I love 17th street Exxon. Super nice & knowledgeable people there. They are the ones to call about car issues. Absolutely the best car repair at the oceanfront in Va. Beach IMHO. Highly Recommended.

17th St. Auto is truly the best repair shop you can go to. They are fast, honest (which is super important for us females as I feel like auto places are always trying to pull one over on us) and they won't try to tell you something needs replaced just to squeeze extra money from you. Don't take your vehicle anywhere else.

Really nice people! Fixed my tire and had me on my way. Called the next day to make sure I was satisfied. I highly recommend them especially in an emergency!

I like taking my Volvo to 17th Street Automotive for the following reasons: I get to know the mechanic, Joel, who works on the car. He always errs on the cautious side of recommending repairs. A recent example: The car's system gave me an alarm alert of a major malfunction. He reset the electronics and the problem went away, although he did caution that it might come back in which case he would do further diagnostics. I was charged only $20 dollars. The car ran well for four more weeks and then, just as he had indicated, the problem recurred. Upon further diagnostics it turned out to be a fuel sensor, which cost a little over $300. The other reason I like taking my car there is that I can usually receive service either the same day or the next. No waiting for several weeks like at the dealership. All the technicians are highly competent and they are all friendly and courteous. :)

Quickly took care of my inspection!

If you go here, ask for Joel. He was the most helpful and nicest auto guy I've ever dealt with. I would recommend this place 100%.

These guys are my heroes! We had just checked out of our hotel, headed for home, when our emergency brake light would not come off. It kept making a constant ding ding ding noise. I knew if we had to drive 3+ hours with this noise, my husband and I would be crazy. My husband gave them a call and explained the situation and they said to bring the car right over. They took great care of us and fixed the problem. Great customer service and nice guys too!

Our active duty son’s car had been out of inspection for several months. Not wanting to ask for help, he didn’t call home to let anyone know there were problems with the vehicle, so it sat without being driven. We found out during a spur-of-the-moment visit about the issue. There were dash lights on and multiple noises and it couldn’t pass inspection if it had to. My husband went over the problems and had O’Reilley’s diagnose the computer codes, but didn’t have the tools or time to make as many repairs as were required. We found 17th Street Automotive online, and after reading numerous glowing reviews about their honesty, called for an appointment. We explained our situation, that we were visiting from out-of-state, and that we weren’t even sure our son’s car was worth fixing, but asked for an estimate of repairs necessary to pass VA inspection. We also inquired about the scope of work able to be performed at the shop, finding the site’s services to be comprehensive. My husband had a good idea what was wrong with the car before calling, which made the final list of problems easy to accept. We would vouch for their honesty. Joel at 17th Street was courteous and flexible. He told us he would estimate repairs and we could work out payment if we decided to proceed with the work (the only downside to 17th Street is they can’t or won’t take credit card payments over the phone). Our son dropped off his car and within a couple of days we had an estimate of approximately $1600.00: oil change, spark plug change, cleaning of carbon deposits, wheel bearings, MAP sensor, inspection, and rear rotors and pads. The work was completed in a timely fashion for slightly less money than we were quoted. My son says the car now runs like a champ. No noises and no lights. I mailed a cashier’s check to the shop and when they received it, my son was able to pick up his car. I can’t thank 17th Street Automotive enough for taking a leap of faith. Military families are separated by miles and we, as military parents, do the best we can under the circumstances. Kudos to Joel and crew for helping take care of our sailor.
