Our Customers' Reviews

This was my first time talking my car there.i dropped off my car off for breaks . I dropped it off at 7am I had a call within 40 mins telling me what service I needed. My car was done much faster than I thought ...I have NEVER written a review for any company I would recommend Sovels They were very professional. I WOULD GO BACK

— Yvonne B., Westland, MI

If there were 6 stars I'd give them. Don't take me for what I'm saying go check it out yourselves. Honestly is very rare these days and that's what you'll find there.

— Marian P., Novi, MI

Sovels service and care is unrivaled! I highly recommend this super clean, very efficient, and fair company! Thanks Everyone!!!!

— Peter S., Northville, MI

Very happy with the service and labor cost for an a/c compressor replacement. Brian was great to work with. I always do my own repairs so I was a bit nervous having someone work on my vehicle. Everything looks good under the hood and the system is working great. I will use them again!

— Robert F., Novi, MI

I am very nervous when it comes to car mechanics as I dont know anything about cars; I dont know when Im getting ripped off. That being said, I will never go anywhere else again after my experience at Sovels. They went above and beyond, specifically Bernie, and there are no words to describe what it means to see that kind of service these days. I had recently had all my calipers replaced somewhere else and my car started leaking brake fluid on the front right. I brought it into Sovels and they quoted me what I thought was a super fair price. When I went to pick it up Bernie told me that the caliper had been installed incorrectly so he fixed it and then decided check all the others to see if they were installed wrong too. He fixed all of them! Thankfully the other 3 hadnt broken yet but still, he could have just done the one he quoted me on and then cashed in when the other 3 ultimately failed but he saved me a world of stress. THANK YOU!!!

— Blake M., Novi, MI

I give these guys six stars...For the last 3 years I've been going to them for service, I have nothing but good to say. Knowledgeable, honest, and reliable service. Highly recommended.

It was so refreshing to find an honest mechanic. I have been using them for the past 3 years and will drive from Berkely to use them, Both of my sons use them as well.

— Brian H., Berkley, MI

Called for an estimate after I was given a quote from a local dealer that just didn't seem right to me. Sovel would not even quote the work that the dealer said I needed because Sovel believed it was bogus. I appreciate the honesty! I'll be bringing my car to Sovel from now on.

We were on vacation and had a wheel bearing problem. In addition we had a miss when accelerating. Sovel's got us in quickly and solved both problems. Thanks!!

Good quality for fair price. Won't hesitate to go back again.

— Suyang D., Dong, MI

I took my husband's car in for an oil change. I made an appointment but called to see if they could get me in sooner.They were able to fit me in.The staff was very courteous and and completed the oil change and car check within 20 minutes. I didn't even get to read my novel. I would highly recommend Sovel's Auto Service.

— Lynn H., Novi, MI

Sovels was a recommendation of a friend. I have used Sovels twice and found their service level very good. The status updates were frequent. And the best part, I find them to be competitively priced against the dealer.

— Ken H., Northville , MI

My family and friends have been taking our cars to Sovels for over 20 years now and couldn't be happier. They will go out of their way to explain what issues you might have, and advise you as to the safest and most cost efficient solution. Time and again I have been impressed with the entire crew there and would never think of going anywhere else unless they advise it. We are really lucky to have the quality of service here in Novi that Sovels provides, and I would recommend them to anyone as your go to repair shop!

— Dave B., Novi, MI

kraig,brian,kevin,kim,&bernie are the most caring & capable mechanics you can go to. They do it right the 1st time.

Very loyal customer since 1970. Make an appointment you will be glad you did. Very friendly, very good service.

— Ron S., Northville, MI

After a friends recommendation, we tried Sovels. Now, we drive all the way from Rochester when we have a repair need. They tell you exactly what is necessary upfront and how much it will cost and it is generally a lot less than anyone else.

— Mark R., Rochester, MI

Best garage in Novi. Honest and reliable. Fast service done right. They only tell you what you really need. Trust them competely. My dad and Uncle love them too.

— Melissa A., Novi, MI

My family has had cars serviced by the Sovel famly since they moved out to Novi years ago. The entire family and their employees are friendly, trustworthy, honorable, perform needed maintenance items in a timely manner, keep the customer informed if there are other issues they find during the maintenance or repairs which may need to be addressed. I have been out of state and had to have emergency repairs to the car and ended up at a dealership. I was told the dealership recommended that they repair "something else" while the car was there which would have been quite costly. I decided to wait as the repair did not seem urgent. When I returned from the trip, I took the car to Sovel's and they reassured me that the additional work was unnecessary. I trust them implicitly with being honest. Their work is excellent and I know once the car is returned to me I can drive it feeling very safe that the repairs were done well. Novi is very lucky to have a gem like Sovel's serving the community.

— Gayle R., Novi, MI

With 10 cars in our family, we were so lucky to find such a great auto repair place to service our vehicles! Sovels is the only place I would EVER take one of our vehicles. We have been enjoying their professionalism for many years. They are hard working, honest, capable, and work quickly to get us back on the road! If they can't fix it, they tell you straight out and even recommend a place that can do the work. I have never had a bad experience...all my kids feel the same way. If there is a car problem, Sovels is the first place we call. Thank you for being there for my family!

— Tom S., South Lyon, MI

Been going to Sovels for as long as I can remember,probably 20 years or more. Would not go any where else for auto repairs. If it is not broke they do not fix it and charge a fair price.

I recently had work done by Sovels and would HIGHLY recommend them. They were honest about what work needed to be done; they were efficient and got the work done in a timely manner. It's great to have a neighborhood service center that is trustworthy and does GREAT work! Thank you!

The Sovels have provided service on all my cars over the last 20 years. They are honest, sound technicians and I would be glad to recommend them to anyone.

It's been a very long time since Kim worked on my car, when they were still "7-Mile & Braile Service" but I just wanted to say "hello" and that I'm glad to learn one of the greatest service facilities in the Detroit area is still thriving! Signed: The Paperboy, aka, Randy Forbes

My car was making a horrible metallic noise so I stopped in just before I went in to work. By 11am, they had replaced my rear brakes and my car was quiet again. Great job with no hassle.

— Dr. Nick D., Novi, MI

My wife's vehicle was making a loud clunking sound, and we noticed something in the suspension had come apart. Who esle is there to go to for an honest, quick repair job. A couple hours later and $50 and we were on our way. I'll be back!!!

I have been a customer for year and appreciate the honesty and professionalism . I have saved alot with you guys. Thanks

— Tom H., Wixom, MI

Sovel's is the best. My entire family has been bringing our cars in for service since they opened. They are honest, affordable, and fast, and are always willing to take the time to explain the problem, and let you know your options. I recommend them to anyone I know in the area who needs reliable and trustworthy auto repair.

— Joanne T., Novi, MI

Sovel's has taken care of my cars for many years and what I appreciate most is that they take the time to diagnose and talk with you about what needs to be done to your car and don't push or suggest services that other service facilities upsell with customers. Sovel's knows how great customer service relationships work and excel with both honesty and integrity.

— Linda B., Farmington Hills, MI

Great service from dependable folks, very trustworthy. Have always gotten great service and great advice about what and when to repair- sometimes they have suggested a vehicle not be repaired- it was appreciated.

— Timothy V., Farmington hills, MI

Sovel's has saved me hundreds of dollars by their thorough, honest, and FREE evaluation of my car. I couldn't be more impressed with their service and integrity. Totally trustworthy! I'll continue recommending them to everyone I know. Thank you Sovel's Team - keep up the great work!!!
