First Class Halt
We have been going to Mark and the guys for awhile now. We first started going there after my wife (we) got ripped off by a local Honda dealer in Greenville. We have been very pleased, no we have been extremely satisfied with the service that we have received from Mark and the First class H.A.L.T crew.Whenever my wife feels or senses that something is wrong with her van, without hesitation she calls Mark for advice or to set up an appointment for service. I rest assure that she will be treated ferly, with respect, and never get ripped off like she did with..... that Honda dealer in Greenville!About a year ago I bought my son his first car; A 2001 Honda Accord. We took it to Mark after I purchased it. I wish that I had taken it to him first, but after going over the car with a magnifying glass and checking it out, Mark brought us into his office, sat us down, and gave us the very detailed bad news and then he went over step by step of what needed to be fixed first (Most dangerous to our son safety, the car, and others if not fixed soon). Then second, third and so on and so on till he got down to what could be delayed for a later date. He gave us a print out and priced every thing separately.We did not have the money to do it all at once so Mark broke it down into small sections that we could afford.Proud to say today we finished the list and my son's car runs as good and as smooth as it did when it first drove off the assembly line.I will never take our Hondas anywhere else but to Mark and the guys @ First Class H.A.L.T! Love the service, love the atmosphere... love the treatment of being a valued customer and friend, but most of all; I love the fact that my family's cars will be fixed right and correctly the first time.... EVERYTIME!Thank God for such a honest and experience company!

I am a disabled widow, and like many women in my position we are pretty much targets for disreputable businesses to try and make a quick buck. I myself am very leery of these type people, since there are more of them than decent HONEST PEOPLE. I was in a terrible bind with my vehicle, repairs could not have come at a worst time for me. But due to the kindness and understanding of Connie, as well as Roxanne and the owner they went above and beyond just normal service. They really did me a kindness that took me by surprise. I was treated with the utmost respect as well as made to feel right at home with them. True my repair total was not chump change in anyone's mind, but everything is not about money or at least that is my philosophy. I am in no position to purchase a new vehicle and feel blessed to have the one I have. I also am not a mechanic, and yes at the mercy to a degree of tradesmen, but I was kept up to date with everything involving the repairs, they even allowed me to leave my car at the shop, locked up in their garage at no extra charge ie: storage fee. My car is running great, I am pleased, I just hope it lasts til I CAN manage to replace it. So, if you are a person of modest means for what ever reason I have no other choice than to highly recommend Greenville Auto. I will be returning for maintenance and feel I have made 2 new girl friends to boot !! You cannot buy kindness and trust read the reviews, give them a call, it will not cost a dime. Thanks guys for being there when I was pretty much desperate.

Took my vehicle in for brake and tire service. The service guy is very rude and made a smart comment saying my dad who originally did my brakes probably didn't know what he was doing, which is a crock because my dad has been a mechanic for 50 years..but he recently had went out of town and my brake light was coming on so I decided it couldn't wait until he got back, so the way he talked to me was ridiculous and unprofessional. I didn't feel comfortable with the way he was describing tires to me , his tone was like a know it all. He interrupted me every chance he got. I needed my brake work done so I went ahead with it, but decided to get my tires with a family company, browns tire and muffler, because they are patient and honest and have way better prices. Hate I couldn't wait to get brakes done because I would've if I could've.

First Class Halt
Here's my story. I was on my way home from a week's vacation, and my 2001 Toyota Landcruiser broke down in Greenville, SC. Naturally, it was on a Saturday night and no garages were open, and in addition the problem was some where in the drive train. So, I needed a "real" mechanic. I called First Class H.A.L.T. at 8a on Sunday morning and Mark answered the phone and discussed the problem with me. I left my car at his shop on Sunday (filled with my all of my luggage and the items taken on vacation), and he repaired it for me, without ever actually meeting me. In summary, the repair work was "first class" and the price was fair. His shop is extremely clean, and he and his employees are very knowledgeable and professional. He saved this weary traveler. My only regret is that he is not located in Atlanta.

Mike Willimon's Towing & Recovery Inc
I was incredibly nervous when I saw the reviews for here (after my car had already been towed by them after a wreck). I called yesterday and they gave me the pricing information ($200 for the tow, $29 storage per night it was there.) I agreed to sign the car over to them in lieu of paying for the tow since the car was totaled. When I got there this morning, everyone was incredibly kind and helpful towards me. I don't know if my experience was so much better than the other reviews on here (and other websites) because I did not deal with the money aspect at all, or if there's new management or different staff - but my experience was wonderful and it was incredibly relieving after my wreck.

The worse service I got. Bought 4 new Perillie tires week later 1 tire went flat took it back to Sears they couldn't find any leak,ask them for a refund or exchange told me I did not insure the tires,lol well they never asked me to start with. Went home find put they never put my Rim back to my car. The next day bought a New tire called to Sears to get it installed since they had the Rim they told me can't put tires if not bought from them. I had to drive all the way just to pick my Rim,highly pissed, now I am on my way to Discount Tires and they are highly professional and very cordial. No more Sears!

Robinson Roadside Assistance & Repair, LLC
Took my car here after taking it to SEVERAL other shops who could not figure out what was wrong with it. I had spent $100s with these other guys, and getting no where. Not only did Robinsons figure out my issue in no time, but they diagnosed it for FREE!!!! My issue was in my front end, and they fixed it right up, and now my car is driving perfect again. They also gave me a major warranty and some free roadside stuff. I will never go anywhere else. PS - I will be bringing my moms car to you next week for a tune up.

I RECENTLY PURCHASED A USED FREESTYLE FROM BALDWIN AUTOMOTIVE AND GOT A GREAT DEAL. NOT LONG AFTER I BOUGHT IT I HAD PROBLEMS WITH MY VEHICLE. THE SERVICE MANGER JOHN JR. WAS EXTREMELY HELPFUL, THE WARRANTY I PURCHASED WITH MY VEHICLE COVERED MY PROBLEMS, AND I ONLY HAD TO PAY MY $100 DEDUCTIBLE. THEY EVEN GAVE ME MY FIRST SERVICE FOR FREE. I LOVE DOING BUSINESS WITH BALDWIN AUTOMOTIVE I WILL CONTINUE TO BRING MY VEHICLE BACK FOR ROUTINE MAINTENANCE AND WILL SHOP THERE FIRST FOR A NEW VEHICLE

Burns Automotive
It's rare when you come across a business that offers a unique combination of quality, value and efficiency, but Burns is one of those places. TJ is talented, but he will also refer you out if he isn't the best to do a particular job. Burns is a business that is the backbone of America. We should do all we can to be a regular customer of his. I rarely write reviews, but in this instance I have to acknowledge great quality and customer care when I see it.

Ken's Auto Shop
Ken is an awesome and knowledgeable mechanic and no job is too big or small that he can't fix. He is honest and will not over charge you for repairs like other places. I completely trust him, how often can you say that about a mechanic. He has replaced my brake pads and rotors for half the cost that others quoted me. My car's braking system works perfectly and has for over a year now. You don't need to go anywhere else - he is the best at what he does.
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
