Sieu Thai, the owner, is a wonderful diagnostician, an ethnical person, and a wry, charming guy. He's efficient but patient, and virtually always gets it right the first time. He will arrange for a ride to BART, if possible. He's a true American success story: emigrated from Vietnam under difficult circumstances. He has the smarts to be an engineer, but you're lucky to have him as your mechanic. Neighborhood is not so great (though generally close to Mills College), but he's worth the trip. Tell him Joy sent you.

I found Auto Saver from the previous review. I am very pleased to have found a professional, competent mechanic, in my residential neighborhood. I feel very confident that I was treated exactly the same way as a customer who had a large amount of car knowledge. He explained the repairs well. I usually judge a mechanic's honesty by the all of these things and put value in not needing to have a huge understanding of cars. I feel he will be our mechanic from now on.

Auto Saver was recommended to me by a friend. The two of us have recommended him to 5 other people. We were all thrilled with him. Sieu, the owner, is fair, inexpensive, and skilled. One of my favorite aspects of going to Auto Saver is that Sieu takes the time to explain his repairs, regardless of your gender or knowledge level. I sometimes have to talk him into doing repairs, his default is to save me money by waiting until he thinks the repair is definitely necessary. He looks out for me. Thank you, Sieu!
