It's a shame they don't work on other makes because they'd put everyone else out of business. They have always impressed me with their honesty and commitment to quality. My dear Integra is old (1989, 270,000+) and they give it as much attention and care as everyone else's car. Even better, these guys are very personable--and they gladly accept cookies and banana bread. I really can't say enough about them and I've probably gushed enough.

i have been a loyal toyota customer since the late sixties and have almost always gone to a dealership until abouut 2 years ago when a couple of friends told me about specialized auot.once i went there i wondered how come it had taken so long to find these guys.i found out that one of the service managers is the son of the service manager that made me fall in love with toyots in the first place.they treat you like family.

They worked on my Toyota Previa van before purchasing our Lexus. They know how subtitute the same part for the Lexus from the Toyota label saving considerable money.

I first met the owner, Craig Kirkland, when he worked for the local Toyota dealership as a service manager. He went to Volvo for a short time, and my Camry and I went too!!! Now he owns his own place, and I would not go anywhere else. Craig has been very helpful for any of my needs, and his employees are extremely competant. The only, and this is so minor, problem is that they open too late in the morning for me. (7:30 AM). They have always been able to work around my schedule. My '93 Camry has 220,000 miles on it, and it keeps running smoothly, thanks to Specialized Automotive and the mechanics there.

Steve, who answered phone was very friendly and handled my call and a counter customer professionally. The ONLY problem is that they ONLY work on Toyotas and Hondas according to Steve. I was very sad to hear that because I wanted them to work on my car just based on how professionally they handled the phone. So rare to find customer service.

This is the best repair shop I've ever done business with. I have been with this shop for 10 years without a complaint- -except that they limit their work to Hondas, Acuras, and Toyotas! They are fair, reasonable, easygoing, and a pleasure to do business with.

I've been very happy with this place. It's the main reason I bought a Honda to replace my totalled Toyota, so I'd still have a car they would service. They're even cheerful, and they remember me.

Specialized (Honda and Toyota) has been repairing my 1989 Integra (I said Honda because it's better known, but of course they're the same) since 1998. I have the greatest possible respect for these guys and trust in their advice and work. When there is a mistake--VERY rare--they own up and guarantee the work. Truthfully, I've been a customer so long--and my car is so old @330,000 miles--they know my voice on the phone and I bring them baked goods during the holidays to show my appreciation. Craig, Mo, and Jose are the best. I give them the highest possible recommendation.
