May 05, 2014

I was satisfied with the service, I thought he was expensive, but I thought he did a good job.

Verified CustomerApril 23, 2014

Every time I go there, they take care of everything I needed on a car the 64 Thunderbird Classic, definitely a ten, I would recommend them any day. Terel is very honest and I have faith in him, and for me to say that for an auto shop, that says a lot. He knows so much, his knowledge is phenomenal, and he is great. I am particular.

Verified CustomerApril 22, 2014

I have been going to them for 19 years. They are always good, sometimes the prices can be a little high but I don't go anywhere else.

Number one they did a good job, however it was inconvenient for me. I had to wait too long. They helped me in a bind and I appreciate that.

Verified CustomerMarch 11, 2014

He doesn't second guess, and if it needs to be done, I know it needs to be done, and it will be done right at a fair price. I will not take my car anywhere else, he will be the one. I don't need to do comparison shopping and I will get the best price and the best care, best deal.

March 08, 2014

The first time I went there, the owner a older man, very thorough and accurate, everything went well on the first visit. Then I went again, I saw the other employees there, I had to pull out information out of them on the vehicle, I had to pull teeth to get information out of them. We had to go back another time, and it was inconvenient.

Verified CustomerMarch 07, 2014

I like the quality of service and efficient work. Locality is good, nice and close. Seem like nice guys, they're personable.

Verified CustomerMarch 06, 2014

It took longer than I thought but I was happy with the work. I wouldn't give anyone a 10 rating.

Verified CustomerMarch 05, 2014

I had a rear seal put in, and my fluid was low and the transmission was slipping, it was low on fluid after they serviced it, they didn't put enough transmission fluid in it. They got it done in one day, everything else was fine.

Verified CustomerMarch 04, 2014

They tried to add on additional services. They told me another part was needed which would cost about 2500.00. The part I replaced was 1800.00.

Verified CustomerMarch 02, 2014

Good expertise, knowledgeable of the repair.

Verified CustomerMarch 02, 2014

I have known the man for several years. He is honest, fair in price, always done a good job. He is honest and reasonable.

Very nice Mechanics work at Emerson Street Automotive who go above and beyond to help solve your car issues. I had a check engine light issue on a car I just bought. I was told it was an Oxygen Sensor issue by the Seller. Lee did a diagnosis and popped the lid. He knew exactly what was wrong. Oil had been leaking from a faulty oil cap and had fouled up the plugs. He ordered a new cap and cleaned up the plug wires. I left the shop and the light came back on after 10 miles away so I came back. It was another plug misfiring this time. Further diagnosis found oil had gotten into the distributor and rather than replace it the previous owner did a quick fix to cover it up long enough to sell the car so another mechanic cleaned the distributor cap and recommended I get a new distributor. I drove away and this time the light came back on again after an even shorter distance. Lee did a another diagnosis and found it was misfiring again so he re-cleaned the plug wires. Even though we all figured it was going to come back on again because I needed a new part the car did run better when I went home. The guys did everything they could on their end to help me and could have done more if my budget allowed but I went home with more knowledge and a better running car so it was not a wasted trip. Even though I came back twice they did not charge me and a lot of other shops might have.

I would recommend this shop. I was very satisfied with the work done on my car. They were very thorough and took their time and every penny was worth it. Five stars!

January 27, 2014

Excellent service, have taken the car there a few times.

November 25, 2013

my transmission was shifting with a thud. Emerson Automotive diagnosed the problem and offered three repair options, explained the pros and cons of each, actually recommending
the least expensive.
