Flexible appointment time, discount on first time receiving a service. They called to update when service will be completed and transportation offered while waiting.

They were excellent people, and my car is fixed.

Verified CustomerOctober 27, 2014

Thanks for the ride to BART! That was very helpful and convenient, and you have a friendly and cheerful driver. Also the battery replacement, oil change, and headlight replacement seem to be working well for me. Mostly I'm just happy you gave me the ride to and from BART!

Great service, good folks, but no weekend hours and confusing/awkward coupons/discounts might put friends off.

Verified CustomerAugust 15, 2014

Great Service!

August 08, 2014

Cost of the work was a little pricier than expected. Some scuffs on the hood of my car appear to be from setting tools down on the vehicle (though I can't prove it).

Verified CustomerAugust 04, 2014

I think the employees there as well as Marty are fair and try to accommodate me.

Verified CustomerJune 13, 2014

Always a good experience.

Marty and Todd have always been very helpful and extremely cool.

Verified CustomerMay 13, 2014

Phenomenal service - very reliable and honest. It's just very expensive...

November 15, 2012

Great service, nice people, reliable. The place is a little more expensive but I can always get in very timely. They gave me a ride home. They're very professional. They gave me a follow up. I'm just very satisfied.

Verified CustomerNovember 09, 2012

Marty's Motors is excellent!!

November 06, 2012

I had been very satisfied with Marty's, up until last July or August..immediately after the service, 2 things were at a lower function than before the service. Marty's has denied responsibility for these. Still working to resolve.

My wife and I have consistently been extremely satisfied with the quality of the service we receive at Marty's Motors and have made this abundantly clear to Marty and Todd on numerous occasions. However, being asked to repeat surveys such as this is just a bit bothersome. Thank you for your efforts to ensure quality service. We do really appreciate that! Jim Wright

Thanks to Marty's Motors for their great customer service!

October 26, 2012

They did a good job.

Verified CustomerOctober 26, 2012

They also teach women's class on auto and it's a good class. I think other women should take it. I'm really satisfied with their work and they've always been courteous and fair.

Verified CustomerOctober 09, 2012

I am an older person. I don't drive a lot and they seem interested in keeping my car going. They give me a ride home and back, and I feel really good about it.

Verified CustomerOctober 09, 2012

Downright honest with their pricing.

September 21, 2012

Marty's did what I had asked Toyota to do 4 or 5 times. They did an inspection for pending/preventation and current needed repiars on my 14 year old Toyota. I will stay with Marty's forever and never go back to Toyota repair again. My SUV runs like a top now, with no unexplained noises!

September 20, 2012

They are very friendly and nice!

September 19, 2012

The service is good, timely, professional. The problem I have with Marty's Motors is all the marketing materials and contact via email after a service. Makes me want to not go there in order to avoid the onslaught of these reminders and surveys.

Verified CustomerSeptember 14, 2012

The only neg. comment was a phone call to Marty's re. the cost to replace a head-light. The conversation was not what I would call user frendly.

Was told to bring my car in really early one morning so that I could get it back quickly. No major repairs done, just a diagnostic. It wound up taking most of the day and I had to keep calling to check on the progress. I would be told that someone would call me by a certain time and I would wait and wait with no return call. Finally I would just call in only to be told that they had not yet gotten to my car. Finally late in the day, after I had called back yet again, I was given a laundry list of repairs that they said needed to be done but by then I was pretty frustrated and just wanted my car back.
