I towed my car to Newman's after a recommendation. They looked at the car and let us know within 24 hours what was wrong and said they were "100% sure" that what they were going to do would fix the car. The next day we came to get the car, paid $350, and drove away. Within 1 block the car died twice, worse than it was before. We took it back and they just said they'd look at it again. They clearly didn't even take it for a test drive before taking our money. Called the next day and said they have no idea what's wrong with it. Now we are short a car for the weekend too, and out over $350 and are going to have to pay (again) to tow it to another mechanic that knows what they're doing. Newman's has taken our money, our time, and screwed up our car that we now have no way to even get home. I still don't have my car and will update this review when I do, but the outlook isn't great.

They make false promises (100% sure it will work), cut corners and skimp on service by not test driving your car before making you come all the way out there to pick it up and pay for it. Will never ever go there again and I will keep telling people about my experience until my car is fixed (or towed and fixed elsewhere at their expense) and returned to me with a full apology.

Response from this business:

Dear Haley H, Thank you for giving Newman's a try. You will recall that you agreed to remove this hurtful comment after we had correctly diagnosed that you had a bad radiator and your spark plugs were getting watered. You recall we fixed it for FREE and you promised to remove the comment. We dont cut corners. We take time to assess the problem and rule out possibilities. Where we can, we cut your costs...not corners. We hope to see you again. The Mgmt.

These guys are the best in town. They are honest, fair and totally go beyond the call of duty. Newman's has totally saved me when I needed work done quickly and they even will give you a ride if you need it. I would never consider taking my car anywhere else! A++

I want to thank Ronnie (Newman), Patrick and Tony for their outstanding service. I brought my 2001 Chevy S10 pickup in there about the middle of last week. When I got there with the AAA tow truck (W.T. Grant's), Ronnie immediately told me that I needed a new Serpentine belt. Tony was the mechanic who worked on my truck, and he immediately pointed out that the pulley had frozen up. These guys are good at what they do. I was extremely impressed at how knowledgeable and thorough everyone was while I waited for my repairs. This business is perhaps the best kept secret in Tallahassee. Ronnie indicated at the onset that I was probably only looking at an hour's wait. He was right on the money. And speaking of money, I left there after having only paid $150 for parts, labor and taxes. I know that they treated me right. I strongly recommend Newman's to anyone in need of any kind of vehicle repairs.

Car repair can be scary for a woman but, after a recommendation from a co-worker I brought my car to Newman's Auto Air for repair. Both times they treated me courteously and fixed what was wrong at a fair and honest price. I would recommend this place to anyone who needs auto repair.

This business is TOP NOTCH. Our daughter is a student at FSU. When her car broke down and had to be towed somewhere to be fixed we felt totally helpless as we live 300 miles away. Luckily the father of one of our daughter's friends recommended Newman's Auto. The car needed it's fuel pump repaired. Mr. Newman was able to disassemble the pump and replace only the needed parts thus saving us $$$$ from the high cost of a complete system. Mr. Newman comes highly recommended - which is understandable because he is fair, honest and went the Extra Mile to help us out. THANK YOU to "Little Rodney"!!!!! If your child is away at college in Tallahassee and you need their car fixed - Go to Newman's Auto!

I have older cars due to the economy. In the last year I have had an air conditioner repaired, radiator replaced, power steering pump, a timing belt in my truck replaced and a few other mechanical items repaired repaired. All were done quickly and at a fair price. The radiator was $250 less than the closest competitors. One was a franchise oil selling place, the other was parts store that does installations.

Their customer waiting room is classic! They are obviously focused on your car or truck. Tucked away among the parts,old and new, is this crystal award for Best Repair Shop in Tallahassee...one of the voter awards for 2010 or something like that. They have fixed my Volvo, Yukon, Kia, Sable, Wagoneer, Taurus, BMW etc. I am a Dave Ramsey beater-buyer. Newmans makes it possible! If you get there early you see 3 generations of Newman engaged in playing traffic cop with all the incoming wounded cars. They ARE the BEST!

I will never go there again they said they would "work" on my AC but, instead they burnt my cars computer and a whole bunch of other switches in my car. All the service lights were on when I went to pick up my car. They refused to pay for all the damages they caused. I then had to bring my car to a dealership to pay even more money to fix the AC and everything else they broke.

