Bartlett, Automotive
Came in here one Saturday, ( one of the only good mechanics open on Saturday). My car was making a really obnoxious noise that had gone from bad to worse. About 10 a.m. that day my car's lights started to flicker. Fortunately for me, I was able to get on this website and discover Bartlett Automotive. Before this I had called another well-known Memphis mechanic shop. They suggested that it could be my alternator and quoted me a seriously ridiculous fee over the phone. I won't say the name of this place, but, it starts with a G. Their price seemed way over the top, so I started to explore my options. Obviously it was important to find a place that is open on Saturdays. At this point I started exploring my options and just happened upon Bartlett Automotive. I called and they seemed really nice and professional on the phone. This helped when I decided to try them out. Turns out that I was just able to make it there before my alternator gave out. Kenny ( the owner), and his wife (Micky) were as nice as could be and I could sense that all they wanted to do was help me get back on the road. If that wasn't enough Kenny quoted me a price, part and all, that was less than half of that other place. Needless to say, I was extremely glad that I was able to find this shop, and in the future, I will not hesitate to take my car issues to Bartlett Automotive. In this day and age, it's really nice to find someone that you can trust with your vehicle.

My misfortune of picking up 3 nails in my front tire the other day and was after hours. I decided might as well replace both tires. I had to act quick as I commute daily on my bike. While I was not able to get my tires from this dealer, I did use them for the install. Extremely friendly Service Department. Dropped bike off at 11am. Went to bank and to lunch and popped in at 12:30 and picked it up. They got right on it as they promised. Have just returned to serious biking in the last year and started going here for service issues. One day I will purchase another new bike and this will be my first stop to get one' Read less My misfortune of picking up 3 nails in my front tire the other day and was after hours.

By far this is the friendliest, best staffed, and most professional motorcycle dealer in Memphis. Ben is a salesperson on the floor who has always spent time with me discussing the aspects of the bikes I like, and even after I have said I would not be buying for a while. This is great as I feel welcome there and know that I will be greeted by a staff that has the knowledge and truly seems to enjoy their jobs. At some of the competitors I did not receive anything close to this professional and upbeat reception. It was also reassuring that a mechanic I talked to on his break said their service window stays the same year round as far as wait time while down the street I was told by a competitor it would be three weeks before they could look at my bike since it was summer. While I have not bought a bike there yet as I have always had used bikes, and after four years in Memphis riding and seeking out parts and advice as well as service, there is no doubt Honda/Yamaha on Mt. Moriah is the place I am given the most respect as a walk in customer. They also have easily the most bikes on the floor and the biggest service garage of any dealer in the 901 Memphis zip code. To me this is the place to buy a bike in town.

Bartlett, Automotive
Finally a trustworthy mechanic! I have the worst luck trying to find one but not today. I went to three different places to put on a power steering hose that I already had in my hand. Yes, a power steering hose, simple right? The three places I went to all got on their happy computer to look up some magical program that gives them an estimated time to put parts on a car. I forget the program name but they all said, 2 1/2 to 4 hour job and $250-$400 estimate, yes for a hose install. I told them where they could shove that hose! I decided to stop into Bartlett auto and I could tell right away these guyz meant business and not scam thy customer. They put the part on and oil change for very reasonable price. A salesman came in to sell his company's "parts business"(a company that sells parts to repair shops) and the owner explained that he has two different customers, ones that can(Bartlett) afford the warranty parts and one's that can't(Frayser) and he lets them decide what to choose from which is awesome, most would try to up sell you the warranty parts even if you are poor like me. They just got a new customer and I would recommend to a friend!

Midtown Autowerks
If you have a foreign (or domestic) vehicle that you love & value, and you're looking for the best quality mechanic in Memphis, then this REALLY is the only review you need to read! Before I took my LandRover to Shane, Nick,& the other guys at Midtown Autowerks, I had mechanical issues that lasted for a ridiculous time period of 6 weeks! I thought I would save $ by letting other mechanics address my overheating issues. A few mechanics and $850.00 (of wasted money) later, I decided it was time to turn my wheel over to someone who really knows what they're doing! They were so professional,& reassuring:) after a very stressful 6 weeks, I left my vehicle there with a feeling of trust in their mechanic abilities. And my instincts were correct! Not only did they repair my blown head gaskets, but they also cleaned the stop-leak gunk from my radiator and hoses. Apparently someone had put it in there prior to me purchasing the vehicle. In just a few days, Shane and his team got me & my daughter back on the road!:D I will never let anyone else under my hood!!! Thankyou so much Shane!!!

