Our assessment of the SAF-T Auto Center in Wallingford revealed an excellent technician and service adviser team. Two of the three have been working together for 14 years and all are ASE certified! Their recent addition of an apprentice, ready to learn from this experienced duo, shows a noteworthy commitment to the long term stability of this shop. We found they have the tooling and specialized diagnostic equipment we would expect to find at one of our Certified shops. Convenience is also a priority of this shop. They offer a local shuttle service, or should you decide to wait while your vehicle is being serviced, WiFi is available in their comfortable waiting area.

December 30, 2013

We've used SAF-T Auto for a number of years, they seem to be reasonable, honest and fair priced.

December 26, 2013

They treat me very well. They do great work, they really know cars. The customer service is good.

Verified CustomerDecember 20, 2013

Well, the work that they did for me was recommended by another shop. The work was very good, they told me what it would cost before hand, and didn't charge me more than what they said.

December 11, 2013

I received reliable service there, they're pretty honest about what they're doing there.

December 10, 2013

They do a good job. They do what they're supposed to do, and tell you what needs to be done, and they're usually correct.

Verified CustomerDecember 04, 2013

They're fast, they're knowledgeable, and they do a good job for a right price.

Verified CustomerAugust 13, 2012

The place that I take the auto demonstrates true professionalism, openness, honesty, in their communication. A real desire to do what is needed, in the most expedient manner, but also with an eye for economics. They have reasonable costs. They are a pleasure to be with. That's why SAF-T Auto is the best, and why I have been going there for twenty years.

Verified CustomerAugust 13, 2012

They are very accommodating as far as scheduling you quickly.

Verified CustomerAugust 10, 2012

I went in without an appointment, and I went in and got an appointment, I told them I needed it done in an hour and a half, they got it done in an hour and a half. I would recommend them to anybody.

Verified CustomerAugust 03, 2012

I trust them.

Verified CustomerJuly 31, 2012

They were able to figure out what was wrong with the truck, they were able to fix it, that was good. But it was something I could fix myself.

Verified CustomerJuly 30, 2012

It was just a good experience overall at every time.

I just had my Grand Prix to be fixed, I had several issues all of which were discussed with the friendly staff. They were honest and told me what needed done and what DID NOT NEED done unlike the local Firestone and Midas. Midas wanted me to spend over 1,000$, Firestone like 600... I spent only 346$ at SAF-T!
