Pete's Foreign Otto Shop
Great service at a fair price. My wife and I were traveling home from Florida to St. Louis in our BMW X3, when we broke down on the interstate 30 miles south of Valdosta. We did an internet search, and decided to take a chance on Pete's Otto. I'm so glad we did.Tiger (the owner) sent a wrecker to get us, and it was there within an hour. He took our car in immediately (and was obviously busy with many BMWs, Mercedes, Land Rovers and Porches in his shop). He gave us an estimate (I expected to pay at least $1,000 - it was $435 including the tow). I verified with my friend in the auto repair business that this was a more than fair price. Tiger had us back on the road within two hours. Tiger also let us use his personal vehicle to go get some lunch while the repairs were being done.I am so glad that there are still some businesses that treat people right. He could have easily taken advantage of our situation (we were at his mercy), but he didn't. He knows we won't be back, because we live out of the area. He just treats people right.

Pete's Foreign Otto Shop
I was pleasantly pleased with my experience at Pete's Foreign Otto Shop. Everyone that I interacted with was very polite and helpful. Fortunately, I didn't need anything major fixed (my Volvo's message center was telling me it was due for maintenance...even though I had all the routine maintenance done just four weeks ago prior to moving here from Wyoming). I also had a bulb that needed to be replaced that I couldn't do on my own because the air filter's housing unit was in the way (and needed a special tool to unhook the clips to remove the unit and get access to the bulb). The gentleman that helped me (I don't recall his name but I believe it was Andy/Andrew....something with an "A") reset the message, checked to make sure there weren't any other codes that needed to be addressed, and replaced the bulb right away. He had me on my way faster than I anticipated. I will definitely be back if I have any future issues with my vehicle. Thanks Pete's Otto!!!

Gary's Automotive Repair
I was broke down in an RV on I 75 near Valdosta Ga. On a Saturday evening. Everything closed . Good Sam club said I'd have to wait till Monday to get any service done. A guy stopped to pick up something that blew off his jeep. Said he might know someone and would give him my number and drove off. Never really expected to hear anything. Travis from "Gary's automotive" called later, came to the rv park where we were towed and had repairs done in less than an hour, including going after the parts himself! ( camshaft timing sensor). Very professional, courteous and all round good guy. Left his family after dinner to come save our vacation. Thanks Travis! You too Rodney����

I am Tiger Berard. The owner of Pete's Otto. I would like to defend the accusations made by Brandeb S, as being totally wrong. Brenden tried to get his car back in our shop at a later date, for additional repairs through a friend of his. I instructed this person of this claim on YP, and agreed to work on his car again.With the agreement that I could explain my side of the story with him. I never received a call from Brenden. We are honest and pride ourselves in doing quality repairs. Brenden, you are still welcome to call me at any time. Thanks Pete's son Tiger Berard

My truck wouldn't turn over when I tried to crank it. I just put a new battery in and it didn't sound like the starter. When she had her Tech look at she thought it would take them two days to fix it. I told her that I need to get back home, 2.5 hours away, before tomorrow. She kept the opened an extra hour after they were suppose to close. Once I got there to pick it up Mrs Judy walked me through the receipt and the Tech showed me exactly what he did. I felt the price was fair and the service was great. Thank you Mrs. Judy for getting me home.

Walker's Auto has gone above and beyond for me as a customer and for that, Im a loyal customer. Their prices are lower than anyone and they have excellent customer service. I have been a customer since 2010 and I always gladly recommend them when I speak about auto repair. They actually treat you like family instead of customer. I leave there calling them by their name feeling like a friend instead of a customer. If you need repair, go there!!!

I drove in from out of town and noticed that my car was making a tapping sound. We googled an auto repair shop in Valdosta and chose Walkers Auto Repair thanks to all of the good reviews. They absolutely lived up to their reputation. Ms. Judy fit us in first thing in the morning. The mechanic was friendly and solved my problem right away. It's nice to actually be provided with trustworthy service nowadays. I highly recommend!

Walker's had the best customer service that I've ever seen in Valdosta Ga. The owner was very patient and kind with me and even gave me a ride to work since it was going to take awhile for my car to get fixed. I definitely recommend Walker's Auto Repair for anyone who is looking for good car service and even better customer service from the manager. I will absolutely be giving them my business from now on!

Walker's Auto Repair
With me having a show car I am really picky on who works on my car. I came in to Walkers Auto Repair here in Valdosta and they really made me feel like they was all about business and was worth the chance. Since then I bring both of my cars here for anything. I just like up front people and they were definitely that. I have recommended them to my car club and fellow service members at Moody AFB.
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.
