I am extremely pleased with the workmanship, professionalism, and value of the work on my vehicle. The staff is more than courteous and I was fully informed about what was going on with me vehicle, the needed repairs, and a price. This was my first visit but I am now a new loyal customer and I will bring my vehicle back for routine maintenance and any necessary repairs.

Belts were replaced on Thursday. When I turn on car and air conditioner, it makes a tremendous squealing noise?

Thank you Susie. Good to see you again.

I brought my car in for a maintenance check (i.e., hooked up to machine to determine any mechanical issues, oil check, check of fluid check levels of any kind.) I had to take my car back because they didn't check the tire sensors, and I also noticed that there was no windshield wiper fluid in the car which means they didn't check the fluid levels.

Great job y'all. Only reason it wasn't done on time was because there was a little more work to do than the original diagnosis. Happy with the work and treatment.

I love these guys - honest, fast, polite - highly recommend.

by - Verified Customer December 14, 2016

I feel that I was pressured into an unnecessary test after I shown them what I need for my car in order for me to get the warranty on the work preformed and also the estimate was different for what your website gave. These are my issues with Team 1 Automotive. Aaron and staff was good!!!!

Team 1 let's me know what repairs are needed and gives an order in which they need to be done right away or can wait.

Not being familiar with the area I was searching for a repair shop to perform a vehicle purchase check for a vehicle from United Auto when I found the ad for Team 1 Automotive. The mechanic and Aaron was very patient and professional while explaining everything to me that was done and with answering my questions. Prices were very reasonable service was outstanding. I will be moving to Columbia soon and will be back.

Paid 1100 to fix ac. When they gave it back to me it was blowing warm. I took it back to them to diagnose and they told me now it was the compressor and quoted me an additional 1000 to repair it. When i complained Jared said all he could do would be to work with me on the labor. When i asked how much he said 900. Thanks for taking my money. If everything they told me is true, the compressor went down while it was in their care because it was sure blowing cold when they charged it and put dye in to find the problem.

by - Verified Customer August 16, 2016

Very friendly. Called early in the morning, dropped my truck off, they gave me a ride back to work, then called a couple hours later after doing a thorough diagnosis and obtaining prices and parts availability and asked if they could proceed before doing any work. Had my truck fixed and ready to go by 5:30 that evening, earlier than expected!! Very clean lobby and friendly staff.

I was pleased with the quick service. One suggestion: Have the mechanic put down a cover over the driver's seat when he gets in. There is black grease on my seat from his clothes.

Electrical repair to my Ford, didn't have an appointment but they took me about 9 a.m. Called me with est. cost by 11 a.m. Fixed in mid-afternoon at a very fair price, no problems. I have done business with them before and they are my first choice in auto repair.

The work was satisfactory. They got the job done. There were some problems with some parts that were left off or that fell off after I got the car. They fixed it, so everything is fine.

They do reasonably good work. Not sure if the price was that reasonable. They kept finding more expensive stuff to fix.

They were very upfront. They were honest about what needed to be fixed. They gave a good price. I take my car there for routine maintenance because I know the work is going to get done. They do a good job for a good price.

Team 1 Automotive was professional and provided timely service when my tire went flat. They called a tire shop down the street and had it delivered. Aaron at the service desk was knowledgeable, professional and friendly.

They are very friendly. They are nice. I love the way the facility looks. The place is lovely. It is like walking into your own living room. The people there are so honest. I don't feel like I'm getting the run around or that anyone is taking advantage of me. I am happy to find a place that treats me well. They are just good people.

The last time I was in there, I didn't get a satisfactory job. I went back 2 or 3 times. I think all the mechanics are different.
