They were honest in telling me what was wrong with my car and how much it would cost to fix it.

my father and I have been taking our vehicles here for years. Excellent service every time. Never been disappointed.
- Tito Atkinson. 1/15/2020
Great service and always gives it to you straight. Consistently quotes jobs much lower than other local garages. I am a relatively new customer of 2-3 years but will remain loyal as long as the building stands.

Bill is an HONEST mechanic who was available at the last minute for an inspection. I will definitely do future business with him over my dealership. He is close to home and efficient with repairs.

Excellent service! Got me in quickly for emissions and inspection. We hung out at the shop while it was done and had a nice chat with the owner. This is where we’ll be going for our car maintance needs from now on!
- Lauren Erickson. 0/28/2019
My wife and I brought our car in for emissions/inspection and found the service to be phenomenal. Bill was wonderful to deal with and got us in and out right away. We felt very comfortable and will absolutely be going back there again if we need anything!

I've taken my car twice to Powell's, and I'm extremely satisfied with the work, and most importantly, honesty from Bill. I'll definitely continue to come here.
- Joen Vasquez. 3/6/2017
Always a great experience at Powell's, he is very fair in terms of looking out for your interests prior to doing work and is very upfront with pricing. I continue to go back and refer friends to him as well.
- James Gay. 1/28/2017
Currently I am a college student, with a small budget, and a crazy schedule. I had heard about Powell's Service Center, and had received excellent service. The guys were nice and were professional. They were a huge help in recommending/advising repairs that would help my car run more smoothly. I definitely plan on continuing to come to Powell's for automotive service. Thank you again guys!

I have been taking my vehicles to Powell's since I moved to the area. It is very difficult to find a garage that will not try to upsell you services. Not the case at Powell's. Bill will only repair what is necessary, and if he thinks it can be done better or cheaper elsewhere, he will inform you of that right away. He is easy to schedule with, which is great considering my hectic work schedule. My last visit, I stopped by to schedule an appointment. I dropped the car off on a Tuesday night for service on a Wednesday. When I handed Bill the keys, he informed me that he may not be able to get the car done as agreed due to a personal matter with his staff. This was not a problem for me and I told him to take the time he needed as I had a spare vehicle (I know, not many of us do). My point is, Bill was upfront about it and you just don't see that kind of integrity very often now a days.
My recommendation is to have your auto repairs done at Powell's. His prices are very reasonable. Why support out of the area expensive dealerships when you have a compotent mechanic right here in New Ken?
- Steve Sproull. 8/8/2016
Powell's Service Center is very professional and Bill takes care of you in a timely fashion. I highly recommend you going to his place for all your auto needs. Reliable, smart, hardworking, and above all trustworthy. I WILL RECOMMEND TO ALL MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS!
- James Mott. 6/2/2016
We've taken our car there for the past 2 years for inspection and emissions. The service is great! Their work is reliable. We needed a lot of work done last year and he worked with us on getting it done little by little. This year we didn't need anything extra done. It was quick and easy. Super friendly and excellent service! I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
- Jessica Smith. 5/29/2016
I visited Powell's Auto Service Center a few weeks ago to have my car inspected. What I found was a diamond in the ruff. They are friendly, affordable, and provide quality service. My car has never been happier:) I will use them for all my car needs in the future.
- Theresa Maxwell. 2/15/2016
I was a first time customer and I just had my car inspected. I didn't have any problems with the car, but the service was fast and friendly. There's not really a waiting area so it's more of a drop off and pick up.
I always brought my car to performance auto, but they seem mainly interested in convenient hours for themselves and charging top dollar. I was a long time customer and spend thousands there. I asked for a one-time break on a diagnostic fee and they said no way and I said goodbye :-)
- Domenick Barone. 9/31/2015
After years of searching for a good mechanic I have finally found one! Bill is fair, honest and does an awesome job. He takes his time to talk with you, to diagnose your car's problem and to come up with a solution on how to fix your vehicle. He doesn't try to up-charge or sell unnecessary parts or service! I am so happy we found him and he will be our mechanic for years to come!
- Carly Siedt. 9/2/2015
These guys do awesome work. We have had work done on all of our vehicle by Powell's and they get the job done right the first time with reasonable labor rates. They don't try and sell you stuff you don't need and simply throw parts at a problem; instead, they correctly diagnose it and only fix what is broken. They also give you an accurate time-frame of how long the repair will take which is usually very fast. I have been to other places that will store your car in their lot for days before even looking at it. I rarely write reviews, but this place deserves a good one!
- David Siedt. 9/1/2015
Powell's Service Center is, without a doubt, the most trustworthy and reliable place to have your vehicle taken care of. The rates are always fair and reasonable, and the service is top quality. We have been loyal customers for years and have had Mercedes, Infiniti, Lexus, and Toyota cars all serviced without any issues. Highly recommend!
- Jessica Rojas. 6/27/2015
I have been using powells for the past 3 years for inspection/emmissions he always is professional and puts the stickers on straight
And is Fairley priced
- New Kensington Area Negleys. 4/30/2015
I've been dealing with Bill for more years than I care to admit. Always fair with his work estimates and pricing. The repair work that he recommends is what is needed - no unnecessary work.
- Wayne W. 3/6/2015
38 years, 14 different vehicles and raised two children. Best place if your concern is safety.
Never had to worry if the job was done correct - it was or Bill would not work on your vehicle. Affordable and Friendly.
- Mark Novaleski. 1/17/2015
I've been having my vehicle serviced through Powell's since I began driving. Bill is an outstanding mechanic and I've never had an issue. His prices are fair and the service is top notch. He's even been kind of enough to drop me off at my house and pick me up after service was complete. I'd highly recommend the good people at Powell's to anyone in and around the area.
- Nate T. 0/22/2015
Bill has been my mechanic for more than thirty years. He always does the job right, he does it in a timely fashion, and his prices are always reasonable. What more could I want?
