They take good care of my car; keep records of service and what is needed. They are courteous and helpful and do not suggest unnecessary fixes.

Verified CustomerSeptember 20, 2014

We have been using AE for car service for over 20 years and have always had a very positive experience and well-running cars. They have also been available by phone for slightly off-topic questions such as buying a used vehicle and quirky car issues while traveling out of state.

Excellent customer service, car was ready when promised at a fair price.

Verified CustomerSeptember 17, 2014

Automotive Excellence has been my mechanic for over 20 years. Mike and his crew are on top of what really needs to be done - never recommend repairs that don't need to be done, or can help you prioritize repairs/maintenance to accommodate a budget. I appreciate an honest business.

Verified CustomerSeptember 13, 2014

I have been a customer for many years and I have come to trust their judgment and their work. I drive 90 miles to have my car serviced and/or repaired by Mike and his crew and would not consider taking my vehicle to any other shop.

Verified CustomerSeptember 11, 2014

Been with them for over 20 years and am very happy with their work and professonalism.

Great customer service.

Verified CustomerAugust 17, 2014

Automotive Excellence is the ONLY place I will take my car...Mike & his team are honest, dependable, trustworthy....and I KNOW my car is in 'good hands' when it is there. I have recommended ALL my friends that have Japanese cars to go there. I learned a LONG time ago how valuable an honest mechanic is to have.....clearly I have had those in the past that were not! I have them do ALL the servicing for my car, including oil changes & tires....I know if Mike says my car is IS!!!

Automotive Excellence does a great job, but since we live in Santa Rosa (as do our friends), it is a little out of the way.

Good service, trust. Only problem is electronic updates that I apparently have to get from the dealer.

We have been taking our Honda cars to Automotive Excellence for almost 27 years now, beginning with our 1987 Honda Accord. We finally gave the car away, in 2012, with over 300,000 miles and still running strong, and we're absolutely sure this is because of the incredible attention to detail that the mechanics at Automotive Excellence give to each car. They have never told us we need an unnecessary repair, and are friendly and knowledgeable in answering our questions. Before finding Automotive Excellence, I could never say that I fully trusted an auto repair shop, but I can honestly say that now. I would never take my cars anywhere else. In fact, the next brand of car we buy will be determined by whether Automotive Excellence services that model! My husband and I highly recommend Automotive Excellence - they really do stand true to their name!
