Above dealer level service ! We employ ASE certified master techs! Our technicians are constantly trained. Not all independent shops are the same... We have factory diagnostic/programming equipment for BMW, MINI, Porsche, Volvo, Mercedes, Jaguar, Range Rover, VW/Audi, Saab, GM, Ford, and the list goes on. An Independent NEVER had so much diagnostic capability! Free loaner car when available.

RepairPal's Assesment
Our review of Portola Valley Garage revealed a very experienced team of technicians who have been working together for many years. Their team includes six technicians, including three ASE certified techs, with a total of 166 years of experience between them. Portola Valley Garage has perhaps the most extensive assortment of factory level scan tools we have seen from any of our Certified shops, which contributed to the perfect score in the Technical Ability section of the survey. If you decide to wait while your vehicle is being serviced, wireless internet access is available in their comfortable waiting room. A shuttle service is available if you find yourself in need of a ride.
