What Our Customers Are Saying

These guys are great!! They were able to get my car in and were fast doing the repairs. They took the time and showed me what they were going to do to my car and not try to say "you need this and that and yada, yada, yada". Then to top it off my car ended up being cheaper than the original final estimate, which I was thrilled with. If my regular mechanic can't fix my car I will definitely come here again.


-Victoria F.

Came in on a Saturday to fix a rusted 02 sensor so I could pass my emissions test. Fixed the problem same day and for a very reasonable price. Awesome staff and talented mechanics!

-Andy K.

I recently needed brake work and my usual mechanic couldn't fit me in for a week. I checked the reviews for State Road Auto Repair, called and talked to the owner, Dominick. He not only took my car right away, but gave me a ride home (I live close by) and came back and picked me up. Excellent work, fair prices, and fantastic customer service. My usual mechanic just may have lost my business to State Road Auto Repair! Thanks to Dominick and his crew.
