When we review an applicant for our Certified Shop Network the most important factor in our decision is their employees. We look for a group of experienced and trained personnel and Buddy's has more than met this expectation. Their techs have a combined 117 years of experience and have received a ton of training over the years, which includes some at the local dealerships. Buddy's Auto offers an excellent nationwide 3 year/36,000 mile warranty on transmission replacements and has been serving the Hartford Community since 1977. We like them and hope you do too.

Customer Reviews

Verified CustomerFebruary 07, 2013

They're good people and honest. They've treated me alright over the years.

Verified CustomerFebruary 05, 2013

He's fair and he gets his work done when he says he will.

Verified CustomerFebruary 04, 2013

I would just say highly recommended, fair, honest, and trustworthy.

Verified CustomerFebruary 01, 2013

I've been a customer at Buddy's for approximately ten years and my experience has been amazing. They have been extremely helpful. They have never recommended anything to do that was unnecessary. They have always told me, upfront, what needed to be done. And they are extremely fair. They are wonderful people and I would recommend them to anyone. They are absolutely amazing. Their price is competitive and fair and in a lot of cases the prices are just great. They have been extremely helpful to me. I live about 45 miles from that shop. I used to live about a half of a mile away, but now even 45 miles away, I still go back there to have work done on my car. That is how satisfied I am with them. As I said they are extremely helpful, when I lived at my old house, if something was wrong with my car they would come pick me up so that I wouldn't have to walk to the shop. They just go out of their way to be wonderful and helpful. I am just ecstatic and pleased with them.

Verified CustomerFebruary 01, 2013

I'm very satisfied. I've been going through them for many years. Every time I walk in they make themselves available, if not they have me in the next day. They're friendly, they're courteous, and they're punctual. I'm very happy with them.

March 09, 2015

I did some research as I was looking for a reasonable Car shop that wasn't expensive in repairs and reasonable and this Shop had a lot of great reviews..So I took a change based on the reviews and I was very pleased I did..The staff were very nice and understanding, they listen to you with your car problem, they don't rush you and most in important they don't make you feel dumb like some shops treat women. They were there to assist me in any question I had in regards to my car. Most in important their prices where acceptable and fair where you don't come out leaving your life savings as opposed to taking it directly to the Dealership .. Coming from a BMW car owner Mother of two this is very important to me good prices and good services..
