Client <strong><em>Testimonials</em></strong>

1st off forest automotive is the most reliable place with awesome customer service prices are fair these r nice people to do BUSSINESS with no price gouging no rip offs and very respectful people I wouldn't take my care anywhere else.

These guys are the greatest-- Old World mechanics who know what they are doing and CARE about excellence. Their no frills shop is filled with knowledge you can't easily find and they don't quit until it's just right. Fair prices, excellent communication and service, HONESTY!! They have worked on our old camp truck to keep it going against all odds, my Toyota Corolla, and my 1964 Dodge that is running as if LBJ was president! Perfect! I've been going to Scottie and the fellas for at least 5 years, and I won't be going to anyone else.

I've had two experiences with this shop. Both were FABULOUS. With the first experience, they came to my house to get the keys from my wife (our car wouldn't start) because we have children, and sometimes it's hard to get away. Talk about customer service! With the second experience, they spent time diagnosing a faulty ignition coil. That coil was under warranty with another shop, so I took it to the other shop. I paid Forest Automotive the diagnostic fee, which I expected to pay (they put in time, after all). The other shop came up with a different diagnosis. When I called Forest Automotive to tell them this, they said they stood by their diagnosis, but they offered to refund the entire diagnostic fee anyway. I offered to split the difference, but they insisted that they refund the entire fee. That's integrity, and integrity is probably the most important quality of a mechanic. Forest Automotive will definitely be getting our business in the future!
