Gulf Coast Auto & Truck Repair

Referred by a fried due to work schedule dropped my truck to their parking lot after buss hrs. Next morning received a call from John. Extremely professional, down to the core of the subject no b.s. clearly told me what is wrong with it and give me an estimate even prior to do anything. I already run my OBD-II so I knew what was wrong with the truck and John was honest straight and clear. He called me later and suggest to change another ignition coil abiut to fail, while its in the shop to save another trip. I like the place I like their professionalism and their honesty. I found my mechanic and not going anywhere else anymore. Highly recommended.

Very happy with the repair of the wheel bearings on my Buick Enclave. Called when they said they would, free ride back home with no waiting, final price was close to the estimate, car ready when they said it would be, & now it drives like a dream! Hope I don’t need any more repairs anytime soon but if I do, I know exactly where I’ll go - right here!

I have used Gulf Coast Auto & Truck since 1998 without any significant problems. When they give their opinion on needed & future automobile repairs, I have over the years come to trust their suggestions.

I brought my car in for an alignment. They were very busy and still managed to fit me in even though I didn’t have an appointment. They were very courteous and didn’t talk down to me because I’m a woman (my pet peeve). They also explained to me why my car was out of alignment so we could fix the root issue and save me from further wear and tear on the vehicle. Overall a great experience!

Gulf Coast Auto and Truck repair is my go to repair shop. The reason is they do what I ask them to do and in a timely fashion. I have an older car - 2007 - and I have had no issue with repairs made by this shop.

I have used this shop several times always very courteous. Price is always very reasonable and they go above and beyond to inform me of the issue and how they will fix the problem. Also they are honest and let me know if fixing the problem will be worth the trouble and the money.

Always a pleasure to deal with Randy and the crew. You can count on the work that they do and they have always stood behind the service they provide. I have done business with them and counted on them for many - many years!

We have used Gulf Coast for some time now for our business trucks and our personal cars. They are always on time with their work, give a good reasonable estimate, and remain professional but friendly.

I took our Dodge Ram Dually in because the steering was a little too loose. They got me right in, found the problem quickly and advised me of the cost. They didn't try to do unnecessary work and the cost was less than I expected. Everyone there was professional and friendly. I would definitely recommend them.

Had an emergency and these gentlemen completely took care of my truck. Am satisfied with what I got and what I paid. Randy is a great guy. Thank you for doing a great job

I've had these people work on my F-250 twice and both times they did a great job and got the truck back to me before I thought they could.

Gulf Coast has worked on my 2006 Dodge ram and other vehicles numerous times. My truck has 200k+ miles and requires more maintenance than I wish. They’ve always been straightforward with there answers and fix the issue. I’ve probably spent $5000 on maintenance in the last 4 years, and I’v never had to return it for something they previously addressed. As far as price comparison goes, I have no reference. My thought is you pay for what you get. Do you want the job done right, Or cheap. They do it right.

Professional company, but still part of the neighborhood. They have always done a great job for us. We feel blessed that someone sent us to them.

Very professional and respectful. I’ve taken my truck to 4 different shops to get it aligned and no one did it right. I took it to Gulf Coast and they not only found many other issues as to why it hasn’t been properly aligned, but they also got it aligned perfectly. Highly recommend this shop!

We had a work truck break down in the vicinity of this shop and just brought it because of location and convenience. They jumped right in it and had us out the door that day. And it wasn't just a little repair. It had to do with the truck's AWD. I felt like they were honest, responsive, and helpful. Definitely recommend.

Very friendly and helpful staff!! I would definitely recommend this shop for all your repairs. Randy at the front counter is very knowledgeable

Very good experience. It is like going to the dealer without the dealer price.

Frank and the guys fixed my front wheel bearing problem on my Nissan Titan. New bearing assemblies and rotors and pads as well as one new caliper. Serviced the truck in 6 hours and was easy for pickup. Frank personally communicated starting at 8am about what the issues were and his recommendations. I’m very pleased with the whole process and the communication

I did a Google search for best customer rated auto care businesses near 77539. After reading several reviews on several businesses I chose Gulf Coast to call and ser if they could find out what was wrong with my truck. Being a woman trying to describe and give sound effects of the noises my truck was making didn't bother Randy or Blake. I told them what my concerns were and Blake said just bring it in to our shop and I or one of my technicians will drive it, and to the best of our ability determine what and where the noises are coming from. Before I got home I had already received a text telling me what the noises were. It was my transmission and even though they don't specialize in fixing transmissions they were honest in telling me I should take it to a Certified Transmission shop. I called and had a guy locally in their area that works on transmissions go pick it up from their shop. Randy was very honest and didn't even charge me anything to drive it and take a look at it. As a customer our greatest fears are that we are going to be taken advantage of by an auto repairman. I appreciate their kindness and patience in talking with me and DEFINITELY appreciate their honesty. I will definitely take my truck back to have the other mechanical issues taken care of after my Transmission is taken care of. Thank you again for your honesty, respect and patience.

