Very professional and knowledgeable shop. Replaced the automatic transmission. Worked great out of the shop all the way home. Noticed that there is a problem shifting into overdrive when the transmission isn't warmed up. Goes away after it warms up. Will be calling on this glitch later in the month if it continues. Expect to be back in the Mesa area toward the end of March.

Nice people, thank you!

by - Verified Customer December 22, 2016

After many years of being taken advantage of, had work done that didn't need done or repairs that were not done right I finally am fortunate to find a truly reputable shop with experienced and knowledgeable staff and mechanics. They are not cheap but then they deserve to be paid for what they know and what they are able to do. I hope I never have to go to any other shop and that they will always be there for me. Thank you for taking care of my vehicle. I feel safe knowing my vehicle is being taken care of.

Car had a vibration. They installed new front tires/balanced PLUS:aligned rear wheels. Problem solved!

The best thing I feel that I can say is that they stand behind their work. There is no pressure to get work done.

by - Verified Customer December 04, 2016

Worked with Charlie, we talked about the concerns. He called after courtesy check and we discussed what to fix and completed on time.

Trustworthy advise and repairs when needed.

by - Verified Customer November 10, 2016

I have always been very satisfied with the work and professional conduct. Never pressured but accommodated timely and courteously.

by - Verified Customer November 09, 2016

Overall, my experience was very positive. Even the suggestion to have the timing belt replaced was perfect in timing, but when the price jumped because I have a larger engine, some of the numbers in the quote made sense, but others didn't. So I completed the work with another tech working out of his home.

by - Verified Customer November 08, 2016

We were pleased with the service and work done on our car. We will return, we thank Mark Salem for referring Thompson's to us. And thank you Thompson's Auto Repair for your integrity.

by - Verified Customer November 08, 2016

I have no way of knowing if the price was fair or if the work was performed properly, but they seem to care about the customer and that's a good thing.

My vehicle is a 95 Dodge Dakota 1/2 T P/U 4X4, and some people try to convince me that it is "over the hill", so to speak, and not an appropriate means of transportation for a single female senior citizen. Thanks to Thompson's Auto Repair, I plan to have my trusty little X-Tra Cab pickup to take me camping, fishing, hiking, etc. for many more years to come. Always receive very good service, and all the staff is extremely helpful.
