Midtown Auto Service & Repair Testimonials

Here's what others have to say about their experience at Midtown Auto Service & Repair:


I was amazed this auto repair shop was located between the heart of downton / medical center. I moved into the neighborhood and his shop was one of the closest shop near my house so I decided to visit him. His shop was very clean compared to other shops I visited in the past. The shop was very well equipped so I had confidence to leave my car there to be repaired on. To my surprise, he was very pleasing to work with and got my car out quickly.

I have a old car I should probably get rid of but its runs so good I keep it. I had a problem the other day, the car didn't start. Normally I fix my own cars but this time I had to bring it to a shop. I was referred by my friend so I took it there. He did a diagnostic on it and told me the problem and had it fixed that same day. I don't normally like mechanics but this guy there was pretty cool. He knew his stuff well you could tell.

I broke down on the freeway and a tow truck driver recommended this shop. He fixed my car that same day and recommended other repairs that I knew I needed anyways. Also, I knew I was at the right place because the owner or manager knew all these customers in the waiting area by name and they all said good things about him. What a lifesaver.
- Charles McDonald
I came in there worried about me fixing my car and thinking I was going to spend alot of money. On the contrary, I saved alot and got my car fixed right. Thank you Citysearch for the recommendation.
- cherryfrost
I found this place via citysearch and through AAA. They offer friendly and proffesional service. They quickly located the problem and fixed my car within a day. If you are looking for a place to fix your car, this place is your one stop for everything, he is fully certified for automotive repair. :) Stop looking around!

I had gone to the dealer because my 2001 toyota camry had alignment problems and the dealer said that there was frame damage and the car was not adjustable. I found this shop through AAA and also through citysearch. They fixed it right and now it doesn't eat up my tires anymore. I now have a new mechanic that I can depend on. I highly recommend them.
- mdwilliams
I found this shop on citysearch. I'm always leary of auto repair's but he is now the only place I'll take my car. They were very pleasant, explained everything and didn't do anything I didn't ask for. I will refer him to all my friends and family and even put a link to this site on my webpage.

My dealership said that I needed a complete tune up but the cost of it was a rip off. Instead, of repairing at the dealership, I found this shop in the midtown area near the medical center near where I work. The manager there was very friendly, and gave me a very reasonable price. He even put in my information so that the next time I came in, he would know when I last had my tuneup down. I feel confident that there is one mechanic that I can trust now.

My car was towed in by AAA for a breakdown on the freeway. The tow truck driver took my car to the nearest AAA aproved auto repair facility which was located in downtown. This place fixed my car fast and was quite courteous.

I failed my state inspection at a sticker stop and needed to find out what to do. I surfed the states web site to find a state emmission certified locaton. To my surprise, there wasn't but a handful of them. This shop was listed as a certified location by the state and AAA approved auto repair facility. He fixed the problem, in one day re-inspected my car at his location.
- terry8899
I had a brake job done on my car and the manager even offered to give me a ride to work. The job was finished by noon and they called me and they picked me up at work. The bill was very reasonable compared to other places I was quoted. This location was very convenient for me since I work in the downtown area. I will definitely use this mechanic shop for all my future auto repair needs.

MY RIDE IS PIMPED OUT. HAD A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON AND NOW ITS GONE. GOT MY RIDE DONE THAT DAY. PEACE OUT. OH> ALSO, HIS SHOP DOES CONVERSION JOBS ON SUV AND POCKETROCKETS.
- PIMPED MY RIDE
I just moved to Houston and noticed my car was making a noise. I saw the great reviews on City Search and decided that was where I would go to get the repair. I wasn't disappointed! It turned out the noise was a minor fix and they didn't try to con me into unnecessary repairs. Oh! And, they even gave me a ride home so I didn't have to wait at the shop. I really appreciated the honesty and I will definitely be a repeat customer. I never knew him before today, but I truly had a good experience.
- Great Experience!
DID YOU KNOW IN HOUSTON ALONE THERE OVER 1500 MECHANIC SHOPS IN HOUSTON. OUT OF THOSE MECHANIC SHOPS, THERE ONLY ABOUT 110 THAT ARE RECOGNIZED EMMISSION REPAIR FACILITY. THIS PLACE IS AWESOME

Although I was cringing when Mikey explained my oil leak was a little worse than I thought, he explained everything that needed to be done in great details. He also explained items I could do, but weren't immediately necessary. The work was well done and on time. After the repair I drove to Florida - twice in 2 weeks. A great job!

