They spent over an hour and a half trying to align my car (concluded that the frame is bent from a previous hit), so Beau said there's No Charge!!! I was blown-away! He said he couldn't charge me because he couldn't provide what he would be charging me for... aligning my car! He even advised me that it'll cost more than the car is worth (94 Honda Accord) to straighten the frame and replace all the bushings just to get the alignment right. I feel bad since he did spend an 1 1/2 hrs of his time trying to get it done? So I will send as many people his way to make up for the time he lost with me. Good Shops are hard to find.

I recently moved and was looking for a new mechanic to take care of my cars. After trying a couple other places, my third time was a charm with A-1 Automotive. They do good work (I've had no issues with any repairs/maintenance), take the time to explain your repairs and maintenance without being insulting (rare in mechanics) and thoroughly look over your vehicle to spot any problems that you may not notice (they found a defective valve gasket while replacing spark plugs), all at an affordable price.

Our engine was vibrating very badly at stoplights and it only got worst if we had the A/C on. We went to one place and were told that the compressor was going bad. We decided to put it off until it failed completely. I found A-1 in the phone book and we went there. Not only was it not the A/C, but it was the motor mounts that we thought we had replaced 2 years ago at another place. They even showed us the one mount that was replaced and one of the factory ones that was not. They said it would take 2 hours to replace the three bad mounts but got it done in less than an hour. Honesty and workmanship are most important and you will find both at A-1.

Basically, I have all of the same concerns that YOU probably have when selecting a mechanic - who can you trust, and who is going to rip you off? Generally, I'm reluctant to give 5 stars to a business, because I can usually find some fault somewhere, but A-1 really deserves high praise. I was new to the area about two and a half years ago and had what I thought was a major problem with my truck A/C. Based on an ad on a restaurant menu that stood out, I took it to A-1. The owner, Beau, found the problem was a 53 cent part that was malfunctioning, and sent me on my way (very surprised, and happy). There was probably no better way to come to understand that this was a man, and business, built on integrity and honesty. For me, that would be more than enough to earn my repeat business, but over the past two years, Beau and the team at A-1 have also proven to be more than capable at diagnosing and repairing every issue I've had. He has ASE certification and knows his stuff. His prices are more than fair, as well. This is as good as it gets, folks. I'm sorry to be leaving the area, because I truly trust this business, and it's owner. Do yourself a giant favor and give your business to this guy.

I've been here twice and leaving there with a smile on my face. I've been to too many mechanic shops and most of them aren't as good as this place. Beau, the owner of the mechanic there is very nice and has great communication. I've taken my car there and he was very nice and patient enough to explain the problems with my car both times and save me time and money. He really knows his stuff and I trust his mechanic expertise! Beau, his mechanics, and his secretary are very friendly and nice. I would recommend bringing your vehicle here for any repair issues you have and at a very fair and reasonable price. This is a very handicapped friendly place, I'm hearing impaired, mind you. And the communication is great and patiently works with you. They've got my business always! I would be going back! Thanks, Beau and his team!

These guys are the BEST!! I've been here 3 or 4 times now. Today my Check Engine light was the issue. They called me back and said that there really wasn't an issue at all. They ran a bunch of tests and checked some message boards. The issue causing my Check Engine light to come on, is also affecting lots of other vehicles of the same age, make, and model. They told me I could replace the part for just over $300 but they advised me I really didn't need to. There was no charge! I am a customer for life. Thank you A1 Automotive Center. I heard about this place from a friend who lives around 25 miles away from them. He won't use anyone else!

I have had multiple cars repaired at A-1. Never even got a hint that they were dishonest or not knowledgeable. Fair prices, polite, competent, and trustworthy. What more could anyone ask for from a repair shop?
