This place is awesome! I recently had an oil leak and needed it taken care of asap. Anthony was able to get me scheduled in no time and was great to work with. Everyone was super friendly and helpful, the lobby was great, and they even have perks like providing transportation if you need it. Trustworthy and very professional!

I went to Carfix after being at the dealership who tried to sell me on a $400 "necessary repair". After getting a second opinion at Carfix, they told me this was not the case and gave me much more practical and cost effective next steps. They will not try to upsell you! I definitely will be going back.

Took my car in for my oil change, and they showed me that one of my tires was very dry rotten - explained what it was and why i needed two tires for my road trip that weekend. Came in the next morning and got my tires replaced! Very friendly and cost effective. I will be using them again!

2022 EDIT: My original review (below) was for this shop when it was White-Wall Auto Repair. I recently took a 2015 Chevy Equinox in for an oil change, engine and cabin air filters, and inspection. Carfix did the work quickly and at a super reasonable price. Really happy with their professionalism and quality of work. Will certainly trust them in the future.Reliable, fast, and trustworthy. Great auto repair shop.

I brought my car into Carfix because it was making a noise it should not be making and I had a long trip planned. I took it into Mike, Jimmy and the team on Hillsborough St. Within minutes, they had diagnosed the problem as the water pump. I scheduled an appointment to bring it back in and get the water pump replaced. The day I brought it in, they gave me a loaner car so I could continue doing business for the day. Now my car is fixed, the noise is gone and I will have no issues for my long road trip. thank you CarFix!

Jimmy and Richard did an amazing job helping me make a decision about buying a used car. This is the first time I've ever done that, all of my previous cars had been hand-me-downs so I was very nervous, but he and his team were incredibly thorough and informative. They were honest about what they found and what it would take, and ultimately I didn't end up buying that car so they saved me $4500! I would highly recommend you use them if you're considering buying a used car OR to help you keep your current car on the road. Both Raleigh locations I have been to, the staff doesn't talk down to you or go over your head, and it's obvious they're genuinely interested in helping you, keeping you safe, and saving you money.

I had my brake calipers replaced here a few weeks back. Excellent service, reasonable pricing, and most importantly, the problem was resolved and my car is fully functional again. What more can you ask for from a mechanic!

Jimmy and his team were very helpful and professional. I had taken my truck to several mechanics, none of them could solve the problem I was having with my starter. Jimmy and the guys at Carfix were able to solve it in a timely manor

My car has had the check engine light on for a year. I told my last mechanic that I smelled gas, but he ignored me. I brought my car to Carfix, and I had an answer and a solution in a day! Professional service, great staff, quality work! Thank you all very much!

Jimmy at Carfix is without doubt the best at helping me manage the repair and maintenance of my 5 vehicles. I know that I will have honest straight-talk conversations with Jimmy about everything I need now and what I will need later when it comes to keeping my 5 Toyotas running. In fact, I followed Jimmy when he moved from the Wake Forest Road location to open up the new Carfix on Hillsborough Street. The mechanics are outstanding as well and I cannot thank everyone enough for their attention to my vehicles and their quality work.

These guys are golden. They came through for me not once but TWICE when I needed help. The prices are reasonable with a FIVE year parts warranty. Also, they email 18 point service report with recommendations and pictures. It's very helpful. A+++

Carfix has ALWAYS taken care of my vehicles. They’ve had my business for 7+ years now and multiple vehicles. I’ve followed Jimmy from their monstrous 40/42 location to the Wake Forest Road locale and now this Hillsborough Street location. He’s always looked out for me and I won’t take my vehicles elsewhere thanks to him and his crew. I’m in the repair industry myself and these folks have always been impressive by my standards. This past visit I was having a logistics issue and Jimmy was working with me on his day off to make sure it was stress free when it came time to have my car serviced. You can’t go wrong trusting these folks to service whatever needs your vehicle has.

I worked with Jimmy to get my Tahoe serviced. He was incredibly helpful. He had a technician do a multipoint inspection in addition to the tire rotation and oil change I went there for. I appreciate Jimmy's thoroughness and care with my vehicle. The service quick and they did everything I asked them to do. I am happy and will be taking my vehicle to Jimmy in the future.

The team at Carfix is fantastic!! As a female, I was always cautious about going to a mechanic as I’ve been ripped off in the past. I’ve never once had this concern with carfix. They are always honest about work needs to be done, what can wait, and what to look out for in the future. Can’t say enough good things about the Carfix team!!

Had a laundry list of things to be done to my car coming out of the pandemic and driving more - really expected a scary price for the A/C diagnostics and looking at the ABS brakes - but walked out of there with everything all fixed up for not a big price tag. Roger there talked me through everything and was kind to spend an extra minute talking. Not much for reviewing things online but was a nice surprise all around today.

White Wall is one of the best repair shops in Raleigh. Been here longer before I was born! Jimmy is an amazing owner, who is very courteous and honest. He’s a straight shooter and would let you know how it is. Roger who also works there is a real professional who knows exactly what he’s doing. They provide quick, professional and efficient service without compromising on quality. Their work speaks for itself and their time here can attest to that. They are a little on the higher price side but you definitely get what you pay for.Highly recommend!

