  • 7/15/17

    I have used Bridwell Automotive Center for my car repairs for a few years. They have always repaired my car with a fair price and in a timely manner. Thank you so much!

  • 6/9/17

    Once again, as always, Bridwell's repaired a problem that another auto repair shop said couldn't be done without replacing the whole system. They fixed ONLY the specific problem. And Bridwell's made this repair at a very reasonable rate! Bridwell's, in my opinion, is the MOST HONEST auto repair facility in the entire Phoenix area. I highly recommend Bridwell's for all your auto repair needs.

  • 6/5/17

    Excellent customer service! My shift cable broke and I was unable to move my car. They were able to get me in the same day that I called, ordered my parts right away, and I got my car back less than 24 hours later. The price was reasonable and I feel confident in their work. I will definitely go back if I need any work done in the future.

  • 6/5/17

    My work truck broke down. The guys at Bridwell fixed my truck quickly. They were upfront and honest about their costs. Great experience overall. Definitely would recommend them!

  • 6/1/17

    Best place ever for repairs.

  • 5/25/17

    My first time I decided not to service my vehicle with the Cadillac dealership. I came to Bridwell via a client referral. Service excellence! Very pleased with their honesty, speed of service and expertise.

  • 5/22/17

    Outstanding friendly service & prices.. we will now be taking all our business there... hands down best auto repair experience I've ever had & I usually dread the thought.

  • 5/9/17

    I have been going to Bridwell for my auto service since my free oil changes ran out at the dealership. They are courteous and do a wonderful job. I had a tailgate motor go out and they felt bad at the price I had to pay but they actually SAVED me money from anywhere else I would have had it replaced/repaired. I highly recommend Bridwell!

  • 5/2/17

    As always, the Bridwell team was professional and thorough. I thought I had a dead battery but my electrical problem was a bit more subtle to diagnose. They found the $24 relay that was flakey and I am confidently on the road again.

  • 12/17/16

    My Porsche Cayenne S has a unique battery that cannot be reached/changed by AAA. I was unsure if my starting problem was due to the battery or other problem. Jack diagnosed the problem STAT ,and not only had one of the batteries, but installed it and checked out the system…

    Bridwells always does a great job every time we use their services. They are very polite, friendly and experienced. I would highly recommend them.

  • 11/30/16

    Myself and my family have been customers of Bridwell Auto for over ten years. From oil changes, to more extensive engine, and transmission work I trust my car with Bridewll. I have always been happy with their prices, customer service, and the time they take to explain everything to me beforehand.

  • 11/29/16

    I am new in the Scottsdale area and when my car didn't start I had it towed to Bridwell's because it was close by. They were extremely professional and the repair work plus the other services required were completed well before promised. Based on what I have paid for car…

    The staff is courteous and knowledgeable. Jack helped me problem solve an issue involving the left window moulding and came up with a quick and elegant solution.The turnaround time was a couple of hours. Customer service is head & shoulders above anything I've encountered elsewhere. These are hard working honest people...highly recommended!!

    The AC went out on our vehicle and Bridwell was able to get us an appointment same day and finished the work quickly. Everyone was friendly and the total bill was very reasonable. We will definitely return for service or repairs

  • 7/22/16

    Bridwell Automotive fixed my rear Brake lights and socket yesterday and replaced an A/C filter. They perform excellent work and are very timely. they are very courteous and I have used them about 3 times this spring for assorted small repair items. Will continue to return.

    Always an honest shop.

  • 4/28/16

    When the local Mercedes dealership said it no longer would work on older Mercedes, like my '88 560SL, I had to find a new repair facility. After reading the huge number of positive reviews of Bridwell, I decided to take my car there. Amazingly, the service is so much better…

  • 3/3/16

    This is the second time I have brought my car into Bridwell. There are very few places you can bring your car to and have trust in the mechanics and employee’s. The pricing is more than fair and service is superb. They will take you home while your…

    I've been using Bridwell for about three years now and have found them to be nothing but the best. Timely service; honest conversations; competitive prices. I've hit the trifecta with them and would gladly recommend them to anyone who asks.

  • 12/22/15

    This place is fantastic. I trust them, implicitly, with both of my vehicles. Better pricing and turn-around than any dealership; solid work by a knowledgeable staff- what more can you ask for?

  • 12/19/15

    Great service! Took 10 minutes for them to replace a broken instrument cowl.

  • 12/12/15

    They did an oil change on my suv quickly and were very professional. They were a little bit pricey than their competitors but I was willing to pay more and have the vehicle serviced while I waited. The other place said they would need my car until 4 pm (it was about 10:30 am when I inquired). I was very pleased with Bridwell and would recommend them.

  • 12/10/15

    I recommend the guys at Bridwell. Jack is great to work with. He works with me to discuss preventive care and explains any repairs or maintenance that is needed. No pressure, just good advice. They are a Mark Salem shop too so you know they are trustworthy.

