Wonderful experience - i'll be taking my car to Scott's from now on. They took the time to explain what was wrong and what needed to be done to fix it. Very happy customer!

I was referred by my insurance company because I live hundreds of miles away. The initial estimate was high for the service and lowered to a reasonable price which I appreciated. However, the first estimate included a diagnostic check fee and after the work was performed the car did not work. So we had to have another procedure performed that took the cost of the fix well over the original estimate. Nice people running the shop, disappointed that they did not take financial ownership in their misdiagnosis and original attempt at a fix. Paid double the cost for a minor repair.

My experience was terrible. I went in for them to put it on the machine to diagnose what was wrong with it. I did not ask for them to do any work and when I took it somewhere else they told me I did not need an alternator. The mechanic there told me that they had to put an alternator on it before they could put it on the machine to diagnose it. I did not have a problem with my alternator at all.

The people were very nice and helpful explained everything in a manner I could understand I would definitely be visiting again if I have any car issues.

I went in recently for both a service visit and brake repair work. The service was overlooked, so I planned additional time off work to come in a week later. I have been happy with the service until this occurred. I m not sure I want to go back for any further service. I am very disappointed...I thought I'd found a reputable shop that didn't try to gouge me and was concerned for my safety.

Top notch service. In and out quick

by - Verified Customer September 24, 2017

I called before coming in to get a quote on putting a new starter in my truck. I was told it would be about $450. After calling a few other mechanics and asking about the same thing, I chose to take it to Scott's because it was the best quote and someone had recommended it to me. After running a diagnostic test I was told the cost would be nearly double what I was initially told. I feel like that first quote was irresponsibly low and I'd rather take it somewhere else. Because I felt like I was being taken advantage of, I asked the owner if there was any way he could give me a discount on the diagnostic test. Without any further prodding, he stood up from his chair and proceeded to raise his voice and lecture me on how this business works and how his people need to get paid. I ended up paying full price.

So all in all, I will not be coming back to Scott's. I'm sure your mechanics do a great job, but I felt like that quote was irresponsible, the owner really didn't care, and was eager to tell me how little he cared.

A very good shop

I went to Scott's Auto Repair a couple of weeks ago. These guys are very knowledgeable and professional and do not push anything on you. I like the fact that they do take classes and are updated on all aspects of the automotive industry. Very pleasant and don't push you for other repairs. They explain the work that they done on your vehicle and give recommendations. Very happy with them. I will return if I have any issues with my vehicle!

Scott and Freddie are great, do good work, and always explain everything to me so I understand what work needs to be performed and why. They do not try to take advantage of my lack of car knowledge and they go out of their way to accommodate me and work quickly so I don't have to wait long.

by - Verified Customer August 21, 2017

Thrilled we found Scott, who fixed a separated tire on my daughter's car. Honest and fair. He will definitely handle all future repairs.

I had my transmission fluid changed, and I was concerned that one of the bolts was stuck, and was concerned I might snap it. Scott had the right tools and changed everything including the stuck bolt. I saw him do everything. I really appreciated being to see what was done, that was well worth it the cost. Worth the money!
