Excellent service. 3/21/2011

Handel Automotive Services is awesome! They're very friendly, first of all. They're easy to get an appointment with fairly quickly to get your automobile in as well. They always tell you what needs to be done and what can be put off if you need to wait awhile to get some money together, so they're definitely honest. Overall, they have excellent service. No problem. Anthony Curio more

Handel Automotive Services do a great job and will get the work done at the price they quote. 2/22/2011

For over fifteen years I've been going to Handel Automotive Services. I think they do really good and solid work there. I trust them and I think that their prices are fair. They'll do a good job at describing what work needs to be done. They also give you price quotes and time estimates too. I'm very happy with them. I highly recommend their services. more

Friendly and Efficient Service 2/17/2011

I have been happy with the work done on my car. It's helpful to have the same knowledgeable people to work with. more

Top notch service. 11/8/2010

I have been taking my vehicle to Handel for about 5 years now. There is nothing about this business that I don't like. Even though I moved out of Madison this summer, I will continue to drive the distance. Very honest and pleasant staff. more

Trustworthy, complete, and on time. 11/3/2010

I have gone to Handel Automotive Services for probably 25 years. I have had them take care of all of the cars my wife, my son, and I have ever owned. They keep excellent records, so that when I go to sell or trade a vehicle I have complete documentation. I trust them explicitly to tell me exactly what is wrong and give me the best options. I doubt that they are the cheapest place in town, but they are the ones I trust the most. In the end that is very good. My wife has a 1997 Chrysler that Handel has done everything for out of warrant. It is in excellent condition, and except for oil changes and tires, we have probably put in only $2,000 for repairs during the 14 years we have had it. more

They have always been able to take care of me. 11/2/2010

I have used Handel Automotive Services for many years and they have always been able to take care of me. They get me in an out quickly. I have gone to them for everything from oil changes to basic car repair and upkeep. I think the easiest people to work with in the community of Monona. more

Competitive prices, piece of mind, great job. 10/27/2010

I love Handel Automotive Services. I belong to a business referral group with Bobbette and they are the only auto repair shop in the group. I refer my clients to Handel all the time because I know I can trust them and they do a good job. Aside from my clients, Handel does work for my family and friends as well. They have gone above and beyond for me, and it is really great to work with another female owned and operated business. I feel very comfortable going to them and having them work on my vehicle. They even picked my car up from Omaha when it broke down. They had just repaired my timing belt and I was on my way to a wedding in Omaha when my car shut off. I called Handel, and they were able to determine exactly what had happened, and they drove their flatbed truck to Omaha and picked up my car. The fixed everything for no charge, and they even had their insurance company pay for my train ticket home. I will never go anywhere else. Linda Kraus more

A very trustworthy family business 10/26/2010

I have been going to Handel Automotive Services for about 15 years, and they have have serviced a number of our vehicles. They remember you by name and they know about the car. They are very helpful. I like going there. more

Dependable and honest. 10/25/2010

I have been using Handel Automotive Services for about a year. They have done a thorough job and I am pleased with the work so far. Leo Edelstein more

Above and beyond our expectations. 10/22/2010

Handel Automotive Services have been well above and beyond our expectations. They are probably the best mechanics we have dealt with in terms of price, service, expectations, and communication. As far as our business is concerned, we will continue to use them. Joe Holford Operations Manager Fearing Audio Video & Security more

Prices are good and the service great. 10/20/2010

They are good. I mainly go to Handel Automotive Services for oil changes. I have not yet had them do major repair work, but I have them look everything over and they give me all the options. Matt is the main representative I deal with, and he has been awesome. Whenever I have a question, he answers it right away. I have never felt the were trying to take advantage of me. Deatta Pinkard more

The quality and service provided is far beyond what is expected. 10/19/2010

Handel Automotive Services goes far and above what is expected. They are really great. I have probably used them for about a year, and they have done oil changes and a lot of different things for me. If you looking for a mechanic you can trust, which is the question everyone has about mechanics, honestly this is the place. They have been good for me. I recommend them all the time. more

