I needed a new radiator for my 2001 Mitsubishi and I called like four other shops who where so expensive. API sold me a radiator for $120 dollars cheaper, thanks to these guys I saved some green. Highly recommend.

Went to API on a friends recommendation because I needed new tires and alignment. They gave me a good recommendation on some good tires and so far I am very satisfied with my purchase. To be honest I don't even think my car felt this good even when it was new. The guys here are great and hard workers and they did a great job on my 2002 ford escape.

I am a college student, I have a 1997 Buick that needed a Virginia state inspection. I took it to API after I was told it was going to cost over $900.00 to pass the inspection. API did the job for $208.00. The other shop said I needed some repairs that would pass. I am glad I went to API. It's a great shop.

My 1998 Ford Explorer needed a lot of front engine chassis work. Another shop had quoted me over $2000.00!!! So I decided to take it here to API they did the same work, same labor and parts for 1,000 now that was a saving!!! They also Shuttled me to work and back with no cost to me. They did a great job and I really appreciate your guys hard work, thank you. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants the job done well and at a great price.

These guys know brakes! I failed at trying to fix them on my own and API did a great job at fixing my mistake. The price was reasonable and the service was fast. I even was able to use the internet in the waiting room while they fixed my car.

I had AC word done at API. The Chrysler dealership wanted a lot more to fix it than API. They did a great job and I will go back for more services. The service people are very nice and explained things to me clearly.

I had electrical problems with my 2001 Jeep Cherokee. This was the third place I went to get it fixed. They found the problem under 30 minutes. I now have turn signals thanks to API. Good clean shop and nice people!

I took my 2002 Jetta in for an oil change, state inspection,and my check engine light was on. I thought it was going to cost me big bucks to fix. They did the hole job for under $90.00. I was shocked and I will be back.

This place is great. I took my car there the whole time I lived in Charlottesville. They're good, fast, and they don't try and jerk you around. I'm a woman and they didn't try and give me any of the fake repair crap some other mechanics do. Love love love them.
