“I’m a local resident. When I moved here 4 years ago. Porter’s was recommended by a neighbor. I have a Subaru with 165,000+ miles and repairs are becoming more frequent. Sandy diagnoses the problem correctly, gives you an up front and fair price, and completes the work right the first time. His state inspections are also fair with no attempt to sell you stuff you don’t need. What more can you ask? Highly recommended!”
– Thomas S.
“Sandy Porter is a straight-up Gentleman. While traveling on our way to California, we experienced auto trouble and stopped in, unannounced, hoping for the best. Many (if not most) shops would have made us wait and charged an hour minimum for the necessary repairs. He came outside while it was snowing, diagnosed and repaired the vehicle and refused payment. Sandy Porter is a True Gentleman. He deserves your business.”
– Joseph E.
“What a great shop! Have always been nervous taking my vehicles to an auto shop. Sandy at Porter Automotive was very honest, helpful and did the repairs fast. I have taken 2 of my vehicles here now and would recommend this shop to anyone. Very reasonably priced!”
– Steve O.
“The service here is beyond excellent. My boyfriend and I were having trouble with his car, and stopped in on our long drive back to California. Sandy was able to fix several things on his car, and gave us advice on how we should proceed when we got back to California. I wish Sandy could be our regular mechanic, I cannot describe how amazing his service was. He even allowed us to borrow his truck to go get breakfast in town while we waited. Trust your car with Sandy!”
– Kat E.
