Best Auto Repair Shop - Regional Winners

From oil changes to body repair to engine breakdowns, we all have occasion to require the service of a car mechanic. But which should you choose?

If you're like most drivers, you know how to operate a car, but know little of the car's operation. How then can you possibly know whether a mechanic is correct and truthful when he tells you what's wrong with your vehicle and how much it's going to cost you to get back on the road?

Patch wanted to help readers find the best, most reliable auto mechanics around. Throughout Rhode Island, Patch polled readers to find out where's the best place to take a car for service. After five days of voting, the winners are in. Check out who won below and let us know which you think is best in the comment section below. Even better, the next time you need repairs, pick one of the featured mechanics and let us know how it went.

I have used A-1 Custom Auto Body several times and have been really impressed with their work, but even more impressed with the fact they really cared about me as a customer. WELL DONE

Maybe Patrick can compile a list of mechanical repair stations in the state.

Oh please, who the heck are you, and how do you come to this conclusion? These people must have paid alot to be listed. What a joke.

Hi users - no business paid to be listed in these polls. As editors, we try to compile a good smattering of poll options and ask users to write in votes in the comment section.
