"I love the service and the quality of the work!!"
"I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone and .the prices are right"
Mike Sanford is a good auto mechanic! If you are like me, it is not often you can make that kind of statement these days and mean it. Mr. Sanford is very methodical in his approach and delivers on time at a good rate. No offense but with such great work I will not see you there for while. 😺
I chose to use Mike's auto shop due to the positive reviews that I have seen at Google. Most auto shops and especially the car dealerships will exaggerate "so called other problems" on your vehicle besides the reason you brought the car in for. Mike on the other hand does not do use any schemes to make you pay for unnecessary repairs. He'll work on the main problem(s) on your vehicle and advise you of recommendations on your vehicle that has a lot of mileage. I highly recommend Mike to anyone who needs their vehicle(s) to be serviced.
Went here to get an estimate on a muffler repair because of all the great reviews. Honestly, I don't know why this place has so many great reviews! The place is run down and very sketchy. When I arrived at Sanford's Automotive a guy approach me and asked "what are you here for" in a very rude manner. I told the guy I'm having problems with my muffler and wanted to get an estimate to get it fix. He asked what exactly is wrong with it, and said that "a normal muffler repair would cost a least $300". I said "I did not know what is exactly wrong with my muffler it's just keep making loud grinding noises. Then, he asked how do I know for sure it's my muffler making the loud noises? I told I took my car to a another shop before coming here, and was told that the noises were coming from my muffler. Also, told him that the other shop was trying to charge me $800 to fix it, but didn't let them because I wanted to look around to see if I could get a lower price. When I told him that he change his $300 price to more than $600 to repair my muffler. I mean the guy didn't even look at my muffler to see what was wrong with it. He basically was trying to make me pay more than he usually charge because he realized that I didn't know anything about mufflers, and saw that I was willing to spend up to $800 to get it fix . The type of service I received here was horrible enough to the point that if he did charged me $300, I still would not let him repair my muffler because I know the job wouldn't have been done right!
Mike is a one of a kind dude! Mike helped my family & I out of a major jam after breaking down on I77 on the way back home to Chatleston. I read all the reviews and thought it best to pay extra to have it towed 40 miles.
Even thought my car was towed & left after hours, Mike treated me fairly and got my repair done quickly!!
