BWA was suggested to me by my boyfriend after I was disappointed and frustrated with other places. My car is running smooth again and am thankful that I now have a trustworthy auto shop. They are pretty busy, but still get their work done

Work on my car got done quickly and for a fair price. Plus, Oscar was just plain fun to talk to. I recommend Ben White Automotive.

Great timely service. They started work on my car soon after I arrived, got the work done, and I was on my way. None of the lost time (sometimes most of a day) just waiting to get started that I have experienced at other shops. These guys respect your time.
The work was done right; they fixed the problem.

The staff was very nice and knowledgeable. They took the time to explain all my options and why they were doing what they were doing before they did it. What I like the most is that they never tried to up-sale me. The price was lower than other places in the area that I got quotes from and they only did what I needed.

I went to the Walmart at Ben White and I-35 for a quick battery replacement on my lunch break and my water pump went out on my Jeep Cherokee in their parking lot. I didn't have the time and tools to deal with it myself and knew I had to take it somewhere nearby so it wouldn't overheat. Called a few places nearby and Ben White Automotive quoted me the best price by far. Took it there at 5 pm and they had it fixed and handed me my keys by 6:30 pm that same day. Oscar was a true professional, along with the rest of the crew..... it's the only shop in Austin that I recommend to friends and family.

I'm not sure if they're the cheapest. I haven't shopped around much. But they always tell me what they're going to do and how much it's going to cost and when it'll be done. They're usually done a bit faster and they're great to work with. The car always comes back fixed.

We've been going to Ben White Auto for a couple of years now and have never had a problem with them. They have very fair prices and are straightforward and honest with us. We will continue taking our cars to Ben White as long as we are in Austin.

The guys at Ben White are very knowledgable about my car. I went to the Kia dealership because someone had shattered my driver's side mirror while my car was parked, and they said that they would charge me $500 for replacing it. I managed to buy the part online for only $75 dollars and went to Ben White Automotive to have it replaced. They were very friendly, and they told me how long it would take for it to be replaced. 10 minutes later, the repairman was finished with the job and I didn't have to pay anything out of pocket. They also told me about the things I would have to inspect and replace when my car reached 60,000 miles and that they could do it at a cheap price compared to anybody else. The employees were very honest and friendly and I highly recommend them for any auto repair.

I had just broken down off of S. Mopac in the blistering heat. Had my car towed to Ben White Automotive. Not only were they very friendly. they found what was wrong with it and got my car going again. PLUS, since it was a simple problem, they didn't even charge me for it. They charged my battery and brought it back to life. This is a perfect example of an Honorable and Trustworthy Service. Highly recommend them.

I had no idea where to turn when my 06 Saturn Ion started to let off strong fumes. After doing a search of Automotive Repair shops, I stumbled on Ben White Automotive. Their location worked perfectly for me as I live in South Austin. After looking at all of their reviews, I was sold and decided to go check the place out. The men that worked there were very friendly and helped me out quickly. They did a diagnostic on my car and found that I needed a new fuel pump. Although I was upset about the price, I knew that it was fair and they weren't trying to get over on me or anything. As a college student however it was a blow to my bank account. But I digress. I left my car there and by 4 the next day, it was ready to be picked up. It drove great and no more fumes! I will definitely be returning for any problems that I have with my car. I highly recommend Ben White Automotive's services!

A friend recommended me to check this auto service out after he had positive experiences with the manager. I went in for myself, and they ran the codes because my car engine light came on. They told me that was wrong and there was no pressure on getting the car fixed. I told them I could come back the next day, and they trusted me. I actually came back the next day, and they took my car in quickly and spent 2.5 hours looking for what caused emission failure. After calling me to let me know that the emission canister failed, they fixed it to be ready the next day. Not only they replaced the canister, they went ahead and fixed my parking brakes to make sure the lights come off too. (I had both engine light and brake light on prior to dropping it off). When I picked it up, both lights were off. Now I'm ready to take my car in for its annual inspection. Thanks guys at Ben White Auto South!

During the forth of July weekend my cars ""service engine soon"" light appeared on the dash. As soon as I could I considered taking my car to a shop right down the street that I and my family frequently did business with. After carefully considering other options online I came across Ben White Auto on City search which so happened to have very high marks along with high praise from those who have done business there. Although I was reluctant to take my car to another shop I gave it a shot because I was personally tired of never being given another option to a costly repair, and having to take the machanics word over my limited knowledge of what needed to get fixed and what could wait. I was pleased to find that the machanic who I spoke to on the phone at Ben White Auto was willing to give me a second price option even though the repairs were extensive. I have never EVER been given a less expensive option to a repair elsewhere. All together I drove away having spent hundreds less than I would have if I were to do business elsewhere. The staff is courteous and puts the customer first. I will recommend this place to friends and family, and will continue to do business with them. Thanks BWA!

