I've used this guys to repair my cars for over 5 years now, starting with my 10-year old Pontiac Grand Am and now on newer cars. I normally drop my car off at the shop in the morning before going into work and then pick it up when I get off of work. I love them because they're pretty realistic and fair about repairs. I've had some pretty old cars that they would have had ample opportunity to try to jack up the costs to repair, but they always offer to repair just what problems were critical. Washington Consumer Checkbook also gives them top marks for quality and cost.

We have been taking our cars to AutoTech since 1982 and have always been satisfied with their work. I feel like we have a personal mechanic who is familiar with our cars and can tell if a problem needs immediate attention or can wait when I call from the side of the road because I don't know what to do. The reason I went on this website is to look for a new mechanic because we are moving to another state. I can assure you we'll have AutoTech check out our cars before we start on the trip. I just hope we can find mechanics we trust this much at our new home.

This small repair shop is run by Ralph. He has a twin brother (Dave) who works there. They look alike, but they are very different personality-wise--took me years to be able figure them out. They sometimes have fun with this. I think they switch shirts with their name on it or something. I love Ralph because I trust him. He doesn't over charge or treat me as an inferior being because I'm female and don't know about cars. I grew up with guys who knew everything about cars, I just couldn't absorb any of it. My favorite Ralph story is the one about his wife ... she finally forbid him to fix their really old van. She just wanted a new one. He kept my old Honda running for 12 years until my neice wrecked it. (I sold it to her first.) He works on my sister's family cars. We've both gone to him for 15 years give or take. He's incredibly honest and kinda funny. I've referred him to people over the years and it has always worked out fine.

Ralph is wonderful. I love this shop so much because I know I won't ever be ripped off and they'll actually take the time to explain things to me.

I have taken my cars to autotech for over 15 years. I find Ralph and the mechanics there to be honest and helpful. they tell you what is wrong and also give advise about potential problems without being overly pushy regarding repairs. they are also good about telling me when I may need to replace tires, brakes and other similar items. they have always given me great feedback on used cars I was looking to buy. On one occasion they actually saved me a lot of money. I had a Ford Windstar with a blown head gasket that I towed there for them to fix. they told me what they would charge but also told me that they heard that the Ford had extended the Warranties for this problem. I called the dealer and found out that the repair was covered at no cost.

I have used Ralph for Hondas and Acuras for 20 years. He has remained incredibly honest, good humored and has always fixed the car on the first repair. I am not good with cars-- they have patiently explained and taken a look at things on the fly. Sometimes I just call with a question and they'll answer it ... from what kind of tires to buy (they don't sell them) or what car should I buy. They have done the same for friends I referred. My family in the area goes to them and I have refered others as well. No one has been dissatisfied. For those in the area, his Washington Consumer Checkbook rating has always been top quality. That's how I found him 20 years ago.

As a single mother, an honest, reasonably priced mechanic is more valuable to me than gold. They came VERY highly recommended from a devoted customer of more than ten years and I was more than impressed. I highly recommend this place to anyone in the NoVa area looking!
