This review is a long time coming, however, none the less worthy of a five star rating.  I had an on-going hesitation issue with my 1989 Dodge Ram B350 campervan, which had developed a hesitation following a repair from another facility in another state.  I drove for nearly 4,000, miles and stopped at 8 separate repair facilities across the United States, including two Dodge dealerships.  Not one could diagnose my hesitation problem.  I spent close to two-thousand dollars in repairs while unqualified mechanical specialists replaced parts hoping to resolve my issue.  Unfortunately none were successful.  After having spent many thousand dollars at this point, how could I turn back?  I was determined to have my hesitation issue diagnosed and resolved.  - Lori B.

I've taken my car into Nott's twice now. They're thorough, honest, efficient, and fairly priced. I recommend them to anyone needing any kind of car work. - Laura T.

Thank you Nott's for being a transparent mechanic.  I've been in Sarasota for over 10 years and after taking multiple vehicles to multiple shops around town, I finally found somebody who didn't try to take me for as much as they could.  Your honesty and integrity will go a long way for the future of you company.  Thank you for restoring my faith in mechanics! - Daniel S.

I love this place; they did great work on my car. They were upfront and honest with me. I will be taken my car back for sure. Great work and great people! - Cathy B. (5 star review on Yelp)

The best auto repair!!! They are quick, honest, and reasonable. My boyfriend had to have the motor rebuilt, and they said they would do it when no one else would. The time frame wasn't very long, and they did a great job!!!! Came with their warranty as well! I will definitely refer them to everyone!!! - Mary W. (5 star review on Yelp)

Love this shop! Friendly, honest, affordable, and available. We wouldn't take our yellow banana (Nissan Xterra) anywhere else! - Cat D. (5 star review on Yelp)

I drive from North Tampa to have Trey and his staff work on my family's vehicles, that should tell you all you need to know!  I TRUST that whatever they say I need, I truly need! - Mike M. (5 star review on Yelp)

It's hard to find any automotive repair shop that you can place your trust in nowadays. We've all reluctantly handed over our vehicles to strangers in hopes that we will receive the quality of service that we pay for, and sometimes we don't. However, since I've started going to Jen and Trey Nott, I've never been more relieved to get my car fixed. Family owned and operated, no strangers to anybody, and all around great service for reasonable pricing. - Austin D. (5 star review on Yelp)

The Best of the Best in Sarasota! - Michael G. (5 star review on Yelp)

Reliable, affordable, fast service, organized, and HONEST! - Kelley B. (5 star review on Yelp)

I highly recommend Nott's to everyone.  I made the mistake of going to the dealer for some repairs because I had a coupon for a free oil change.  After agreeing to some work, all of a sudden they "discovered" some other things that needed to be done which included a part they wanted $552 which I was able to procure for $300 less. (Both, BTW, were rebuilt.) The dealer also misdiagnosed several other issues and estimated exorbitant charges. I'm relatively new to Sarasota so I asked my real estate agent's associate for an alternative/a recommendation.  Lucky me!  She recommended Nott's Automotive.  Mr. Nott fixed all my car problems and I believe at a much fairer price.  I'll never take my car to anyplace but Nott's. - Denise O.

My husband has been taking his work trucks here for about 2 years, and they have always done a top-notch job. They are very friendly and fair priced. I would definitely recommend this family friendly business. Thanks Nott's Automotive for taking such great care of transportation and work vehicles. - Kelly R. (5 star review on Yelp)

There's not too many honest mechanic shops left, but this is definitely one of them.  Explained the issues very clearly with my truck, showed me old parts, and the price was very fair. - Marina S. (5 star review on Yelp)
