Close to home auto service. Impeccable mechanics, timely work, flexible options, friendly staff, education on vehicle issues provided. Outstanding Service!

by - Verified Customer March 07, 2017

Got an oil change and tire rotation. After a couple days of her complaining that the engine sounded louder and it smelled bad I popped the hood to find that the oil cap on the valve cover was missing. I was able to locate the cap in the engine compartment but unsure how much dirt got in or oil got out. The car was also still in the bay 2 hours after they called and said it was ready.

I feel I paid for unnecessary work. Two weeks after work was completed on my car, I had to have the motor replaced. The garage that completed the work was surprised that someone had not noticed the problem prior. I paid almost 2K for work that I am not sure was actually completed.

by - Verified Customer January 24, 2017

Springdale in Prospect has always been very fair and accommodating. Couldn't ask for a nicer bunch of guys to work with. Brian is my go to guy. He always works me in and even gives me a ride home if I need it.

Dependable and accommodating.

by - Verified Customer December 06, 2016

The guys always are polite, and explain about any needed repairs. Of course I always ask, so that may be why.

The only problem I have ever had was with a previous service, this last September. My car was acting totally bizarre, and it was the alternator. They were ready to charge me $500+ for the repairs when I remembered I had had the alternator replaced the year before. Turns out is was totally covered, both parts and labor. It just seemed to me that someone should have noticed in my car's service history that it was just recently replaced. I know they don't have the time to look over everything in a car's history, but that really bugged me.

The staff at Springdale Automotive is great! They have always gone out of their way to make sure I am taken care of. They have always been honest, prompt, dependable, and have the best warranty i have found in any automotive repair shop. No shop will touch any of my vehicles except for them.

by - Verified Customer January 12, 2015

I have always received excellent response to my problems and I especially like Scotty, very through. However I was a bit surprised that I was charged 31.00 for a tail lamp since I am and have been a very loyal customer for several years.

by - Verified Customer January 01, 2015

They went above and beyond to fix my car and it was very cost effective. I went to Sam Swope first and they didn't get it right and it cost me about twice as much not to have it fixed. So thank you Springdale!

by - Verified Customer November 19, 2014

My first visit was a few months ago. I am a new resident of Kentucky looking for a reliable and fair automotive shop to keep my car running well. I had several key points about my car to be addressed. I really did not get any feed back. I was there for a routine oil change and at that time let my cars needs be known. No one from this shop got back to me with estimates as they said they would.

by - Verified Customer November 07, 2014

Everyone was extremely friendly and fit us in on very short notice.

by - Verified Customer November 02, 2014

I like the quality of work and they kept me well informed during the entire process.
