03/12/14 12:36 am

My BMW had engine problems, and I consulted with numerous repair facilities that specialized in BMW. They were quoting much more than what Southwest estimated. I spoke with Rick a couple times and explained the issue. His expertise in BMW sealed the deal. I took the car in and he expected the repair to be completed within 2 weeks. I would bring my car back in for future work as needed.

Southwest is the place to go if you are having any issues with your car, or just basic service. Other places may not give your their full attention or go the extra mile for your needs. I definitely recommend this shop.

As usual you guys solved my Volvo problem quickly and at a reasonable cost. I can always count on your honesty even though the message may not be the one I want to hear. When I buy another car it will definitely be one you work on. Thanks again for the quick service and the free loaner car.

I really love the guys at Southwest Auto. They charge less than the dealer for the same quality work. They are courteous and friendly. They have loaner cars available for use or transportation to and from your location if you'd rather. They don't perform unnecessary "fixes" and make exhaustive efforts to solve the problem in the most cost-effective manner available. I can't say enough good things about them. They're wonderful! I would and have recommended them to anyone I know who drives a Mini ...

01/05/14 7:53 am

I've been bringing my Volvos here for many years and have never been disappointed. It's a family business with long time employees and long time customers. They'll repair them as long as you want to keep them going, sell them for you, or help find a replacement. They suggest repairs when they see something but don't push too hard, and they've told me on several occasions that the work I thought I needed was, in fact, not important or useful. This is my go-to place for Volvo work and I highly rec...

Great, honest service! Jerry and Rick, the front service technicians, give you straight, easy-to-understand explanations of car repairs (when needed) and help you prioritize the timing of any necessary maintenance/repairs. They are respectful of your time and will assist with loaner and rental vehicles as well.

12/02/13 9:36 am

I brought my Saab in because it vibrating and the check engine light was on. 4 days and $200 later, they give it back to me. The check engine light was back on in 5 minutes and I still have the same problem. They do have a shuttle which will pick you up, which is nice; but I can't say anything good when they failed to correct what I brought it in for.
