Two ladies and I were on our way to State in bowling in Austin.
The lady driving hit something in the road halfway between LLano and Bee Cave. Turned out it punctured the gas tank.
It was decided to stop for gas at Bee Cave and discovered there was gas leaking. The fire dept. and police were called.
Across the highway was McSpadden's Automotive. The police stopped traffic, several guys pushed the vehicle across the
highway. McSpadden's replace the gas tank and had us back on the trip in 2 hours.
They did a super job!!!!! Thanks from us 3 ladies.

I have had nothing but excellent service and honesty from this company. I now take all of my vehicles there for service, repairs, etc. They are very friendly and do a great job of helping the customer understand what their vehicle needs and the options available. I know whatever they tell me is the truth and that they will always do whatever is necessary to get the job done properly.

My lil Betsy's brakes were in dire need so I took it to McSpadden's. Their pro's and fixed everything for a very reasonable price, with none of that squeeking or grabbing, 'give 'em time to adjust' bizness I've experienced before at other places. First, it's so clean you could eat off the floor (really). Angie, at the front desk, was efficient, friendly, and good at communicating everything I needed to know. Fixed by the next day and brakes stopped as smooth as glass. Dennis and Ozzy who were sent to give me rides to and fro and were swell. That is so helpful. Thanks for the great job! I'll be back when Bets' needs more attention. Peace of mind is a powerful thing...

This is long overdue. I've had five services in a row on different vehicles I own. And I'm always amazed by the quality of the work. The friendliness of the service is like walking into a friends home. The price is always reasonable I don't not ever feel cheated because I've always recieved very accurate estimates. Never feel pushed into service I can't afford but always informed of areas that may need attention. Anyone who has had a bad experience with a mechanic needs to come to McSpadden period.

Trustworthy and polite group. Nice, clean office. Clear and concise explanation of services. I agree with the other review, it seems safer and more reliable to go with McSpaddens than a dealership.

I was reffered to McSpadden's by a friend. I went in and told them all the items i needed. They shuttled me home. Called me with an estimate and did the repairs in the time they said they would at the price they quoted, who could ask for more BUT they did more. I went to get my car and they had washed it inside and out. This place is GREAT. Thanks Guys

McSpadden's has become our mechanic shop and we are picky! They are convenient, professional, reasonable, and, timely. We have two older vehicles which are starting to have issues. When a repair did not work properly, not only did McSpadden's guarantee the work, they went above and beyond to take care of the problem and do something extra to make up for the inconvenience. They have also cleaned up the place. No longer is my car dusty after going to the shop, and because of the fencing, I know my car will be safe when it has to stay overnight. Thank you McSpadden's for sticking to your estimates, working with us, and making it right everytime!

McSpadden's purchased Bee Cave Automotive earlier this year. Reviews at Bee Cave Automotive weren't great, but reviews at McSpadden's on Congress were some of the best I'd seen. I contacted the Congress location and they promised me the same excellent service at the new Bee Caves location. The Bee Cave location is close to where I live, as are other automotive repair shops. I've had issues at the other companies, so tried McSpadden's. I had to have brakes and rotors replaced on my Suburban. The price was several hundred dollars less than when I had it done on a different Suburban at a near-by shop several years ago. My car was done on time, and my car was washed and detailed at no extra charge. I feel like McSpadden's is a place I can trust with my cars not only for repairs, but for general maintenance since I'd like to drive these cars for a long time!

Pros: Reliable, good pricing, customer care

I recently took in two cars for water pumps, timing belts and seals. The work was done quickly and there werent any suprise costs (much like other shops). Raymond answered all of our questions with a smile and did quality work. The work was done for exactly what we were quoted and it was by far the best price we found anywhere else in town. I was very impressed with the service and will not go anywhere else for repairs.

Incompetence without Integrity.

This is, by far, the worst experience I have ever had when dealing with an automotive service 'professional', a term I use quite loosely on this occasion. After taking our vehicle to have the front shocks replaced it was returned to us in what the shock manufacturer stated was a ""very unsafe"" condition that should not have been driven. The shocks were VERY OBVIOUSLY installed incorrectly as any idiot (unless, of course, the idiot was an employee of this jip joint) could tell since the truck was now jacked up a good 3 inches in the front only. After keeping the truck for an extra day it was returned to us in this very obviously wrong condition.

The first time we took the truck back is when I became aware of exactly what was going on here. We were told that they would be able to fix it for sure, but they would have to order different shocks and install those on the truck to do so. You see, they were installing shocks we brought in rather than the exact same set of shocks they offered to order for us at $100 more per shock. Anyone else see the very obvious money-grab going on here? Zero integrity for this dishonest move, but hey, they didn't quite know what they were up against.

