Charlie is the most honest auto mechanic I have ever known, aside from my Father! He will never do an unnecessary repair, and will tell you when he or his very capable staff observe a "down-the-road" problem to watch with your vehicle. And he is courteous, respectful & takes pride in his top quality work! You can count on Charlie's Car Care to be "Caring"!

Joyce Kirchoffer

Timothy Frary

Visited Charlie's Car Care for the first time and was impressed and very pleased with the service. Was told by another garage that I needed brakes in addition to other things. No brakes were needed. Very honest and reasonably priced. Car was repaired in time I was told it would be. Definitely will be using them exclusively in the future.

Peggy Powell

Thanks for a great experience at your shop. AC is working very well.

Helen Whitman

Tried 'em out 'cause I had a Costco 15% discount voucher, but it turns out that the job (alignment) cost the least there even before that. They've been in business for a long time, and it's truly a family business. Charlie's dad told me he went into this business years ago because it's work he loves. THAT kind of dedication is priceless. I'm pleased to have found my mechanic in Florida.

Mike Hess

Work is always professionally completed with care to review with the customer cost impacts along the way.

Joe Treshler

Honest. Charlie and his team always look out for the customer and doesn't add unnecessary work and try and up sell you. I have been going to Charlie's for overtime.

Tim Heller

Best team of mechanics in town. Also trust your families vehicles with Charlie Car care. Also, notice how busy he is all the time.

Tim Heller

Car repairs and maintenance are not fun, but Charlie's makes it as painless and quick as possible. Very reliable.

Dawn Britner

The best place I have found for auto repairs in the Dunedin/Clearwater area. Charlies repairs most problems and does it right the first time. Have never had a problem with getting my car in for repair and it gets repaired in a timely fashion. Thank you Charlies.

Diane Makowski

Always friendly and excellent service.

David Derousse

Very trusting and excellent work.

Dawn Clouser

They are always the best. They are very knowledgeable.

Julia Fry

WOW - Charlie's is great!! I recently moved to Clearwater and was looking for a reputable place (NOT the car dealer) to have my 2008 MKZ serviced. Charlie and his team exceed my expectations, "bumper to bumper".

Martie Wood

Great service.

Lloyd Plum

Great place, great people.

Lloyd Plum

Work is always professionally completed, with sensitivity to the costs that really need to be incurred.

Joe Treshler

Honest mechanic is usually an oxymoron but not with Charley. He's been taking care of my work van and personal car for years and has always done a great job and slightly less cost than other shops. Took our Hyundai to the dealer where they lied and said we needed ($800+) repairs. Told Charley, he didn't see the need to repair. He could've said there was a problem and charged a lesser price but didn't . Charley Rocks!

Shawn Lowery

Charlie & Company are the best guys in town. Honest, affordable and a lot of fun. Go there. You'll be glad you did, and sorry you didn't sooner.

Chip Haynes

Excellent service very professional

Dave Kavanagh

Charlie's did a very thorough job and took my car in right away. They are very friendly there and customer-focused. They even provided me with transportation to go and pick up my car. Thank you! I will be back.
