Auto Shop Springfield
Springfield, VA 22151
Kevin is the best mechanic I have ever worked with. He has reasonable rates and will go above and beyond to make sure you get a fair deal. One time he cut out a rusted part on the bottom of my car and fused a new piece in its place. Even though it was more work for him, he didn't want me to have to pay to replaced the entire piece that runs along the bottom of the car (Sorry to be vague, but I'm not a car person at all - which is why it's so lucky I found Kevin.). One time, my car was still making strange noises the week after bringing it it. I brought it back to Kevin, he fixed something else and didn't charge me. His office/waiting area isn't anything to write home about, but he's quick, efficient and trustworthy. I also love that his main method of communicating is through text. I just text him during the week to tell him what's wrong with my car and he'll tell me when to swing by. After dropping it off, I'll walk to breakfast (Hello, Swiss Bakery!) and he'll text me when I should pick up my car. Bring your car to Kevin at Master Auto Care and thank me later.
My check engine light came on so I was looking around for local shops that will do a diagnostic test without a super pricey labor rate. I spoke to Kevin over the phone and he said it will cost me $20 bucks. It felt too good to be true since I was getting quotes for around $100. I gave it a try since there's so many good Yelp reviews and an appointment was not necessary. It was a bit confusing trying to find the office area of the auto shop. You have to drive all the way to the back. I waited only 15 minutes before Kevin squeezed me in to check out my car. I had a little bit of a difficult time understanding his accent but he asked for my number and texted what was wrong. It could be a simple problem of the gas tank cap not closing tight enough and letting the air in. He took a picture from his computer with the engine light trouble codes that popped up from the test and removed the check engine light. He told me to come back if the light pops up again in a few days and really only charged me $20 bucks.
This place is so reliable, Kevin and all are super reliable, direct, competitive prices and have attention to deatil. They are open on saturdays.
