Terrible customer service and did work on my car without any permission. Which is illegal. They refused to pull any of the work out. I'm filling a complaint.

Repeated Misdiagnosis

I had a stalling problem, which later was correctly found to be a bad fuel pump at another shop. Despite mentioning another mechanic's fuel pump diagnosis, they instead claimed it was the O2 sensor, and after that didn't work, another five parts. After months the problem wasn't fixed, and they refused to give any discount despite their repeated failure to find the problem. After bringing the car elsewhere, the problem was solved on the first attempt. Therefore, I am extremely disappointed with Ricks. Not to mention that the staff is very rude. AVOID

Why would you go anywhere else?

I can't imagine taking my car anywhere else. WHY???

1) Rick's provides the best service anywhere and is honest as they come.

2) He has great pricing.

3) Gets you're car in, then out - quickly!

4) And if you think Town Fare Tire is the best place to buy tires, again, check out Rick's Automotive. You will be amazed.

5) His staff is great, too!

The best!

I have been going to Rick's since I moved to Bristol 11 years ago, he is honest, reasonably priced, and stands by his work. He know his stuff, and has a excellent staff.

Great Automotive Service from Rick's Automotive

Very hard to find a Reliable Auto repair location today, Rick?s Automotive was recommended by Associates at my work place. My Associate?s at work have long standing reliable Auto Repair Experiences with Rick?s Automotive. My car has been plagued with a break issue for over 8 months, my local Service person would to fix the break issue but 3 to 4 months would pass and the Break issue would be plaguing me again. Seeking resolution to my Break issue, Rick?s Automotive review the repair issues and quickly determined issue and I look forward all my future automotive issues to be handled by Rick?s Automotive

Honest service, good price

I went to Rick's after having a few members of my church recommend it and I would add my own kudos. My friend's two cars were quoted beyond what they could afford at another garage, but Rick fixed them both with a very low price attached. She is a woman and so am I, so finding a mechanic who won't rip us off when they see us coming is a very good thing!

Are you still going to Firestone?!

Rick's is run by good, honest people. The first time I went there I was on the rebound from Firestone who had quoted me 200 bucks for labor on a water pump while Rick's was gonna charge me less than that for the whole shebang! My bill went from almost 400 to less than 200. Wow, they are awesome. I know women are sometimes more comfortable going into a chain repair shop but they really do rip us off. I always feel comfortable talking to the guys over there. God bless them for running their busines with integrity when it would be so easy to lead people astray and cheat them.
