Best

I have been taking all of my cars (currently 5) to Bobby for the last 15 years. I refer ALL of my friends and acquaintances to Tech Auto because I trust them. Bobby is the best...

Worst

I've used these guys a few times over the past few years, but it seems they are getting more expensive and less customer-orientated. Pros: null Cons: null

Tech Auto - not what they used to be? 4/2/2012

The BEST!!! 4/14/2010

Been using them for years. Never had a problem. Pros: Service and Quality Cons: None more

Never take a German Car to him 2/4/2010

His business model is based on taking as many cars a day as possible and turning them around within a day or two max. To maintain this high turnover, he does a very quick and dirty diagnosis on your car, fixes it and doesnt really care if the car drives the way it should.In other words, he wont do a comprehensive check up, just latch on to the first problem he detects, fixes it and doesnt care if the car drives optimally or not. Cons: inexperienced, non-customer oriented, low quality work more

Works on BMWs! Don't take your car to the dealership.... 12/28/2009

Sometimes it can be scary (being a young, single woman) to go get your car fixed. But Tech Auto is in a good neighborhood (very good: Allen Pkwy/RiverOaks) and the people aren't scary or sketchy. Bobby, the owner, is as southern and honest about things as they come. He'll tell you if the repairs will cost more than the car is worth. (He's told my friend before). I have a 5 year old BMW, and I always take my car here. 3 options: Take your car to the dealership, take your car to some sketchy shop off Airline Drive, or take it here. Take it here. They have all the stuff to fix BMWs and whatever else kind of car. Not as expensive as (overhead) at a dealership and not in a shady part of town and trustworthy...so, I'd highly reccomend taking your car here-- whether it's German or domestic. I've seen high-end sports cars here and also minivans, so they do it all it looks like. (And if you need a ride to work and work nearby like downtown-- he drops you off so you don't have to get a coworker to bring you to work AND drop you off...so that's nice/convenient). Pros: Honest, Good service, Treats women fair (important!) Cons: None really more

I love Tech Auto...and I do not work there. 9/25/2009

I have been taking both of our autos to Tech Auto for several years. The only negative experience that I have had is that once...and only once...the car was not ready when promised; 5:00 PM, not 3:00 PM. \r \r One of our cars, a '95 Honda Odyessy, has an 'ABS' light that constantly comes on. Bobby Harting advised that they could fix it so the light would go off and charge several hundred dollars, but that the repair was unnecessary. Not every shop would do that.\r \r Bobby Harting guarantees the work for one year. They are friendly. \r \r I recommended Tech Auto to a customer of mine... who is extremely critical and will bite your head off if you make a mistake. She RAVES about Tech Auto.\r \r And, no, Mike C., I do not work there. more

A Completely Different Experience and Point Of View 6/3/2009

While every individuals experiences vary, I simply cannot say enough good things about Tech Auto Maintenance. Recently, they did work on my car, my daughter's car, and my father-in-law's car, all within a month's time. Additionally, they've worked on my son's car in the past. What struck me was the difference in the amount of automobiles on the parking lot when I dropped my car off in the morning compared to when I picked it up that same evening. What had been a sea of cars and trucks had dwindled to only a handful. I had been told that my car would be ready that same day and, true to his word, Bobby (the owner) delivered on his promise. I could only think of how many people got their cars back that day so they could go on with their daily routines. Personally, I find that impressive, especially when one considers how many cars go through the place on a daily basis.As far as unexpected charges, I have a different outlook than others who have written reviews here. In my experience, it's more

They're not a good place to go. 3/2/2009

I just got out of there and they did the same to me (below). Quoted me an outrageous amount, told them over the phone I would get a second opinion. They parked my car in a non parking zone on a one way street, had to go all the way to Allen Parkway just get off the road. Will never go there again. It's funny, I'm pretty sure all the great and wonderful reviews below came from their staff to cover up a previous bad review. more

