What Our Customers Are Saying
The service department did a speedy and awesome job replacing my battery which is located in a strange spot under the hood. They got my new battery installed and fixed the tire pressure in a professional and timely manner at a fair price. Would definitely go back. lol
Came in for a state inspection. Very courteous and kind. They did a great job on my car. Thank you!
always informative about the problem rapid response, service completed AHEAD of schedule, always satisfied, the best experience 👍👍 Bob B.
Nelson’s Auto Care is my families go to for everything automotive. I needed car repairs and Mike at Nelson’s offered such Great Service that my wife started taking her 2021 Lexus hybrid there also. Now my father, and my son also use Nelson’s Auto. I highly recommend them.
Service was fast, and the staff was nice. GREAT communication.
Got a state inspection done here. The clinic is professional and will call you before billing. Theyre thorough in their work and are on time. I used their drop off service which was really easy, just fill out the form thats located in the box to the left of the entrance door (the slot for the form/keys is in the box too).
My husband and I are beyond thrilled with Caton! Very trustworthy, which can be hard to find when it comes to auto repair companies. I highly recomytgem to everyone. Very professional as well.
I am honestly glad that my husband's car wouldn't start back in July, because had AAA not towed it here, I wouldn't even know this place existed! I have always been used to taking my car to the dealer for service, but now I won't go anywhere else other than Caton Auto Clinic. After they fixed my husband's car, I went to them regarding a tire issue and they fixed it right then and there...FOR FREE. The people are so sweet, and you really won't find anywhere better!
The service was great it was done on time and very reasonable pricing
Mike, and the guys at Nelson were great. I prefer doing my own vehicle maintenance whenever possible. They did tires, alignment and MD state inspection for me. Knocked it out quickly, with no hassle. Will definitely use them again in the future! Great experience.
