I have taken my cars & each of our family cars to ONLY 2 shops in Florida since moving down for The Navy & mom in 1995. I made the decision to move down, transfer with the Navy for my twilight tour & stay to work at the DAYTONA INTL Speedway, now for over 22 years.
I can't praise Chris enough for weathering an ugly hurricane in 2016 & all the insurance woes that came with it. My car is in his hands & I have never felt safer.
Glowing reviews over the years to both Angies List & my Naval Reserve service purveyors have put A1 Expert Auto on EVERYONE's radar for the excellent service, pricing, honest work & rework if your vehicle proves troublesome as mine has been in her 10th year, completely out of the blue.
Whatever car I decide to buy in 2017, will totally be predicated that my current now 11th model year Sapphire Dragonfly goes to my significant & our soon to be 17yr old will get the 20 year old Mercury police Cruiser AFTER Chris gives it a thorough once over.
Awesome service! Chris was very honest and helpful and got me back on the road in no time. Thank you so much. -Tarie B
This place is the best. I won't go anywhere else. Chris is very personable, friend and knowledgeable. Very honest about what is going on. -Gretchen W
This is the best auto repair shop in Daytona Beach. Honest and best price around. You can trust that the work will be done right. Chris is the best. -Les N
Hard to find an honest auto shop. A-1 Expert Auto is the best in town. I've been a regular customer for many years and will not go anywhere else. - 5 Stars All Around
I didn't get the man's name but he's apparently a mechanic here and today he was a life saver. My car wouldn't start in Wal-Mart and he told me exactly what was wrong and helped me start it. He was so nice to a total stranger. Please thank him again for me. One day I'll stop and get his name. He deserves something for being so gracious. I don't have a ton of money but if he likes cookies I sure can bake.
I've taken both of my vehicles to Chris and his team for about five years. I have not once been disappointed or even the least bit concerned with the possibility of dishonest service. Chris is one of those rarities in the field and he expects nothing less from his team of mechanics. Thanks for an outstanding five years of dedicated service y'all! - 5 Star Review, Facebook
Been my GO TO place over 20 years and on my 2nd car, ever since it was located in Holly Hill on Nova. Excellent service, will accept your bought correct parts & just charge you service time to repair/ replace or do basic maintenance. Definitely worthwhile as they will go over th. Vehicle, if its an unknown problem or a repair light from the computer. Never does work without calling, explaining problem & getting a verbal from you first. You'll get an education in cars if you want one, leave time to discuss what was wrong & how to prevent or slow down the ineviable with owner Chris or his right hand man at the desk. Quick efficient, affordable.
5.0 star rating. I was in Florida on a 2 week vacation from Indiana and needed a lighter repair. I bought a lighter at the parts store & called a couple places about installing it & repairing the connection on the wire harness. The first place quoted me $60. I called A-1 Expert Auto Repair on my 2nd call. I was quoted a very reasonable amount for the repair & install. Easy to find for an out of towner and the work was finished in under an hour. At the quoted price. Locally owned. I work in a small business and have found longevity in business is tied to doing things the right way. I highly recommend this shop.
I want to thank our customers for taking the time to give us such great reviews on facebook. I appreciate the 5 Star Reviews from:
Bill Holland III, Alice Taylor, Jada Nicholson, April Rose Baird, Dauvy Khieu Goodrich, and Kim Ford-Wilson. - Chris Fletcher, Owner

I'm pretty untrusting of auto mechanics, everyone knows why. The shady places that find all kinds of extra things you "need", extra costs, and problems after you leave. The guys here are straight-up and good guys. Great prices, you won't be overcharged. Honest about the repairs you need now, if money is a problem. I even had a little issue with the work I had done and they took care of it a week later, standing behind their work.
I'll definitely take my car back here again for future work.
