I have used John's Automotive Repairs for years and have found them to be incredibly honest and forthcoming regarding necessary repairs and their costs. It rare to say these days, but I trust these guys!!

I chose John's because of the feedback I saw on the Cartalk website. This was my first visit there, and unlike the dealership, they didn't find half-a-dozen things adding up to $1,000 that needed attention. They checked my car as requested, and I agreed that I needed new tires. I had put 63,000 miles on the previous set, so I suspected they would recommend new tires. I agreed with their assessments of the vehicle, and Bob did take time to explain what they did, and also explained every item on the invoice. I would recommend them to anybody.

I was highly recommended by several co-workers that this is the place. Bob and his employees are top notch. They seem to be able to fix things that no one else can.

They guys did good work replacing shocks/struts. Prompt and well aligned when complete. I did feel surprised at the final bill so, while I would conclude it was fair, I'd have to say the estimate was not as clear as it might have been. Wouldn't hesitate to return, but would be more careful to review estimate details.

My first experience with John's was several years ago, I had just spend quite a bit of money with another shop for a tune up, oil change etc. Next day at work my car would not start, I called the shop that did the work and was told "we are too busy to come out right now, why don't you call a towing service and have it brought in and we will look at it. I remembered my neighbor had used John's for a long time, I called them, they came out, found a loose battery cable, fixed it and only charged what I felt was a very resonable service charge. I have been a customer ever since.

I have been a long time customer, three different vehicles, I recently had them check a used vehicle I considered purchasing. After a complete check which was printed out I was told there was only one major problem -- the car was in such good shape that I wouldn't need repairs at John's! I have never had a bad experience at this shop and do not hesitate to recommend them.

Bob and his crew are the best! Friendly service. Immaculate shop. Comfortable waiting area. I highly recommend John's Automotive to anyone seeking auto service in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City corridor.
