Midtown Autoworks is a local independent Porsche and Mercedes-Benz repair facility. We have a 6,000 square foot repair facility centrally located in midtown Sacramento. Midtown Autoworks was founded based on the idea that Porsche™ and Mercedes™ owners in the Sacramento area need a dealer alternative with equal, and even superior, expertise. At Midtown Autoworks, we maintain a personal relationship with our customers, which is often missing in a dealership environment. We treat each car as if it were our own, communicate with you throughout the repair process, and are always willing to explain each job from start to finish.


Established in 2012.

Midtown Autoworks is a Porsche™ and Mercedes™ independent service center located in Midtown Sacramento. Privately owned and operated, we provide "Dealer Quality" service while maintaining an excellent level of customer service. We, to our core, believe that Service Customers deserve a far superior level of commitment and customer service, something that dealership service centers do not always provide.

   The simple truth of the matter is this: If we decided to remain with a Dealership Service Center, and not venture out on our own, your vehicle would have been serviced by us at one point in time or the other. By opening our own service center, we now can provide high quality service while being more affordable to you, the end consumer.

Niko is the BEST!!!!!! I Have a check engine light on 2012 C250 and brought the car at Mercedes benz dealership since I have an extended warranty. dealer check it and said it will cover under the warranty. late in the afternoon dealer called me and said the damage will not be covered because it's rodent damage on wiring. dealer said they will charge me $750.00 to do the work. I research on google and found midtown autoworks with good review. talk to niko and told him about my problem and told me to bring the car and he will not charge me diagnostic fee to look on the car. brought the car the next day in the morning and around noon he said he will repair the car for $200.00 and was so happy and save myself $500.00. if there's a 10 star rating on yelp, I will give this to midtown autoworks. his place is clean and very honest to customer. highly recommended....GOOD JOB NIKO!!!!!!!

Midtown Auto Works is simply the best!  Niko does the service and repairs on my 2001 Carerra as if it were his own!   I wouldn't take my most prized possession anywhere else!  He provide thorough, honest, and fairly priced services and always explains everything fully and clearly with no B.S.!  He always goes the extra mile to make sure I am happy and my Porsche is performing as it should.

First thing I notice about this spot is that it is super clean. Always a good sign for me. Second thing I notice is how great Nico is and really knowledgeable on his Mercedes. They were also able to drop me off at my job which is close by. Just moved to the area and this is for sure my go to shop now. Highly recommend

Niko is very friendly and fixed a major problem with my Boxster (IMS bearing) for a very reasonable price. The experience was quite refreshing compared to the stuffy corporate environment at most German Car dealerships.His shop is clean and Niko is a factory certified mechanic without the Porsche pricing! His is the most tech savvy shop that I have dealt with with instant internet access to prior repairs and future scheduling and commuications. Highly recommended

Chetria R. | 2014-11-20

Niko is a 5 star! He is amazing, both him & his father has helped us with our porsche at such a great price. They were able to fix our car which was done at the same time it was set to be done. I would recommend this shop to anyone who needs help with their car. Customer service is amazing. They definitely have a return customer! Thanks midtown auto works!

John D. | 2014-11-11

Excellent service. I drop off my porsche 993  monday afternoon, without making an appointment, they gave me a ride home and the car was ready on tuesday.  Oil change and brake flush was done. Fast service for sure, very reasonable price, very honest people.
I will go back for sure.

Colby S. | 2014-09-23

Excellent service and very reasonable pricing.  Niko is always so helpful and accommodating, he has serviced and done alignment on my family's and friends cars and today is helping me out looking a car over that is for sale.  I will always keep this shop in mind when something is needed on anything European, thanks guys!

Anthony T. | 2014-09-09

Hello, I called your shop and was told that I would receive a call back. I am still waiting on a call in reference to the cost to get the oil pan gasket replaced on my 1984 190D. The yelp reviews are the reason I called you since I care about my car, but it seems you are too busy to give a simple call back to a new customer with more than one Mercedes that needs service. Thank you!

The message wasn't sent, please try again later.

I get this message when posting on your website and trying to submit for an appointment.

Excellent service!  I was stranded in Folsom with a cooling problem.  My Porsche had been recently repaired by another (far-distant) shop, and they found Niko for me.  Niko arranged the tow, offered refreshments, and when it was clear it needed to stay the night he assisted in finding accommodations.  He even got me a ride to the hotel.  The problem was solved promptly the next morning, and I was on my way with no further issues.  Best of all, the repair was under warranty from my shop in SLO county- Niko accepted their promise of payment and didn't charge me a dime!!  The charges were very reasonable as well.  He billed the other shop quite fairly.  All this knowing that I live much too far away to be a regular customer.  A clean, profesional shop with an honorable, conscientious owner.  It doesn't get any better than this.

Niko is the best in town. We fully trust him with our Cayenne.

Chris A. | 2014-05-14

Owner/operator business. Niko is incredible. Not very many shops around like this. Excellent prices. Excellent customer service. Incredibly thorough. Highly recommended service center!

