Block Automotive has been servicing our acura and honda for many years. He has replaced brakes, timing belts, fluids etc. The best part about Mark is he will not do a repair if it's not needed. On multiple occasions I had him review my brakes because they had been squeaking for a period of time. Each time he explained that I did not need brakes. I thought I needed new shocks and left my car overnight. He told me the tires needed to be replaced.

I began taking our cars to Mark based upon a neighbor's recommendation. I had gone to a different mechanic for brakes. He insisted that I needed pads and rotors. I didn't need rotors and I never went back to that mechanic.

Mark's team is very good. The service is excellent. He has inspected our cars on multiple occasions and never charged us for the time the employees or him looked at it to make minor adjustments. I highly recommend Block Auto.

This past summer when the AC went out on my 2006 Saturn, I found that Block Automotive quoted the best price for repairs so took my car to them for the first time. They did a good job for a good price and I was happy with their work. A few months later, on a trip to Nashville, same car had what appeared to be significant engine trouble 150 miles from home. I made it to Nashville, but had no idea who to take the car to before attempting the trip back to Memphis. I could only think to call Mark at Block Automotive and ask his advice. After having only been a one time customer, Mark did not hesitate to go out of his way to figure out what the problem might be, find a mechanic in Nashville, call them to discuss the problem and call me back with their information. The mechanic in Nashville fixed the problem with the car, so Block Automotive got nothing for their time. But they earned my gratitude and loyalty. That's just good honest customer service!

Mark, Rich, and all the guys in the shop do an amazing job with most any vehicle you bring in. They give you fair quotes and they stick to them. They always call before they do work. I recently brought a 2001 BMW and was quoted by a "specialist" for over $2000 for some work that need to be done. Mark and the guys were able to perform the work for less then half of that. There was a factory recall that Mark advised me to let the "specialist" do the work. The "specialist" said that the minimum work had been done to the car and totally disregarded the work Block had done. They now wanted over $3000 for random things that had popped up! I called Mark to double check what they had said because Mark has always be honest with me. They stand behind their work- he asked me to bring the car back to him to follow up on what the "specialist" says might be wrong; Block Automative was correct in the work that they had already done. Over the years I have recommend family, friends, and coworks to have work done by Block Automative!

I have had my 1998 Honda Civic serviced by Mark Block for the past 10 years, since 2003. His shop does great work at a fair price and he stands behind it.



One of my friends now has him servicing all the cars (three or four) in her family, and he keeps them running.



I have had two Memphis Honda dealerships lie to me about unnecessary work and will never take my Honda to a Honda dealership in Memphis again. The first time I allowed Mark to work on my car, he charged $600, whereas the dealer where I had purchased it and had serviced it up until then, wanted to charge over $1000.



As much as I'd like to leave Memphis, it means I would have to find a new mechanic, and a mechanic and business owner like Mark is worth his weight in gold.

I went here after much searching online through reviews, etc. I was looking for an HONEST mechanic that offered a fair price and I found both at Block auto.



My Service Engine light had come on and so I took my car in. Mark advised of what was causing the problem, and in his opinion I should just leave it alone instead of spending $1200 to fix. It was something minor and non essential. Will def be bringing my car back out next time i need something.

GREAT HONEST FRIENDLY SERVICE

We have had 2 different cars serviced there over the years and always have been more than satisfied with the service and customer care, most recently, my son's first vehicle, a 98 Dodge pick up. Due to the trucks age (and probably my sons driving), various different things had started to wear out including his transmission. Mark Block and his team rebuilt the transmission for a very reasonable price and amount of time. Mark has always been VERY thorough in his descriptions both before and after the work has been done even going so far as to explain to my son on how to further car for his truck to help PREVENT it from having any more problems! I do NOT think the prices are high at all, and have been more than willing to pay the estimates because I know the work is being done correctly due to our past experience with Block Automotive. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Block Automotive to anyone who is looking for honest, friendly, and GREAT work for a vehicle!

Low Quality and Waste time

Not recommend Block Automotive. I tolled them "steering wheel is automatically turned to the right and the car goes one side when I was driving. I'd like to do alignment". I left my car at shop at 8:30 am, but never receive the call for pick up (even the car has bee down) until I called few times at 5:30 pm. Then the car still goes to right side. Nothing changed-Same as before. But they said that is normal. If it is normal why do you need to do alignment? If it is not normal how did you do your job? I think they did not have testing drive before and after alignment. Ying

Mr Ying brought his Acura to us and stated that the car pulled to the right. I told Mr. Ying that in a case where the car is perfectly alligned it would drift with the angle of the road. Meaning, that if the road leaned to the right the car would drift to the right. The car drove relatively normal and showed no unusual tire wear. I DID NOT recommend an allignment and told him that I thought it was a waste of money. Mr Ying said he wanted the allignment anyway. We did it and the right rear was out a few degrees but it did not change the way the car drove. Mr. Ying came back the next day wanting his money back saying that it still pulls right. I drove the car with him and showed him that the car was completely neutral in steering which means on a level road it was strait, on the left side of the road where it leans left the car drifted left, and on the right side of the road where the road leans right the car would drift that way as it should. He insisted he wanted his money back and I said no. We did a service that was fair priced in the market, less than 90 dollars for a 4 wheel allinement tax and all. He paid for checking and setting the allignment and thats what he got. I always went out of my way to help him try to understand what was going on with his cars because his language issues made it hard to communicate with him. I tried to talk him out of spending the money but after suggesting anything twice, I will do what the customer wants to for the price estimated no mater the result. I hate that he was unhappy with the result but I did my job the best it could be done, Honestly, and at a fair price.

good work but expensive

They did a good job but it was expensive

claimed iconBusiness Response12/16/2010

We give estimates at the beginning of ANY job. We are very competitive in the market. We do not bait price jobs or lie to get a job in the shop. I do use the best parts I can get for the price so that I can give the one year unlimited mileage warranty on most all repairs. If someone is cheaper make sure that they are doing the same job with the same parts. While we may not be the absolute cheapest on all repairs we are NOT expensive in the market. SHOP US... :)
