Customer Review

"I met Mark and Tony on 08/29/19. I purchased tires and was referred to this location for alignment. I am pleased with the care and integrity of the people who work here. Great attention to detail. Tony explained the whole process and what to expect along the way. The comfortable, cool waiting area was a plus in Tucson. Mark spent a few moments with me as I waited for the work to be finished. I would recommend this shop to anyone who has a vehicle and is looking for honest work at a fair price. I'll be back!" - John L. - near Tucson AZ

What People Say About Us

  • , 04/23/2020

    I took my 2002 Nissan Altima to a local tire shop for routine balance and rotation. At the tire shop they let me know that my tires were wearing out irregularly and they told me to check the alignment. They recommended Griffith Automotive and right away I made an appointment for the following week for an alignment. As soon as I arrived at Griffith Automotive Mark greeted me and told me that they would check the alignment and let me know what they found. The automotive experts found that my alignment was off because of the tie rod ends, they took me out to the shop and showed me exactly what the issue was. They also discovered that my struts would need to be replaced as soon as possible so that I would not have any alignment problems in the future. Mark gave me the estimate and it was very reasonable so I decided to have all the front end work done the following week. Sure enough my car was repaired in a timely manner and it rides like new again. I highly recommend Griffith Automotive to anyone who is looking for top notch automotive repair at a very reasonable price. I appreciate Mark's transparency and honesty. Griffith Automotive is the only place where I will get all my front end and suspension worked on. Thank you!

    Honest, Knowledgeable, Excellent!! Customer service is A+++. If there was a rating above 5 stars, I would give that! Last year another business recommended that I go to Griffith Automotive for an alignment. They aligned my car & it was excellently done. Last week, I had a quick oil change at a place near my apt. They had my oil change records, did a quick inspection & gave me a list of repairs. Because I was so positively impressed with Griffith Auto, I told them what the repair list said. They told me to bring my car in & they would give me a free inspection to make sure that my car needed that particular work & parts. They agreed that the timing belt needed replacing bc it was very old. My car had also been making a squeaking sound (maybe belts) & something felt loose under the hood. When Griffith Auto changed the timing belt, they noticed that the motor had old bolts thereby making the motor loose. Other parts & the belts needed tightened. I would've lost my engine & car. Griffith Automotive not only did an excellent job on replacing my car's timing belt, they also tightened the loose parts in my car at no additional charge. They were less expensive than the other quote and they told me I didn't need a couple of parts the oil change business had said I should get. Griffith Auto inspected & gave me a list of the work that would need to be done in the future (I have an older car), & let me know the order of importance of the maintenance I needed. I can definitely say that I will be having them service my car. They won me as a customer with their friendly & knowledgeable staff. They're honest & fair. They are very experienced & professional. They care about their customers. They guarantee their work & gave a lifetime warranty on the parts. I highly recommend Griffith Automotive Repair Service. They're worth more than 5 stars!!!

    In my initial communication with Tony and Mark they were both very helpful and asked me to come by so they could have a better understanding of my needs. Mark was very quick to discover and present a far better option and far more cost effective that what I had previously encountered. Upon scheduling for completion of the install, I threw a wrench in the works with replacing my side mirrors and it turned out that the ones I provided needed all kinds of additional parts. Mark went the extra mile in getting what was need and making it happen! In addition they worked within some crazy conflicts on my schedule, got the job completed in the time line needed, did both jobs at a great price and did the job with a smile It was a pleasure doing business with you and you will be my "go to guys" for any automotive needs or questions. Thank you!

    Just got my car fixed. My electronic throttle went out and I couldn't drive it safely. It was quick and they made sure to keep me in the loop as they went through it. It was all taken care of in one day. The rates were great and I couldn't be more impressed with the care they showed. I will definitely be back.

    Good place to go to get your car serviced. Thank you Tony for caring about your customers and taking care of their vehicles. It is very rare to find a shop that I can trust to do the job right and in a timely manner. It is also hard to find a place that will brake down the problems to you about your vehicle and is honest. Competitive pricing and affordable. Definitely have my business for future automotive needs. Thank you.