Elite Service Automotive
We were about to make a cash purchase of a Lexus LS460L that was very attractive and appeared well taken care of. The owner of the vehicle had been an avid Elite customer and we mutually agreed to drop off the vehicle with Elite Automotive to have a pre-purchase inspection performed. I agreed to pay for the inspection and communicated to the seller that I would communicate with Elite Automotive myself about the inspection. Several hours after the vehicle was dropped off I received a call from Elite. The company owner personally contacted me to advise me that the vehicle had significant sub-frame damage. This damage was only visible as the result of an extensive inspection not normally consider part of a pre-purchase inspection. We have nothing but gratitude to the staff of Elite for their integrity, and for placing their reputation above all else. We have since become devoted and satisfied customers. Elite Automotive has extremely well qualified technicians, that you can trust with your high end vehicle needs.

El Primo
Mike was not only willing to accommodate us, he even called us back after about 5-10 minutes just to ensure we were OK. Phenomenal!!! He is a true professional and really takes pride in his chosen profession. Once we got to the shop Mike and his staff greeted us with a smile; which gave us that extra assurance that he really does care about his customers and their needs. There WAS NOT a long wait and the tire was ready and tested for leaks quickly. His price ($$) was the best I've found thus far in all of Bartlett, Memphis, or Shelby County for that matter. Easy on the wallet or pocket book. After completion, Mike provided us with a large plastic bag to cover the area I was going to place the tire so that it would not dirty the back seat of my vehicle. You can't beat that kind of service. We wholeheartedly give our endorsement of El Primo under the management of Mike and his staff. "If you want it done RIGHT...for the right Price...come to MIKE!!!"

Wolfchase Hyundai
I just purchased a new 2016 Hyundai Tuscon. I had the pleasure of working primarily with Steve Bizon. I highly recommend him and this dealership - working with him felt like working with a friend more than working with a salesperson. There was no pressure, he worked with me on my sales price, and he made sure I got all the bells and whistles I was looking for. Steve was very helpful and very thorough. I also worked with Young Lee (the sales manager) and PT (I forget his last name) in finance. Both were very well-informed, and PT also made the finance part of the deal easy and without a lot of pressure. I get that they are salespeople and trying to make a living, but I really appreciate that the guys I worked with at Wolfchase Hyundai recognized that I was informed and were willing to work with me to get a great deal on the exact car (features, accessories, color, etc) I wanted.

I was on the hunt for a new vehicle in November. As soon as I walked on to the lot and met David, he went above and beyond in helping me find my perfect car. He wasn't your average cheesy, fake car sales man. He was patient and understanding, as well keeping the experience light and fun. He made sure to find the best deal, working endlessly with Sam, the finance manager, in getting me the ultimate best deal for my financial situation. Sam was amazing as well. He worked and worked with banks to find me the right rates. He explained things into common language understanding, provided me with the information I needed to understand what I was getting into and any extra protection I may need for my vehicle. Both Sam and David followed up with me weeks later asking how I was enjoying my vehicle and if I had any questions.

Elite Service Automotive
The Memphis roads can be rough on my car. The car dealership service can be rough on my wallet. Then I found Elite Service Automotive. They were clear in their service pricing and extremely competitive. They listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. They were very patient (since I sometimes can be difficult) and provided great customer service. They repaired my car in the time frame they promised it would be done and it drives like a luxury car again. This is the best option I have found for servicing my Lexus and it's a plus that the mechanic is Lexus certified. I would definitely recommend anyone driving a Lexus give Elite Service Automotive an opportunity for their car service needs. I know I will be using them again and again. Thanks a bunch!!!...
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.