WARNING: Worst Experience Yet 3/2/2009

We all know mechanics can be sheisters, but this one takes the cake. They've got a rep behind the counter named "Pebbles" if that tells you anything. Don't be surprised if you find pebbles in your tires and water in your tank if you decide to go else where. They quoted me on a list of work, $2200, so I went to my normal and reliable mechanic who is much further away, quoted me $800 and my car purs like a kitten now. Tech Auto also charged me $127 for diagnostic work (WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE) and later found out from another customer that they were charged $85 for the same diagnostic care from the same mechanic looking at my car. We got the mechanic to except $85 after questioning. So if you feel like getting screwed in the midst of an economic melt down- go to these people, they'll remind you just how horrible times really are. Pros: None Cons: Lots more

Finally - a mechanic I can trust 11/6/2008

Bobby and his employees are persons that you can really trust. Everytime I have taken a vehicle to them, it has been fixed beyond my expectations. Bobby is not your typical "mechanic". He only will replace parts with quality replacement parts. Some mechanics will replace parts with "cheap" parts only to make the price seem lower, this is not the case with Bobby and his crew. He only will use quality parts, yes they may be a little more expensive, but it is worth EVERY extra penny. Pros: Close to office Cons: None more

An honest mechanic 7/7/2008

Tech Auto has worked on both of our cars over the past few years (we have cars that are 10+ yrs old.) They never over charge or try to screw us over in any way. They finish in a resonable amount of time, and keep the cars fairly clean. I have never had a bad experience. more

Unnecessary work done 4/5/2008

When I took my car to Bobby at Tech Auto after a friend and reviews on City Search recommended him, I was very disappointed. He did what I consider unnecessary work without calling to ask and insisted I pay for it. At least a dealer calls before doing something that costs more money than was quoted. more

if it's broke he will fix it .. 2/29/2008

Bobby?s (Tech Auto) is about the best place you can end with a car problem. He is super friendly, a straight shooter and puts personal guaranty in the work he does. He will give you excellent and speedy service, and at the end of the day he isn't going to pillage your wallet when paying time comes up. I have always had top notch service at this guy so if you live in this part of town or if you like I live outside Houston what to go the extra distance to get the job done then bobby is the man you need to go see. My only regret is that he only handles Cars, life sure would be better if he could do all of life?s quirks. Pros: All around good guy. more

Tech Auto has honest and expert service. 8/16/2007

Bobby and his mechanics at Tech Auto have replaced ball joints on my PT Cruiser and did it cheaper than the dealer and quickly. They rebuilt the motor and tranmission on my husbnd's 1981 Chevy truck and we've driven that truck to Puerto Vallarta and back twice with no problems. I trust them when they tell me what my car needs. They finish the repairs quickly and on time. Pros: quick, honest, reliable, reasonable cost. Cons: none i've encountered. more

Finally someone I can trust 11/20/2006

Tech Auto just may be my luckiest Houston find. Quick and reliable service. Bobby is super! You can trust that he won't charge you for or perform unnecessary services....only what needs to be fixed. Being a female, I've always felt that auto shops take advantage of my gender and lack of knowledge. But not here. I totally trust Tech Auto and have recommended many friends who feel the same way! Bobby is super about ensuring he gives you the best service possible and follows up just in case. Pros: Great service, Trustworthy, Great value Cons: NONE! more

Fixed my Audi, and gave me a ride to work! 8/4/2006

My Audi's warranty was up so I thought I'd try this place by my house. (And because it's on the way to work/near dowtown). The place is new and pretty clean, and the prices weren't as high as they would've been if I went to the dealership anyway. The guy I dealt with (think he was the owner) wasn't all scary or too "this is what's wrong with your car, little lady." Basically, I didn't feel like he was going to rip me a new one! And they gave me a ride to work! Pros: Professional, Credible, Near Downtown/Allen Pkwy Cons: No "Loan Cars" more
