Will drive us to work, and then pick us up. Never overcharges us. Will never advise work to be done that is not necessary. Even over weekend, when closed, cares about how we are getting around. Sort of the Click and Clack of Tampa.

Tampa Auto has been my choice for service for over 13 years and 221,000 miles on my Surburban and 100,000 on my Century. You get an honest answer as to what has to be done for safety, and what can wait awhile. Not only do they give you a ride to work, but they come back and pick you up at your convenience. Anyone working in downtown Tampa should use this shop. Great trustworthly owners and friendly mechanics.

I went in and told them that my wife's Camry needed new rear schocks, something I never do. Its like baring your throat to a wolf. They looked at it and said "Yeah, her shocks are pretty worn, but the noise you've been hearing was a loose piece of sheet metal that we fixed. No charge." Naturally I took off without getting the shocks, but eventually I'll get them there. Good people.

Ralph and Doreen remember you and act like they want you to come back next month and next year. They understand that you think differently when you have an older car (beater) and give you the range of options. They'll even drive you to work.

I get honest answers when i need them, they do good work, neighborly. Down to earth. Sympathetic. Give me a range of options when there is one. I like dealing with them becasue they are more honest than most mechanics I've ever had to use with the exception of one shop in Houston that worked on my wife's Honda.

my acura integra is VERY OLD (1994), with over 200K miles. Ralph always suggests that I buy a new car, and not do any costly repairs, but I seem to just have about $1000 / year overall, even with the "major" repairs. overall the cost / month is lower than a car payment so i still find repairing my old acura worth the money. I only had one time where the repair didn't work the first time. I took the car back, and Ralph corrected the problem right away without charge. Plus I still haven't had to replace the clutch. Maybe when that happens I might reconsider buying a new car but I kind of want to see how long it will go.

New in town, car overheated and found the shop from this website. They agreed the towing company I had found was reliable and made the arrangements while I was at work. Work was done in a day and followed-up when the gauge indicated a bubble in the coolant system. They are exactly what I was looking for.
