I have serviced 2 of my vehicles with Joe – both VW.
Joe is extremely thorough and above all else 100% honest.
In one instance, rather than charge me for an out of warranty repair, he guided me through the process of speaking with the dealership who then replaced the faulty part – even though the car was out of the warranty period.
I cannot recommend Joe more highly and I will surely use his services for all of my vehicles.

Care, trust and honesty

For most people their car will be their second biggest investment. The machine that makes memories, takes them to memories, gets you to work, gets you to that weekend getaway and keeps them safe, so it’s natural for them to be careful when choosing a mechanic. I came to Joe on high recommendation and he displayed the utmost care and attention to my car. Explaining in great detail what needs to be done.

Judging by past reviews and briefly seeing happy customers in his shop, this is standard business practice.

Joe is now my entrusted mechanic for the cars in my family. I will be highly recommending South City Automotive.


Joe at South City Automotive Repairs is always a pleasure to deal with. He has helped me a great deal with my car issues and has always provided a great service. He’s patient and is able to explain thoroughly the work that’s been done and how issues have been resolved. Always friendly and always smiling. I couldn’t thank Joe more for the help he’s given me.

Took my car to the guys at south city as had been side swiped by a family member. They were super helpful and really approached everything from the point of view of doing the best work and keeping it at a reasonable price. I never felt they were trying to add unnecessary things to jack the price which was my experience taking it for quotes elsewhere. The work they did was amazing, the repaint looks like it’s straight out of the factory. Highly recommend these guys.
