I was treated very professionally. I was also shown the old replaced parts and the mechanics explained why the part was worn out.

Verified CustomerMarch 22, 2013

All the work was explained and they were vey friendly and helpful.

Verified CustomerMarch 22, 2013

I was surprised that they said I needed the cabin air filter replaced. It was replaced 6000 miles earlier & I thought that cabin filters generally had longer longevity.

Verified CustomerMarch 20, 2013

EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!

March 05, 2013

Always well treated(baked goodies are an added bonus!!)and repairs/oil change done in a timely matter. Phone call as followup also adds a personal touch. Nice to go home with a well cared for clean car. Hillside owners do lots of good advertising for charity events in the community plus they support good causes.

It's a great feeling to know that only necessary work is being done & the confidence to know you are dealing with honest & capable people!

Verified CustomerFebruary 25, 2013

Great service.

February 22, 2013

I had a lube, oil & filter change and was also informed drive belts should be replaced. When I inquired if brakes had been checked I was assured they were fine. However, on a follow-up to another auto service shop to pass smog inspection, noise in brakes prompted inspection and discovery of 1mm rotor and need to replace pads and rotors. I would have expected this problem to have been reported if the 3000 mile service special had been performed as reported. I was both surprised and disappointed at this significant oversight from such a highly-regarded auto service facility.

Mike is great and provides wonderful service. Prices are just a bit high compared to other places but service makes a big deal to me...

February 09, 2013

They made an effort to please the costumer and provide a good service!

Verified CustomerFebruary 08, 2013

Completely satisfied...highly recommended.

Verified CustomerFebruary 07, 2013

They do it right the first time.

Verified CustomerJanuary 25, 2013

My repair required a reset on-board computer. It would be useful to know how many miles must be driven before one can pass the CA smog test following the reset. Cheers, Bill

I actually enjoyed the waiting room. Coffee, bottled water, plenty of magazines to read. It was a nice place to wait for my car.

Verified CustomerJanuary 19, 2013

Hillside Auto recommended a service that i did not request when i took my car in. I reluctantly agreed, not sure if it was really necessary. The service made an incredible difference in the performance of my car! It was like it was brand new again! I was so happy they recommended it, and now I know they do not recommend unnecessary repairs.

Was overcharged for parts and labor to replace a sensor. $250 for sensor, $250 for labor. Hillside bought the part from a local dealership. I went to the dealership and got a printout for same sensor for $69. Spoke to owner of Hillside. He said the dealership lied.

February 15, 2009

Absolutely first rate work and customer care. They solved a problem that the Lexus dealership couldn't. P.S. How many shops call you back after a couple of days to make sure that everything was to your satisfaction? Hillside does.
