Friendly, knowledgeable, informed, professional staff.
WE had a problem over the weekend, we are not from Santa Fe so the tow truck dropped our car off at Automotive Resources. We couldn't have been happier with the service we received. Anthony Vigil and the mechanic took time to explain the process, what they found. They even directed us to an awesome breakfast place to wait. Highly recommend.
Good honest mechanic
Friendly, honest service at reasonable prices. Offers a AAA discount as well.
I highly recommend this service shop for top notch communication. And same date turn around. Free shuttle service too!
Amazing customer service! Great prices, very professional workmanship!
This is a great shop to get your car back on the road.
We have always had the best service possible with AR. The people who answer the telephones are friendly and courteous, Anthony has been wonderful in explaining exactly what is going with our cars, and appointments are always easy to get. We will go to AR as long as we have a car.
Any time I need help with my 23 year old car I take it to Tom Hitch at AR where it gets immediate attention while I get a ride back home from Tom or one of the friendly service people. This has happened quite a few times during the ten years that Tom has serviced the car. Along with getting fast service I get a thorough explanation of what work was done and advise about maintenance. The cost has never been as high as it would be at a brand dealer. My 1993 BMW 325i is in excellent condition and soon to become a classic. PS: You don't need a fancy car to get good affordable service from Tom.
From repairs to detailing they do a great job
Been going to them for a couple years... Excellent service and they go beyond to fix problems... Coming up with unique ideas to fix problems.... Very professional attitude.
We are passing through with our RV and my dually pickup was acting a bit weird in the transmission. I chose Automotive Resources based on all the positive reviews. After filling out some forms with Anthony, he gave me a quote and I left the pickup with them. The owner, Tom, even drove me back to our RV Park, which was 10 miles out of town. At the end of the day, the pickup was finished and Tom returned to the RV park to get us. The service was done exactly as described and for the amount given in the quote. They also went through all the fluid levels and made sure we wouldn't have any problems going on the rest of our trip. These guys served us well and got us on the road again.
The last thing i wanted on a cross country road trip was car trouble. I didn't realize initially how lucky I was to have that problem in Santa Fe. Tom and the Automotive Resources staff were lifesavers. They worked me into their busy schedule on the Friday before Memorial Day and had be back on the road by lunch. I was fortunate to find such professionals!
A long-time member of AAA, I nevertheless have only had two occasions to use the service...the second one was just a week or so ago when my battery lost enough of its charge so that the car wouldn't start. AAA promptly got me started again but advised that I really needed to plan on replacing my battery. I started on getting estimates. A Dealer quoted $175 +/-, a parts story quoted in the $140 range and a tire place quoted just a bit lower than that. But a friend of mine suggested I check Automotive Resources. They are affiliated with AAA and with the discounts available, quoted under $120, so I made an appointment for the following day and brought my car in to them. They were the ultimate professionals, taking my car and checking the old battery, confirming that it would be wise to replace it, and installing the new one in less than an hour, all the while making my waiting time easy and productive (they had wi-fi available). They went through the bill with me...which ended up a bit less than the original estimate...and when I left, was pleasantly surprised to see that i did not need to reset my clock or radio...something that a dealer had left undone some years earlier. I would highly recommend Automotive Resources to anyone looking for dependability and professionalism. I intend to have all of my regular automotive servicing done there from now on.
Always a positive experience. With vintage cars, you need a shop like this.
Thank you Tom! Reasonably priced and made breaking down painless! I was on a road trip from Kansas to AZ with my boyfriend and dog when my car broke down ~100 miles from Santa Fe. AAA towed us to this shop and Tom waited for us almost an hour after closing. He gave us a ride to the hotel and even a good restaurant recommendation to go to that night. When I called at 9 am the next morning my jeep was already ready and someone came to pick us up at the hotel!
My Mazda Tribute suddenly would not start at 11:00 pm far from home. AAA came and I had them take it here. First thing in the morning, Anthony called. After discussing, Anthony had the fuel pump replaced in record time and back to me as I was unable to get a rent a car. I am so grateful for their care and concern.