- There is no better & fairer in Houston.
Mikey, is the most experienced ASE tech out there. My 2000 Sebring was running like junk. I was told by other shops that I would need an engine overhaul. Took my car to Midtown and turned out that it just needed a major tune up instead. It's been 1 yr. since the repair, and my car still runs great and the check engine light is gone,gone,gone. Mikey is my new Technician- not a mechanic (he is beyond that). I also send my friends to him too!!!
- Calandra
My family and I have visited Mikey's shop since 1994. I personally have seen the blessings Mikey's shop has under gone. When I first start coming to his shop, he only had 3 bays and it was quite old looking.. Now, he has built it up to a 7 bay up-to-date shop with all the newest and greatest equipments. He has always been truthful and upcoming to my family and I. Which, I found that honarable in a business man. I mention these things because soon I'll be leaving out of state for work. Though, I can find another mechanic shop in the state I'm going to, but believe me, probably not the same service I received with Mikey. I give Mikey an "A" for effort and satisfaction of work.

I had some work done on my car and spent about $300 plus dollars at Domestic Auto Experts. It acted up 48 hrs after the repairs were done for the exact same problems. I had it towed in and they said, " it's going to cost another $300 plus dollars to fix." I was so pissed, I had it towed away from there. I drive by Midtown Auto Service everyday on the way to work and never paid them a visit. Since, I was at work he was the closest so I took it there. This guy fixed most of the problem it was doing but then I took it back again then it was perfect. Pretty good damm repair shop. I feel little guilty I was on tough on him. By the way, I got most of my money back from the other guys after I rasied a rucus.

Dude! he's a cool cat. Waited a long time but it was worth the wait. My car is puuurring again.

Midtown Auto Service fixed my check engine light on and passed my state inspection test. I'm writing this review after 6 months and the check engine light is still off and the car is still running well.
- Jeff Towsland
The owner, Mikey is pleasent to deal with. He's been fixing my mom and dad cars for years and now my own. He's is fair and honest:; which I don't see in very many auto mechanic shops. I was in Austin for 4 years, and yes I had some situations that I needed a mechanic shop. Now that I have a family of my own I will only trust my car to Mikey. He won Best Auto Repair shop 2006 in the Houston Chronicle.

I bought a used car almost a year ago and to my surprise when I went to get a state inspection sticker I failed. I failed because the person who I bought my car from broke my speedometer cluster so my engine light wouldn't show. I took my car to at least four other shops to try to repair my speedometer gauge cluster and no one wanted the job. My friend at church suggested Mikey at Midtown Auto Service. He fixed the engine light on the speedometer cluster light and fixed some sensors that caused the engine light to come on in the first place.
- Chuck Lowe
This is a clean shop to visit and they do excellant work. I drive a 2001 Toyota Camry and was needing a 120,000 maint. They explained to me what I was going to get and was very patient with me. Mikey was pleasant to work with.

I moved to Houston not to long ago, and I needed some service on my car. I didn't know where to go so I went on-line and I found Judy's Book here. I read an article that Alice wrote and she praised this shop, so I decided to go there. It was like being at my old mechanic shop back where I'm from. I loved it. The owner was nice and polite. I really believe he gave me an honest price and treated me fairly. I think Midtown Auto Service is the new name of the shop, but Mikey is still the owner. Because that's the person who I dealt with.

