They are the best...always courteous, always explain in detail the repairs to your car, prices are reasonable and most of all it is truly a well qualified professional business. I would recommend Ottohaus to anyone that owns a foreign car. They are tops in my book!read more

Five stars again and again and again! From part replacements, to regular... maintenance and diagnostics- Ottohaus of Charleston is the number one place to go. Kris and the Ottohaus team are knowledgeable, experienced, efficient, professional and care about you and your car! They’ve gotten me on the schedule quickly, some times same day, and have been done with my car in an hour or less (dependent on the amount of work)! Each time I’ve brought my car in, I feel such ease leaving my keys with them. They are thorough and check all fluids before returning my car and discuss any issues they found with me afterwards! I trust their professional opinion and will continue to go to them for any issues- big or small! $$- Best price for German cars in the lowcountry!read more

I was well received after communicating that I wouldn' be on time for an... impromptu appointment. I needed an SRS light reset after a camera install I made a mistake on. Kris and the other technicians were polite, and very prompt! The icing on the cake was that I am preparring the vehicle for military transfer across the states and he did not charge me for the reset. I cannot speak to any other garage that would do the same. Thanks!read more

They're super knowledgeable, treat their customers with respect, offer fair pricing and are great communicators throughout the entire repair service process. I've never once left there feeling as if I've been ripped off (like I have when leaving a dealership service center). Highly recommend them!read more

About a week ago I got an oil change at another auto shop and found it leaking... a few days later. I got my car towed to Ottohaus in Ladson and met the owner Josh there. Josh came right out and assisted me with my situation. He was respectful, timely, and genuine. Josh’s knowledge of my Volkswagen Golf was awesome and he had me in and out in about 30 minutes. He helped me during a stressful time. The customer service he provided was great. Awesome experience. Made me feel comfortable and welcome unlike a lot of other shops. I won’t take my car anywhere else.read more

My husband and I were in SC on vacation (from MI) when our van wouldn’t start... - and it wasn’t the battery. We were a bit desperate as we were planning to drive back home about 40 hours later. My husband called Ottohaus and was impressed right away. They were willing to take our van and look at it right away. Due to towing delays, it arrived after hours and they diagnosed next day. It was a bad starter. Within 24 hours of discovering our plight, we were back on the road! Amazing, so helpful, professional, and quick! If we lived in Charleston, this would be our go-to shop! I didn’t even realize until writing this that they specialize in German brands...so, so glad they accepted our Honda! I can’t rave enough about how grateful I am for their responsiveness!read more

These guys are awesome. Trust in an auto service shop is key, and after the... interaction I had with our Mercedes SUV, I'll be using them for everything. They went out of their way to get the car ready when they said they would, and though they had to do some extras they stuck to the original quoted price. Outstanding work from an outstanding team of guys. Before I buy another car, they're going to check it first and do whatever work needs to be done. It's great knowing I can trust the team.read more

Simply stated, Leo Colwill (owner) is one of the most trustworthy, honest... people in a sometimes dishonest business. Having run an auto repair shop myself, I’ve seen first hand from the owner of the sister-shop I ran for him how dishonest it can be. Finding a trustworthy mechanic is hard but if you live the Charleston area, Ottohaus is the place you want as your go-to for anything auto repair related.read more

Leo is the best in the business when it comes to German engineering.

On top of all this, he is one of the most trustworthy guys I know. If you have any problems with your vehicle, you should feel no doubt when bringing it to Otthohaus to get fixed. You will NOT be disappointed with the work he does at the price you pay for it.read more
