I called AAA road service today to help with a dead battery. Just had back surgery so couldn't run down to my local automotive service. AAA sent a young man from Steve's who arrived right on time & had a great attitude from the git-go. He did his system diagnostic in short order & determined that I don't really need a new battery just a 'trickle charge' overnight. He then described the few things that could have drained my 3 yr old battery prematurely. After not starting it for 2 weeks it was really my bad but he told us of another position contributing factor: I keep my 2015 Honda CRV fob in a bowl just inside the garage door. So for those two weeks, my security system kept locating the fob using battery all the while. So I ordered a 'trickle charger' on Amazon and moved my fob to a bowl in our bedroom - case solved. I wish I could remember his name but this is the guy who forgot to fire his car up for two long weeks. I'm sure that he or his boss might recognize who he is but, at the least, Steve gets some well-deserved kudos.
I was traveling through Idaho and noticed my truck was leaking a lot of oil. I took it to Steve’s shop and he quickly diagnosed and repaired my truck for a very reasonable price.
I like this palace
I got stuck across the road
The Bos came and help me right away
Even though he was busy he squeezed me in because he saw it's important
I was in the middle of the workday
I got the professional job done
For a reasonable price
I was lucky could've been very bad day for me
good people The kind you want to do business with
Every time I have to take a car in to get looked at, I’m impressed by the knowledge and kindness that Steve and his crew have. These guys are the real deal. :)
Helped me in a pinch when I had been driving my truck with a burnt out AC motor and the dealership told me it would be over 2 weeks to get in! It's 102 out. Paid almost half than what I expected from the dealership. Thank you so much. They have two awesome parrots outside you can take a picture with and 2 of the sweetest dogs. It's worth driving out to Star from Boise without a doubt. If ya see this... Thanks Steve!!!
I am not a fan of sites that allow people to anonymously criticize a business without having the guts to say something to the business owners face, which is why I feel it important to speak out when I am very pleased with the work done by Steve and his crew at Steve's Auto Repair in Star.
When you bring in a used vehicle for repair, you sometimes open a can of worms, as had happened to me in this case. Steve and his team worked very hard, kept me informed throughout the entire process, completed the repairs in a timely manner, and even worked with an extended warranty company on my behalf. Without going into great detail I will just say, I have found a local garage I can trust to bring my vehicles to, get an honest opinion, and good work done at a fair price. After all, isn't that all we are really looking for in an auto repair shop? I have found mine!
It would be nice if all auto repair businesses operated the way Steve does. Honest work for a reasonable price. I have no reservations about recommending this company.
Steve’s Auto is about the only place I trust with my vehicle. My husband’s employer also started sending the work vehicles in because of the honest treatment, reasonable prices and quick service.
We had a streak of bad luck with our vehicle since January this year, starting with a busted driver’s side window in the middle of a snow storm. Then the entire break system needed replaced (which I knew was going to happen). This summer the car broke down twice and thank heaven it did in Star, close enough that Steve and his crew were able to tow it back to shop, saving me time and money. Not sure if that is something they always do or they just felt sorry for me. Either way I’m grateful. We ended up having to replace the alternator and battery the first time and then replace the transmission the second time. Both times he called to explain options and prices before starting work. I have never felt talked down to or felt that anyone was trying to pull money out of my pocket. I have always left my vehicle confident that only appropriate and necessary repairs would be done. I can’t say the same for other shops I’ve been to in the past. Our van is back on the road and running good. Just had check engine light come on this week and I took it in to Steve this morning to make sure it was safe to drive next week on our Thanksgiving road trip. Turns out all we needed was a bit of fuel system cleaner. Sent me on my way with a bottle and we were out of there in 10 minutes.
Awesome place. I have recommended to friends and will continue to do so.
I am so happy I found this place! Highly recommend them. Great work, honest and reliable. I am sending.everyone I know here. It is nice to have someone I can trust enough to send my mother to.
Steve's auto a fair honest company great work good people highly recommended for personal and company vehicles
Loved holding the parrots great and kind service too!????
Everyone at Steve's auto rocks. They are always straight up and honest with and very great pricing. I took my Suzuki in because it was getting terrible gas mileage. they fixed the problem with there magic touch. Now my little car get 70 miles more to the tank. Thanks Steve and crew for all you do!
Steve was extremely helpful and fair with the car repair service he provided. He is now my main mechanic!
I brought my car in for a second opinion (after seeing the dealer) and was so impressed with the service center's work-up, input and prices I went ahead and had them do the work. Steve's Auto just couldn't be a nicer place-great people, kind, honest and more than fair. They've got my business and heartfelt THANKS!
