Been coming to Great Bridge since I moved to VA 9 years ago after being referred. They are friendly, prompt, efficient, and trustworthy. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

I have had all of my vehicles serviced by Great Bridge Auto Service for years. They have consistently given excellent service, done correctly, and on time, every time. They can do just about anything for any vehicle. Very, very pleased with Great Bridge Auto Service! They are friendly, they care about their customers and they do listen to what you have to say.

I have a feeling of trust when having my vehicles serviced with Chris and his team. Mechanic Gary is 1st class, very knowledgeable and explains the work that is being performed. Zack handles my oil changes with care and is performed right the first time. I highly recommend Chris and his team.

We came in for the first time today based on the good reviews. Alternator on the truck was going and the dealership we normally go to couldn't fit us in til next Friday. Very impressed, excellent customer service from Matt, who fit us in and got everything running again on the same day, at a reasonable price. So glad we found you, we'll definitely be repeat customers!

Thank you to Chris and all his employees who helped to repair my car. I was able to make my trip to Maine for a family wedding as planned because of the wonderful customer service I received at Great Bridge Auto Service. I had previously had my vehicle at the Greenbrier Dodge Dealership on Military Highway on Saturday, September 24, 2016. My appointment was at 9:30 to put a tire and to check into my battery light that was on. I left the dealership 3 times repeatedly being told my car was fixed. The 3rd time I returned I had to be towed. At 4pm they told me they could not fix my car until Tuesday or Wednesday stating it was the alternator and not the new battery they put in my car... I had to call my Aunt because I couldn't even get a ride from them to my home. My Aunt said I was going to have my car towed that this dealership was being dishonest and charging me for things I didn't need and trying to sell me a car instead of fixing mine. My Aunt said to tow my car to Great Bridge Auto Service where she takes hers and always has great service along with honesty. That is what I did! So I have to also thank Greenbrier Dodge for their lack of customer service and honesty because I now have a great place to bring my car to Great Bridge Auto Service. Thank you so much for all you did for me. SStrumph

I would like to say thank you Chris and Mike for your hospitality!!! While my family was heading back to Mechanicsville,Virginia our 2002 cheve blazer broke down on Rt 168 on exit 1. Our rear driveshaft came out of the rear differential and had to be towed off the highway. My wife's brother lives in Great Bridge and told us of his great experience at Great Bridge Auto Service.So I ask the tow truck driver to drop off our truck at their shop. They were already busy but in a couple days called me back and gave me their expert advice about my repair. I thanked them so much for their service to get me back home. I would recommend them to anyone for their automotive needs!!!Thanks Dennis Carter

The best customer service I've ever had. Their mechanic Garey, was able to diagnose the problem right away. They installed the new parts and got me back on the road at a fraction of what the dealership wanted. Very pleased!

I just stopped in because my car was hard to start. Thought I might need a starter. I have a new battery Chris asked if I drove it much. Umm. No . ? He suggested I start it and run it more often. Thanks Chris ??

Chris and his team were lifesavers for me and my wife. We had to take a trip to Charlotte on late notice this weekend and needed to get our van roadworthty for the trip. Chris helped us make just the repairs needed to help our budget but still make the van safe for the trip. He always bends over backwards to give the customer a fair deal and honest advice.

5-starsI switched from my Honda dealer to Great Bridge Auto. I trust them more and they are always friendly but yet professional. It is good to have a service station that has been around for so many years. Also with reliable mechanics and service staff.
February 24, 2013 – Ray B., Chesapeake

5-starsAs always, the guys at Great Bridge Auto keep my truck on the road! The service is great and given with a smile. I’d recommend this station to anyone & usually do to all my friends.

5-starsService people are usual superb but that bugger called Chris STILL has no lounge with draft beer, chips Lazy-Boy chairs, ESPN. In going on 27 years there it is still two old hardwood chairs that Geo. Washington sat in at the “Battle of Great Bridge.

