I found Pete's on the internet (wouldn't have seen it driving by since they are hidden behind a garden shop) and I couldn't be happier with their service. They fixed an emissions problem on my car that had been misdiagnosed by several mechanics and "fixed" twice before. And they charged about half what the previous attempts had! They dropped me off at work and had the repairs done quickly-- and they explained what they had done without treating me with the "you're female you couldn't possibly understand" that I sometimes get from other mechanics.

These guys are the best. I'm consistently suprised at the quality of work they do. On two occasions in particular, they've gone above and beyond my expectations. The first time my truck was running rough and I realized a bolt was missing. I brought it to the shop to see if they had a replacement, they dropped everything to look at the problem, then when they didn't have the part advised picking one up at the hardware store for $1. The next time I was convinced my starter was blown, and advised them as much. Turned out is was just a loose wire. They rock!

Incredibly accommodating, swift, communicative & friendly! As I've just moved to the area, I didn't know quite who to turn to when my Nissan began churning out some thumping drumlikebeats from the back brakes - Found them on CarTalk & gave a call: Pete took a look the same day, and returned it quiet and smooth the next along with a comprehensive explanation of the problem. Will definitely go back if anything else turns up!

I'm very particular about who works on my vehicle (2002 Mazda Protege LX). This is my fouth car and I just don't have the time nor location to do repairs myself anymore. I found Petes' Import Garage via this web site and the two times I've talked to them on the phone were very good. They called me back when they said they would and the actual cost of repairs was in line with what they quoted for a front end brake job including replacing the rotors. All-in-all a good experience. I would definitely recommend this shop.

These guys are great. My dad has been going to them for years and never takes our family cars to any other mechanics. When I got my first car, it came with numerous problems, and they fixed all the ones that needed to be fixed and left alone pricier, unnecessary fixes. They are very honest, pleasant people. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

I've been taking my Toyotas and Nissans to Pete and Pete for almost 20 years. I have always been pleased with their honesty, fairness, competence, friendliness, intelligence, and the fact that their business name is grammatically correct. (Petes' Import Garage: plural possessive)(these things are important to me.) It'll be a sad day when they retire.

Peter Peteet has worked on both of our cars and always does a good job. He is honest and will tell you whether or not he feels a particular repair or maintenance is necessary now, or can be deferred a bit. it is easy to work with this shop.

I will not take my car anywhere else. One of the rare qualities that I really value is the honesty. Imagine that, an honest mechanic!

I work in a rural town about two hours from Atlanta. After three failed attempts to have my car repaired at the local mechanic I found Pete's Import Garage through this website. I dropped off my Volvo before leaving the country. They gave me a ride to the MARTA station and I picked it up in perfect condition on my way back. They replaced a $40 part (something like a fuel injector relay switch) that the other mechanics might not have even realized existed, and tuned up a few other things. Almost a year later, I drove through the middle of the night to Atlanta for fear of taking my car back to a local mechanic who wrongly told me I just needed new spark plugs. Peter Petite was courteous the next day and told me exactly what the problem was. These guys are the most competent mechanics I've met. I just wish that they were a little bit closer to my rural town.

Being new to Atlanta last year, I went to the cartalk website to look for one that I could trust. Found Pete's Garage and they have been fantastic! Trustworthy! Explain everything, are never condescending. Highly recommend them.
