John Wansick, the owner, has been helpful in answering questions, referring us to a lock expert, a body repair place, a tire shop, and other places. He is willing to help with small problems at no charge: for example, our Ford Focus ignition key wouldn't come out of the ignition. John lubricated it and crawled under the car to analyze the problem, and then referred us to the lock experts. He warns us of upcoming service needs and gives cost estimates so that we can prepare for having the work done. His shop is next to a BART station, which is convenient for many, and also next to a large shopping center.

The owner, John, is a downright nice guy in addition to being honest/fair, competent, and efficient. He has worked on our Volvo, Pontiac, and Volkswagen and we are highly satisfied with every interaction. He will present the alternatives to you, even if it means he won't make the biggest buck off you that day; he is wise enough to know that he will earn more from the loyalty he inspires from long-term repeat customers. (Additionally, I am female and have NEVER been spoken down to by anyone at his shop.) I can not recommend John and Fairmount Auto highly enough.

John is always looking for the best combination of appropriate and cost effective solutions. A great problem solver and a nice guy.
