What Our Customers Have to Say
Great place to trust with your vehicle. They charge fair prices and do quality work in a short amount of time. Highly recommended.
I was having issues with my car not wanting to start properly. Keith made sure to do a full diagnostic and found the problem to be the crank sensor. We were fully informed on everything that had to be done. And we got my car back within a few days. If you need to get your car looked at go to Keith!
Auto mechanics sometimes tend to get blasted for being dishonest…. well, my testimony today is that Thunderbird Automotive, down off Reems and Mountain View in Surprise, is the absolute best, most honest team of service technicians EVER. Our old Ford seemed to be “missing” and we thought it might need all new ignition coils. KA-CHING!! Well, it took a couple of times, but the service techs at Thunderbird finally discovered a tiny leak in the coolant hose that was hitting one or two of the … Read More
I am so grateful we found Thunderbird Automotive after moving to Surprise. We have three vehicles we take to this shop and have had an excellent experience with every service for the last 4 years. My most recent experience was when I took my 16 year old daughter’s car in for maintenance. Both Keith and Brandon addressed my daughter directly, explaining in detail what her car needed and why. They took the time to teach her the importance of maintenance and made sure she understood the differ… Read More
Hands down the best automotive service shop I’ve ever been to. Professional, extremely knowledgeable, amazing quality of service and fair pricing all around!
I have had nothing but positive experiences with Thunderbird Automotive. Their staff is knowledgeable, efficient and courteous. I would recommend them highly.
While in for routine maintenance they found problems with the struts and suspension and were able to fix that while they had it in the bay. It was reasonably priced and saved us another visit. We have used Thunderbird Auto for years when ever our car is not under warrantee from the dealer and we really appreciate their honest and capable work.
I understand that my wheel size is too large for some places to change the tire but they were very nice about getting me on my way.
This is not my first time using them, and they have always been great. I have never had a complaint. I will to my friends.
Thunderbird Auto has taken care of our 2016 GMC Canyon and 2013 Jeep primarily for maintenance, during the past year. They quickly diagnose the problem and give you exact pricing before they begin the work! No surprises! They are very friendly, thorough and point out areas of future maintenance, and when to get the work scheduled. Thunderbird also offers to drive you home, if the repair is going to take longer than expected. Their pricing is competitive and they will even go so far as to giv… Read More