Response from this business:

Chad, You are being unfair here. All we did was check your AC Compressor (which according to you had not been working for 2 years) and checked your fuses. We concluded without anything further you had a dealer required service. Perhaps the dealer's comments and charges have clouded your memory on this item.

This shop is by far the best shop I've ever taken my car too. The last couple of months I have had multiple things go wrong with my car and they have bent over backwards to help me. one time they fixed a leaking pipe and they didn't even charge me for it.

I have found that Newmans Auto Air is more than fair. They do QUALITY WORK and THEIR PRICES ARE FAR BELOW all the other shops I have used in the past. They work very hard to satisfy their customers and I am more than pleased with their service. Before taking your vehicle to any other shop, I suggest that you check with Rodney Newman for EXCELLENT SERVICE, service that you will be pleased with.

I had Timing Belt and water pump service done 2 weeks ago for my Honda accord 1999 model. They did an EXCELLENT Job and the price is very competitive and Randy Jr. is very polite in answering stupid question and very friendly. I enquired couple of Place for the service to be done. What I feel is the price is very much low and the additional services you get at free of cost (They don??t charge).

As far as my experience is concerned, I had AC work done by them, after a few months cold air was out, they checked it out and got it back in, didn't charge me. Another time, an AC part broke, honest as they were, they replaced it-no charge. On some minor adjustments or freon, they don't take advantage on the customers, instead, they did not charge to fill it in. On a different issue, a mechanical job they did for me was a lot less expensive than what it would have been outside. They are courteous to their customers and take time to listen, especially Rodney and his father, which to me is another factor other than just fixing the car. I will stay with them.

Took my car into Newman's because the a/c was not cooling properly, it was cool but not cold especially in 100+ weather. Was diagnosed as being a A/C expansion valve took it in the next day and had it changed out. When I got there to pick up the car the a/c was still not cooling properly and there was grease on my dash, which I was not happy about. Took it back the next day and they had to order the "OEM" Honda expansion valve. They installed it and it worked perfect. I did not get charged any more money...They also give you a year warranty on the work. So I am happy. I rate this experience 3.5 STARS>>>

I've had them do a number of different things to our family vehicles without incident, until recently. They've replaced electric window motors, done complete brake jobs, fixed minor electrical problems, repaired the AC, and subbed-out some suspension issues to a reputable shop. Recently, we had an AC issue in a SUV -- front vents were blowing warm air, while the rear vents were blowing ice cold air (keep in mind that ALL of the cold air in an auto AC unit comes from one compressor). They "diagnosed" the problem as a "AC hose," replaced it to the tune of $400+, only to have the front AC still blowing warm air. Upon re-examination, they determined that it was a fresh air intake door for the front AC air mixture that was sticking open, and letting in too much fresh (read "hot") air. They ordered the new box and installed it without charge, and without question. They did not say, "I'm sorry, we made a mistake, and replaced something that wasn't broken." I would have preferred that they lay all of the cards on the table. They know they made a mistake... I know they made a mistake... I just would have preferred to hear the words. I trust them, nonetheless, and will continue to do business with them.

PROS: fair priced work, generally dependable
CONS: sometimes they get it wrong

Paul, We appreciate your kind words despite the difficulty encountered on this job. We could have explained the problem better to you. We are sorry about that.

My family has been using Newman's for our auto air maintenence and repair for years. The service is usually top notch, and they give us the best quote in town. So when my car broke down right around the corner from their shop, I thought nothing of having them look at it. Unfortunately it was a problem that required several days of engine work. They kept calling me to come up and get my car, but it wasn't finished. Even when I picked it up the mechanic was still working on it. When I got the car they had neglected to reattatch the air filter hose, and properly bolt the engine cover back on. Obviously they did not preform a test drive or idle, because I noticed the air filter immediately from the sound of the improperly aspirated engine. While the air hose is not very serious and immediately noticeable, the latter could have resulted in serious damage and further repair costs. Since then, I am not trusting any of my cars with them, even for AC.

I got an accurate estimate in a very timely fashion. And when it came time to do the work they were very professional and made my time without a car as painless and as short as possible. They let me drop off and pick up after hours and just pay by credit card. Great location too.