The Personnel is quite friendly and professional attitude and atmosphere. And don't let me forget about the beautiful birds
Steve went out his way to help me with my car
came to jump a stranded lady in 5 minutes
Taking your car into the shop can be like walking into a dentist painful and expensive! This recently happened to me when I took my car into Steves Auto Care in Star. I thought I had an exhaust problem that might run $500 tops. It turned out to be a transmission problem (and a few other things) that ended up being around $3,900.00 thats the OUCH and the Expensive part. I picked up my car after about 3 weeks or so in the shop excited to have wheels again. My wife and I were very disappointed to find out the car acted worse than when we took it in. We returned the car to Steve expecting to get a run-around. But no, instead, we received the utmost in professionalism and courtesy. Steve not only fixed the car better than before, but he also fixed a problem that was going to cost us down the road and he did so for free! Steve, is a very honest and conscientious businessman. I strongly suggest you go there for all your auto care needs. Thank-you Steve!
We've known Steve and his birds for years. Steve is a friendly guy and a top notch mechanic. I recently took one of my cars to him for repair and was quite pleased with the quality of work as well as the turn-around time. Here in Star, Steve is just simply "the mechanic" in town. I would highly recommend him to anybody needing quality work at a fair price.
Everyone does an incredible job. I like the birds there and also there is a very cute boy who works there and I will break my car just to come get it fixed so I can see him haha
I had a car that won't start. Steve took to come to my house and make an small adjustment. the car started immediately after. Thanks Steve
I am very pleased with Steve's Auto care. My second car was in storage for several months. When I went to start it it was as dead as could be. Steve came out made some minor adjustment and got the car started. He didn't even charge me. How great is that. It needs some preventative maintenance, so I'll be bring it in to his shop.
Scheduled an inspection on a used car and Steve saved me a ton of money by giving me a call after just the visual inspection instead of just moving forward. Great guy. Great business. Will definitely use him again.
I would like to thank everyone who helped me at Steve's Auto Care! I appreciated the quick and friendly service that got me back on the road again ... not to mention the unique environment of exotic parrots complete with dog-greeter to pass the time with! I'll be back again with my business. Thanks you so much! Janis
The very best place to take your car or truck. Everyone is extremely helpful and most importantly, honest! I'll never take my car to another mechanic. Thank you so much!
Its so nice to have a local mechanic that fixes your car right the first time. Worked on both my cars and got things fixed after other shops or dealerships botched the job. Labor and parts are kept at reasonable prices.
Good service, friendly atmosphere, reasonable prices. Check it out
Quality work at very fair prices. Steve always does a great job and takes excellent care of our cars.
I got an estimate for the repairs before the work was started, and a call from Steve once he knew exactly what the cost was, for permission to go forward with the repairs. What a great service!
Had alternator problems, called Steve and took it in for repair. They gave me a ride home and had my car fixed in just a couple hours! Steve and his crew were top notch, very friendly and helpful. Would recommend Steve's Auto Repair to everyone that's looking for auto repair. Thanks Steve.
Nice, friendly service. Very affordable and veryI dependable.Steves auto care has taken very good care of me and has saved me alot of time and dollars . Thank you bunches n bunches, Lisa Scribner
Construction Mechanic 2nd Class Petty Officer Tyler Flower (Retired) U.S. Navy Seabees. My family and I recently moved back home to Idaho and found Steve's Shop in our home town. I am thankful every time I see Steve or that I look under my hood(s) and see his excellent quality of work and quality assurance. I have worked with some of the best mechanics in the world and with some of our nation's bravest men on the battlefield. Including training with AM General, L3 Technologies, Lockheed, Kawasaki, and Honda to name a few, and the techniques and quality that I found Steve and his crew doing as normal everyday quality work is second to none. Steve as a nation wide service guarantee which lets me know that no matter where my family and I go the work he has done will always take care of us. I would be honored if anyone would like to use me as a reference for Steve's quality of work and I look forward to seeing him on my next service. Please feel free to reach out to me as a reference for Steve anytime.
I think Steven auto service/care is the best there is! I recommend Steve any day! He is also incredibly sweet and funny!!!
They are wonderful people. They offer Free Towing, pick-up and Deliver in Star.
I am a retired Navy Sea-bee (construction battalions for Marines and Navy), heavy equipment mechanic ( combat medically retired ) and an Idaho native. Steve's honesty, integrity and character even surpassed most of the best mechanics that I served with in the Sea-bee Construction Battalions Battalions. Not too mention he could of charged me more and I would've still thought it was fair. If you need a mech. work on your car take it to him!!! He has my phone number if you'd like to personally ask me about him!!