Unbelievable service. they treated me as a person and listen to what I wanted done and then recommended what service should be done to keep my car running and then let me decide on what I wanted done. They did not try to ""up sale"" me. We are a one car family so they set me up with a ride home and then reimbursed me for my rental car.

I told both Oscar and Kevin that I have never felt this good leaving a auto repair shop before. I will never take my car anywhere else.

I've been taking my vehicles to Ben White Automotive for over 15 years. I have total trust in their recommendations. They always repair what needs to be repaired and check for other things that might need repairing/replacing. They don't hesitate to tell me if I don't need something done right now. That's when you know you're dealing with a straight shooter. I have recommended several people to this shop and will continue to do so. Kevin, Oscar and Tomas are all honest men and do their absolute best to satisfy their customers.

I went to a couple shops to have my truck serviced and none of the mechanics that checked my truck before repairs were all that friendly plus they were all conflicting in troubleshooting.

A friend pointed me towards Ben White Automotive saying he swore by their service...so I met Kevin, and his service was nothing short of impeccable. I had my truck go through a major tuneup plus a few other needed replacements.

Now she purrs like a kitten and roars like a TIGER when I give 'er power. Thanks, BWA! Definitely will be coming back for future maintenance!

This is the place you have been searching for. Honest, friendly and hard working. The estimate was fair and after the work was done, it was actually LESS than the estimate. I was given a comprehensive list of other things that were in need of repair and the prices are all more than fair. I was given a taxi voucher to get back home and I couldn't be more pleased with the staff and service. Gentlemen, you have yourselves a new customer and will not hesitate to send other folks your way. Thank you.

Kevin McCollum should be sainted. Time and repair estimates were totally accurate. The best part of this whole experience was that I had gone to Brake Check on 6015 South IH 35 because of an oil leak and power steering fluid leak. I was told I needed an engine rebuild and rack and pinion replaced. $4500-$5500. It's funny how they insisted on the repairs and were hesitant to bring my car off the rack. I left anyway and went to Ben White Automotive for a second opinion. \r
It turns out all I needed was a return hose for the power steering and a dip stick, so after replacing that and power steering flush and oil change; I was out of there in 1 hour for $208.40. This is a far cry from the $5000.00 engine rebuild Brake Check said I needed. My Tracker is operating beautifully, no leaks at all. Kevin and the guys at Ben White Automotive have restored my faith in the auto repair industry. If you want auto repair people you can trust, Ben White Automotive is your place.

Had a good experience taking a vehicle there to have an extensive buyer's check done. They take their work very seriously and offered extensive advice about what they found.

I can tell they were all very good folk, but on the day I went they seemed a little cranky, must have been a Monday! Regardless, I will be going back for my regular maintenance.

These folks are good Austin People. They care about you, they respect cars and they are professional in their approach. Regardless of issue your offered a full solution and then a conversation to tailor the actual scope of work to your present needs; be it time, money or other. Fair and Reasonable...can't ask for more than that can you.

My Trailblazer was failing to reach operating temperature. I made my own diagnosis of a stuck thermostat. After purchasing the parts to ""do it myself"" I realized that the thermostat placement made the job more than I wanted to tackle.

I dropped in on Ben White Automotive on a Monday morning, and they were able to answer my questions and offer the labor at a competitive price. The technician took the time to check for engine codes and confirm my diagnosis before beginning work. The complicated job was completed in a reasonable amount of time and for exactly the quoted amount. The vehicle now warms quickly and operates exactly as designed.

My only quibble is that the old upper radiator hose was reinstalled rather than the new one that was provided on the passenger floorboard. Rather than return to the shop, I completed the simple exchange myself.

I recommend Ben White Automotive South for the great attitude and competence of its employees coupled with fair prices.

Shop is nothing fancy, but the people working there know what they are doing. Oscar will help you with just about anything.
Oscar will tell you whats wrong, not what you want to hear.
Took truck into a Firestone for a spongy brake pedal, and was told my brake lines were leaking and would have to be replaced, somewhere around $1000. Too steep, and didn't trust 'em. Ben White looked at it, the master cylinder was broken. $600 and some change and there have been no brake problems since.
All three cars have been going there for almost 2 years.
Don't trust your car with anyone but Ben White.

