Now that we have moved to this area permanently, we were looking for someone to look after our cars. We came from Chicago where we had, over 39+... years, two of the best shops in the City. Both gave us "small-town" service... family service. The first retired and handed us over to the second. Honest mechanics is not an oxymoron.Whoever we found down here would have big shoes to fill.Martin's fills them well. Very thorough, efficient and not looking to pad the bill with unneeded services.Glad to have found them.read more

I was blown away by the amount of respect that was given and the quality work. My van is running and feeling like it is brand new! I won’t pretend... that I know anything about vehicles, but I was completely confident and trust the work they did. Very thorough and did I mention respectful. It has been my experience to get blown off because I am a woman and don’t know anything. I was treated so kindly and spoken to with respect. Ladies, if you need your vehicle worked on and want it done right and with respect...this is the place to go!!!read more

This is the most professional, kind, and knowledgeable automotive shop I’ve ever been to. I would bring my vehicle here for everything if I lived... closer. We broke down in our camper van and they loaned us a Prius to drive and pick up a part in St. Luis so we could get a same day repair and get back to our vacation. Martin’s goes above and beyond in customer service. They show pictures and explain the mechanical aspects of your vehicle in very understandable terms so that you understand what needs to be repaired. They take pride in their work and do right by the people and the vehicles that come to their shop. Their pricing is fair, and their work is the best quality. I wish we lived closer.read more
