I've been working with Eric for 20+ years from my 1986 Mitsubishi
I brought when I moved to Montclair to my current 1998 Honda which
has been under Eric's "care" since I bought the car.
I recently brought my car to Eric for the first time and was totally
blown away by his professionalism and personal demeanor. He is a really
nice guy and went out of his way to explain in detail the issue with
my car. He gave me options and let me choose what was best. He was
honest and straight forward. He fixed my Audi which was leaking fluids
all in a matter of hours. I will absolutely be taking my car to him
from now on.

Hoffman's is the place to go if you need any kind of service done
on your vehicle. As others have mentioned I think its hard to find
a good, talented and most importantly honest mechanic. Eric is definitely
that kind of guy and will never do work unnecessarily. He's very thorough
in explaining any work that needs to be done and gives you a fair
assessment and options on whats immediately needing to be done and
what can safely wait if you are worried about expenses. I've had Eric
do service on a BMW, Acura and now will bring my Audi to him for sure.
Go to him once and you will see he will become your go to mechanic
that you will recommend over and over again!
Eric's a great guy and doesn't do the shaddy haggling thing that other
mechanics do. I've only seen him once but he seems really honest and
does great work. I'll be going back to him.Rick R. Bronx, NY
Hoffman's is my "go to" mechanic for any complex auto repair
needs. Eric provides accurate and timely service, obtains approval
for costs before starting work, and delivers his work on time. When
I lived in the area, other mechanics referred me to Hoffman when the
job was to complex. Now, I drive 40 miles to get to him, just a great
mechanic, highly recommend.

Eric; the owner is hands on. He does an amazing job and is always
accommodating regarding my schedule. I had a Mercedes and now a BMW
which I've been taking to him for years. Although, I use to take my
vehicles to the dealership to be serviced and was fairly happy with
the work that was completed; I wasn't happy with the prices I was
paying. I found that his work is as good if not superior to that of
the dealership, at about half the cost. He always lets me know if
any additional work needs to be completed, but never does anything
without my consent first. I don't feel like he's trying to push his
services on me as I did in the past when having my car serviced at
the dealership. I've recommended numerous friends with foreign automobiles
and all have been just as happy as I have been, with his service.
Richard C. Lyndhurst, NJ
It's always a concern when taking a car in to be repaired that there's
going to be something else wrong you didn't notice or what seems like
a small thing is actually something major. On top of that you have
to worry if you are going to find someone that will tell you honestly
what's wrong and not charge you $500 for replacing a light bulb. I've
never had that worry with Eric, the work I've had done on my car has
always been professional and I've had no complaints. If there have
been other things wrong I know it's not because he want's to get some
more money out of me. I've made personal recommendations to others
to go there when needed and I'll go out of my way to get him to work
on my car because the piece of mind it worth it. Dealerships may be
good but they certainly don't care as much about their work.
Per L. Montclair, NJ
Expert. Fair. Friendly. Eric, the owner truly cares about the safety
and performance of my car. Plus, you can drop the car off, and walk
to the train station.
Ben S. Highland Park, NJ
Great service and extremely knowledgeable owner. Excellent place to
bring your European car (Saab especially) after the warranty runs
out. Drove over 20 miles to bring my car to Hoffman's and would return
Eric's been my mechanic since 1990's when I had an Electrical issue
that another garage could not fix & they recommended Hoffman's,
which fixed the issue.

Eric is an outstanding mechanic and business owner. He says what he
is going to do and he follows through, promptly, efficiently, and
at a fair and reasonable price. He greets you by name and will take
the time to address your concerns and explain in clear language what
is going on with your car. He inspires confidence and loyalty and
is a pleasure to work with. Top drawer, without question.

Eric was thorough and patient in diagnosing
a chronic engine problem, he communicated clearly and openly about
how the repairs he recommended were likely to correct the problem,
and he completed the work on time and on budget. He was "spot

Friendly, knowledgeable, courteous, reasonable.
Where my mechanic failed to even attempt to look at an issue, Eric
had no qualms about taking a look (and even taking time to scrape
a melted plastic bag off my engine!). Definitely found my new go-to

work on our cars all that much easier

Hoffman's Foreign Auto is a clean organized
shop. The owner takes so much care in scheduling your car in to make
for the quickest service. I am usually in and out with my car very
quickly. They communicate the issues very clearly and lay out for
you the process of coming back if there is warranty work involved.
I am nothing but happy with the shops performance.

very fast. Will be using for all my future maintenance and repairs.
on 4/3/2014 for an auto service
Everything I read on Saab net about Hoffman's Auto was true. Hoffman's
Auto has strong knowledge of SAAB cars. I have taken my SAAB twice
because other mechanics could not figured out what the problem was,
but Hoffman Auto fixed both times quickly and at a fair price. It
was worth driving extra miles to get there.
on 3/28/2014 for an auto repair of their Saab
Efficient, professional, and friendly
In my opinion Hoffman's Auto Repair is the
most professional auto repair shop in the Montclair, NJ area! Eric
the owner never makes you feel rushed, always giving his total attention
to your concerns. The next time your car needs repair, got to Hoffman's.
You will never regret it, trust me. They are that good!
