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.

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.

by - Verified Customer September 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.

by - Verified Customer September 11, 2014

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

by - Verified Customer August 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!!!

by - Verified Customer August 12, 2014

Quality work, sound recommendations. Straight shooters.

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.
