"Vaughn and his crew provide not only quality work you can trust, but also the best customer service. Everyone there makes you feel like family. They are very thorough in explaining what the problems are with my car. Being a female, it's important to know that they are being upfront with me. Vaughn has gone the extra mile for me on a few occassions. We have two trucks and one Acura, he works on them all. If integrity is important to you then Auto Japan is the place to go."— RiniRNL from Santa Rosa

"Absolutely THE MOST skilled, honest, diligent repair shop I have encountered in my 60 years. My old Buick had big problems (my wife has a Lexus, hence my entry there). Vaughn read the codes and fixed what they suggested. When the repair did not "take," Vaughn gave me a brand new loaner and left me alone with it for three weeks while he drove my Buick daily home and back to further diagnose. It turned out to be a wiring repair more costly than the car's value. In addition to the three-week gift of a loaner, Vaughn "comped" me with additional services well in excess of the cost of the original repair. So if they can't fix IT, they will fix YOU! All other work on our cars timely, excellent, and about half what dealers charge for same services. These guys definitely walk the extra mile ... and it's a long mile! Forget the rest. go to the best: Auto Japan." autojapanenthusiast
