It started poorly when I was told by 3 different people that they would let me know the issue within 2 - 2.5 hours. No call the whole day, so I waited over 24 hours before I contacted them just so I didn't come off as pushy, but that didn't seem to matter because the guy on the phone seemed agitated that I called anyway. So they tell me they will know within another 2.5 hours. They call back 2 hours later and ask if they can charge me for a diagnostic test meaning they still didn't check into my car. I say yes, they say they'll let me know in about 2 hours, so once again no word from them and I decided to wait until the next day before calling. Day 3: they call me and tell me all the work that needs to be done, and of course its way more than my car needed at the time because I was able to knock a couple thousand off just by asking what was necessary. No big deal, I get that they want to find everything wrong with your car and fix it, but it was an extreme coincidence that my car that I have had for over 2 years and i park in the same spot everyday in front of my house with zero oil on the asphalt is now leaking oil and requires a new oil control valve solenoid and valve cover gasket. Fine, things happen and I'm genuinely not blaming them. They also told me I needed to replace my windshield wipers and they tell me it should be $25. Once again not a problem, save me the time, so I authorize it. They then called back 20 minutes later and told me my windshield wipers would cost over $65 because they were special(?) and they didn't have them in the shop. So I stifled my laughter, said no thanks, and bought a 2 pack on Amazon for 20 bucks. They also told me that one of my tires needed to be replaced, so i authorized that as well. But when i got the car i see that they have charged me $146 (labor included) for a used tire (which they did not specify) and they charged me for a tire protection plan that I did not authorize. The thing I went in to get fixed cost $37 without labor and I left paying almost $900 after 4 days. Needless to say the whole experience left a sour taste in my mouth and will not be returning.

Paid for a diagnostic. Over$200. No problem here. The issue turned out to be a relay and I was charged $80 labor to replace the relay. $80 for a 5 minute job? The ethical model would include a labor credit or prorate the labor to 5 minutes. It was not a true 30 minute job. Not a good experience. I ll be sure to dissuade potential customers from working with them.

Hi Sam, I'm sorry to see that you were unhappy with the charge. I would like to let you know that we charge based on whats called book time as most shops do. That is what the charge for labor is based on and its more than 5 minutes.

Jason and team always take care of me even when I had to bring mine or my wife's vehicle in with no notice.

Found them on a quick google search. Close to my home. They were a little more than my usual mechanic, however Jason and staff were very friendly and professional.

Overall, I'm satisfied with the work.

Brought my car in for a repeat visit and regular service. Unfortunately, an oil change wasn't done, nor was the oil checked. I left with the 'needs maintenance ' light still glowing on the dash, which was very disappointing since this shop is usually more thorough. I just don't understand how I could bring it in for the regular service that they recommend via the stickers on the inner windshield and have them overlook the basics. Now, I have to go back to have them finish the job that should have been done the first visit. Very inconvenient.
Verified Customer
Very friendly and professional. I do wish I could see doctor and patient together to discuss treatment.

Excellent service for a fair price.

New to NorCal and finding a mechanic was a very daunting task. Took a chance on a Google review and I am very happy I did. Wouldn't take my cars to anyone else.
