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)

I used them when I first came to Manhattan 15 years ago and then as i moved to another part of town i started using other companies because they were closer to work but i have come full circle in a painful way to realize that these guys at Ekarts are ABSOLUTELY THE BEST. We now have our entire fleet of vehicles taken care of by them and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them. - David D. (5 star review on Google)

Great service, fast turn-around time, and best prices in MHK. - Christian I. (5 star review on Google)

Amazing job! I though I was screwed when I found out my car needed some serious work. But they worked with me on the finance part of it. They fixed my car in no time at all. They were all very friendly and even offered me a ride if needed. Thanks to them I have my car back and feel save driving it. I will be using them again. - Mary M. (5 star review on Google)

Thankful for the services that Ekart Automotive provides. Believe they work hard to make sure your vehicle is serviced and running as expected. Will continue to bring my business to them. - Jordan S. (5 star review on Google)

Ekart Automotive does a great job, gets it done quickly and are a bunch of stand up people. I've brought my wife's car in multiple times and every time I receive the same quality and professional service. They promptly call to give updates on the service and let you know if there will be any change in price. As long as I'm in Manhattan, Ekart is where I'll go. -  (5 star review on Google)

I have really enjoyed their experience. They have been really friendly and they work with me always. Ray is the person whom I always go to and he is always there for me. Him and the guys have my back and I know that I can count on them and trust them all. I would recommend this place very much to many others, as I already do just that. - Zach P. (5 star review on Google)

Prices, service, speed and friendliness always are EXCELLENT! - Becce G.  (5 star review on Google)

Fantastic staff. Got my car in and out faster than any other place I called in town. Really worked with me and so very thankful I went here! Will continue to recommend. - Joe K. (5 star review on Google)

I have taken my vehicle to Elkart Automotive for maintenance and oil changes on multiple occasions over the past two years and each time has been a good experience. The staff is very friendly and does a good job of explaining what work needs to be done and they give accurate estimates on what costs I would be looking at for repairs. They are very accommodating on scheduling, especially in short notice situations when problems have occurred with my vehicle, and they have always gotten my vehicle back to me in a timely fashion. Highly recommended. - Tom L. (5 star review on Google)

Been doing business with Ekart's since 1977 when the father owned the business. They were recommended by a neighbor who needed his vehicle for his work. As a sometimes mechanic when I was younger, I found that recommendation to be spot on. - Arthur V. (5 star review on Google)

Great service -- they told us what was wrong before they fixed it! Very honest. - Melissa R. (5 star review on Google)
