I never felt like I was being overcharged for anything while I was getting helped out at Read's Auto.

Great Work! – Great work guys! My car is running so much more smoothly since I've left your shop. I'm glad you were able to fix the problem for so cheap. I will definitely be sending people your way.

I would reccomend to anyone!!! – I have been taking my family vehicles to Read's Automotive for years and for years they have always done a great job! Anything from routine maintanince to a serious repair. They are honest and they know what they are talking about. The prices are always within my budget and the customer service is 5 star...

Very Pleased – I am a single parent with my only trasportation being my one trusty Jeep. It needed some repair so I took it to Read's Automotive to get a safety inspection. I also knew that my AC was not blowing as hot and with summer coming I thought I should look into what is was going to cost. I figured outrageous! Well they did the inspectionand told me they would take a look at the AC. Turns out it was just a hose that needed to be fixed, they quoted me an awesome price so they went ahead an do the repair! I was very satisfied with the Repair, the price, and the Owner Alan and staff was wonderful...

AVOID: GO ELSEWHERE – Spoke with Alan/Manager/Owner regarding brake issues. He advised to bring it in; drove there with bad brakes then told there is a charge to evaluate. I don't appreciate Owner failing to disclose this and the amount up front. Will go to trustworthy auto place out of town before I return here

Vehicle was brought in for a brake inspection and customer was told it would cost $27.00 and if any brake repair was done he would not be charged for the inspection. The customer admited the brakes were done in San Antonio by his mechanic and he would drive the vehicle back to San Antonio before he paid a check out fee. I always try to tell the customer what the check out fee is over the phone and forgot. I was not trying to be dishonest to the customer in anyway.

Best Mechanics Beween Oak Hill and Dripping Springs – Allen is a straightforward, stand-up guy. I can always count on him to stand behind his shop's work, and make good on his commitments for completion. I'll second 21spurs's endorsement on the emission testing at Read's; Allen pinpointed the likely cause of a computer error giving a false emission reading. Their knowledgeable service is a huge timesaver.

Great customer service, Excellent work. – About a month ago I had the good fortune of doing business with Allen the owner of Reads automotive. The company I work for is based out of San Antonio and we use vehicles from out of state. I had some issues with 3 of my vehicles. They were registered out of state and the registration was expired. To get this issue resolved I had to have an emissions test done on all three vehicles. The closet place was at Allen

Awesome Customer Service! – I thought old-fashioned customer service was long gone. But not at Read's Automotive. Personal service going the extra mile. Amazing. My family members and I will patronize Read's Automotive for years to come. Awesome.
