Change of plans this Labor Day weekend. Ended up stranded in Monroe. Our trip over the mountains to a friend's cabin cut short by an all day car repair. Made the most of it with some nice exploring, eating good food and family time.

Life's not about the destination. It is about enjoying the journey!

But the best part of the journey was how the folks at Candidos made what was a frustrating, expensive and lengthy detour about as good as it could get. They stuck to their word around the time it would take and ended up charging us a lot less than the other quotes we looked into.

I highly recommend this place. Also helps that the mechanic (owner?) was a super professional guy who also is learning to fly helicopters! My 13 year old son commented on how he obviously loves what he does and is good at it. I agree.

I brought my truck in to get a new fuel pump. The markup on the part was $200 compared to online and $100 compared to the local stores. However, it was Saturday afternoon and the local stores were out of stock so I needed to pay the markup in order to have my truck ready for work on Monday. I picked it up just before they closed that same day and drove straight home to pick up the family. After getting the kids ready we came out and saw one of the tires was completely deflated. They were closed for the rest of the weekend so I hooked up the spare, and left work early later the same week to get them to fix it. They tore the sidewall of the tire, I just wanted them to repair the damage they clearly caused, which in this case meant a new tire. They refused and acted like I was trying to hustle them or something. The markup on the part was over the top, but if I had time I could have got the part elsewhere. However, I would NEVER EVER recommend a shop who refuses to repair damage they clearly caused. For all I know, they might have done the damage on purpose trying to get more money out of me. I will never be back and I recommend everyone else avoid them as well.

Best and most reasonable priced auto repair and tire shop I've ever been to in 20 years. Friendly staff, fast quality service every time I have had work on my vehicles done there. And prices are great.

very bad service shop would not comply with their warranty of repairs, they replaced my car engine and after a week it would break again, took it back and he charged me again to take a look at it and said he will not fix it again because the engine he installed was defective and it was not his fault. I have a paid receipt that states that I have a 1 year warranty!! see you in court candido

I needed a tune up so I brought it to Candidos by word of mouth and when I got there I got a friendly greeting and lets check it out, I was scared at first cause I knew it was also time for my transmission to be flushed, but the quote he gave me was like no way and said yes yes please do it, with in two hours it was complete and top notch!!!!

My car broke down just outside of Monroe City on a Saturday. Not too many mechanics are available on the weekends but Candido's is one that is open. I called them and they arranged for a tow truck to get my car to the shop. My serpentine belt had fell off because the tensioner had disintegrated. They had a new tensioner installed, belt replaced all within 90 minutes. The cost was unbelievable! $150 including the tow.

I checked around with several places before going to Candido's to have the CV axle replaced. The placed I checked said, it could be this....it could be that...couldn't get to the car for 2 days, 3 days, make an appointment a week out. I went to Candido's, I was greeted professionally, I told them what I needed done, they gave me an exact quote, and also said 1 hour. Said they could do it "now". I went downtown and did some shopping and was back in 45 mins, the car was done and ready to go! Best service around! Stan-Monroe

I called three auto repair places before I found Candidos. Candidos told me up front how much I would have to pay and not any more. They were the cheapest price to install new rotors and pads,They said two hours and it took only two hours. The car I drove, not only stops better, it drives smoother on the road. The old brake rotors had almost 170,000 miles on them. These rotors are new, not refurbished. I had to call twice to get through. The first time I got a wrong number. The second time someone answered in Spanish. I thought I had got a wrong number again. I asked in English, "Is this Candidos auto repair?" They said they were and I told them what I needed....Mark.

This firm was recommended to me by friends I trust and now I'm sending more customers to them. My only worry is that they become too busy to fit my vehicles in when I need repairs!!

The estimates and final bills are almost half of what my former repair shop was charging. The work is completed ahead of schedule most of the time and always to my satisfaction.

The owner will call if they notice something outside the original estimate, to get permission prior to going ahead. Nice touch! I'm very pleased to have found them and will continue taking all my vehicles to them for repair or regular maintainance.

The staff speaks English as a 2nd language, so at times it is difficult to understand them, especially over the phone.
