I've been taking my cars to Jerry for over 20 years, and have referred at least 50 people his way over the years. Let me make this simple - He's HONEST, GOOD and TIMELY! He isn't cheap, but would you want him to not get paid for his great work, great customer service and incredible honesty (will NOT put unnecessary parts/time into your job!). One of the joys of my time here in South Minneapolis is having a great, trustworthy mechanic that I can have 100% confidence in! GO TO STARR AUTO!!

Jerry and his team of All-Starrs (pun intended) have been very helpfull and HONEST about all the needed repairs on my 1997 Chevy Cavalier. Jerry has always been able to fix my problems, from fuel pump regulators and radiators to oil pan screw gaskets...I will always get my work done by Jerry and Starr Automotive!!! Thanks for all you do-

I first went to a dealer since I had just purchased my car, but I didn't have a warranty to cover anything. So I brought it to Starr Auto. They checked the code for less than half of the dealer price and whole bill [code read, parts & labor] was only $30 more than the dealer's code read fee.
Easy in & Out. Helpful folks on the phone too! Thanks Shawn & everyone at Starr!

Starr Automotive is the best thing that has come into my life since the birth of my children. Over six years ago I happened upon the "Starr" due to bad service I had recently received on my car from another local automotive entity. Jerry personally called in my behalf and informed them that the work was not done correctly. Needless to say since that very day Starr is the only mechanic in my life. I have referred all of my friends, family, and Organization that I work for to him and they all adore him. Jerry is one of the most honest people I have ever met. They just don't make them like Jerry anymore!

6 stars out of 5 would be more accurate. I've been going to Starr Auto for 15 years. Jerry and his crew are the only shop I trust. Not only are they friendly and professional, even more importantly, they're honest. How many times have you left a mechanic feeling like you just had work done that wasn't necessary? or that you paid inflated prices for parts and labor? I never have because Starr doesn't play that game. They tell you what's wrong and that's what they fix - period. I think us ladies feel especially vulnerable because most of us aren't as mechanically inclined as a lot of the guys out there, so we're more easily taken advantage of by shops that "up-sell" customers. Before I found Starr, anxiety would kick in the second I dropped my car off - "how badly will I get hosed this time??" Now dropping my car off is where the anxiety ends. I seriously can't say enough about these guys.

My Starr Automotive story is a simple one! I have been getting my cars serviced by Jerry, Shawn & Michelle for several years. The service is always courteous, effective and reasonably priced. They have never spent my money without calling me first. But this type of service is pretty standard and you come to expect it after awhile!
What I did not expect was the "above & beyond" experience I had at Starr Automotive. I needed a starter & alternator replaced and because I utilize my car alot for business (30,000 miles/year), I wasn't too surprised. The surprise came when Jerry smiled and said...."let me check your records, I think we put in lifetime guaranteed parts the last time we replaced those items."
You guessed it.....Jerry was right...and both parts (which were expensive) were replaced for only the cost of the labor to install them. You guessed it again....I am now a lifetime customer of Starr Automotive....guaranteed! The only reason I did not give a 5-star rating is because that is considered World Class....and I have never had my car serviced outside of the United States!
Thanks for the great work you guys!

I was taught about cars before I could drive. In my 20's I spent plenty of time under the hood of my Dad's pickup, which I rebuilt a carburetor, replaced a head gasket and did the plugs, wires and more than a couple of oil changes. That being said I have always been leery of mechanics in general, even after my (now) husband said to take our vehicle to Starr. After nearly 6 years of ownership of our current vehicle, I now refer to Starr Automotive ... as "Jerry". That is because I could call him up or walk in the door and provide my interpretation of the noise my vehicle was making and now trust him and his crew implicitly to find the problem and fix it reasonably. Michelle and the puppy's are always fun to visit with while I wait on the "boys". I have referred friends who have become loyal customers as well ...

I decided that I was finding a superior auto shop in my neighborhood. I don't know what brought me to Starr Auto, but from the first time i walked in and told Jerry about these two ridiculous $1700 and $1600 repairs that i actually agreed to from one of the chain stores for an old Mercury Sable, I knew he was the real deal. Jerry is realistic and doesn't fix anything if it isn't broke! When 3 of my neighborhood families heard me rave about the service at Starr, they started to bring all their cars as well. What I like most about Jerry is that when I ask questions about why a certain repair is needed, he will explain it in terms that a non-mechanic can understand! He referred my daughter for tires to a discount place that he trusts and recently sent me to another neighborhood business that does alignments. (That place was great too.) Can't say enough about the Starr Auto group.

My Daughter took her SUV into Tires Plus to get an oil change before she and the Grandkids left for vacation, she was told by Tires Plus that her ball joints were ready to break and that she needed over $2,000 in work done and it would be very unsafe to drive the vehicle. We called Starr Automotive and spoke to Jerry he had us bring down the vehicle and he inspected it for us, he told us the vechicle was save to drive and not to put that kind of money into it, it seem the ball joints might be a bit worn but it did not need work at that time. I cannot thank Jerry and his staff enough, they are honest and dependable and are a family business. I know where I will be bring my cars in the future for all of our Car needs. Thanks Jerry you save my Daughter lots of $$$ that Tires Plus would have taken from her, also this was a few months back and still not problem with the SUV since. Thanks Again.

I took my car in a few days ago to a chain auto repair place, due to some noise in the breaks. I was told I needed $1,600 worth of work (which my car is not even worth). I heard about Starr Auto from a friend, and then read of the reviews, and decided to take it there for a second opinion. The only thing wrong with my car... a little rust build up. They are such honest people. And if your car is a total piece like mine, they'll tell you if it's even worth fixing, or they will find you used parts to keep the cost down. I will continue to bring my car here.

Love this place - honest as the day is long - and they take the trouble to find good salvage parts to save you a lot of money. I'll be seeing a lot more of them since we bought a used Volvo Wagon. . . sigh. Right now the tail gate won't open.

My friend and I teach at Minnehaha Academy. He told me about Starr Auto, I told others, and now several teachers from our school go there. Jerry and his staff are great. I totally trust him to do good work and to give me good advice. I strongly recommend Starr!

I have been getting my cars serviced at Starr Auto for a good 10 years now. I have tried many other places in south mpls, but there is NO comparison. These guys are GREAT! They know exactly what they are doing and don't give you any BS. They don't trick you into thinking you are getting a good deal, they just tell it like it is and let you make the decisions. In the event of a tow, it's Starr Auto on 40th and Lake! I get my oil changed there regularly -it's a couple bucks extra but oh so worth it. Get there early and walk down to get a great cup of coffee at Blue Moon! No drama, no stress, Starr Auto is best. The only bummer is: They like their Friday afternoons off.

You know this is a family auto service store and they treat you like family, when you go there or if you call for their opinion on how your care is operating. They are fast and reliable and the fair treatment you get is unmeasurable. I haven't had to 'take my care in' for a while and I know they are just a phone call away (accept they are not open after noon on Fridays and I worry about something happening to my car during that time, smile). I like to keep them my secret!

I brought my vehicle there after i'd had it at the Big Chain auto shops. It kept dying out on me and wouldn't restart for 10 minutes. The other shops either said there was nothing wrong or threw some guess parts in the car. Needless to say the guesses didn't work but they still thought it was o.k. to charge me for their guesses. A friend told me about Starr and i gave them a try. Wow what a great experience, they fixed my car right the first time at a lower price then some places charged for their guesses. I was also informed that the mechanics at those big chains were usually Entry Level guys with little experience. I would recommend Starr to everyone.
