Brian treated me exceptionally well - listened to my explanation of the issue, talked me out of a more expensive option (that his shop could do), then did the less expensive option exceptionally well. I will be keeping my truck another 5 years, since I have found someone I completely trust to keep it running well at a fair price.

Went in for oil change and they found other things that needed attention. Explained to me what was needed and why.

by - Verified Customer November 20, 2017

The vehicle had to be taken in a second time as the check engine light came on again. That was the reason why it was first repaired. There was an additional problem that surfaced and it was not detected the 1st time. We are hoping problem has been resolved now.

We are planning to drive up to Santa Cruz and back so I like to have the car checked before we leave on a long drive. We made a reservation with Brian for Saturday morning which was great! He has been taking care of our various cars for 10+ years and we have never had any trouble with any repair or maintenance work done by him and or the rest of the crew at the shop. We are always treated with courtesy and respect and we both love Brian. He's a great guy and takes very good care of us always. We are senior citizens and very well appreciate the quality of service we get at Bob's. Hard to find these days at other locations.

Brian wants to make sure everything is right. He doesn't sugar-coat it, but tells you exactly what is wrong and how it should be fixed. I appreciate that.

Went in for an electrical issue, I like the fact that Brian, and Rick explain the easy case scenario to what could be the worst case and cost scenario. No pressure, they just want a simple yes or no to perform the work. They always explain what was performed when I pick up my car. In addition they are glad to give me a courtesy ride home after dropping of my car.

My car being a 64 Valiant, seemingly rare. Went in originally for starting issues. Other problems and parts that I've neglected over the years finally creeped up on me. They pointed it out and made sure they had the go ahead from me to get er' done. That we did and a few set backs, with many and old cars alike. They got her done and she is sound and purrs like a kitten and handles great!
Thanks Again to all you guys at Bob's Automotive!
I'll certainly bring my baby back when it comes to the big repairs!

After receiving vehicle from a clutch replacement (to date is still ok) the oxygen sensor had been dented and was causing the MIL to come on and I was charged for a new repair. The old part was not returned to me for inspection until I paid the bill.

I had my car serviced for regular oil change. It was found that the spark plugs were rusting and I could always feel like they have my back. I have been going there for about 15 years for my car. I know the mechanics very well and I trust the work they perform.
