    Update (Nov '21): I've continued to use Rudy for a variety of services since my initial review (some steering work, undercoating, etc.) They continue to impress. They are very responsive, even to email, which is convenient. … More As always, the quality of their work remains excellent.
    Rudy does excellent work. They were honest about when they could start the project (about two weeks out). They didn’t just lie and say they can start immediately to get the vehicle in there. Once they started working, they responded to all my calls and emails promptly. They dealt with all of the insurance company things that I never saw. The vehicle was completed when they promised and appears to be in perfect condition. Highly recommend.

    I was driving in Syracuse (from Rochester) and hit a tire on the expressway that really messed up my car. I called Rudy Schmid's and despite having a jam packed day, they made time for me. They were so kind and helpful, I dont know … More what I would have done without them. I am extremely grateful. Give them your business, you wont be disappointed.
