Help when I needed it!, 8/24/2013

I live up in Prescott but do business in metro phoenix and I suddenly had a check engine light come on. So I siried the closest repair shop and Bridwell Auto came up. I dropped off the car and had an... associate pick me up so we could keep working. Jack called me about 5 hours later and told me that the problem was a leak in the emissions system. I asked him if I could make it back home to get it fixed at my usual shop and he said yes. He let me know that it wasn't a problem that would break me down it was only going to stop me from passing emissions in two months so I had to get it repaired by then. What a find an honest shop! Jack thank you!

Great Service, 6/04/2011

My SUV had been covered with some kind of mystery goop that had dried on and they did a great job. In the end it couldn't all come off (not their fault), but they definitely went above and beyond my... expectations. Dustin worked on my car for the majority of the day. He tried 11-12 different products in an effort to find a solution for my car and even called others he knew in the auto detailing business. This shop has definitely earned all of my future auto detailing business. They were honest, hard working and their prices were more than fair.

Bridwell is a great business overall.

Bridwell Automotive Center is just great. That's almost all there is to it. What makes them great, though, is that they're family-owned, personable, and good at what they do.

Completely satisfied!

Bridwell Automotive Center has done everything from standard maintenance to major repairs for somewhere between five and ten years. Jack is their work leader and I continue to use their services because of their honesty.Andy E.

I go to Bridwell all the time.

At Bridwell Automotive Center, they're really good at communicating what needs to be done and how they're going to do it. I also trust them and don't feel they'll cheat me; they are honest and open.

I am a happy longtime customer!

I've gone to Bridwell Automotive Center for many years. I've always been satisfied. Sometimes I'll get a notice that work needs to be done, but when I take the car in Bridwell will tell me that, according to my mileage, I don't actually need the work yet. This makes me feel like they're not just trying to sell me unnecessary things! They also drive me home when the car is in.

Reasonable prices, honest guys

I have been servicing my car at Bridwell Automotive Center for years. The technicians are very professional and always complete services on time. They're honest and do a good job. The prices they offer are reasonable, and they never try to generate unnecessary costs for me. I've worked closely with Jack, but the whole staff provides excellent service. It's been a great experience, and I would recommend them.

Excellent, five stars all around

The guys at Bridwell Automotive Center were courteous, contentious, very informative, and they let me know the price up front. They were very obliging and accommodating when they asked me if I needed a ride home. Let me know in advance when they were available so I could work around my schedule to drop off my car.

I've been going for years and have no complaints.

Bridwell Automotive has always done a good job. I've been using them for several years, ever since the dealership and garage for my Saturn closed down. My car is old and taken care of by the people at Bridwell. RESPONSE FROM Bridwell Automotive Center: Thank you Marilyn,Lane Bridwell

They are great at Bridwell. I come here exclusively.

I have been using Bridwell Automotive Center pretty much exclusively for a couple years now, largely because when we take our two vehicles in, their customer service is just fantastic. They also have very competitive prices compared to other quotes I've gotten for the kind of work done.

A most rewarding experience.

Everything was excellent. Bridwell Automotive Center just did a number of things for me, from my brakes to just changing the oil to a whole bunch of other things. Everything was excellent, truly--from the thoroughness to the helpfulness to the results. I would highly recommend them. They took care of me in every way, which is nice because I'm an elderly person.

Great, locally owned business

Bridwell Automotive Center fixed my vehicle that is parked out in Arizona and I am in Michigan so I really trust them with my vehicle. They seem to do a real good job and they do repairs and basic maintenance like oil changes for me. They are locally owned, conveniently located, and they have been there a long time. It reminds me of my own small business and they take a lot of care for your vehicles. RESPONSE FROM Bridwell Automotive Center: Thank you Janet for your vote of confidence.Lane Bridwell

Bridwell Automotive

Whether you have a flat tire or a busted fender, you want someone you can trust to fix your car. However, you donít want to overpay or have to wait for weeks to get your car back. So, how do you choose a great auto repair company? Here are 3 telltale signs.

1. They have positive reviews. Just because a company is heavily advertised on the television or radio, doesnít mean they are trustworthy. Check out reviews on the Internet to see what previous customers say about them. The biggest compliment that a company can receive is past clients referring their friends and family to them. Pay attention to who your loved ones trust with their cars.

2. They boast a cleanly kept area. Donít be afraid to take a peek into the garage... READ MORE »
