What Our Customers Are Saying
Service was excellent. Great communication, great service, thorough review of all current issues and timeline for future services that will be needed under regular maintenance schedules. They're now taking care of my Maryland fleet. Thanks so much!
Top of the line. I would not consider using any other place for service. Needed 5 new bulbs.in and out in no time. Friendly, caring and helpful.
Caton Auto Clinic has been servicing our fleet of vehicles for many years. There have been many times that one of our vehicles was somewhere else and I have ended up having it towed to Caton because I trust the work and diagnosis. The entire staff has been great to us and I thank them for always being timely and honest!! Special shout out to JJ and Will, you guys are awesome :)
I recently moved from NY and needed the Maryland state inspection on 2 vehicles for the Tag and Title change. In person scheduling was easy and efficient. Vehicles were ready when promised and on line payment was seamless. Interaction with staff was professional yet friendly. I will use Caton Auto Clinic for any future repair work. G. Scherer
The plumbing company I work for uses Auto Clinic for their fleet, and the trucks are repaired immediately. This is important because when a fleet truck is down for repairs, it is costing the company money. My personal vehicle needed transmission repairs, so since my employer recommended them, and I took my vehicle there. It turned out that the transmission linkage was loose and they fixed it. They called me about several other issues they noticed, gave me a price and I asked them to fix them.... Read More
Very nice staff. Quick to help. Justin the Tech is super nice with the wrenches and knows what he is doing. Front office guys are cool and they listen to what you have to say while genuinely seeming interested.
Everyone is very friendly and helpful. They get you in ASAP and get your vehicle right back at a great cost as well! 10/10 would recommend!
From start to finish the team worked flawlessly.
Convenient and friendly!
As has been the case during the nearly 35 years I have used Caton Auto's services, my dealings were friendly, courteous, and professional. Those I worked with were knowledgeable. The work recommended was explained and appropriate, and problems were correctly diagnosed and resolved. Purely by chance, I had problems with three cars at the same time. Appointments were scheduled with reasonable promptness that accommodated my schedule, and I was completely satisfied with all work performed. T... Read More