So the truck goes back a third time, telling them it is VERY OBVIOUS something was done wrong and needs to be corrected. After much arguing, again blaming us and the shocks we brought in, they agreed to take the suspension apart and look at it again but they said they would need information on who we had contacted at the shock manufacturer etc. Well, after we returned home and did a bit more research we had to call them back to TELL THEM what THEY did wrong! Unbelievable! These clowns couldn't even figure out a simple front strut installation, and actually tried to tell me at one point the ride height of a vehicle was determined by the gas pressure in a shock! LOL! The suspension damper determining ride height, that's one I've never heard before!

They tried anything and everything to blame us and the parts we brought in for this before they would do anything about it. They made us do the research, figure out what the issue was, even after we had the manufacturer of the shock saying it was clearly installed wrong because the shocks would not significantly change ride height. They even CONTINUED to argue after this, which is nothing short of idiotic in my book... the manufacturer of the product is saying you are wrong and you still want to tell me that the shock/strut is going to determine ride height? Please, most children know better and even if they didn't they would at least stop after the manufacturer of the shock said differently.

All of this, having to bring the truck back multiple times, being lied to in my face, the shop failing at their money-grab technique, completely horrible customer service and a total lack of integrity and they had the nerve to laugh at me when I suggested at least a partial refund on the labor after I did the diagnostics myself. The best part was when they kept blaming the parts we brought, which were the exact same and CORRECT shocks for the truck that they offered to order for $100 more per shock... I mean, really, if you want to make your pathetic money-grab any more honest you might as well just come out and say it! Offering to ""fix"" the issue by installing the exact same unit at $100 more per corner is pretty damned obvious, guys.

What a bunch of dishonest, integrity-free, idiotic jokers. After reviewing their website and seeing that they are a ""Christian"" ""family"" business it starts to look like they were probably discriminating against us as well, though these things are tough to prove. Either way, great way to represent your ""Christian"" values, whatever those are!

If they can't even do a simple strut installation and stand behind their failures when they very obviously occur, why would anyone trust them?

This is for the Bee Cave location.

I brought my Lexus to McSpaddens as it approached 100,000 miles and needed a timing belt. Since my car had never been to a repair shop, I took a chance with this place and I'm glad I did.\r
\r
When I brought my car in, I asked them to change the timing belt and water pump and check for the source of an oil leak. Everthing was fixed on time and within budget and I feel like they went over my car pretty thoroughly to make sure there were no other problems.\r
\r
I'm happy with the quality of service and I will use McSpaddens again.

I have been going to McSpadden's for about 3 years and have never had a problem. They are honest, friendly and willing to take the time to explain how things work. If they aren't too busy, they will even take you back in the shop and show you the details of what they fixed.

Most importantly, on several occasions, they have had the chance to overcharge me and didn't. Once, my Honda CRV broke down driving to town and I took it to Howdy Honda to get fixed. Honda told me that the head gasket was blown and gave me a repair estimate in the thousands. They also pushed real hard for me to trade in the car for almost nothing and buy a new one. I was skeptical, so I took it to McSpaddens and they showed me that all that happened was that a nail on the road flew into my radiator and caused me to over heat. They replaced the radiator and the problem was fixed.

I've had a few similar situations where other shops gave me pricey repair estimates and McSpaddens showed me that the other shops were not really fixing the real problem. They are very knowledgeable and seem very honest.

FYI: The parts they use are from the dealer, so they may not be the cheapest, but they do it right so you don't have to have it done again

As a woman having to go into an auto repair shop I think we all feel a little somewhat intimidated. These guys were very nice and went out of there way to accomodate me. Also they did the work really fast and that was it... I was on my way. They did a very good job! I will definitly be going back because of the excellent service and my car is 10 years old!

I first came in contact with McSpadden's in regard to my air conditioner not working. I had taken my car to two other places. Their quotes were $1300.00 and 900.00. McSpadden's fixed it for 160.00. They are honest! I will never take my car anywhere else.
I recommend them to all my friends.

I just started working on S. Congress recently and noticed McSpadden's sign on my way to work which read ""if you don't have an honest auto repair shop, give us a try"". Then I had a problem with my car, and thought of them first. They were very helpful, prompt and reasonable.

I think McSpadden's Automotive is one of the few shops in town that understands long term thinking. If you are honest and treat the customer respectfully then they will return. I have been using McSpadden's for many years now and have always felt they understood this concept and treated me appropriately. It is a simple idea but one very few practice. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a mechanic they can trust.

We were headed out of town for a long road trip - our car started having problems the day before we were scheduled to leave. I called the mechanics we've used in the past and they were completely booked up. I was paniced. Then I remembered Susie on 102.3 FM, The River, said that's where she took her vehicles and was very happy with them. So I gave them a call - and they said no problem bring it on in. Whew! We left the next day for our road trip as scheduled without a hitch. They saved the day! We had a great family vacation. They've definiately got my vote for life.

