Message from the Shop

We are able to make any repair on your car; however we are firm believers in auto maintenance rather than repairs. Preventative maintenance saves you money! Every time you visit our facility, we will raise the hood and check all the vital fluids. Our service team will then make maintenance recommendations based on the condition of these fluids, the odometer reading, and the time interval since your last service.

Your hybrid is not just any car. It's special - it's a hybrid. That doesn't mean that its maintenance and repair needs to be difficult or expensive, it just needs to be specifically tailored to your car. That's why Good Works Auto Repair brings you specialized hybrid auto services and The Hybrid Shop battery conditioning and regeneration - just one more way that we guarantee that your car, whether it's a hybrid or not, receives the care it needs to stay just as reliable and green as the day you bought it.

The price for brake replacement was much less than the dealership. Glen and staff were all professional and great to talk to.

Good quality fast work.

by - Verified Customer September 27, 2016

I think they were horribly over priced. Diagnostics were incorrect.

by - Verified Customer September 26, 2016

Friendly, Fast, Got the Job Done Correctly.... I've been to other places that I had to go back to multiple times for them to check their work. Last but not least they gave me the best price to get my car serviced then the other 6 places I've called. Thank You Good Works

Excellent Customer service. They have pickup and drop service from your home. They provided detailed analysis of issue with the car. They also classify immediate fixes to not so important ones which helps decision making easier.

I drive a 2013 Ford Fusion hybrid. I noticed my gas mileage had dropped by several mpg. I called and they said 'bring it in.' They found no issues and charged me $130. I was not told of this charge prior to making the appointment. I will not be giving any business to them for any reason. Very disappointed, as they came recommended by my previous mechanic, Accurate Automotive.

by - Verified Customer August 15, 2016

They are always nice and straight forward. They do the initial inspections in a timely manner so they can relay to you what needs to be done. Everything is addressed the same day and you don't walk away flat broke.

Problem of faulty alternator was repaired. Repair was done quickly and courteously. I thought the cost of repair was a little high.

Best service around!

by - Verified Customer June 15, 2013

I was very satisfied with the service I received.

by June 15, 2013

The shop does a wonderful job overall. I love the fact that they take appointments and there isn't much of a wait for a mechanic. I do wish the waiting area was a little more comfortable but that's a minor concern. They've recently, in the past six months, had a change over in the desk people and there appears to be some mis-communications happening.

by - Verified Customer June 06, 2013

Glen Hayward is a honest man and does his best to make things right if there is ever an issue.

I trust the people at Good Works. They are courteous and thorough.

by - Verified Customer June 04, 2013

We recently had our car tuned up for a long distance road trip. I asked the lady (an older, blonde haired lady) when I talked to her on the phone if the mechanics checked the battery because I was concerned that it was low and needed to be replaced. She said, "I am sure they did, but if not, I'll make sure they do." When I picked up the vehicle, I once again asked if the battery was checked. She responded, "I'm sure they checked it." Three days later, on the day we are set to leave for our road trip, our car won't start, and it needed a new battery. There is no way the battery could have drained that fast in 3 days, and I feel that the message was never relayed to the mechanics. We took our car to Sears for the battery, and it was replaced in 30 minutes. I don't think I will ever go back to GoodWorks after this experience. They were good in the past, but this was unacceptable.

Too expensive, not totally trustworthy

by - Verified Customer May 31, 2013

Goodworks has always provided excellent service for our vehicles. They are incredibly reliable and trustworthy (we've been going to them for over 7 years) and know that we can depend upon their service.

by - Verified Customer May 28, 2013

I trust them completely to do a good job and also to do only what is really needed. They provide accurate information and tell you what is important to have done and what is not so important. They don't try to get you to do work that is not necessary.

Excellent service. Seems like better communication is needed since the old front desk staff is gone.

by - Verified Customer May 17, 2013

The people at good works listen to your concerns and do not perform work or recommend work that your vehicle does not need. They are dependable and don't charge an arm a leg and the kitchen sink to repair your vehicle. The mechanics are trained and do excellent work!

by - Verified Customer May 14, 2013

They have always been very honest and I don't think they do any repairs that are not necessary.

Air conditioner repair - I was only offered a one week appointment until I could have my car air conditioner even examined. Phoenix temperatures were well above 115. Had to find another company to handle my repair.

by May 03, 2013

They are the best at what they do!
