While I hated, hated, hated having to spend the large chunk of money I had to spend to get a used transmission in my truck-- these guys were awesome, truly. They had my truck about 3 weeks, while I 1- took time to decide WHAT Im going to do, 2- finding me a transmission that had the lowest miles on in for used, and 3- excellent customer service. They looked over my whole car to make sure it was "worth" replacing the tranny, and the assured me my engine was solid, however had a few minor things that needed fixing. Both items I already knew, so I knew these guys were far from scamming me. 3 weeks later and I drove away stoked to have my "newer" truck back!! She was dirty, lol, but she has a 50k tranny, a new radiator, an oil change and shes up and running. I barely made it TO them the day I dropped it off. They keep you in the loop, they are good on their timelines, and they sure as hell tried to find me the best prices for parts. This is my go to shop, no doubt!!

Good service there fast only issue I had was had someone hit my car I asked if they could buff it out they just scuffed up the clear coating

Hello Andrew, we should not have offered to buff anything out. We are a repair facility not a paint and body shop. In our desire to help you we stepped out of our field of expertise. For that I am sorry.

I have been taking all of my cars here since 2007, and they have always done good work for a fair price, been completely open and honest, and given me good advice and quick service. They are best auto repair team I have ever found, and I have been having cars repaired and serviced for a long time.

Thank you for your kind words Charles, and thank you for allowing us to service your cars.

Our van overheated along 130 from Austin going to San Antonio. We got it to stop overheating just so we could drive it to nearest Walmart so we can buy coolant. We ended up in Walmart in Buda, Tx. We discovered a gushing leak and knew that we could not make it very far. My hubby google auto repair shops that were closeby. He found Austin Automotive Specialists, which had great reviews online, and it was great that they were open Saturday since it was early Saturday morning at 1230 am that we could go no further. We called our insurance company for tow truck to take us to their parking lot. They promptly opened their doors at 730 am. They got our van in, checked it, gave us estimate, ordered part, fixed it and we were on our way to San Antonio. The place was clean and well lit that we felt safe waiting in parking lot for 1 1/2 hours. The people were nice and efficient. Hopefully, we don't break down again but if we did in Buda area, we know where to go. Thank you.

Princesita, Thank you for your kind words. We have all broken down at one time or another and know the stress and anxiety it can cause. We are happy that we were able to get you up and going without to much delay.

This is my first & only stop for inspections, registration and anything else car-related-they are the best! As a female, I have had many car service places try to run up the bill on me, try to sell me items I don't need-you name it, but the guys at AAS will bend backwards to help and provide many solutions IF there is an issue. On my first visit for inspection, I didn't realize my insurance card was expired (card in car, not insurance itself). I was able to get a hold of my insurance carrier, but long story short-after multiple attempts at faxing, etc. I finally was able to get a current copy. There is no reason the guys had to be polite to me, but they were endlessly patient and even helped me figure out a potentially expensive issue with my car. Why are they my go to guys? Well, on my second visit, with my husband's car, I didn't realize the the insurance card in his car was expired.......

Thank you Aimee, for letting us service your cars. We know auto repair and service can be stressful and everyone has a choice of where to go for service, so we strive to do our best. Thank you again.

I always take my car for oil changes and any repairs. They kept my old (over 200,000 miles) SVU working and safe until I sold it so I brought my daughters car from Temple because I knew I could trust these guys to not take advantage of me. They took care of the vehicle and told me what needed to be done it the future but never once tried to "up sale" me to things I really didn't need right now. It is really nice to be able trust that you are not being taken advantage of - Thanks again to Tom for taking care of me.

Thank you for your confidence in us Diane. We strive daily to do our best to service our customers needs honestly and at a fair price.

I took my Honda Civic here for an alignment. And, after I showed some interest in the alignment process, the manager, Clay, brought me to the garage and showed me how they do it on their advanced alignment system. While out there, they mentioned how the bottom radiator hoses were misplaced and causing a leak. They replaced them with some better ones, free of charge! I will definitely come back here if I need some more work done.

We appreciate your review Heath. We feel the best customer is an educated customer. The more someone knows about their car and understands the important's of maintaining it the better we can serve our customer.

Have been going to this location for years and have always been relatively happy with services. Since the name change/new ownership, I feel even better about it. They remember my name when I call, know who I am when I come in and beat prices I have been quoted by others. The waiting room is clean, staff is friendly and go out of their way to explain what they are doing. I never feel like they are pushing unnecessary services on me. I would recommend them highly.

Robyn thank you for your kind words. We started off as a Brake and Under car shop back in 1979. We felt it was time to change our name to better reflect the full range of services we offer. We are still the same family run business we have always been and we are lucky to have Clay as our new Manager. He really understands we are here to serve not to sell.
