Car Repair Columbia SC

We Never Rush Our Services!

Prompt turnaround is always our goal, but we never rush our automotive services! We take the time required to ensure your vehicles are roadworthy and sound. We perform scheduled maintenance, emergency, and last minute repairs. Our technicians can quickly identify your service needs by running advanced computer diagnostics. Our shop is newly renovated, with the tools, technology, and quality parts required to deliver best-in-class service. All of our work is backed by a warranty of between 12,000 and 36,000 miles depending on the service and parts. This includes but is not limited to:

Factory Scheduled Maintenance Services

The best way to increase the lifespan of your vehicle and reduce costs in the long run is with a regular maintenance schedule. Most domestic & foreign car manufactures have a suggested maintenance schedule for each of their models. Our mechanics have the knowledge and skills to help you keep that schedule for just about any make and model.

Here at Mickey’s we perform oil changes daily. But unlike other drive-through services, we aren’t paid based on how many cars we can shoot through. We know every car is different.  We can properly change oil, check the health of the engine, and deliver results. That means that we take our time to not only change your oil but help determine the health of your system.

We don’t upsell, and we don’t suggest unnecessary work. If your engine is in good working order, we’ll change your oil and you’ll be on your way. If we notice some issues that we think need attention, then we’ll bring them to your attention with no pressure.

Transmissions are key parts of our engine. In fact, there isn’t an engine without a transmission, and having an under-performing or failed transmission is a huge deal. The mechanics at Mickey’s Auto Repair are experienced in automatic and manual transmissions, fluid flushes, clutch changes and transmission rebuilds.

Whether you need emergency transmission help, or just an expert who can help you schedule regular maintenance, we can help you out.

We are South Carolina’s brake experts. If you notice that your car isn’t stopping as well as it used to, or that your brake pedal is sticking, or that there is a grinding noise that only pops up when you brake, then it’s time to bring your car in.

We handle brake repairs for all component parts of your braking system, including the brakes, brake fluid system, rotors, and drums. We won’t just top off your fluid—we’ll provide the complete service you need to have healthy and properly-operating brakes.

Every car should have a regularly-scheduled tune up. But where do you go to get this service? How often do you have it done?

You go to a trusted mechanic that knows what they are doing, and what your car needs. A tune up can catch issues quite early, and correct problems that can lead to poor engine performance. You can get a complete picture of the health of your engine, exhaust system, electrical systems, and more.

Mickey’s Auto Repair is a veteran owned and operated automotive repair shop with decades of experience. We want to be your preferred mechanic and will provide you with quality services you can trust.
