My entire family has been coming to Sam’s Auto shop for the past two years now after some major problems with our cars. I have had to get a lot of work done to my truck and they have always been honest with what actually was wrong with my car. Not to mention they really know their stuff and what they are talking about. Most importantly they don’t over charge you just to get money in their pockets. Based off their reliability, quality work, honesty, and good customer care I can honestly say that Sam’s Auto shop is one of the best places to send your car.

I never left a review before. But I always read a company’s reviews. I am new to the area and brought my 2004 Ford F350 in to have the air conditioning fixed after I realized a simple recharge I tried was not going to work. The crew was awesome and took care of my baby. Showed me my jacked up parts and I was truly grateful to them. Price was fair and I will bring my lifted Diesel back for any other services. Thanks guys!

Mr. Colon

Very friendly and trustworthy. I would not take my vehicles to anyone else. I had to leave my car there for three weeks and they didn’t charge me a dime. They always explain everything they will do and why so you know exactly what’s going on with your car. And if you don’t need it fixed right away they will tell you. Everyone is so nice. I highly recommend Sam’s!!! I have been taking my vehicles here for 4 years now. Would not go anywhere else! These people are so friendly and trustworthy. Anything you need they are there to help. They are on your side and not interested in just taking your money. A friendly trustworthy experience when getting your car repaired is hard to find. These people are it! They are so nice and always so helpful. Don’t know what I would do without them!


I absolutely love them. Always so helpful and they do such a fantastic job with my Jeep.

Ms. Henige

They are the utmost professional and explain everything the shop did on your vehicle step by step and why they did it. Sam’s Auto Repair doesn’t take the easy way out, they really take the time to diagnose and fix the problem. Will recommend and always take my vehicles there from now on.

Mr. Herrington

My wife and I bring our cars here all the time. When we moved to Palm Coast we needed someone we can trust. They always tell us upfront the cost, what’s important, and what to do and avoid. Always helps quickly and never a issue. Def recommend this place!

Mr. DeSantis

Wow! Worked with me and my situation to get my car fixed same day. Friendly staff. Genuine. They treated me like a person and not a walking purse. Reasonably priced. Know their stuff.

Ms. Dickens

Thanks to Sam’s Auto I recently hit 350,000 on my Tundra. I trust Sam to take care of all of my vehicles.

Mr. Corbett

JJ you were fantastic with your approach on the service of my CRV. I am very pleased with the work done. She rides so much better. Please keep up the good work. I will refer everyone I know to your establishment. Thank you for everything. Also, thank you to the gentlemen who rescued me from my battery failure. To me the courtesy you displayed in making sure I arrived back to the shop was definitely an act of professionalism. All and All you guys were phenomenal.

Ms. Fitzpatrick

While visiting family in this neck of the woods, our car decided that after twelve years to break down. My DIL said that she heard nothing but good things about Sam’s so we had the car towed there. We were pleasantly surprised and for me that is hard to do (I’ve worked at one of the top rated garages in South Florida). The waiting area was clean and spacious and the immediate attention by the manager was agreeable. I knew that we were looking at a large amount of money for the repair (water pump) but he threw in extra stuff. After our car had a pajama party with the other cars there, we were shown the damages caused by the break down. The repair invoice was less then $1000, much less than expected. A month later, I am please to report that our car is running like a top. My one problem is that Sam’s Auto Repair is so far away from where I live. I would have liked to have them to be my choice of garages!


Sam is the best mechanic I have seen in the area period. He saved me $700 over a competitor’s quote. The problem is fixed: no oil leak and super service – A1!

Finding a trustworthy and reliable mechanic is always a scary ordeal – especially for women. Sam’s Auto was recommended to me through the Palm Coast Business and Professional Network and I’ve been extremely satisfied with the work done and the great customer service.

Cathy C.

Thank you for your excellent work and courteous staff. I will use you again for my auto work. Also thanks for the ride home.

Rob Frederick

Perfect from beginning to end. Honesty, integrity, care. You have won us over! We will always recommend your business and we are customers for life. Thank you.

Holly Sleep

Thanks for working on our motorhome – when it breaks down it is hard to find a shop to work on it. My wife’s van needs a tune up and we plan to bring it in soon. Thanks for great service.

Mickey Hulsey

Great performance and nice helpful company – Sam’s Auto is the best in Palm Coast at providing honest and great work. Thanks for all your services and we will let people know about you.

Joe & Lucy Dougherty

I have previously taken my car to places that I later heard horror stories about, but now I’ve found Sam’s Auto Repair and Diagnostic Center. Your staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, prices are very reasonable, and the service is amazing. Thank you for the oil change that I don’t have to worry about and mechanics that I can trust!

Nicole K.

A huge thanks to Sam and his employees for getting my car in on a moment’s notice. My battery decided to give out unexpectedly and as a mom, I need to have a working vehicle! Within a few hours I had a new battery and was able to pick up my children at school with barely an interruption to my day.

I have been using Sam’s Auto & Diagnostic for over a year now and they have never let me down. They are consistently prompt in getting repairs done and always at a competitive price. Any repairs they have ever done have consistently been completed on time and I’ve never left his shop wondering if I’d paid to much. From the moment I called to schedule the appointment to the follow up calls from Eric and Sam to make sure my repairs were completed to my satisfaction, the entire experience with Sam’s Auto Repair and Diagnostic has always been to notch.

I took my car into Sam’s Auto to have the tires replaced. They recommended a different tire rather than the factory tire. The tires they recommended were cheaper and better! My car now run smoother than ever and they saved me money. I would only take my car to Sam’s Auto Repair. They truly care about their customers and know cars!

What can I say about Sam’s Auto? My company, Wanerka Electric, has been using Sammy for some time now and have had nothing but the best of services and always the lowest prices! Even in an emergency situation, or I just forget to call for an appointment, Sammy seems to always get me in and out in a very timely matter. It’s good to know that there is a mechanic that you can take your car to and trust what he is saying that is wrong and then trust that it is going to be fixed right. Bravo, Sammy, bravo!

Thank you so much for talking us through our car problem. If you had not told me how to troubleshoot, my sister’s car would still be sitting in the front yard. But I told her you could do the oil changes from now on. She’s just happy to be back on the road. We’ll stop by just to say hello and again thanks for your help. I’ll recommend you to all my girlfriends.


I highly recommend Sam’s Auto Repair. Great Friendly Service and the problem is diagnosed and fixed right the first time! I have 104,000 miles on my Izusu and it runs like it just came out of the showroom. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

Dear Sam:

I’m writing to thank you and your crew for your kind attention and expertise during my recent visit to your shop.  You took the time to examine, check, and explain everything to me about my concerns related to my 2004 VW Passat TDI stationwagon.

I felt confident to take our long trip back to Connecticut over the two day drive, of about 1100 miles.  The car ran beautifully.

I plan to have my major maintenance and work done at your shop, if it can possibly be arranged.  It feels good to know someone who is both knowledgable and honest.  A rare combination these days.  I thank you for both.

I hope your business continues to grow, and that you and your crew prosper from your kindness and honesty.
