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.

by March 12, 2012

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.
