Hands held high from convertible

They did a good job for us for a fair price with zero notice right before a holiday weekend. We were from out of town and in a jam. Highly recommend.

Helped me quickly and inexpensively. I was from out of town, my car had a flat and I needed to get home the same day. They fixed it and even dropped me off at an appointment so I didn't miss it while I was waiting for the car. Ryan was outstanding!

My boyfriend & I were visiting in Pittsburgh and ended up with a flat tire on our way out of town. It ended up being a bigger problem with the rim & the guys helped us despite being slammed. They called around for over half an hour trying to find the part and for a reasonable price. (Saved us about $400) It extended our trip a day, but they helped when no one else would & within a reasonable time & price to help us get back on the road. They went above and beyond to help us. 10 out of 10 would recommend thanks guys!

I brought in my Dad's old car, now formally named "Granddad's Ride" by the family. This car is a 1998 Saturn and I love it. I love it enough that I gave my son my new 2015 Subaru to take off to grad school. My sisters understand how I feel, other family members, well, less so... That said, I brought it up from Missouri last week and after looking at reviews on the web and trying to ascertain where I could best have an old car that is no longer being made taken care of, I called Baum. They quickly got back to me and set up an appointment for the inspection. Before the appointment was made, I was made aware that on an old car from a state with easier weather, there may be problems that could be costly. Ryan told me that they would not do anything without talking to me. He promptly called me as promised and we discussed how far to go looking at a problem with the horn. He was very supportive as I got stressed and told him not to bother with the windshield wipers until we found out if the horn was a big thing. Given the age of the vehicle, my husband did not want me putting money into it. It was difficult to argue with that. It all turned out well. The repairs were fairly minor and not costly. I was treated with honestly and courtesy by all of the staff at the shop as I brought the car in and out dealing with an emission problem that required a "grandfather clause" in order to pass the inspection. I don't know if the team at Baum felt my Dad's spirit, they sure seemed to. By the time we said goodbye I knew I had found the only place in Pittsburgh where Granddad's Ride will want to go when he needs autodoctoring. Granddad's Ride will not see the inside of another shop in Pittsburgh. We toasted our new relationship over bagels. Please bring your car to Baum. They will love your car. They will do excellent work as other reviews support. They will keep you informed before they do additional work and they will smile and be wonderful and friendly. Thank you all for making Granddad's Ride feel important and valued!!!! Hugs to all of my new friends at Baum. Oh, and thanks for asking if I had the AAA so I could get the discount. I would not have thought to of that as I was just so overwhelmed that my car was going to be drivable.

My 2017 Discovery developed a steering problem 2 days before a planned cross country road trip. Worried about an expensive power steering failure, I called my Land Rover dealer, but they couldn't look at my car before my scheduled departure. I had it brought to Baum Blvd Automotive, where they had previously changed my brake pads at a very reasonable price.

They took my car right away, and Ryan and his team diagnosed the problem: an upper steering shaft and steering column failure (luckily, NOT a power steering system problem). The ordered part was delivered late by the dealer and didn't arrive until about 2:00. Ryan and his team stayed after hours to complete the repair. I got my car back at 6:00pm and headed out to California that night with the car driving perfectly. They even found a screw in the L rear tire that they sealed.

Baum Boulevard Automotive came through during a very stressful time for me, and they were courteous, very helpful, and made sure I could drive out safely on a long trip, all at a very reasonable price! Can't recommend them highly enough. Bring your cars for any service.

I am so happy I found this place and have recommended it to all of my friends. I have in the past been taken advantage of before and talked down to from other places for being a girl. They are so friendly and kind and never once did I feel like they are dishonest . I wont go anywhere else now.

I've had nothing but good experiences with Baum Boulevard Automotive. I recently moved to Pittsburgh from another state, and so I was anxious to find a new mechanic / auto shop to work on my car.

Baum Boulevard was able to quickly address some of the pressing repairs for my (relatively) old car, and recommended some additional future repairs considering the age and mileage on the car. I didn't feel as though they were pressuring me to make unnecessary repairs, and I felt their prices were fair (according to my google searches). Plus a AAA discount helped to take the edge off the costs.

I've now returned for multiple repairs, and my experiences have still been positive. They even offered to drive me back to work so I wouldn't have to take a ride-share service after dropping my car off. I'm happy with my interactions with staff and will continue to go to Baum Boulevard Automotive for my car needs.

I recently got my car inspected here and I must commend their attention to detail. I am registered in a county where an emissions test is not required, but I called multiple other places and they stated that this was incorrect and I would need one, so I did not mention it when I brought my car into this location. I dropped my car off for the day and they did the inspection, we spoke about what repairs were needed for it to pass (which were minor and inexpensive for a 11 year old car), and they made the repairs with no issue. They also noted that I was not registered in a county where an emissions test was required, so I did not have one conducted.

