Excellent quality repair service with a team of very knowledgeable and honest professionals

by - Verified Customer June 07, 2017

I like the idea of sending the inspection result in email. It would be great if you can prioritize the repair items and attach the price with each.

by - Verified Customer June 01, 2017

I feel they do great work and I am comfortable leaving my vehicle at shop.

They always do a great job making sure that I am up to date on all of my necessary maintenance. I drive my car a ton and rely on it heavily and I know I can count on them to keep it running for me.

The problem was not fix. The transmission was slipping before and two days after. An alternator was replaced. It did not solve the problem

Great Customer experience. Maintenance performed on time and at the price quoted. In one example, Bob, Charlotte & Tom save me a $100 with a not necessary alignment for my new tire installation. Overall Wonderful experience.

These people make me feel like I'm not getting taken advantage of like every shop I've been to. They legitimately care about you and your vehicle. My car is my baby and they treat it as such.

by - Verified Customer February 12, 2017

I am always pleased with the service at A&B. Bob is a great guy, terrific mechanic and one of the most honest men I've ever had the pleasure to meet. I not only recommend the shop, I think anyone who doesn't is probably paying more than it's worth.

Son's radiator replaced by A&B with a new one, but then leaked a few months later. Bob at A&B made good by removing and replacing the faulty (replacement) radiator with another new one. A&B stands behind the parts it uses and its workmanship.

The work was done quickly, which I liked. But it was done incorrectly, which resulted in blue smoke coming out of my muffler, so I ended up taking the car back to the shop the following day, which made me late for work. Charlotte was nice about my issue and went above and beyond to help, but the auto mechanics were very rude when I encountered them, and did not even apologize for inconveniencing me. As a result, I will not return, nor recommend their work to anyone I know.

I have had a long rep-or with shop owner Bob, who is an exceptionally nice gentleman, and very honest. However, since he hired an assistant, he has been a lot less flexible. For instance, as a reward for my loyal patronage, he sent me a $50 gift card for the next car repair. The girl would not take it toward a repair totaling about $500.00. This turned me off a bit, as the old shop would have honored this without blinking.

by - Verified Customer October 19, 2016

I have utilized the shop's services for eight years in service of five different vehicles and never been dissatisfied with the service or repairs.

He's honest, if you need something repaired, he lets you know ahead of time. And if I need something done, he lets me make the decision - yes or no - to repair it. I recommend them highly to anyone because he's fair and he does not push anything on you, that's why I've been going for years. His prices are fair and that's why I recommend him highly.

My husband introduced me to A & B Automotive about sixteen years ago. Now he is gone, but Bob and the staff at A & B Automotive are there for me and my Chevy trailblazer. All my many questions are always answered, service is excellent. A & B is the place for me. Thank you Bob!

Free wifi, TV and within walking distance of a resturant for persons who would wait rather then drop off.

by - Verified Customer August 31, 2012

They're always pleasant and everything is ready on time and I can see a difference that they have worked hard on my car. I wouldn't think of going any other place. Bob, the owner, he's a very nice man. He is a very honest man. I got a call from him asking if I was satisfied and I think that's very rare to get that. There's nothing bad I could say.

When you ask their opinion, they give you their opinions and it's not based on what will benefit their business. They will tell if it's worth fixing or if it's something you should even put money into.

Had a break job done on my Thunderbird and had to call the factory because the disk broke. They called the factory and did the whole job for free. That took a special brake lining and they didn't know it - they called the factory and got the special break lining and I was really satisfied. I been there a few times and I always been satisfied and I have recommended them several times. I am very pleased with their service and I always take my car back there.

The owner personally makes sure your vehicle is in proper working order before you leave. I have an older vehicle, 12 years old, and I have been having it serviced at A&B for ten of those years. My car runs amazing. I highly recommend A&B Automotive. The Service is friendly, fast, and the prices are fair.

Very friendly, very knowledgeable. Fair prices, don't fix something until it needs it. I've been going for a long, long time and have never had a problem - I've been going to them for 32 years. Overall I'm very satisfied and have recommended them multiple times.

I've been going to him for fifteen years and he's never treated me badly. I've always had good service from him. He tells you everything up-front and he'll work with you - telling you what can wait. He's always been very fair.