I definetly found an honest, concerned, and knowlegable mechanic to work on my 06 VW Passat.
- Jeff Majeski
"Best car repair shop. Mr. Mike was very straight forward with repair problems and pricing. My AC went out on my vehicle and it is running like brand new. Quality, great customer service. Mr. Mike also suggested future repairs for my vehicle along with an estimate. Hats off to Midtown Auto! I would recommend Midtown to anyone with auto problems.

They did my oil change on my Toyota Avalon and my state inspection sticker in a timely manner. Was easy to find right here in the downtown - medical center area.

Car Care Tip of the day

What is a automotive / car " valve job " and when is it necessary? Houston,Tx

A valve job is removing the cylinder head(s) from the engine so the valves, guides and seats can be refurbished to restore compression and oil control. A valve job may be necessary by the time an engine has 80,000 or more miles on it, or to fix a "burned valve," compression or oil burning problem. Before we describe all the steps that a typical valve job involves, we should warn you that some shops dont necessary do all the steps. In other words, you get what you pay for. A "cheapie" valve job might skip a lot of things that saves you a few dollars in the short run, but may end up costing you a lot more in the long run. So look for a shop or service facility that does quality work. A valve job typically begins by disassembling, cleaning and inspecting the cylinder head. Cast iron heads are "Magnafluxed" to check for hairline cracks. This involves applying a strong magnetic field to the head and sprinkling iron powder on it. Cracks disrupt the magnetic field and attract the iron powder, making invisible cracks easy to see. Cracks are bad news because they can leak coolant into the combustion chamber damaging the cylinders and/or causing the engine to lose coolant and overheat. If cracks are found in any critical areas of the head, the head must either be repaired or replaced. Cracks in cast iron heads are most often repaired by "pinning" (installing a series of overlapping threaded pins). Cracks in aluminum heads are very common and can often be repaired by welding. If a head has been repaired (pinned or welded), most shops will usually pressure test the head afterward to make sure there are no leaks. Some may also apply a sealer compound to the inside of the water jackets as added insurance against future leaks. Once the head passes this point, it is also checked for flatness. The surface of the head must be flat to seal the head gasket against the block. Excessive warpage, roughness or any damage can cause the head gasket to fail. If the head exceeds the maximum allowable out-of-flatness specs, it must be resurfaced or replaced. Usually theres enough metal in the head to allow for a certain amount of resurfacing. But on many import aluminum cylinder heads, the amount of resurfacing thats possible is minimal. Overhead cam aluminum cylinder heads are often found to be warped (usually the result of overheating). If the condition cannot be corrected by resurfacing, the head can often be straightened by heating it in a special oven and then bending it until it is straight. Next come the valves, guides and seats. The guides are checked for wear. Theyre almost always worn, so they either need to be replaced, relined or knurled (a process whereby grooves are cut into the inside diameter of the guides to decrease the bore size). Few shops knurl guides anymore. Most install new guides, guide liners or bore out the old guides to accept new valves with oversized stems. Aluminum heads have cast iron or bronze guides that can be replaced but most cast iron heads do not. If the valves are to be reused, they will be inspected, checked for straightness then refaced. Many shops automatically replace all the exhaust valves to reduce the risk of failure (exhaust valves run much hotter than intakes and are much more likely to fail). The seats in the head are either cut or ground to restore the sealing surface. If a seat is cracked or too badly worn to be refaced, the seat must be replaced. If that isnt possible (as is the case on many late model cast iron heads because the casting is too thin), then the entire head must be replaced. All aluminum heads have hardened steel seats that can be replaced. The valve springs are all inspected and tested to make sure they are still capable of maintaining proper pressure. The spring retainers, keepers and other hardware is likewise inspected. Any worn or damaged components are replaced. New valve guide seals are always used. The valves are then installed in the head and shimmed to restore proper valve height. This is necessary because machining the valves and seat alters their dimensions. Valve height is important because it affects valvetrain geometry and guide wear. If it is an overhead cam engine, the cam is also installed and the valve lash adjusted prior to returning the head to the customer.
