  • I have owned over the past 40 years a range of unusual italian and German car so have dealt with some very good mechanics. Zyblut Motors is the best in my experience. Great diagnosis. Great repair. Very fair pricing. Service with a capital S. Although I don't live in Amherst, my two aging BMWs and not so old Porsche will all be in Luke Zyblut's hands for any and all repairs. I stumbled on his shop by accident when the air suspension on my dealer maintained 540i went phooey just opposite his shop. A stroke of luck for me. No more dealer maintenance for me...talking through Service Managers and parts depts, who, good as they try to be, don't really know the cars as Luke does.

  • When I moved out of the country a couple of years ago, I had to sell the Mercedes 300D I bought from Luke. I was very, very sad. Luckily, I bought another 300D - this time with a turbo - this past year when I moved to Washington, D.C. I drove the car up to Luke for him to inspect it and give it his seal of approval. He raised it on the lift, visually inspected the whole vehicle, and told me I had done well and made a great find. In the years I have been his customer, Luke not only repaired my cars, but also gave me the education I needed to be able to make sound car-related decisions and perform much of the maintenance myself.

  • Luke was the only person I went to for service on my 1981 300D. He installed a new alternator and battery for me, and got me the absolute best possible price on an Interstate battery and a Bosch alternator. The bill also reflected that he and his employees wasted no time with the installations - the old parts were out and the new ones in right away, with the smallest fraction of the price I paid actually going to labor costs. Luke also was able to find parts for me at great prices whenever I was looking for them. He would always keep an eye out for me and called me when he found something I needed. When my old tires were struck with dry rot, Luke scoured every possible source and found me a great pair of Yokohamas at an astounding price, signed, sealed, and delivered right to his shop. They were installed and I was back on the road the next morning. To add to all of this, Luke did an emergency next-day ignition replacement for me and swapped out a messy oil gauge for m e in another car. I was amazed at the low costs and great physical appearance of the outcomes, considering the great difficulty in completing these repairs.

  • A few years ago, I bought my first car from Luke. It was like buying a car from a big brother. He guided me through the entire process, and even made me test drive cars other than the one I loved, just to make sure I made an educated decision when it came time to buy. After I bought the car (Mercedes 300D), Luke drove me to the Connecticut DMV so I could register my new car, and even spotted me a little cash when I came up short for the tax. I have gone to Luke for everything car related ever since, and even brought my mom to Luke a few years back. She has come back to him ever since. My whole family now relies on Luke.

    Satisfied Customer
  • Luke is the best. He is honest, knowledgeable, smart, and decent. I brought my BMW 325xi wagon to him until it was totaled. During the life of the car it needed a variety of repairs, and all of them were done in a timely fashion and at rates much lower than those charged by the local dealer. I look forward to having the opportunity to bring my car to him in the future (now driving a Murano, so this will have to wait). When I have been in the market for cars, Luke has helped me out in finding the right car, and he is generous with his time and knowledge. When I mention his name around town, everyone speaks of him and his shop in glowing terms.

  • Logan, Northampton, MA7 years ago

    Our 2004 Jetta 2.0 had a catastrophic failure when the engine mounts broke and, in the process, cracked the transmission casing. The car had to be towed to Zbylut Motor Works and Luke found us a transmission with only 44,000 miles on it. He replaced the transmission and we also had him replace the timing belt and water pump at the same time. The car was misfiring and Luke picked up on that and repaired it as well. The car runs like the day we bought and is as quiet as when it rolled off the showroom floor. All of this took less than 1 week!

    Luke's attention to detail and knowledge of cars is phenomenal. You know your mechanic looked over your car thoroughly when he let's you know the license plate light is out and the cabin air filter is dirty even though the problem that brought the car to him in the first place was 100% in the engine compartment.

    Finally, the prices are far less than what a dealer would charge. No dealer will ever match Luke's attention to detail and passion for cars, so getting his service at a lower price is a bonus. Some people point out that Zbylut is likely to repair things that "they didn't bring the car in for." In truth, they repair what needs to be repaired to keep your car in top shape. I like the attention to detail and the fact that they catch things that need to be addressed. The only reason things like that don't happen at other mechanic shops is because other people just don't care.

    I feel my car is in great hands with Zbylut Motor Works and Luke's attention to detail gives me confidence that I can keep this car forever if I choose to. This was our first trip to Zbylut as we are new to the area, but we will be going back for all of our maintenance and repair needs. Take your car to Zbylut if you care about its performance, maintenance and longevity. You won't be disappointed.
