St George Auto Repair did a fantastic job on my wheel bearing and driver front axle on my 1999 Chevrolet Prizm. It was quick (2 hours), easy and affordable. They could have repaired the boot on my axle but the labor would have been more so they recommended a new axle. (By the way, it's like I'm driving on a cloud now. It's so smooth. There's a little thrumming in the passenger axle that is occasional and I can't wait to come back and have them do it too!) Choosing a new axle was cheaper and came with anything else that could have worn out. We talked it out and despite all my study, long effort, and work in the car industry he still had more to teach me. I'm a Do It Yourself kind of guy. I've only had 2 repairs by going to a mechanic for 8 years on any of my older vehicles. So when I give them an A plus you can tell that I really mean it. They're personable. The customers they attract are great people too.

We moved here a year and a half ago or so. Having an old Lexus with 200,000 miles on it, I needed to find a good auto shop and mechanic I could trust. Not always an easy task. A neighbor recommended St. George auto repair. I took my car in for a tune up. My initial "trust" test is based on a couple things. I asked if they ever worked for the IRS (if the answer is no), then I go to step 2 and check their shop. If the shop is kept clean, and the mechanic takes care of his tools, then I'm good to go.The tune up was done. My old car has run great ever since. Have had a couple other things done (alignment, tire balancing, front end work), all at a fair cost and with good results.You have to have a good local auto shop you can trust and I have found that with Dave and Eric at St. George Auto Repair. Good guys you can trust with your car repairs.

guys here are faithful and honest, I was traveling through the city and I felt worry about the brakes, the wheel started shaking whenever I push the brake , then I decided to stop by any auto repairs to check on the brake pads , and I went to this place, the man on the cashier told me after he checked out the car that I don't need to change the brake pads . and the wheel just shaking because of the hot weather. He could change the pads and take 110$ but he didn't because he is faithful.

My wife was traveling alone through southern Utah and her car over heated. She was able to get to St, George and to St, George Auto Repair just before they closed. The guys were great and made sure she got to her hotel safely. The next morning, they quickly repaired the problem and got her on her way. I can't say enough about how professional and helpful they were and it was very much appreciated!

We are from out of town and brought our car that had over heated to this shop, they were very helpful, and honest. We happen to meet the owner, he was super friendly and does his best to make sure he runs a reputable business... We were grateful to have our car repaired honestly, and in the least expensive way possible. If you are in need of help away from home- these guys are a pretty safe bet.

I have been going good to St George Auto Repair since they opened and I have had Dave work on all my vehicles since we moved here in 2008. I personally feel they are the mist honest repair shop in town. They have had MANY opportunities to take advantage of me or family members and they never have. If you need an honest opinion or repairs I promise you can't go wrong with St George Auto Repair.

I have a saab that has been having some trouble for awhile now. After going to two other auto repair places St George Auto Repair got it right. The car is running well and it did not cost an arm and a leg.

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.
