"Eric and his team at 5-star are the best! The only mechanic shop I TRUST and will ever go to! They're extremely knowledgeable when it comes to anything Automotive related. I've been going there for years And they always went above amd beyond my expectations! 5 star will never recommend anything but high-quality Parts as it should be. I have never had any issues with this company and always blown away with they're quality of work and detail. With both diesel and gas vehicles. they are quick with installs and fixes. Highly recommended A+++"
"Active duty military stationed across the country, but my family in Mesa is using one of my vehicles and keeping up on the maintenance of it for me. AC went out on it, and 5 Star was very accommodating and quick in getting it fixed. This is only shop in the area I trust to perform maintenance/repairs on my vehicles as I’m not in Arizona at the moment to do it myself. Great shop, honest work, fast turnaround time. Don’t hesitate to bring your vehicle to them."
"Great service, fair pricing, friendly staff! They even texted me days later to make sure everything was working well. Bringing my car back very soon for additional work"
"I've known Eric and American Five Star Auto Repair for 30 years. Eric has always been fair and honest. He is one of the best mechanics I have ever known and a really good friend. I give him 5 out of 5."
"I asked this company to check on a leak that was coming from my transmission. It looked like it was caused by the speedometer cable, so a replacement seemed necessary and it was a simple enough fix. I really just wanted them to take a look into it and stop the leak. I came back to find out that they had put a service package (transmission cleaning) onto my order and kept claiming that this was going to cover my needs (an extra $500). They did not fix what I asked them to. Instead the top mechanic (I think the owner) patronized me, and pretended that I had no idea what I was talking about. This company is clearly more interested in being conniving, finding ways to make people pay for things they did not ask for, and pretending to give the customer what they want. I do not understand how they consider themselves as a 5 star company when they literally did not solve anything for me in the end. I'd actually give them 0 stars at this point."