My husband and I were new to the area 2017 when my Tahoe needed some service. I had taken it to several shops and was told completely different diagnosis. Frustrated at this point I started asking my customers who they would refer and many had referred Gulf Coast Auto Repair. After taking my vehicle in and discussing options with the owner Frank, I.e.best value options, and what needed to be taken care at that time( also which options would save money, AND that the other diagnoses from the other places were not the problem) I decided to have them fix it! Extremely satisfied with the service! What they diagnosed was the problem, NOT what the other shops had told me! Since that day not only has my husband taken his truck in for service but Me being a woman felt positive enough to send many of my female clients to him and my female employees who are single. They also felt confident when their cars were completed. Frank and his shop truly gives you the best service needed, Whether your a female(won't steer you wrong) or a male! This is not a place that will lead you to think it's something way more expensive if it's not! LADIES this IS the place you will feel confident about the diagnosis! They even take me back to work when needed at no extra cost. Also his shop is extremely clean......Rare to find!!

Yelp User ReviewI cannot recommend Gulf Coast Auto & Truck Repair enough! Frank, Randy, Blake and the whole team are just good honest people. GCATR is the ONLY place I will ever take my vehicles. I highly recommend them to everyone. They are the most honest, trustworthy, respectful and knowledgeable mechanics I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. From simple oil changes to catalytic converter to differential and rear end replacement(and more) they have delivered above and beyond very time. They always go the extra mile, and they always listen to my concerns and address them and explain everything so thoroughly. I have learned so much about my car since I've been bringing it to them! They keep me updated through calls/texts/pictures of the repairs being done and how they are progressing. They always shoot me strait and never recommend service or repairs that are not needed. I have had some really horrible experiences elsewhere before I found them. There's a lot of mechanics out there that will take advantage of you and recommend or flat out lie about repairs that need to be done that don't. Ive been out thousands of dollars for bad repairs..you could say I had serious trust issues before finding GCATR. They have earned my trust and loyalty for life, I will never have to worry about my vehicle when it's in their care! They fix it right the first time and stand by their work. I cannot say enough good things about them! They are one of a kind, and definitely a blessing to me! Peace of mind and trust are hard to find these days, thank you Gulf Coast Auto & Truck Repair! Don't make the same mistakes I did, take your vehicles to GCATR...you will not be disappointed!!

My truck was making a horrible noise and I was afraid the motor was shot. They came and towed my truck and fixed it in one day! The starter was bad and they didn't charge me an arm and a leg to fix it. I would recommend these folks.

I've been dreading to have my vehicle worked on as I was told I'd have to take it to the dealer to get the ABS Computer fixed. I just kept driving it with the ABS light coming on for a while. I had some other issues pop up. A lot of people from my car club recommended me to another shop in the area. I saw Gulf Coast Auto's reviews and FB page. The other shop never replied back to me via their "contact us" page. I thought that was a bad sign. Also when I visited the other shops FB page I noticed people who work there posting foul language and that turned me off quickly. Very unprofessional.


I noticed that Gulf Coast Auto had a clean Facebook page and only talked about vehicles and it was very professional page. I bit the bullet and took my car in yesterday morning. Boy I've been missing out for a long time about this hidden gym. I mostly dealt with Frank the General Manager, but some of the times I called in and Randy or Blake answered the phone and they were top notch.


I've never had a shop text me so often to tell me what they were doing on my vehicle. I've always had to call other shops back as they never call you back. My car had many things worked on and it was ready on Tuesday at 2pm. That is unheard of around League City. If I could give these people 100 stars they deserve it. All that was needed for the ABS was a Wheel sensor, but I do thank you for fixing all the other things wrong and the other things I kept texting back to have repaired. Drives great. If I ever need anything else I will be back. I will also recommend your business to all my friends. Thank you again very much.

Lots of reasons why this place earns 5 stars: honest, responsive, knowledgeable, friendly. I strongly recommend Gulf Coast.


I took my car to another shop in League City and almost immediately regretted that decision. After finding Gulf Coast on Yelp and reading the positive reviews, I called them up and they agreed to come tow my car from the first shop to their location. They kept me posted every step of the way and informed me of the cost before proceeding with any labor intensive testing. When they called to tell me what the problem was, they had already checked the recall notices and advised that I take my SUV to the dealer so the recalls could be taken care of at no charge. They actually took the time to run the appropriate tests and were able to clearly explain the results.


I'll go straight back to them anytime I have any future issues. They're amazing!

I brought them my 20 year old, high mileage vehicle with strange "issues". I was expecting the worst, but these guys actually took the time to fix it right!

WOW! Most shops would have just replaced the (insert expensive part here) and I would have never known the difference. Because as I said, I was expecting a BIG repair bill!

I like my old cars so I'll be back to them with more "issues"!
