I am almost scared to put these guys on here since they are so good and small enough to get most repairs done within a few hours/end of the day. They have always talked straight and only fix what needs fixing, for a fantastic price too. I have recommended them to a few other friends and they have had a similar experience, including repairing a head gasket for $800 less and 2 days quicker than the dealer quoted! Only thing... they are not open on Sundays.

Straight talking, friendly, competent and professional. A small shop with strong ties to its neighborhood.

I've been going here for over 15 years and have never been disappointed. Dave, Jaret, et al. are always up front, competent, and willing to explain things clearly to a non- mechanic. On the VERY RARE (like once) occassion when they don't get it perfect the first time, they make it right. But like I said, them not getting it right is very rare -- these guys are mechanical magicians! Quick turn around time is also a plus. And....there's a bus stop right outside their door so you can get to work. Like the other reviewer, I'm almost afraid to list these guys, because they are so good. But where credit is due!

I brought my car in for an oil change and exclaimed a concern about my safety. The Ball joints of my car were quite loose and my near to brand new tires had already worn down quite a bit. They recommended bringing in the car as soon as possible to fix the alignment, ball joints and tires, as the consequences of waiting could have stranded me on the highway. The price was fair, they visually pointed out the problem of my car to me, and they fixed it in one day. As a woman, I felt totally comfortable trusting these guys!

I've been going here for almost 20 years, for both routine maintenance and major repairs. On the few occasions that I've used other shops (warranty work, or I couldn't get in at SE) my regard for Dave ert al. has only increased. They are honest, staraightforward, and competent! I moved to the other side of twon about eight years ago -- but I still take my cars to Southeast. They are marvelous.

I have been using these guys for many years. They are great. I take all my vehicles here and have never had problems. Thanks

I came in thinking I had to replace my thermostat, and told them such. I also had previously purchased a thermostat, but could not replace it myself. After inspection, they decided that the thermostat was not the problem- I just needed a coolant flush. I ended up paying ~$150 less than I expected, so I was happy with their service!

I have been going SE auto service for over 5 years. They are quality, explain everything clearly, and are honest. They didn't do $400 of work because they didn't think it was the problem. They were right. They also referred me to quality specialty shops when needed (transmission work). I highly recommend them.

Because of 30+ years of excellent service at extremely reasonable prices, I recommend SE Auto to all my friends. They always explain the problem clearly and offer a choice of alternative treatments so that the customer can choose what is best for him or her. If they think that the problem requires more specialized knowledge, they offer a short list of specialists. This business has customers whose families have been patronizing it for three generations.

Just want to give a shout out to how great Southeast has been to me. They have been fixing my cars for a few years now. On Thursday we had a flat tire and Guy, the mechanic, drove to our home and filled the tire up so I could drive it over to him. What great customer service!
