It was very fair. They told me what it was and how much it would cost and there were no surprises. I was very happy.

Verified CustomerMay 31, 2012

I just replaced a battery in my car with a Wal-Mart battery. I had it towed to their shop and they replaced the battery for me and gave me the other battery back so I could get a refund. They are very friendly and very attentive. I didn't feel like I was just another job.

Verified CustomerMay 30, 2012

They are a good, honest company.

Verified CustomerMay 26, 2012

I'm extremely satisfied with the work and whatever they do for me. I have been satisfied and if there are any problems, he takes care of it so I have no problems. It's a good place to do business with. Very good.

Verified CustomerMay 05, 2012

They were very helpful and told me everything that needed to be done, showed me the parts, had a really good attitude and worked late to get me on the road.

Verified CustomerApril 13, 2012

I've always had good experiences there and when Gary was alive he had his shop next to my current place of employment. I used to walk over there just to give him admiration. His son in law Chris has done a good job running it.

Verified CustomerApril 10, 2012

They did what they said they would do. They found other things I needed to have fixed and set up an appointment for future repairs.

Verified CustomerApril 04, 2012

Gary is a real nice guy. He works at getting the job done. He wants to please. He works hard to break the barrier between a dealership and a repair shop. Gary will get the job done.

Best auto repair shop in OK! I would not take my Toyota to any other repair shop in Oklahoma! These guys are the best. Honest, trustworthy, fair pricing, they fix my vehicle right the FIRST time. They never try to rip me off and always explain what services are needed and why. I also take my Wife's Honda, my Son's Ford and my Dodge Diesel truck to them for service as well. Tried other shops, service not nearly as good as these guys. Try them, you won't be disappointed.

May 22, 2012

Highly recommend this shop for its excellant work and fair prices, not to mention courteous staff.
Take both my Ford and Lexus, find the mechanics very knowledgable and in contrast to my past experiences with not only a dealer but also another independant shop , repairs are done correctly and never have to return for same problem.
Find prices fair and staff always courteous, going above and beyond with my repairs.

December 08, 2009

We are a parts and service company and take all of our vehicles that need repaired to Gary Johnston Auto. They have great customer service and quality is of the utmost concern.

December 08, 2009

I take my Prius and Saturn in for service and always have a good experience. The repairs are always done right and the mechanics are nice to deal with if ever I needed to ask questions. Courteous service writers are polite and concerned about the care of both of my vehicles. I would recommend this shop I doubt you would be disappointed.
