Excellent shop. They will do what is necessary very quickly, or as they promised. If they believe something has to be done, they will ask customers first, then proceed.

My car was a sports car, now it feels like cheap compact because of the clutch. It should have been replaced with the same type of clutch.

My car was repaired in two days. I had my clutch repaired, and honestly, the clutch felt better than when I bought the car. The shop was extremely gracious, and loaned me a car for those two days. This saved me a lot of money that I didn't have to spend. This is my favorite shop, and I wouldn't trust my car to anyone else.

Had a great first experience at P R Motorsports and while unfortunately, the issue resurfaced later (not entirely their fault), it was dealt with professionally and I was able to negotiate on the price of service. Overall a great Miata shop for anyone needing anything from simple repairs to performance modifications. Definitely would recommend!

by - Verified Customer January 24, 2017

Well, this was my first visit and I was greeted with a great feeling of professionalism and knowledge of what was happening with my vehicle and its needs. I would definitely seek a second opinion of services suggested, at this shop again.

Since the moment I walked in I felt welcomed and right at home. They had great staff and a killer mechanic who looked like he really enjoyed his job. I went in to get my check engine light checked out and they fixed it the same day! Just make sure to make an appointment ahead of time! Love the service! Now my 00 Miata runs better than before. I guess they gave it that magic touch! I recommend this shop to every Miata owner!

by - Verified Customer January 17, 2017

I want to thank you. Your company was so professional, respectful, timely and flexible. I even tried to reschedule my appointment the day of and you were able to accommodate my new requested time. It was wonderful!

But most of all I felt like your company was sooooo respectful of my time restraints. I was on a road trip and needed to be in Lodi by a particular time and my car was repaired, completed and parked and ready for me to go- even earlier than I had expected.

Can't say for certain until inspected unfortunately. But, do you know if the engine mounts that were installed are OEM (from the dealer), or aftermarket? I have seen some new aftermarket parts be worse than a broken OEM part. I would definitely take it back to the installer that's been doing your work to have them double check/make sure nothing was accidently left loose or if they installed a faulty mount.
I've checked the fuses and all seem g...
Your horn could be caused by a few different things, you should take it to someone you trust to have it inspected.
You don't need to worry about the timing belt replacement, as you don't have one. That year uses a chain, which is not considered a service item (you would only change it if you ever had a problem - unlikely)

As Hal Mentioned, those codes are misfire codes. The 301 & 306 means your computer sensed that the car had a misfire in the #3 & #6 cylinders, and the 300 is a 'random' code that comes up any time any misfire happens. Unfortunately, Hal is also correct that misfires often cause damage to your cars catalytic converter/s (an emissions part included in the exhaust system) but we may not know for certain right away. My shop is in Hayward, if that happens to be more convenient to your location, and we would be happy to check out the cause of your misfire for you, just give us a call or e-mail.

First off, I'm so sorry to read your story. Situations like this are unfortunate and NEVER convenient! Regarding who's right or wrong, I'm siding more with your local mechanic. Here at P R Motorsports, we ALWAYS replace the tensioner spring. The tensioner and idler bearings we inspect. If they are making any noise at all, if they spin in a way we don't like (if they are binding up, or if they spin too freely), or if there is too much visible wear at the spring contact point for the tensioner, then they are replaced. Your local mechanic mentioned a timing belt "kit" which does have the bearings included, but we've found that the quality of the aftermarket parts in the kit are sub-par compared to the OEM Honda choice so we won't use them here. The fact that your local Honda dealership isn't standing up for the choices they made in not checking/recommending this bearing be replaced while they had it apart is appalling. I wouldn't let this go if I were you, just keep moving up the seniority food chain until you find someone willing to work with you and Good Luck!

At this point I would be concerned that the engines head gasket has taken some damage. The faulty water pump may have been the initial cause of overheating, but if the head or head gasket are now damaged, the added pressure in the system could have caused the radiator to fail. You can try replacing just the water pump and radiator (and do a new thermostat as well) but be prepared ... and keep a very close eye on your fluid condition and level (both coolant and oil) and engine temps for the next month or so. If there is still a problem you'll most likely need to repair the engine - sorry.

Brake fluid is hygroscopic, meaning that it collects moisture, so it's recommended to be replaced every three years regardless of mileage - even if it looks clear, the water content will continue to rise causing early parts failure and allowing fluid to boil at lower temps.

Hi Chelsea
This is a tough one to answer ... I find I get this complaint most often after a newer car has been added to the family. The newer car stops better and so now the other car just doesn't feel like it's braking like it should. If no newer/better stopping cars have come into your life recently, then lets look at some other possible causes:
When was the last time the brake fluid system was flushed out? If it's been more than three years, bleeding this system can sometimes improve pedal feel.
A failing master cylinder can also cause this. Try pumping the brake pedal a few times when coming to a stop, if the pedal feel improves your brake master may have an internal leak.
And finally, the rear brakes may be out of adjustment - this can also effect brake pedal feel.
If you would like us to check it out, or just have additional questions about your Yaris, feel free to give us a call!

had it and the water pump replaced at 100k.
The 4 cylinder Tacoma's have a timing chain, but the V6 engine has a belt that is recommended to be replaced every 90,000 miles (or 10 years - whichever comes first).
