Michael’s took amazing care of my 1960 TR3. I love my car and he made sure that I knew what was going on throughout the whole process. He gave me a straightforward quote and stuck to it, even when he had to do a little extra work. Even though it’s a 40 minute drive, I’ll never take my car anywhere else.

Honest, professional, our family have been bringing our vehicles to Michaels for more than 20 years, always pleased with the outcome and the service is excellent

Honest and professional through and through! My father used to take his Jags here and they even took in my Fiero from time time. No games, no guessing – just straight up service with a smile. Highly recommend!

What a great shop! Michael and his sons are all knowledgeable, honest, professional and truly care about you and your vehicle. I have been here twice now and will always take my family’s vehicles here and would recommend it to all of my friends.

More than pleased with every visit I have had with this company. They always get me right in and pull me in so I can see exactly what the issues are and are 100% honest with what needs to be urgently taken care to insure my car will stay on the road. I personally wouldn’t take my car anywhere else. Reliable work, trust worthy, and all around a homey place to get your car taken care of the right way the first time.

I brought my Citroen 2CV to Michael and his team, and I couldn’t have wished for a better service!

I’ve been taking my 2009 Toyota Prius for several years now and I just cannot say enough about how friendly, knowledgeable, and caring Michael, Tom, and Anthony are!! They always take such good care of my car and so timely with repairs to get me back on the road! These guys are really the guys you can TRUST!

Michael and sons have been working on my 1989 Lincoln Town Car for over 10 years. They have also serviced my newer model Toyota’s. To sum them up in a nutshell, they are very caring, honest, knowledgeable, professional, thorough, trustworthy and upfront. They are the gold standard for mechanics in my book. Michael and sons is by far one of the very best auto repair shops in the Daytona Beach, FL area. Please give them a chance to earn your business. You won’t regret it!

My son has an older Jaguar that was overheating so we took it to a local repair shop that said the entire motor needed replaced at an estimate of $8000. We were resigned to just selling the beautiful car as a shell to someone who would want to replace the engine. Several friends with mechanical know-how told us the vehicle did not exhibit signs of a blown engine so we took it to Michael’s auto repair for a second opinion. They performed diagnostics and called with a detailed explanation, with the bottom line being that the module that regulated the cooling fans was not working and the total repair costs would be less than $500, We were ecstatic as that increased the sale price by several thousand dollars! We were very impressed when we picked the vehicle up, as Michael took the time to explain everything they did and presented the defective part with the detailed invoice. It was very refreshing to find a family owned business that has been in the same location for 35 years – that in itself instills trust. We were very satisfied with this business and this will now be our only Auto Repair for all our vehicles.

I give Michael my highest recommendation without reservation! I have been a customer for over a year, and my older car has needed much TLC. Having needed another recent repair, there aren’t adequate words to express my gratitude to Michael for his true concern about my situation, and the care he takes in diagnosing and fixing the problem. I’ve never known a mechanic so meticulous, who goes to such great lengths to ensure I understand the problem, who is also extremely sensitive to my need to have my car back as soon as possible, and who also keeps costs at a minimum *without* compromising quality and safety, his foremost concern. I’ve owned cars for decades, and have had experience with many mechanics over time, and have never encountered one with such integrity, honesty, and quality of service. You will never have to worry about entrusting your car to Michael and his excellent team.

Thank you SO MUCH for being so fantastic and understanding today. I was really nervous being new to the area, and I’m so thankful that I did my research and came across such a wonderful family run business.
Michael made me feel at ease from the second I spoke to him on the phone and even more so when I came into the shop. He is very kind and honest, and puts his best foot forward with customers. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Michael is without question the best mechanic I have ever known! I’ve worked with him on my cars for 23 years and I can honestly say I would trust him with the care of my own son. He is so thorough, he’s like a crime scene investigator with a car. I’ve also had the pleasure of watching his two sons, Thomas and Anthony grow up to become just as thorough as he is in the shop, and it’s comforting to know that when Michael decides to retire, the shop will be in very capable hands. I’m very blessed to have not only a great technician to bring my car to, but also someone who has come to be a great friend over the years. Thanks Michael!!!