Have taken 3 different vehicles here consistently for over 11 years now. One needed all new gas lines, timely repair and fair price. One needed new timing belt and water pump, and another time needed a radiator crack repair. Both times I paid under $800 for parts + labor AND never had problems after that. Have been taking my newest vehicle for oil changes, tires and inspections and they NEVER try to upsell me. I never feel swindled or talked down to. Will continue to take my vehicles here for years to come.

I originally stopped by just to get my tired aired up. I recently had back surgery and wasn't able to do it myself. The gentleman at the counter went outside, topped off all 4 tires for me, and wouldn't let me pay. A couple of days later, I brought my car in to have the radiator replaced and the back windows fixed. The back windows were rolling down, but wouldn't roll back up. I'd already had a few other places look at this issue without getting it resolved. They fixed everything and had it back to me in less than 24 hours. Very polite, very professional, and very competent. Highly recommend.

Excellent, honest, thorough service, quick turnaround, always clear in describing options for repair or replacement, with very reasonable prices that are carefully explained. I've been using White-Wall for over 15 years (my last place of work has been using them happily for over 30) and recommend this shop highly as one of the fairest and most knowledgeable I've ever encountered.

Been a regular customer at Whitewall for YEARS. I have owned two Honda's, both at least 20 years old. The mechanics at Whitewall made it possible to keep these classics on the road, safely and affordably, for decades longer than most people drive their cars, saving me tens of thousands of dollars. They are honest and skilled. A+++++

Late last Friday afternoon I received excellent and same-day service on my wheel bearing and front brake replacement for my 2010 Honda Pilot, and so far so good. Thanks to Geoff H. (now in Tallahassee) for recommending Jimmy and White Wall in Raleigh.Update on 09 July 2019So far so good. I've been really pleased with how well my car drove after the hub bearing and front brake replacement from last month (thanks to Elvis), and decided to give White-wall the opportunity to replace my timing belt, drive and serpintine belts and water pump that were all long overdue on my maintenance schedule. Roger showed me the old timing belt that I put 140K on and all old (former) parts he replaced while noting that I should not try to go 35K miles over the suggested change out on the timing belt as my old one was cracked and could have gone out at any time. Roger put my mind at ease by showing me the old parts without me asking to see the old parts. I should be good to go for another 70K to 105K on this timing belt though I won't try to go 140K on the timing belt again.Good and honest and hardworking gentlemen work here. So far so good on all my repairs at White-wall Auto. As far as pricing, Roger quoted me what the dealer would have charged though the dealer only changes the timing belt and water pump on this particular service. Roger changed both of those and also the serpintine drive belts and gave the car a synthetic oil change----all for the same price as the dealer wanted to just change the timing belt and water pump.

Excellent experience. 2002 Honda Civic needing hydraulics for clutch to be replaced. Dropped the car there Monday morning, with no prior arrangements or anything. They confirmed diagnosis and fixed it by Monday evening. Extremely reasonable rates for parts, labor, and duration of work. Will definitely return. Thanks!

I dropped my truck not knowing what was the problem. With in 24 hours (during the busy session for them) they figured out exactly what was wrong with it. They said they were short handed but they had my truck done in 3 days. I thought that was quick for the bit of work needed for my truck. I’d highly recommend taking your vehicles here. When I called to check in to see the status of my truck they all ways pick up, very professional and super nice. Both mechanics I spoke with are very knowledgeable about how they explained what was wrong what they did and what they did to fix the problems.

These are the most honest and hard working mechanics. Instead of just buying the most expensive part to fix my car, they are smart enough to engineer their own part and saved me money, but more than that, they do great work and are always very thorough.

This is literally the ONLY mechanic I will go to. I've been screwed over a LOT over the years by crappy, dishonest mechanics.... but not at Whitewall!! Nathan and his team are honest, fair, and get the job done right, fast, every time. They've saved my butt a couple times now by doing good work and the lowest price possible. Whitewall has been my go-to car repair shop for years, and will remain such as long as they are open. Can't recommend them enough!!

Excellent shop. They have provided my basic services for several years, always done the same day I bring the vehicle to them.For one larger job, on a vehicle which I have since gotten rid of, they quoted me a price but recommended I not do the repairs. Basically, putting the money into the car would not have been worth it to me, in their opinion. That is money that they lost out on because their professional ethics came first. As a result, they will have all of my business and I will recommend them to anyone who asks for a shop.Colin

I have to say the workers there is very ethical and professional. Just had my Versa checked there which turned out no problem with my car, and they even didn't charge for it. BTW, they also provide NC State inspection.

These guys are as good as it gets. Honest and ethical and they do great work at reasonable prices. I have had 2 experiences where we got a quote on my wife's Lexus from other places and White-Wall was substantially less and I felt much better about them doing the work. They are trustworthy. Anybody that has issues with this business needs to turn the mirror back at themselves and ask if you are a good communicator or typically feel like you pay too much when you get work done on your car, at the dentist or anything that isn't an expense you are comfortable paying with more regularity. I have been driving and keeping cars maintained since 1984 - as I said, it doesn't get any better than this and you should feel great that we are fortunate to have such a high integrity, fair shop in Raleigh.

We used to live in Raleigh and wouldn't take our cars anywhere but White Wall. They are very professional and friendly. They will NEVER charge you for more work than in necessary. Now we live in Greenville, but if it's not an emergency, we still drive into Raleigh to take our car to White Wall because they treat us so well
