My first experience with this shop wasn't good, but this time around I was pleased with the manner in which I was treated and the communications on what was needed and what was done. Because of the convenient location I will likely return.

Was able to get in the next day and everything was completed well and on time

While having my 2000 Dodge Durango at Select Automotive everything was done and completed as expected. If I had a repair that needed to be done I would not hesitate to give the keys to This Garage, great work done and a good and respectful team. I give a 10/10 rating and Thank You Select Automotive for your service.

I've been going to Select Automotive for a little over a year now and I plan on continuing to go there for my car care needs. They seem to genuinely want your car to be maintained well at a price that is fair.

Their automotive wellness focus has me convinced that they care about my safety and they educate me on how to take care of my cars . I'm confident with my wife and daughters car being serviced at Select Automotive their safety and best interest are being addressed.

We were pleased. Price wise. We can get in and he's easy to deal with.

by - Verified Customer November 26, 2015

We have had work done with them before and the husband and wife are very nice people. The other day we couldn't afford some of the prices but as far as the service goes, it's good.

They do good work I feel that they are honest, they don't try to sell you anything you don't need and they seem like good people providing a good service.

I had an exhaust problem. He did the whole exhaust. I went to take the vehicle to get inspected and the mechanic said I had a slight exhaust leak. I had to take it back. The second time I went, it worked well. I was satisfied with the results when I went back. It was a little unsatisfactory because it was supposed to be fixed the first time.

I know that they will do quality work, and that the vehicle will be safe before it leaves the shop. The price is a little high, but I think that the peace of mind that the vehicle is going to work is worth it.

I was completely satisfied with the work, and I have recommended them before.

They were very helpful and informative. The one we went to, they squeezed us in.

by - Verified Customer August 27, 2015

I am apprehensive about service in general. They are high on my list, and I don't trust dealerships. It is depended on honesty and how honest I feel about their business practices.
