I came in for a NC state inspection and Mike was amazing. He completed my inspection same day, in a very short amount of time. Although I have an independent specialty mechanic (my brand is no longer being produced), I would definitely do business with Southend Auto Exchange again. Whether that be buying a car, state inspections, or renting a moving truck. Thank you for a great experience.

by - Verified Customer November 09, 2016

I received prompt, high quality and friendly service. Thank you. I would return again and highly recommend Southend Auto Exchange.

My this visit was the first visit to the shop and it was a great experience. I went to get my Merc AC fix after reading a lot of good reviews from google and they were all true, really happy with the service and overall experience.

They do a good job. They are experienced, they did everything that needed done on time. They did not do anything that was unnecessary.

by - Verified Customer April 15, 2016

I had my oil changed there and they are very professional. They did the work we asked them to do and did not try to sell us anything more than we asked them for. The price is reasonable. They get the work done when they say that they will.

These guys are great. Mike really takes the time to actually help and not just throw parts on the car without truly diagnosing the issue.

That Acura has motors that move the column in and out. Easiest thing to check would be the fuses for the column adjustment. If still not working and if your in the Charlotte area give me a Call @ 7043341331 and we could take a look at it for you.

The transmissions in that model Odyssey were notorious for failure. You need to first drain the transmission fluid through a paint strainer if you notice metal and or a burnt smell in the fluid you will need to replace and/or have the transmission rebuilt. If you would like my shop to take a look, give me a call 7043341331
This occurs mostly at speeds over 75 mph.
Majority of the time it is the balance of the tires. Feel free to give me a call and we could take a look at it 7043341331
I was installing alpine navigation stereo....
Part of the climate control goes through the factory radio. When you removed the radio to install the Navigation you broke the connection. the connections for the radio are at the rear of the radio and on the front of the radio there are connections that goto the faceplate that has the climate control. In order for the ac controls to function you would have to reinstall the factory radio.
