My family has been using Bowles for a little over 10 years now, honestly this is the best place in the entire Charlotte and lake Norman area to take your vehicle. I just recently had my car brought in and I knew there were major problems with it so I got a free estimate. (Ended up at around $3500) which was not bad at all for what was wrong with it (it’s not the most reliable) I will be basically getting a new-feeling car for a fraction of the price while having the piece of mind that Bowles is taking care of it. Not only are they understanding and friendly but their hospitality is out of this world, I was even provided with a free shuttle twice to drive me home rather than paying for an Uber or having a friend or family member pick me up and take me back. Anyone who needs anything done to their car needs to go here. - Wyatt E (5 star review found on Google)

Great service and good prices. They are an honest and trustworthy shop. Would definitely recommend! - Danial B (5 star review found on Google)

Bowles has always given me great service and has always been very honest. Used them when I lived in Mooresville and I now live in Cool Springs and I STILL go to them. It may be out of my way, but, I KNOW I'm getting great service. - Bob M (5 star review found on Google)

exhaust on a vehicle

Exhaust issues are extremely common, no matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive. At Bowles Automotive in Mooresville, NC, we can get your exhaust back in shape in no time.

Exhaust issues tend to be neglected, and we get that; there are just other parts of your vehicle that you'd rather focus on. Besides a clogged catalytic converter, there isn’t much risk of damage from a bad exhaust system - it negatively affects your gas mileage, and the sound is annoying, but other than that, it’s an issue many people learn to live with.
