Work on my car got done quickly and for a fair price. Plus, Oscar was just plain fun to talk to. I recommend Ben White Automotive. Jones.


Apparently my battery ruined my alternator. So, they put in a new battery and alternator. They tried to charge me for premium brand new parts on a 12 year old car. I did some rese...

I found Ben White last year through a list of reviews and will never use another shop for get my car fixed. They are super honest and extremely thorough. I have recommended a ton of friends to them as well and have always been thanked. For an honest shop, Ben White is the place! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/30/2013

BWA was suggested to me by my boyfriend after I was disappointed and frustrated with other places. My car is running smooth again and am thankful that I now have a trustworthy auto shop. They are pretty busy, but still get their work done in a timely fashion. The only downside I can think of is that their building is set back off the road and somewhat hidden, so it easily sneaks up on you. They are really friendly and helpful. Great service and great work! more

Excellent and knowledgeable service at reasonable prices. 4/23/2013

Received very good service at Ben White. They are competent and friendly people, at prices lower than the dealer. If you want outstanding service at a reasonable price, they are a very good dealer alternative to go to. more

Thank you Ben White Auto for giving my old car a major tune-up. I can finally keep up with the traffic here in Austin. It has more power! They even found loose bolts on the rack and pinion I had replaced last year, and tightened them up for me and my safety. Being new to Austin, I did not know where to turn. But I'm positive I will be back to Ben White Auto. You can expect great referrals from me. more

Reliable auto repair. 12/22/2012

My wife and I have been going to Ben White for years. We've found that Oscar and his team always shoot straight and do good work, but recently they outdid themselves. I took the bus to go pick up my truck and I had just crossed South Congress, when I thought, ""That looks like my truck that just pulled in a driveway and now is just sitting there."" Sure enough it was Graeme, a Ben White technician, who had spotted me while taking my truck for its test drive, and pulled over to give me a ride. It was only a couple of blocks, but I don't think there are many other automotive shops where that would happen. more

I was mad After being ripped off by others and broke. i was only trying to get my power steering hose replaced,because of a leak. So I decided finally, its time to take my car to a honest business. So I went to ben White automotive . I am so relieved that I went there. BWA is honest, affordable, fast , and they give you excellent car service . They have great workers. My car drove smooth after they fixed it. Now, i know, that Ben white Automotive is the only shop I will go to for car service. I do recommend BWA to anyone 100 %. more

I would like to extend a warm thank you to Oscar and Gary. They were very easy to work with, and they let my vehicle sit in their lot until I was able to pay them the money owed to fix my fuel pump. My vehicle drives great, and they even put the preexisting gasoline back in my tank. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/28/2012

Ben White Automotive is the place I have taken my car. They replace a timing belt kit and did a brake job on my car. Every time I go to Ben White Automotive I have received quick, accurate estimates, and professional job. Oscar, the shop manager is extremely helpful. I urge if you have need for a mechanic try Ben White Automotive. more

These guys are honest and professional. Thanks for taking good care of me and my car! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/18/2012

I trust noone else with my car. Honest business that's had the same staff for years (that says something). From nursing my Subaru in its last miles, to my current car's maintenance - I trust them completely. I've never left spending more than quoted - and often a little less. They do what's right by their clients. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/15/2012

I have discovered that my new (used) hybrid can only be worked on by either the dealer or certain mechanics trained to properly maintain a hybrid. Needless to say, I am grateful to discover that Ben White Automotive does work with a car like mine...they did a thorough and professional job. Once again, I feel safe driving my car. Thanks guys! more

We have been taking out Volvo to Ben White for over a year. They are so honest and more than once our total bill was less than the estimate. The work they do is very good and we are always happy with their service. Thanks Ben White! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/31/2012

Excellent service for a first time customer. I used BWA for brake repairs based on excellent online reviews, they certainly lived up to the high ratings. Oscar was friendly & explained my repair options in detail. Work was done the same day in a timely manner (only a few hours) for a fair price. Will definitely be back for future repairs! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/11/2012

I've been coming to Ben White for a while. By far the best mechanic shop I've ever dealt with. I could talk about their friendly and respectful attitude, their prompt service, and such. But simply put, I trust them. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/21/2012

Great timely service. They started work on my car soon after I arrived, got the work done, and I was on my way. None of the lost time (sometimes most of a day) just waiting to get started that I have experienced at other shops. These guys respect your time. The work was done right; they fixed the problem. more

Only Place to take your car 5/7/2012

Ben White Automotive is the best place to take your car...the staff is very friendly and personable...they did not try to squeeze extra money out of you and they did the job in a very timely manner... more

great service 3/23/2012

The staff was very nice and knowledgeable. They took the time to explain all my options and why they were doing what they were doing before they did it. What I like the most is that they never tried to up-sale me. The price was lower than other places in the area that I got quotes from and they only did what I needed. more
