Auto-Excel was amazing. They did a thorough job explaining what needed to be done and the car was ready when promised. Their customer service is spot on! Phillip Preston was wonderful to work with and made us feel at home. Mike was very welcoming and thoughtful. Thank you, Auto Excel for a job well done!

The staff at Auto Excel were knowledgeable, professional, courteous, and honest. My experience with them was the best I have had with an automotive shop, they genuinely care. They operate their business different than other places and their process works. I highly recommend Auto Excel and will refer all my friends to them. Thank you.

by - Verified Customer January 31, 2017

I was treated with kindness and respect. The work was completed on time. The price was more than I hoped, but probably not any higher than other places I might have gone. My biggest complaint was having to take the vehicle back 2 days after I picked it up for leaking fittings, though it was fixed with an apology and the only cost to me was the half a day spent waiting on the repairs.

by - Verified Customer January 26, 2017

I was very pleased with the great customer service!

by - Verified Customer January 25, 2017

I brought my car in and had it worked on. It was making the same noise. I called and said it was making the same noise. I brought it back and they said it needed 6,100. Worth of work and said were they fixed it it still was making the same noise. I could not drive it because it was a front axel. The guy with the beard, Dallas I think his name was, was rude and short with me. I did not want to deal with bring it back again so I went and bought another car.

I've asked the shop to send me more! Thanks, guys! See you for the next link in my budget-minded car repair chain!

Auto Excel is incredible shop!! They went so far above and beyond what another shop would do I didn't even know what to say. I will never go to another shop.

by - Verified Customer January 05, 2017

Overall the experience was good. The repair that needed to be done was an expensive repair. We appreciate that your shop could handle the repair. However there were to many add ons and your inspection although thorough all the items found wrong didn't really need be done.
I ended up taking my car to my mechanic with your inspection and the only thing they thought really need to be done was the front breaks, which we had them do. The other things that you said need to be done can wait. As a first time customer everything you wanted to do was overwhelming.

by - Verified Customer December 26, 2016

We brought my BMW x3 in because there was a 'popping' noise in the front end. Auto Excel fixed the problem and also gave our vehicle an over all assessment. They did find some issues, some we knew about and some we didn't. Dallas was great to work with. I waited while they worked on my vehicle and I must say that the waiting room was very clean and decorated very tasteful. Dallas kept me informed the whole time I was there. I really like that they also emailed our inspection sheet to us. Thank you Auto Excel for the great service to my vehicle and for the exceptional customer service. We will not hesitate to use Auto Excel for our needs and will highly recommend them to anyone!

Recommended by a trusted friend, I took my 2014 Jeep in for an oil change. I had bought it in August but had not had an inspection. Auto Excel found multiple problems, worked with me to prioritize, and financed what they could. When a part proved defective, they replaced it at no charge a week later. Great service, nice waiting room, thoughtful management.

This was my second experience, and I was once again very impressed with everyone. These are the words that come to mind: honesty, integrity, professionalism and just hometown friendly.

Generally speaking, the work they've done for me has been well-done. But, one of the things that brought me in this last time was the fact that the wheel weights had fallen off on the front end. Auto Excel put on those wheel weights, but apparently the area hadn't been cleaned properly in advance, so the adhesive didn't stick. This is not the first time that they have missed a detail like that (forgetting to put on a clip, glueing something in place that didn't stay in place, etc.) To their credit, they did not charge me for the repair of the wheel weights and have always made good when a detail like that has gone awry.

It was very good high quality people but the prices were higher than other local mechanic shops for example: I needed new ball joints for my vehicle they were charging 1200 the place down the road would do it for 800. But other than that they were honest people and I can sense unhonest mechanics these guys were honest and straightforward.

As always, getting a MINI cooper worked on is pricey. however, the work was spot on. Have had no problems with the car, its been around 2 weeks. The vehicle will be used for travel this May to Colorado. Its a 1200 mile trek one way and feel quite confident that the work requested was necessary and will ensure the safe travel to and from Colorado. Keep up the great work and we will definitely be back.....

Everyone that I spoke with was nice and very professional however I brought my car in because of an A/C issue. I was given an extensive evaluation and I couldn't afford to fix the A/C problem at that moment. I came to pick up my car and I was informed I owed a substantial diagnostic fee. I spoke with someone on the phone in length before I made the appt. and the fee wasn't mentioned. When I dropped off my car the fee was NEVER mentioned. I was told to fill out a contact form and sign a disclosure to work on the vehicle. It's my fault for not taking the time to read the entire document I signed but I was NEVER told of the diagnostic fee. I understand your time to look over the vehicle in detail deserves compensation. However had I known the fee I would have not gone thru with the diagnostic. I paid it, didn't make a big deal about it but I felt it wasn't handled the right way...

by - Verified Customer March 10, 2016

My last visit was my first visit. They got my van Thursday evening, started working on it late AM, probably around 10:30 or 11 AM. due to the complexity of the issue, it was not repaired and ready until 6:10 PM which means that the crew stayed and worked overtime to get the job done and have a happy customer. I was duly impressed with the 58 point check list applied to each vehicle. The staff was very professional and took adequate time to fully explain the mechanical issue, how it was repaired and other issue that may need attention in the near future. I have already recommended the Auto Excel shop to several of my friends. I feel that I received the best mechanical service available in the state of Kentucky.
