Satisfied with service given.

We have dealt with Preferred Automotive since we moved here 14 years ago. They have helped us with a variety of cars and SUVs over the years and we have always found them to be honest, with good pricing and excellent service. We have never had cause for complaint, but had there been an issue I feel sure that any problem would have been handled quickly and to our satisfaction. I highly recommend this business. - Doris O.

Honest and reliable.

Keith and his staff have always been great.  They let you know what needs to be done and don't add extras.  Very quick and when it is something bigger than what they can do, they refer you to the most honest place instead of doing something in which they are not capable. - Billy B.

Reasonable rates.

I found preferred several years ago and so glad I did.  They always fixed at reasonable rates that one could trust.  They saved me money by finding parts far cheaper than some sources. Even though I live several miles away I thought of them and will be contacting to see if they can help me again.  This is an honest operation. - Frank H. (5 star review on Yelp)

Caring and Honest people!

I'm from out of state and was looking to buy a used car at a local dealership in Crystal River.  I needed an expert set of eyes since I could not travel to see it myself.  My main concern was the condition of the body/finish.  Michelle was so understanding to my situation and was more than happy to help me.  She said she had just the right guy for the job, Adrian.  Adrian went and looked at the car for me and called me after he did his inspection and gave me the details of what he found.  If Michelle didn't offer to help I would of been taking a huge risk of buying the car based on what the salesman was telling me.  Don't ever buy a car without somebody with knowledge looking at it for you.  Michelle and Adrian are caring honest people.  If I lived in the area I know who would be servicing my vehicles.  Michelle was a real peach and I can't thank her enough. - Mike B.
