the major character in the movie Cars and its sequels, Cars 2 and Cars 3 as well as Cars Toons, was inspired by a 1951 International Harvester tow truck.

I would definitely recommend CSE for repair services or inspections! I had a car that needed an enhanced inspection done. A process only select shops can perform in the state of pennsylvania. I had been told it would be a long and difficult process. Bill and his staff walked me through the process from start to finish!. It was a pleasure to deal with real mechanics, Not someone bolting on random parts suggested by a computer program.

I had a 5 star experience after going somewhere else first. The other place gave me a $2100 Estimate for repairs and I searched for a better price which led me to repairpal.com on cars.com where I found CSE. They had a better price and good reviews so I took my car there. It turns out that I did not need the repairs that the other place tried to scame me for. A THorough inspection of my vehicle was done and I got a print out in addition to a verbal explanation of the condition of my car. The staff is very friendly and I felt as if they treated me like family. I will definitely go back there the next time I need any work done on my car.

I just wanted to let you know that I recently did a big trip up through western Mass and into Vermont for a few days of camping and riding. The van is running great and what's more I was getting about 27 miles to the gallon on the highway. Amazing!
Before that last round of engine work it was almost half of that.
Thank you for your expert work in getting that engine back to such efficiency and enjoyability!
6/22/15 I have brought two vehicles to CSE for shop work and frame welding. Both times they did an excellent job. The work wasn't cheap, but you get what you pay for. They also stand behind their work unlike a shop that may not be there in a few years. They have done an excellent job on an old diesel land rover that requires pretty specific maintenance. I will be using them many years into the future
Finding a car shop that really knows how to service a VW Bug is a challenge... like finding a needle in a haystack. Found the needle a couple of years ago, and threaded it, too: CSE not only knows the make and model, they know my car. They've been considerate in their treatment of it and me. Would not go anywhere else.

We were told by our dealer that our older Jetta needed a major repair costing @ $1,000 to fix an oil leak. The team at CSE, and especially Seth, diagnosed the problem with old world skill and fix the problem for 1/3rd the dealer estimate. And they fixed it correctly, the first time. I would not hesitate to send anyone to CSE for reliable and accurate repairs on their vehicle. They specialize in VW/Audi products, but the team has a vast knowledge of everything automotive.

I have a 1985 Volvo with over 300,000 miles on it. CSE has always been able to repair and keep it running well without breaking my budget.

Bill, owner of CSE, is extremely knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. I have always been impressed by his integrity. He has never recommended a repair that didn't need to be done. A very competent and efficient shop.

I have taken my vehicles to CSE since 1997. I can't praise the quality of work enough. Once you go to CSE, meet the guys, experience the quality of their work, you'll become a loyal customer like me.
This shop is flexible and will do things like custom exhaust where other shops either shy away from or charge and arm and a leg. Good workmanship here.
Glenn Glenside, Pa.
Have spent some hours chatting with Bill and his mechanics as they worked on my car. They are all car enthusiasts, and have considerable expertise. They take their time and work as if it was their own car. Their wheel mounting and balancing is without peer -- I have been driving since 1965 ... they are the best I have ever had. Highest recommendation. No BS ... I have a rare high-performance Volvo SW ... and I will let no one else touch it.
Peter Blue Bell, Pa
Nice people, great service, reasonable prices. They are personable and take the time to explain their work, I never leave feeling like I was overcharged or had unneeded work done.
They are friendly, courteous, professional and convenient.

Bill Sherwood and team provide clear work estimates and timely completion and they know what they are doing.
