"I've been going here for a year now and could not be happier with the
service and prices. This is actually just another location for the other Safari, with the owner--Ali--switching between the two shops as needed for
customers. He's a wonderful man, incredibly polite and kind who takes so
much time to explain everything to the customer. I first found him when I
needed new tires and brakes. He was the only mechanic who took the time to
make sure I was getting the right tires for my needs and to make sure my
tires were safe for me to drive with until I had time to make my purchase.
Since then, my husband and I have been taken our two cars to Safari
exclusively and we've always been surprised at how inexpensive the bills
are. We always get appointments very quickly no matter when we call. Ali
and his team work overtime to make sure we get the service we want when
have the time for it. Ali's even helping us to sell both of our cars now
that we're moving to California. He's given us lots of advice about car
standards in California and, though he could have sold our cars himself, he
has been objective in advising us to when it's better to sell to friends or
family than to sell through him. We find him to be thoroughly honest and
open in our dealings with him.
We're going to sorely miss Safari Auto when we move to California. Safari
has been the best place we've ever been to."

"Last May while my car was being inspected, the tires were rotated. From
that point forward I kept hearing this "whup-whup-whup" noise every time I
drove my car. I tried talking to the person who had rotated them but we
ended up playing phone tag and I eventually just gave up. Long story short,
because of this my right back tire was wearing unevenly and I had a blowout
on the highway. Pretty scary. I won't go back to Safari, not only because
of their lack of service and the blowout but I live in Wilkes Barre now and
have found a closer mechanic."

"Ali treats your vehicle like it was your only child...There's no reason to
take your vehicle anywhere else, and if you do, you're making a big
mistake...Trust, ability and sincerity is the name of the game
here...knowing that Ali is there makes it so easy in dealing with the
stress of owning a vehicle...so go see Ali...thank you."

"I have been going to Safari Automotive Service for almost 10 years.
Throughout this time I have averaged about a total of 5 - 6 (total family
vehicles) cars per year being serviced here. The work has included normal
maintenance and more complex repairs including accidents. I have found
this establishment to be very professional with excellent & reliable
repairs. Charges have been very reasonable. Highly recommended!"

"I started taking my cars for service to Safari Automotive (Emmaus, PA
location) about a year ago, after reading a lot of good reviews about this
place. I have been living in this area for 20 years and I tried several
mechanics before then. I am extremely happy with my experience at Safari.
Ali is very honest, knows his stuff, and finds the problem right away and
fixes it for good. What else can I ask for? One thing that really makes
him stand apart is his passion for cars. He takes care of my cars as if
they are his own! He goes in detail what he did to them, shows all the
parts he replaced and expalins why they failed. He advises against
unnecessary repair or service even when I asked for it in the first place!
I am kicking my self for not finding him sooner."

"I have been a client for more than 5 years. After moving to Emmaus, I was
in need of a professional, yet trustworthy automotive repair shop. I have
3 automobiles, and all 3 are in much different stages of their lives. I
know a fair amount about cars, mechanics, electrical systems etc, but I
just don't have the time to work on the cars myself. Every single time I
took my vehicles there, I was provided a correct diagnosis, a discussion of
alternatives, and a professional completion of the work. For all of you
that are looking for a trustworthy, locally owned automotive shop, this is
your place! I consider the owner of this shop a part of my family and a

"I went to Safari automotive for the first time a couple months ago for
inspection for my car. They did a wonderful job and called and told me
anything they found that needed to be fixed for inspection to pass. They
explain things thoroughly and take the time to talk with you. They are
honest, and give you the best price they can and do great work. I went back
to have a new timing belt and water pump put in and some seals, and they
did great work on that as well. They don't try to sell anything. He showed
me the parts they took out and then showed me the new parts they put in and
told me what else they checked and in the future to replace some things. I
would go back to them and I would refer them."

