What Our Customers Are Saying

    review rating 5  Went in after a recommendation from customers at Jake's deli. John was able to offer alternatives to what we felt was a costly and complicated solution to our friends heater core issue. I highly recommend places such as Otego Tire and Auto since the staff could have easily not gone the extra mile to present other option. To me that is a strong sign of integrity. :) #ChrisCortez603 #RAoK603

    review rating 5  No Bulls***, Kayla, John, and Gene are the people to see when your vehicle needs repair. Very kind advisor, spot on mechanics who sit with you to narrow down your vehicles problems. They have gone above and beyond to care for their customers, including myself. They gain a personal relationship and care about both you, and your vehicle. They don't sugarcoat or try to sell you anything you don't need. They are very direct and give you the information you need. After moving to this area and experiencing 3 other places that gave me inaccurate information, I am happy to say I have found a hometown mechanic I can trust and rely on. From emergency tire repair to transmission replacement and electrical work, i'd never seek another mechanic.