This location is very clean and well maintained. They have lots of complimentary drinks (coffee, sparkling water, etc,.) and a comfy sitting area. The service was very professional. I spoke to Chuck(the owner) on the phone to schedule the appointment, he was very kind and explanatory when it came to the repairs.

The only criticism I have was the notification system. I called in the afternoon to see if the inspection had taken place, and that's when we discussed repairs. At the end of the call, I asked if I would receive a call notifying when the repairs were done and the car was ready to be picked up, and I was told I would receive a call. About fifteen minutes to close, I called to see if everything was done, and they informed me that it was but that they would be closing soon. I explained that it would take me a little longer than that to get there, but they were very understanding and stayed late for me to pick up the car. So, be sure to call and follow-up!

Very pleased with their efforts to diagnose a quite unique issue. Excellent customer service, sound advice and fair pricing!

I am not for writing reviews but this shop is wonderful. My car suddenly broke down the other day and AAA was able to tow my car there and they were able to fix my car the very next day (it was a big fix too!) Everyone I spoke to over the phone was extremely helpful and polite and took the time to call me and explain what was wrong with my car. For someone who knows nothings about cars, I appreciate the explanation as well as not taking advantage of a young girl just trying to get her car repaired! I definitely recommend coming here. Awesome job and I will be back for further car repairs and inspections!


— Yelp User Review

I got my tires rotated and realigned and I also got an oil change. They filled up my wiper fluid and added air to my tires for free!

The service was great. They offer both AAA and student discounts, and will give you the greater discount. They charged me exactly what they had quoted me. Everyone was very kind and they text when the car is ready, which is nice when you can't always answer the phone during the day.

I love these guys. Always friendly and bend over backwards for service. If you have an electric car, they have a free plug. They also feel very comfortable working on EVs. Hometown boys that I hope you'll support.

I was in Pittsburgh from out of town and developed a scary shimmy. AAA recommended this mechanic and I was in pretty desperate shape to get my car fixed on a Friday. They got me in and found a pretty cheap fix. They totally could have convinced me it was a much bigger problem, but got me in and out and were awesome about it.

Car went in for some work and shop was recommended by AAA. I was a little concerned due to some of the reviews but they appear to be outdated. My car went it on Monday around 4p and was back to me by Wednesday around 4p which was a short time considering all they had to do. On Tuesday, I received a call from Brett which was extremely detailed and explained the ins and outs of what was wrong and what needed to be done to fix it. Brett made a point to not "mansplain" (he even said "let me know if I'm mansplaining which made me laugh). I felt comfortable asking clarifying questions and got the answers I needed. Brett explained that my car could use a couple new tires too but did not pressure me into purchasing them and even suggested that I shop around for a better price. Overall, I'm 100% satisfied with the work they did and the amazing customer service. I will be returning and I will recommend them to friends in need.

Really pleased with my experiences here! Went in for an annual inspection & they discovered a couple of issues (which I suspected I may be facing, so it wasn't totally out of the blue). They quoted a reasonable price (some quick online research confirmed their quote was right in the middle of the country-wide average) and they got to work that day. Faced some unexpected issues in the repair process (a defective part was sent, a technician called in sick) which meant they had my car for a week. I don't drive a lot so it wasn't a huge issue for me, but they gave me their shop car to use while they worked on mine and they called me daily to provide updates. They also heavily discounted the cost of the repair due to the unexpected setbacks.

In a nutshell: Great experience. Some (admittedly avoidable) issues came up but they were upfront, honest, and gracious about it. Totally trust this team & will definitely return.

They aren't the most inexpensive, but they are the most effective. We've been taking our Volvo s40 there for the past six months.

They will do whatever it takes to find the source of the problem, which is the type of persistence our car needed.

The customer service is the most helpful customer service I have ever experienced. I was always given a thorough explanation of everything they were going to do.

If you want your car better when you get it back than when you dropped it off, take it to Baum Blvd. Automotive.


— Yelp User Review

I can't speak highly enough of the service here. Everyone has been extremely friendly and accommodating, and as a complete automotive novice they made me feel like I understood what work was being done and what would be needed in the future. It's been very easy to get my car looked at whenever I need to, and their lobby is comfortable and has free coffee! It's nice to have a convenient shop I trust to look after my car, and their professionalism and friendliness can't be matched.

Dropped the car off after driving it back from NJ Saturday evening to fix the accelerator and get an inspection when the mechanic found a leaky valve. A part had to be ordered and the guys kept my baby parked inside until it was ready. Quick and reasonably priced.

