What Our Customers Are Saying

I am a car enthusiast and mechanic and usually take care of my own cars. However, after I completed an engine overhaul for my daughter's car, I kept getting a service engine light code that prevented me from getting her car registered. After spending hours on the problem and still not corrected, other priorities took precedent and I wanted to find a place I could engage to have them focus on the problem while I tended to more pressing issues. I found Extreme Auto and gave them a call. I was immediately impressed with their willingness to help and their knowledge about the situation. Extreme Auto invested the time it took to correctly diagnose the problem without throwing new parts at it in hope of solving the problem like most dealerships would. They followed through and methodically chased down the problem until they had an answer. I was very happy with the service, the expertise, the dedication and the cost. They went way above and beyond on this one, and for that I am grateful. Nice work Extreme Auto!!!


-Mike W.

They have worked on my car multiple times in the last 4 plus years, and I always get excellent service and good honest work. Nobody else works on my car, period!


-Kalin Cloyd

Very honest, which is hard to find in an auto repair shop. They have worked on multiple vehicles of ours and other family members, and we have all been very satisfied. I even took my car in once for a check engine light, and they did a full diagnostic for free. They really take care of you once you're a customer. Not to mention, Cindy at the front desk, is an absolute sweetheart.


-Caryn N Joey Lopez

Because of Extreme Auto, my car has over 230,000 miles and runs great. I get cost effective problem solvers with repair service I can depend on.


-Rick Draper

Finally found high quality and confidence from a team I can trust.


-Sharon Hoel

After many years of having my car repaired at the dealership, I have found that Extreme Auto does all repair and maintenance work quicker and less expensive. Extreme Auto always has time for me.


-Keith Curtis

Not knowing anything about cars or car repairs, I have worried that other shops were taking advantage of me. Extreme Auto was different. They took care of my questions and gave me my worse case scenario bid, and there were no surprieses. They even had my car done the same day I brought it in.


-Tracy Foster

They know what they are doing and had my car ready really fast and cheap!


-Andy Flowers

Trudy at the front desk was wonderful. I took my Mom's car in to be inspected. When it didn't pass, they charged me 1/2 price and offered to have me bring it in a few days later and have it retested, which I did. It flunked again. Jr was very patient and suggested that I drive the car 30 miles and come back again. Third time was a charm! I appreciate it their Customer Service and their professional demeanor. 5 stars. I'll take the car there again.


-Solo Male

They are fantastic! Always helpful and honest. Good prices. quick service!


-TaSheena Ballard

Extreme Auto is an honest, dependable, trustworthy, cost-effective choice for car repair. I've taken my cars to Extreme Auto for more than four years, after they were recommended to me by an auto parts store. Even more than their expertise with cars, I value their ability to advise me regarding possible solutions to my car problems. They tailor their recommendations to me, to my personal situation. They hire the very best people; from their innovative and effective mechanics to the wonderfully efficient and sensitive receptionist. It's nice to have someone understand the frustrations and stress of having a car not work. Here is the bottom line: Extreme Auto is worth your trust. They will find a way to solve your car repair problems. Extreme Auto has the mechanics and staff you are looking for. Problem solved.


-Jill Gerrish

I've dealt with Extreme Auto twice, and I am very impressed with them. I had a broken head gasket in my Ford Ranger. I shopped around and found that their prices were comparable to other mechanics. They did a great job. I have had no further problems with my truck, and it has been three years now. The other time, my wife went in with a check engine light on her Honda Civic. They ran a diagnostic check, and told her it was just a gas cap problem, replaced the gas cap, and sent her on her way. Very honest I would recommend.
