I am always weary of being taken advantage of. After almost being ripped off by a mechanic in College Park it was a relief when I found out about Pugh’s level of professionalism. Ed is great, and JC as well (although I have not seen him around lately). I highly recommend Pugh’s!

I’ve only been in for oil changes, but the service has always been good and fast. They’ve also told me about problems with the car without trying to aggressively sell repairs. Will definitely be back.

The folks at Pugh’s Garage are very nice, helpful, courteous and professional. They often send out coupons to the people in the area, and are super close to the CP Metro, so I use them. I’ve had my oil changed there, and my fiancee has had some work done there on her car. For someone who really has no idea about car maintenance, these guys seem to know what they’re doing, and I trust their judgement on what needs to be repaired and what doesn’t. They also seem pretty active on social networks, so if you go here, check out their yelp deal, and I think they also have a foursquare discount.

Pugh’s garage makes the inconvenience of having your car repaired dare I say…pleasant! This is my second time taking my car to Pugh’s and Ed is always professional and willing to explain repairs and cost completely. At each visit I was notified before repairs were done and after they were completed as promised. They also offer shuttle services to area businesses if you work close by and need to leave your car for service during the day, as well as night time drop off. If you are looking for a fair and professional place for repairs – go to Pugh’s.

I think they tell you what you need to do to get your vehicle fixed. At first i thout they were trying to sell you thing that you dont need but leter realized every thing they say are accurate. this would be my goto place for my vehicle maintanance.

They started working on my car right after the moment I arrived although I was a bit late for the appointment. And I love the $50 for $75 deal a lot!! The price is fair. I recommend this store!

Pugh’s Garage has earned by business. Came by for an oil change and the manager provided excellent service and identified another critical issue. Yellow Pages and Yelp offers nice discount coupons on oil changes and other services. I will certainly bring my vehicles here for future services.

My Aunt Margaret has taken her cars to Pugh’s since 1989 and has always had excellent and trustworthy service. As she has aged, (80+), she is more and more reliant upon Ed and his courteous and knowledgeable mechanics to keep her “wheels” rolling!

In February we had the brake pads on our Honda Pilot replaced by Pepboys on 450 and we were extremely unhappy with their attitude. They were very unprofessional. So when the brakes started to screech again I looked up another mechanic. I found Pugh’s Garage online. I called on a Saturday morning and talked to Ed. From the first call I knew Pugh’s would be our new garage. He treated us with respect and had our car in and out the same day. Very pleasant to deal with.

I highly recommend Pugh’s for all your auto care needs. Reasonable rates and competent employees make for satisfied customers! I moved back to Gaithersburg from Hyattsville last year and still travel 45 min. to take my car here. Ed is incredibly knowledgeable and has terrific techs working for him. Honest, trustworthy, capable, and competent are how I describe Pugh’s Auto and the service I get from them. You won’t go wrong going here.

Ed is the consummate small businessman, dedicated to his customers. He and his staff go far above and beyond what passes for service at most garages, especially the dealers. They do excellent work at great prices and are close to the metro for easy drop off. What else could you want?


— Yelp Review

Awesome work as usual! Ed Holton (owner) and JC (mechanic) are terrific. They get the work done in a timely fashion and for significantly cheaper than businesses in Montgomery County. They’re located in College Park and I go all the way from Gaithersburg to get my car done by Ed and JC. I’ve referred people to them, and they’ve been pleased as well. Cannot rate highly enough!!!

Have used Pugh’s Garage for many repairs over the years, including a few we’ve needed immediately, and never been disappointed. They offer quality, personal, reasonably priced service.

Ed and Brandon are friendly and helpful. They explain a lot to me what is wrong with my car and how they can fix it. Not pushy at all unlike some of the dealer. Recently they spotted my leaking CV joint and prevented me from breaking it further.

I’ve been taking my car(s) to Pugh’s for a long time an appreciate their friendly service. It’s also walking distance to College Park metro station, which is super convenient for commuting.

I was a graduate student of University of Maryland, College Park and now I am working as a research staff here, Since I got my car, I did my first car inspection and annual car maintenance at Pugh’s garage. The owner is a honest man and provide service of good quality.

Ed and his crew are my long-time “garage guys.” They have kept my 2003 Mazda zipping right along, as they did its predecessor. They’re the best!

Did a great job fixing my car, and I appreciated that they followed up to contact me after to make sure everything was working fine.

I’ve been going to Pugh’s Garage since 2009 and have been extremely satisfied with both their quality of work, and their attempts to work within my budget throughout that time! I continue to visit them with everything from oil changes to replacement parts to checkups, and they’re always my first stop if I think there may be any issue with my car. Ed goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable and in good hands, and I have recommended Pugh’s Garage to multiple friends looking for a new mechanic!

We first were sent to Pugh’s Garage through a new friend at my husbands employer. We had a seal blow on our way home from Cheasapeake Bay area. They took care of us at a fair price and quickly! They are so curtious and helpful. Yesterday I went in for an oil change and a new employee had made the appointment in error , but they squeezed me in and it didn’t take very long at all. They checked the whole car and took me what they found and what needs fixing! Wonderful mechanics!!! Great place!

We have been bringing our cars to Pugh’s for years and we always feel confident in their work. We haven’t found anyone better in the area and have no reason to look. We are very grateful for Ed and his crew and their skill and honesty.

This was the second time bringing my Jeep in and both times Ed was super helpful and nice throughout. Originally only brought our Jeep here because of our warranty but I’ll continue to come here because of the great service!


— Google Review

They are quick, and I have never had to get something re-done. Also, the were far more affordable than other DC area garages, as they didn’t try to convince me that half the systems in my car were broken.

Ed is very knowledgeable and a trusted source of advice. I have heard similar comments from customers while waiting for my cars to be serviced in his shop.

Excellent and fast service from Ed and his team. They were great to deal with and helped locate a good used part with a warranty, which provides piece of mind. Highly recommend.

Ed Holton and his team have taken car of my cars since 1996. I sold my last car at 190,000 miles – the engine was in great shape! My current car is edging up above 100,000 miles, and with regular maintenance, it has served me well. The team is friendly and professional, and they accommodate last minute emergencies.

Consistently good work, tell it to you how it is and don’t try to oversell you. Have been later than promised with service times, but not a deal breaker. Also they always have a Valpak coupon you can print out for 10% off, which I always bring.

I’ve taken a lot of cars here over the years (Buicks, Volvo) and they always get it right the first time, and explain my options. Definitely trust them, and have referred others.


— Google Review

I have been taking my car (2001 Volvo) here for some time. Ed and Joe do a great job, have fair prices, and are very good to work with. I would recommend them to anyone. The garage is right across from the College Park Metro too, which is very convenient.

Excellent customer service, professional work and appreciated follow-up as well as reasonable prices

The first thing I noticed was the exceptional friendly customer relations and the professional procedures from All. They replaced my rear brake pads and checked the front ones and notify me that they didn't need replacing at this time......the cost was reasonable and I left with a sense of satisfaction and confidence

As usual top notch mechanical work

They were very very nice, Chris is awesome, I felt so comfortable leaving my car there and knowing he would fix everything that was wrong. He’s very professional and would recommend his services to anyone! Thank you again for taking care of my car issues! I’m a forever customer!


— Google Review

Brought my car in to have the AC fixed, they waived a few of the fees because the work was going to be pricey due to the extensive work needed. Chris is very professional and friendly which makes dealing with pricey repairs a bit easier than a rude person.
