Last week I took my car to have it checked at Southern Dixie Auto Repair for suspension issues. I told them what was going on and how my car felt unstable, swayed at high speeds, and that it bounced and made a pop noise going over bumps. I paid them $98 for diagnostic to be ran just for them to lie to my face and tell me that my car had no suspension issues and that my brakes and rotors were metal on metal and that I needed new tires. I took it there because they are local and I was scared to drive it so far to the dealership. Today I brought my car to the dealership and found out my car has bad ball joints, bad struts that are leaking fluid, and I need an alignment. They are liars here and scammed me for $100 that I didn't have to give someone. Do not trust these people.

DO NOT TRUST THESE PEOOLE. They won’t fix the problem and then charge you, and then hang up when you call to talk to them about it.

I highly recommend this business's!Thank you Jeremy! He took great care of us and our vehicle. Last night we were heading home on 65N and had a freak accident resulting in our truck’s back tire literally breaking off and the truck’s axle caught fire. We were left stranded and shook up. We were referred to Dixie Towing by a local police officer. They immediately came out and helped us every way he could.

My son was driving from Tuscaloosa to Auburn and had a tire blowout. Unfortunately, he did not have tire tools in his car after changing a tire last summer. He got towed to Southern Dixie Auto Repair via AAA. A kind man, who I will assume was the owner, changed the tire at 8:30pm on a Sunday night without charge. As a concerned father in another state, who was happy to pay, please accept my sincere gratitude! There are many good people in this world, whether or not you see it on TV and social media.

** in response to the reply, I am aware of the situation and I’m very sorry that he is sick. BUT it does not give ANYONE the excuse to lie, blame customers, or lead people on. There is absolutely no reason for how this was handled. It would have been very easy to have told me you have no diesel mechanic when I called or even dropped the truck off. Or to have even had the courtesy to call once you supposedly looked at the truck. And then to have owned up to the fact that the problem that I was having got worse while the truck was in your possession. I would have handled this situation very differently had someone just been honest. But since no one can seem to be honest in your place of business, I will be leaving my reviews up to warn everyone just what type of business you all are running in the owners absence.Do not. And I mean DO NOT, take your vehicle here.I have had work done on my diesel truck here in the past and they were fantastic, but I had a very different experience here this past week.I called Monday morning at 8am and asked if they could look at a problem I was having with my diesel truck. They said they could and to bring it in. I immediately got up, had someone arranged to come pick me up, and drove and dropped my truck off. When I got there I explained the problem that I was having and asked them to also change the oil while I was there. They said that would be fine and they would let me know in just a little while what was wrong with the truck.Fast forward to 230PM, I had not heard from them so I called and asked about the truck. I was told the tech was at lunch and he would return my call. 330PM and a tech called. At this point I was informed they did not have a diesel mechanic and I would have to take my truck elsewhere to be looked at. I was told they really didn’t have time to look at it and just didn’t know what was wrong. Possibly had an exhaust leak and something was wrong with the turbo cooler. But remember, they didn’t have time to look at it.So now I had to scramble to find another ride to go pick my truck back up. I just had a diesel truck worked on here just about a month ago, so I knew they worked on them. No one informed me that they no longer had a diesel mechanic and just sat on my truck all day and were not going to let me know anything about what was happening.When I arrived to pick up my truck, I was given the keys and as soon as I started to drive I could tell the truck was in considerably worse shape than it was before. I had to drive with my hazards on to even get to the next repair shop that actually had a diesel mechanic. I called and spoke to the supposed manager of the shop and he, in so many words, called me a liar and told me that what I was hearing and experiencing in the truck was happening when I dropped it off.Just a word of advice, I would not do any business with these people. They are far from honest and messed up my truck worse than when I dropped it off. I ended up taking it to Johnnys and they were fantastic and my truck will never go anywhere else now.

Overall one of the most pleasant tow truck experiences I’ve ever had made possible dude to Mr. Jimmy! I was passing through coming from Florida and had a radiator hose blow on me at 4 in the morning. Mr jimmy picked up and was able to get me off the road an hour later and was also able to assist me in repairing the problem. God bless him and the company!

