We have found the team of technicians at Orinda Motors to be a very qualified and experienced group, most of whom have been working together for many years. Three of the four technicians are ASE certified, with two having achieved ASE Master Technician status. This shop has also demonstrated to us a commitment to ongoing technician training, which we value very highly. Orinda Motors is located in an area populated by many other businesses.

It's nice to be back at Orinda Motors. I hadn't been there for eight years. We had a couple of Ford vehicles. They were sold. I got a Toyota, and I decided to go back to Orinda Motors because it's closer, and I was happy with their service before.

I think they are expensive. I go to them because it's convenient. Sometimes I worry that they find every little thing and so I have to ask them: "what would you do on your car?" because they could come up with 4000 things to do on my car and if it's not a safety issue, I probably don't want to do it. I have had to ask them for that a couple of times. They are nice guys. They support the community, which I appreciate, and I will continue to go there because they are convenient.

Orinda Motors did a great job for me on my recent Volvo 45K minor service check. Customer service was great - they dropped me off and picked me up at my house nearby, making the experience easy to manage as a stay at home mom. The price seemed fair and my Volvo is running great.

These guys are not the cheapest shop around but they know their stuff and make sure your car's fixed right and you are happy.
