    I needed an oil change quickly because that light came on and found Bill Nelson on the internet. I found a great repair shop. They fit me in within a couple days and I was in and out in an hour. Most importantly, they found a problem…

    Bill Nelson's has always done excellent work in a very timely fashion. When I called,I was told that they would be able to repair it sometime on Tuesday. Since I could afford to be without the vehicle for a few days, I dropped it off on Monday. The repairs were completed that day! As always, excellent service at a reasonable rate.

    Terri, the greeter was very inviting, the technicians were informational and the service was faster than expected and the invoice was extremely competitive. Great early & late hours. It's great to find a local Tucson business this great!!! I highly recommend Bill Nelson’s Auto Services. David L.

    Had a great experience with this garage and its crew. They were very friendly, professional and efficient in their work. Took only half a day to repair 2 rear passenger door power window regulators, and cost half of what the original estimate was quoted at. I highly recommend them!

  • 5/1/17

    Can't say enough for the outstanding service. They fixed a problem that the dealership messed up on during a simple battery change. They also identified another issue I was hearing that the dealership couldn't figure out for the past three years which turned out to be none of the ideas the dealership was suggesting. I'm done with dealerships. I'm coming here from now on.

  • 1/25/17

    The service on my car was outstanding. 1 ready for my appointment 2 service done quickly 3 most important cost was less than estimate.

  • 12/12/16

    I've been in search for a year looking for an alternative to the dealership. What a blessing to find an outstanding auto service which isn't waiting to line their pockets with your hard earn money. Great customer service and very knowledgable. They got my business for my Subaru, Ford and Chevy!

    Bill Nelson's Automotive shop did an awesome job at removing our propane system. We have dealt with them on a number of occasions. They are knowledgeable and friendly and get the job done. We drive about 30-45 minutes in order to use their services also.

  • 5/19/16

    I had been having ongoing problems with the vehicle which had defied multiple attempts by two other shops to identify and fix. BILL Nelson Automotive quickly found and fixed the problem at a very reasonable price. Fast, friendly and fair.

  • 5/16/16

    I've lived in Tucson for forty years and have driven various German cars, until now. I have come to expect delays and huge repair costs. I bought a classic Caddy and was referred to Bill Nelson Auto Repair. The mechanics are great and experienced. Prices more than reasonable. Receptionist has a fine dog.

  • 10/30/15

    The Bill Nelson Auto Shop is the best auto shop I have ever used. The service is expert. They know cars "inside and out" and provide excellent service at a very good price. I am 100% satisfied. The office atmosphere, though a little "bare bones" in terms of amenities, is entirely friendly. I highly recommend Bill Nelson. I intend to never go anywhere else.

  • 10/21/15

    We always use Bill for our business and personal repairs. This time we had an intermittent problem with our trailer braking system and other issues with the trailer. As always we are very satisfied with the service. We have used his shop exclusively for the last 10 years

  • 6/28/15

    Fabulous job at a reasonable cost. I would bring my cars and trucks here any time!

  • 6/6/15

    Bill's team did an excellent job with a fuel injection conversion as well as several other repairs and upgrades. Tony & Jimmy are very knowledgeable and easy to work with. They took the time to do the job right. No oversell, no regrets. Highly recommended.

  • 5/6/15

    Took my truck in for the steering issue that most 4WD GM trucks have. I also had them install some aftermarket parts that are supposed to help this issue. When I got it back it drove like new, without the new truck cost. Very happy with their service and the results.

  • 4/30/15

    Bill Nelson's Automotive did a great job for me. They didn't try to over sell me just told me what I needed to have repaired and other things to do down the road. Just an awesome experance, unlike most other automotive repair companies.

    I have been brining my cars to Bill Nelson's for years at the recommendation of a friend who built race cars for years. Bill, Tony and their lead mechanic Jimmy helped me complete a conversion of my 1968 mustang to a modern day vehicle from the ground up. …

    Dropped off company truck in the morning, They checked it over, informed me of need repairs, and completed them in the same day. I trust these people with all of our company trucks.

    I have brought my vehicles here for years, they are always fixed correctly the first time. I have two repair shops directly across the street from where i work and always go down the street to Bill Nelson's because of the great service and workmanship. One the last places around which has friendly customer service and work you can trust.

    If you are old enough to remember what a reputable business was, Bill Nelson's rates with the best of them. Upfront pricing, suggestions for saving you some money and they do what they tell you they are going to do. You will pay for their labor; however, you won't have to come back a second time to fix the fixes.

  • 7/25/13

    All I can say is Bill Nelson's Automotive is the honest and knowledgeable repair shop your looking for. I have gone there 3 times and have been very pleased with the people in the office, as well as the mechanics. They are a finely oiled service machine.

    This is the second time I have used their fuel injector testing and cleaning service. This time they checked out fine and didn't need cleaning. I appreciate their honesty and will return for more fast and friendly service.

  • 11/30/12

    Service above and beyond. Diagnostics quick and accurate. Source of 4 codes on the check engine light led to a broken check valve. Check valve no longer carried by the OEM. Tony and Jim got a new part (in an hour) that was close and fabricated alternate connections that would work. Problem solved for a very reasonable price.

  • 11/20/12

    I was going to take my vehicle on a long road trip so I took it to have it inspected because it has over 200k miles on it. Bill and Tony checked it out and everything was fine. They really could have taken advantage of the situation by selling me something I didn't need, but they didn't do that. Great service!

  • 11/4/11

    Took our van to Nelson's because of their A+ rating at BBB. It was like doing business with family. Very courteous, fair, and prompt. Also, no hard sales for any other work that may be needed to be done in the future. I will be taking all our vehicles to this place. Thank you!