    Really upfront, nice people. They explained to my satisfaction what was wrong with my transmission, gave me a fair price, I was in-and-out quick. I was referred there by a friend who recommended their services. Good shop! They're busy so you'll have to schedule things a few days in advance, but that's proof of their quality.

    I had front end problems on my 2001 Dodge Ram pickup. The guys at Griffith diagnosed the problem, explained everything to me and expertly fixed it for a fair price. Everyone was competent and friendly. I enthusiastically recommend them for any automotive repair!!

    I have a 2019 370Z that I lowered. The car looked great after I lowered it but being that I am not a professional mechanic and don't have the equipment to do the alignment, my alignment was horrible. I could have made a lot of adjustments myself to make it better but I was frustrated and out of time since this is the vehicle I use to get to work. The fact that I work on my cars gives me at the very least the knowledge to know when an automotive shop is being dishonest. I took it to another shop and the lies came rolling in. I then took it to Firestone and they wouldn't touch it because of the aftermarket parts that I put on the vehicle. I talked to Tony on the phone and he told me what the car needed in order to fix the alignment. I knew he was being honest because I knew what it was going to take to do the repairs I just didn't want to do them and didn't have the proper equipment. I also voiced some concerns that I had and asked him if he could check my work. They tightened one of the components to spec that I failed to tighten all of the way and adjusted the dust shield on my rotor so it would stop making the grinding noise. They told me that in order to have the suspension running properly they would have to adjust the camber arms and ride height. They gave me an honest quote and the amount of work they said they had to do matched the time (money) they said it would require them to get the suspension dialed in. I was also able to talk to the technicians and they were nice guys and willing to talk to me about my suspension and heard me out when I told them what I wanted. You can tell when people HATE their jobs. These guys must get treated well at Griffith automotive and it shows, they seem to be in a good mood and very helpful. I'm sure the owner knows this but Tony and the technicians are worth keeping around. These guys will make your business stay around for the long haul. Being that I'm a car guy I have dealt with many dishonest shops and mechanics. Tony's also carries himself like he loves his job, the guy has great communication skills and is definitely a people person. So if you want an honest shop with great honest employees this is the shop to go to for quality work. Your employees are what makes your shop what it is. Thank you Griffith auto.

    By far the best shop I have ever been to! The staff are very professional and awesome to work with. I had complications with the engine I bought for my vehicle and they helped me every step of the way. Mark and Toni helped me with everything! They fought for me tooth and nail. They made sure my engine was covered under the warranty I had. Given all the things that I had going in my life, they handled everything. If I could give them more stars I would. I recommend them to my friends and family! They were more than fair when it came to price. There were some other issues with my truck and they addressed them to me and fixed them. Amazing shop! 10/10 stars! They went above all my expectations and standards!

    I met Mark and Tony yesterday. I learned about this shop from Raul at Discount Tire Store. Tony explained how my car would be evaluated regarding the condition of all front suspension parts. That helped to determine if anything needed attention before doing an alignment. I was pleased that the owner Mark spent some time with me and I'm happy with the results. I will be back and I recommend them without hesitation.

    Mark and Jeff are the best! They treat my truck like it was theirs. They always recommend the best solutions when needed and have the best prices in town. They treat you like family and they never suggest things that are not necessary like other auto shops. I highly recommend them.

    Good shop. Resolved 4 wheel alignment issues that kept shredding tires. My vehicle was a difficult case, out of spec from factory. Now MPGs are up, road noise is down, and she doesn't feel out of control every time it rains.

    Wow what service! I came to this place per recommendation from discount tire and so happy I did. Mark, the owner, was professional, friendly, and explained to me how often I should do tire rotation/alignment check etc. I was in and out in half an hour w/ appointment. Highly recommend using this garage for any of your needs!! I'll be back.

You will not be disappointed.

Automotive News

  • According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
  • The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
  • Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
  • Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
  • Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
  • A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
  • Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
  • Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
  • Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
  • Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
  • Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
  • Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
  • Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
  • Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
  • Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
  • Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
  • Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
  • Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
  • Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
