What People Say About Us

  • reviewicon

    AZ Auto and Radiator performed a thorough check of my vehicle and found some issues that I suspected were present, but were never diagnosed by another local auto business. The owner took the time to show me (on the vehicle) what he recommended and why. Professional, friendly service, and they didn't pressure me to have everything fixed immediately. Highly recommended!

    As usual, Danny and staff did an AWESOME job! Danny and AnnMarie are wonderful people and are as honest as the day is long. AZ Auto and Radiator have been doing the maintenance on all of my vehicles since 1997 or 98, and I will continue to take my vehicle maintenance needs to them. They do excellent work, and will tell you the truth about your vechicle maintenance needs; without all the extra stuff that other auto shops will try to sell you. Take your vehicle to Danny and crew for you next vehicle maintenance needs--You Won't Be Sorry!

    Danny and the crew at Arizona Auto are tops for reliable workmanship and customer service.

    Just had my oil change and a much-needed window repair before monsoon season hits. I have an older vehicle and I like that Danny and AnnMarie take a wholistic approach at caring for my car--they try to watch for possible issues and let me know what might be coming up. They are also mindful about determining the cause behind any needed repairs (if it is not something attributed to basic wear over time) so that we don't end up repairing the same issue over and over.

    Not only can we trust that our truck is getting excellent, and current, service with Arizona Auto; each time we go, there is some thoughtful improvement to the waiting area. We couldn't be happier with them!

    Seventeen years later we still depend on our extended family at Arizona Auto to fix our problems.

    Got my vehicle in right on time and completed the work in a timely matter. Friendly and helpful staff. Repair was very reasonably priced. Plan to return when vehicles need service.

  • reviewicon

    I find the owners and staff trustworthy and ethical. My car is always ready when promised.

    I trust the people who work at Arizona Auto and Radiator. A few years ago, they sold a car for us. They told us they expected to sell it for $4,000; we thought that would be a good price to get for the car. They sold it for $5,000 and gave us the extra $1,000. We would never have known that they sold it for a higher price and would have been happy to receive the $4,000 originally estimated. I don't think that level of honesty is common in many businesses.

    Major RAVE for Dustin and Danny at AZ Auto on Bartow. My 14 y/o vehicle had been ignored and abused for some time. Danny is a great diagnostician, Dustin worked with me on some of the maintenance issues it had. Nobody ever spoke down to me because I am a female (They did not know I was a Veteran Army mechanic). Nobody tried to oversell. My car drives like new. Very impressed.
