This guy tried to scam me badly. He said I had a serious problem in my car with lug bols and joints and that it was very dangerous to drive the car like that. He gave me an estimate of $2000 plus. I had the car inspected by another mechanic and by the Mazda service. Both found nothing wrong in the car except for the need of new tires. It's a pity the family who used to own this shop are not there any more. I will never return to that shop again. If you decide to try this place, be careful. Don't go unless you know a lot about cars so he won't dare take advantage of you.

I COMPLETELY disagree with the negative review posted on May 12, 2011 by Miata owner. My husband and I have had a terrific experience with Tim and Harlan at All-Car Auto Repair. We have not just taken our car to them once for an inspection, but for numerous other reasons since moving to FL. We’ve had our cars to them for routine maintenance, as well as, major fixes. They have always been extremely personable and always eager to do what they could to save us money where they can. Not only that, but they have done a terrific job on all of their fixes – I have never had to go back to them because the problem wasn’t taken care of.
Our most recent experience was the icing on the cake. I took our 07 Honda Odyssey (which was covered by a manufacturers extended warranty) in to All Car because I could hear a rattle every time I pushed on the gas. After looking at the car, Tim's diagnosis was that there was a problem with one of the catalytic converters. He called me to come and get the car because he thought that the problem would be covered under the extended warranty. I picked up the car (at no charge) and took it to the Honda Dealer where they told me that all the heat shields would need to be replaced and that the repair would not be covered under the warranty. What was worse, the Honda Dealer quoted $1,000 to fix the rattle. I took it back to All-Car and Tim fixed the problem for $107.
I HIGHLY recommend All Car Auto Repair. They go above and beyond the call of duty to make your automotive repair experience pleasant and inexpensive.

Repair/Service: Engine issues

Harlan and Tim have been a blessing as my 2004 F-150 had some serious engine issues due to a lack of the appropriate number of oil changes. Unfortunately my truck finally broke down and I initially took it to Ford to get an assessment . The diagose was to replace the full engine for $5- 6,000 money I did not have plus I was still paying on the vehicle. Money has been very tight for a couple of years with a failed business and out of work, so I was pretty much stuck. Tim reviewed the situation and explained everything they would need to do to the truck and why. Tim was able to get me back on the road in 24hours for less than $300, which for me was a massive blessing. They have always been friendly and honest even more importantly patience and accommondating to someone that knows little about cars, but wants to know why and what caused the problem it the first place and how to fix it.
I would personally reccommend this shop and I have recommeded this shop to friends and family and everyone has been more than happy. All the best to Tim and Harlan for helping keep us on the road at a price we all can afford...................peace!

I took my car to another shop and the gave me an estimate of $600.00 for front and rear brakes. I did not like that estimate so i decided to go to another shop, which was ALL CAR AUTO REPAIR that i found online, after reading reviews i decided i would check them out. arriving at all car auto repair i felt at home, they were very friendly, hopeing for the best and a better price i asked them an estimate on my brakes all around and was quoted at $389. While waiting for my brakes to be serviced and repaired, the stay was pleasant and quick. Great service, i would refer and recommend all car auto repair to everyone. Thank you Tim and Harlan for the OUTSTANDING and beyond excellent customer service and caring about your customers. The price was affordable and very reasonable! -Stephanie