5-starsChris and his team make Great Bridge Auto Service the “GO-TO-PLACE” for my aging Mercury. They keep it functional and legal with routine maintenance and annual inspections. They check it out thoroughly before each of my periodic day-long road trips to family locations out of state. When any part of the equipment makes a strange noise, acts up weirdly, or just plain fails (as the radiator just did this week), I take my car to them for an expert diagnosis, a speedy estimate, and a competitively priced fix. Through it all, those folks keep me posted on every stage of the process. They are competent, courteous, friendly and the kind of neighbors I truly enjoy doing business with.
January 17, 2013 – David A., Chesapeake

5-starsI’m very pleased with the service I received! Chris was very courteous and professional and helped me make only the repairs that were needed to fit my budget and time. I had been using another auto service shop in Great Bridge for years but am glad I made the switch!
January 12, 2013 – Mark W., Chesapeake

5-starsChris and his staff are wonderful! They have worked on my van several times and they never perform any work that isn’t absolutely needed. I feel like they treat my vehicle like their own. I would recommend them to anyone.

5-starsI came to Great Bridge Auto to have my power steering hose replaced as it was dry rot and leaking. I had previously gotten a price quote from auto zone as my boyfriend and I were going to fix it if he could get to it. Needless to say he could not so I went to you and asked the guy there how much it would cost to replace as I am unemployed for over 4 yrs and need to save money when possible. He called and checked on the part and saw that I could get the part cheaper from auto zone so he told I could buy the part from auto zone and he would put it in. Saved me over 75.00 and he worked me in and had it fixed the same day I brought it in . I have had 2 cars inspected there this year also. Good work, good prices, and GOOD people that work there! They have also done several jobs for my bf fixing his truck and car.

5-starsI was there for an oil change. My vehicle went in the shop prior to my scheduled appointment and came out in a reasonable amount of time. Everything was done in a professional manner and they even noticed a problem that I am going back to have taken care of.
September 29, 2012 – Eddie T., Chesapeake

5-starsMy husband and I have used this service off and on for the past 13 years. As a widow this last 4 years this is the only place I go and trust. If work is needed Chris will let me know what needs to be done first. I truly appreciate and trust their recommendations. Especially as a woman over 70 years old who only knows where the gas goes.
September 27, 2012 – Sandy R.

5-starsI was recommended by my sister and have found your service & staff are very informative and friendly. It is so refreshing to find a good honest group of mechanics. I like the way you treat and talk to me on the phone and in person. Your customer service is refreshing. Thank you for your service.

August 26, 2012 – Ed R., Chesapeake

5-starsChris and his team have been taking care of my vehicles since I moved into this area in 2002. They “get it” when I describe a problem. They are skilled and accurate at knowing what to do about it. They make informed recommendations about my choices and things I need to keep an eye on for the future. They are prompt in getting the job done. Their charges are reasonable. And, through the whole process, they are just fine folk to deal with. I’ll keep going back to Great Bridge Auto Service.
August 24, 2012 – David A., Chesapeake

5-starsWe have been bringing our cars to Great Bridge Auto Service for years now, mostly because we trust them and they provide quality service at a reasonable price.

I was especially impressed with my last experience because they fixed something I had been told by others could only be done by the Ford dealer. Great Bridge Auto Service fixed a control module problem, including reprogramming at a much cheaper cost than the dealer. These guys are true automotive technicians.
August 15, 2012 – Dan A., Chesapeake

5-starsDone in a timely and professional manner! Great prices too!
August 8, 2012 – Terri S., Chesapeake

5-starsThey kept me informed every step of the way and I really appreciated that. The work was good and I have had no problems since.

5-starsHaving been going to this station for many years. First took my mom’s car there & now I take my truck. Always great service & the work is done right the first time. Chris is someone I would trust & they never steer me wrong on what needs to be done. I know how to do engine repair but hands can no longer do the work so I go to Great Bridge Auto now.
