We provide high quality service for both you and your car
We may utilize state-of-the-art diagnostics and equipment, but here at Melton’s we run on old school customer service and business ethics. We only fix what needs fixing, will never try to sell you services that aren’t necessary, and we do it right the first time. We specialize in automotive services ranging from a basic oil change to transmission repair, certified state vehicle inspections, and tire sales. We even offer towing and roadside assistance for when your car breaks down, and our team will always give you a call a week after a repair to make sure everything is running smoothly with your vehicle as it should.
We are located 2 blocks from East Campus and walking distance to 9th Street.

Close to Duke, I ride my bike there. Very friendly and honest. We have had Honda, Toyota, and Ford maintenance and major repairs done here for several years. – Martin B.
Melton’s was recommended to me by a friend and longtime Durham resident. The service is excellent. They only fix what’s necessary, and at a fair price. I had my CV joints replaced by them a year or so ago and the part was defective. Instead of complaining about replacing the bad part, they made the repair with no questions asked and no additional charge. I will not go anywhere else! – Kevin L.