I can’t express enough how kind and helpful Jeff was. We were 10 hours from home and we’re in a horrible accident. Jeff came with his wrecker to tow what was left of our truck and trailer, he offered to take us 20 minutes out of his way to a hotel. He told us on the way that he was getting married in just a few hours, yet here he was helping us. The kindness he showed to us during this trauma was over and above what he needed to do. He even gave us all a hug because he knew we were so shook up. Thank you again Jeff!!

On September 8th, 2023 we began our 2023 family vacation traveling from the Florida panhandle toGatlinburg TN. Three hours into our journey our vehicle develop mechanical issues. These issues required us to get off the Interstate and thankfully we were able to coast into a nearby parking lot. Shortly after we came to a stop another vehicle pulled in behind us. We asked the people if they were from the local area and if they could recommend a trustworthy and honest car maintenance and repair place nearby.They immediately and enthusiastically recommended Southern Dixie Auto Repair in Clanton, Alabama. Which, was only a mile up the road from the parking lot we just pulled into. We were able to get the broken vehicle into the parking lot of Southern Dixie Auto Repair in just a matter of minutes.Amazing team at Southern Dixie Auto Repair...we primarily dealt with team members Carl and Robbie. They were super helpful and so kind and accommodating as they helped diagnose and chart a path to our vehicle health restoration. Thank you so much Southern Dixie Auto Repair. We were so blessed to have you help us in our time of need. We only missed one of our vacation days!!!

Where to start...I will start with how Robbie and Donnie are AMAZING people. We had a catastrophic engine failure a few miles North of Clanton on I65N. Robbie worked with my warranty company every step of the way and stayed in touch with me as I live over an hour away. Once they claim was approved, and the new engine came in, Donnie had the new engine in and purring like a kitten in no time. I would or should of been angry over the situation with my car that day. It was something about how they handled, rather comforted me during the process that gave me peace of mind. Robbie and Donnie, I cannot thank each of you enough!!

I highly recommend using this business if you’re in the area. We had a blow out on our camper, on a Sunday. The owner was closing up shop but waited on us to get there. He not only replaced the damaged tire; he also replaced all of the tires and it 97 degrees outside 😇! 8/27/2023! Thank you from the bottom of our heart.
Robbie Donnie and Carl were very helpful with my situation. Me and my family were headed to gulf shores. When my truck broke down. Even though it was fully packed she still found time to get me worked in. They fix my truck within a matter of no time. The mechanic knew what it was right away. After they finished what they were doing, they immediately started working on my truck. They even checked all my fluids and topped them off. I greatly appreciate everything for me and my family. I would recommend them to everyone.

Just imagine you are driving 7 hours to the beach with your wife and kids on Sunday. You hear a pop and now you have a flat tire on the interstate. You call every tire place and they are closed. You tip toe on your thin spare to all the walmarts in town and they have tire and no techs to put it on. It is now after hours, all hope is lost and you take a shot in the dark and call a closed wreckage shop 40 minutes away….. SOMEONE PICKS UP! The person on the phone owns this wreckage shop and is spending time with his family. He says,” I can fix your tire, no problem!” The words I didn’t think I would hear. Not only does he put on a new tire, but at a deal! This shop is a place I would take my car even if it wasn’t an issue, the service was amazing, the place was clean and the hospitality was impeccable. I highly recommend!

I met Robbie and right away I knew I was in the right place. Not only did they invite my huge dogs inside to sit on the couch and love on them (pitt and doberman) we sat in the A/C while they fixed us all around. Checked all fluids and all tires even on the trailer. I felt completely taken care of even tho I was only here for one front tire on the Tahoe! I was on the road alone and couldn't speak more highly of the owner Jeff and his attention to that fact! Great place to go and good honest people!

I HIGHLY recommend Southern Dixie Auto Repair. I can’t say enough positive things about their incredible kindness and customer service.I’m from out of town, and my check engine light started flashing while on I-65 on a Saturday afternoon. Hours away from home, I called several auto shops in the area, but no one answered. When I called Southern Dixie, they answered immediately and told me to bring it in. They met me immediately and checked on my engine, even though it was almost 2 hours after their close of business. Then, they didn’t charge me and wouldn’t take my money when I tried to pay them anyway. All they asked for was a positive review online!If I could give them 6 stars, I would. I am completely blown away by their work and their kindness to a complete stranger. I’m not sure what I would have done if they hadn’t helped me out. Please go to them for all of your auto repair needs! They’re a good business and just good people.
