You Don't Have to Take Our Word for It!

Here's what some of our satisfied customers have to say about High Gear Automotive Inc.:


Frank C.

We moved to Englewood, Fl in August, 2011. In December 2011, I developed a front brake squeal on my Dodge Grand Caravan. On December 13th I made an appointment with High Gear Automovive. After first diagnosing the problem and giving me an estimate, they replaced the front brake pads and turned the rotors. The work was done right at a reasonable price. I had been going to them ever since. I trust them and they have earned my trust. As an added bonus, their waiting room is clean, bright and comfortable.

My neighbor recommended these guys. I usually do all my own maintenance but tire changing and alignment are things that should be left to the experts. They called to tell me it was done, at that point I was informed that there were a couple other issues but none of them a big enough deal to warrant repair. First, thanks to the person I spoke with for pointing me in the right direction, I will fix those issues in the near term. Second, the alignment is awesome! My subby drives like a dream now and the bill was less than expected... I will certainly be back!

Always friendly, always efficient and they always try to satisfy your needs. I have never left their super clean place dissatisfied.

If you aren't seeing Patrick at High Gear on the Ave. of the Americas, you're probably getting ripped off. Excellent shop!

Steve C.

Last minute appointment. Took me immediately on arrival. Resolved the issue quickly and economically. Can't ask for more.

Have been using High Gear for several years now to service 2 vehicles. Their work, advice, service, and honesty can't be beat - and all at a fair price. Bottom-line, I trust them!

Bob E.

Always the best service and advice. It is very difficult to find a place that performs high quality work consistently and at a fair price. My thanks for always being cheerful and courteous - no matter what!

Paul N.

This is a great place. Makes fixing your car fun. Great people, great prices, go there !!!

Patrick and Thad run a top notch repair shop. High Gear has worked on our cars and trucks for nearly 7 years. EVERYTHING they do is perfect or they don't send it out on the road. Over 200,000 miles of service. We are extremely satisfied!

I was in Florida visiting my parents and stopped in before heading back to CT to have things checked over, and this place was recommended. I have to say, they were absolutely amazing. Not only did the owner Thad spend nearly 10 minutes answering questions I had about whether I should trade in my car and what makes have the best track record (the transmission is starting to act up), they didn't charge me anything for the service or try to sell me something it didn't need! I wish I lived nearby so I could make them my go-to mechanic.

How often do you actually feel GOOD about paying for auto service? It's pretty rare. But that's how I feel about this shop. The quality of work at the shop is rare, too. I obtained service on my 2005 Toyota 4Runner at a different local shop. 200 miles later the engine had a major problem; that mechanic said I needed a new engine, and didn't believe the new problem was related to his recent work. Patrick heard the story and suggested he might be able to repair the engine at half the cost of a new (used) one. In deed, he did that, and identified the problem caused at the prior shop. Few mechanics have the formal training that Patrick has (his partner is one of them). Add to that, their professionalism, honesty, friendly staff out front. They told me what service was worth doing, and work isn't worth it. It's SO satisfying to know that I've found MY mechanic for as long as I live in the area.

Don't you wish you could find competent and fair mechanics who will treat your car and your wallet just like their own? People who will shoot you absolutely straight on what's needed, and just as importantly, on what isn't needed? In short, folks you can trust completely? Well, if you're reading this review of High Gear Automotive, then you have found them.

My experience with High Gear over the years has been excellent. The owners, staff and mechanics are very knowledgeable and capable on both import and domestic cars and trucks. Diagnostics with my car problems are quite thorough and their recommendations have me as the customer in mind. They are very good in correctly resolving the most difficult issues. High Gear is a no nonsense organization that gets the job done promptly, efficiently and at a very reasonable cost. Give them a try, they provide top notch service and are very customer friendly. Their waiting room is very clean, bright and comfortable.
