Thank you for helping me out with a car problem this AM! You guys were friendly, honest, and knew what you were doing! I had a sudden car problem and rolled into the first place I saw happen to be a auto repair shop.I looked at the business hour sign and though, OK only a couple minutes to wait. Turns out the owner was not there to open his business at 8AM (it was 8:30 when I finally started looking around) but his mechanic was in the parking lot. He said he did not know how long it would take to open. I looked around and saw the Gulf across the street. I limped my car over to them, and they took care of me right away. Everything was professional and my day now looked a lot brighter. Thank you Medlock Gulf

Thank you Matt we appreciate your business.Karl
New to the area, have had major issues with other shops, coworker recommended them so gave them a try. Called Friday evening, appt Saturday morning, fixed Saturday afternoon, NICE! Went in for a grinding noise in the front end of 4wd SUV. They test drove it, looked at it, and took me back to show me/explain what was wrong. They suggested replacing the belt, which was cracked, and suggested replacing the wheel bearing unit and rotating the tires. I also knew a CV boot was leaking but instead of lying and telling me I needed to replace the whole joint, they said the clamp simply needed to be repositioned (huge difference in cost and very honest), could also have automatically said I needed to replace ball joint along with bearings but tried bearings first to see if that would fix problem and it did (again huge difference in cost and another honest move). Might be a tad bit more expensive then some, but they were very nice, gave me a ride home and brought me back when finished, have a 12 month, 12,000 mile warranty on work, and have experience with older cars. They've won me over so I'll go back and definitely recommend them to anyone needing a good auto shop.

This is an above average service center. I like the retro look of the building. We will continue to use them for repairs.

I went in to make an appointment. But I guess when Mr.Paul heard the noise the car was making he offered to fix it right then. It took exactly the amount of time he told me it would take. There were no extra problems discovered.I did not have to wait for the car; I was driven home and picked up. I am very greatful for the courteous service given to me. Thank you. Bonnie P.

Thank you.. We appreciate your continued business.Karl
This is truly a worthwhile place to fix your car if you need to. The mechanics and personnel are friendly, patient, and good at what they do and the best thing: it's much more affordable than most places. The wait is really not that long for most things, and no unnecessary wrongs are "discovered". If you do have to wait some while, they have a convenient rest area/coffee room with a TV off the side of their cashier station. I cannot recommend this place enough! Worth more than 5 stars!

My family has been taking our cars to the Medlock Gulf folks for over ten years and they have always done top notch work at a reasonable price. Paul is one of the best auto diagnosticians in the Metro area.

My old auto service station and repair closed and I had to find a new place. I was skeptical about Medlock Gulf because I hadn't done business with them although they were in my neighborhood. I first had my emission done there and they seemed so polite and helpful that I gave them the opportunity to work on my vehicle. They have always been accommodating, reasonably priced, done excellent work and given excellent service. Keep up the good work and service because we need honest businesses in our community. L.M.

Than you for your trust in earning your business.We hope we can serve you for years to come.We appreciate your business.Karl
I love these guys. They have remembered us and our car ever since we first brought it in for an oil change upon moving to Atlanta 3 years ago. They're honest - once, we brought the car in for a repair we thought it needed, but they called us back to let us know it wasn't necessary and we could come pick it up. The staff is also helpful, friendly, and prompt, and the location is easy to find and get to. Overall, I would highly recommend these guys!

I have had my Toyota serviced there a number of times. I have had quotes elsewhere - had it serviced elsewhere also. Time and time again, Medlock was fair priced and did good work. If there was a problem, they fixed it. The only places cheaper where OTP but again - they always stood behind their work which makes me come back.

I took my truck to these guys at this station as my engine would not idle evenly and it was running rough even after it had been given a tune-up. They found my the issue, repaired it, and I got out of there for reasonable labor charges. I will be back!
