I had a mysterious electrical problem with my Toy 4x4 PU. When these guys tried to diagnose the problem they ran up against a brick wall when the diagnosis was to replace part X and see if that worked. Since part X wasn't on the shelf, they searched their database to find other clients with a similar year / model truck. They offered a free oil change if the customer would loan their truck to the mechanics to help track my problem down. When they diagnosed the trouble (bad pickup coil which evidently then ruined the ignitor) they called various junkyards (after getting my approval) to find a cheaper replacement (these parts rarely break down -- so why me??) than stock, and they even stored my truck (no charge) for a week while I had to leave town. Honest and straightforward, with a long history in Woodland. Trust these guys.

I've been to alot of auto repair shops and I trust these guys. It is against my nature to trust automotive repair people since being screwed over so many times. They are honest and will tell you how it is. They may not be the cheapest but I'll pay a little extra for honesty. If they don't think your car needs it, they let you know. They were recommended to me by a co-worker because I'd been looking for a reliable mec

They have been maintaining and, when necessary, repairing our cars (Nissan, Toyota, and Honda) for about 25 years. They are scrupulously honest, and, to my knowledge, have never pushed any unnecessary work on us. Their work appears to be of excellent quality, and their prices are reasonable.

Be sure to say HI to the dogs! They also fixed my Honda 90 throttle for free - don't tell anyone.

I just picked up my car from Ken Fielding Auto and am furious, to put it mildly. When I scheduled the appointment for the repair, I specifically asked if they could do the requested repair on my vehicle (BMW 325i). I was assured that they could, made the appointment and dropped off my car. Upon pickup, I was told that the car was fixed, but not quite. Fielding Auto was unable to complete the repair because they didn't have the computer to reinitialize the operation (electric window). I was told it worked, but the automatic function was not working. They told me that I should take it to a BMW dealer and they could finish the job (at my expense). They did not have the equipment to complete the job but accepted the job anyway. They then proceeded to charge me $365.00 and told me a dealer would have charged me over $500. The last time I had a window mechanism replaced (2011), it cost me $266.00 and was done correctly. I was trying to give a local merchant some business, but will never do business with these people again. I Unfortunately, they had my car and my keys, so the vehicle was being held hostage and I had to pay.

Been taking our cars and trucks to Ken Fielding Auto for 20 years: Honda Accords (2), Toyota Priuses (3), Nissan P/U (1), Toyota Tacomas (2). Work is done well and on-time, with convenient scheduling. Prices are reasonable and estimates are accurate. They are up to date on late models cars -- including hybrids. I just had them perform an intricate repair on an instrument (external temp. readout and compass) on a 2006 Tacoma. Very happy with the results -- paid an order of magnitude less than dealer cost for this intricate repair. Their technical advice is always sound, helping us avoid unnecessary repairs and costs. We have leaned on Mike and crew over the years to keep our vehicles going -- and we have recommended them to family members without hesitation. It is hard to find honest, competent mechanics. One way to tell a good mechanic is how clean the shop is. Ken Fielding Auto passes this test too.