The staff at Ben White Automotive are great. They looked over my car, and then came back with an honest estimate of what was needed for repair and what was suggested. They explained in very simple terms what options were available for my car repair, but didn't pressure me into getting any more services than were needed. I would definitely go to them again.

I had an issue with my brakes recently. They were done by another shop and did a bad job. These guys not only told me what was wrong, but showed me exactly what was going on with my truck and why. They fixed it right and I will be taking my wife's car there soon for a tune-up and alignment. I also liked the fact that there were no surprise charges. The estimate he gave me is what I paid when I picked up my truck. Many thanks to Ben White Auto.

As a mother of 2 teenage drivers, I need a mechanic I can trust to not only work on their cars but my car as well.

Ben White Automotive does this!!

Oscar and the crew have never let my family down. Honest, reputable and just a darn good shop. No other shop compares to Ben White Automotive South.

As you can see from my daughter's (joc8468) comments on 7/26/10, she is very satisfied as well!

I was very pleased with the service that I received. I had an issue with my steering in which I had already spent over $1000 trying to fix, with no resolution. After a free diagnosis, I was directed to another shop where I could get an alignment. My problem was fixed for under a hundred dollars and Ben White Auto received nothing. I will return because it is hard to find honesty and good service in the auto repair business. It appears that this shop has both.

Found this shop through City Search, and I have to say I was pleased by the service. I just went in for a regular oil change.

The shop seems incredibly busy though so if you can't or don't want to wait, make sure you have someone who can pick you up or you can have the shop drive you if you live nearby.

I had a 60 thousand mile service done in April. Everything that was needed was explained to me and I was treated courteously when I asked my multitude of questions. I find the staff trustworthy and will be bringing my car here from now on.

I had a 60 thousand mile service done in April. Everything that was needed was explained to me and I was treated courteously when I asked my multitude of questions. I find the staff trustworthy and will be bringing my car here from now on.

I am Brandon M. - 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GT. I come from a very small town called Shiner where we have old family friends that are mechanics that we trust. Its hard to move to a new, big city and find a mechanic you can truly trust. I have found the total package - honesty, trust and excellent, speedy service. The people at Ben White Automotive know what they are doing. There is no BS! They have saved me over $1000 and counting in just 1 week alone. I had many repairs to do on my car and they didn't keep my car for days! Same day service is great. My 1999 now rides like a 2010! I recommend you to check this shop out if you ever need service. You guys down there at the shop - Keep up the good work and know that you have my business! - Brandon M

I can't have something wrong with my car every time I take it in. I'm a college student, I'm poor!

Ben White Auto is the place to go. The inside of the shop is pretty small and hidden off the frontage road of I35.. but if you can find it, you won't be disappointed.

Oscar is a friendly, joking guy who sits in the front and will tell you what's wrong with your car (the real truth!)

He will tell you how quickly things need to be fixed, and isn't the type to make something up to take your money (like most car shops).

I'll continue to take my car there, and you should too!

Pros: Friendly Treatment

Handled a variety of difficult mechanical problems well. Repairs required searching for hard to find parts for an old car that I wanted to bring back. I was completely satisfied.

Pros: Knowledgeable, compentent and resourceful

Cons: Kinda hard to discover

.

I was greeted very enthusiastically and was treated very well throughout the service. I received an oil change and after a thorough check of my car, they found some additonal issues (of course, right?!). But they were honest and said that none of it required immediate attention. This will help me trust them in the future when something does require immediate repair. I'm definitely going back!!

Cons: Waiting room was a little toasty

I'm overly skeptic w/ mechanics but have finally found a shop I trust. They did the work that was needed and nothing else. Everyone working there was extremely knowledgable, courteous, and got right to the root of my problem without running out the clock. \r

I strongly reccommend this shop.

