Andy is a big help! I recently had problem with a car I bought and he's been really helpful, keeping me up to date and letting me know why he's going to do before hand. I would refer him to anyone!

If there was a way not to even score a star I would! Andy will tell you what you want to here, like he did to me. He told me he could beat the competitors price for a factory transmission rebuild, and I ended up spending over $1000 more. Andy wouldn't give me back my car after it had been "fixed" (at this point it had been 2 weeks for a job that should have taken less than four days) until I paid him another mysterious $400, in which I had never seen a bill. He wouldn't let me test drive it until I paid him and I had to call the police. He continued to harrass me via texts antagonizing me to have my friends and family confront him...All in all I ended up having to pay the money so that I could get me car back. He would only take CASH ONLY!!! He also wouldn't let me test drive my car without paying first...I was driving home and heard a grinding noise when I made a hard left turn. I took it in to Mazda and the mechanics quote was $1800..more than half of that price, he said, was due to the "mechanic" who just worked on my car and didn't tighten the wheel bolt (not sure of the exact terminology) , which then wobbled everything and ended up ruining my wheel bearings, ball joints, rotors and break pads..... When I called to confront him he wanted me to bring it back to him! You're absolutely crazy! There are a couple of more recent reviews for Paladin and Andy within the last month or so...those are the ones that really show how Paladin wants to take your money.

This was the worst automotive experience in my entire life. I myself am a weekend car mechanic and know enough about cars. I have a Masters degree from UT and consider myself fairly intelligent but couldn't figure out my complex foreign

Paladin Automotive provided me with quick, friendly, and affordable service. As a female I never feel comfortable that mechanics are telling me the truth, that has all changed. Working with Andy and his Service Manager Rick put my mind

I had 2002 Ford Explorer Sport that stalled out while driving down the interstate. I spent several months and lots of money on various mechanics charging outrageous diagnostics fees and labor which only resulted in my vehicle not running.

I own a small computer company and my truck is my life, at 4:30 PM while I was leaving a customer site, I noticed a large puddle of water under my truck. I poured some water in it and it just ran out. I called Andy at Paladin Automotive,

I am a dude, but know nothing about cars except how to drive them. I know i hate car trouble though, as it used to cause me even more trouble because all the mechanics could tell i knew nothing about fixing cars and would hit me up with all sorts of extra repairs that would cost me a fortune. Now, however, i have found an auto mechanic that can tell i know nothing about fixing cars but won't take advantage of that fact. The owner has always dealt with me honestly and friendly, pointing out what needs to be fixed and why, without a lot of mumbo jumbo to confuse me and jack up the price. He has some great guys working with him, and i always feel good after I leave because i am comfortable that only the needed repairs where done, plus when the stuff i need fixed is fixed, its fixed and i don't have to come back and say hey, there is something else going on here.... Ladies, and if there are any men like me that don't know how to fix cars, here is a mechanic that will shoot straight with you and charge you a reasonable price, well worth it. The peace of mind and all that second guessing that i don't have to do makes it even better. I hated being a sucker for dishonest mechanics, and now i don't have to worry about it. I love honesty.

Paladin provided great, fast service. Andy dicussed diagnostic issues and provided the service he promised. I use Paladin for all repair on my two cars because he quoted a price and delivered on it.

I love Andy! I'm female and I have no idea about cars!... I hate taking my car places and feeling like every time I turn around there's more work that needs to be done. Spending more money than I have... but Andy isn't like that. He tells you exactly what needs to be done and the price before he does anything. He even gave me a few options. And even when I call him on a daily basis to see how my car is, he's always so nice and keeps me fully informed! Honestly I wont go anywhere else.... ever! He is absolutely amazing and very friendly... and always gets the job done! How could you ask for more?

When I first moved to Austin, I didn't know who to trust with my car. I was tired of mechanics who tried to sell me work I didn't need. Andy took the time to find the best price on the parts I needed and explained to me exactly what was wrong with my car. I will never take my car to anyone else from now on.

I went out to my car one morning a few weeks ago and nothing happened. A friend told me about this mobile mechanic that had helped her a few months back and was opening a new shop in North Austin. She gave me a business card for Paladin Automotive. I called and talked to Andy. The fuel pump needed to be replaced. Andy called his regular vendors and was quoted prices between $500 & $750 for the entire assembly. He kept searching for just the fuel pump and found one online for only $120. My car runs great and my mileage has improved significantly. I wont take my car to anyone else from now on.
