5 Stars! Ottohaus provides Fast, excellent service. Chris was awesome. They brought my car in right away and replaced my headlight in 10 minutes and it was so quick they didn't charge me for it. I have a 2003 Jaguar and I will only go here from now on. Cool waiting room too! These dudes rock!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

Beyond impressed! Kris and the guys at Ottohaus we’re SO kind from the minute I walked in. I had never been here before but purchased a used car that needed to be completely looked over. They were efficient, honest, and so professional. This is the only place I will go from now on. Highly recommend!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

I’ve been to this shop multiple times, with my old and new Volkswagen. They’ve always given such great customer service and are great communicators. They are honest people who just want to help you and that’s hard to come by. Went in again today for a couple bulb replacements and was in and out in 30 mins! Highly recommend.read more

The most reliable and honest place I’ve ever taken my vehicles. Amazing customer service and always getting my cars repaired in a timely manner, while saving me money in the process. Only place I’ve been too that cares about the people just as much as the service they are providing. I’ve been coming here for years and even after moving out of state I come back here cause they are the only place I can trust and rely on.read more

Leo is the best in the business when it comes to German engineering. Between the professionalism of how he runs his business to the knowledge he has on motors and mechanics, there is no one else I'd take my vehicles to. 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

Top notch repairs done by top of their game mechanics. The entire Staff was extremely nice. Being an automotive head myself professionally painting cars and tooling on them on the side I can tell you that if you ever need any thing done with your car ( I personally currently have an Audi) this is the place to go. They have exceeded my expectations numerous times with several of my cars with complete honesty. They seemed to Always have an answer to any questions!!! It’s unreal. Don’t even hesitate or second guess it. They have the right tools and knowledge to do the job!! Thank you guys for your perfection!!! Ottohaus of charlestonread more

I needed a new bulb for a tail light. They fit me right in that day, and greeted me as soon as I got out of my car. As I waited (a very short wait), I watched as they helped other customers. They were very courteous and made sure each person understood what needed to be done to their car. Everyone was very friendly, and pricing is extremely fair. The dealership would have been a very different experience.read more

I visited this place for the first time about a month ago. Leo is about as professional as they come. Extremely knowledge. Could talk to him about my Volkswagen for hours and never get stumped on a question. When I'm around the Charleston area I will never bring my Volkswagen or any of my cars to any place. Please consider these guys the next time your looking for a great place to have your car worked on. Great guys, great minds, great service!read more

My son and his girlfriend are traveling in our 220K mile Golf TDI and had an issue with the car. Ottohaus was able to take a look at the car immediately and identify the issue. It was not major/immediate, so they are continuing their trip toward home. They did not charge us for taking a thorough look at the car. Their kindness is greatly appreciated by a worried dad in TN! Highly recommended!read more

Ottohaus is hands down the BEST garage I have ever had a vehicle serviced at. They are extremely knowledgable, polite, and honest. I booked an appointment for a service I didn't need yet. They didn't just take my money like they could've, they actually told me I could wait even though they ordered the parts. Highly recommend these guys!read more

This shop did EXTENSIVE engine work on my '07 A4. They were thorough, timely despite a heavily packed yard, and always aware of the expense of major work. Leo was careful to explain pros and cons, what needed to be done, and didn't push what wasn't critical on top of the critical to inflate his price. I drove 100 miles to deliver my car to Leo for two major jobs, and would again.read more

Leo and his team of Audi/VW experts are the best, period. Specializing in Audi/VW this shop sets the standard for quality of service, honesty, integrity and amazing prices in the entire Charleston area (beyond that really). Leo's knowledge of these finely-tuned machines provides a refreshing peace-of-mind that comes with knowing that your vehicle will be in the capable hands of a qualified and reputable shop who will go above and beyond for you.read more
