Car Care Center
May 02, 2013

Car Care Center just performed major work on my Pacifica. My car is 10 years old (technically 9 years but bought it in the year before its release) and it is starting to have things fail . . . engine mounts, fuel pumps, electrical systems just to name a few . . . this week the dreaded water pump decided to die.

I actually checked to see what the Dealer Service Center would charge for the same work done today and was shocked!!!! They wanted almost $450.00 more than what Car Care Center charged me.

The Car Care Center gave me a complete report on the needed repairs. they also gave me a priority list of what should be handled first to keep the car in serviceable use. They told me how long I could go before it would be absolutely necessary to make the other needed repairs. They were honest, and reliable . . . as in they finished the work agreed upon at the time they said it would and it came in under the easement. I highly recommend them.

They are by far the best service center I have ever used.

Lynne and Bill run an auto repair shop of exemplary stature. My automobiles have been fixed and maintained with no recurring issues. The business is family owned by two wonderful down to earth people who maintain a clean, organized shop and waiting area. Bill's knowledge of automobiles extends for over fifty years and he always has an answer for any automotive question, as well as a story or two. I very much appreciate that when I bring my vehicle to Car Care Center it will be repaired and/or maintained to the highest standard the first time, every time.

I am new to the Sacramento area and didn't have high hopes for customer service in this area. When I realized I needed the 30,000 mile maintenance on my vehicle I wondered how I would find a place that wouldn't nickel and dime me and still provide quality service. Keep in mind that friendly was optional, not a requirement. I found the Car Care Center when I googled AAA Car Care. I have been an AAA member for years and had grown to trust their approved car care vendors. Upon my arrival, Bill greeted me with a smile and provided me with a detailed list of what my service entailed. I was told it would be about 2 hours total, which I didn't mind given the type of service I requested. To my surprise, they finished in one and a half hours. I got a whole 30 minutes of my day back. If you want quality service with a smile, this is the place to go!! I won't look at sacramento the same again. Bill was truly a gem!
