“I have been going to 1st Class Auto for a long time because they are real pros who know what they are doing. I get honest answers and always great service with a reasonable price. They are thorough with inspections and really do care about serving their customers right. On my last visit they caught a damaged tire that required careful inspection to catch. Many other shops I have been to in the past would not likely have found it. My wife drives this car. If left unattended this could have resulted in a blown tire while she was driving. They help keep my family safe. Keep up the great work 1st Class! See you for the next service.”

“My wife feels ( her opinion) that the car sounds, feels, and rides much better since she had the service and she is very satisfied . Her only complaint is that whomever drove the car or whatever left 3 grease spots on her drivers mat.....and they were grease.”

“This was a 120K checkup/maintenance on my 2008 Prius. When I got it back it drove almost as well (and was almost as clean) as the loaner they let me borrow for the day. Seriously, though...these folks run an excellent shop -- not just their technical expertise, but the courtesy, friendliness, and all the "intangibles" make it the best. (Even though my sole complaint is that they're not closer to where I live, I'll continue to drive across town in heavy traffic to take my car there for large and small needs.)”

“I will always rate First Class Automotive, number 1 in the automotive field in Raleigh. First Class will call and go over with you all problems they find on your car and allow you choose which ones to do first. First Class Automotive will give you a driver to bring you to your office if the repairs will take a longer time.First Class Automotive workers are very courteous and polite and their charges are very moderate compared to dealerships and other mechanics that I have used in the past.I rate First Class Automotive excellent because my experience with them. My wife keeps asking me what took you so long in recognizing First Class Automotive honesty and I have myself to blame.”

“I have been bringing all our cars - '96, '03 and '04 Lexus - to First Class for about 10 years. They never try to "hustle" me. They have actually several times suggested that certain items and issues "can wait 'til next time". My experience is that they are at least 1/3 less expensive than the dealer's service dept. The Service Advisors are very attentive and knowledgable as are of course, Harry and Jed - the owners. And I like that when I go there they know my name and remember my cars!”
