I've always felt Mid Cities would be honest and straight forward about what repairs were absolutely needed and which weren't necessary. Also felt I was getting competitive price. Something has changed over the last year or 2. Never felt I had to double check the cost they were quoting. Purchased a used pick up for new cabin in Michigan. Knew truck wasn't perfect but first repair quote was $5k. Really bigger issue was the cost of the repairs. I'm not a technical guy but in my research, I found their pricing to be very high. Honestly felt taken advantage of. Also happened with my daughters Mazda turbo replacement last year. $3500 repair on a car we sold last month for $3500. In past Mid Cities would of told me to not repair and get what you can for it. I depended on them for honest feedback and fair prices. Unfortunately, after 20+ years I'm in search of a new repair shop I can trust. Great folks at Mid Cities and I wish them the best.

Knowing they offer a shuttle service is a huge plus, but the service and fair price is what I'll come back for. My mechanic worked with me on my parts issues and I feel like I got a good price for quality installing shocks all around. Staff made it as painless as possible and truck drives like it did new. Thanks gang :)

Due to Covid restrictions (I guess) my regular repair shop has been closed, and my car was making scary awful noises as I drove (never a good feeling). Car repairs are never easy for a single gal that knows absolutely zero about cars, especially when looking for a new mechanic (get ripped off much)! Anyway, I was given a recommendation by someone I barely knew to go to Jerry at Christian's Auto Repair, and man oh man, am I thrilled I acted on the recommendation! My car is older (2008), and it is driving like a brand new vehicle. I look down and I am going 85 mph (I never normally speed in my "beater" car), and the ride is as smooth and quiet as a new car! Thoroughly pleased with the kindness and professionalism I received at Christians on Dallas Road in Grapevine, and I will be return there going forward for maintenance and repairs. Thanks so much Jerry!
