I love these guys. They are the official car mechanics of all the graduate students in my department. Needless to say grad students have plenty of car trouble and are looking for guys who will fix it right for a great and honest price, tell you when it isn't worth fixing, and tell you when a cheaper "band-aid" fix is a possibility and all the pros and cons to such a fix. Sometimes I have trouble stopping Trey from explaining all the details of a repair and why it costs a certain amount. Seriously, when I move I will miss these guys soooo much. For my husband and me, they have worked on an Oldsmobile Alero, Saturn SC2, and Pontiac Lemans (which had to be sent to the great garage in the sky, but they were very sympathetic when they broke the news of the cracked head gasket).

Trey and Kenny are the best. My car has been in the shop a lot because it's a dud. They have always been helpful, explain everything in the most thorough details, they check in with me constantly to let me know the status of the repair, if the price is okay for proceeding with the repair, etc. Both Trey and Kenny go way out of their way to ensure that I'm a happy customer. They are the most honest mechanics I've ever known. They have the highest level of integrity I've ever seen. I recommend that everyone goes to Miller Brothers!

I was referred to Miller Brothers Auto when I returned to St. Louis after a four-year absence and now lived a consider from my previous well-trusted mechanic. They have always taken the time to explain at length when something is wrong with my car, what needs to be done to repair it, and what my possible alternatives are. I appreciate the fact they never try to "sell me" on anything. They are always polite, even-toned (no yelling), and articulate. They call me when they say they're going to call me, whether it's just as an update or to let me know my car is ready. There is a drop-box available so you can drop your car off after hours. I think they are so great, I drive out of my way to take my car to these mechanics.

I recently moved to PA, and I MISS Kenny and Trey!!! They took care of my 98 Civic from when I bought it in 2001 until I moved in 2008. My first experience with them was when I brought in a Ford Escort that I was considering buying, and they spent about half an hour looking at it, determined it had enough problems to make it questionable, advised me not to buy it, and didn't charge me a dime! Obviously, after that I never went anywhere else! After I bought my Civic (also inspected by them and found worthy) they kept it in great shape, and were always thorough in both their work and explanations, kept meticulous records about my car, fixed everything quickly and correctly (I never had to go back to have anything redone or adjusted), and were incredibly honest. They always advised me on what work really needed to be done immediately, what could definitely wait until later, and what would be nice to do now but wasn't urgent. I never felt like they tried to sell me anything I didn't need, they were consistently at or under their estimate, and even now when I live halfway across the country, I still call them for advice and they take the time to look up my records, ask all about the car's current situation, and tell me what they think. I recommend them to absolutely everyone I know, and I doubt I will ever in my life find another repair shop this excellent.

Trey and Kenny are by far the best mechanics I have ever had work on my car. I have been going to them for 8 years now and have never been disappointed. They always take the time to explain what they did and why they did it, and it has always been done well. I recommend them with no hesitation to anyone I know.

My friends/family and I have been taking our cars to Miller Brothers for a few years now. Cars include a 2001 Jeep Wrangler, 2005 Acura RSX Type S, 1998 Nissan Maxima, Toyota Corolla. They are always friendly and do great work. They give a printout of what they did in a neat and organized fashion that is easy to understand (not in technical mechanic jargon). They're not cheap but I feel that their prices are fair considering how well done and through their work is. They will give you a ride home or pick you up if the distance is reasonably close. They can refer you to a great auto body facility that did excellent work on the aforementioned acura. AAA approved. Hours are M-F 8-5

This is the ideal place for auto repairs. I am a dedicated customer after having had our Honda Accord and Toyota Tacoma serviced/repaired at Miller Brothers. I would echo all the other positive comments because I can personally attest to having received the same exceptional treatment, advice, and service. Trey and Kenny may seem to good to be true but they are unparalleled in honesty and recommending the most common sense approach to the repairs that are needed. They will not compromise safety and if a repair is not needed or can wait they'll tell you and offer their recommendations on a course of action. You won't regret giving them your business.

Great shop. They are knowledgeable and friendly. They even work on motorcycles and scooters (unadvertised service). They allow after-hours pickup. The only negative thing I can say is that their prices are a little high. But, I have never had a beef with them.

Miller Bros. are fantastic mechanics. They do an amazing job and explain everything in complete detail. They have kept my 20-yr old Volvo in great condition for the past five years. I will really miss them when I move out of state next month!

As you can see from the other posters, they are the best. They did great work on my Saturn, and when I had to replace it I had two long phone conversations with Trey and Dax in which they gave me great advice about shopping for a used car. We still patronize them despite having moved across town, away from their shop--this despite being a one-car house, making it more difficult to use a mechanic far away. But they are worth it.
