Bob and Matt Clarke are honest, hard working, and accommodating mechanics. I take all my vehicles to them because I know it'll be done the right way, in a timely fashion and for a great price. Bob and Matt are always willing to offer their professional opinion on your vehicle without pushing an up sell. Whenever they present their solution to a problem it is always presented in a way that gives you all the facts. You'll know why it needs to be done, if it needs to be done now, and how it can be done cheapest without affecting the integrity of the vehicle or the quality of the parts. Bob and Matt are budget conscious, honest individuals that treat their customers as people and not bags of money.

Extremely High Prices. My car overheated. I called Clarke's cuz it was close to where I broken down, and his reviews were good. He said there's no charge to look at the car. I was surprised to hear that...unusual for these days! Got the car towed over and it was as the tow truck is dropping the car that Bob Clarke tells me, "there's no charge to look at the car...unless we have to hook it up to a computer." What car these days don't you have to use a computer for diagnosis?! Fortunately for me the tow truck driver tipped me off that Clarke's is known for high prices. Next day he calls with diagnosis. It's $501 for a heater control valve for my '05 Prius. I called around...dealer was same price. I found Tampa Hybrids...price was $250...a little less than half! Btw...I had to pay $94.60 diagnosis fee to Clarke's. Turned out, when Tampa hybrids scanned it with the computer, there was another part out also...the coolant pump. Parts and labor for BOTH came to $420! If I had done the work at Clarke's it would have been $501...the problem still wouldn't have been fixed, and it would have been another $500 for the pump, another trip over there, and being w/o my car again! It's all good tho'....now I've found a really good mechanic that's fairly priced. Praise God.

After paying a high diagnostic fee and getting what I felt was a excessive quote on a major repair from a dealership I decided to research alternative service outlets / costs on the Net. During a two day search one name kept coming up in the form of positive reviews from various sources (Google Search, Yelp, Angie’s List) and that was Clarke Automotive Service. The service there matched the reviews in terms of honesty, reliability and professionalism (All technicians are ASE Certified). On top of that Tom and Matt Clarke personally guided me through the logistics of this major repair in terms of alternative transportation, potential service problems, timelines and costs. Service was performed as stated and needless to say I will have all future service performed at Clarke Automotive; simply the best auto service I’ve found during ten years of living in the Bay Area

I just received my car from Mr. Clark's business, and he had it for two days since my problem was very extensive. I have found that the way Mr. Clark does business is in of the highest standards. I found him to be a very fair, proficient person while getting the highest quality of work done. I have dealt with many different businesses, and they all have the same traits. They have no leadership and very customer service this is why so many businesses have the problems that they do have. I have a Masters Degree in Business Administration so I can say these things from experience. Yesterday when I was in his waiting room, a woman and her son came in and the first words that came out of her mouth is Mr. Clark any good. She said no matter what kind of service that is available to customers, they are not of the highest quality. I told her there is no one around that can even cast a shadow to him. I also told her that there is no amount of money that could make me go somewhere else. My biggest complaint with most business's is that of extremely poor management, and very poor customer services. I have yet to find anyone who can even come close to the way Mr. Clark does his business, and I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for someone who provides excellent service such what he provides. Any new person who uses Mr. Clark will walk away with the highest regards for what he stands for and his values.

I must say that Bob Clarke is an honest person that gave me a thorough assessment on my vehicle. He diagnosed additional problems but did not push me to perform the work instantly. He gave a me a time frame as to when the work should be performed and a price to accompany the future work. If you want an honest, family-owned shop with personal attention, but sure to get your car work performed by Clarke Automotive Systems at 131 Central Drive in Brandon, FL.

Continuously training and learning about the newest information on your vehicles is what we do at Clarke Automotive . We accumulated 13 hours worth of training this week. This weekend we attended Bosch's training on passenger diesel vehicles. These newer diesels are cleaner running & more fuel efficient than ever! #VW #TDI
