Not sure if its still there, but Action Auto Repair on 19th ave and deer valley always impressed me. Wish they weren't such aa drive now.

I was referred to Darryl by some very happy Jeepers I work with. He can be tough to get a hold of at times, but he seems spot on. The price is great and when you talk to him he gives you great, professional attention. I will post back up after my Teraflex 2.5" BB, JKS Quicker Disco's, and OEM rubicon shocks are installed.

Not Glendale, but still...

Gold Dust Auto at 90th St. & Mountain View in Scottsdale, ask for Jeff. Longer drive for you but very good and TOTALLY honest. Services my personal and work vehicles. Couldn't be happier and worth the drive.

I know this is a few years late but I figured I'd start here and ask. Is the absolute off-road still a reputable shop? I've got a leak in the area of my water pump and Ive replaced all the hoses over the past year. I can't figure it out and living out of an apartment without proper tools and equipment has led me to seek a professional. If not absolute, are there any good places to take it in Phoenix. I live near the Deer Valley Airport and have an '03 4 banger. Thank you

I take my regular mechanical work to Jake's Bethany Auto. Not the cheapest place, but you get what you pay for and don't pay for anything you don't need. Good fair people who stand behind their work.
