Let me start by saying I'm a mechanic. I went to Bristol and Dealt with Alex and Peter. They were both great as before i opened the car doors, I wanted to... read more
I'm a Mechanic and I'm one to scrutinize the technical aspects of a car I'm about to buy. These guys Alex, Mark, and Peter definitely have nothing to hide. And that's clear from the beginning that they told me the whole story on the car, I confirmed that and more and we were on the same page. It's nice to deal with Honest Professionals. Will buy again from these reputable guys!
So I decided to search for a mid-sized or compact SUV and went to several local dealerships, in addition to a few craigslist ads. Nothing within a fair price range was present at the dealerships and the craigslist cars posted always had something to fix. I got lucky and found a Honda CR-V that looked well maintained. Met with Mark and Alex and had no problems throughout the entire process. The vehicle was raised on a lift and checked out the underbody for issues just for peace of mind. Reviewed the Carfax and received new tires at the end. By far the most honest guys I’ve dealt with looking for cars!
I've heard great things about Bristol auto center as a repair shop. The word of mouth recommendations around town are, "they are an honest repair shop and do great work." I was in need of an inexpensive, reliable second vehicle as a commuter for my job. I walked into the shop, explained what I was looking for and they worked with me to stay under my budget and still give me a quality vehicle. Alex was very helpful, and held the car without a deposit while I got things together on my end. I'm really impressed with the condition of the vehicle for the price and service provided. Thank you Bristol Auto Center!
Quality and Service
I want to take a moment to acknowledge you for your outstanding commitment to customer service. I recently purchased a 2004 Toyota 4 Runner for my step son. We were very impressed with the care and commitment to customer service your dealership showed. You made repairs and serviced the vehicle to ensure it was safe and reliable before we took delivery. It is nice to see good old fashion ethics (rare now a days) The sales and shop areas are clean, orderly and neat. Again another sign of the quality your dealership is committed to. We visited over 20 dealers throughout CT. Your dealership stands out from the rest. I know it was not a big sale but we were treated like it was. Thanks and keep up the great work. I would recommend you to all who are looking at used vehicles. Sincerely Walter (Bud) Seely
best auto body place around

If you are looking for a dealer that you can trust, and has top quality cars and service. This is the place for you. I am in Michigan and had been looking for a excellent condition Suburban to replace the one I currently drive.After speaking on the phone with Mark several times, he is very honest and knowledgeable .I was confident that this was the Suburban I was looking for.They even picked me up at the airport allowing me a very long test drive.The vehicle was everything they had presented it to be.I put 1500 mi on the car driving it back to Michigan in less than a week. I am as pleased now as I was at the dealer.If I were to need another vehicle, this is the first place I would look!

