Nationwide South sent one of their employees to jump start my car as it had a dead battery. Consequently, I was locked out but used a skeleton key to open the driver's side. Upon opening the hood came to find out the battery was stored in the trunk. The skeleton key would not open the trunk and this man practically crawled through a back seat that dropped down to find the wires that opened the trunk. and took care of my problem. He was such a nice person and so helpful he should be commended for his patience and caring ways on a very hot summer afternoon. He is a keeper and hope if the need ever comes again he will be the one you send.

AAA recommended this place but I'll definitely be back! I had a tire blow out while I was doing 70 mph on I-75 and it did a lot of damage to the inside of the wheel well and the wiring under the steering column. They fixed the busted fender pretty well so I wouldn't have to take it to a body shop and they went out of their way to find a part of the headlight socket from a junkyard so I wouldn't have to pay for the entire thing from the dealership! So, THEY SAVED ME MONEY, not something you get every day. Another problem surfaced during the test drive and they took it back and fixed it without giving me that look that mechanics tend to give demanding customers. The only problem I had with them was that I had to call and check in with them because they didn't initially tell me that they were looking for that hard-to-find part and I didn't hear for them for about the first 36 hours my car was there. But that's definitely forgivable seeing how busy they are and what a great job they did!

HORRIBLE AND SHADY! Absolutely DO NOT bring or get your car towed here. My car broke down and I called AAA to have it towed. The tow truck driver said he would tow my car to his shop and call us in the morning to see what we wanted to do.

I told the guy I don't have a place to put the car. The driver said, "that's fine, we won't charge you anything unless you have us look at your car". I was going to find out where I could take the car in the morning. Apparently the tow truck company is also a repair facility.

We simply had no where else to tow the car to. Larry called us up and said they ran a diagnostic and that there were $600 in repairs. We NEVER authorized a "diagnostic" test or for the company to even look at the car. Larry said that we wouldn't have to pay the diagnostic fee until we went ahead with anything.

I then called back any told Larry that my family friend offered to fix the car. WELL, THE STORY THEN CHANGED. All of a sudden I'm being transferred to Kurt Trockels.

The "Diagnostic"/ rip-you-off test was $80. I called and talked to the owner KURT TROCKELS and kindly explained that his truck driver said they would not charge to drop the car off for a few hours. Kurt Trockels proceeded to tell me that his truck driver was not trained correctly, yet I would still have to pay the diagnostic charge. I asked him if he was the owner and he lied and said he was a manager. He stated, "What difference does it make?" I said that I thought it was very dishonest of his employees to tell me one thing and for him to tell me something totally different.

Later I found out that AAA Tow companies are not supposed to charge for diagnostic.

I was stranded in St. Petersburg unsure of why my car wouldn't start when I called AAA. They sent out Joe and Jamie from Nationwide South Auto Repair to look at my car. Both of those gentleman went the extra mile to de-activate my alarm system which was cauing my car not to start. They could have just towed my car and been done with me, but they certainly are focused on customer satisfaction. Joe and Jamie are wonderful employees and could not have gotten better service from anyone! Thank you all for being such an amazing company to work with!

I've always received great service from Nationwide South. They have been in their location for a long time and are an approved AAA tower as well. They stay busy, but they are good about calling with estimates and the car is always ready when promised. The prices have always been comparable and the work done well - they are like an old fashioned neighborhood garage - prompt and friendly. I've never felt overcharged or "oversold" in the years I've patronized them. An honest repair shop.
