Fair and expert service

Verified CustomerOctober 23, 2013

There was one issue where I needed another repair done and they did not call me back on it.

Verified CustomerOctober 16, 2013

My car had multiple problems for a long time and the repair only took one day, it was repaired beyond my expectations. I also had engine problems and knew that I would have to schedule another appointment but they combined both visits and provided a free shuttle when my car was ready. They were all very friendly and know what they are doing.

September 27, 2012

Scott and staff treated me with honesty, courtesy and professionalism. I brought my car in with what I thought would be a major repair and he was very honest with me when it turned out to be almost nothing. The shop is very clean and they seem to have excellent diagnostic tools and worked very quickly to determine the problem. I was able to get my car back the same day, a first for me in many years of auto ownership.
The shop is not easily seen from the street, but well worth the hunt!

I have taken several vehicles of all makes and sizes to Scott at Folsom Auto Center over the last twenty years. All repairs or services have been satisfactorily performed with an explanation of what needs to be done, why it is needed and a cost analysis of the alternatives. All parts replaced are saved for inspection and a warranty comes with each repair. Customers are treated with TLC. Scott and his staff will have you returning as repeat customers because of the treatment received. JW - Folsom
