If you are fussy or even if you’re not about where you take or leave your car for repairs you will appreciate your experience with Hudson Automotive.

The owner Sean and his crew are very knowledgeable and will take great care of your vehicle explaining in great detail what needs to be done and why.

Sean doesn’t guess when recommending the repairs and is very thorough in his explaining the needed repairs.

I have had many satisfying experiences with Hudson Automotive doing repairs on my classic Cadillac, my daily driver Corvette and my daughters Mustang’s one being supercharged which most mechanics lack in the ability to do repairs.

I am very particular about who works on my cars and the shop environment. I was first impressed with the shop which is always kept immaculate and after meeting Sean the decision was easy.

Try Hudson Automotive once, you will be impressed!

Bottom line, I trust Sean Hudson with my cars.  Over the past few years, Sean has proven himself to be reasonable and thorough.  I don’t take my two cars any where else.

For my older car, he wanted to understand my goals, whether we were going to keep it for the long haul or just a short while so that we could set up a maintenance plan for the car, not just chase this or that repair.  The result was that we performed the maintenance that was needed and set a timeline for other items over the coming year.  Smart.

Whether for routine maintenance or major repairs, the team at Hudson Automotive do great work at reasonable prices.

An extra perk is the low low rates that Sean will get for you should you need a car for a few days if yours is in the shop.

A noteworthy thing happened though… upon picking up my car after having some work done.  I noted that something seemed amiss.  Without skipping a beat, Sean and his team jumped on it, found something that needed to be addressed, and made it right.  We are all human and a little thing may get missed here and there occasionally, however, there was no defensiveness whatsoever.  They own their work and are proud of the quality of their service.

I can’t imagine finding another shop with this much consideration for quality, customer needs, and attention to detail.

I trust Hudson Automotive, and will continue to use them with all my cars.

After MANY years, I have never taken the time to write a Yelp review until today.

Sean Hudson and his team at Hudson Automotive are absolutely the best, most trustworthy group in the business.  I had brought my 2008 Yukon Hybrid to them a year ago just for a check.  They took care of the typical maintenance issues quickly, and I was on my way.

Fast forward to TODAY when a “check engine” light went on on my dashboard.  I called Sean and he did not hesitate to have me bring my car in for a quick check.  Even though he and his team were enjoying a holiday lunch together and will be closed next week for Christmas, he was more than willing to check my car to make sure it was safe to drive.  I am so appreciative to him–he truly wanted to make sure my family was safe, even if it meant I would need to bring it to another repair shop while his was closed for the holiday season.  How incredible is that???

Sean is extremely professional, helpful and trustworthy, but the best part is that he CARES about his customers.

Sean is like the Car Whisperer. OK that’s a little silly, but truly he and the rest of the Hudson crew are customer focused car experts.

It’s never FUN to spend money on car repairs, but with Hudson I feel good about spending it and confident in the work.

Owner-operated. Honest. Thorough. Direct.

Six years taking in a 10 year old car… still runs like when I bought it.

Thank you Sean.


Thoroughness & Honesty – regardless of whether you are driving a 100K car or you need to work out issues with a maturing car.  These guys treat you and your car with respect regardless.  For the confidence that Sean and his shop inspire they are worth every penny of their comparable rates.

As a woman needing to navigate the scary world of auto repair, I am just glad I don’t have to worry and go comparing diagnosis and quotes anymore.  If fact, before my last major repair my father – who is back east – had to speak with Sean on his approach and repair plan before …. He approved!

I have taken all my cars to Hudson Auto for more than 2 years. Sean takes really good care of them, deals with me straight, and goes out of his way to keep me as a customer. Why would anyone ever go anywhere else?

I’ve known Jack Hudson for DECADES and I grew up in the car business.  START HERE.  If Hudson can’t do it, it can’t be done. I absolutely recommend them without hesitation.

normally do not take the time to write reviews about services I use. However, in the case of Hudson Automotive, they have earned my loyalty. In my opinion, people looking for a car repair shop should be looking at two things: knowledge and trustworthiness. I believe Hudson Automotive has both. Over the last three years, Sean and his staff have demonstrated to be knowledgeable and honest with the repairs and maintenance of our BMW. I highly recommend Sean and his team.

I wouldn’t go anywhere else.  Sean is highly competent, fair, and most of all, trustworthy.  The shop is always immaculate and carries the most up-to-date technology and equipment.
