Here's what some of our satisfied customers have to say about Compton's Automotive:

Fantastic and timely service. The staff at Compton's Automotive is knowledgeable and honest. The fresh baked cookies made daily are not a bad treat either. Thanks for taking great care of my minivan!

Lisa H.

Great staff, super friendly and knowledgeable, 100% recommend.


Through assessment and quick turn-around on a major engine job! Car runs like new again with a 200k engine.

I've been going to Compton's Automotive since I moved here, and it was recommended by a coworker, for about 5 years. They are always helpful, honest, and priced fairly. They have even suggested bringing my car to Ford for certain repairs, as they felt it may be covered under warranty when they easily could have just made the repairs themselves and profited. This is the only mechanic I use, and I recommend them to anyone.

You don't typically hear the words "mechanic" and "honest" in the same sentence. But I can honestly say that these guys are honest and caring. Whether you drop off or wait, I promise you'll have a perfect experience each and every time.


I wouldn't trust my car to anyone else! This place is great! They are honest and will never try to up-sell services. The cookies sure don't hurt either!

Mandy P.

Knowledgeable and professional staff! Personal and company vehicles have a home for repairs. Ken is a rock star!

We have been taking our vehicles to Todd and the gang for five years, and I have never been displeased with their service. Compton's is family owned, and as soon as you step thtough that door, you are treated like part of their family. These people will treat you like a person, treat your vehicle like it is theirs and will always give you a fair price.

I absolutely love this shop!! I'm new to the Charlotte area and had a very hard time finding a reliable shop. This was my 4th shop and I was already skeptical. I must say the staff here is wonderful (Ken is my favorite!), they took time out to explain to me what exactly they were doing to my vehicle, and explained the risks and possibilities. Very honest and transparent. I really appreciate all their time and efforts, and already been recommending family and friends to check them out!

This auto shop is one of the best places I have ever taken my car. They are very friendly and will tell you exactly what is wrong when you bring in your car and show you the piece if it's available. They do great work on my Chevy, and I will continue to bring it here for maintenance and check ups. I would highly recommend this place to everybody. Every once in a while they will also do charity work with an animal shelter so that's a major plus.


I trust them with thirty plus fleet vehicles and my personal vehicle. 5 stars is not enough. Good cookies as well.

I've been coming here for years, and these guys treat everyone right! This is the perfect example of how a business should be run.

Ken communicated the problems with my truck clearly, showing me the exact parts affected prior to performing any repairs and presented options to correct deficiencies. The brakes, steering and carburetor issues that they repaired are performing better than they ever have in the 18 years I've owned the truck. I trust them.

We are a small local company and picked Compton's based on their existing reviews. They did not disappoint. The service was excellent starting with my initial phone call right through to picking up the vehicle once the repairs were complete. We will use Compton's for our fleet of 30+ vehicles going forward. Thanks!

Dawn S.

As a single woman, it is great to have a place I can trust will not do unnecessary work or overcharge. They are also good about telling you honestly what is wrong and what service you might need in the near future. Thanks to all the people at Compton's for helping lower my stress level during a stressful situation like a broken down car!!!

Beth A.

Friendly fast Service with competitive prices.

Herbert B.

Compton's Automotive is hands down the best mechanic shop I've ever done business with. The prices are fair and honest for quality work and parts. Repairs are completed in a timely manner with phenomenal customer service. If something should be covered by manufacturer warranty, they will tell you so and not take your money unnecessarily. Also, fresh homemade cookies and the hardest working friendly shop dog you'll ever meet.

Jacob H.

Amazing service, these guys are great. Even though I didn't have an appointment, they squeezed me in and I didn't have to wait a long time either. Single women, I definitely recommend this place. The didn't try to sell me services I didn't need. They were clear in pointing out things that will need to be done in the future. Their prices were better than any shop I've been to. This is definitely my new auto shop.

I usually do not write reviews, but my time at Compton's was fantastic, and this needed to be shared. I'm a nurse, and I brought my 2013 Mustang GT California special in to install my high performance brake pads...Before they even touched my car, the mechanic put on gloves and covered my leather seats and floor mats with plastic. It is hard to find people who appreciate the cleanliness of a car and take the time to ensure my car would be as clean as when I brought it in...I look forward to my next modification or repair as I know who exactly to go to with real confidence. Its a great peace of mind...

Ryan H.

Awesome awesome. If you're a single woman it's a must! They treated me so kind. My brakes were grinding, and they let me come in ASAP. Come to find out nothing was wrong, and I made them take $20! Their mom is sooo sweet and the cookies delicious! I've told everyone I know.

Kara S.

I really love Compton's Auto because every visit is a wonderful one. Even on a more personal level they make me feel like family. My vehicle is in excellent condition because of Compton's. Todd and his staff always greet their customers with a warm smile and will let you know what's wrong with your vehicle before the tech works on it. Other auto shops aren't as friendly. They also charge you a lot more for parts, but at Compton's they give you the best deals. This is why I'm staying with Compton's Auto.

Lolita L.

This is the 3rd vehicle I've taken to Comptons, for repair or maintinance. There have never been issues. They do what we agree upon and advise if they see something else needed. They all are friendly and go above what I've seen in other shops....There are parts replacers and then there are auto mechanics. Shoot, I can replace parts and get it right eventually. I save time and money coming to Comptons.

I loved my experience with Compton's. they were punctual, up front, and educated me on what they were doing with my car. They have awesome customer service and they provide a warm and friendly environment. I recommend them to anyone in NC.
