Ken & Bill never fail to provide the highest quality service and customer service. These are the only guys I trust with the service of my vehicles. Exceptional business, I recommend Total Auto to anyone in need of auto care, this is your spot.
Highly recommend! Had problem with engine light. Went to Total Auto right away and got excellent service. Did diagnostic scan, checked problem ID'ed by scan and immediately fixed it. Great service, knowledgeable mechanics who kept me advised every step of the way. Have used them several times and always satisfied.
Loved my experience. Easy process, reasonable prices. I have a hybrid car that required a full replaced headlight component. I had multiple auto shops refuse to work with my car. Automotive handled it easily without any issues. I will absolutely use them again for future maintenance.
As always a received courteous and speedy service. I am always given recommended service that I may need in the future. I have a 2003 Sonata that stills runs smoothly because of the excellent maintenance from the mechanics at Total Auto. It's always a a good experience.
Got the job done efficiently, good service, good price. As a single woman, finding an automotive shop where you aren’t patronized is a challenge- but this shop was very respectful. Will be going back with future needs.
The services performed were fine. However, the wind shield wipers were visibly shot and while . I forgot to mention that at check-in, at would have been helpful if someone had noticed. Good for me, good for you.
Hi Michael. Sorry for the overlook on the wind shield wipers the other day. Please bring your vehicle back any time and should it be replace, we will be happy to do it for you for free. Thank you for giving us all 5s on your survey except on this one :) . We will try to do better next time! Thanks again. -- Ken.

Total Auto is my family’s only auto repair shop. We have been using this service for more than ten years. All the mechanics are well-trained and dependable. The prices are always quoted up front so there are no surprises. If they find a problem that was not part of the original service request, they always call and get clearance for the added work. Our cars run great and we have recommended to friends.
