You Don't Have to Take Our Word for It!

Here's what some of our satisfied customers have to say about Southside Automotive Inc.:

Friendly and professional service was the benchmark at this shop. Owner Wally Rauvala and chief auto technician Gary Keivla bent over backwards to get our vintage Vixen 21 RV back on the road as soon as parts could be located and installed. Beyond their professionalism, Wally and Gary were altogether decent people to work with. By their graciousness, they were able to keep the stress of our breakdown situation to a manageable level. The Marquette market is lucky to have this shop in their community. I would recommend them without hesitation.


Wally came to my rescue on US-41 on a very cold evening to help me with a flat. Most of my tools were stripped and he came out of his way to help me get back on the road. I recommend anyone who needs any automobile services done, go to Wally at Southside Automotive, he will take care of you! Tell them Ryan sent ya!

Wally and Marty, always have a smile on their faces and go the extra mile to make sure everyone is happy!

Benjamin M.

Very professional and polite. They went beyond what was expected compared to any experience at other vehicle repair shops. I would recommend Southside Automotive for your next maintenance or repair needs.

Had a complete motor swap done. The crew was very helpful and made sure I was okay with everything done the whole way through. Saved me money where they could and have held up their end of the deal with warranty and making sure my truck is running the way it should. Not the first work I've had done there but deffinetly the biggest job. All my experiences with them have been great and I feel like I've gotten the best deals I can. Would recommend for sure!

Service at Southside is great! Wally is super knowledgeable and insightful in answering all the questions and concerns I had. He also went out of his way to explain everything in layman's terms so I knew what I was paying for. He didn't try to sell me on anything I didn't need (like so many other shops have) and showed me what went wrong with my old parts. Great service, I will certainly be coming back here again!!!

Jordan M.

Wally and the gang at Southside always do exceptional work and have never let me down. I have been burned many times by a lot of local places but that's not the way Wally does business. It's the only place in the area I go to and the only one I recommend!

William B.

Hardworking and honest group. Nice to know you're in good hands when using their services.

I was having an issue with fuses (or so I thought) so I randomly stopped in to see if I could buy some. When I asked to buy 12 of them, he came right out & looked at the issue (it was a wire problem, not fuses in the end) for 45 mins & never charged me! & this was at the end of his day & he stayed over a half hour more! So I made an appt & was overjoyed with the way they solved the problem & how much it cost. Very reasonable. This is a great garage, I would HIGHLY recommend them!

Kristen G.

I had a few problems with my truck over the past couple weeks. I have went to Southside for all of them. They fixed it in a timely manner everytime for a fair price. Great people to work with. Great place to go. Will highly recommend to anyone.
