"Wonderful people and great service here make a this business top notch to work with!  Because they are so good, they are busy, but give them a call, their front desk lady is as friendly as you'll find.  The owner is a pleasure to speak to (expect grubby hands when you shake, he's no brass that sits back and expects others to work for him).  A beautiful waiting area includes soft couches, fun decor and a popcorn machine!  *My kids want to go just to eat popcorn; should it make me sad when they ask if my car needs servicing just so they can eat unlimited popcorn?  This place is so people-friendly that they even drove me home after I dropped my car off because I had no other way at the time!  I know that almost everyone has a mechanic that they've already established themselves with, but if not, please consider American 5 Star Auto.  They're reliable, dependable, friendly and HONEST (trust me, I'm a perfect stranger writing a review, you can trust me).  Actually, if you read my other reviews, you'll see that I'm picky and honest when I don't like something."
"Everyone is fantastic here. Very welcoming and knowledgeable people. Plus Kathy is a riot and we just adore her."
"Down to earth family feel with out of this world service. They don't have to advertise due to return customers that only require the best. Best one stop shop, and if they don't got, they'll refer you to the next best spot."
"I went here a few weeks ago but wanted to give it time to make sure it was true but after fighting all summer with a dishonest dealer and many mechanics who couldn’t fix my AC but were draining Hundreds from my wallet i decided to give these guys a try with their $20 checkup to see if they could finally figure out what’s wrong well i don’t know what they did and i don’t know if they even know because they said it was going to be a $700+ fix but its worked ever since! I can’t thank them enough as you can imagine how miserable summers in AZ are with no AC! Also great with following up i will come here in the future"
"Honestly, I love going to American Five Star for my auto repairs. They work with me and give me options without any difficulty. I need a lot of work on my car and they let me know what can wait and what shouldn't. It makes what could be a huge hassle a breeze. Beyond that the work on my car is top-notch. I used to have a loud Buick that sounded like it could take off at anytime. She now runs quiet and is the enjoyable SUV I bought years ago. Thank you for everything you do!!"
