I called to get an oil change and it was cheaper than a local competitor that I had gone to, and they even inflated my tires that were a little low! I appreciate their great customer service!!

Had my old Mercedes to 3 other shops to get the brakes working and they could not find the problem. Southern had to order parts but had me stopping the next day at a reasonable cost for that car. I need to get back for a tune up.
