"I used to bring my car here in 2017-2019 and had great experiences. I originally came here because they were AAA certified. I had great experiences, in and out within an hour for oil changes and tire rotations. I came to them recently for a new serpentine belt and some lights on my dash, and a blinker issue. I was able to come in the next day and they had the work done by that evening. I asked them to call with a price estimate of the work and they stayed true to the price which was 100% reasonable. I will continue to come here for my cars and highly recommend this business. Chris at the front was very friendly and helped explain the costs and findings on the car."

"I brought my car in early afternoon for repairs (breaks and rotors). They were the most inexpensive around. They had to order parts and still had it completed by the next morning. The staff is also extremely helpful and friendly. I highly recommend."

Shifflet Auto Care goes out of their way.

"I ended up with an unexpected leaking brake line on my pickup, and my wife and I were going out of town. The folks at Shifflet received my pickup from the tow truck I sent over their way. They evaluated the repair and checked with me for the okay to move forward. They repaired it while we were out of town and called me to let me know it was ready. Once we got back in town I was limited in transportation to get over to pickup and pay for the repair…they came by to a location not far from their shop and gave me a lift so I could get my truck. Just great service all the way around!"

"Mike and his crew do a GREAT job and I trust them fully with my truck. Not only are they honest and hardworking you can tell they truly care about their customers! True story; last time I took my truck in for an oil change there was an elderly lady getting her car back. She was so happy with the service she recieved, she gave her mechanic Chris (Mike's son) a hug! I can't imagine there are very many mechanics getting hugs on the job from happy customers. I knew right then and there I was in the right place and I had found a mechanic that I can trust here in Columbus. Keep up the great work Shifflet Auto Care!!"

"This shop gave me the best experience I've ever had. They fixed my car in a day (electrical problems), called me 3 times to make sure I knew what was going on, picked me up and dropped me off at work and the customer service was outstanding. I'm definitely going back for any work they can do. Outstanding job."

"I've been a Shifflet client for at least 3 years now and I've never worked with a better mechanic shop. These guys go above and beyond to make sure your vehicle is right, and any time we've had an issue with their service they have addressed it immediately and made it right. I've worked with dealerships, big name mechanics, and home-brew mechanics, and these guys are by far the best. They don't mess around, they listen to you, and they don't try to up sell you on needless services. I recommend this shop to all my friends and family."

— Facebook User Review

"Everyone was so friendly as soon as I walked into the door up until I left. Every single worker said hi to me as they walked by! They have a large screen tv to watch while you wait...in which I watched Dirty Dancing! They also have snacks and water in the fridge you can help yourself too for a small price. As a woman sometimes men can be disrespectful at an auto shop or try to take advantage.

These guys treat me with complete respect and never tried to sell me anything I didn't need. Lots of points for them in my book!! Service was excellent on my vehicle! I love that you get an inspection with every oil change. They literally check everything!! Thankfully everything was ok! I had went to Monro Muffler previously for an oil change and they told me my tires were worn and I need new ones immediately, which isn't true. They also didn't reset my system for the oil so my said -4000. Highly recommend trying this place!!!"

"Some of the best customer experience I've handled. I myself being in a job where good customer service is perative, I know how tough it is to give such good service. These guys went above and beyond for me and I greatly appreciate it."

"I have been going to Shifflet Auto Care since I started driving 9 years ago, and I will not trust my car to any other mechanic. If it is just a simple oil change, brakes, tires, or a major repair this is the place to go. Fair pricing and it will be fixed right the first time. The most important part of choosing a place to have your car serviced is finding a place that won't tell you that you need work done that's doesn't really need done. Mike Shifflet and his staff honest and to the point. I will be a customer for life and recommend my family and friends to Shifflet Auto Care."

"Absolutely The best Auto Repair Shop in Columbus! Fast courteous service, and he will fix it right the first time. If there is a problem they take care of you until you are happy!"

