I have a 2007 Toyota Prius and I used to get it serviced at the dealership. I have not heard great things about the Toyota dealers in this area and a friend recommended Toy Auto Clinic. I have had bad experiences with mechanics in the past, haven't we all, but Brian at Toy Auto Clinic is personable and helpful. His prices are better than the dealership and I really felt like he listened to me and asked the right questions. He took the time to look the car over while I was there and answer my concerns and questions.
He didn't have the part on site and had to get it from a dealer because Prius parts are still hard to find, but he had it at his shop in the time it took me to walk down the street and have lunch. (at most half an hour) Prior to this repair, I called to find out if it was something they could do because everyone was telling me I HAD to go to the dealer for a Prius repair, but he was helpful and answered my questions and told me to come in any time. I didn't feel that I was getting the brush off that dealers often give you on the phone. Great service, friendly, helpful, great prices. Even though this is a little far from my house, this is where I am taking my car for all repairs from now on!
I took my '96 Toyota Tercel here for a clutch job on a friend's recommendation. My first impression of the shop was that it's very clean. The tech was also very knowledgeable and was able to explain to me what was going on in terms I could actually understand. When I got my car back, I was very pleased with the work. I couldn't even tell that something had been wrong with it. I even got a complimentary vacuum and wash! I will definitely be passing on the recommendation to other fellow Toyota owners!
Brought in my Lexus RX300 for a check engine light problem. They checked and diagnosed my problem for free. Brian answered all my questions and surprisingly he encouraged me to call the dealer and other shops to insure the quote was competitive. I ended up doing the work with them and now I am off to a check only smog station. Thanks Toy Auto Clinic!
