Testimonials

  • Rich has done a great job on all my vehicles over the last 10 years. Trusted and does honest work.
    -James P.

  • I've brought my truck in a few times, all for different reasons (brakes, cooling system, transmission, and standard maintenance). These guys know what they're doing and they get it done fast! General Auto is the only place I trust for auto repairs.
    -Jeff L.

  • Very practical, great service, great follow through, great prices.
    -Brian

  • General Auto Repair has done outstanding work for me for years. I have brought a number of vehicles there and they always provide great service and a full explanation of what needs to be done and what I can wait on before going to the expense to fix it. They are efficient, timely, cost-effective, trustworthy, and super helpful. I brought my son's 15-year-old Tacoma in before he drove it cross country to ensure everything was working and ready for the trip. They went out of their way to work with my timing, the repairs/maintenance was what I expected, and they were super informative. I had family member's vehicle that had been neglected so I called General and they had the vehicle towed then repaired at a very reasonable rate. They took a difficult situation and handled it for me. I highly recommend them.
    -Leslie C.

  • Very professional and prices are always reasonable. From my first visit, I could tell that they would not be trying to take advantage of me and it shows that they invest in their loyal customers, I take both of my cars to get repairs and oil changes for three years. I have never had one complaint.
    -Caleb

  • Honest advice, fair prices, excellent service is what comes to mind regarding this shop. We have been customers for a couple of years and extremely happy with the work performed on our cars.
    -James S.

  • Let me just say this, finding a good honest mechanic is probably one of the most valuable things to have in life. Rich and the boys at general auto are exactly that. They do fantastic work with the most reasonable honest cost. I live over 35 miles away from the shop and wouldn't think twice driving there to have work done to my car. Do yourself a favor and don't waste any time taking your car anywhere else. I don't ever write reviews but I just had to this time!
    -Ryan

  • Skilled and honest mechanics who give good prices on general repairs and maintenance on my car. I'm easily a customer for life.

    -Linda

  • I have been with Rich for 30 years. He is very aware that I need my truck for my lawn service and will have it back to me asap. Last month I got in my truck at 8 in the morning and it was shaking like crazy. Spur of the moment call, he had it back to me by one. My vehicles are always repaired because he gets in and test drives and makes sure. And he has no problem with bringing it back if I am not satisfied. I only have 4 cars in my family and trust Rich and his mechanics with all of them. Sometimes in life you just have to trust somebody. Your mechanic would be a good person to trust.
    -Ray

  • I have been going to General Auto for about 18 years and have always been treated with respect and honest evaluations. I have both my company vehicles and personal vehicles serviced here because I know that Rich and his crew are fair and honest. It may not always be the cheapest in town but I'll pay more for the quality, honesty and respect I get as a customer before going anywhere else!
    -Robert
