Our goal is to offer the best services available at affordable prices to get you back on the road in no time.

But, don't take our word for it, here's what some of our customers have said about the service they received on their car, truck, or classic automobile.

My visit to A1 Auto Center was a very positive experience. This morning I called AAA to share the many ways your center impressed me. Within a short time, you assessed the trouble that you were able to see. Once the new part was delivered, you tested your theory. Another part was ordered and then tested. The trouble was confirmed. Along the way, the women at the front desk informed me of the mechanic's progress and explained the process in clear and sequential steps. They also were courteous and patient with every phone call and stop-by client. It was a long day but the problem was solved. It needed some strategic thinking to figure it out. The mechanic that worked on my car even came out to show me the part and explain what happened. If A1 was closer to my home, I would return. They are efficient and effective.

I have been going to A1 for about 3 years. I have brought all of my cars and trucks there ever since my bad experiences at All Pro Automotive in Old Lyme. Chris and his staff are informative and offer suggestions so you don't have to pay for things you don't need. And if for some reason something doesn't keep working after they have worked on it, they take the time to correct it. It's hard to find mechanics you can trust who also have the know-how and you can't go wrong with A-1 Auto!
– Jeff K.

I would like to thank A-1 Auto center for their generous donation to the animal shelter, they even came with a big novelty check! I LOVE IT! Thank you very much. Please stop by their shop for all your automotive needs!

To the Crew at A1, My son just brought my Toyota Echo back to me with 2 brand new snow tires and a new belt. Now we are all ready for winter, and it is nice to know there are still people who can always be relied on to do such nice work.

Chris, You meet very few people in your lifetime that you can consider special. You and your "gang" of wonderful people made my day. Many Thanks.
– Bill W.

For over five years, my family has been bringing our five cars and a truck to A-1 Auto Center in Niantic. A-1 is a family-owned and operated business with knowledgeable long term employees. Service is prompt and courteous. Great attention is paid to each vehicle's repair and ongoing maintenance - especially important in our older rolling stock - and all our vehicles run very well thanks to A-1.
– Dan W.

A1 takes the time to explain my repairs and how I can best avoid them next time. He doesn't treat me differently as a teenager than any other customers. They take time and explain the repair and will offer inexpensive options if they can and they do work quickly.
– AA

Perhaps the best 2 things I can say about A1 auto is that I have never had to bring a repair back in for the same thing. Each repair was done right and thoroughly the first time. Secondly, A1 is the only repair shop that EVER came in under estimate, by $150 due to not needing a part. Anywhere else they would have charged me, but not A1, totally trustworthy.
– MM

We have our three cars serviced at A1 Auto, and have always been given the best service in maintaining everything from engines to brakes, timing belts and mufflers. We have trust and confidence the work will be done with quality and integrity. The evaluations are honest and informative and costs are always reasonable. We HIGHLY recommend A1 Auto for all your car's maintenance needs!