Keith H. | 2014-01-08

I have been going to Niko every since I purchased my 2001 CLK convertible! Excellent service and prices! Simply the best decision for a pre-owned Mercedes Benz owner!

John W. | 2013-11-15

I drive a new-to-me 2001 Porsche Boxster S.  It has 75K miles and needed a few things serviced and replaced.  I saw the straight five-star ratings of this shop on Yelp and learned that the owner is a former Porsche dealership technician and therefore has the proper training and experience needed to work on these wonderful but expensive cars.  I stopped by one day to check out the shop and was impressed at the cleanliness and willingness of the owner (Niko) to discuss my car with me.  I am an amateur mechanic, so I knew right away that this man knows his stuff.  I decided to bring my car in for the work it needed.  I was not disappointed.  The work was rather major (new clutch and IMS bearing upgrade) requiring transmission removal.  He did not rush the work, and showed me the progress he was making when I came by to visit.  He was always courteous and patient, never condescending.  When I got the car back it was correct and ran great.  He told me of several things the car did NOT need, and assured me (an apprehensive new owner) that the car was fine and that I should just enjoy it.  

The price for the work was reasonable (considering Porsche parts are expensive) and was considerably less than it would have been at a dealer.  I am also confident that the work was performed in a more conscientious way than it would have been at a dealer.  

Finally, Niko's dad, Spiro, took me home in his beautiful Mercedes when I left my car at the shop.  I feel that I have made new friends as well as having my car brought up to snuff.  I recommend Midtown Autoworks.

Bought a 190E last month. Took it here for an inspection after purchase. Niko was very honest, attentive and observant about the car and advised to try to work out the brake issues with the dealer before paying him to do work. Decided eventually to get the job done right (with Niko) , and not only got a decent price (considering the level of repairs needed) but now it feels like this old Benz has now increased in value somewhat. Highly recommend this shop for any and all Mercedes work, for Benzes old and new.

I needed help with my older Mercedes 560SL. I found Midtown Autoworks through Yelp. I read the reviews and thought I would give it a shot since it was close to my work.
It was my best decision of the day.

Niko is great and I highly recommend him. His knowledge and honestly is unparalleled. He went out of his way to help me. If you looking for a mechanic for your car, I would highly recommend Niko. He will go the extra mile for you.

Jessica H. | 2013-07-22

Wow--what a helpful business!  I called just to get quotes on detailing, and they provided me with so many ideas and resources.  Much more than I imagined.

Jim A. | 2013-05-16

Niko at Midtown Autoworks deserves five stars for service, price and thoroughness.

I needed to get a transmission service on my older mercedes sedan and my normal place didn't have the right equipment, so they directed me to Midtown on 16th and E. I was a little frustrated the first time I came in due to a wait and unavailability that day (but I want it now), but headed back after making an appointment.

My transmission service was close to 15% less than other mercedes places in the region, and I didn't have to go far. His dad is a great guy too; it was an easy drive to/from work (not everywhere will transport you when they work on your car). The waiting area is nice with water, tv and magazines.

He did a thorough review of my car, noting several things/issues that I was aware of, and a couple new ones. I was also able to get a better handle on a starting issue and order new keys. He wasn't big on up-selling or overselling what needed to be done. I appreciate an honest mechanic, since I often work on my car to save money with my dad and have a sixth sense for it. I will be back again, so you should check them out too.

I found this place driving down the street and stopped in. This place is clean and looks like the real deal. He worked on my 911 and did an amazing job. Not to mention much cheaper than the dealer and same kind of work if not better. The great side is he use to work for the dealership so you have best of both worlds, a man that knows what he is doing and at an amazing price. Not to mention I saw how he was with his family. Good man and he is running an outstanding busines. I highly recommend this place.

Doug K. | 2012-10-26

The passenger-side window on my 2006 911 hadn't operated properly for several months. A friend recommended Niko at Midtown Autoworks, a relatively new shop. I made an appointment, and Niko diagnosed and fixed the problem within 15 minutes. Niko is courteous, his shop is well kept and prices are less than dealer shops.

I highly recommend Midtown Autoworks.

J F. | 2012-10-17

I am so happy I found this place.  Having recently moved from Marin to Sacramento I was struggling to find good service for my 2005 E55 which I previously had serviced at R.A.B. (Mercedes Dealer) in Marin.  After several times visiting Von Housen service in Sacramento and Rocklin I was severely disappointed with the lack of personal attention and I felt like such a number instead of valued customer.
Everything has changed for the better now that Midtown Auto has opened and they have gone above and beyond my expectations on warranty covered repairs as well as regular maintenance.  The attention to detail and customer care at this shop is truly superb and I continue to recommend it to all of my friends and family members.  Thanks Nikko!!!

Jenice G. | 2012-10-16

I love this shop! Having only taken my car to the dealership for repairs, I was a little apprehensive, but the moment I spoke to the owner, Nikko, over the phone I relaxed. He provided excellent service and is very personable. His shop provides topnotch service to Mercedes and Porche owners. I highly recommend Midtown Autoworks.

Jen R. | 2012-10-12

Great service, friendly owner......glad I was made aware of this place. They serviced my 911, paid for my rental car, and had my car done sooner than expected.

