Friendly atmosphere – My fiancee's car was due for a timing belt, I took it to two other local shops before stopping by Groovy at their north Lamar location. After spending some time talking with their technician Jerimy I felt confident they knew what they were doing. The total job was ~ $400.00, the other two shops wanted close to $600.00 for the same repair. I rarely recommend businesses however I would send my mom to Groovy. Keep up the good work!
saved me alot of money – my 1998 jeep cherokee was in need of a new on board computer. took it to the dealer and got what i felt was an extremely over priced quote. Long story short about a month later after not having the repairs made at the dealer. My vehicle became almost impossable to drive so i took it to Groovy to get a second quote before back to the dealer. However i was told that the cost at Groovy would be almost $300.00 cheaper. I had to wait a couple of days for the part but was worth two days of public trans. to save$300.00. they have my buisness
not just another automotive repair shop – this place is great! i have used Groovy a few times and the repairs made to my Honda by Moon have always been right on. Moon has helped me keep my old car running great. I have had some concerns with the prices in the past but after checking around i have found Groovy to be comparable when comparing the whole package. Groovy rocks they have my business.
great service – i have been looking for a local repair shop that i felt comfortable doing business with for some time. I have found it with Groovy Automotive on Red river, above and beyond my expectations.
EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE – I've been using Groovy for years, and have never had a single problem. they have fixed all my families cars for a fair price for the last 8 years. they are good guys
Groovy Auto on Red River F’N ROCKS!! – Daniel “DOC” Green is the best. He is a real mechanic with INTEGERITY.
He knows how much I love my little car and how much it means to me that is just had its 200K birthday. Over the years he has replaced a few worn out parts and with some routine maintenance, Daniel keeps my car driving like it did the day I bought it. He has never been too busy to explain what needs to be fixed now and what is showing wear and tear for later. He is PATIENT, HELPFUL, HONEST, and KNOWLEDGEABLE.
I also get my car inspected at Groovy on Red River. This has never taken more then ½ an hour and the office staff is always friendly.

HORRIBLE! – Horrible experience!! I took my Honda Civic to "groovy" to have my timing belt done and not only did they do the work wrong they ruined my engine!!! Ouch! So, I took my Civic back to them too see if they would honor their work and not only did they NOT honor their work, but they wanted more money to fix what they broke!!!! JERKS! Do NOT USE or you will be riding the bus!
this post is totally bogus as the general manager i have went back and checked and have found no such problem existing. in my opinion this is another shop working to discredit Groovy if i am wrong i ask that this person call me and we will right the wrong. i have customers call me with issues from time to time and all have been handled. I am not saying we are perfect but we do stand behind our work.
Daniel - The best mechanic! – I am not vouching for the Groovy Lube on Guadalupe - they are OK for an oil change, but their repair recommendations can be questionable. But, I have been taking cars and referring friends to Daniel at the Red River location for years and years. He always fixes my car right the first time, gives me a heads-up on anything getting worn and even gave me suggestions when I was shopping for a new car. His recommendation was so good - I rarely see him these days! It is a great feeling to trust your mechanic
Overcharge and Provide Unequal Service – There are few things worse than having to spend a few hundred dollars you've worked hard to save up on a car problem that's unexpected and beyond your control. One of those things is learning after the fact that you were overcharged. In this case, there were some problems with my brakes that I paid about $500 to Groovy Automotive this weekend to have fixed. I've since learned from 3 different people who are more knowledgeable about cars than I that there is no way a problem with brakes should ever cost that much. I was recommended Groovy Automotive by my boyfriend who feels he's always received good service and reasonable prices from them which, combined with the other reviews I've read about them has me convinced that Groovy Automotive feels that women, on account of their being women, deserve to pay more for car repairs than men. I know this isn't surprising for an automotive repair place, but it's still damned infuriating."
With six master mechanics working for Groovy you would be hard pressed to find more knowledge. There are allot of brake problems that will cost more than $500.00. Groovy will and has employed women as well as men, and 68% of our clients are women. if there is a problem this person would like to discuss please contact the general manager of Groovy Automotive.
Best automotive shop in town – I have been taking my car to Groovy Automotive for years, and I have always been treated GREAT. As a female, I used to be nervous about taking my car to get fixed, but the guys at Groovy walk me through everything and have saved me money every time I've taken it in. I love doing business with local companies, and I will always go there. Thanks Groovy for the good work and honesty!
