When I couldn't unscrew a piece of my espresso machine they used their impact driver to remove the screw then recut the head of the screw so I could use it again. No charge. They are truly honorable, skilled people who have maintained both my cars for the past 10 years. I couldn't go anywhere else.

The last time I was in I told them I thought I knew the problem and what it would (aprox) cost. The worked on the car and later told me the problem was something similar to what I thought, but easier and cheaper. They're real good guys.

Very pleasant experience. Work done promptly; car ready when promised; reasonably priced. And the mechanics DID NOT sit on the car seat with greasy coveralls.

This looks like any old gas-station with a service bay, but the guys here are great. Although the hourly rate ($94.00!) is steep, they will bill you for less time than other "cheaper" places. And when they fix something, it stays fixed. Also, they will honestly tell you whether something is actually worth fixing, and whether a problem is urgent or not. I've been dragging my lousy old Mystique from mechanic to mechanic for years, and finally found some people who do their job right. Highly recommended!

I have used this service station for 20 years for my Toyota, VW, and Honda. They are helpful, fast, reasonably priced, and have always fixed the problem the first time. My favorite experience was when the check engine light came on, and they said it was a catalytic converter. They said to take it to the Toyota dealer, even though the car was 6 1/2 years old, because the emissions equipment warranty would probably cover it. They were correct, so instead of $1000, it was free from Toyota, though California Auto made no money at all. That's who they are.
