In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking the following precautions:
Rick Snyder is a MINI Cooper Master Certified Technician and a Level 2 Certified BMW Technician. He has more than 20+ years service experience, including 18 years at the dealer and 5 years at an Independent BMW and MINI shop. Rick decided to open his own BMW and MINI Specialist shop to continue his passion working on European vehicles.
Rick (the owner) of Snyder's is one of the most kind, fair, honest, and good-hearted mechanics out there! Not only that, but he is extremely talented and skilled at what he does! He chased an electrical issue I was having and did a ton of other work for me. Rick wanted my car fixed as much as I did, you don't find that passion just anywhere. Anytime there was an update I'd receive a call from him and we would discuss the next steps. He always kept me in the loop. I will definitely be a repeat customer, the hour drive is worth it. If you have a MINI and want fair and honest work that will be done right with quality parts, look no further than Snyder's!
I can’t say enough about the exemplary service I received at Snyder Automotive. Owner, Rick Snyder, quickly and accurately diagnosed the problem with my Mini’s door latch. He took the time to explain the issue and how he would handle the repair.
As a first time client, I was delighted to learn that the service appointment included a comprehensive inspection of my Mini Cooper, “Dot.”
Erin promptly prepared a quote and scheduled my service appointment. I was updated throughout the service
appointment. Additional problems, found during the inspection, were brought to my attention.
Rick and Erin exceeded my expectations on every level. When I picked up “Dot” I found many items had been repaired at no charge. I had no idea that my spare tire was flat and in need of repair. Rick took care of it no charge. The hood latches weren’t operating properly due to corrosion. Again, Rick repaired at no charge. No detail was overlooked. My license plate holder was unsightly and in need of repair - I hadn’t noticed, but Rick did - repaired at no charge. I was thrilled with the professional service I received. And the icing on the cake - Dot, my treasured little Mini had received a bubble bath as her final service. She looked and ran better than she had in months.
Mini of Pittsburgh and Bud Smail have both serviced “Dot”. Neither experience comes close to the kid glove treatment Dot and I received from Rick and Erin. Without hesitation I would recommend Snyder Automotive.
Service was excellent; parts I needed came quickly. They was very nice people and easy to talk to I'd definitely recommend and will be going back.
Snyder Automotive is top notch service! They are super kind, diagnosed every problem we were having on our Volkswagen and fixed it rather quickly. I can’t say enough good things about this business.
