Luscious Garage specializes in hybrids (mine is a Prius) but will work on non-hybrids if you beg (I did and got them to work on my volvo). The cleanest and most nicely decorated garage and the best and most articulate technicians I've ever experienced. They consistently exceed expectations and I can even send my wife there by herself without having to field the otherwise inevitable "is this reasonable?" phone call. Of the three techs, two are women - my wife loves it and they're even nice to me. If you need your hybrid worked on in SF - GO TO LUSCIOUS GARAGE! They rock!

I love Luscious. As the previous reviewer said, they normally work on hybrids but will work on a normal car if you ask them nicely. They are very environmentally conscious... in fact, they come very close to having a truly paperless business. They give you your estimate via email, you interact with them via phone, email, and web site, and they even get your signature on a whiteboard and then take a picture of it. Might seem a little bit overzealous, but it all works remarkably well. The place is owned by a very friendly and progressive woman mechanic, and at least one of the other mechanics is also a woman, so I wouldn't worry at all that they would treat women differently here. They treat everyone with respect. I have not found them to be significantly more expensive than other places nearby, even though they come across as very upscale. And when those other places are trying to scam you (asking you to pay LIST price for an oxygen sensor part, plus labor, for example) Luscious is a hell of a lot cheaper. They really know what they're doing, and they get the job done quickly and efficiently. Plus, they are pretty flexible with their schedule: I couldn't come in while they were open until the next week, and I was okay with that -- it's my schedule that was the problem, not theirs -- but my mechanic said he'd be in for fifteen minutes on his day off, and I could meet him there then if I wanted. I did want, I did meet, he was there on time, and I got my car back. Seriously. These are great folks. Try them.

Luscious Garage Rocks! This is more of a religious experience than a garage. Very friendly, very capable, very dedicated to hybrids, but will work on other cars as well. I don't know how they are when something goes wrong: so far, nothing they've done has gone wrong :-)

One of the best shops to maintain/repair your Hybrid. I have a 2004 Prius, and the driver side HID bulb was going bad. I called my local Toyota dealer, and they quoted me $400+ to replace it. Luscious did the job for $132 using OEM parts, and it only took 15 min. Another neat thing about Luscious is that they have a night crew. You can drop off you car in the evening and it will be ready in the morning. They started this service to accommodate the growing hybrid Taxi fleet in San Francisco. I was told that Prius owners as far away as Los Angeles bring their cars for service to Luscious.

I've been taking my 2004 Prius in for a couple of years now, and their prices for the scheduled maintenance compare favorably with what the dealer was charging. And perhaps more important, they are delightful people who operate a shop as environmentally friendly as possible. I recommend them highly.

Female-owned and largely female-staffed, Luscious Garage specializes in servicing hybrids and has kept my Prius running great for the last 3 years.
