They worked hard to find and solve a tricky problem. Several other mechanics failed over the years--these guys were great! I wish I had found them years ago.

The professionals at Autotech were very helpful when it came to my car repair. They offered sound advice with no pressure as to which particular path to take so that I could make the best decision. They were timely in their responses. I couldn't ask for more out of a car repair experience

I've been a customer for 4-5 years and have had the same mechanic for most of that time. I trust Rick enough to do anything he recommends. I decided to keep my car because he keeps it running like new.

I like the shuttle service. The employees are friendly. The owner calls after the service to see if the customer is satisfied.

It is not fair for me to rate Autotech at this time because I am having a service call at the Jaguar auto shop in two months, if they say your work is satisfactory, I will give you my highest support and my car repairs forever.

Damaged my vehicle, was unable to fix it, then refused to cover the repair costs.

Took my MINI Cooper in for a water pump replacement (~$700). Unable to consistently start my car after getting it back. Had my car towed back the next day to see what the problem was. It started for them and they claimed it was the immobilizer. Once back home, it would not start again. Had it towed to Autotech a second time. After 4 days, they could not determine the problem and admitted that they did not have the proper tools to diagnose. They recommended I get it towed to a dealer.

Had it towed to another mechanic that was able to identify the problem: the wiring harness that passes over the water pump was crushed (tool marks pressed into the insulation) and torn. All of the wires were bright copper (i.e. no dust or oxidation = new damage). There has been no other engine bay repairs for over 18 months.

I presented documentation to the owner, Tony Solorio, including my request that he refund the original Autotech repair costs, which totaled less than the harness repair and towing fees. Tony claimed that the wires appeared to have been chewed and that there was no way Autotech could have been responsible for the damage. He refused my offer to look at the harness in person. Autotech has opted to allow third party arbitrators to decide.
