There guys are Great! A success story. Gus @ Academy rebuilt my 2003 F150 4x4 Supercrew XLT. I've owned this truck since new. It's had a hard life working movie after movie and since I still love the truck, it was time. On Gus’ suggestion, we repainted it in a Mercedes blue/silver. Took off the bed, doors, hood, tailgate- refreshed the entire under carriage even color matched the tank! I wish I could load pictures here, it's absolutely stunning. The entire drivetrain was redone- motor, trans, diff @ suspension & exhaust. Rebuilt the seats, carpet and added seat heaters. We used as much of the old systems as we could to save money. Gus has a great sense for these things! Ran into a few problems along the way like the first new motor being bad and a cracked header but Gus persevered and has stuck with me as we shake it down to get it right. Gus was a friend before we started and we are still friends today. Thanks Academy for my new/old truck!

Customer Review
Highly recommend Gus and Academy automotive staff. They provided excellent customer service with a 5 star paint job and upholstery repair on my truck. I definitely will bring all my vehicles back.

I reached out to these guys on a Sunday through Yelp's quote request feature and not only did they get back to me on a Sunday with a reasonable price for a front bumper and caliper paint job, but they were the very first ones to do so. That level of responsiveness was consistent throughout the whole process. As far as the actual work, also zero complaints. Everything came out looking exceptionally great. Would definitely recommend. - Tyler K. (5-star review left on loc8nearme)

Bryce, Jessie and Winston run a great shop. We started using them for our fleet service on our work trucks. They are very thorough and efficient on their work. They are convenient with pick up and drop off availability. Most of all they are doing great work at a fair price. Now my family and coworkers are going there too. I recommend them for auto repair and custom work. Thanks guys for the great work! - Parry A. (5-star review left on loc8nearme)

Awesome team and I can't thank them enough for taking care of my car's issues!! I appreciate their honesty and integrity and can't say enough nice things about the entire Team...I won't take my car anywhere else!! - Brenda W. (5-star review left on loc8nearme)

I had my 1965 Ford F100 completely restored here, John and his team did an excellent job! I will definitely be a frequent customer. Thanks to Jacob as well for answering all of my questions. The paint turned out incredible! - Bryce R. (5-star review left on loc8nearme)

Winston and his team are awesome. They know their stuff and get the job done quickly. Honesty and integrity to spare. They'll be doing all of my automotive work in the future. - Vince W. (5-star review left on loc8nearme)

Excellent service, great trusting mechanics, and great pricing. - Dawson K. (5-star review left on Google)

It was hit or miss starting my car and my daughter had to jump start my car a couple times cause I was stranded at my destination! I called Academy Automotive and explained the problem, they took me in right away, and got my car fixed the next day! I will be returning to them for future needs because I received high quality prompt service with a smile. - Monica M. (5-star review left on Google)

Mark was very professional and did an amazing job on my ride. Two thumbs up. - Anonymous (5-star review left on Google)

Academy Automotive saved me the time, money, and hassle that would have been involved had I taken my car to the dealership to have my AC fixed. I was moving across the country with my pets and needed a working air conditioner in my car if we were going to make the drive at all, and both Jake and Gus at Academy were incredibly helpful on the phone and at the front office. The service team had my Cruze running smoothly and my AC blasting cool air in no time. - Ashley D. (5-star review left on Google)

Academy is my number one go-to automotive shop due to their friendliness, professionalism, and quality work. I came in for an oil change but left with more, as they had also installed my windshield wipers without me asking! What a great thoughtful place to bring your vehicle. Five stars across the board, for excellent service each visit, at academy automotive. I also end up leaving with a huge smile because of the customer service that goes above and beyond here. - Britney K. (5-star review left on Google)

They repaired my Dodge Ram Promaster. I had taken it several places who were clueless. They knew about AMT transmissions. Some other repair shop said I needed to replace the whole transmission. It was hydraulic fluid. They could’ve lied and I never would have known. Excellent service. Excellent customer representatives. They know their stuff. - Michael S. (5-star review left on Google)

Five stars! Friendly atmosphere. Reasonable prices. I'm very happy with all the work they did. Jake arranged transportation for us. Any automotive work my car needs, Academy Automotive will be doing it. They explained everything to me and had no problem with adding more maintenance that my car needed. Go there, you won't be disappointed. - Blake S. (5-star review left on Google)

This is my first time at this auto repair shop and although it's hidden out of the way and a bit tricky to get to, Jake was super friendly and appears to really be looking out for me, trying to save me money whenever he can. I got a good feeling that I could trust him. He was also knowledgeable and fully explained and answered my questions. He even washed my car afterwards, bonus! - Jack D. (5-star review left on Google)

I had my oil changed in a very timely fashion. In and out in under an hour. - Jack S. (5-star review left on Google)

This shops A1. I have an older Mercedes and they were on top of things to get it back into tip top shape after I was having major problems with it. It was NOT an easy fix, but their methodical and patient determination got my car to perfection. I give these guys a 5 star rating plus plus...... definitely use them for all my cars. - Anonymous (5-star review left on Google)
