First and foremost, Craig Johnson is a great mechanic to work with. He is extremely communicative, texting and calling back promptly when he says he will. On top of that, he explains the issues with your car concisely and in a language anybody can understand. I brought my PT Cruiser in here after it broke down and refused to stay on, and two days afterwards Craig was able to explain plenty of issues my car was spouting out. Instead of saying that everything needs to be replaced though, he explained that one part of my car was shorting out and that it would cause cascading errors to appear on the system. Due to money issues, I wasn't able to get it repaired at this time, but Craig gave me a detailed list of what he inspected, what he thought needed to be repaired first, and the prices that went along with the repairs he recommended. I was worried that the mechanic would be upset that I couldn't get the car fixed, and that I needed to bring it back to my house. He was understanding, polite, and downright friendly over the entire transaction. You never hear people say this, but I look forward to bringing my car to this garage again! - Casey P.

When I was having a long-time engine problem, a mechanic friend of mine recommended Craig Johnson Automotive. I'm so glad he did, and here's why. My lucky break came -- my friend's recommendation to go to Craig Johnson Automotive. Guess what? Craig fixed the problem in a day! And lo and behold: No cracked distributor, just a faulty circuit board somewhere and voila, problem totally solved! No $500, PLUS LABOR at who knows how much extra on top of that. Total price: $425.00. Now you might say that my savings weren't that great. A couple of hundred, maybe, right? But just think: Had I trusted the dealership, I would've forked out all that money to install a new distributor and still I wouldn't have fixed the problem. I would've right back to square one with a new distributor but still a crappy running car. Not to mention the fact that I'd already paid them the $250, which I might have avoided paying had I known about Craig Johnson Automotive beforehand. But once Craig was done, my car was running like new again! So I finally got my car back after who knows how many years of aggravation and frustration, and for me that's absolutely priceless. Thanks, Craig! - Kent S. (5 star review on Yelp)

I have recently had trouble with my vehicle. The dealer wants to charge way to much. The first mobile mechanic flaked out, the second made the repair but incorrectly. A friend took me to Craig Johnson Automotive ( clouds parting, beams of sunlight and do I hear an angel chorus?) he took his time,correctly identified the issues corrected the previous mechanic’s repairs and helped me with the dealer to have repairs covered by an extended warranty. Craig is knowledgeable, He has a large wall in his office covered with credentials and certifications. He is patient, professional and explains in detail what’s going on with your car, why it’s happening and how to fix it. He even helped me to get to get the car smogged. I highly recommend Craig Johnson he is trustworthy. - Kathy B. (5 star review on Facebook)
As someone in an industry that is often maligned, not trusted and the butt of many jokes Craig Johnson and his shop stand out. I can't say enough about their integrity that allows us to trust them and be able to make informed decisions when in an automotive crises. This makes coming to them for all the minor problems and regular maintenance an easy decision. Craig goes above and beyond the everyday to see to it that the work is done right and that you are totally satisfied with their work and performance. - Patrick P. (5 star review on Yelp)
Craig runs one of the best automotive shops in the business. They are thorough, professional and most importantly honest. I have been going to him for repair needs for about five years. I highly recommend this business. - Thanh S. (5 star review on Yelp)
My father has been a patron of Craig Johnson Automotive for years, as the go to auto shop. Recently, my 2010 Camaro had engine failure. Chevrolet want my first born child as collateral to replace the engine. Craig quote me a better price towed the car away from the dealership the next day. Craig Johnson Automotive ordered 2016 version of the engine, dropped it in, and returned my car in LESS THEN TWO WEEKS! This company is deserving of every dollar spent. I brought the car back for a checkup. Craig discovered my right front brake was on backwards. He fixed it. Worth every dollar spent. - Elliot C.
My husband and I are new to the area. A few months ago he needed some work done on his car and he found Craig Johnson Automotive. He was impressed with their work. A few weeks ago, my car was having some trouble. My car needed to be towed to the shop and they took my car in on short notice. They offered to take me home after dropping my car off, but I had planned to walk home since I live close by. They called me to make sure I had gotten home safely. I was kept informed every step of the way with phone calls. Craig sent me a PDF file with the needed repairs in order of priority with each repair separately listed with price. At no time was I pressured to have any of the work done. When I picked up my car after repairs were completed, Craig again went over everything with me. I truly felt like I was an appreciated customer. - Jaclyn V.