"Great service and work was definitely up to par. I am very mechanically inclined and just didn't have the tools needed for the job on my car. I outsourced the work to them and they exceeded every expectation. Even when problems arose, which when working on cars they always do, they kept me informed and advised me of the course they would take with it. The work was done correctly and with high quality parts, not the garbage you get if you walk into a parts store yourself. Prices were competitive. Something a wise old man said that I will always remember "you may not always get what you pay for, but you will NEVER get what you don't pay for." Id rather pay more to get the job done once the right way and that's exactly what they did. To those who look at the previous reviews, remember, this is a business. As someone involved in the automotive field I get to see firsthand the stuff shops have to deal with. They must make a profit. Everyone wants the work done for free but that isn't how it works. I personally, had a great experience and will return in the future!"

I have never owned a used car as an adult

" You need to understand why I sought to find a reliable Auto Care company that would meet my needs. I have never owned a used car in my adult life. I now have a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 with 203k miles. The first thing I needed to do was to get it totally inspected so that I knew for certain what I was dealing with. I could have driven from my home on the hilltop to Grove City or to North Columbus but I wanted to see if something local would meet my needs.

SHIFFLET'S met and exceeded my needs and expectations.

Located on Sullivant Avenue just east of Demorest and on the south edge of Westgate Park SHIFFLET'S is convenient and they provide a shuttle, drop box availability, towing, a cool lobby, car rental services and both highly skilled ASE mechanics and office and support personnel that you wouldn't want anything more.

This might not make sense but it has to be one of those little tiny things they have and that they use that really appeals to me... they text message on an isolated text line that you as a customer have access to. My inspection report with pictures came as a link in a text message. Updates were sent. It is so much easier using text messaging than playing phone tag around your availability to voice talk.

Prices are so competitive that I don't believe price will be the factor that pushes your decision to use their services. I believe that their commitment to the customer by highly skilled long-time employees in a family-owned shop will be the deciding factors in choosing SHIFFLET'S.

I appreciate that they use TECHNET warranty services and they definitely back up their words with action.

I can't imagine a high quality shop like SHIFFLET'S ever choosing to use gimmicks or sales tactics to persuade you on your decisions. They don't need to when their work reputation is all that's necessary.

"I stopped in to ask about my transmission because I had problems on my way to work this morning. They guys here were so nice and helpful, even filled my car with transmission fluid for free! Mike Jr. gave me his card to bring my car back for a diagnostic check but wasn't pushy at all! Definitely going back to get my repairs! Thank you!"

— Google User Review

"So helpful! Evaluated the car, helped me understand the options and let me decide with no pressure. They also offer me a ride home whenever I bring a car in to them!"

"Took my car in because it wouldn't accelerate as it should. The tech ran the diagnostics, found it was an internal transmission issue. He read up, and found that Nissan had an extended warranty for the problem. Rather than just telling me I needed a new transmission and charging me, they called the local dealership, and found I was covered. This saved me quite a bit of money - this was REALLY above and beyond!"

"A month ago I got brand new tires, brakes and rotors from these guys, they did a great job, fast forward a month later i ran over a screw and my new tire went flat in 15 mins these guys had me back out on the road free of charge since i had JUST gotten the tires best customer service i highly recommend them!"

"Best overall experience ever. Everyone was so nice and caring to my situation. I had an issue with the warranty company but Mike was able to call on his personal time to get it worked out for me. The pricing was fair and work was very speedy. I will definitely make this my auto home and would recommend anyone to come here. They treat you like family here. I'm actually in the process of changing my last name to "Shifflet" LOL. Thank you guys. God bless."

"They came highly recommended to me when I had an axel break. They were very professional. Before or-->-->ering the parts they told me the full cost of fixing the issue. Once the parts came in (2 days), they fixed my car. The mechanic wasn't happy with how the parts made my car sound even though my car was completely safe and whole again, so he ordered new parts and did the replacement again at no charge. He still didn't like it, so he ordered a different manufacturer and did it again, also at no charge. Again, he didn't like it so he ordered the more expensive Ford parts and did the replacement, also at no charge. Michael Shifflet oversaw the project and took care of me and my car every step of the way. I have never come across a business that put in this much effort and with such amazing customer service! I appreciated being treated like family. I won't be taking my car anywhere else!"
