Avoid. They are almost twice as expensive as their competitors. I have used them several times and the last two times I've gone I've been gouged. Seem like great guys but they will take advantage of you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

I have been going to Summerfield auto for a couple of years now for everything from breaks to an oil change. I have never been dissatisfied and I never feel forced to make a repair that is not yet necessary. I recently had a sqeeking issue coming from my rear suspension area. After taking my car to carmax (where I bought it) and getting the run-around, I took it to Trent at Summerfield. Keep in mind that the repairs at carmax were going to cost over $1000. Trent put my car in the air, shook the car to make the noise appear and went to get a stethoscope with a special attachment for finding the source of a noise. Another tech pulled up and down on the car again, making the noise. Trent went to get a bolt gun, took off 2 bolts, removed a bar and then bent a piece of metal back in place. He replaced the bar and bolts and the noise was gone! FIVE MINUTES vs. an overnight stay at carmax and my car was fixed! And it definitely didn't cost $1000!!! Just the type of great service I've come to know and expect at Summerfield! I live in Rock Hill, but I still drive the 30 minutes it takes to get to Summerfield because I know things will be done right the first time and I won't be overcharge or be led to think that I need to replace a part when I really don't.

I trust this auto repair shop to do a good job at a fair price. The mechanics seem to be very skilled and able to fix problems other shops miss. They usually can get your car right in also.

Summerfield provides good customer service for the money. They do not try to sell you more than what you need for your car so you don't feel like you have been taken advantage of. Rozelle is very good at fixing cars.

Being Honest is not Unethical Posted on 01/31/2008
Car was towed in with a engine noise complaint. Technicians found a thick sludge build up on the dipstick and in the crankcase. This sludge indicated that the car hadn't received regular maintenance. She had used us before, but it was only once the month before and it was for a coolant sensor repair. So we had no other knowledge of her history. She also forgot to mention the speedometer didn??t work so true mileage is unknown. We attempted to remove the sludge build up, but it was not enough to restore oil press. Even a properly working oil pump would not pick up thick sludge.( it would be like sucking mud through a straw.) As a company we have to be able to stand behind any repairs we perform, and having our customers spend their money on a repair that may or may not repair their car is not our practice. She asked about selling the car so her info was passed to Mr.Poolyear. He owns a car lot and he made the offer.We do not buy or sell cars and would not profit from buying her car.

As a single woman, having my vehicle repaired in the past has always been a daunting task. Now as a single mother, it has become an even worse experience than before. However, my experience with Summerfield has made servicing my high-end vehicle painless and somewhat enjoyable!! \r
\r
A few weeks ago, my vehicle stalled in the middle of traffic during rush-hour. Of course, this was two days before out-of-town guests were due in. My first thought was to call Summerfield. Since it was late in the day, the Park Road location was in the process of closing. However, Adam assured me that not only would he request a tow truck (with flat-bed) for me, but would wait and have someone take me to pick-up my daughter and take us both home (free of charge, I reviewed my bill thoroughly). The next day my car was repaired, washed and waiting for my pick-up!!!\r
\r
As Summerfield was highly recommended to me, I now recommend them to everyone I know!!! I plan to utilize Summerfield, for all of my vehicle routine and non-routine maintenance services.\r
\r
Thank you, I truly appreciate you guys!!!!\r

I've taken my car there twice. They try to upsell you everything. I was charged $131 to replace a fuse.

Pros: Fixed my car

Cons: Way too expensive

I went to buy a used Jeep Cherokee- and took it Summerfield for an inspection. We had never been there before but its convenient to where I work, and it was hitghly reccomended on Angie's List.\r
\r
Their thorough work found that the vehicle's frame was rusting apart- and that the vehicle was not safe or a good deal. I ended up buying another car thanks to these guys that wasnt a lemon.\r
\r
We have since taken our cars there for all work - and they helped us save money on our other car by giving us a thorough report on a problem, and we took that info to the dealership who had to do the repairs once Summerfield helped us find that it was a KNOWN problem.\r
\r
I trust then more than any repair shop in the CHarlotte Metro area.

I recently moved here from the Tampa area. I had a mechanic that I used for years, and was not sure that I would find that same up here outside of a dealership. I was referred to Summerfield?s by a friend, and I am truly pleased. They came and picked up my car at no extra charge to find out why it was cutting off. After a couple hours Tim called me back with the results of there testing and said that a major repair was not needed, just some minor work. His detailed explanations and professionalism, really made me feel comfortable, like I have been going there for years. After he gave me my estimate and finished the work, Trent arranged to have the car brought the car back to my place of work. I felt the price was very reasonable; they even have a car wash and detail service. I have never experienced this kind of service, I am truly happy with my new mechanics.

