  • "I am so happy that I found Jo and his shop! I had been going to a different shop, Hancock on Bloomingdale, but was quite unhappy with the service and the way they treated me (including gaslighting me - essentially telling me that I was hearing things, that there was no problem)."

  • "Joe has the best service of any shop I have ever been to. He is honest and fair and will beat about anyones price. I have had my Cadillac and Envoy worked on there and both have been completed timely and correctly. I have told all of my friends about this shop...If they do not become a Franchise and expand in the next couple of years I would be surprised...other shops and dealerships could take a lesson from this shop and not worry about how much you can get out of a guy and instead focus on how to keep a customer for life."

  • "This was my second visit (Nov. 25, 2013) to Jo's place. I had the timing belt, water pump, valve cover gaskets, and belts replaced on my 2001 Nissan Frontier. His prices are slightly below other shops (good thing) and the quality of work is spot on. I live in Tampa so the drive to drop off and then pickup is not fun, but I feel it's work the effort to go to a shop that will give you an honest estimate for repair/preventive work and do the job right the first time. Jo even replaced a few worn parts at no extra charge. A co-worker (Richie A.) took his truck there as well the week prior and he is very satisfied as well."

  • "I have had work done here several times and can say that this is one of the best shops in the area. They got the jobs done quickly and also for a very reasonable rate. The owner there, Jo, is also a very honest guy. He doesn't push any unnecessary work on you. Would definitely recommend this place to others."

  • "St. Josephs Automotive is an honest, dependable automotive repair shop. We all know this can be hard to find these days. I met Jo the owner in July of 2013. He was very friendly and professional. I’ve had a few repairs done on a couple of vehicles since July. His prices are very reasonable and his mechanics always did a great job in a timely fashion with state of the art equipment. I highly recommend St. Josephs Automotive to anyone looking for a good trustworthy auto repair shop!"

  • "I started having intermittent problems with the air conditioner in my 2001 Nissan truck in early 2010. Several shops tried to diagnosis the problem. We had a fan clutch changed in 1-2012, the AC high pressure hose was switched out in 11-2010, and the AC pressure cycling switch was replaced in 2-2012. The air never worked correctly for more than a day or so after any of these “fixes.” I resolved myself to fact that the AC would work in that vehicle only when it wanted. I took another one of my vehicles to Leonard's (now St. Joseph's Automotive) in 11-2012 because of a coworker's recommendation. Leonard’s fixed that car and I was pleased with their work. Fast-forward to 7-2013 -- I decided to give Leonard's a shot at the truck AC. This was going to be my "last" try. Since I live in Tampa and don’t get over to Brandon that often, I was surprised to arrive at the shop to find Leonard’s was sold and is now “St. Joseph’s Automotive.” I admit I was a little hesitant, but I gave them a shot at the air anyway. The guys at St. Joseph’s Automotive correctly diagnosed the problem as a bad thermal control amplifier. So, finally, after 3 years intermittent air problems, I'm happy to report the AC has been working every day in my truck for the past month. It’s Tampa in the summer, so you can image my wife and I are thrilled to be able to hop in the truck and know the air will turn on! Thank you Jo Arayil!"

They give you an estimate and stand by it, Joe makes sure you are clear on what is to be done and when you pick up your vehicke he takes the time to review exactly what was done. Family run business who care about their customers. My husband was highly impressed and as he does work on our cars that says a lot!"