I had engine check light on & needed catalytic converter to be replaced. Went to Ben White Automotive & met Oscar - Very nice & personable guy. He explained in detail the issue and solution. He gave me a quote which I later found to be the best amongst all others that I had probed. Also guided me regarding best time to come & time it will take & they were right on target. I found the staff to be very co-operative, customer-centric & friendly. Also their work was very satisfactory. I would recommend them to my friends and from now on it is my car-repair of first choice :-)

driving my 2001 chevy 1500, i pushed in the clutch, it popped and hit the floor. I thought it was probably just a busted cable nothing serious. i had it towed to Leanords Garage on south first . they said it was the slave clinder, it needed to be replaced and with the mileage on the truck they recommended i replace the clutch since the transmission had to be dropped. the quote they gave me, 2200.00. I called Ben White Automotive and told Oscar exactly what was recommended and asked for a quote. Oscar
quoted me 1075.00 for parts and labor, half the price of Leanords for the same parts and labor. I had the truck towed to Ben White automotive. Oscar told me that it was only the clutch peddle that had broken, he said they had replaced the clutch peddle and he drove the truck and the clutch was fine. The truck did not need a new clutch. Oscar recommened that the parking brake release be fixed and he also tacked the bumper that had come loose. all this plus towing........475.00. Now isnt this the way it should be.

Pros: look to fix the problem, personable,

My husband and I have taken our car there several times and the staff is always friendly and willing to explain what they will be doing to the car. They tell you how long the work will take and never take longer than they estimated they would.

We went to Ben White Automotive (South) to get the timing belt and water pump changed on my daughter's 1996 Accord (4 Cylinders) . We called around for prices and they were lower than others. My other daughter and son in-law had taken their cars to them and spoke very well of their service. So Friday morning we met a gentleman at the front desk named Oscar who was very friendly and provided an estimate of changing timing belt, water pump and two other auxiliary belts upfront. He said he would call later with more details as they got into it. He called about mid day about other issues with my car and his honest advice about whether I could delay/neglect those issues. We decided to replace the front axles. They did not finish Friday but they worked Saturday so my daughter would have the car for work Monday morning. The repairs actually cost more than estimated but they adjusted the bill by over a hundred dollars and honored their original estimate. Four weeks later I was changing the oil and replacing the faulty oxygen sensor that showed up in their report. Replacing sensor got the ""Check Engine"" light to go out. But the new oil I was pouring in was leaking onto the drive. I called them Monday at 9 AM and they said bring it in. It turned out a faulty PCV valve allowed too much pressure to build and caused the new valve cover gasket to leak. They replaced the PCV valve and the valve cover gasket by early afternoon. They did this at no extra charge even though the PCV valve was not in their scope of work. It's running great. These folks really care about doing a good job for a fair price. I highly recommend them. Thanks guys.

Cons: None.

These guys know their stuff. I am in a financial spot to where I can only afford to buy used cars, so needless to say, I need a great auto mechanic. I ONLY TRUST THEM TO WORK ON MY CAR, NO ONE ELSE. They are honest, straight forward and to the point. If they are a little more than ""Pep Boys"" or some other Mickey Mouse auto place, it is because it is going to get done right. That has been my experience.

I have been a Ben White Automotive customer for over four years. \r
I took my car in recently three times for the same problem - a simple fuel leak repair. Each time I was charged for the service, even though each time Ben White Automotive declared the problem ""repaired"" and claims to have a one year warranty on repairs. Total bill nearly $400.\r
I had them install some suspension accessories and engine mounts - a job that a previous mechanic had charged me $161 to do (identical car)....Ben White Automotive charged $312. \r
Each time I have taken my car there it takes them two to three days to complete jobs that should take half a day (i.e. transmission service). \r
They don't look for or find problems, and leave the interior of my car covered with grease.\r
I think they have gotten quite carried away with their success. In the past they were reasonably priced, and did a great job, quickly. No more.

Went to Ben White Automotive (South) to get my timing belt changed on 01 Camry (4 Cylinders) as part of 90K miles preventive maintenance. Gentleman at the front desk named Oscar was very friendly tech who provided estimated cost of changing timing belt and two other auxiliary belts upfront. He later followed up with a phone call about other minor issues with my car and his honest advice about whether I can delay/neglect those issues. In the end, the bill was very much what he estimated earlier. Most importantly, I waited two weeks before I write this review to see if car is running fine/developing any problems. It's running great. Timing belt is crucial part of our cars AND these folks do awesome job, I highly recommend. Thanks guys.

Pros: Customer friendly and fairly priced

I took my car here and the front desk help was very friendly and so was the mechanic who called me to let me know what needed to be done to the car. I was told what was needed to be done and when I didn't have the money for all the work at one time they did not pressure me like a lot of places do. I finally was able to go back and complete the work and I am very happy with the way my car runs now. I would definitely recommend them.