Just went to Baum automotive to have they ROAD FORCE BALANCE, my tires. This is special way to balance tires that is more accurate than normal spin balancing, they are one of the few shops in the city that has this device. Explain my wheel shake experienced over 70mph, and it's gone! performed the work in under an hour. This is a great shop in the city. They can be a bit pricier to due their good reputation, but worth it. Been going to Baum since 2009.

Took my car here for an inspection and a load of repairs that I knew were coming (brakes, tires, oil change). I had the tires ordered on TireRack.com (like it suggests on their website) and they were delivered in a day, installed for a reasonable price. Not dirt cheap, but reasonable and better than Firestone or NTB. Unfortunately for my bank account, there were a few pricey additional items needed (catalytic converter, engine mount). Unlike everyone else on here with add-ons, I don't think they were trying to fleece me. The check engine light had been going on and off for some time, which was related to a hole found in the exhaust. With Hyundai Elantras, the exhaust flex pipe is part of the cat, so it was necessary to replace. I double checked what the guys had told me with my own research and found no reason to distrust them. The car had been making some general "rough" noises, which I reasoned to be the cracked engine mount.

I also explained my financial situation (poor) and they tried everything they could to help, such as make sure the O2 sensor was no longer malfunctioning after replacing the cat, instead of just replacing it as well. And I'm pretty sure they threw in a pair of new windshield wipers. :-) After the fact, I looked at the parts and labor costs, and found that they were very reasonable, if not better than other places I have been in the past. The car now rides like a dream: quiet, no rumbles, squeaks or other "rough" noises as I mentioned before. Good job Baum Blvd Auto!

On a side note, the lobby is pretty awesome, which some of the owner's collection of antique radios, a baseball pinball machine and cool signs.

My dealership quoted me $2000 to repair an electrical problem. The guys at Baum fixed the issue for $60. Honest, quick and dependable. That's what I look for in a mechanic.

These guys serviced my cars when I lived in Pittsburgh from 2004-2007. My cars included two BMWs and a Jeep Cherokee. These guys are professional, courteous and responsible for the work they do. I particularly enjoyed the work they did on my BMWs. Since the BMW shop is just down the street from them, the guys at Baum were always able to get me serviced by the next day as compared to the BMW people, which usually required a week. Their work is excellent. I will miss them.

You gentlemen are the best! Thank you for rescuing me last week from my flat tire in the West Penn Parking garage. Andy was so gracious to drop what he was otherwise supposed to be doing in order to dodge over to the garage, portable air tank in tow. Ryan was amazing about keeping me informed as to the repair progress, car pick up, and schooling on tire replacement procedures. For anyone with a car who may be reading this review, do yourself a favor and take your sweet ride to Baum Boulevard Automotive. Best referral my dear friend Jim ever gave me!

Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Value

Took my car in at noon for a check engine light that came on. Ryan said he would have someone look at it to see what was going on. They would try to have an answer by the end of the day.

To my surprise they did contact me by the end of the day with what was wrong with my car. It was to my surprise because NO OTHER SHOP in the area has EVER gotten back to me that quickly.

The person who would be working on my car let me know the reason for the check engine light, and fully explained to me what all of it meant without degrading me because I'm a woman. A very nice change in the Pittsburgh area. He said they would be able to get the part the next day and should have it fixed by the end of that day, baring any problems.

Brett called once the vehicle was done, it was pretty late in the day and honestly I was worried about getting there before they closed. He told me that if I was unable to get there before they closed to give them a call. They have an entire pick up procedure for after hours. AMAZING!!!

When I got to the shop and was checking out, Brett went over everything again that they had fixed and why they had fixed what they had fixed.

Needless to say, I was HIGHLY IMPRESSED with the level of service I received from this shop. It was remarkably clean, the men I spoke to were perfect gentlemen. They made sure I understood everything that was going on with my car. They gave me a very fair and honest price. And the service was remarkably fast especially considering the amount of work that needed done.

I will be back for some additional work I need to have done.

I always have a professional experience when I come here. They know what they're doing, they're not going to try to rob you, and they can get parts in quickly and make sure you're ready to go before sending you out.

I now have 179,000 miles on my Ford Fusion Hybrid, and had an unusual problem that appeared around 170,000 miles: the car had stopped operating as a gasoline/battery hybrid and was operating mostly on gasoline without the battery assist. Baum Boulevard Automotive read up on the unusual issue and purchased software that they were able to use to reprogram Ford's computer to get the batteries working again. My gas mileage has increased about 15% since the reprogram last week and the acceleration, now battery-assisted once again, allows me to enter the interstates as quickly as I did when the car was new. Well done, Baum Boulevard!
