Explore our impressive testimonials

"I took my 2010 Lexus ES350 in for its 60,000 mile service (basically a tune-up), and I'd highly recommend A1.  They provide honest, clean, and great service. The owner answers the phone, did the service write up, and is completely involved in the business."

- Dave G. via Yelp


"If you are looking for an auto company that will go above and beyond, you should look no further! I took my car in after having a horrible experience with an auto company in Florida, and they went far beyond what I could ever have expected to fix the problems with my car. Jon, the owner, was kind and helpful each time we brought it in. His mechanics are wonderfully helpful as well and looked like they truly enjoyed being at work. This place takes care of those that come in to see them. They are worth the drive if you live in New Haven or Hartford!"

- Courtney L. via Yelp


"This is the most trustworthy group of mechanics in eastern CT. They care far more about customer satisfaction and car care than making a cheap buck. The owner is as honest and loyal as he is competent. You will not get talked into unnecessary products or be bullied into pointless services. They understand the value of quality service and loyalty. Don't choose another "big name" chain auto care business over A-1. They take care of our employer's fleet of tired vehicles, and these guys take great care of some real challenges without taking advantage of our vehicle maintenance budget. This is an A++ business."

- John C. via Yelp


"The guys at A-1 are amazing! My car broke down in Guilford when I was headed home to Old Saybrook. I called around, and they had the best prices and service without contest. They saved me a bunch of money and were a pleasure to work with. I highly recommended this business."

"The service was amazing. They are quick and reliable. You talk directly to the owner of the store, and he is completely honest with you. If your car needs to be fixed, he will do it quickly. They do not hold your car like other car shops. The prices are unbeatable. He gives a quote, tells you the market cost of the parts, and how much he gets for them. If the repairs go over what he estimated, he does not charge. I have no complaints, and I will definitely go there every time my car needs repairs."

- Ryland C. via Google


"This is the kind of place you want to bring your car! The mechanics know what they are doing, and they take every step to make sure you walk out with your car in perfect condition. I took my car here after having a bad experience with another auto shop, and they went above and beyond to help me. Jon, the owner, is friendly and helpful for those who don't know much about cars. He explained everything that was going on with my car in a way that was easy to understand. He was even willing to take me back to actually look at the car while they were working on it. I don't think I could say anything bad about this place. If you have a car, take it here!"

"While traveling to Guilford from out of town, I had some trouble with my car on the way and wanted to make sure it was safe to drive. Despite my fear of getting raked as an out-of-towner, I was able to get an appointment to have my car looked at the same day.  It was conveniently located, and I was impressed by the clean waiting area with free coffee and tea, free wireless, and a wonderful playroom that my daughter adored. The mechanics were fast, courteous, and way undercharged me for their time.  My only trouble was getting my daughter to leave. If I lived closer, I would take my car there all of the time."
