"Well, the work that they did for me was recommended by another shop. The work was very good, they told me what it would cost before hand, and didn't charge me more than what they said." Cordell - Verified Customer
"They're fast, they're knowledgeable, and they do a good job for a right price." Jack - Verified Customer
"The place that I take the auto demonstrates true professionalism, openness, honesty, in their communication. A real desire to do what is needed, in the most expedient manner, but also with an eye for economics. They have reasonable costs. They are a pleasure to be with. That's why SAF-T Auto is the best, and why I have been going there for twenty years." Robert - Verified Customer

RepairPal's Assesment
Our assessment of the SAF-T Auto Center in Wallingford revealed an excellent technician and service adviser team. Two of the three have been working together for 14 years and all are ASE certified! Their recent addition of an apprentice, ready to learn from this experienced duo, shows a noteworthy commitment to the long term stability of this shop. We found they have the tooling and specialized diagnostic equipment we would expect to find at one of our Certified shops. Convenience is also a priority of this shop. They offer a local shuttle service, or should you decide to wait while your vehicle is being serviced, WiFi is available in their comfortable waiting area.

RepairPal's Assesment
Happy’s Garage in Naugatuck has a name to live up to and based on everything we have heard from their customers, they do. When we certify an automotive repair shop we look at many aspects of the business but two big areas we look at are the progression of the business and whether their existing customers are satisfied. Well, we would like to report great results in both of these areas! In the last 12 months alone they have attended advanced technical training, achieved ASE certification, and are signed up to complete even more training very soon. Add to this the excellent customer feedback and you have a great quality shop that is getting better every day and they will provide the “Happy” experience you deserve.
