Sammi has always treated me fairly and with respect. I appreciate all of the people at Hillmuth. Always excellent customer service
They all have welcoming personalities but they charge an insane amount. I only found out after paying that they had overcharged me. The dealership for my car said they would've done it for less and with OEM parts. So I paid more money for worse parts from Hillmuth. They are nice people but after finding out that they basically conned me, i think its safe to assume that they don't respect their customers.
Took care in for routine oil change and 75k checkup. Found a few minor issues and got the car back the same day and is running better than when I dropped off. I feel very comfortable that Hillmuth will keep my 2010 Rav4 running like new for many years to come.
Sami and John should both get raises
Very nice people
Staff was very nice.
Dave Tear is an excellent machanic
Always excelent service at Hillmuth
The tuneup was good as the car runs much smoother than when I took it in. Also the brake light on the dashboard does not come on spontaneously as it used to. Thanks.
Great customer service!
Sammy hospitality was great..
Excellent service and family atmosphere. They go the extra distance to make sure you have a great experience.

SAMI IS THE BEST. GREAT PLACE TO BE. COFFEE IS GOOD AND THE DONUTS ARE GREAT.
Very friendly and helpful, especially with offer for a ride home while repairs were in progress.
Sami is wonderful and I trust him completely. We have another mechanic whose prices are better, but Hillmuth is close to home and Sami is a good representative.
Work done well and quickly.

Fast Repair, and had a loaner car available.
I really appreciate the attentive care I receive from the service advisors, including explanations of the work needed - and which matters are urgent and which can be postponed. I feel I am treated as a friend and Hillmuth strives to provide honest and professional service at a reasonable price.
They are very honest they do not try to rip you off their repair work is excellent with a great warranty.
As usual, pleasant and efficient.

Excellent customer service! Hillmuth correctly diagnosed and repaired my car problem that other auto shops could not. My car runs better now than it has in the past 5 years!
Professional, on time and courteous. I don't have to worry about the job being done to my satisfaction.
Great costumer service.
The owner Doug Hilmuth personally took interest in getting my repair right.
That's a good score I grade very hard
Provide excellent if a little pricey.
They were incredibly professional, and explained everything I needed - and importantly, what I didn't need!
I have been taking my cars there for almost 20 years and have always had a great experience. The talk to you like a person and not a mechanic so that it is understood for the repairs that needs to be performed on your vehicle. I will always have my vehicles serviced at Hillmuth unless something drastically change, meaning service, pricing, etc.
The service was timely and excellent!
Hillmuth's have provided above and beyond service to us for the last 15 years!
The associate was very dishonest with me and tried to swindle/con me out of $1700 of service that could have been done for free under my 5 year 100k factory warranty. I took my car in for an engine sound and mentioned that it may be covered by my 100,000 mile warranty. He told me he called Chrysler and they told him it was not covered because my warranty was 5 year 60k and I was at 61k miles and they would charge more than his $1700 quote. I called the dealership and they informed me that it was covered and it would be free because I was covered up until 100k miles. I called the Hillmuth rep on three way and his story changed. He informed the dealership rep and me that he said the warranty doesn't work with him but he would do the work for me for a discounted price but if I wanted it done by Chrysler, I would have to go there to get it done. I asked him why did his story change. He told me he thought I just preferred Hillmuth to do it. He never called Chrysler to check anything and tried to lie about the call and our conversation. BAD BUSINESS ETHICS... I basically paid $85 for him to confirm the problem I said I was having with my car and for him to lie to me to get more money.
First of all,I would like to state that our company has been in business for 36 plus years. You do not reach that level by having "BAD BUSINESS ETHICS".We value every sale as would any business ,but not at the expense of our reputation. Whenever there is a possibility of any manufacturer warranty coverage we always try to get that info by calling the dealer ourselves for the customer. When there is warranty coverage left we always urge our clients to use it so there will be no expense to them. We are only able to go with information provided to us by the dealer.Sometime it may not be correct information. Again, we always try to have our clients best interests at heart.
Hillmuth is awesome! The staff are kind, courteous, and professional. Most of all, they are honest and reliable.
The work, that needed to be done was done correctly and I didn't have to go back for the same complaint like I've had to do at other service centers. And besides I know Doug!
They are friendly, efficient, and prompt.
excellent service, extremely helpful staff
Sami and Mike are honest and very informative.
