Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Value

Solid service. Ted is a great mechanic who know his stuff. I was very impressed with how he made the effort to educate me about that he was doing to my truck. Safe to say he’s my new “guy”

I’ve been looking for a good diesel mechanic ever since I moved to the Pipe Creek area 4yrs ago. I own a 1997 f250 with the 7.3. I needed a new rear main seal and a few other things. Ted, the owner of Bandera Performance Diesel was awesome. He kept me up to date on progress and is very personable. My search is over. I highly recommend checking out Bandera Performance Diesel.

I’m from out of state but was buying a vehicle from a Bendera local. Called Ted at Bendera Performance Diesel and he headed out to the seller within days! He looked it over and gave me a quote to make her road worthy and safe. Not only that but he took the vehicle from the sellers house down to his shop and did the work needed so I could arrive and head off straight away. Ted was polite and quick and very responsive. He even worked with us when plans had to change and got the work done faster then we had talked about! Great people here! 10/10 would recommend!

Awesome place. I have been to many diesel mechanics and none are even close to as good as this place. Very knowledgeable, excellent work, and even better prices. I finally found my mechanic. Highly recommended!
