Johnny is just great. I don't know if he treats male and female customers the same, but he treats me (female) with respect and gives me credit for being an intelligent human being, even though I am not an expert mechanic. He also will let me know when he feels the issues of my VW are beyond his mastery (his expertise is American cars) and often recommends other shops that can do the job better and/or cheaper than his.

Johnny is absolution the best mechanic I have ever used. A friend referred me to him and I wouldn't take my vehicle anywhere else in Newport or the surrounding area. I refer him to everyone I know. He is honest and his prices can't be beat. Whether it is brake work, rebuilding my Jeep Grand Cherokee power steering box or just 20k maintenance, he bends over backward to quickly find a solution to any problem, at the best possible price. Even when this requires Johnny to do some serious rebuilding, he will not hesitate to do it quick and cheap. He is 100% devoted to his customers. The last time he did any major work on my vehicle, they ended up putting a belt on that was too large and slipped. I stopped in to the shop on a Friday evening about 6pm to see if I could get the car back in the following week. Johnny dropped everything and came out in the dark 15-degree weather to immediately rectify the situation at no charge and he actually let me help with the repair. Another interesting note - the first time I took my car to him (right before Christmas), I walked into the shop and saw about 15 cases of beer stacked up in the small front office. While I was there, three more customers showed up to drop of cases of beer. This is the single biggest reason that I would recommend Johnny's Getty. If his customers go out of their way to turn his shop into a beer distributor for Johnny and his crew - I just have to believe that the guy does great work at a reasonable price.

Johnny and Jimmy have kept our cars on the road virtually to end of life when others wouldn't have bothered. Second car reliability has been excellent. Service is always friendly and with a smile. They are most accomodating.

Jonhhy's is primarily a gas station but the cars neatly parked in his side lot, the two repair bays that are usually busy and the people that come back for repeat business prove he is a trusted mech too. Johnny has worked on a couple of our cars. He is just as happy doing a brake job as a tire repair, no job too little for their full attention. He is very responsive if you let him know getting back on the road is important. He is an old school former racer and has shop full of trophies and great pictures. He has turned down a lot of offers to buy the Dale Earnhart front cover from to his Coke machine. A great , small independent and dependable shop. Norm Hitchcock

Nice People and Honest!!!!! Brought my car in, assuming it needed brakes - Didn't get brakes, because the brakes were fine - Honest mechanics are not a dime a dozen - I'm so glad I discovered this place!
