    Catalytic converter thefts are still happening in our area. Rytek just installed a cat shield on my 2015 Prius. No rattles, and no more worries about leaving it parked overnight. Much more convenient than taking it to a dealer.

    We have been using Rytek for many years for basic oil changes, regular maintenance etc. But this time we had to take my daughter’s 2009 Kia Rio5 that she has only had for 45 days that had a check engine light on. Turns out the engine was full of sludge due to lack of maintenance from the previous owner. It was the worst they had ever seen. They accepted the challenge and cleaned out the sludge and got “Miss Kia” (as my daughter calls it) back up and running. They were so kind and caring, knowing that it was her first car. They explained everything in detail and really made her feel good about the service and what to expect next. Thank you Joe and Jamie, you have earned a new customer (my daughter) for life!!

    Rytek used to be the best place in Fairport to get your car worked on, but not anymore! Now they over charge and lie! I referred a friend/employee to Rytek for a wheel bearing replacement, inspection and good look-over on his 2014 Subaru Forester. An hour and a half after drop-off he received a text… “Good morning (name disclosed). Joe from Rytek. After looking at your vehicle, we noticed a few things. Left rear bearing is definitely loud. The right rear may have some noise as well, but cannot tell for sure till left rear is done. To do that bearing parts and labor, cost would be with tax, 771.27. Rear brakes morning specifically left rear outside pad is very low. Not sure if the pads are stuck in caliper or if caliper is bad. For the rear brakes, (pads and rotors) cost for that service is, with tax, 583.20. NYS inspection was due 6 months ago. For that it would need a right front control arm because bushings are pulling out and it has a bad ball joint. To do that part, parts, labor, and tax would be 752.82. Lastly, air filter is very dirty. For that, 51.84. Just let us know what you would like to do. Thanks, Joe.” After seeing this, I immediately told my friend to have them drop it off the lift and tell them to have a good day. Those prices are plain robbery! To not get into too much detail about what labor and parts cost I implore you to always do your own research based on your vehicle. That is like 300X over MSRP for parts in this case including their estimated labor time. We called around to a few more shops to get pricing on just the control arm replacement to pass inspection. Would you believe that 2-3 other shops quoted $300-400 less than Rytek? We got a quote from Elmer’s for $380. After taking it to Elmer’s, they looked and found out that there was no need for a replacement control arm and ONLY the ball joint was bad. They also checked the brakes and they were not bad either! Yes, the wheel bearing was bad which was why he went there in the first place and now I will be taking care of that myself. In the end, we went from $2107.29 at Rytek to $230 at Elmer’s, plus a $100 wheel bearing from rock auto and some beers. Rytek has gone from being outstanding and honestly priced to “happy smile” and take you for a run, hoping you don’t know anything about the cost of labor, time, price of parts or cars in general. I do NOT recommend Rytek after this experience, and I hope others do their research before just saying yes because its “already at the shop”.

    This is hands down the best auto repair garage in Rochester! They will have your car running perfect and they are 100% fair. I swear you bring your car here, it will run like new. They are the best. Thanks Rytek for everything!

    I went to Rytek after i couldn’t believe what the dealer was quoting me for repairs. I had an awesome experience with Rytek Auto. They diagnosed the problem, and made the repairs in a prompt and courteous manner. Affordable and professional. Even told me I didn’t need a repair that the dealer tried to gouge me for $1,700 for. Joe was very honest, upfront, and helpful.
