What People Say About Us
So hard to find an honest, trustworthy garage, but Anderson Garage is the best! I've moved across town and tried some closer places, but I am now coming back to Anderson Garage because the other places just don't compare. Highly recommend!
Fast and friendly service. Were able to figure out the problem with my truck misfiring and fix it within a day. Will definitely use them again.
Sean and his team have been my preferred mechanic for almost 20 years. They are honest and dependable and do it right the first time. I highly recommend Anderson Garage!
Honest estimates. Quick service.
I recently found this place, as they are one of the very few shops left that will work on modified Hummer H2s. They did a very excellent job on the work. When I came in to pay, the cost was less than what was quoted. I got a detailed reason as to why, and I ended up leaving happy. Would recommend this shop to anyone!
This is my mechanic of choice in San Antonio. Multiple times when Toyota and GMC dealers tried to overcharge me, this place got my truck and SUV fixed right for less.
Since moving to SA in 2009, we thought we would never find a reliable auto shop, like we had in LA. But thank God we found them, and they have been a blessing to our cars and to our pocket. Thanks Anderson Garage and Sean.
I've been using Anderson for over 8 years and with various vehicles (Honda Civic, F-150, Chevy Uplander). They have always done an excellent job and warrantied their work. They are honest and thorough to a fault and have always been straightforward regarding whether or not work should be done. I would recommend Anderson's to anyone that wants a straight deal on any minor or major auto repair. Great job guys!!!
