"I had a problem with my car on the afternoon of Memorial Day weekend. The local dealer said, 'forget it', but my window was broken and would not close. I was also a stranger in town and didn't know any car service places. i called Smitty's and he told me to come over. He not only found the part, which wasn't easy because the car isn't exactly new, but they also installed it immediately, and I was on my way within two hours. On top of it all, they charged me less than the dealer would have. Thanks, Smitty."
"I love Smitty. I had a ‘96 Ford Ranger that he somehow kept running without it costing a ton. Now I bring my new car to him. I feel lucky to have found him."
"Best auto shop in town. Smitty does not BS...tells you how it is and does not try to up sell. He is very knowledgeable, passionate about his work, and always a pleasure to deal with. I will keep going back .."
"The professionals at Smitty’s auto repair shop have been exceedingly helpful in finding and solving the issues that have plagued my maxima recently. They’ve put up with my excessive calling about my car issues and will actually give you a ride home if needed. I definitely feel valued and confident when I choose to call Smitty with my car needs."
"Smitty's is a shining example of what customer service and quality care should look like. The gentlemen there have provided nothing but the best for me each time I've visited. Though I recently got a summer job as a delivery driver which in and of itself is a death sentence for your car, Smitty's has somehow managed to keep my car alive and well. I absolutely see myself sticking with their service for the entirety of my time in Gainesville. If you want service that you can trust in for a price that won't gouge your pockets then I really think you should give Smitty's a visit."
