Quality Makes a Difference. I have had my vehicle serviced at many different places over the last 7 years. Most were national chains. I would always have to make sure they actually did everything their "Menu" said they would do. After that sub par oil change was accomplished, My truck would often run the same as it did on oil with 3000 miles on it. At Bobby Oakley, I can walk in ask for an oil change and I know that when I get it back (I really don't know what they do back there) my truck runs as good as the day I bought it. Bobby Oakley has been very flexible, thorough, and professional in all of our dealings. A new car can cost a lot, Just keep the clunker you have and Bobby will keep it on the road for many years. All you have to do is drive intelligently and get it to Bobby's place when the time comes.

I would highly recommend Bobby Oakley's Automotive Service. My husband and I have used his service since moving to Powhatan 4 years ago and have been very pleased. You can count on him to do the job right the first time and you can trust him to only do work that is needed. My husband did most of his own repairs on our cars when he was younger so he knows what needs to be done and what does not. He has never had reason to question Bobby's work. I have been to other places that try to add on work that is not needed. You will NEVER experience this at Bobby Oakley.We have purchased tires through him for one of our SUV's, had shocks replaced on the other and have had all our factory recommended service done for both cars in addition to regular oil changes. When we first moved here, I would call other shops and even dealers for comparison pricing. I always found Bobby's prices right in line with the other reputable shops. Now I just go right to Bobby's because I know the price will be fair and the work will be done correctly. Also, I don't have to make an appointment weeks ahead of time or wait days for my car to be finished. Bobby conducts his buiness in a professional manner and he and his crew are very capable. In addition he is honest and honorable and I consider these important qualities. I trust Bobby with my cars.

Just left Bobby Oakley Automotive in Powhatan and I must say it was the best experience I have ever had at an Auto repair center. Mr Oakley was very professional as was his staff. Did the work in a timely and professional job. I live in Chesterfield Va and will take all my vehicles to Powhatan from now on. It is rare that you can trust someone these days. Trust me when I say this man is the real deal. congratulations to Powhatan . Your a lucky community to have this kind of business.

I purchased a 95 Nissan 240SX from a friend of mine, knowing that car needed some work. I immediately called Bobby Oakley's shop and talk to Bobby himself on the phone. I told him the first thing I needed was to get the car towed into his shop. Bobby told me how much the tow would be and said that he would look under the hood and see what exactly it needed. He told me the the main priority would be to get a new battery into the car and to replace some filters and do a few flushes (since the car was sitting for so long). I agreed to all the repairs and had my car on the road the very next day. Bobby's good attitude and fa nominal work will keep me coming back to his shop for any repairs I will need in the future.

I have known Booby Oakley for almost 6 years. I take my vehicles to him for all kinds of problems. He is always cheaper than any other quotes. If Bobby puts a wrench on it, it is fixed right. My friends and I know Bobby and his shop and would tell anyone if you have a problem, Bobby can fix it. Bobby has a business he can be proud of. In a world where the car models change yearly, we need mechanics like Bobby to keep up with the changes. I know he even goes to vehicle up dates to stay on top of the new modles. The last time I needed his help, I called Bobby, described the problem over the phone, He ordered the part and had it delivered to his shop before he even looked at my car. I had my car back the same day. He chanced having to eat a restocking fee to give me better and quicker service. I have added up that Bobby has saved me over a $1,000 dollars in parts and labor over the past 6 years. Vince Whittaker Powhatan Co.

RE: your reply to "first & last time"
Bobby you are absolutely right God does know the truth but I guess that doesn??t really make any difference to you. I am going to be kind here and just say you must be delusional in your recollection of what actually took place. I had to pay another shop to install another head gasket because it was leaking after you replaced it. You will never touch a car of mine again. I??m through with you. I found a good shop run by honest people ??Murry Automotive? they replaced the gasket and did it for less money than you charged me. They were very professional and their customer service was excellent. This shop was glad to answer any question about what they did and how the pricing was done. The car does run good now after they repaired what you were supposed to have fixed. When I picked up the car from your shop it would not idle below 1800 RPM??s. You told me it had the wrong ECU in it. The real problem was a bad air leak in the throttle body gasket that you installed. Not to mention fuel leaks from your manifold installation. I don??t know how or where to begin with the rebuttal you made other than to say you are a real peace of work and you aren??t fooling anybody with your own feedback Ed B. The real Bobby Oakley is hiding behind the Christian banner. Get your act together and take responsibility for the work that you charge for. I hope that anyone that is looking to have repair work done on their car sees the problems I had dealing with you and looks elsewhere to have it done.

