Assessment Summary

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. If you need transportation after dropping off your vehicle, they offer a shuttle service and rental cars. Should you decide to wait, wireless internet access is available in their comfy waiting room. Their express oil change and tire center is open on Saturdays from 9 to 4pm.

Really good service, but a little on the pricey side.

I'm extremely satisfied, and they do very good work. Very friendly. Easy to work with. They have rental car service, which I took advantage of.

Fabulous. Very helpful. Went through all the issues with my car with me. Was done on time and it was cheaper than I thought.

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.
