RepairPal Scorecard

When Harry Franklin and Daniel Bowling opened Potomac Creek Automotive their goal was to be the place for trusted auto repairs at an honest price. Our review shows they have everything in place to meet those goals. Their team of technicians is led by Daniel who is ASE certified. Daniel and Charlie regularly attend up date training classes, apprentice Josh has begun his regular training and will soon begin testing for his ASE certificates. Potomac has all of the diagnostic tools and shop equipment we would expect to see in one of our Certified shops. Customer conveniences include performing state smog and safety inspection, a local shuttle service, and Saturday business hours. All work is confidently backed by a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty.

This shop is my newfound secret, since most people still seem not to know about it. I have had three cars repaired here, and have always gotten them returned sooner than expected, for even less than the estimate that I was originally quoted. They do not charge extra for good quality parts (I always verify the price online) and their labor costs are fair. I highly recommend Potomac Creek Automotive.

Excellent staff. Quick and painless repair.

Was recommended by ABC Tires - quite impressed, Steve explained about the various services of PCA - will plan on having more work done including routine maintenance. My first experience and visit with PCA and I was looking for an excellent, fairly priced independent expert.

I was in for state inspection and asked to have my brakes checked. The brake pads needed changed upon inspection.

Came in for a state inspection. The customer service was great as always and my car was taken care of in a timely manner. I will continue to bring my vehicles back.

Potomac Creek came through for us last minute when a work van broke down. They got us fixed and back up by the next morning. We really appreciated the quick repair and helpful information they provided.

Very happy with service. I requested an oil/filter change and power steering fluid replacement and if possible to have it ready by 12pm. My vehicle was ready prior to 12 pm.

by - Verified Customer February 14, 2013

If all shops were like Potomac and were as good, there would not be any use going to a dealer where they over charge and make you wait all day to get something done.

by February 07, 2013

The employees went above and beyond. They were extremely helpful and informative.

I can always rely on Potomac Creek Automotive to treat me fairly and honestly.

by - Verified Customer January 18, 2013

Very honest and fair. I recommend them to all our friends and family with no complaints. We had a situation where the repair was free just because they had to tweak something. I would only go to them.

by January 18, 2013

When my car suddenly broke down, they took me without an appointment and given the degree of service, gave me a break on the labor. I took my wifes car back the following week for a routine service and their price came in under the dealer service price! Work on both cars was great!

by - Verified Customer January 17, 2013

The staff is always friendly and accommodating. They also make suggestions and give me options on repairs without pressure .

by - Verified Customer January 11, 2013

The first time I've ever been to a mechanic and it didn't feel like I got ripped off. They explained stuff to me. They were very very fair. They definitely didn't tell me that I needed extra work when I didn't. I had gone to a shop right before I went to them who had $1600 of work that they said that I needed, which I didn't.

Fine service. I would recommend them to anyone.

by December 29, 2012

I am one of Potomac Creek's original customers ever since they opened over 20 years ago. Up until then, I had taken my car to many other repair shops and found most of them to be very dishonest. Because I am a woman, they would treat me like I didn't understand what they were saying and would recommend unneeded repairs. Potomac Creek has always been honest and respectful. If repairs are expensive, they will recommend which repairs are needed right away, and which ones can wait a little while. I've always been able to get my car in when needed. Customer service is great - all the staff is very friendly and professional. I'm so glad I found them!

They do very good work I have been going here for almost two years.
