I’ve been trusting Meridian Automotive with my business for years. Mike is great, always makes the experience a good one. He’s professional, personable, and knowledgeable. The whole team always goes above and beyond to make repairs and maintenance painless, and they do it right the first time.

They are accurate in diagnosing the problem in my car and truck, fixed the problem and works like a top. I like their honesty, if they don’t feel they can fix the problem, they won’t try and bill you, they will recommend you to another shop who possibly can. I will continue to take our vehicles there as long as I’m getting great service that’s affordable. Thank you for your great service.

Meridian Automotive has fabulous customer service and is especially good at follow up. Wish their prices were lower and they always try to soften the blow, very understanding and explain things too

My check engine light came on while traveling from Twin Falls, and I needed to get my car in quick. They were wonderful to work with, they were able to squeeze me in, and did an excellent job, and charged me a very fair price. I will definitely use then again in the future.

The team at Meridian Automotive has done a great job on servicing our fleet vehicles.
We had been using another company for years but started to notice a downturn in the quality of work and level of service.
We made the switch to Meridian Automotive and are so glad we did.
Do you want to be treated with kindness, respect, and integrity? If so, this is the place for you. They do quality work and provide piece of mind. We will continue to use Meridian Automotive for our business fleet vehicles.
I will also be utilizing their services for my personal vehicles, and this includes a classic truck that my dad restored. I can assure you the only peolpe I would let work on that truck are those I trust completely.

The folks at Meridian Automotive has always been everything I want in a mechanic: knowledgeable, prompt, personable, professional, affordable, and easy to interact with. Brought my car in with a cracked cooling line, dropped it off for next day pickup because that’s a convenient option for me, and everything was tip top after the in-and-out pickup process.
They’ve been greeting me by name since the second time I stepped foot in the building, making it clear they care more about their customers than they actually have to.

My Durango had a bad wheel bearing, Meridian Automotive was able to get it in for an inspection, complete the work, and get it back to me in the span of 1 day’s time. They do great quality work, quickly, and at great prices! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone

Really friendly group of people that are quick to work on a car and happy to help figure out car stuff. My wife’s car went down and the check engine light was flashing. They were super helpful and were able to get things figured out quickly so that we could get her car back on the road. I would definitely recommend
