John, the owner here always here is always so friendly and doesn't try to oversell you on items you don't need. I have been taking my vehicles to him since I was 17 and all my family continue to count on John and his staff to keep our vehicles running in great and reliable condition. He has on several occasions found things that other mechanics miss from other shops for my friends and myself. Personally, toyota told me while having recall work done that I have two oil leaks that were in need of repair, totaling $850, I ended up taking my car to them and not only did he find the source of the leak, he fixed it for $160 total, less than the oil pan which he was going to do for me twice that. He is honest and thats what you really want in a mechanic. He uses genuine auto parts from the dealers themselves, not putting junk like some tire places do that wears out a year or two later.

My husband and myself have lived in Port Charlotte for over 40 years. We have had our share of automobile problems and just could not find anyone that we could trust with our vehicles, until we found Bill. Bill is one of the most honest mechanics we know, he tells you how it is and does not try to make more of a situation. He is very fare with his prices and gets the job done. He treats us with respect and goes out of his way to make the problem easier for us. We HIGHLY recommend him for your mechanical problems, you will not be disappointed.

My first visit to this area and I break the mirror off my drivers side door, my car starts making this awful noise. Not knowing the area I asked some locals and without hesitation was given Biil's name and info. I went was overwhelmed with the quality of service and the overall way I was treated. Most women hate to go to mechanics because they are generally talked down to. Not with Bill, he explained exactly what was wrong what needed to be fixed and within no time had me on the road. I couldn't be happier with my experience.

I am writing this review because reasonable automotive was a life saver. All I can say is he was affordable reliable honest efficient he got the work on my car done really quickly and I am so happy I found him. To have a honest place to bring my car and my children's cars takes a lot of stress off of me. I would recommend anyone to go to his business and be taken care of the way they should be. I cannot thank him enough for what he did.

I wasn't sure what mechanic to go to and sometimes it's hard to find someone you can trust to guarantee great services at a good price, Bill did just that. From great customer service and communication during the vehicles progress, I never had a reason to doubt. My boyfriend sometimes helps with my car and said he was VERY reasonable and would pay him to do it instead of doing it himself. Will be going to again and referring others too.

Complete Auto Repair
We are seasonal residents in North Port, FL., 2 winters ago our car had problems and we didn't know who to take it to. Looking in the yellow pages we tried "Complete Auto Repair". After that we have gone to them for other matters...from oil change and fixing the upper part of the front of the bumper. They are up front people (Jim Bobenchik), and we would recommend and trust them with our cadillacs. Thanks !!! Bob P.

We had a chance to have some work done by these people not too long ago. A 2005 Ford Explorer that needed an engine replaced, brakes, struts, and rear end repaired. The work was excellent and there has been no problems whatsoever with the work they did. I would let them do work on my truck or car anytime.Thank you, Cliff & Becky Arnold Live Oak, Florida

With no prior history with us, the people at Charlotte Harbor Exhaust repaired our exhaust system for a low cost and had it finished in less than one hour. Our first option was to replace the entire exhaust system at the car dealer for thousands of dollars. I recommend this business to everyone in the areas in and near Port Charlotte.The correct phone number is 941-743-0529.

Took my car in today with a broken tailpipe. They took the car right in and repaired the pipe, didn't try to sell me an exhaust system, didn't try to talk me into replacing things like the tail pipes, mufflers or things I didn't need. I appreciate their honesty and reasonable pricing for repairs. I recommend this shop if you need exhaust repairs made to your vehicle.
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.
