    These guys are fast and diligent and thoughtful. Troy was so patient with me and my difficult schedule! He also laid out a list of repairs in order of urgency to help me narrow things down to what I could afford. I really appreciate everything and plan to return the next time I need work done.

    Our radiator went out in our Ram and these guys were on it to save the day! They would not even let me drive it in and ended up coming to my house to tow it! That saved me from potentially from messing it up more! They all are very polite and professional here. Five star service all around! I will definitely being using them as my mechanic!

    There aren't enough positive things I can say about Affordable Auto and Truck Repair and Sunny. I think people often dread going to get their car fixed because they're afraid of getting ripped off. Affordable Auto is truly that - affordable. The pricing is fair and the experience takes a lot of stress off an already stressful situation like having a broken down vehicle. I even received follow up messages to confirm everything was running as it should. This experience is nothing like any experience I've ever had or heard of from other mechanics.

    I echo all the great reviews. I am new to area and live in New Port Richey. I had no idea where to go until I read the reviews for Affordable Auto. And it is hands down worth the short drive. Sunny, Kevin and techs are the best!l.

    I feel very grateful for the work done by Affordable Auto in Clearwater. My car had to be towed to my hotel from an art fair I was in on a Sunday night. Affordable Auto then towed my car from the hotel to repair early Monday morning. The work was done that day & I was able to drive safely back to the Chicago area the next day. They were very kind and very helpful with the cost. They even followed up with me to make sure all was well ??

    I looked up this shop online. I was looking to replace my alternator on my MDX. The shop was close to work and the reviews were predominantly positive so i hit the get a quote button in google. Sunny responded to me within minutes. The price was very good and my service was completed the next day. I have to attest that this was a great experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful and I was kept informed throughout the process. I will be back

    I absolutely love this shop! Everyone there is friendly and thoroughly explains the issues that are wrong with your vehicle. They are extremely knowledgeable and efficient. Prices are very reasonable! I've had my vehicle taken to three different mechanics and no one seemed to know what was wrong with my car. After an hour of my car being here at this location, Sunny called me and explained exactly what was wrong! Their mechanics are top notch and work in a timely manner. I will continue to come to this shop if I need any work done to my car. Kudos to you guys for being so awesome!

    I'm new to the Tampa Bay area and I need an automotive shop I can trust. Plus, as a pretty darned good "shade tree mechanic" myself, I know when I'm being bamboozled. But I couldn't be happier with my experience with Affordable Auto and Truck Repair (a.k.a.: "Peterson Auto & Truck")! I recently purchased a used car and I wanted a bumper-to-bumper assessment of what-all it might need in the near term. They did me right. They provided me with a list, in priority order, of what the car needed "now" and what it may need in the future. Each job was clearly explained and an estimated cost for each job was included. Most of the things on the list were things I'd already made note of; a couple were new news to me, but when I checked for myself I confirmed the need. And, best of all, there weren't any bogus things on the list. Everything was accurate and nothing unnecessary was added to pump up the bill. After talking with them I've made an appointment to have the first couple of things taken care of so I'll have many miles of trouble-free driving ahead. (Oh, and they are "dog people." I'm a "dog person." We need to stick together! :-) )

    They are fantastic! Very professional and thorough. From Sunny in the office to the mechanics and all the way to the top to the owner, Kevin. They are like family and want to make sure your vehicle is safe and won't give you any trouble. I've moved away and would give my left arm (since I'm not right-handed) to find a comparable shop somewhere near my new location.

    I've never had such a positive experience with an auto shop. The customer service was top notch. The staff are all incredibly friendly and they made me feel very welcome. The quality and speed of the work was 2nd to none. I highly recommend this shop to anyone.

    I needed some help checking out my truck. The team at Petersons auto and truck were able to get my truck in without delay. Pricing was fair, service was excellent. I'll be coming back for all my auto repair needs. Highly recommend Petersons auto repair services. Great local business team, Thanks guys.

    These guys are the most honest mechanics I've been to in a long time! My check engine light (and my IMA light) was on. They could have sold me a new $900 hybrid battery and I wouldn't have been the wiser. Instead, they explained that I could take it back to the dealer for a free system refresh. Peterson Auto has been my mechanic ever since I moved here and I won't take my vehicle anywhere else!!!

    How rare is it to find an honest mechanic! He could have taken an extra hundred towards repairs and we never would have known. Saved us money and I cannot think of a mechanic shop before that when I left I left knowing the job was done right and I did not get taken. Highly recommend

    I needed to get a new timing belt for my car because it was 60,000 over the recommended mileage. Let's be honest...it was only a matter of time before it broke. After doing some research in the area (I just moved from out of state), I had called 13 different auto repair places to get estimates on how much it will cost to fix. Peterson's was the lowest, best reviewed, and had a 2 year warranty with their service!! Deal! The estimates were anywhere from $550-$1000+ . When I called for the estimate and to make the appointment they were so nice and polite on the phone and could get me in the next day! I was shocked. Dropped my car off in the morning and they had it ready by the end of the day! Super quick, friendly, and they have adorable pups in the waiting area that are so sweet! I felt comfortable chatting while waiting for my uber and knew my car was gonna be in good hands! All in all, I got a new timing belt and water pump for $550, same day service, and they followed up the following days to see how my car was doing! I would highly recommend Peterson Auto & Truck to anyone! They will be my go to auto repair shop!

    These people were lifesavers. My truck wouldn't start and they came to the rescue. They ordered a tow truck to pick my truck up and take it to their garage. When I found out I needed a new starter and it had to be ordered, they actually took me back to my house and then picked me up the next day when my truck was fixed. Thanks to Sunny and the crew for helping me out and doing a great job.

    AAA towed our Lexus 400h to Peterson?s when our car overheated on a Saturday afternoon on I-275 heading home to Gainesville. They ordered a new radiator and installed it on Sunday morning. Kevin was very professional, knowledgeable, and skilled. He worked on his precious Sunday to get us on our way home. We are so grateful for his assistance.

    I've been taking my vehicles to Peterson Auto for over 10 years. Through different management changes and owners their service has remained top notch and friendly. They are always honest and never try to sell me services that aren't really needed and will advise me on when certain failing parts should be replaced. It's terrific to have a locally owned, neighborhood auto shop to build a relationship with.

    Had to have my wifes car towed to Petersons Affordable Auto to replace the battery ( honestly, who puts a battery in the wheelwell?) Ordered the battery and had it in under an hour.

    My husband and I took our f150 truck to Affordable auto and had the engine replaced. We went solely on reputation and reviews and were very glad we found them. We were so pleased with the quality and the price of the work. The staff is great, very friendly and most importantly very knowledgeable. We will continue to take our cars and trucks to affordable auto as well as recommend them to our family and friends.

    Man this guy was GREAT!!!! I mean that in every sense of the word. He gave great advice and does awesome work. I had a starting problem with a 96 Honda Accord and he took care of it with no problems. He definitely reminds me of the ole' school auto shops who weren't all about the money. They were all about the customer. And this guy shows that. I'm new to Florida and I've looked into a few other auto repair shops. Well this shop takes the cake. Even hooked me up with a towing company. All work on ALL of my cars not done by me will definitely be done by him. Strong Work!!!

    Tips

    According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.

    The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)

    Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.

    Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.

    Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.

    A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.

    Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.

    Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.

    Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.

    Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.

    Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.

    Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.

    Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.

    Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.

    Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.

    Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.

    Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.

    Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.

    Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.

    Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
