Would recommend this shop to anyone.

by - Verified Customer December 15, 2017

All good!

by - Verified Customer December 14, 2017

I trust George implicitly always fair, always on time and not the cheapest and he shouldn't be......because the ones that are have to cut corners to accomplish that. You won't find that happening at JEV.

by - Verified Customer December 11, 2017

As always- great work from Jorge and team. This last repair was a major one on my '02 Audi- but it was handled in a great way, on budget and on time.

by - Verified Customer December 07, 2017

Jorge and his team are reliable and honest folks. I know I am in good hands when I leave my car with them.

by - Verified Customer November 27, 2017

J.E.V. Automotive provides excellent service. George is a very knowledgeable and nice guy and has put together a team of skilled techs that I trust completely to maintain my BMW e46. I wouldn't go anywhere else in the North Bay for automotive service or support. J.E.V also provides many value add services such as complete service history available securely online and email/text updates regarding service progress with photos of the work being done. I highly recommend J.E.V. Automotive to anyone in the North Bay that is looking for a quality shop to maintain their German import.

J.E.V is great.

My experience with them has been nothing but positive and I recommend them to anyone in the Novato area.

by - Verified Customer October 30, 2017

I had a great experience at J.E.V - Jorge quickly provided a quote and my service and that is exactly how much the service cost. He is always respectful and very easy to work with. I will continue to bring my car in for service at J.E.V. Automotive.

by - Verified Customer October 30, 2017

Always wonderful service and you fixed my car in record timing. I am so happy with the quality of service and how you explain things. Thank you so much - JEV is my go-to always.

by - Verified Customer October 26, 2017

I played the shop owner Jorge a recording of the strange noise coming from my car and he knew right away what the problem was and promptly fixed it.

by - Verified Customer October 25, 2017

Clean shop! Fair pricing, and respectful review of car and work performed. They worked with my schedule and offered transport to and from my local office.

I m always very pleased with the work they do to my car

by - Verified Customer October 18, 2017

The respect from this shop was amazing. Jorge, or George, was very kind and explained things well and treated me very kindly. The process was good and easy. I paid for a PPI and had them look over a car that I was trying to buy that was out of state. I live in Seattle and the car was in San Fran California. They were able to look at the car bumper to bumper and made sure all the maintenance was good and that the car was in a well working condition. There were a few things missed on the interior, like a small tear, scratch, the push to start button was chipped, and the shifter knob was broken, but those things are really something to look at when making sure the car won't break. The only thing I would say is a little off is the price. at $209.00 dollars you would want perfection. While I give you guys a great score of 8/10 I really wish the brakes were looked at closer, as the rotors needed replacement by the time I got home. There was a recall for the airbags, and for the emissions. And the interior pieces. I still bought the car, and I love it. But I wish that it was in the 10/10 shape that the shop said it was in. The car is about a 8.5/10. But I appreciate it and while there is a little but of wondering, I still feel very comfortable buying the car after it was looked at. Also the exhaust system has a leak on the flex pipe, which I think should have been noted too.
