      Rick And his staff are quite simply the best in Austin. Friendly, fast and very reasonable. I will not take my car anywhere else.

      Wow, what a great place. Super nice and helpful guys. They're funny and easy to talk to, and explain things to you really well without talking down to you AT ALL. The shop is tidy and clean. I came in with what I thought was a simple fix, but it turned out to be catastrophic engine failure. :( SW Automotive could have made up anything in an attempt to get more work out of me, but instead, they gave me a bunch of tips about car shopping and how to get into a more reliable car. They even took a quick look at a used car I was test-driving and offered advice on that. Many thumbs up for this place.

      The owner, Rick and his staff are men of integrity, ethics, honest and solid value standards. You will not go wrong with them. I most definitely recommend this automotive repair business! It is top-of-the-mark! I find it outstanding these men actually listen to a woman talk of what seems to be wrong and they take the time to check out every detail.

      Have a 2009 Hyundai and engine light came on. Ran my own test and 5 different codes came up, all of which I did not have the ability to repair. Took it to SW Automotive and was prepared for the worst but also heard great things about SWA so prayed for the best. Turns out carbon build up in the fuel lines caused the error codes, $89 and I was out of there!! I am always pessimistic about repair shops as they think they can easily trick me into thinking repairs are needed when they are not. Well SW Automotive now allows me to be optimistic about my future auto repairs.

  • Always use a detergent designed specifically for car washing. Don't use common dish washing detergent which is too strong and will remove the wax.
  • Always keep a good coat of wax or paint sealant on your car.
  • Make a habit of detailing your car. Detail your car regularly and inspect the finish.
  • Always use a good wax with a high Carnauba content.
  • You are much better off to wax your car more frequently than to try to apply a heavy coat of wax.
  • If you are involved in an accident don't make any public statements about who is at fault.
  • Keep a disposable camera with a flash in your glove box in the event you have an accident. Then take LOTS of pictures!
  • Be sure to remove sand and salt spray as soon as possible from your car to protect your car's finish.
  • Check tire inflation at least once a month. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency.
  • A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
  • For maximum fuel economy, stay below 60 mph.
  • Don't forget to check the tire pressure of your spare tire!
  • Buying a fuel with a higher octane than your car requires will not boost performance.
  • Unlike A/C in the summer, you can run the car's heater as much as you want in the winter without effecting gas mileage.