  • 12/7/15

    I just dropped my car off to get an oil change but they made it quick and painless! They were really busy but were able to squeeze me in. From drop off time to pick up was about 3 hours. Dropped it off, went to work, and they called when it was ready. Staff was very friendly!

  • 12/2/15

    This team is the best! From courteous intake, accurate diagnosis, and concern for keeping expenses down -- Bridwell is AWESOME.

  • 11/24/15

    I have been coming here for repairs and service for a number of years. I have been very happy with my experiences with Bridwell and Jack in particular.

  • 11/22/15

    I took my car in to replace a tail light housing; they had the car ready for pickup when they said it would be;which was very important as I had to go to work. When my car was returned to me you could not even tell it had been worked on;it was clean and working great.

  • 11/18/15

    The whole staff treats their customers like and old time shop. Everyone seems to care and are always very respectful. More important they do a thorough job of looking at the car for all issues as well as doing the job in a timely manner. …

    Always a pleasure, had oil changed, and two tires mounted and balanced, as well as had the car detailed. Steve always does a wonderful job in detailing the car. A great shop that gives personal service.

  • 8/18/15

    Great quick service with a full service gas station to boot. Best kept secret in the Scottsdale , Paradise Valley area.

  • 3/7/12

    When I moved to Tempe I was having trouble finding a good auto repair shop to take my car to, then a co-worker recommended Bridwells to me and that is the only place I will take my car to. They are very honest and have been a family owned business for over 40 years! I recommend all my friends to Jack, the service manager.

    My 22 year old Mercedes, has not even reached 100,000 miles. I garaged it while raising my kids, and have babied it for years. It drove the car recently from the Pacific Northwest to Phoenix. Other than it's normal maintenance, were issues of parts that…

    Terry was very accommodating and Friendly. They finished the van much earlier and for much less money than originally estimated or than any other quote form other automotive centers. It works great.

    Bridwell knows cars and I do not. I do know customer service and fortunately, for their many customers, so does Bridwell. When I moved to the Valley four years ago, I had no idea where to take my car for service. The experiences I had in the…

    The service provided for my aging Jaguar is better than excellent. I have taken my car to this shop for the past 10 years. I'm always given an accurate estimates. They are quick to get my car into the shop, fix it and return it back to me. Jack and the gang are the best!

  • 11/25/08

    I have always heard about the great service at Bridwell's from family and friends and when I took my car in for a checkup and oil change my experience was no different. Jack is an excellent tech and his service went above and beyond what I expected. I will always take my car to Bridwell's for service from now on!

    I was very pleased with the high quality of service. They repaired, and took the car through emissions. It had failed and I never had a shop take the car before to make sure the car passed. The car had been setting for over 6 mos. and they returned it in clean and fast.

  • 7/28/08

    I have been taking my business to this shop for several years. The service and technical knowledge from the mechanics is excellent. Immediate attention from the service manager 'Jack Lindsay' is an everyday occurance and always done with a smile and how can I help. Jack never forgets your name.…

    I'm fortunate to have received a referral for Bridwell Auto Center a few years ago. I have used Bridwell to service my aging Pathfinder. I feel confident that my car is in good hands. Honest, professional and courteous auto service is what you can expect

  • 6/16/08

    a truly wonderful experience, all employess were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The service was fast which is always great. It was a little on the expensive side, but completely worth the awesome service.

  • 6/12/08

    My husband had taken his aging Jaquar convertible to another repair facility and was told they could not diagnose or repair the air conditioning problem. He took it to Bridwell's and it was repaired within a few hours. It needed two pounds of Freon and they flushed the lines and now the a/c will freeze you out of the car! Excellent and very prompt service. I would recommend highly.

  • 5/31/08

    Great Service. Everything was done right and the total cost was below the estimate that they gave. Thanks for everything. My first time at this shop but I will certainly return. The only minor issue is that it took a little longer than expect. Great Job!!!

  • 4/23/08

    Bridwell maintains the most important trait - Honesty! It is rare that you can find anyone in this business that can be trusted these days. They make you feel like family. They are always on time and they say what they mean and mean what they say.

  • 11/23/07

    Bob Thompson did an excellent job in communicating the immediate problem and solution as well as possible next steps in keeping this car running in top form. I appreciated the straight forward dialog and communication from the Bridwell Team. I have used Bridwell Automotive Center services before and can attest to thier professional level of service and reasonable prices.

  • 9/12/07

    Lane and the guys are great!...Thanks for your continued service

  • 9/2/07

    I have always found Bridwell's service to be respectful, honest, quick and helpful. It isn't easy being in business and not having my car for a few hours, but someone always drives me to my office and returns my car when promised. I feel very lucky to have found them and will continue to use them forever.
