Robert is very nice, honest, polite, qualified, and fair. What more could you want? If he can't fix it, he'll tell you. If it's not worth fixing, he'll tell you. He explains all repairs and bills. He does everything he can to accomodate the customer. I never had to take the car back for the same problem, because he uses high quality parts and does a thorough and competent job.

I want to highly recommend Robert's shop to anyone needing work on their Acura or Honda car. This man was (fortunately for me) recommended to me in 1991 when I first moved up to Santa Barbara. This past week I had to take my Acura to the HONDA dealership on Kellogg for a four-wheel alignment and- with all due respect-- was treated very unprofessionally by the Service Manager. So much so, that I called Robert and spoke to his wife (she does the accounting and helps answer any phone calls that come in)...I was livid and very upset; and needed some advice. Because Robert has been such a wonderful and dependable person with my car, I considered him my immediate source for "consolation" as it were.. This was a perfect example of Di Maurio's true care and concern for their customer, telling what my next step would be. I am a single mom who lives on a very tight budget; Robert and his partner as well as his wife, have always been very considerate of that. He treats your car with the same concern that he would have for his own vehicle, (a Honda of course..:)-- but the bottom line is, this is my second Acura since living in this community, and I will have another Honda or Acura when my car finally dies; because I can't afford to lose; and don't wish to lose this family owned shop.

DIMAURO'S AUTOMOTIVE in "Old Town" Goleta, CA is my 1st pick always. Here's why: Owner Robert and staff are the most courteous, dependable, reasonable, and professional people in the business. Robert's knowledge of and passion for Honda automobiles has kept my '88 Accord LXi alive and strong since my arrival to Goleta in 1996. I live one block from his shop on Dawson St., and although the Honda dealership is also conveniently located a half mile away from my residence and 2 blocks from my place of work, I will always utilize Robert's expertise for my precious and beloved Accord. This is not an after-market or assembly line shop like so many out there today. Robert and ASE certified staff use genuine Honda parts, and it will be obvious to a new customer of DiMauro's that you will be treated with respect and that your car will be repaired and/or tuned up in a timely manner with only the parts and labor required to complete the task at hand. Robert's honesty, care and hard work are deserved of anyone interested in maintaining their Honda vehicle in the Santa Barbara/Goleta area at an affordable price. Plus, he has a website with a handy map at: www.dimauros.verizonsupersite.com

Di Mauro's is a terrific shop: excellent repair prices (relative to the local Honda dealership), unfailing courtesy and good humor, timely and high quality work. We have two Honda vehicles, and we'll be buying Honda again for 2 reasons: they're good cars, and Di Mauro's works on them.

Rob and his long time assistant Danny are exceedingly competent, honest, humble, and hard working; very rare qualities unless you're referring to a dog. They will tell you what they know and what they don't know; they are very good about estimating how long it will take to diagnose and correct problems; they make every effort to accomodate emergencies, and make excellent recomendations for alternative services when they can't; and their pricing has always been a better deal than comparisons I've made. Rob recommended I buy my current 1988 Honda Accord because, he said, it was the strongest engine Honda ever made. That was about 140,000 miles ago; we're fast approaching the 290,000 mile mark and, although it doesn't look like much, which is my fault, it doesn't burn oil or make any scary noises; and thanks to Rob and Danny, I expect it will keep on going for a while yet.

Robert ONLY works on Honda and Acura. He is honest, competent, friendly and nice to work with. He only works 4 days a week now, used to do all the work himself, but now has an equally competent assistant. His lovely wife sometimes handles the office and usually brings the dog with her. They are a great young couple. You might find a less expensive repair shop, but never a better one or a better price/quality one. Our only regret is that he doesn't work on any other kinds of cars. Oh well, we are happy with Hondas and Acuras, so we will just stick with those brands and Robert. P.S. my CRX, under Robert's care has 230K+ miles on it, original engine - went 210 before it needed a new clutch. The body is falling apart, but strapping tape works fine and makes it look like custom racing stripes. Robert says the car should go forever, but we have to periodically get rid of the beach sand (from the dog) because it just adds unnecessary weight. BTW, that is 25 YEARS he has worked on our cars, not 25 times!!!!

Quite simply, this is without a doubt the BEST Honda shop from the Rincon to Gaviota.

This is the best mechanic I have ever had work on my cars. I went back to a Honda just so I could have Robert work on my car; he is so thorough and competent. I had a regularly scheduled service appointment at the dealer, and the initial quote was higher than what I paid for the service and new brakes. I can't say enough about Robert and his crew...

Robert DiMauro was a wonderful find (recommended to us by our Toyota mechanic when we bought a Honda Civic Hybrid in 2003). He is so honest that he tells you when the job cost less than the original estimate. He is unfailingly courteous and helpful. After a number of years and a lot of mileage, Robert thought he detected a potential (very expensive) issue with our hybrid that led him to suggest we trade it in sooner rather than later unless we were going to keep it until 'the very end'. We heeded his advice, and, for various reasons, ended up trading it in for a Toyota Prius. Our only regret about buying the Prius is that, by doing so, we were unable to reward his good deed by continuing to be loyal customers. As a token of our gratitude, we're giving him and his lovely wife a gift certificate to a favorite local restaurant of ours.