Nikko was honest about what my car needed and didn't need. The dealer wanted to charge me hundreds more for the same service.

I wouldn't hesitate recommending this place or coming back.

Matt S. | 2012-08-13

K, promise this will be much shorter than the novel I wrote in my last review.

My extended warranty was about to run out (literally had another 14 miles to go when I pulled into Midtown) and there were some major items I wanted Niko to look at. Looking back on it, I feel bad because I thought I might have overwhelmed Niko with the amount of work that needed to be done, but he was nonchalant about it and more than willing to take it on. Most past indy shops I've gone to would have grumbled and done an incomplete job, so that was certainly a welcome change.

Not gonna go into the grimy mechanical details, but safe to say Niko did a TON of work (required the car to be in the shop for a week) and handled it all beautifully working with my warranty company. Everything got repaired that I wanted to and Niko went wayyyyy beyond what I asked him to do, which is a lot more than I can say about the indies I've visited in the past and even worse, dealerships. I don't think I can thank him and his father enough. And yeah, I'm a really picky dude when it comes to my car and I can't think of one bad thing to say about the work Niko did. He set me up with the rental and took care of every single aspect of the repairs. All the while, he never forgot about me and made sure to keep me updated with the progress so I knew when I could expect my car back.

The car looks better, runs like butter and just feels like a brand new car. It's amazing -- he's extremely knowledgeable about Mercedes so you know you're in good hands. I'm also happy that he added another Benz in his stable (and one of the rarer ones to boot). He really does love cars and that's the foundation for a wonderful mechanic.  Last but certainly not least, the donut shop flavored coffee that they stock for their Keurig might have been the best coffee I've ever had.

Do not hesitate to bring your Benz or Porsche to Midtown. I'm eternally grateful that I met Niko that fateful day in the Jamba Juice parking lot. I'm confident Niko treats all his clients just as good as he has treated me. Best. Shop. EVER.

Stacy S. | 2012-06-20

I can't say enough good things about my experience with Midtown Autoworks. Nikko was extremely clear with me about what my Boxter needed and, knowing I am on a budget, recommended the way to prioritize the work starting with safety issues, maintenance, and then cosmetic issues. Not only did his prices beat what the dealership quoted me by over $2000, he provided several of the services without charge (airbag check) or only for parts (replacing a small clip on my wind screen) and provided me a 2 day rental at no charge while the work was being done. He called me regularly with updates, explained my options, and did not condescend to me when I asked questions about the work. This type of service is unheard of in this day and age. I value honest, high quality work and always attempt to support neighborhood and local vendors. I will now bring my car to Nikko for all my car services because of his skill and integrity. You can tell he takes pride in how work and in his customer's satisfaction.

Found Midtown Autoworks on yelp as I was looking for a new shop in Sac for my Mercedes. I called and spoke to Niko the owner to get a quote on brakes. I had called approximately 5 other shops before calling Midtown, and ALL of them had to "call me back" with quotes. Not the case here, Niko was very knowledgeable, courteous, and knew exactly what he was talking about. He gave me the best quote of all the shops (after they called me back). Even though the price was nice, I was really leaning toward this shop anyway just based on the phone experience. Took my car down to Niko, he was very accommodating as far as when I brought my car in & the shop is SUPER cool, and very clean. One of the nicest shops I've been in. Very stylish lobby. He offered a ride home even, but I had someone follow me there. This is a VERY nice option if you don't have someone to get you, so perk for sure. So, the repairs were done on my car, very satisfied, GREAT price, and just a very great overall experience. I would HIGHLY recommend this shop in Midtown for anyone who has a Mercedes or Porsche. I will be back for all the rest of the services I need.

This place just opened and if they keep up the nice work, prices they'll do just fine.  I took my 911 here to have the service done because it turned out cheaper than taking it to the dealer again and its way closer for me.  The guy was SUPER nice and helpful.  The place is really stylish too.  I know that shouldn't matter but its kind of nice when you take a care somewhere and the waiting room isn't some oil drenched mess with folding chairs.  This place was sharp and some obvious thought was put into it--nice design, comfy chairs, and had a Keurig machine and a TV (w/ cable! no sesame street while waiting).  

It was my 60k service so I just left my car there all day.  I really only spent a bit of time hanging out in their lobby cause when I came to pick up the car and the good looking guy (I think he's the owner) was helping another customer out, so I took advantage of the coffee machine and enjoyed my few minutes till he was free.  Anyway, price was right, customer service was really nice and they did a great job. I'd bring my Porsche back here again and am kind of happy I don't have to go out of the Sac Metro area to get it taken care of anymore.  I'm not sure if they do other cars. I think its just Mercedes and Porsche, but I'm not positive.  

I'll go here again.

Terry K. | 2012-03-13

After a friend's recommendation, I decided to take my mercedes in to get serviced and to replace the front brakes. They were really friendly and even gave me a ride to work! My car was ready for me by the end of the day.

It is such a relief to have quality work done on my car that is actually affordable! I am letting all of my friends know about this place!
