Every time I go to Ekart I am very satisfied. Great people, good communication, and good pricing. They are the only people in town I trust working on my old classic car. - Scott F. (5 star review on Google)

Quick and affordable service! - Amy S. (5 star review on Google)

10/10 recommend this place to anyone and everyone. Great service at a great price. My first experience with these guys was a year ago when the AC quit in my car. Being a young single girl, I was worried about going to a place where they’d take advantage of my lack of knowledge and assume I wouldn’t be the one paying for the expenses.  I went to these guys for a 2nd opinion and I’m so glad that I did. They were willing to try a simpler fix at no cost and see how it did before jumping in to the more expensive one. It ended up having to go with the more costly repair, but I was fully trusting with them at that point. They texted me numerous times this last year to make sure my car was still doing okay as well. I ended up having to have another repair a few weeks ago and of course these guys got me in right away and had it fixed up in a day. My grandpa/uncle have a repair shop in my hometown, so I was apprehensive to have anybody work on my car other than them. But these guys give that same small town family business feel. No longer needing to find time to make a trip “home” just to have my oil changed is pretty nice. Terry and his guys are truly great. - Cameron M. (5 star review on Google)

Ekart's Auto is the only shop in town I will take my car. They are incredibly knowledgeable, trustworthy, and do great work. They always keep me up-to-date on their progress and give me the information I need to make an informed decision. I highly recommend them! - Cole C. (5 star review on Google)

Awesome people, great service! - Frank G. (5 star review on Google)

When I first moved to Manhattan I would usually shop around and get quotes from at least 2 auto repair shops whenever I had to have work done. Ekart always was the lowest price, so after doing that for about a year, I have only been going to Ekart since. While they will inform me if they noticed anything else that needs to be fixed, I have never felt pressured to fix a laundry list of items they found while just doing an oil change. I have never felt cheated and feel like they have always been straight forward with me. - Stephen H. (5 star review on Google)

Trusted and knowledgable staff. Reasonably priced as well! Thank you, guys. Will definitely be coming back. - Robyn K. (5 star review on Google)

On my way back to Kansas City, I stopped by Ekart's because a huge piece of plastic was hanging out above my driver side tire. Terry was extremely helpful and took my car into the shop and ripped out the plastic for me. He didn't charge me anything and I was on my way back to Kansas City. I highly recommend taking your car into Ekart's!  - Jonathon H. (5 star review on Google)

Very quick oil change and friendly, knowledgeable staff. - Allison F. (5 star review on Google)

Took my car in for a water leak and was told the head gasket was out. They took really good care of me and they were fast too!!! My car runs awesome now and I have made them my everyday shop. A must for car repair in Manhattan Kansas. (5 star review on Google)

Most honest place in town. I have been taking my cars there for years and would not trust anyone else. They have been in business for over 50 years which should tell you something. You will be happy. (5 star review on Google)

I have taken my car in twice for engine problem and rotted battery cables. The workers are very nice and you truely get the small town atmosphere. I also really liked that they called me once they figured out what was wrong with it before doing work, that way I had no suprise charges on my bill, they asked permission before doing anything to my car. This you wont find at any dealership or department store auto shop. (5 star review on Google)

I started going to Ekart's a few months ago. I am a student at KSU and they treated me great. They called me and told me what was wrong with my car and then called my parents to explain it to them. Very helpful and very fair pricing. My parents were impressed and that is not easily done. Will go back for sure. - Thomas K. (5 star review on Google)

Ekart Automotive is the best auto place in Manhattan! - Nicole C.  (5 star review on Google)

I took my car in to get my check engine light fixed and got my car back the next day. They said thought they fixed the problem it if the light came back on to come back and they'd fix it without charging more labor. The light came back on and I took it in the next day and they fixed it and didn't charge me $100 more because they carried the amount I paid for labor from the first over to the second visit. Fair. Smart. Honest.  - Timothy K. (5 star review on Google)

Quick and friendly. Got my car in and out in the same day. They found some other stuff they could do on my car, sent me pictures of what it was and asked if it was okay if they fixed it, which I really appreciated. - Eli K. (5 star review on Google)

I have used Ekart's since moving back to Manhattan in 2004! They have always treated me well and it feels like family when you talk with them. They have been able to deliver on big jobs with a small time window. I always appreciate Ray and Terry's insights when trying to make the best decision for my families automotive repair needs! - Ben G.  (5 star review on Google)
