I can truely say that this is one of the only place that I had repair done on my car. That I felt like I was the most important person that ever came to Mr. Willis shop.

   
Pros:  
 

Told you everything that was being done. If something needed to be done, they told you what happen and fix it upon your request. Highly recommended for any and everyone.

Cons:  
 Only wish that I had more cars to bring to him to do repairs.

Mr Willis is a very knowledgeable and professional man. He is very concerned that his customers are well informed about their needs and the best way to achieve them. At no time ever did I get the feeling that he was more concerned about how much money he could make off of me. He was more concerned that I was satisfied happy and safe.

   
Pros:  
 

The shop is very clean and well-maintained.  The staff was very professional at all time. Mr Willis took his time to explain the details of my repair and made sure I fully understood what I needed.

Cons:  
 
If I must list a con for this shop it will me that I don't like the television station that they have in the waiting room.

We were not "looking" to customize a classic or personalize my wifes pampered car. We were looking for a "down to earth", honest, trustworthy mechanic to repair my sons car.  WE FOUND IT!  Mr Willis and his crew are professional, honest, talented mechanics that you can trust to take care of your vehicle or a loved ones vehicle.

   
Pros:  
 

Great customer service.  Explained in detail the problem, solution, and the cost up front.  No surprises.  Reliable and the car was done when they said it would be done... no delays.

Cons:  
 

No complaints.

Won a customer for life with first interaction. Good old fashioned honest business. Prices are very reasonable. Not like the chain auto shops that will spend your money on nonsense. If something is wrong he will tell you, if it's not broke he's not going to fix it. Would Recommend to anyone for any issue.

Talk about coming through in a pinch! My daughter’s car was having issues with the clutch. I called Mr. Willis and he told me to bring it right over. As I was driving to his shop the clutch went completely out. I called him to let him know what happened, Mr. Willis had me lined-up with a tow company to get the car to his shop in minutes. Within a day or two, he had the parts and put them on. When he told how much it would cost, I was very happy! Super nice guy and customer focused! I found a garage I trust and I will be back! Thanks again Mr. Willis!

   
Pros:  
 
 Super Nice and friendly, calm, focused, great price, and it makes me happy to know he is there when I need him!

Mr. Willis has a great shop for mechanical quick fixes, to complete overhauls, to complete fabrication and restoration work.  I brought Mr. Willis my 1966 Buick Skylark stripped down to  body pieces and bare metal.  He turned my antique car into a dream.  What my car looks like when he finished, completely astounded me compared to what I expected my car to look like.  Mr. Willis goes above and beyond expectations and takes pride in his work and everything he does.  He has a name to keep, so he ensures he puts 100% into his products and work.  Mr. Willis is all about his customers and wants to make sure you leave with a smile and feel satisfied that you got a great deal at the end of the day.  If you are looking for anything vehicle related done, whether big or small, look no further because Mr. Willis and his crew is your go to shop.  Thank you Mr. Willis.

Willis Automotive Repair is literally a "one stop shop".  Not only do Mr. Willis and his employees have the experience to do any type of vehicle service, they actually have a passion for it.  Mr. Willis is dedicated to providing first class service, and treats each job as if it was for himself.  I really felt like I was a friend, and not just a customer.  The dedication to the customer, and providing honest mechanic service is unlike any other shop I have been too.  Even the invoice system Mr. Willis uses is honest and professional.  I have never seen a auto repair shop that transparent with a complete breakdown of the cost and how much labor was involved.  If I am in the Jacksonville area, Mr. Willis will be getting any of my vehicle service needs.

Just wanted to make everyone out there aware of how courteous and professional this business is. I called here looking to have work done on two of my vehicles and after describing what I wanted done the owner advised me that he "could" do it to both vehicles but it wouldn't suit them both and that I would not be happy with the out come. So I decided to only have the modification done to the recommended vehicle. I'm so glad that the owner was willing to give up the extra money he would have received from the other vehicle just to make sure I would get the most out of my money. Again, thanks to the owner and staff at Willis Automotive in Jacksonville!!

   
Pros:  
 

Professional, Courteous, knowledgeable, reliable, prompt service

Cons:  
 
 You'll pay a little more than some of the cheap places around town but the quality of the service is definitely worth it!!
