I highly recommend Academy automotive. They have come through for me a few times. Gus looked over my wheelchair van and was able to fix things that other mechanics had missed for years. He did it in a timely fashion and gave me such a reasonable price. I'm so happy to have found a reliable mechanic close to where I live. Thank you guys!!

There guys are Great! A success story. Gus @ Academy rebuilt my 2003 F150 4x4 Supercrew XLT. I've owned this truck since new. It's had a hard life working movie after movie and since I still love the truck, it was time. On Gus’ suggestion, we repainted it in a Mercedes blue/silver. Took off the bed, doors, hood, tailgate- refreshed the entire under carriage even color matched the tank! I wish I could load pictures here, it's absolutely stunning. The entire drivetrain was redone- motor, trans, diff @ suspension & exhaust. Rebuilt the seats, carpet and added seat heaters. We used as much of the old systems as we could to save money. Gus has a great sense for these things! Ran into a few problems along the way like the first new motor being bad and a cracked header but Gus persevered and has stuck with me as we shake it down to get it right. Gus was a friend before we started and we are still friends today. Thanks Academy for my new/old truck!

Highly recommend Gus and Academy automotive staff. They provided excellent customer service with a 5 star paint job and upholstery repair on my truck. I definitely will bring all my vehicles back.

I reached out to these guys on a Sunday through Yelp's quote request feature and not only did they get back to me on a Sunday with a reasonable price for a front bumper and caliper paint job, but they were the very first ones to do so. That level of responsiveness was consistent throughout the whole process. As far as the actual work, also zero complaints. Everything came out looking exceptionally great. Would definitely recommend. - Tyler K. (5-star review left on loc8nearme)

Bryce, Jessie and Winston run a great shop. We started using them for our fleet service on our work trucks. They are very thorough and efficient on their work. They are convenient with pick up and drop off availability. Most of all they are doing great work at a fair price. Now my family and coworkers are going there too. I recommend them for auto repair and custom work. Thanks guys for the great work! - Parry A. (5-star review left on loc8nearme)

Awesome team and I can't thank them enough for taking care of my car's issues!! I appreciate their honesty and integrity and can't say enough nice things about the entire Team...I won't take my car anywhere else!! - Brenda W. (5-star review left on loc8nearme)

I had my 1965 Ford F100 completely restored here, John and his team did an excellent job! I will definitely be a frequent customer. Thanks to Jacob as well for answering all of my questions. The paint turned out incredible! - Bryce R. (5-star review left on loc8nearme)
