I found Catherine's when my employer had work on our company truck done there. I was so impressed with the job they did, I brought my own Focus there. They are open from 7 am - 6 pm so dropping off my car before work was no problem, and they gave me a ride to work and picked me up to get my car. They gave me a reasonable estimate (and charged less!!) and were honest about what needed fixing now and what could wait a bit, which was great for my grad student budget. I'm hooked.

I can't say enough good things about this shop. I am moving to CA, and one of my greatest regrets is that I'm leaving Catherine's. I now go to their second location on Northside Drive at 10th St. Go to their website and get to know them at www.catherinesautorepair.com. She and her staff are well-informed and always spend time explaining their work. I've learned a lot through their free car-care class, too! Their work may be pricier up front, but the quality of work may very well save you money in the long run.

Catherine hires personable, competant people in all positions. They are approachable and honest and always take the time to explain things to you in detail. We've always been happy with their work, and we've been going to them exclusively for 4 years (and 4 cars!).

Just took my car there (to the Piedmont location)for the first time and it was great! They dropped me off at work after I left my car, the repairs cost less than I expected (and, I had also asked them to check my brakes and they said I didn't need any work done on them -- I have never had a mechanic tell me I didn't need work!) and it was all done the same day. I typically DREAD going to the mechanic, but this was fine, no worries. I would recommend going there.

I have had a great experience at Catherine's (the Northside Drive location) with two different Chevrolets. They were able to diagnose a very difficult electrical problem that the dealer was not able to accurately diagnose. The employees are very competent and thorough when checking a vehicle out as well as explaining their findings. I highly recommend Catherine's to others.

My 1995 Firebird Formula Firehawk started throwing the original stamped rocker arms. I had one replaced several months ago at another shop, but Catherine's correctly told me all should be replaced at once. I provided my own Comp Cams rockers from Summit Racing (20 miles outside Atlanta), as the GM ones are not the best, and the Comp Cams can increase HP by 20 to 30 (Catherine's will not warranty work for customer-provided parts, however). Excellent service and communication from Catherine's throughout. They returned my old parts without me even asking, and provided the most complete explanation of their work and inspection I've ever seen on an invoice. In this day and age of dishonest mechanics and dealerships that would rather replace an entire engine and/or misdiagnose the problem (after the first rocker arm broke a few months ago, the Pontiac dealer in Mobile AL told me I needed a new engine for $8500!), Catherine's is a breath of fresh air. They will drive you to your home or work within the immediate area, or Enterprise car rentals just down the street. Oh, and the 10% AAA discount is a great bonus.
