Magnum Automotive fixed my car in timely manner. Explained my options on repairs and parts. Always a good experience. Good people and great work

by - Verified Customer March 18, 2018

This is the most fair and competent car repair shop. I do not have to worry that I will be overcharged or that unnecessary repairs will be done. Magnum is very trustworthy.

Magnum automotive is a great shop, with great customer service.

by - Verified Customer April 06, 2017

We have been bringing our cars to Magnum for a few years now, and we are very satisfied. They are honest, hard-working, attentive, and fair. I used to go to a fancier place, but I would never go back, as long as Magnum is around. I am personally aware of the moral integrity of the owner, Tim, and would recommend him to anyone.

by - Verified Customer November 15, 2016

I've been going to Tim since I moved to the area. He has fixed some challenging problems with my car and has also worked on my husband's car. He is very concerned about getting everything fixed the first time. He knows his customers are looking for a fair price and he provides that. He is honest and if I'm in trouble with my car I know I can count on him.

by - Verified Customer September 12, 2016

Quick turn around and nice work.

by August 02, 2016

Trust worth and knowledgeable

by - Verified Customer June 29, 2016

Tim is the most honest mechanic I have ever met. He does excellent work; I would never go anywhere else to have my car serviced.

by - Verified Customer March 21, 2016

They always do the best they can and they are very knowledgeable. They don't overcharge and they minimize customer trouble. In other words, they look out for customers.

by March 20, 2016

When I got there, I asked for service and I got service right away. Good customer service, accurate diagnostic.

by - Verified Customer March 09, 2016

They provide really great service. I was in a situation where I was stuck and he went out of his way to make sure I got service properly and quickly. He made sure I was taken care of quickly. Good service.

by - Verified Customer March 01, 2016

It is pretty good work and reasonable prices. They work fast and they do not cheat.

by - Verified Customer February 24, 2016

I know Tim, he has worked on vehicles for my uncle. He is a good mechanic. He is a thorough mechanic.

by - Verified Customer February 04, 2016

Really honest, cheap, and he does a really good job.

by - Verified Customer January 22, 2016

I liked his work. I think he does a fair deal. I think he has a fair price. I think he is honest.

by - Verified Customer January 22, 2016

They do good work in a good time frame that is cost effective.

by - Verified Customer January 21, 2016

He is trustworthy. He does good work.

by January 12, 2016

He has always been very good to us. He is a great mechanic.

by January 01, 2016

He knows what he is doing. He is on time and is very honest, reasonable, and he has got a nice waiting room with coffee and TV. You don't get that with other places.

by January 01, 2016

Tim is very conscientious and that is good. The schedule is a little bit difficult because he sometimes gets overwhelmed. The positive is that Tim does good work and the negative is that if one of his helpers does the work it may not be done as well. Sometimes the schedule and the stuff that should take a day and takes three or four.

by - Verified Customer December 28, 2015

I had issues with having to go back.

by - Verified Customer December 27, 2015

The work was timely, reasonable, and efficient.

by - Verified Customer December 21, 2015

Tim at Magnum Automotive always follows through with his work. His work is extremely good.

by - Verified Customer December 16, 2015

He is thorough, fair, and reasonably priced and he does the job the right way the first time. He is probably the best mechanic I have ever been to. It is close to my house and reasonable prices.

by - Verified Customer December 07, 2015

His pricing is at least as good as any other shop I've ever been to, maybe a little lower and he has lowered it down for me little at times when I couldn't afford it. I can trust him to find out what is wrong and fix it and not charge me for auto repairs that aren't needed.

by - Verified Customer December 04, 2015

Just good service and he was friendly. The price is reasonable.

by - Verified Customer November 17, 2015

I like the customer service he provided to me as well as other individuals. He explains before he does the work. If you chose not to do additional services he has no problem removing your car from the shop. He explains in details what is done to the car before he does it.

by - Verified Customer November 01, 2015

They are pretty good about their work and they use good quality auto parts and good quality stuff. They usually, most likely, service it on the same day.

by - Verified Customer October 22, 2015

Good customer service. Very good prices. Very honest. Very fair. Very polite and I am satisfied.

by - Verified Customer October 15, 2015

I like the work the do, the quality, and the service was very satisfactory. I have no complaints whatsoever.

by - Verified Customer October 01, 2015

I believe I was working directly with the owner. He was very direct but very helpful. Whenever he gave me a certain time period to have the vehicle serviced, it happened and I felt that this was very helpful throughout the whole process. Close by to where my house is. Location was convenient. It didn't take too long and he always reached out whenever he had questions.

by - Verified Customer September 25, 2015

I like the service, the pricing, and the turnaround time of the service. Everything. You just feel comfortable unlike some other mechanic shops.

by - Verified Customer September 25, 2015

The service is personal. They're very responsive. It is very good work.
