Smiling customer thumbs up

Everything that needed to be done was done with no expensive surprises!

I now have an exhaust that does exactly what an exhaust should do... completely remove the engine waste, and not leak in the process!

I also had installed a tow bar on our car that used to rattle when the old exhaust would move under pressure over time... and that noise no longer exists!!!

My case may have been custom, and I am a hard man to please, but the work was done professionally for the cost of just one (and there are many) of the parts that would be needed from our car parts catalog!

Every case is different but Cliff's worked for us, I'm almost positive they will for you too!

I'm a traveler and look to Yelp when I need my truck worked on. I liked what others had to say about this place. Turned out I too am extremely satisfied with the repairs, cost and experience with these guys. Even made a second appointment for some aftermarket parts I ordered to be installed. First rate service again. If I lived here I would continue to have my truck serviced here.

Great job team Cliff!

This is the only shop in town I trust with my auto repairs. They are honest folks at cliffs. Been dealing with them for 5+ years on a regular basis and have ZERO issues on any work they have done. Rates are great also! Go with the best in the business, see cliffs.

First time there and the staff were are friendly and helpful. After getting an appointment for two tires, they managed to find me two more badly needed tires and had me back on the road in less than an hour.

Such a great experience, I did some shotty "custom" myself and needed it welded together to fix the leaks. They worked with me and got me in the shop first thing in the morning and called me and said it was done at 10 AM. I forgot my lunch on top of my car and they brought it out of the sun and kept it cool in the office for me. That says alot about there customer service, the exhaust was not fixed and there was no more leaks and had beautiful welds. The rate to have this done was fair and for this reason I will keep coming back as several shops in town wouldn't touch my car because it was "Modified". The guys a Cliffs were more than happy to work on my car for me and didn't quote me an arm and a leg to do something so simple. If you need exhaust work done or other automotive C.A.R.E. Call Cliff's Automotive Repair & Exhaust!!!!

Garth & Brian took great care with my high end Corvette & BMW rims. Their cautious care is at Artisan level. I am now a customer for life.

We travel for a living and have interacted with many mechanics all over the country. We were simply blown away by the service and integrity of this shop. If ever we need repairs when we're back in TC, we will look no further. Thanks Guys!

I took my 2001 Prizim in to get some parts installed. I was happily surprised to get a call from them saying it would be less than they had originally told me.

The entire staff is happy and helpful. Quick and efficient. I highly recommend Cliffs Automotive Repair and Exhaust for your automotive maintenance needs.

Dave and his crew have treated me so good over years! The custom dual exhaust jobs on 5 of my trucks have never disappointed me or the people that love the sound. I highly recommend these guys!

Terrific service and friendly guys, it sucks that they would get negative reviews from trash who have never even set foot in their shop simply because one of their friends who did NOT take the professional techs advice (and obviously does not posses the knowledge or skill to work on her own vehicle) told them to do it.

We have personally had 3 or 4 vehicles into cliff's and never once had a negative experience, the guys have gone above and beyond just to make sure we had our vehicle back on the same day that they took it in; customer service doesn't get any better than that in my opinion. The negative reviews and 1 star comments on their page are simply being left by degenerates who have never been to, and are harassing this shop simply because of this ignorant female who didn't want to take the advice of technicians who have been doing and excelling at their work longer than the harasser herself has been alive. 5/5 will be back to Cliff's auto again.

Very happy with the dual exhaust on my '61 Cadillac. After attempting to do it ourselves 3 times without the proper tools, Cliffs cleaned up our mess and did a beautiful job fabricating the dual exhaust around the X-frame. Sounds great, looks great!


— Facebook User Review

I've been here probably 6 times before for different things, each time I was very satisfied. I remember the guy getting me in on the same day I called to fix a small section of exhaust. Probably 20 minutes and less than $30 later it was flawless. I've been to ACE welding quite a bit too and I've found that Cliffs staff is more friendly and quicker, plus a bit cheaper as well. Let's keep the good reviews flowing in, some people are terrible and we all know that.