We have had our cars' serviced with McSpaddens since 2001. One of the the primary reasons that I have been going back to McSpaddens is that they have always had my car ready when they have promised. Additionally they are courteous, professional and honest when evaluating the repairs that are necessary as well as in rectifying any problems that may recur. Raymond, the owner and Brandon (office manager) are both extremely friendly and have always done their best to ensure we are always satisfied with the work done on our vehicles.I would recommend McSpadens to anyone looking for honest, prompt and reliable service.

I heard about this shop from a co-worker and decided to give them a try when the brakes went out on my truck. The truck is a 2001 in need of many repairs. They prioritized what needed to be repaired and quoted a very reasonable price. The repairs were made in a timely manner and is now running GREAT. Within a week my wifes vehicle needed service and I didnt hesitate to return to McSpaddens. The mechanics took the time to explain to me about all the repairs that were needed and helped to prioritize what should be done now and what could wait. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this company to anyone.

I have used McSpadden's automotive for years for various issues, some minor, some major. They have always displayed professionalism and genuine care about their customers.\r

I recently took my 9 year old vehicle in for what I knew was going to be a big dollar repair. I must say I was nervous but having been to McSpadden's before I knew that they would treat me right.\r
I ask that they check over some additional items and they did it with no 'over selling'. They were courteous enough to take me back home & pick me up when the repair was done. I'll be back for the rest of my repairs & for any additional vehicle maintenance.\r
Thanks!

Pros: Honest work; explainations everyone can understand

I've taken my daughter's car there and have sent my sister and brother to them. This week I took my car. We've all been totally satisfied with each of our visits. The place is clean, the people are friendly, and the service is great.

I've lived in Austin 20+ years and have used quite a few mechanics/dealerships in town and I can honestly say that McSpadden's is second to none.
They're conveniently located in South Austin, and happen to be across the street from a rental car business. If you're looking for a good mechanic give these guys a try. You won't be disappointed.

Pros: Dependable, Honest, Frienndly

I had access to my own personal mechanic, my father, for more than a decade until I moved away from home. I've never found a replacement that I really trusted until I started going to McSpadden's a couple of years ago. I'm happy to continue using this shop for inspections and repairs, and I refer all my south Austin friends to them.

Pros: great service, friendly, efficient, get the job(s) done

Cons: none currently

.

Everyone was friendly and attentive when I went today to have my emissions inspection done and added an oil change onto the service. Price was fair, I was in and out of there in less time it would take to go grocery shopping (for 2!). Gave me good info on getting through the state registration process (from out of state). McSpadden's will definitely be my regular mechanic now that I've moved to Austin.

McSpadden's has kept my 11 year old truck running great. I started with them shortly after they opened up the 4241 location. One of the owners, Raymond, (I haven't met Mrs. McSpadden) has always been friendly and sincere in his conversations with me. The current service writer, Brandon is as sincere and friendly as Raymond, outperforming by far all previous writers. They stand by their warranties, too. I highly recommend this repair facility and intend to continue doing business with them.

Pros: Repairs done right or they make it right.

Cons: Occasionally understaffed but still accommodating

It is great to have found an auto service shop that offers trustworthy service--especially for those who don't know cars. I have never had a problem with the service and they have always been responsive to my questions and concerns about my car's performance. They keep good records which they copy for me as I need them and which preserves a good history of my car's status.

I'm a relatively new customer to McSpadden's and my experience has been excellent thus far. after 10+ years with a previous mechanic, I was looking for a new mechanic closer to home that could deliver the same family owned attention and quality work that I had been recieving for so long. after much research, McSpadden's came highly recommended and I have yet to disapointed. The customer service is absolutely superb (even better than my previous mechanic) and the work is quick and high quality.

I worked with Raymond & his wife for many years so I know the quality work that they do. I've been taking my vehicles there for as long as he's had his shop: both a late model & an 18-year old truck. Both are running fabulously; he replaced the A/C system in the older vehicle & it's humming along great. Even if I didn't know him & Brandon personally, as a single woman I feel safe knowing that they've taken care of me & I'll get where I'm going safely. Thank you!

I became a customer in 2003. During this period I have owned a Nissan, Toyota and Audi which have all been service by McSpadden's. Their work has been excellent. They are upfront in telling you what needs to be done and the cost before any work is done. In some cases they even gave me options on what I might want done immediately and what might be put off until later, that would not constitute a hazardous driving situation. From state inspection to alignment, brakes and transmission, they have kept all my cars in perfect running order. Everyone I have dealt with have always been really nice and understanding. Not like the cold receptions you get from franchises and other garages where you feel your part of an assembly line.

I've had my 1996 GMC Jimmy serviced at McSpadden's for several years, everything from routine work to more expensive repairs. Over that time, I've come to appreciate their ""get it right the first time"" approach to service. The've also demonstrated the highest level of integrity and a friendly approach to customer service. I can sincerely say that they've earned my trust and continued business.
