We had a engine light on for several years. No one could figure it out, not even the dealer. I was referred to Chuck Coat by an honest mechanic who deserves a great review as well, who said he would fix it without "raking me over the coals" . Now honest mechanics are hard to find and worth their weight in gold, but and honest mechanic that can accurately diagnose a problem is worth his weight in diamonds. He fixed the problem in a day and it was something I feel all the others should have found and it cost less than a night at the movies with the family. 5 stars is not enough. If you can't figure it out, this is the place to go.

I took my 2005 Chevrolet truck to three auto repair shops in Gulfport and none of them could fix my truck. I was recommended to Chuck Coats Automotive by several people so I finally decided to take it to him. My truck had an intermittent running problem that even the local General Motors dealership could not find. I took my truck to Chuck early one morning and he found the problem and called me within a few hours. He repaired my truck for less than I expected, gave me a nationwide warranty and was very friendly. I told my sister about his service and she took her Nissan in for service and was well pleased !

All I can say is this is THE BEST place to get you car fixed. I took my 99' Chevy Silverado there after being overpriced at another shop. My fuel pump was blown and had to have it replaced! The price he gave me was WONDERFUL! This is a HIGHLY recommended place and a VERY respectable place to go! I can't thank Chuck enough for the wonderful deal he gave me and I was able to make it back home to New Orleans safely! I am definitely taking the trip back to get any more work done!

Great Service! Took my Honda to Chuck Coats Auto. He was very nice and helpful. When I went to pick up my car, I was AMAZED to find that not only was it now running GREAT!, but it cost me less than he had originally quoted me! As a woman, I am usually leery about car repair facilities. I have found the one to trust! WOW~Thank You Chuck Coats Automotive for making it a much less painful experience!:)

Not only was the work phenomenal but Mr Coats went above and beyond to make sure our car pulled out of his shop (quote) "running smooth like butter." He had my new transmission in my car in a day. The price was RIGHT!!! Will go again and again. If you want your car fixed correctly the first time than don't waste time CALL!!!

I locked my keys in my car the other day at the beach. I was freaking out and trying to pry open my already smashed in door with random sticks i found. Richard Bachtel passed me up and like an angel he came to the rescue and unlocked my door. It was very cheap and i would recommend him to everyone.

Good people. I had car troubles while passing through Gulfport. I was in a position where I could have been taken advantage of financially, but Robin was great and very reasonable. He even contacted my mechanic in Atlanta. He got me back on the road and I made it back to Atlanta safely.

I was very impressed with the repsponse time and the professional, friendly service. I locked my keys in my car and was back on the road in 30 minutes. I also called several others and this was the best price in town.
Tips & Advices
Using a variety of tools and processes, many of which require specialized training, auto body mechanics primarily repair cosmetic and structural damage to vehicles after accidents occur. They can also enhance a vehicle’s appearance and performance by replacing and adding new parts to a vehicle’s body.
This depends on the severity of the work that needs to be done. Something such as paintless dent repair for a few small dents can take an hour. Whereas auto body repairs for damages caused by a major accident can take multiple days to correct.
All auto body parts can be repaired but there is a threshold for the level of repairs possible. Parts can be damaged beyond repair and would need to be wholly replaced.
Auto body parts can be made from a wide variety of materials, usually based on what the part’s purpose is. Vehicle frames body panels, bumpers, roof racks, and other items that need to be strong and durable are usually constructed from steel, which is known for its durability and resistance to rust and high temperatures. But aluminum is quickly becoming a popular material of construction due to its lightweight yet durable nature. Body kits and other aftermarket parts like spoilers and hoods can be constructed from one form of plastic or another.
Yes, the vast majority of car makes and models have aftermarket parts available for many of their components. But higher-end vehicles typically have less aftermarket parts available since they often use specialized materials and manufacturing processes that are difficult to duplicate for many aftermarket manufacturers.
