Woodie's gets a full five stars, without hesitation. And here's why: I drive a 1994 Subaru Legacy Wagon ("the family heirloom") with over 200,000 miles on it. On Aug 31, 2010, my car battery died again, and I got it jumped a third time in two weeks, even after driving it for an hour to charge it up. Anyway, I called AAA to replace the battery. By the way - not all AAA service guys are alike. This guy replaced my full warranty battery with a new one, then did a cheesy handheld check on it once it was installed and claimed he couldn't give me the battery because my alternator was not sending out a strong enough voltage, even though I told him the alternator had been replaced a year ago, and I'd just driven 1000 miles from Arkansas to NC for a new job. Does this deter him? No. He takes out the new battery and puts my old one it, and of course recommends I go to a AAA service shop. He was friendly and professional, but as it turns out, a bit of a weasel. Not feeling too great with the prospect of having to replace the alternator and the battery (he didn't dispute the battery was bad), I searched the reviews and Woodies Auto Service was the only one with consistently good reviews. I called them up that night (it was after hours), and got a really nice receptionist that advised me to call in first thing in the morning. I was especially stressed, because I had an important meeting the next day, I was new to town, and not to be a sexist, but as a woman in a new town with an old vehicle, the outlook didn't seem too rosy. Anyway, I called Woodie's Auto Service the next day (Sept 1, 2010) and talked with Nolan, the manager. He was great to deal with. He was honest, and told me that in this area of the country there are some AAA service guys that love to tell AAA customers that they won't replace the battery because of a question about the alternator functioning properly. He gave me an estimate over the phone for a new alternator ($315 or so) but told me to bring it in, since he doubted that it was truly the alternator. I went to Woodie's Auto Service and the tested the alternator - no problems. It cost me all of $26.00 or so. They even checked my oil and gave me an extra quart or so, no charge. Very friendly, knowledgeable and honest. Given the reputation that a lot of mechanics have, it was a wonderful experience to be treated with respect and to have my car serviced by well-qualified and honest mechanics. And the battery? I called AAA and got a different service guy - he replaced the battery at Woodies - no problems. I highly recommend this shop for automotive services.
