Relatively new to Savannah, and have been looking for a good shop to take my vehicles to. Word of mouth pointed me towards RPM, and my experience today sealed the deal. I will not be going anywhere else.Full disclosure... I'm a guy that tries to do whatever he can on his own cars, but sometimes going to a place with things like lifts, air tools, and the like is better than busting my own knuckles in the driveway. I'm quite mechanically oriented, which helps when selecting and using a shop for jobs I can't (or don't want to) do myself.To start... Everything in RPM's facility is CLEAN! The waiting area is spotless with free soda and coffee, and there is a huge window overlooking the service bay that didn't have a single fingerprint on it. Nice furniture, TONS of magazines, and there's a couple places (Zaxby's, BK and McDs, and a few others) within walking distance for grub if you're waiting for your car.Jason, the service advisor, was more than accommodating. I came in on a budget to have work done on a car that I am selling, and was more than willing to allow me to source parts from a local Advance Auto, as there was a significant cost difference between them and his supplier (they recommended I do this, as they don't have the ability to buy retail parts, yet realized it'd save me $). Grabbed the parts myself, and they were more than happy to put them in.Nate, the tech that worked on my car, was awesome! He took me out to the service bay and showed me exactly what was wrong with my car. He was understanding about letting me leave with the car briefly to save $100 out of pocket on parts, and jumped right back on it when I returned. He was on point, cordial, and professional.The best thing? The "book time" for my job (subframe bushings on a Chrysler Concorde) was 2.5 hours. I was quoted around $225 in labor for the job. That said, Nate finished the job in around half the time (including having to use a torch to undo a rusty bolt), and at a total cost of $125. Amazing!I've been to a LOT of shops over the years, and have never seen this standard of service. To put it simply, I'm blown away. As a car guy myself, THIS is how to run a shop.Don't fear coming here... They'll do you right.
The two things I hate worse than anything in the world is to have to visit the dentist and take my car in for repair. Going to the dentist was always pretty scary until I found someone I could trust. The same applies to my mechanic. I have finally found someone who doesn't take advantage and puts honor above money. After being told by a couple of my good backyard mechanicking buddies that I needed some major work done for a problem I was having, I compared prices and took my car to Savannah AutoWorx for the needed repair. I was informed the problem was simply a minor adjustment that needed to be fixed and not the doomsday prophecy my friends had foretold. Now I can depend on my car once again and the cost was not outrageous. Finding a good mechanic is like finding a good dentist - you don't wanta go, but if you must, then please let it be as painless as possible. Thank you Savannah Autoworx for your good quality, friendliness, and topnotch expertise.
After reading the great reviews, I decided to make the trip over to Faiths. First of all, finding it was difficult due tot he fact that there is no signage. Upon entering the property, you drive over a "field" of used tires, stacked and marked with their sizes. I was greeted by a man who asked what size tires I needed. After telling him 235/75/15 he walked me to a small stack of 4-5 tires, which, frankly all looked much worse than those tires I was looking to replace. The price was $35 per tire + mounting and balancing. He said, those are what I have, see if you like any of them. I knew immediately this was not working. I thanked him and headed towards my vehicle. He called to me asking if I was interested in "tube"tires. I smiled and, after petting the very friendly cat who patrolled the grounds, waved goodbye.Perhaps others have had better luck at Faiths. I headed over to Walmart and for $68 bought brand new tires.

I have not been involved in very many auto accidents during my lifetime. However, when it came to fixing my 2012 Toyota Camry, Hernandez Collision Center did an AMAZING job! The car was returned to me and looks brand new again. I couldn't have had a better experience. The staff at Hernandez Collision Center are very knowledgeable when it comes to dealing with the insurance companies. The car was done in a timely manner, and during the pickup process, I didn't have to pay a dime out of my pocket. I have peace of mind that my car was repaired correctly. Chris Stevens/Pooler, GA
