What Our Customers Say

“Brought my car here after my A/C died last last 3 hours of our trip. They looked it over the next day (no appointment) and suggested that it likely just froze up. They didn't fix what wasn't broken, which was a relief. Highly recommend for an honest assessment.”
Five star review by Jim H.
“Great experience. Out-of-towner that had an unexpected, serious issue with my vehicle. They took great care of us, very quickly and fairly. If it wasn't a 12 hour drive from where I live, I would bring all of my auto repair business here, hands down. Thank you.”
Five star review by Jason Whatmore
“Broke down on Hatteras Island. Got my truck to Pugh's and was well taken cared of. Steve knew I had to drive 12 hours back to NY. Steve also called me back days later when I got back to NY to see how my trip went and how the truck was running. Unbelievable!”
