What Our Customers Are Saying


"Smitty's is the best! About a year ago, I had a hole in my radiator and was halfway to Gainesville on i75 coming from Tampa. My boyfriend recommended that I call Smitty's. They helped coordinate a tow company to get my car 60 miles for them to look at it. They have incredible customer service, very reasonably priced and did a great job on the repair. I highly recommend them to anyone in the Gainesville area!"

"Smitty is a first class mechanic as well as being an honest and ethical man. He has repaired my 74 VW beetle back to great working order again. He could have charged me twice as much but it shows what a respectable and solid guy that he is. I had 2 other mechanics work on this Beetle but Smitty solved the problem. Highly recommended."

I'm new to Gainesville and was nervous about finding a good mechanic without prior word-of-mouth recommendations. I found Smitty's though google reviews and was so relieved! Their services were very fairly priced, and Smitty himself gave me a lift to and from the shop. Smitty is a wonderful guy, and it's evident just by talking to him that he cares about providing thorough service. The repairs I needed were finished quickly, and my car drives like new again. All around wonderful experience and will 100% be calling them the next time I need some work done on my car. Whether you've got a Volkswagen, a Honda or something else, this is definitely a great place to take your car."
