I went here for a diagnostic check. This shop went above and beyond yo check everything. Thanks especially to shawn I think.

Thanks Tom and Sue for the great service. I have a 12 year old vehicle that I've worked very hard to maintain but after that many years it was time to do the brakes and diagnose some other issues. I did my own research as to the possible causes of the other issues and the team and Standard Auto care diagnosed it properly, offered a solution, and fixed the problem. I'll be back for future repairs as needed!

Sean worked on my car's problem (a blown fuse) until he figured out why it blew, then continued working on the situation until he was satisfied it would not recur.

by - Verified Customer August 30, 2017

Sue was extremely patient with me as I needed to call back a few time while at work. She was very kind to try to help me find different options of parts that can save me money. Standard Auto CAre is very lucky to have her!

I had a wheel alignment done with Standard Auto Care - Tom's team kept me in the loop with regard to all work that was going to be performed on my car. Its hard to find an auto shop in Sacramento that provides honest and trustworthy car maintenance. They delivered an outstanding service and it is very likely that I will be taking my car back to them in the near future.

I took my car into the shop around 9:45 am for a smog and expected it back in the pm. Surprised I got a call maybe an hour or 2 after I dropped it off and my car was ready. WOW!!! Great service!!

Waited to review shop until I took my car to get it smogged. The technician that worked on my car was right on with diagnosis. Will surely use this shop for future problems and recommend them to friends. It's nice to know there are repair shops that are honest and reliable.

Two previous mechanics utterly failed to help me find the fault making my check engine light stay on. Standard Auto fixed it for me the same day I brought it to them!

The shop had my vehicle for almost 3 weeks due to a number of mishaps, most of which were not their fault. The first Dodge dealer they sent the truck to said they didn't know the truck was there (it sat for 3 days) and then said they didn't work on vehicles over 10 years old. And this was a Dodge dealer?? All in all, I was very pleased with the shop.

Great place to go. Friendly staff. I really like the fact that they will tow your car for free. I also like the fact that they will drop you off and pick you up within the Sacramento area.

They were great. We had a few delays, due to needing different parts and waiting on those to come in, but overall it was wonderful.

I do wish that I had been informed of the need for an oil change before I came in to pick up the car. I would've authorized that as an additional service.

I'm also noticing a few other things that are wrong with my vehicle, and I was hoping that everything that was wrong would be identified so it could be fixed the first time. Small things like my turn signal not working, and my emergency brake release seems extremely loose. (As the vehicle was taken without my permission and driven by another person, I assume they messed up these things.)

I'd love to bring my car back in for additional service, and hopefully not have to come back for a long while. I truly appreciate all of the help your shop has provided.

I was greeted when I arrived. My car was inspected, a report was given, I already knew what the problem was, and their report was correct. I was offered a vehicle so I did not have to rent one. The owner took the time to answer my questions. I had an excellent experience at Standard Auto Care.

I really wish they didn't fail my smog on a visual. It was the first failure I've had, I was so disappointed. Why not tell me so I could have them fix it first. I had just asked Tom the owner if there was any pretest we could do so I wouldn't run the chance of failing. Nothing else was wrong with the car everything else passed. I mean there were only 4 people in the business. Its not a big business. It would have been a simple favor for your customer. Just disappointed.

Very friendly and professional staff. I brought my jeep into Standard Auto without an appointment to put a battery in and they performed this task quickly - within twenty minutes. Very impressive.

by - Verified Customer January 09, 2017

Way too expensive. Basically I needed a tune up & a couple small things done. They were going to charge me over $500 for new spark plugs & wires. I had it done for $260 at econo tune. The other thing that needed to be done was way over priced as well. Altogether they wanted 1400. For a gasket, fuel injector & tune up. No thank u.

My car was in for damage somewhere in the undercarriage as a result of running over road debris. The damage wasn't obvious, only a vibrating sound when the car is idling. Standard Auto Care located the issue, a bent heat shield (just a small metal plate) and reshaped it (with little effort) and sent me on my way. Minimal charge for labor, without any unnecessary work done (like many places tend to do), found and corrected the right problem. I originally found Standard Auto Care because of their high ratings and now I am a faithful customer too.