Five stars all around. I'm always pleased when I enter and when I leave.
I really like these guys and the service they give my vehicles.
The free checkup on my car was very thorough. I was pleased.
I have always found Auto Resources to provide comprehensive advice and workmanship.
Honest work, attention to detail, and willingness to keep working on a problem until it's solved are all big pluses. The staff is knowledgeable and courteous and their amenities - such as the free shuttle service - are much appreciated.
The technicians are great and I've had very positive experiences with each of them.
I have nothing but praise for AR. In my many appointments the entire staff was courteous, concerned and efficient. They go beyond the ordinary to keep my 14 year old SAAB running well. I appreciate this organization greatly.
Excellent service with each visit to this shop. The quotes are thorough, the prices are reasonable, and everyone there is professional and friendly. I will be back.
This is such a great place to use as a mechanic because I am absolutely certain that i'm getting the best service possible. I recommend them. I get the most accurate, HONEST assessment of what work needs to be done. And then the work gets done correctly and all is well.
I'd like to take this opportunity recommend this outstanding auto repair shop. I unexpectedly broke down outside of Santa Fe and called them to see if they could diagnose the problem asap and they said no problem, that someone would be there whenever I arrived...I was towed there and they acommodated me right away, found the issue and got on ordering parts. While I waited they gave me a ride down to Trader Joe's, yay! Unfortunately my part took overnight to get and as I was from out of town they gave me a ride to the store and a local hotel to stay, rescheduled other jobs to get me back on the road as quickly as possible, installed the parts by noon the next day and picked me up. I was treated with utter respect, courtesy, professionalism and friendliness by ALL of the owners and employees and the best was made out of a bad situation!! Thumbs up, thanks guys!!!
These folks did a routine oil change for me on my Fiat 500, a service that is not all that easy to find in Santa Fe as a special filter is required and there is no Fiat dealership here. I then went to them for advice on 2 other occasions and they gave me spot on information and good advice each time without charge. On one of these occasions, when I went to ask about a fluid leak, they noted a sound in the engine that they didn't like and correctly diagnosed a problem with the thrust bearings. Since my car was still under warranty, they directed me to the ABQ dealership and even looked up the number. They also wisely advised that I have the vehicle towed to avoid more damage. 3 professionals at Automotive Resources actually took an interest in my problem. I appreciated this even more 3 weeks later when the dealership was still "working" on my car. Automotive Resources inspires and deserves customer loyalty.
Anthony is what every business of any kind needs for customer support. He returns calls and calls back when he said he would. Very good service and I will recommend anybody to come here.
Anthony has excellent customer skills and while away from home he helped me at a time when I needed repairs on my cars. He was very thorough in communicating what had happened to my vehicle, procured the parts in a timely manner, and didn't change the scope of repairs. Excellent service.
Great service, efficient, and fast. Very friendly staff. My special thanks to Anthony.
Tom is helpful and nice and I will always consider him a friend. He went beyond professional responsibilities to help me obtain and repair my cars. I owe him a lot even though I may never be able to pay him back for all he has done, my gratitude is eternal. My Fiat 124 Sport is still running great. Talk about standing out and attracting attention.
I appreciate the cheery atmosphere created by office staff and the explanations of work done on my vehicle.
I believe the people who work here are highly skilled and exceedingly nice. They are delightful in mechanics and in friendliness.
I am always treated with respect. They tend to my automobile with the care of an orthopedic surgeon. Also, they are honest and nice.
I have used them for 10 years. Great service, and reasonable prices for repairs. Service employees are always friendly, and go out of their way to explain details of repair.
We own three Hondas and Automotive Resources has maintained them all for several years. We've always been pleased with their work. They never try to sell extra service we don't need and we've always felt that we were driving reliable cars, once they checked them over. Try them out before believing the disgruntled reviews on this page. (BTW we aren't connected to AR in any way apart from being customers). The AAA discount is nice.
