Gavula Bros. is a general service garage. I have taken all my vehicles to Joe and George (and Dad, who acts as receptionist) for about 15 years (and probably almost as many cars). Everyone to whom I have referred Gavula Bros. appreciates their service, bar none. The most important thing to note about Gavula Bros. is there honesty, something unfortunately lacking in so many mechanics. Moreover, they are extremely competent and always have fixed my vehicles in a single day. Joe and George never over-charge, in fact they normally try to save me money. The only negative about the garage is that they do not do major repair jobs, e.g. transmission work or engine overhauls, however, they always make an effort to refer their customers to a competent honest mechanic who can do the job. Overall, I can heartily recommend Gavula Bros. Garage to anyone looking for a great mechanic in OKC. Book ahead, they are popular, but will make exceptions in emergencies. Keep up the great work, Tom & Ray!

Both of the brothers take special care to just fix what's wrong, not go looking for "other" problems. Many times I've just taken the Camry in and just told them to fix what needs fixing. Joe always calls if he finds anything out of the ordinary and gives a cost of repairs.

These folks are the best and most honest mechanics I've ever done business with.

I've been taking my cars to Gavula Bros since the early 1980s. They are always friendly, helpful, and thorough. Although there's usually a 2-week wait to get in, when my car broke down and I had it towed there, they got it in the next day. One time I had an intermittent electrical problem and Joe couldn't figure out what it was. He replaced the distributor, the computer, and several other high dollar parts over the course of several days, which he picked up from a junk yard. When he finally pinned the problem down, he didn't try to charge me for the parts that weren't bad, and he didn't charge me for the bulk of his time spent debugging it. And he did fix it. Any other garage would have socked it to me bigtime. Can't blow their horn loud enough. The only downside to Gavula Bros is the long waiting list they always have, up to 2 or 3 weeks to get in. I suppose that is the price of quality.

George has worked on my Expedition several times and I have had nothing but good experiences at his shop.

I've been going to the Gavulas for years, and they are trustworthy and reliable. I have complete confidence in them.

On more than one occasion, I have taken a vehicle to these guys and they couldn't find anything wrong. even though they spent time checking out the car (and telling me what and how they checked it) they charged me nothing because the "couldn't find anything wrong." I have had dealership repair shops quote me a price for a repair that these did for less than half the cost. Repairs are usually done my the next day. even though they close before I can get there after work, they have let me pick up the vehicle and pay later. My only complaint is that they don't often call to tell me what's wrong with the car, they just fix it, for a good price, but I'd like to know in advance the estimate.

I have been going to Gavula Brothers Garage for close to 25 years (since my first car). I have never had a problem with their work. They are very honest, and to me, that is worth it all! Sometimes, they might be more expensive than other places, (like an oil change) but, to me, honesty saves me lots of money in the long run! Again, I can not say enough about their honesty!

Absolutely the best garage and mechanics I've ever dealt with. Scrupulously honest and very competent folks. Joe has kept two of our Toyota vehicles running smoothly for a long time. Only problem is, they won't work on my MINI Cooper!

Joe and George are by far the best mechanics I have ever seen. There is nothing they cannot do. I have had numerous cars repaired by them and it is always done right the very first time. I have never taken my cars back a second time for the same repair. They do it right the first time. They are both pretty much Mechanics Savants. They kept my 280 ZX running for 436,000 miles!
