Kris & Robert at Auto Medics are the best! Their work is excellent and they never try to sell you something you don't need. In fact, they find ways to help save you money. They have earned my loyalty and I highly recommend them. Kris is the owner of the business and she is on site making sure the work is done right. I have complete trust in the work that is done by Auto Medics!

Kris seemed very experienced and answered all of my questions. I had them do an all around check in order to properly maintain my Honda. They found my front brakes and rotors needing replacement- which I suspected. They also recommended shocks and struts, which I will do at a later time. A bonus is that they give you a loaner while they do the repairs. They only charge $10 for gas, due to previous customers returning the loaners without gas. I will recommend this shop to all of my friends!

by - Verified Customer May 16, 2017

Always a pleasure to deal with Kris. I really feel I can trust her, and that is rare in car repair shops.

I called late Friday afternoon and was scheduled for Monday, a while I wait appointment. I was impressed just with the scheduled service on such late notice. I asked for a quote on a maintenance replace part and I was told it wasn't needed, all of my questions were answered. This is my new auto repair shop!

It's always a pleasure to deal with the staff at Auto Medics. There's always a professional attitude offered, as well as prompt and expert service. My only problem, and this may or may not prevent me from having my leased vehicle serviced there again next time, is the bottom line. My wife and I do not put as many miles on our Honda as many people would in a given period of time, and the cost to us for a service, even with a virtually new vehicle, is beginning to seem more difficult to accept/absorb.
But, again, the crew is very helpful, personable and knowledgeable.

I got my car checked by 3 different garage and they told me different problem, when i take it to Auto Medics they told me what the car has with confidence. Other places are like ahhh we will try this and that and so on. I like that how confident and knowledge they are. It saved me lots of money and time.

My Honda Civic,1990, has been treated by Auto Medics, formerly Honda Hospital, since 1990. They have kept my car running ever since. It's engine purrs.... I would never go anywhere else for work on this car. Both the woman who runs the office and the car workers get a +10 from me, on a scale 1 to 10, where 10 is the highest.

by - Verified Customer January 08, 2017

Auto Medics worked me into their already scheduled day to replace my windshield wipers. Before I came to this shop, they clearly explained why price could be different.
A short conversation while the replacement was being made assured me that future repairs would not be made if they exceeded the value of the car. That is, they would provide an assessment - value of making a repair vs purchase of a newer car.

Unlike other mechanics, I don't feel like you're out to maximize the amount of money you can get from me. You're honest, helpful, and really know Hondas.

Very friendly, helpful, and informative staff. Work was completed on time and my car is running great!

Having had to resort to other Honda repair facilities including the nearest dealership, I would not freely choose any one but Auto Medics.

Great.

by - Verified Customer March 02, 2013

I was very pleased at the professionalism and friendly demeanor of Chris who checked my car into their system. I was also very pleased with Robert who is a real car guy. He answered all of my questions and was patient with me. Also I was very satisfied with the timing belt replacement work that was performed on my car. When the work was completed, the engine compartment was as clean as when I delivered the car to the shop. I definitely plan to return to Auto Medics when ever my car requires repair or maintenance.

Robert and Kris are the best in the business. I would not take my Honda anywhere else!

I like Auto Medics so much that I am only considering buying a new Honda, rather than another brand, tho they do repairs on all Asian brands. They always know me and seem to really know my car. Perfect servicing.

I would rather make the drive to San Mateo, than take my car to my local dealer (I own a hybrid so I am cautious about who works on it).

Having Auto Medics do your service is better than having the dealer do it because dealers do lot of unnessary services that you do not need.

Friendly people here take your car troubles and concerns seriously. Also, they have steered me to other shops of superior quality (for auto glass replacement and a body shop.) I've been taking our Hondas here for over twenty years.

Auto Medics is very good at what they do, but they are not thrifty.

by - Verified Customer January 07, 2011

They are always prompt, the car is always ready when they say it's going to be, and the cost is always what they say it will be or less.

They've changed their auto loan policy and I'm not satisfied to pay $9.95 to borrow a car for a day. I only ever have to go a short distance, and might like if they had a car available to provide ride.
