  • 7/19/17

    I called for an appointment on Monday and was set up for Wednesday morning. I expressed that i wanted the repairs done that day while I waited due to my work schedule. I was accommodated and the repairs were completed at the exact time I was given. A bonus that was a pleasant surprise was my passenger sun visor was tightened without me pointing out the need!! A1 service!

  • 7/19/17

    Even though I don't have a classic car, Joe and everyone here always treat me like their best customer. I have been bringing them my Focus for a few years now for maintenance and repairs and it is always quick and well-done. I stumbled across them in a time of need and haven't needed to look elsewhere.

    Classic Gold did a great job on my car. I needed it done right way as I had to drive to Mexico. They replaced brakes and a water pump that had been leaking. Work was done quickly and with a good price.

    We have been taking all of our vehicles to Classic Gold Auto Centre for over 20 years. Always outstanding service whether it is for a simple oil change (the most recent service provided) or repainting the entire vehicle. I am certain we have been able to keep our vehicles for many years due the excellent care we have been given.

  • 5/4/17

    Classic Gold did a super job in performing a custom 4 wheel alignment on my lowered Corvette. I would recommend anyone to check these folks out for any of your automotive service or repair needs.

    A very professional repair shop. You want great service then you will get it with Classic Gold Auto Centre. From the office personal to the mechanics. I strongly recommend them.. They are reasonable and honest.

  • 8/25/16

    I was getting ready to go to work, 7AM when the battery on my car bogged badly. I called Classic expecting to get voice mail and it was answered and said I could come in right away because I wasn't sure if it would start up again. I was in and out within one hour. Thank you Classic Team for the great service.

  • 8/19/16

    I do not trust dealers to work on my car so I use Classic Gold in Tempe as they can be trusted to give the best honest service a car can get.

    Took my car in a few months ago to fix an oil leak, turned out to be a bit more, was fixed in a timely fashion. Just had some issues relating to the oil system again, took it in and had it back, fixed and free of charge within 2 or so hours. Extremely satisfied with Classic Gold. :)

  • 4/5/16

    This is a top rated car repair shop as far as I'm concerned. They are truly an honest facility and provide the best service I've ever found in my 64 years of driving cars.

  • 2/24/16

    Exceptional service, shop, and staff. Simply amazed by the care they took to make sure I understood my diagnostic and required service. I've never experienced such an honest, and grateful repair shop. By far the best place to bring your vehicle in all of AZ!

    I'll be brief and to the point - Simply stated Classic Gold is a family owned and operated automotive center that truly lives up the cliche' "Nothing Beats a Family Business"! I would not take my 2005 Corvette anywhere else in the valley because Joe Pappano, the lead mechanic, owned one and always provides outstanding service. Nuf Said!!!

  • 2/2/15

    Honest, great customer service, great work and reasonably priced! Classic Auto is a rare and pleasant surprise... great place for all your auto needs. You will be happy you tried them!!
