The prices that Bud quoted us were exorbitantly high, so we got a 2nd opinion from another local repair shop. The other mechanic told us that two of the fixes recommended by Bud were necessary were NOT, and the other mechanic's prices were nearly half that of Bud's.

May 15, 2015

They are very nice. They fix my car well, they are honest and they get the work done quickly. They are available on Saturdays, they are fair people that charge fair prices.

Verified CustomerMay 14, 2015

I like everything about them and there isn't anything I can think of them needing to change.

Verified CustomerApril 30, 2015

They are very good with customer service. They also communicate your options regarding repair and maintenance very well.

April 27, 2015

They did a good service on my cars and truck. It's just a good service. They're nice people. They always treat me nice.

April 22, 2015

8 is pretty high in my opinion. When I bring in my truck it is about 3 or 4 days that they have it, not a 2 to 3 day turn around.

April 16, 2015

I trust them. They have done me well price wise. They haven't ripped me off or lied to me. They have answered all of my questions and have done good work.

The work they do and the way they do it. They are very efficient. When I bring my car in they tell me if they find something else. They are very thorough. The quality of the work is fantastic. I have never had a problem with anything that they have done for me.

Verified CustomerMarch 01, 2015

I am a single person and it is very important to me to have people I can trust when I have car problems. At Bud Adams they are honest and they don't try to talk you into something that isn't necessary. That means a lot to me. People I can believe in.

Verified CustomerFebruary 25, 2015

I have been taking my cars there for the last few years and I am very satisfied with his work. My cars are running. He just seems to work with us. He sent of the ladies in the office to get the carseat for us. He does little things for us. He also has enterprise rentals available.
