Trustworthy service. Cheaper to keep my car serviced than buy a new one.

Auto repairs cost money.

Repair always costs much more that maintenance.

I have lived on Island for nearly three years now and have dealt with numerous repair companies who treat everyone like a tourist they can gouge for a one-time repair.

The dealing I had with John and the crew here is the best interaction I have had when it comes to automotive repair in a good while.

I only wish I had come to them sooner.

I am leaving the island soon but I can only give these guys the most fair and honest support possible.

John was more than willing to answer every question that I asked him and I highly support the professionalism and honesty that the gave me.

Avoid the other places and come see them when you have issues.

Thanks to you all!

Outstanding service and communication. Best of all, the price was right.

My go to car repair place! They do good, honest work for a fair price. They don't try to gauge you or sell you something you don't need. They work by appointment and they just opened a very nice waiting area. I recommend these folks to anyone who needs car repair.

I 'm reposting a response I gave in my "lost bayou" group for someone looking for a mechanic as I think it sums it all up pretty well:

We recently switched to Galveston Automotive Professionals at 19th and Mechanic and have been very pleased. Realize everyone has the same rate card and computer system to do estimates so what you're looking for is honesty and integrity. These guys will tell you all the crap that should be done but if you ask, they'll tell what really needs to be done. Case in point is my Son's old Civic. Wouldn't start. Starter had crapped and I knew that was the highest probability after we replaced the battery. So the master mechanic takes it for a spin afterwards and tells me he wouldn't drive this car as the wheel bearings were shot. I thought the CV joints were the issue. You should have seen the bearings. They know their stuff and are straight shooters. Also solved the AC issue for free and showed me how to disable the hot / cold flap which was the problem. Don't expect a deal but also don't expect to be ripped off. Reason, btw, for my switch from prior shop is the last group I used retired / sold the business and I really didn't want to try the new owners - no particular reason other than it didn't feel right. These guys at GAP have my vote hands down.

I had my oil changed at Mazda of Clear Lake. At the end of the visit they presented me with a list of items needing immediate attention and the services would have added up to well over $3000. I drove it off the lot and brought it to Galveston Automotive Professionals. They checked the car for everything on the list. Evidently there was only about $300 of items needing to be addressed. They took care of it all. We appreciate their honesty. We will be back.

We were on vacation in Galveston from Nebraska. Our car started making a weird noise so I looked up car repair and Galveston Auto Repair was well rated. I know why! They got us in quickly, found the problem was a very minor, quick fix and then did not charge us! They were friendly, courteous, quick and gave us recommendations of things that we could go do on the Strand while we waited

If we lived in Galveston, this would definitely be were we would regularly bring our vehicles.

These guys are amazing! Saved our vacation! We were on vacation in Galveston and on the way there, the van started shaking badly. Then the brakes started messing up after we got there. We took the van to Galveston Automotive Pros and they were too full to get us in. But they were willing to take a quick look to see if it was safe for us to drive. They were so kind to pull off the tire that seemed to be the problem and sure enough, it was just a bad tire that had caused the bolt on the brake to shake loose and fly off! They quickly put in a bolt and fixed the problem! We went to a tire place to get a new tire and the problem was solved quickly! They went above and beyond to help us knowing we weren't local and wouldn't be back regularly. Just good people willing to help. Thank you!

Traveling cross country from san Diego CA, pulling our 5th wheel trailer the air conditioning went out on our Dodge 2500 diesel. We needed our air conditioning recharged after my husband installed a new compressor and other necessary a c parts. They stayed late to help us and also figured out that our fan clutch was going out too. They couldn't do the work because they dont work on diesel engines but we were so thankful for the knowledge! Cool shop and great people.

This is my go to mechanic in Galveston! My car has been here on two separate occasions and both times they have been able to fix the issue with a quick turnaround time. The service advisor, Gerald, is very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable putting my car in their hands and know that they do quality work. Highly recommend!

I have an older car and so have used many mechanics on the Island (1987 Mercedes 560SL). Galveston Automotive Pros are just that - Professional. They have the knowledge and skill to do the repair and do it right. They do exceptional work in a timely manner and were honest with me when the problem was out of their realm. I highly recommend them!

Was very welcoming and quick, they fixed my problem immediately after tuning a computer check and sent me out with a smile! I will definitely return for any more car trouble.

Our car died and I used Yelp reviews to select Galveston Automotive Pros. They lived up to all the glowing reviews. They explained everything that had to be done to the car and even told us about a fix that could wait but to keep an eye on. I can't say enough to show our appreciation. You won't go wrong trusting these good men !!!

Great place to take your car. John and Gerald are terrific. The shop floor is so clean and the work areas are so tidy that you know care is being taken here. You can count on John to give you honest time and cost estimates and the work is always good.

It can usually be very difficult to find a good place to get your car fixed. I have an old car and get problems every now and then, and this place has been my go-to. Not only are the staff very professional and easy to work with, they are very fair and never rip you off. Quality place and I wouldn't go anywhere else.

I had the serpentine belt replaced on my rig and everything went well. I'll be going back.

In every town and city I've lived in, I have struggled to find a good auto repair shop and a decent veterinarian. Discovering Galveston Auto Pros has been a relief - I fully trust these guys after my first experience. The prices were fair, the service excellent, and the mechanics very knowledgeable. Every employee I spoke with at the shop seemed to truly care about their customers' vehicles. The mechanic working on my car sent me updates via text message and even dropped my car off to my house when it was ready. I will definitely be back!

So far, so good. Dropped my car off this AM, they did an oil change and tightened a belt for $85 total. The guy at the front, Gerald, was polite, friendly, and professional both on the phone and in person. My dog was in the backseat when I brought the car in- I tried to corral her, but she ended up getting in his face anyways (pretty sure she kissed him) lol, and he handled it like a pro. I'll be back.

This is one of the best auto repair shops I've ever worked with and I've used them for at least a decade for both a 1967 MG Midget and My Toyota Pickup. John Eanes owns the place and treats his customers really well. As an example, I had an electrical issue with the MG that turned out to be a loose wire in the steering column. They literally spent 6 hours until they were able to finally track it down but only charged for the time it should have taken if they'd found it immediately. I think the bill was around 60 bucks. You can't beat that. The place is housed in what used to be the old antique car museum, across from ANAT. He keeps it so clean in there you could eat off the floor. Quick turnaround, no "tagged on extras". A mechanic you want to know for a lifetime.

Outstanding service, very professional and curteous. I was visiting Galveston and had car problems on the day I was heading back home. They fit me into their busy schedulle and had me on my way as soon as was humanly possible. They even offered me a ride back to where I was staying. It's never nice to have car issues while on vacation, but these guys made it as painless as could be. I highly recommend them.
