There is a person there named Sam Collins who gives excellent guidance. I just appreciate how they don't lie to you.

Verified CustomerApril 13, 2012

They have been taking care of our cars for about 20 years. As soon as they are off of warranty we take them to Caton.

Verified CustomerApril 12, 2012

I've been dealing with the auto clinic for years and I've always felt confident in their service for years. I totally trust them and their recommendations on immediate repairs. I will continue to go to them whenever I need auto repair and auto service. I'm totally confident in them. They have been more than just a service organization. We're friends, as well as them providing a service to me.

Replaced the Valve Cover Gasket that was supposed to take care of the exhaust feed back we were getting in the car. Well it didn't!! Also, did not realize that this repair was done just 11,000 miles ago at another repair shop before they did it. I have paid for this now twice and still have a problem. I guess they don't check their work.....

Verified CustomerFebruary 14, 2012

I have been driving for 46 years and dealt with many repair facilities over the years. I must say Caton's is the most professional one I have dealt with and all the people are just wonderful.

Rip off artists...charged me 1200 for a fuel pump that cost 150... Had it towed there, then researched, called back and said they are half way thru it and were waiting for overpriced part...they are very nice but experts in ripping people off...go to pep boys and save 90%

I was broke down on Rt 29 and had to get towed by AAA. They gave me the closest AAA affiliate in the area I chose which one and when they arrived in the mornig for work they called me. They checked out the whole car including my real issue and advised everything that was wrong. I gave them parts to fix things and it was ready for me by 5pm which allowed me to go to work. Awesome

Verified CustomerJanuary 13, 2012

I always feel that I can trust the people there. Especially Deb. who is always friendly and helpful. Actually, I feel the same way about all of the employees, I just added that because she's prettier than the males.

Headlight went out day after Thanksgiving. Needed a repair fast. Went to Caton Auto Clinic. The repair was done fast and professionally. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Most of all the price was cheaper than expected. I think I have found my new auto repair shop.
