“I do almost all my own maintenance, but didn’t feel like dealing with a fuel pump. I took my vehicle in off of a recommendation. From the first impression until I drove away, I was pleased with the honesty and integrity of all of the employees. I know there are other things that need to be done, but never once did I feel pressured into having more work done. I was advised of the things needed and I requested a quote. I will be returning with my vehicle to have the recommended work done and more. I highly recommend giving these guys an opportunity to earn your business as they have mine.”

“Awesome family business. They are as honest as they are nice. We have 3 older vehicles, and they keep them all running. They work with you to prioritize the most important repairs so you can manage your budget. Rates much lower than I was paying at the dealer. Ask for John – he is the best!”

-Karen E.

“I became a lifetime customer of Thunderbird Automotive Specialists a few years ago. My car started acting really strange. I was near the shop, so I limped it in. After checking out my car, they told me “Toyota has a recall for this problem. You can take it to a Toyota dealership and get it fixed for free.” I did, and they did. I was blown away by their honesty and integrity. They now do all my regular maintenance. John and his team treat me like family. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.”

-Beth K.

“This place is amazing. John is wonderful and made a very stressful situation a lot easier. Not to mention I was expecting to have to come back for the actual work, but they had it done in less than a couple hours!”

-Cathy S.

“Really honest people that will take care of car troubles.”

-Jason R.

“I’ve been bringing my cars to T Bird auto for about 12 years now. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. The cost is reasonable, compared to Dealerships, and the work is done very professionally. Tom and his staff are very nice. I’ve referred some of my friends, and they thanked me for sending them there.”
