I’ve been going to Gary’s automotive for a few years and they always do excellent work. I am naturally distrustful of car repair shops since I obviously don’t know as much as they do about cars and you don’t want to get sold on something you don’t need. Gary’s automotive has experienced technicians that know how to get work done which means you always get a quick and fair quote that doesn’t change. I can’t recommend them enough. Erik M.

This is a great shop to take your vehicle for a service, smog or repair. They are wonderful and will treat you right! They’re very fair on price and are very honest with you. So all you females out there that are afraid of getting taken advantage of because you don’t know much about cars I recommend going here you’ll be in good hands! They also get your ride back to you very quick!! All around awesome!! I’ve been going here for years and will continue for the rest of my driving days. Christina H.

Still awesome. I took my car in for an easy fix quoted at $250. When I went in to pick it up, the bill was only $196. It didn’t take as long as they anticipated so the labor cost was lower. They could have been dishonest and charged the full $250, and I never would have known but these are some seriously stand-up guys and they are honest. On a scale of one to five stars, they are a ten. Ris W.

This shop is great. Some places give the impression that women get a higher price quote than men, but that is not the case with Gary’s. He explained everything that went on with my vehicle, and explained why certain things were needed. He even showed me the part that he removed and compared it to a new one, so I could see the difference. Just fantastic service, and much more reasonably priced than anywhere else I called. I will certainly be coming back. Thanks! Emily R.
