Words from our clients

"I recently moved to Alexandria from DC and needed a local auto shop for a simple turn signal repair. I could not have been luckier to find Yates Automotive! Immediate service, no pressure for other repairs, and friendly conversation. The price was incredible too! If there was a 10 star option on Yelp, this place would get it."
