As the owner of a specialty, high-performance vehicle, I'm very picky about where I go to have my car serviced for repairs, upgrades, tune-ups, etc. I've had very bad experiences with dealerships, and nowadays steer way clear of them. So when I found this auto shop (located near the corner of Hampton and Beltline in DeSoto) and brought my car here for the first time, I knew I found a reliable place for my pride and joy.
These guys really know what they're doing. They do pretty much every kind of repair you can think of, no matter how small. We had the family van's motor swapped out here (a major repair). We've had flats fixed here. We've had batteries changed, belts tightened, turn signals repaired here. My car has seen plenty of hours here. They've worked on my suspension (struts), steering column (intermediate shaft), and brakes (pads), among other things. I have never been let down with the quality of their service.
Not only do they fix up any and all kinds of issues, but they also work on call kinds of cars, trucks, SUVs. One time I remember there being a bunch of high-performance sports cars parked out front, you would've thought they were a shop for only hot rods. But that's not the case. They do old cars, new cars, everyday drivers, summer-time cruisers, and everything in-between.
Bobby is everything you want in a car guy. He knows his stuff. One time, I brought my car up here and he could tell what was wrong just by listening while I pulled up. Another time, he figured out what was wrong after looking under the hood just for a few seconds. But the expertise is not just limited to him. The other employees are also just as capable (although I don't know all their names yet).
They have a very clean and organized-appearing shop, with enough space to service three vehicles all at once. They are very quick to call you back later in the day when you leave your ride at the shop. Also, they give you an honest estimate of price parts and labor (no haggling, no BS). They usually order parts for you. But you also have the option of ordering parts yourself, and then having them install them for you (unlike in dealerships).
I really have nothing negative to say about these guys. This is the ONLY place I will bring my ride for any car problems. If you live near the Lancaster/DeSoto area and need some work on your vehicle, Nickles is the only place you should go.
The only auto repair shop in DeSoto,TX.
I had a drive belt replaced in my car for a good total price of $88 part and labor.
The service was great! I only had to wait 15 minutes.
The shop is organized and clean. I recommend them.