I have 3 vehicles and whenever they need work done, I take them to Summerfield on Cama. A neighbor referred me to them and I do not take my cars anywhere else. Tim and Trent are great guys to deal with and friendly! Most recently, I brought one of my cars in to get it worked on and I new it was going to be a problem, but they took care of it.\r
Thanks guys!\r

Summerfiled has outstaniding customer service. I recently took my car to their Waxhax, NC location for service and new tires. Doug, the location manager was very informative on different types of tires. He assisted me as a customer to make the right buying decision taking into consideration on what was right for me financially. I needed several types of repairs and with today's economy told me what was priority to make my car safe for my son and myself. He did not sell me on price. He sold me on integrity. That matters!!!!!! I wll use Summerfield Automotive from now on. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Being a single mom is hard enough at least now I know I have an auto repair shop on my side.

This is my first review but i was so impressed with the customer service the little to non-existant wait and the fact that I was treated as a normal human being with knowledge and understanding really impressed me.\r
Normally when you go to a repair shop they just tell you in all kinds of terminology you dont understand that something is wrong and its going to cost this amount of money. At summerfield the guys were courteous and took the time out to explain what was wrong with my car, I didnt feel forced to make a bank altering decision in a matter of seconds. They drove me home so I didnt have to wait at the shop for the work to be done. I had some trouble finding a ride back to pick up my car, I thought for sure that I was going to have to wait till the next day to pick it up but even though the shop was closed one of the guys waited for me so I wasnt with out a car!!! I am going to recomend this repair shop to all my buddys and to all who reads this review if you want excellent service and to feel like your on the same page as the repair shop go to Summerfield!!!

I love this place, they came and picked up my car again, did 2 tires and an oil change by noon. Priced fairly, on time and courteous, their driver Ronnie is great, one of the best people I have meet. Thanks Tim for all you do, keep it going.

I have been using Summerfield Auto for for about 2 years now, and I don't think it gets any better.\r
Lets face it nobody really likes to deal with car repairs, but they always make it as painless as possible.\r
When my wife told me she liked the place, I knew we had found a winner. They even give me a ride to and\r
from work FREE, I never got that type of treatment in Rochester.

I took my car into Summerfield's around last March -- I actually had to have it towed in to them. I had used them for some other small work, as had my sister, and thought they seemed pretty good. To make a long story short they told me my engine in my VW Beetle was ""gone"" and needed to be replace. Shortly thereafter, while I was trying to decide what to tdo they offered me $750 for my car, my car with a good engine is worth about $8000. Since the car was just out of warranty (109,000miles), I decided to fight with VW about it before making any decisions. I had the car towed back to my house.\r
\r
After months of arguing with VW I decided to call around and see about getting a rebuilt motor in the car. I purposely called other shops to get a ""second opinion"" and to use a place that specialized in VW's. Well, the first two calls I made were surprising, both companies virtually guarenteed me that my engine was not ""gone"". I subsequently took my car to one of them in Charlotte and they fixed my car for $528, it was only an oil pump problem. My car by the way has now been running fine for over three months -- because of Summerfiled's diagnosis I ended up buying a new car I did not need, and still now don't need because I needed a car to get to and from work and do all the other myriad of things I have to do each week with my car.\r
\r
Based on this I think that Summerfiled's tried to take advantage of me (a single woman by the way) by telling me my car was dead, buying it from me for ridiculous price, fixing it and then selling it to make themselves a tidy little profit -- to the tune of about $8000!

I have used Summerfield for years and have recommended them to many friends. I've also been happy until yesterday. Being a loyal customer, I had taken my car there because of an oil leak. Diagnosis - I need a new Oil Pump; along with the routine oil change and inspection, my quote came to $830. I don't know a thing about cars, so I am lucky enough to have coworkers to assist me in this- First thing that seemed odd was one of them just had the same work performed there a few months ago (via my referral) and he only paid $500..... We quickly called two DEALERSHIPS (Toyota) and both were half the cost of Summerfield. When I can get the work done at the Dealership for half the cost (Total $427) , that says something about how Summerfield is trying to take advantage of the situation and grossly overcharge.... This is why I am moving on and Summerfield has lost a loyal customer - and the individuals I have referred, will be leaving as well..

Prices were not competitive but they explained it was because of the better-than-average service. The folks at the shop were kind but we've had nothing but problems with the work they did - Including two different shops commenting on the cheap parts used and poor quality of the workmanship.
