  • quotationWe love Dixie Trail Automotive and John in particular. We trust that when we bring our cars in that we’ll get an honest evaluation and professional courtesy. When we were recently discussing our vehicles, my husband and I felt confident making decisions about them because we had a trusted mechanic. No worries about whether we’d be led along and talked into an expensive repair that wouldn’t really extend the life of the car. We are so happy we discovered Dixie Trail Automotive and cannot recommend them enough! In fact, we’ve already recommended them to our parents who have also started taking their cars to Dixie Trail!” – Angel