Positive experience with quality service and timely repairs. 6/21/2010

We have had several different auto repairs done over the last few years on a 2002 Chevy Suburban that I own. Handel Automotive Services has done them satisfactorily. When there were some issues that we had, they responded and had the vehicle taken back in and corrected. Everything was resolved in a professional and timely manner. I have used them probably since the early 1990s, so 15 plus years, and they have taken care of a lot of different vehicles. When you come in, the front end staff greets you in a warm and friendly manner. Their customer service is good. If you need to have transportation, they make sure it is taken care of. They will give you a ride to your work or another location. It is very helpful. When Handel Automotive Services promises to have a vehicle back, the promise is kept within a reasonable period. Bill Harris, who is the service writer and I think a mechanic as well, has done a very good job for me. He has kept me informed. more

The only place I'll go! 6/11/2010

There is a garage next door to where I work, but I choose instead to drive across town to go to Handle Automotive...and for good reason too: They are simply the best! They're kind, professional, and prompt. They don't pressure you into 'fixing' things that aren't broken, but are very informative in that they make sure that you fully understand everything that might be necessary and/or urgent in the future. Your safety and satisfaction is their #1 priority...not how much they bank as a result of your visit. more

Great family-owned, community-oriented business. 5/24/2010

It all started out when Steve worked at a service station about 2 blocks from my house 20 something years ago. He went out and started his own business at Handel Automotive Services, and I followed him there. He takes care of my car, my wife's car, my company cars, and my 3 kids' cars. I have never had a question or compliant with anything that he has done. His service is great, and he will even answer my questions so that I can do little things on my own. I am always told what it will cost and how long it will take for repairs. I can drop off my keys and they will come to get my car, as well as drop it off. If the repairs are going to take awhile, they will give me a loaner car. They have just done so many things for us. My daughter lives 75 miles away and she still comes to Handel Automotive. At this point it is more like a family. Even my sisters and cousins use Steve. They really take care of everything. The last thing that shows how great they are is about Monona-moola cash. The Chamber of Commerce is selling Monona-moola cash to help keep business in the area even though they are redoing the roadway. Handel Auto emailed my daughter 3 different times to remind her to pick up some of the cash so that she could save money on her repairs. It is those little things that they do for us that make it so great. They really take care of us, and I feel it is a great family-owned, community-oriented business. Fred Kane more

Highly skilled and highly dependable mechanic. 4/26/2010

I have been dealing with Handel Automotive Services for more than 30 years. I'm automotively savvy and feel that preventative maintenance really helps my cars. Handel Auto really helps me keep my cars in good condition. I have never had an unsatisfactory service from Handel. They always make good on their work. No one's perfect, but if something doesn't work Bill immediately test drives the vehicle to see what the problem is. He then follows through and makes sure everything is fixed correctly. The staff is professional, dependable, and has great follow-through. I feel that when you find a good mechanic you should hang on to them for life. Unlike dealers, who usually charge a very high hourly rate and only know their specific cars, Handel Automotive gives a great service for the price and is knowledgeable about many different cars. My Toyota Camry, a 1987, has had all its service done at Handel Automotive and it still handles like a new car. In fact, I still get an average of 37 mpg on the freeway. Handel Automotive stands behind their work and has a good business philosophy. I would recommend them without reservation to friends and strangers alike. Cliff Borden more

They are excellent in what ever they do. 4/23/2010

Its great to have a place you can go, and feel good about not getting ripped off. They are very good at what they do. They go over everything with you and answer any questions. They are just over all good people. more

Super service, friendly and reliable 4/23/2010

They always listen to what I say and treat me with respect. (something that does not always happen to women with car stuff!) They give great advice and are fair and honest...another valuable trait with car service! I recommend them often to friends! more

Excellent ! ! ! ! 4/23/2010

Always available, knowledgeable. Not pushy with suggestions, but truthful when something is needed.Always satisfied. Costs seem reasonable, they are always ready to explain. I drive 100 miles (+ other errands) for their service on my Prius. more
