I'll been to a lot of shops to get my vechicle fix but none of them have any idea what's seems to be the problem. I had to pay for diagnostic but all of them said they couldn't help me, I'm so glad & happy that I found your shop. I really appreciated the job that he did. I recommend your shop for excellent reputations, trustworthy, honesty, quality of work, punctuality, & most of all 'The Best' repair shop I ever been. Thank you for letting me know the rest of the problem for my car. I definitely go back to get the rest of the problem to get fix. Thank you so much...

John was awesome! Great information, promises kept and the car seems wonderful

Great shop very honest

by - Verified Customer December 19, 2017

Really like this shop. Always busy but do not over promise. Female but do not feel patronized.

by - Verified Customer December 17, 2017

John is a great person/mechanic/ owner of Tuolumne Auto Repair and Electric. Honest and polite. This is the 3rd time bringing our autos to John for service and we like the fact that does the work he says he'll be doing and not trying to get more from you. Wevrecommended John to our friends and will keep doing so as long as we're here in Vallejo and John is too.

by - Verified Customer October 19, 2017

I just moved from San Francisco where I used the same mechanic for 20 years. I was very impressed with John's quick deduction of the problem and his quality of work. I found his shop by accident just driving by. I am so very happy to have found a car mechanic in Vallejo that I feel I can trust and who respects me. It is hard for a woman to find a mechanic who explains the work and instills trust.

by - Verified Customer October 11, 2017

the owner is devoted to a good and fair work. I trust him completely, especially because I am older and a woman. I have been cheated before or given unreal quotes, it is not the case with John, he always explained before the work and after, and his prices are very competitive. a pleasure to work with him

by - Verified Customer October 03, 2017

John runs a great shop. I was kept informed every step of the way. The quality of work was done above what i expected....i will bring my cars back to John when work is needed.

by - Verified Customer October 01, 2017

John is always very friendly and helpful and the car is always serviced well.

by - Verified Customer September 26, 2017

They were able to get my car in with short noitice, told me exactly what was wrong with the price. Kept me informed with emails and calls, and managed to get the parts to have it fixed the next day. Very happy with this business. Will definitely be going there again for any other repairs.

by - Verified Customer September 04, 2017

Every thing is fine.

i just got my car back so i haven't had the chance to drive it much yet, but i have been going to Tuolumne Auto for several years now

by - Verified Customer August 16, 2017

Great customer service they always explain to you the issue and breakdown material cost/labor. I've been taking my truck to Tuolumne for 2 years never had to have them address an issue twice,which car was serviced for. Great honest mechanic.

by - Verified Customer August 13, 2017

Always do a great job, and never feel they do repairs that are not needed. Explains what has to be done and why.

by - Verified Customer August 08, 2017

Updates given throughout the procedure, delay for parts was honestly explained, no extra charges for overnight storage, and updates were often either by person to person phone or detailed message on voicemail. Very honest shop.

by - Verified Customer August 06, 2017

Happy that I have found a shop that will not take advantage of my lack of car knowledge and suggest unnecessary repairs. I hope this is for keeps!

by - Verified Customer August 06, 2017

by - Verified Customer August 04, 2017

Return of vehicle was delayed by wrong parts being delivered. And work did not begin promptly upon drop off of vehicle. My vehicle was dropped off on Monday morning 8am and did not get looked at unroll Wednesday thus a eight day repair is what happened

by - Verified Customer August 02, 2017

The shop solved the electrical problem as promised. Need I say more?

by - Verified Customer July 23, 2017

I know I can trust John, he has always done great work on our cars.

by - Verified Customer July 19, 2017

Always a good experience

by - Verified Customer July 19, 2017

John was very pleasant and direct. He took time to explain the problem with my car. John even took the time to make a minor correction to clear an invalid dash warnIng light that was not planned.

by - Verified Customer July 18, 2017

Belt replacement recommended, but when taken to a different shop for a problem, belt checked and told okay.

by - Verified Customer July 10, 2017

by - Verified Customer June 11, 2017

Hated having to take the car to the dealer for warranty repair, but felt good to know that John had already troubleshot and no hanky-panky was possible.

by - Verified Customer June 08, 2017

John McClaughlin was able to fit me in during my work day and accommodate me with a ride. I feel the work is reliable and I am treated fairly.

by - Verified Customer June 07, 2017

by - Verified Customer June 06, 2017

Process of elimination, the problem was diagnosed and repaired.

by - Verified Customer June 05, 2017

did a good job, happy with results

by - Verified Customer June 01, 2017

Just a simple 'thank you' for a repair job well done.

by - Verified Customer May 23, 2017

I've always had fabulous experiences at this location. The owner is so friendly and good natured and the services are done quickly, with fair prices. I highly recommend!

by - Verified Customer May 22, 2017

They worked hard to find a difficult to diagnose problem. Would recommend.

by - Verified Customer May 16, 2017

Quick, respectful, accurate. I would recommend this shop to anyone. Great guys!

by - Verified Customer May 12, 2017

These are the guys to take your car to for anything electrical related. Most mechanics don't have the electrical troubleshooting skills needed. Tuolumne isn't cheap, but they are efficient so you probably end up paying less in that they can get to the problem faster than a typical auto mechanic.

by - Verified Customer May 11, 2017

Competent, efficient, friendly, and most of all, trustworthy.

by - Verified Customer May 10, 2017

John is unsurpassed in diagnosis and repair of domestic and foreign cars. We recommend him without hesitation. He gets approval at each step of the process, and keeps costs down wherever possible. We feel fortunate to have found a mechanic with his skills, and trust him with all our vehicles.

Great people and excellent work!

by - Verified Customer April 18, 2017

John does excellent work and most importantly he is honest! He's been our mechanic for at least 10 years now and we have no reason to consider using anyone else. We've been ripped off at the dealerships more than once. John has found the problem and we were able to confront the dealership and make them repair it a no cost to us. John Rocks!!

by - Verified Customer April 12, 2017

Very pleased with the professional image given from a shop in Vallejo ca.

by January 09, 2015

Good service.

by - Verified Customer January 08, 2015

I was able to get emergency service that day, and the owner was very friendly and understanding. There was an error with my phone and I didn't receive his call after the preliminary check, so instead of just waiting he sent an email to contact me. It was very thoughtful. They also did a quick check over my cars fluids and systems and let me know what I might need done in the future.