I Bought my 2010 Chevy from Bristol Auto Center recently. Alex worked with me to choose a vehicle and took care of everything I needed with finance and even delivered it to my home when i did not have a ride to pick it up. Talking with Mark, the owner, you can see why the stock is so good. Very knowledgeable, trusty worthy Dealer with high standards and great customer service!
We recently purchased a SUV from Bristol Auto Center and we are very pleased with the process from start to finish! I drove 2 hours from RI to meet with Mark and Alex his son, and it was worth the ride. We negotiated, reached an agreement, and they followed through with great results. They were honest, easy to work with, and we could not be happier with the car. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Mark and Peter (plus professional staff) have serviced all of our cars for the past 10 years. They have been honest, prompt and professional when dealing with any need. They take their time inspecting our cars, even if it is for a routine oil change. If a more complicated situation arises I have always trusted their advice and have been satisfied with their service.
Yep! 5/5 Marc and Peter are Spectacular. These guys have been working on my cars for the past five years. Every repair was explained in detail and I left every time knowing a little bit more about the vehicle. I have to be honest though I made the mistake of bringing my jeep to a dealership for a second opinion. After Marcs original diagnosis.. Well to make a long story short a couple thousand dollars later and my tail tucked between my legs I came back to Bristol Auto Center. Marc original diagnosis was spot on. Lesson learned. Marc and Peter welcomed me back of course without even an "I told you so". Professionalism at its best keep up the great work guys!!! Highly recommended
I've been servicing my vehicles there for the past few years now and its because of the professionalism and customer service that I keep going back every time. Its hard to trust dealerships and garages when it comes to advice when servicing your vehicle but if you want to meet two of the nicest, most genuine, honest, and professional individuals I've ever met in this industry please go to Bristol Auto Center for any and all of your service needs on your vehicles. Mark, Peter, and truthfully the entire staff at Bristol Auto Center treat you like family as I received from day one of meeting them. If you go in to have a specific item serviced they address that item and don't tell you that you need to have additional items addressed unless you truly need them and will take the time to show you because they care and understand because of some of the perceptions in the industry they need to earn your trust. Thank you for the level of service, pride, and integrity you bring to your business and pass on to your customers. I will only bring my vehicles to Bristol Auto Center and I will recommend them to all of my family and friends. Thank you for everything!!!
Buying a used car can be a nerve-wracking experience. But Mark and Alex at Bristol Auto Center made the process easy. No high pressure sales. Mark went... read more
I've been looking for a car for a while and ended up choosing an Audi from the Bristol Auto Center. Shopping for a car as a single girl is intimidating and I found these guys to be straight forward, reasonably priced and not sketchy. They were thorough with explaining the cars history (Book value, car fax, accident history-or lack there of), showed me the body, explained the motor and all the fancy dials, put it on a lift for me to see the underside and did an oil change and alignment prior to me taking it off the lot. Great dealership to work with. Highly recommended.
We just bought a Toyota 4Runner from Bristol Auto Center and we love it! The car was in ideal condition. Unlike other dealerships, Mark (one of the owners) will walk you through all the technical details and explain everything and anything about the car, very knowledgeable. The entire lot is good cars. I would buy any kind of car from them, the quality of stock and honesty separates them from the pack. Glad we are close in Farmington so we can keep servicing our cars here! Thanks Mark!!!
Just bought a Mercury Mariner from Bristol Autobody. Alex and Mark were great! They took the vehicle to my mechanic and were very accommodating . The car was in great condition for a great price! We were in and out in less than an hour! I would highly recommend and my wife and I will definitely go back for our next vehicle!
I bought my '13 Toyota RAV4 from Bristol Auto Center recently, it is my 3rd car from Mark and Peter. We have been loyal customers for years and years. As a repair shop they are absolutely top notch. As a dealership you can feel comfortable to buy ANY car from them, high quality vehicles only!
I have found a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab with a 5.7 L Hemi at Bristol Auto Center. The personal at the service facility and sales department are very friendly, knowledgeable, and a absolute pleasure to do business with. The owners Mark Vinarsky and Piotr Szarejko make the car buying experience very memorable and extremely smooth. If your in the market for a high quality pre-owned vehicle make Bristol Auto Center your first and only stop, you definitely wont be disappointed.

The Best Shop around
Bristol Auto Center is as good as it gets. I spent quite some time searching for an SUV for my daughter, first time driver. Owners Mark and Peter were great, you can see they are truly committed to excellence. The sales process was very painless. Alex, the sales manager, was very easy going and helpful explaining how the process works. He even drove 45 min to hand deliver our deal to the bank so we could have the car ASAP. The hardest part was choosing the vehicle, all the stock is A+. Fortunately we are local and will be returning for regular maintenance, I don't think there are better mechanics around!! Highly Recommend, so happy!

I've been going to Bristol Auto center for several years now and have had nothing but positive experiences. Historically I can't say I have has good experiences with mechanics. I felt lied to and taken advantage of. Bristol Auto has never made me feel taken advantage of and in fact one of the reasons I continue to go there is because they are so honest and go out of their way to get me the best deal possible. I have also purchased two vehicles from them and have had good luck and love them both and if I have any problems, I can just call them and if they can't help me out on the phone with advice they fit me to for a test drive. I've recently moved and drive 45 minutes for regular service checks because I trust them. I highly recommend Bristol Auto Center...you won't be disappointed.
Above and beyond
We recently bought a truck here and had a great experience. Mark, the co-owner, even brought the truck to our mechanic to have it checked out. Mark went out of his way many times to get this sale completed, even after unforeseen issues at DMV. I would highly recommend him as an honest person to buy a vehicle from.
I recently purchased a Murano from Mark who was very honest and accommodating. The buying process went smooth and I was able to leave with the car within a couple hours. Within a few days the check engine light came on so I stopped by the shop. I was assured by Mark that he would take care of whatever the issue was, and he was able to get the car in to be worked on at my earliest convenience. Mark and his crew worked as quickly and diligently as they could and ended up having to replace the head gasket, obviously a large expense. Everything was done at absolutely no cost to me. I appreciate them standing behind their business and cars and will continue to do business with them in the future. Thank you!
Bought an 07 Maxima a few months ago, haven't had any complaints. Mark was very personable and knows what he is talking about. He will not sell you a lemon. He made sure the car was in top shape before I drove it off the lot. Piotr in the garage is also a great guy and hard worker. No problems at all when I brought the car to the garage for an oil change last week. Overall entire staff seems like hard-workers and I would recommend Bristol Auto Center for anybody looking for a good used car.
