It's hard to trust any shop but I do trust this one and the quality is what I want and they deliver everytime I refuse to go anywhere else

 ELIZABETH CRAMER on 2015-08-26

Once again, the problem was solved with Manitou Auto going beyond the mechanical fix to assistance that came from generosity and true caring.

 TAMMIA MARTIN on 2015-08-25

.These are the best people.. Extremely thorough and good at looking for more than one solution and the root of the problem. We broke down in manitou on our last day of our trip. God only knows what would have happened out on the road. We got to stay in the amazing town and wAs given great care. Kept us informed. We let them worry about the car while we explored the area! I have no problem recommending them!

Great service as always

 HEIKE BURNS on 2015-07-24

This was probably the nicest car service I ever encountered. The work was done professionally and very quickly without trying to sell me any extras that I didn't need and the charge was very reasonable. They even offered to pick us up in town and give us a ride back to the garage. All in all a very pleasant experience, under the circumstances!


John was great as always! Very personable and contact and updated me.

 CHERYL SCHROEDER on 2015-07-17

They truly think about how to make this experience as easy and painless as possible for the customer. Charles, Joan and John are thoughtful and kind. They go out of their way to get your vehicle back to you in a reasonable time frame and the technicians do excellent work. A big thank you!!

 BRUCE LITTRELL on 2015-07-08

As a long long longtime customer I have referred many friends, family and co-workers. These folks are experienced in such a variety of vehicles, from my Yamaha scooter, 62 Chrysler, 97 Buick to Mom's 08 Subaru. This is a business you can trust to keep your vehicles safe and reliable.

I was very pleased with the service I received on my last visit. I appreciate your honesty and excellent customer service. My car was ready in a timely manner and everything was explained to me when I went in to pick it up. Thank you for your excellent service.


It was exactly as I've come to expect: my car was taken in on time; I was kept in the loop about extra repairs which you thought that I should have done, and the repairs were completed on time and at a reasonable cost. It is so hard to find a dependable and reputable mechanic for car repairs and maintenance. The owners and workers at Manitou Auto Service are...the best!!

Great and courteous service. Took my vehicle in right away. Checked things over, showed me where there might be a problem. We discussed and are exploring what to do. no pressure just good thoughtful service.


My car remains in great shape because I always take it to Manitou Auto. Not only is the work GREAT, but the people are pleasant and the car is always in a professional's hands. I would never take the care anywhere else. Lou Carpenter.

Always a great experience. All the glowing accolades here are for a reason. Have had the pleasure of servicing my vehicle through Manitou Auto for about the past five years now and will most certainly continue to do so as long as I live in the area. My truck runs perfectly and I always know what to expect in terms of maintenance and possible repairs down the road. No surprises. Charles and crew are consummate professionals, friendly and best of all, honest. Highly recommended and appreciated! Thanks again for all you do!
