Both my cousin and myself have been going to see Joe and Linda for over 5 years. I have had them service all of the cars I owned in that time with impecable service. Joe and Linda are small business owners and treat their customers as friends. They are honest to a fault and never have tried to upsell me on anything or fix something that did not need fixing. They keep track of my repairs and tell me when it is time for something I may have forgotten about. This is especially helpful when it comes time for a wearing part to be replaced and we can determine if that part has lived its true life expectancy. The only type of service they do not do is body work. I can not say enough about these two and their shop, I have recommended it to everyone I know, the only drawback is that unless you live in the North Raleigh area they are a little out of the way.

Joe and Linda, the owners, have been very honest on repairs and options on our 2002 Toyota Prius and 2000 Subaru Outback StationWagon (Limited Edition). They also let me know if I need to go to the dealer concerning the Prius, but for most standard maintenance, they can handle the hybrid vehicle. Joe has hired other mechanics and he keeps very close tabs on their performance. He even had to let one go because this person was "too fast" in service recommendations (basically trying to sell unneeded parts and service to customers). --GIF

They kept changing the date when the truck would be ready. They did keep very close to the the estimate. I did have to keep asking them questions about when it would be ready and any other charges.

Previous ownership prior to mid-2000s was great; new ownership is dismal and an insult to what having your car worked on should be. My family and I had used this auto shop for 20+ years and it's with great frustration and sadness that we are now seeking out a new garage for our repairs, etc. Bayleaf Tire & Auto is understaffed, inept insofar as their ability to communicate effectively to customers, as well as actually fixing my car. Despite having Bayleaf as an option, we will be driving a few miles more to drop off our car for work at any other local garage.

This place used to be great when Joe and Linda were the owners years ago. It has declined markedly. They made repairs to my car that weren't needed and didn't fix the problem I brought it to them to fix. Chris charged me $900 for those "repairs" and I still had to take it elsewhere to actually get the needed repairs done. This was the last straw, as I'd given them chance after chance to earn my business. Their location is very conveniant to me, so I really wanted to keep going there. You'll do yourself a favor to go elsewhere for your car repair work.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SHOP! After 3 visits to this shop and spending over $2000 these people could not get rid of my check engine light. They did replace many parts, but didn't fix the problem. Charge lots on labor last time, $700. Do Not Go Here with check engine light ON. I DON'T THINK THEY ARE QUALIFIED MECHANICS.