"My previous experiences with mechanics were either getting treated poorly by some chain automotive business or grossly overcharged by a dealership. Neither of these things will happen at Safari Automotive. I've been a customer for five years and have never had a problem. Ali and his staff are knowledgeable and know what they're doing. They always take the time to explain exactly what's going on with my car and what it needs. I was there just yesterday to get my car inspected, and I feared that it would need a lot of work. In reality, it needed two tires and that was it. With the cost of inspection/emissions and the tires, it ended up being only $130. If you're in need of a fair mechanic with reasonable prices, Safari is the place to go. I'm going to be moving to the Pocono/Wilkes-Barre area soon but will still trek down to Allentown if my car needs anything."

"My husband and I have been faithful customers of Safari Automotive for 7 years now and we will never take our cars anywhere else. In addition to the fact that they do quality work at decent prices, they are trustworthy and they stand behind their work. Ali and his staff make me feel like their most important customer and I cannot recommend Safari automotive highly enough."

"Thank you so much Ali, at Safari Auto for your help with my car. I will refer all my friends and family to your shop. Again thank you and your shop is very neat and clean."
"Hello Ali, Just wanted to tell you THANK YOU some much to taking my wife's car in for service and inspection in a such a short time. We really like your service and honest pricing, we always refer our friends and family to your shop."

"Love this shop, my car have been in good hands for the past 5yrs now. I trust no one else but Safari to work on my car when it matters most. Ali knows his cars. LOVE SAFARI."

"When it comes to knowledgable, friendly, and HONEST auto service, you probably won't find more than a handful of mechanics who fit this kind of character. Safari is one of those few shops which has it all. Ali will actually take the time to walk you through your vehicle and explain everything in detail and will always fit you into his busy schedule WITH a smile! I have taken my car to Safari Automotive for approximately 5 years, and I have had a great experience dealing with Ali and his staff and I will continue to go to Safari. Thank you Ali!"
"I have a Jeep with a history of electrical problems, particularly involving starting issues. The vehicle was not starting consistently when dropped off. In addition, the vehcile needed new tires, rear brakes, timing belt, and oil change/regular maintenance. All problems were addressed and corrected: New Battery, 4 new tires, Rear brakes, New timing belt, Oil and Filter change...Because the electrical issue was a difficult diangosis, Safari had the vehicle for a couple days before finding inconsistent battery voltage output. So far, replacing the battery has solved a recurrent problem that two dealerships were unable to fix. All other problems were corrected/replaced in a timely, courteous manner for a cost signficantly less than our local dealerships. Ali, the owner/operator, offered various options for the services and checked-in regularly. Even after a new problem emerged a day after I picked up the vehicle, Safari took the vehicle back immediately, and the new problem was fixed the same day. Now, nearly a month later, I have had no problems with the vehicle."

"I had bought a Convertible car from Safari Automotive dealer and had a great experience. The owner of the dealer ship was very friendly and easy to talk to. I would recommend this automotive facility/ dealership to all my friends and any one who wanted to buy a used car that is in great condition. I never had any car dealer ship treat me more like family then this place. I give it a 5 STAR rating, and 2 Thumbs up. Thank you again for my dream car Safari Automotive!"

"I first used this location when it was Jim's Chestnut Street Station. Since Ali has taken over, the value and quality that Jim started continues. Ali and his staff are fantastic! Fast...responsive...expert service! That is what you will get at Safari From my wife's newer Sienna to my 15 year old Subaru, Ali and his staff keep us safe and on the road! Safari is wonderful member of our Emmaus community!"

"May 18, 2012 5 Safari Automotive Sales & Svc A trustworthy, honest mechanic ★★★★★
I've been taking my car here for 7 years and I'll never take it anywhere else. Ali and his staff are always friendly and knowledgeable and they do great work at great prices. I work second shift, so the after-hours drop off has been really convenient. I never worry that I'm being taken advantage of or being overcharged as everything is always carefully explained to me and because Safari Automotive stands by their work"