I took my van to Bobby Oakley after being refered to him and he fixed the problem the first time and did not charge me for checking it. i had taken it to 4 other shops including the dealer and everyone charged me for looking at it and no one could tell me what the problem was. I will not trust anyone to work on my cars or trucks from now on but Bobby he explained to me what was going on and charged me a more than fair price. If you are looking for a highly skilled and freindly shop then Bobby Oakley Automotive is the place.

First off you need to state all the facts. The vehicle was in fact towed in for overheating we found the impeller bad on the water pump. We replaced the water pump and timing belt per your request and with a verbal est. which it took 3 days for you to return my call for me to explain the problem and get an approval, we repaired the vehicle then on the test drive the car started to run hot so it came back to the shop we block tested it and found it had a bad head gasket. Again you were called and it took 2 days this time for you to call back to inform you of this problem that you had created by driving the car and overheating it and the estimate was for 1600 not 1400 plus the cost of the part's from the first part of the job which was 300.00 and to completely recondition the head it was 275.00 in machine shop fee's and I waived all previous labor on the original job and told you I would just charge you for this fix because it is a big job and as always I was trying to help you as much as possible. The aftermarket intake that you said that I told you I would install for 100.00 which in fact I told you it would be time and material but a minimum of 100.00 for the INTAKE you never mentioned a throttle body and fuel rail that you also brought with you. This intake turned out to be the cheapest and poorly assembled part I have ever tried to install. We worked on this intake for over 6 hour??s trying to fit it and I only charged you for 2.5 hours of labor. Once we got the intake to work on the car it was warped along the mating surface of the head and throttle body from poor workmanship when the intake was assembled that we had to remove the intake and send it to the machine shop to have it trued up the machine shop charged a more than fair price of 105.00 because i told him the situation so he did you a favor. When we got the intake manifold back on the car and the intake and throttle body were sealed then came the task to making the fuel rail seal. I had to get 5 different sets of injector seals (which you only were charged for 1 complete set) to finally get a set that would not leak fuel. Altogether the second pulling of the intake we spent another 6.5 hours and only charged for 3.9 hours which the book calls for3.5 to replace a stock manifold. So yes I did do you a big favor and went far beyond any compensation to make sure your car turned out running smooth. As for the final bill it was far less than it should have been and was less than I told you it would be. You were told how much everything was before each phase was done and you approved the work. When you called me about the oil leak I told you to bring it in and when you did we fixed it that same day in fact you dropped it off but we had it fixed within 2 hours of you dropping it off you know that to be a fact because I called you and told you it was fixed and just for the record the oil leak was very small and in no way could it have left a 2ft puddle under the car. Everything in this letter is exactly the same thing I told you and you did not like it and it was you that got confrontational. So you can say what you want to and twist and leave out the facts all you want but here's one fact.......You and I both know the truth!!!!!! And above all "God" knows!!!!!

As for the final bill it was far less than it should have been and was less than I told you it would be. You were told how much everything was before each phase was done and you approved the work. When you called me about the oil leak I told you to bring it in and when you did we fixed it that same day in fact you dropped it off but we had it fixed within 2 hours of you dropping it off you know that to be a fact because I called you and told you it was fixed and just for the record the oil leak was very small and in no way could it have left a 2ft puddle under the car. Everything in this letter is exactly the same thing I told you and you did not like it and it was you that got confrontational. So you can say what you want to and twist and leave out the facts all you want but here's one fact.......You and I both know the truth!!!!!! And above all "God" knows!!!!!

First off you need to state all the facts. The vehicle was in fact towed in for overheating we found the impeller bad on the water pump. We replaced the water pump and timing belt per your request and with a verbal est. which it took 3

Pros: best service

First and last time I will ever patronize Bob Oakley Automotive. Had my car towed in for overheating. I thought it was the water pump and it was. When we started out the estimate was 400 dollars. Then it went to 1400.00 to do a head gasket, valve job, rings and rod bearings. Said he would install an aftermarket intake manifold and throttle body I supplied for about another hundred bucks. When I finally got the car back over 4 weeks later the final bill was 2900 dollars. When I questioned him about some of the charges he became confrontational and told me he had done me a favor and how fair he had been. This guy has a BS answer for everything and he does not make mistakes just ask him. He took a very unprofessional approach in dealing with me. I could not even talk to him. And to top it all off, got the car home and put it in the garage to find a 2 foot puddle of oil that had leaked from the oil pan the next morning. Heads up to anyone looking for a good mechanic, find another shop.
