5 stars Customer since 2014

Always wonderful service. Dustin and Clint have gone above and beyond what you expect of an auto shop. They help and explain problems in a way a non mechanic can understand; they give you straight answers and responses to aid in decision making.

5 stars Customer since 2014

I will always pick Shade Tree Auto as my first and go-to auto. You are honest and flexible. I have yet to experience customer service as exceptional as Shade Tree Auto. Many thanks for your service!

Had an overheating issue with teuck. Didn't get it fixed all the way the first time, so took it in a second and it ended up being two problems and it's worked great ever since

4 stars Customer since 2014

Excellent work as everything appears to be functioning as you predicted. I held off on the 5 stars as you returned to me the same 2006 car that I dropped off. If only you could make it a little newer...

Thanks guys.

I really appreciate a shuttle ride so my work day isn't interrupted. They are honest, fair priced and do a great job. I will be a customer for a long time.

5 stars Customer since 2010

Clint Dudley, the owner of Shade Tree Auto, and his staff are very professional, honest and trustworthy when it comes to repairing your vehicle. He wants the "best" for his customers. They are very thorough in checking the vehicle and only recommends the items that need to be repaired. When you have the vehicle repaired they give an outstanding warranty (4 years) on the repair and they stand behind it!

I have personally recommended Shade Tree to many friends, family and some businesses to have their vehicles repaired. You can be reassured that they will fix only what needs to be fixed.

Shade Tree is very professional, honest, pleasant and the shop is very clean and update to date with the latest equipment and you will be welcomed.

5 stars Customer since 2012

Always very happy with the service Shad Tree provides.

5 stars Customer since 2013

Shade Tree is a great local shop that treats their customers right. It reminds me of the shops you find in a small town. I've had a few reasons to visit them lately and although I wish that were not the case I would not go anywhere else with my vehicles.

5 stars Customer since 2008

I think I've posted in here before, but I've been with Shade Tree for nearly 8 years now at this point. I've stayed with them for the same reason I found during my initial visit--great service and great people!

I've had about 5 vehicles in to them and whether it's a normal maintenance or a majorly puzzling issue they always find a resolution and get it back to me in a highly efficient time frame. From routine oil changes, to mechanical or electrical issues, to installing a lift-kit they're more than qualified and will always be honest and courteous.

Thank you guys for the past 8 years.

5 stars Customer since 2010

I am reviewing for mother who is 92 years old and has used Shady Tree for a couple of years. She loves and trust these guys. I know they won't take advantage of her and always do a good job. If need be, they will take her home and come to get her when the work is done. Good work Shady Tree, I highly recommend their service.

5 stars Customer since 2010

I had my car serviced and they performed in a very professional manner. The car was analyzed and checked completely over, the oil was changed with an excellent brand of blend oil (5000 mile oil) all fluids topped off and tires properly checked. The appointment was made at the time I wanted and as soon as I drove in staff took the car and started on it.

The staff is great, clean and very professional. The shop is clean and has the latest equipment which staff is trained on.

It is always a pleasure going to Shade Tree they always make you feel very important.

You always know the job is completed correctly using the best parts and staff performing the job with their training, honesty and integrity!

As I have done before I would recommend Shade Tree to all my friends and family.

Their CUSTOMER SERVICE is second to none!

5 stars Customer since 2012

The service I receive from Shade Tree Auto is phenomenal. They take great pride in technology and knowledge in their work, they pay close attention to detal with my vehicle AND treat their customers with respect. They give you many service options and details that most other places would charge extra. They make you feel like an important customer, and the best part about it, is they do that for all their customers! They certainly go above and beyond for their customers, and I'm excited to have found such trust in a great business! Thanks for your hard work, dedication, and amazing work!

5 stars Customer since 2009

Service was well done and performed in a timely manner. Getting a ride from their shop to my business and then getting a ride back to the shop made taking my van there easy. Brakes work great and new tires make the van ride a lot better. I'm glad I have a mechanic I can trust.

5 stars Customer since 2011

Always excellent service.

5 stars Verified customer

We always get a thorough diagnosis from Shade Tree and a phone call prior to work done to make sure we know what to expect. We appreciate that time taken to discuss our repair job.

Timely completion of maintenance/installation, professional service, and standard honest communication with Clint and Dustin. No other auto service team has their Core Values!

5 stars Customer since 2011

These guys to a very competent, thorough job and stand behind whatever they do. I service all my vehicles there including my RV.

They tell you what they think needs to be done but never twist any arms or put any pressure on you.

None better!

I own a vehicle that has 220,000 miles on it. Shade Tree Auto has helped me to keep my vehicle and given me peace of mind that it is safe to drive. I also get a 2 year or 24,000 mile guarantee on the work they perform.

They are dedicated, thorough, accomodating and pleasant to work with. They have my trust and business for a lifetime!

I am very impressed with the exceptional customer service we receive at Shade Tree. We got a promotional coupon and will continue to bring our cars there. We love the thorough inspection we get with our oil changes. Thank you!

5 stars Customer since 2011

Clint and his staff at Shade Tree Auto really care about their customers and they provide the best customer service of any auto repair shop that I have ever witnessed!

4 stars Customer since 2011

As always, Shade Tree Auto is a class outfit. They evaluate, quote and tell you what they think needs to be taken care of but are never pushy or insistent of what or when you take care of. They make it easy to get repairs done. I have a busy schedule and they picked up my Jeep, completed the repairs and dropped it back home with no effort on my part. Guess that's one of the reasons they do all my maintenance and repair work.

5 stars Customer since 2009

Fantastic service every time. Clean shop, friendly staff.

5 stars Customer since 2012

The guys at Shade Tree are wonderful. They reply to my e-mails immediately, pick up and drop off my car at work when it needs service, and are kind to me and my children when we are in the office. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help and have already referred your services to friends and co-workers.

5 stars Verified customer

These guys are good and they are honest. I took my Trailblazer in because it needed extensive work. I had a noise coming from the front of the vehicle and they thought it was my front differential. They ordered one and installed it. Come to find out that was not the problem. They kept the new differential in my car as they cited it was thier mistake. I don't know a differential from a strut, so they could have easily told me that was part of the problem and charged me anyway. This is why I take my vehicle here. Great group of guys.

4 stars Customer since 2010

Very satisfied with the quality of service we receive at Shade Auto.

5 stars Customer since 2011

Problem explained, understood and repaired. Did a complete inspection of my vehicle and suggested a few service items to consider for a future visit. Hassle free and professional.

5 stars Customer since 2012

The guys at Shade Tree have always been prompt and courteous and done a great job on our vehicles. Even if there was an issue, they have made it right every time. You can count on dealing with people who are honest and thorough every time. And I am thankful for the ride back home and I don't have to take out my carseats!

5 stars Customer since 2007

Got me in early and fixed the problem.

5 stars Customer since 2007

Got our camper in for an oil change after we put 5200 miles on it. Shade Tree checked it out and said we were good to go again!

5 stars Customer since 2008

The gold at Shade Tree Auto are courteous, efficient, and will tell you the truth about your car. Only place I will go.
