Total Auto is always a pleasant experience -- staff are friendly, work is done correctly and efficiently, prices are fair. They have serviced my car for well over 6 years!
Thank you, Vickie, for your recent visit. We are very glad to hear that your experience at our shop continues to be pleasant! :) We remind ourselves each day that we are "home of the honest mechanics" -- our logo the past 30+ years -- to serve you our best!
They got me in and out. I walked in without and appointment, and they still took care of me as if I had an appointment. I really appreciated that.
Making my appointment online was great. The staff was helpful and honest. I like that they don't try to sell me services I don't need and are honest about the ones that I need. I took my car in on the day before Thanksgiving so I think the service was a little slower than usual but all in all it was a good experience.
As always the service was prompt, the service tech answered all questions regarding the service in a way that was understandable. I'll be back again for regular service as well for any other problems at come up.
100% Positive experience. I am far from home on a road trip when my truck would not move. Turns out my transmission line became disconnected. They added fluid and did an overall basic maintenance on the undercarriage of the truck. They were very professional and honest and checked everything else. I was so pleased...not having to face an expensive repair. If I lived in the area I would definitely use this shop for my regular maintenance and repairs! The cost to do the service was also reasonable.
Thank you thank you Kay! Thank you so much for your love and support, and the straight 5's on the survey! It really lightens up our day here reading your comments and a reward for the whole team seeing our effort is recognized. TAM LOVE YOU, TOO! Whoohoo! :)
