Let me start by saying I recently had a horrible experience with another local mechanic that after 3 tidings and $1200, I was left with a broken car. So needless to say was not looking forward to my husband needing work on his air conditioner and an oil change.
What a breath of fresh air…how I didn’t find this shop sooner I don’t know…the owner (Mike) assured us fairness…kept in contact with us, got what we needed done…did not feel ripped off and actually looking forward to having a few other things fixed as we save the money for it.
I highly recommend this locally owned and operated business.
Found this place by chance and upon reading other reviews I felt this was the best place to get my car serviced at.
First let’s start by owner / operated. That’s exactly what you want out a business. The owner is the first person the addresses your concerns. The owner is involved in the process of the car repair, and the owner is the person who tells you from A-Z problem, cost, repair time.
This hidden gem is definitely worth visiting for you basic needs, but I strongly recommend it if you don’t want to pay high retail prices at your dealer.
It’s not cheap because cheap does not fix your car problems. It’s not expensive because there purpose is to build relationships worthy of your return business. They are reasonable and you pay for your car repair. Which means you won’t have to come back because they have the answers to the test.
I got into an accident as was desperate to have my car fixed. Tropical Performance did a great job. Thank you!!!
Honest and professional. Owner knows customers by name and goes out of his way to get you a ride back home or (as in my case) a local nail salon while you wait.
We needed a mechanic while visiting Florida and we got to Mike through recommendations. he was great and very professional he took care of us and got us going. highly recommended!
Ain’t the prettiest place on the planet to get your car repaired, but if you are looking for an honest mechanic you’re in luck.
Tropical Performance came recommended to me and I have used them for a number of vehicles over the years.
The service is outstanding and they are very knowledgeable in what they do,the costs may be a little higher than from a mechanic you find in Craigslist but well worth it in the long run since Mike stands behind his work.
I will return to him from oil change to engine swap.
Mike and his guys are awesome.
They are dealer certified for repairs and warranty maintenance and they can work on ANYTHING with a motor.
They are honest and up front and charge reasonable rates.
My husband and I have a large collection of vehicles (some classics, some special edition, even a military HUMV) and Mike takes care of them all.
I have recommended Mike and Tropical Performance to many friends and they have also been very pleased.
There is no haggling/hassling because Mike doesn’t mark up his prices and try to rip you off. He will list exactly what the cost of the parts was and the cost of labor. And he’ll even talk you out of service you don’t need – just really up-front (sometimes blunt) and honest and skilled mechanic.
If you have any car problems at all, go see Mike and tell him Dan & Sam sent you.