Ever worked in... Any job with people at all.

The customer is not always right, actually rarely so, otherwise why go to a professional??? Keep up the good work Cliffs!!!

Cliff's was recommended to me a few months ago. I wish I had know about them sooner. By far the most professional, knowledgeable, honest car repair shop in town. Would highly recommend to anyone.

The guys at Cliff's always do a fantastic job at a fraction of what most shops charge. Anything from a simple patch job on an exhaust to a full, custom, one-off exhaust and other mechanic work. Definitely 5 stars. Keep doing what you do best fellas.

We have been coming to Cliff’s for 5+ years and I was disappointed to see anyone would give them anything less than a 5 star review. But, that happens sometimes when you get a customer looking to cut corners or wanting something for nothing. It doesn’t matter where you go to have your car worked on, the odds are likely, especially if you haven’t kept up maintenance on your vehicle, that you’re going to hear some things you don’t like. However, not every garage will be honest about what needs to be done and what can wait.

Husband does most of our vehicle repairs & maintenance. There are few things he can’t do, doesn’t have the tools to do, or it’s just too darn cold outside. Five years or so ago, we needed to find a garage. Started asking around for recommendations. TWO different people highly recommended Cliff’s. We made an appointment, it was reasonable, the people were wonderful, it was fixed, we left… and started referring family there (niece, mom-in-law, and the kid).

We were most blown away by Cliff’s integrity a couple years ago when my sweet mom-in-law took her car in with a laundry list of things needing done. She was given a ballpark quote for $1k or so in repairs over the phone, which she had saved up to have done. Dropped the car off, it went up on the hoist, and Cliff’s called back immediately to inform her that her frame was rusting out. They recommended that she not put money into it.

Another kind of garage would have looked the other way and taken her money. We already liked Cliff’s, but that told us A LOT about how they do business!!!

We were back in last week with a new-to-us car we bought knowing it would need work. Besides some maintenance, there were issues with the hood hinges & latch and the interior door handle. Literally, plated the car and dropped it off for a thorough inspection. Cliff’s got us a quote. After digging in to the work, they determined there were parts they didn’t need to order after all. First time – ever – I’ve seen the final cost be less than the quote. Again, IF Cliff’s were “another” kind of garage, they could have just charged us parts & labor and not done the work.

So, to sum up… Cliff’s is the kind of garage that we trusted sending mom, a kid, and a niece to, to have repairs done. It’s a family business, clearly built on integrity, that’s been around for 2-3 generations and they provide top notch service.

If you’re reading through reviews trying to figure out if Cliff’s is the place to go, keep in mind they have no need to advertise to lure folks in.... or do that “hard sell” to get people to have work done. (They WILL tell you if something can wait.) Their customers come from word-of-mouth. 😊

(We like that Accurate Tire Guy too that's in-house.)

Thank you!!

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Value

We have used Cliffs multiple times for both of my Sons cars while they are attending college in Traverse City. It’s always hard dealing with car repairs when you’re not with the car needing the repair and a great distance away. Cliffs staff and mechanics have made it so easy. They are professional and do honest work at reasonable prices. We get multiple quotes each time and Cliffs is always the best price as well as do fast work. Dealing with Destinee and Tim on the phone is always easy. They are both always professional and super friendly. I highly recommend them.

Resonator in front of catalytic converter was leaking, Cliff’s was able to do a personalized repair and saved me hundreds of dollars over other local repair places.

When we were on our way to Great Wolf Lodge (a 3 hr drive) our exhaust pipe rusted thru and broke a lot sooner than we expected. It was very loud and made an obnoxious rattle. We decided to see if we could get it fixed so we wouldn't have to listen to that on our way home. We contact Cliff's and they got us in right away, fixed the problem and on the road with in two hours from us calling them. It was awesome and all was fixed very reasonably as well. Enjoying a quiet ride home now.
