I always feel comfortable taking my cars to Southgate.  Dave does quality work, but just as important to me is that he sets very clear expectations and I've had many experiences that validate how honest his business is.  I would never even consider going anywhere else for my car services or repairs.

I would never take my vehicle anywhere else.  Dave is super knowledgeable but more importantly honest when it comes to what my vehicle needs or does not need. Thanks Dave

Always have been fair and upfront about my vehicle issues.

Dave has had my business for close to 20 years and I couldn't imagine going to anyone else.  His service has always been honest and straightforward while taking the time to do any job well.

Dave, I cannot thank my friend Sally Duffy enough for referring you.  Even though I had to wait 2 weeks to get the opportunity to have you work on my vehicle I could not be happier with the customer service and the work you did on my vehicle.  I waited, despite many friends comments and suggestions because I was committed to find a shop that was small enough to care but big enough to have experience.  I owned a diesel for the last 9 years and my options were limited.  Glad that I trusted a friend and am happy I met you and your shop.

I took my car over to Southgate Automotive a couple days ago to get a brake check, because that is what I thought was wrong, and was amazed at the customer service Dave and the team at Southgate provided. Dave called me after doing the brake check and taking the car for a test drive and informed that I needed tires. He then quoted me a great price on tires, while never forcing the sale. When I picked my car up I was greeted by a friendly receptionist and they clearly explained what they did. Great service, fair pricing and knowledgeable staff. I had heard good things and am glad that I decided to take my car to Southgate. Oh and the waiting area was really clean and inviting for an automotive repair shop.

They are always so helpful and we really trust them to take good care of our cars.  Their prices are much better than other estimates around town.

First time here and had great service. I always dread getting a smog check because as a single girl, the guys are always so creepy and gross. Southgate automotive took great care of me and was quick with the smog check and cheaper than the other smog place close by. Thanks!a

Southgate is always honest and takes the time to explain what is wrong and needs to be done to fix my car. They also always include options when applicable.

Dave and his team have been taking care of my car for 15 years -- and I'm sure that's why it still runs great after all this time!

Was passing by town and got car trouble. Looked them up on yelp and walked in. They were awesome in looking at my car. They were not able to fix the problem since it's a BMW and they really thought I should have someone familiar with a European check it out. But the customer service and willing to even look at it was awesome!!!

Extremely pleased with my service today at Southgate Automotive. My serpentine belt snapped and within minutes the owner identified the problem: a broken water pump. He and his son fixed the pump quickly as well as checked and reset some engine codes. The best part was, I had a bent bumper and they snapped it back in place without me even asking! I've been putting off taking my car to a body shop because of expenses so it was a huge relief that they took that off my shoulders at no additional cost. I checked into their shop on Yelp and received 10% off which was the icing on the cake! I do not live in Reno but if I did I would most definetely go back to this shop. Family owned and operated and very trustworthy. Highly recommend.

Dave and Zach were amazing for me. My wife and daughter had a leak near the water pump. They drove into Reno and Dave said to have her bring it by and he would look at it. They noticed it was a small leak and we did not need to replace it. They needed to drive to another state and they were off and running. He noticed they needed some oil and charged a very small amount. They went way up and beyond what I could have ever asked for. Imagine someone taking care of my family like this team did and helped me out in a very difficult situation. One other shop said no they would not look at it and they would not recommend anyone else. I cannot thank them enough for how much they cared and helped us out so much. I would not use any other shop than this shop in Reno. Thanks again and will always be appreciative of what was done for us.

Engine light problem, they took me right in, diagnosed problem, fixed at a very reasonable price.  Will certainly return with any future needs I may have!

Had my ac repaired there and was very happy with the service. The entire staff including the owner was very nice and helpful.  Will tell all my friends about this shop. I live 100 miles away and will return to this shop when I have any problems with any of my vehicles. They even did a follow up call several days after the job was completed to see how things are going.  Thank you Southgate Automotive for your work and thoughtfulness.

Service was excellent and staff was very friendly, especially Nicole at the front desk! I was able to get my car in the same day I called (needed my wipers fixed) and was out fast. From the experience I had I will definitely be coming back!
