After reading other reviews and talking to another customer I felt confident with their business. Finding and trusting an auto repair shop can be difficult. I am pleased with the work done and it was a fair price.

Verified CustomerJune 07, 2013

I've been going to RM Automotive for a few years now. The service provided is top notch and questions are answered with options suited to your needs.

Verified CustomerMay 31, 2013

RM Automotive is a very professional Japanese car repair service. The service is like the Dealer but the price is cheaper. I have never had any single problem or have been unhappy about their work performance for many years since I've been their customer. Honestly, I am not related or a direct friend with them so this is an unbiased review.

They solved the problem I had and did a complete and thorough check of the car. Advised me of upcoming preventative maintenance with no sales pressure. Great job! Will be back.

Verified CustomerApril 29, 2013

I would refer anyone to take their car to this shop if you are within the area. In summary, Excellent and Friendly Service, Knowledgeable, Free Shuttle Service within the area, Free Refreshments, and Free car loaner (if car maintenance/service takes longer than a day). The major differences between RM and my dealer are: 1) Price and 2) Free loaner and carwash at my Dealer. I rather save money and get comparable or even better car/customer service at RM than get a free loaner and carwash at the dealer. Savings and Quality of car/customer service means a lot to me.

Verified CustomerApril 26, 2013

Good service. Knowledgeable staff. Made reccomendations but did not feel pressured to do anything.

April 25, 2013

Great service and price. If the dealership price is too high, try RM Automotive for their free courtesy diagnosis and you won't be disappointed.

My experience has been excellent. I appreciate their attention to detail, expertise and the quality, personable service.

RM keeps on top of the maintenance and service for our vehicles. They recommend when work is required and will schedule it over a period of time. The work is excellent, any corrections are done immediately. They charge a fair price, always less than the dealership.

Verified CustomerApril 03, 2013

Their repairs are done well, their shop is really clean, their staff members are really polite, and they do a lot of favors for you like driving you to work or renting a car for you. They also take the time to explain to you what went wrong with the car and why they are doing certain repairs. They even cover their own repairs with a long warranty. I don't know of any other shop that does all these things. Their service is incomparable.

Verified CustomerApril 03, 2013

Great service , cheaper Than a dealer. Uses genuine Honda products, nice , courteous service .

They did my oil change cheaper than Jiffy Lube.

Verified CustomerAugust 16, 2012

What I like about them is that they're straight forward and they're honest. I don't have to go back a second time. They do it right the first time. The technicians do what needs to be done right, the first time.

I have been driving out of my way (20+ miles!) for over 10 years to patronize RM. Great shop, friendly & competent service.

Verified CustomerAugust 15, 2012

I wish the dealer had been so kind, quick and reasonably priced. I wish the dealer had not tried to convince me that my front brakes were at 2mm when they are are 3.5mm, and have thousands of miles left before needing replacements.

Very professional, work is done well and on time.

May 15, 2012

While I didn't feel pressured at that time to make repairs that weren't needed, the suggestions I got for the next visit included several expensive repairs, that I was told after I asked enough questions, that it was a safety necessity, but a comfort thing for the most expensive one, but those expensive repair suggestions put up a concern for me.

April 28, 2010

All I have to say is this is a top notch shop in every way possible. I have been coming here for years, and they are the only ones I will trust to work on my car.

John always helps me through the whole process of service on my car. He gives me a rental if needed and will even shuttle me to work or home if I do not need a rental car. Hell if I need John when the shop is not open I can call him on his cell phone(which I have had to do on occasion) where else do you get that kind of service?

As I said earlier these guys are top notch and are always there to help me, I think of them as friends and not just a place I get my car serviced. I can without hesitation send all my friends and family here and know they will be well taken care of.
