Every time we have had a problem, it has been fixed promptly and correctly.

Verified CustomerJuly 30, 2015

Honest. Friendly. Good services. Good work and a complimentary shuttle to and from work. Also 0% financing for 12 months was super helpful.

Verified CustomerJuly 30, 2015

The guys at The Auto Shop have never let me down. They'll let me know what needs to be done and in what order of importance. I appreciate their sensitivity to my financial circumstance, whatever it may be when I walk in the door.

I've been a customer of the Auto Shop for about 10 years, but I've now given up on them. After a recent major repair, I discovered that my A/C had stopped working. After agreeing to fix the A/C for the cost of parts, the shop charged me about double the going rate for the parts. Acted like they were doing me a big favor for charging me "only" $865 for the compressor kit. When I went to check the oil a couple of days later, I saw that they had left the battery completely unsecured. They left off the bolt that holds the battery in place and it was just rattling around under the hood.

Verified CustomerJuly 24, 2015

I've use The Auto Shop for close to 30 years and they have always done me right.

The people are terrific! They know their stuff, provide excellent service, and are honest as the day is long. I take my Ford there for service even though it is still under warranty! Much better service than at the dealership!

Mickey and his staff are always very helpful, professional and courteous. There have even been 2 occasions that I have brought my vehicle in and have been advised by Mickey that it should be covered by warranty. That's one of the reasons I keep coming back and always recommend them.

They know what they are doing. They are polite and kind. Service is amazing and just worth every dollar. I worried about finding a shop that would do good work when I first moved down here. Now, I will not take my car any where else.

Was told that this shop specalizes in Saturn. I called for an estimate before taking my car in about 3 days later. Was shocked by cheerful person that greeted me at the door and when I give him my name, he remembered our radiator conversation and said that was a phone estimate, If anything changes while doing the repair, he'd call me first. Well, 2 hours later he did call (here we go right?) BUT ...... He said no other repairs are necessary, it would be done by 4pm and the final cost was less than the original estimate. I was blown away, didn't think that ever happened? They were right in the middle of what Pay Pal online estimated the repair to cost. THANK YOU Pay Pal and The Phoenix Auto Shop for honest work well done!

I took my car to this shop because I thuoght I had a problem. The service light blinked on and off. The owner explained that this was a self-diagnostic and the plugged it in to the computer and then said, "go home, there is nothing wrong." They did not laugh at me and they charged me nothing. I WILL be taking my car there when I need work.

March 12, 2009

I've been a customer of The Auto Shop for years, and I've taken a variety of vehicles to them for repair.

They have always been helpful even when I didn't bring a vehicle in. I had a vehicle into a dealership for a Recall repair. The dealer wanted to do more work, "as long as they were in there". I called the Auto Shop, and they listened and recommended that I let the dealer do that additional work, because it made sense, it would be cheaper for me because the dealer already had the engine torn apart. That's service!

I highly recommend The Auto Shop for your auto care needs.
