"I just want to say thank you so much to everyone who helped me when I got a flat tire at your car wash a couple of weeks ago, especially to Mr. Johnny Cheseldine. Huge thanks for putting on my spare tire and for ordering and replacing the tire at the shop. You all went above and beyond to help me. This was greatly appreciated and I will always remember it!" -Stephanie B.

"This is one of the best car washes I have ever been too. They do an excellent job and even make sure not to get the mats dirty after cleaning them. The self service car wash also does a great job."  - Patricia E.

"Cheseldine Car Wash is the place to go! Their facilities are always clean and my car looks great after they have washed, waxed and cleaned the interior. It’s worth the drive across the bridge."  - Nancy S.

Johnny and Gary, Thought I'd take a moment to thank you for the wonderful service I receive at Cheseldine Auto Group.  I've been doing business with you for almost 20 years and have always been taken care of well.  I remember the first time I brought my car in with a hole in a tire I had purchased there sometime before.  Gary repaired the tire and didn't charge me.  When i questioned it, he told me that was policy.  FREE flat repair for life.  I remember being shocked... I had never before really gotten the warranty that seemed to come with any tire.  I was sold from then on.  An honest auto group....  I'm glad we can even buy cars from you guys now.  Keep up the great work.”  Debbie N.

“The staff at Cheseldine are knowledgeable, friendly and honest.  I'm not sure what else you'd like from a tire & auto place.  All four cars in my family have been sent to Cheseldine for routine maintenance and for any problems, and I have no complaints over their services (which we've used for the past decade or so).  When we first started going there, we were also checking in with a local Jiffy Lube -- until JL told us we needed to pay over a hundred dollars for a faulty part on the car.  We checked with Cheseldine and they told us the correction was needed in a different part (that only cost $20 or something) and saved us a lot of money and headache.  Gary and his staff are honest and fast.

I also (almost exclusively) use their car wash, too, which is speedy, clean, and run by more hard-workers.”

“The other reviews here gave Cheseldine five stars - and that's no joke. They'll give you top-notch service in a timely manner, and their prices are very reasonable. They've stayed late to give me oil changes, and squeezed me in when their appointment book was full. These guys have been in business for years and years, and have a very loyal following in Lexington Park, and for good reason. Avoid Jiffy Lube at all costs, and visit this place instead.”

“Let me tell you the store how I came across Cheseldine. I have a 2001 Jeep Wangler that was due, by the book, for a tune up. Nothing was wrong with it. So I took it to a shop down 235 on the left towards the navy base and was told that it would be over $100 for the tune up. So I went to Cheseldine and Gary was at the desk. He took my keys and told me that he would call my cell and let me know anything. So about a half hour later my cell phone rings and Gary said that my jeep is ready. I asked, "How much?" Gary noted that nothing was due because a tune up was not required. Now THAT is service! 11 years later Gary now services all of out vehicles.” William Q.  (from

“Ditto to every other comment.....I no longer live in Sotuern MD, but make the 1.5 hr drive on Saturday morning to have my cars serviced there....need I say more?”

“Continued superb service. Just completed a 5,000 mile trip in our 5 year old, 110,000 mile van which Cheseldine has maintained since it was purchased. Trip went great thanks to Cheseldine's superb car care. I've used Cheseldine since moving into the area in 1998. They have not charged me for front end alignments when I asked for one, but they determined I didn't need it, they have replaced the transmission in my 2000 Dodge Caravan, They provide free brake inspections, tire repairs and tire rotations (if you purchased the tires from them so every other oil change I get my tires rotated at no charge), and have provided other superb services. I strongly recommend Cheseldine for any car maintenance or repairs. My whole fleet of 4 family owned cars goes there.”

I”'ve been taking my vehicles here for years and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. The service is above all, honest! Family owned and operated, Gary is always on hand to explain the problem.”  Trish B. (from

“Cheseldine was recommended to me when I moved to Maryland about a year ago. Since then, they've routinely serviced two of my late-model vehicles flawlessly. And the turn-around time is amazing!”

“It is hard to find a garage that I can trust and one that doesn't think I am an ignorant female. This place is the only place I trust to take care of my upkeep maintenance.”  Jillian  (from