I just picked up my Mini Cooper. I was so impressed with my entire experience. From the first phone call Micheal was more like a friend I was discussing my problem with than a stranger. He took the time to explain everything that was wrong with my car as well as what it would take to fix it. My estimate was exactly what I ended up paying. I truly believe my car couldn’t have been in better hands. They went over and above to get me my car before the start of the fourth of July weekend. If you don’t bring your car to Michael and his sons you are settling for second best.

Paris Pena

This is one of the safest places around period. You can trust not only that the job will get done to your satisfaction but that you won’t be sold on unnecessary repairs. Their bedside manners, patience educating clients and old fashioned care professional service will make an impression on you. This is a great find worth spreading the word to pay it forward. Thank you Michael Zaharios for referring me to this auto repair shop safe heaven!

Shirley Klein

I am a return customer after trying at least (3) other mechanics who are located closer to where I live. My vehicle was neglected when I brought it in to British American. Michael diagnosed and explained everything that was wrong and fixed all the problems for a very reasonable price. Thanks for finding the leak in my AC unit. I would not want to be without it this time of year! I highly recommend this auto repair shop!

Cindy Vice

I absolutely can not say enough good things about Mike and his team. For 8 years now, he has taken care of my cars as well as my friends. He is the absolute best there is!!

Susan Winkler

Michael and his son’s are always willing to go the extra mile to make sure everything is done properly. I appreciate the time he takes to explain things so I feel comfortable. As a woman that is very important to me. They have been servicing my vehicles for years now and I highly recommend all of my friends to them.

I’ll tell you not just anybody works on my mustang , Michael came fully recommended by Daytona Carburetor in Daytona Beach , a classic car restoration company . They told me he was totally capable of a carb. Rebuild for my high performance mustang . After his work on the carb. My car runs as it should . Michael deserves this review for his professional work and knowledge of this type of application , I highly recommend his shop for work done correctly in a friendly atmosphere . Thanks again Michael ! Rick Book

My parents have come to see Michael and his sons since 1995! They treat everyone like family. They take the time to really share what is going on with you car and always stand behind their work. If I lived here they would be my go to !!

Mary Wagner

Walked in WORRIED, walked out SMILING!
That’s the way it happened at Michael’s Repair Shop! Excellent customer reviews led me to Michael’s when the AC blew in my ’01 VOLVO C70! New in town, husband out of state AND my home AC went out the day before!!! Michael immediately assured me his team would everything in their power to fix my car. His sons Anthony & Thomas were personable, professional & competent technicians who worked on my car for 6 solid hours till all that was a must was repaired. Mike explained EVERYTHING in an easily understandable manner & showed me exact costs with no BS! He also documented things I would need done in the near future but his goal was to get me on my way with freezing AC in weather that had a heat index of 105! In this day & age, it is nearly impossible to find a family owned, honest, personable, technically proficient, reasonably priced Foreign & Domestic Automotive Repair Shop. This is exactly what I experienced at Michael’s in Daytona Beach, FL. You cannot put a price tag on peace of mind, when it comes to your automobile. That is, unless you have your car serviced & repaired by Michael, Anthony & Thomas Zaharios! God Bless, Mary Wagner

Rebuilt and tuned my carb without even looking at the car.
Bolted it on and she’s never ran better. And a 425 nailhead is not the easiest motor to get tuned right first try.

Jeff Friedman

While I haven’t yet needed their services I have been to the shop and observed them at work and had conversations with Michael and two of his sons. Their passion for their profession and very apparant honesty is refreshing and reassuring that my car would be in good hands.

Michael Zaharios III

Hands down, Michael, Tom and Anthony run the best auto repair shop in Daytona Beach and all of Volusia County.

Kayla Lake Faircloth
