I'm so happy I took my car her...

I'm so happy I took my car here, she is also happy and I swear she felt much perkier on the way home. We're totally going back when it's time for the next oil change!

You guys had me in an out very quickly when other competitors were promising 1.5 hour waits.

Your team of mehanics and staff are so great. I will keep using you for my auto needs.

It is always so pleasant to go to River Oaks. They treat everyone like they're a VIP. I was met at the door; they drove my car to the back, did the oil change and brought it back out front with the air condition on so I wouldn't get in to a hot car. All done in less than 30 minutes. Thank you so much!

Oil change and an emissions sticker, was in and out quickly, friendly service. Sticker was in the window and the oil stayed in the truck. The visit was a success.

I will come back to your business. I felt you did me right and gave me a detailed description of the services my car needs in the near future. Thank you.

I was especially glad to have had my brake work done in your shop when some jerk made an improper lane change and my car stopped less than a yard from his bumper. The brakes work fine! Thanks gentlemen!

The guys are great. I followed them from a different shop in Houston. They are very honest, accommodating and helpful.

The service at ROAC is wonderful and they are truly honest with their customers. Highly recommended! I highly recommend River Oaks Automotive Center.

I hope I gave you the highest rating. It like maybe I should have given you five stars but I don't know what happened. I meant to give you as many stars as possible. Thank you so much!

Vince always treats me great and goes above and beyond to get me a great deal. Thank you for all of your help! Look forward to many more years of doing business together!

As a long term customer I continue to be pleased with your approach to services, but am often times surprised that an additional visit must be made after a service call. For example after my last service call on my Honda, I had to return within 2 minutes as the fluid cable for the brakes had broken. I think that this may have occurred during the service work but your team still charged me a significant fee to repair the item. My wife's Mercury Sable will soon be returned because the steering noise she had addressed on the last maintenance visit is still occurring suggesting that other things are wrong but were not fixed by the team, nor were we notified that there were additional items that needed attention, It would make us more comfortable if we could deal with the repair issues in total, one at a time when the car is left for service.

Service was fast, fair and effective. Haven't had a problem since! Yall have a great team there, and Vince took great care of us!

The appointment process was quick. They got it done on time, well, kind of. It was supposed to get a LOF and tire rotation. But when I got there the guy tried to tell me, "we measured all the tires and the wear is perfect. No need to rotate". Well, I am not a mechanic, but I am an Engineer and I really don't think there is a simple way to take 3 or 4 measurements and say, the wear is perfect. It's just better to rotate them on a regular basis. But now I have to go back. I did talk to the tire company I bought them. They did say, you must prove you "rotated them on a regular basis" to get the warranty.

Richard D.



I am very satisfied with my service. The guys found a problem with my Jeep that was under warranty and helped me with the issue. Vince even went online to help me understand the issue and what dealership to send my Jeep to. I will be back for sure.

I needed quite a bit of work done on my Pathfinder and for the first time, went somewhere other than the dealer. I feel like I am driving a new vehicle now! I can't believe what a difference it has made having my car in tip-top condition for an older vehicle. Thanks to ROA, my car is a pleasure to drive, once again!


River Oaks Automotive was professional, honest, and knowledgeable. They made a stressful situation much easier to handle. I will return myself and recommend to others. Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this business to a friend.
