I have been using Parker Automotive for 8 years and they are very fair and very honest about what repairs are needed. They are very timely with the repairs. He has been very understanding when I have had a repair done and wasn't able to pay him for a day or two.

by - Verified Customer March 20, 2014

He is a honest man. He is a Christian.

by - Verified Customer March 19, 2014

They are easy to deal with, they are reasonable in price, and they do a very good job. They're not more expensive than other automotive shops, and they are much better than dealer shops. You deal directly with the owner, and he listens to your concerns, and takes them into consideration. He tells you what needs to be taken care of right away and what doesn't.

by - Verified Customer March 05, 2014

They gave me an estimate and they were very friendly. It was not outrageous and they fixed things in a timely manner to my satisfaction.

They are very kind, courteous and professional. They do good work.

by - Verified Customer January 30, 2014

My husband passed away recently and Parker Automotive was helpful. When I deal with them they give me the options and recommendations but they don't talk down to me. I am a woman and I have had mechanics look down on me like I am stupid and Parker Automotive does not do that.

by - Verified Customer January 15, 2014

Of the services he has done on my car, he did them right and I have no problems. I could not go anywhere else anyways. I would have had to take my car all the way to Indiana or St. Louis, so I was very satisfied with what he did to it.

by - Verified Customer January 04, 2014

I am satisfied with the work they did.

by - Verified Customer December 19, 2013

They are very knowledgeable and they check over your automobile and if there is anything wrong they will let you know. They are very capable of repairing anything on your automobile. They are very honest.

They do good work. They do thorough work. I don't live close to them but our car broke down. I would not necessarily go around recommending them because I don't live near them.

by - Verified Customer November 21, 2013

He didn't mislead me or anything, he explained what the situation was and what I needed. He treated me fairly.

by November 20, 2013

They were very good. He is nice and a Christian man. He found the problem immediately. He was very good.
