They completed the replacement of the radiator on my Ford Taurus quickly. I received a prompt telephone estimate before I had the car delivered to them. When there was a minor change in the estimate, they called me immediately and still completed the work on time even though there was a delay in me getting back to them. Using them saved me over $200 from what a dealership was going to charge me. Their work has been very satisfactory. When I picked up my car they alerted me to some concerns for the future, but said I had spent enough money and those repairs could wait.

I first met Mark when he moved from Georgia to Jacksonville, Florida and opened his business in the same location he is in now.I had been trying to install a part in my Cutlass and was very nervous about doing it but wanted to save some money as another mechanic wanted $300.00 based on the NADA of 8 hours.I saw Mark as I was driving by as he had just opened.There were very few cars there so I decided to give him a try.I asked if he could install my part and charge me labor and or anything else he saw that would be feasible to replace while it was torn down.I said I wouldn't expect a warranty on the part just the work.He did it for the labor cost of only the time he actually spent ($25) not an automatic number of hours based on the NADA.He also warranted his work.I have been using him exclusivly since.I also recommend him to all family (they all now use him) and friends and even strangers when I have the opportunity.I now here some friends of the people I have told about Mark recommend Mark to others.I recently was talking to someone I had just met through another friend concerning a problem I was having with my wifes car and they quickly recommended their mechanic they had just started using and bragged of his honesty and integrity and their complete trust in him.When I inquired who this was they quickly replied"Mark Howard".

We took our Volvo to them becuase it had a delay in starting at times. They called us later in the day and said that they believed the problem was related to a recall. They explored the problem as much as they could before their system would not allow them to proceed due to a technical bulletin put out on the car. We had to see a Volvo Specialist. They referred us to an excellent one and gave us directions. Mark Howard Automotive did not charge us anything for identifying the problem.

I've only used them once so far, but they were great! I had a belt break on my old Kia while driving to work right in front of Mark's shop. I coasted in and asked about fixing it. He looked up the part, gave me a (very good) price, and had the part there in less than 20 minutes. Another 15 minutes and I was back on the road. He actually pulled one of his guys off another, more involved repair to get me going. This was honestly the best experience I've ever had with an auto repair. I recommend them wholeheartedly.

I had a terrific experience. I found them on this site. They quoted a price to me way below the auto dealership I used to go to. They are fast as well I had several major repairs that needed to be done and they were finished within 24-48 hours. Great job!
