"I have taken all my vehicles including our travel trailer to
Austin Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
for our inspections for the past 5 years. That is their only business so there is no waiting for someone to get a set of tires or an oil change done to get your sticker. He completes the inspections very quickly and provides great customer service. A little hard to find if you are not familiar with the area but worth it.

"I've been using

for a few years. I'd had bad experience with two tire places and was desparate to find a place I could trust. I don't remember how I found them but I am sure glad I did! Wednesday I got a flat tire on my minivan. I'm a 48 year-old female and not in the best of shape. I was quite fortunate to be in a parking lot, but nobody was around who looked strong enough to help me. I tried to put the spare on ... then I called

. I was close enough to them (near 183 & I-35) so they drove right over -- they were there in less than 10 minutes! They changed my flat to the spare. Maybe other places would do ths but not the other shops I'd been to! This isn't the first time they've gone beyond the call of duty for me. I then drove to their shop and let them finish the job. Did they add services? No. I'd been planning on getting to the shop to have the tires checked (even I could tell they probably needed to be replaced) and an inspection. They noticed the date on my oil change sticker so I added an oil change -- not exactly an "added" service since it had been so long.In the past (and also this time) I've had them look at things and they've told me no, I didn't need any service. They are friendly and professional and I hope I'll never have to go anywhere else for tire work. Most of my intereaction was with

"I lost my job in 2010. Needless to say I cut back on expenses, like oil changes, state inspections, tire rotation, alignment, etc. I now have some money, so I searched Angie's for a repair shop in North

"I called them to ask a general question about what might be causing a problem I had with my steering. They told me that I likely had warped rotors (which further research confirmed). They had a look and ended up needing to turn both rotors, which they did for much less than the dealer would have charged. They did their usual thorough and prompt job -- I've been using them for about fifteen years over the course of around 6 different cards. They have NEVER steered me wrong!"

"Job went well. Car was ready on time. I was assigned a service representative who discussed the work with me, both before and at the end. He was knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with."

"Everything went well. I dealt with a single service representative who was knowledgable and pleasant. I discussed and agreed the work with him. He kept me informed of progress. The work was finished on time."

"I go there for everything. They are a little bit biased because he is my wife’s uncle. We are honest with everybody and we send a lot of friends there. They are kind of like doctors. They

’t over diagnose and over treat anything. They repair what they think is wrong the cheapest way and if that does not fix the problem, they kind of dig a little bit deeper. He gives a fair price for what he does. He does not come out and tell you what should be done. He gives you options and he would recommend the cheapest one first and see if that works. I would definitely use their services again in the future."

"Two of my cars were due within the same month and took them both to

. Exactly as promised, 10 mins in and out, no hassle, friendly, professional service. But the best part is that fact that they didn't try and sell me an oil change, fluid change, filters,tire rotation or any other high pressure hassles like some of the other "inspection" places!"

"I've been to this repair shop a few times. Honestly, I just don't trust them. But more on that later. This repair shop seems to always be crowded and it takes a long time to do routine things like an inspection. You have to wait for an hour or hour and a half some times. The waiting "room" is miserable as it is just part of the main floor and is extremely loud. Sometimes there aren't enough chairs for everyone waiting. Now for the trust thing. Every time I've gone there they told me I needed to fix something else on my car. The last time, when I was waiting, they told someone else who was in the waiting area, "You need to replace your battery. Whoever put the last one in your truck put the wrong size in, and there's not much juice left in it." Then about 15 minutes later they came up to me and said "You need to replace your battery. Whoever put the last one in your truck put the wrong size in, and there's not much juice left in it." I know the battery was the right size per the manual, and its suspicious that they told the same thing to two people in a row. By the way, my battery lasted for another year."

"Overall it went good they did exactly what I asked them to do, and they are a local family owned business which I appreciate. They make customer service the cornerstone of their operation."
