My car failed DE inspection. I went straight to Melvins. They took my car in and fixed the problems right then so I could go back to DMV and renew my tags. Thank you Jose!

After a diagnostics check the problem was explained to me and I was given a fair estimate to do the repair. I found Jose to be very knowledgeable and he took the time to explain the repair that was needed

Pointed out other repairs that need maintenance. Noticed other recent work that was done but seems to be a problem. Glad they recognized and brought to my attention.

Good quality and friendly service. Very high priced for a small shop. Should have gone to the dealer shop for the price I paid.

We brought our car into the shop for an oil change. We appreciate the service that we receive from Melvins -- we hold them in the highest esteem.
