I have been coming to High Octane for the last 30 years with 6-8 cars. They do excellent work, prices are fair and competitive and the parts they use are of high quality. Charles the owner is extremely knowledgeable in automotive troubleshooting and repair and therefore his shop has become an approved AAA shop.

Hi Octane has always performed maintenance and repair work to my satisfaction.
Verified Customer
They were very cooperative. They came and got me and took me back.
Verified Customer
I was in there telling the owner that I was concerned that my car was coming up on 10 years old and I was getting rid of it and getting a new one. He talked me out of it and let me when he thought I needed one. I think he is honest which is a rare commodity for that industry. Most mechanics on a 1-10 scale are a 3. They overcharge you and aren't straightforward. I think they are one of two mechanics that I've used since the 1980''s. You couldn't drag me out of there.

Thank you David for your kind words. I have clients ask a lot about when to get rid of a vehicle and each person's circumstances are different. We will always be straight forward and give to best recommendation as we can. New vehicles are a major expense most people would like to avoid. When repairs outlay the benefits we will let our clients know.


Verified Customer
Very friendly. Easy to work with. Gave me multiple places for parts. I enjoyed the overall experience with them.
Verified Customer
Excellent. They do a good job in checking over the car and making sure it does not need anything else.
