5-Star Automotive did for me in 15min what Tires Plus wanted me to wait for 2+ hours for. All I needed was my flat tire checked/repaired, and I only had my 1-hour lunch break to get it done. Within 2 minutes, they diagnosed the problem. Within 15 minutes my tire was fixed, put back on my car, and the spare put away...And all the while, they were very nice, helpful, and friendly, and charged me a very reasonable rate. In the couple minutes I was there I was impressed--I will go back if I need a mechanic, or even just to get my oil changed.

Tommy Dillard and his sons operate a first class repair shop. They are always courteous, honest, and up-front about every repair. I have four vehicles and I take everyone of them to Five Star. I have sent many friends to Five Star and each has come away satisfied with the service and price. They are now repeat customers to his shop. It is great to have a mechanic that you can trust and who repairs the car right the first time. If it is something that they cannot handle, he tells me so up-front and then recommends a qualified person/shop who can do the work. This is a "five star" (pun intended) repair shop.

I used this shop when I lived in Athens, GA, and miss them very much now that I live in Florida, but I want to encourage anyone who lives in or near Athens to use them. I had a limited income when I lived there, and they always only fixed what was wrong and worked with me on things that could be safely postponed. While I checked that they responded well when they screwed things up, that is based solely on my confidence in them as they never screwed anything up. They normally are extremely busy but honest about how long a repair might take; I found that they did simple repairs no slower than other places I had used before I found them.

I brought my Volvo wagon to Ahley and Joey for over four years for routine maintenance (oil changes, tires, etc.) and for major work (replacing a power steering rack, replacing brakes). They were always courteous and honest and the work was always done in a timely manner. They took the time to explain the reason for any necessary repair work and answered all of my questions without making me feel like an idiot. While I lived in Athens, I recommended Five Star to all of my friends, particularly women, because I felt that this was a very trustworthy, competent garage. Now that I've gone, I'm missing my favorite mechanics!

Very honest and up front about what you need. I brought my car over several times due to some squeaky brakes, but they assured me they didn't need to be changed yet. Clearly just wanting to do what is best for the customers.

We found Tommy and his shop through my father-in-law. My father-in-law picked up a nail in his tire while visiting and stopped at a gas station to purchase some Fix-A-Flat. While there, he met Tommy who suggested that he pull around to his shop and offered to fix the tire for him. He charged my father-in-law a very reasonable rate and really impressed him with his courtesy and friendliness. Since then, we have made Tommy's shop OUR car shop. We have been very happy with their work, their help, and, as important, their honesty. As well, Tommy has helped us to find a body shop in town and to find a shop that can help us with our VW. A big thumbs-up for All Star Automotive, Tommy Dillard and his staff!
