"I had my 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe inspected at Hometown Garage as a second opinion in October 2014. I received a hefty quote from a primary garage nearby, and arranged with my employer to travel to Hometown Garage to verify. I arrived after a brief search. The place is sparse, and you may have to keep your eyes peeled to find them, but you can feel the pride they put in their service. Employment-wise, I am about as far away from the automotive industry as you can get. I've had a few runins and miscommunications over the years, and haven't we all? So when I check out a new automotive shop, I'm sensitive to a place that not only communicates clearly, but has the knowledge to back it up and makes me feel like my vehicle and its needs are in good hands. A place that makes you feel like you've been a customer for years, even though its your first time there. John and his crew were clear, direct, to the point and fair, and you can feel the respect they have for eachother. I believe this place has a bright future. To me, it's similar to eating at a legendary hole-in-the-wall restaurant in town. Sure, it might not have the most up-to-date decor, but what matters is the food. And the same goes for here. What matters was the service, and John and crew really delivered for me. If you're looking for a fair destination for your automotive needs, check this place out. Were I a little closer, this positive experience would make me unquestionably make Hometown Garage my primary automotive location."

You can count on John to communicate with you and that your vehicle is in good hands. There are many garages to choose from and I hope this review helps you to choose Hometown Garage."

"I've had a couple of my vehicles serviced at Hometown Garage and the service was excellent. John and his staff really take pride in their work. Also, the billing and customer service was honest and ethical, which is rare these days. All the work performed was explained in advance, and the invoice was backed up by documentation. No billing surprises at Hometown Garage. I can't see going anywhere else when in need of auto repair."
Steve W from Portland, CT
"New to Middletown and I encountered a blown out clutch shortly after moving here. In my hunt for a reputable shop to take my car to, I came across Hometown Garage. After speaking with John, I felt comfortable taking my car to get repaired. A small run business is definitely my preference as I feel those working on your car put way more effort and heart into what they're doing. Hometown Garage did just that. John was incredibly easy and pleasant to deal with. With my clutch repair, he could have also charged me to replace my flywheel, as I assume many other shops would have arbitrarily done. Instead, he was honest in telling me that it COULD be replaced but it wasn't a necessary repair, and he instead just buffed the piece for me so that it was in better shape."
