My experience is very similar to the other reviewers - Terry is fantastic to work with and I trust him absolutely with my car. I had a very old, junky 87 subaru wagon - sometimes Terry recommended doing the repair and other times he said it just wasn't worth it - and without fail he was always correct. When the transmission finally went out, he confirmed my worst fears for free (kind of hard to miss, but it was nice to know for certain). As a woman, I really appreciate that I don't get talked down to and that my concerns are never ignored. I get phone calls with updates regarding my car's repairs' progress and the final bill either matches the original quote, is a little UNDER or I've already agreed via phone to additional work - never any surprises. Their prices seem to be reasonable for the Bay Area. I now take my 91 Jeep Wrangler to him and have been equally happy with my experience.

Terry Lee who owns/runs this shop is kind understanding competent always willing to help. I have been sending folks to him for years and they always call to thank me. I am having difficulty with a VW that is brand new and leaking water and starting to mildew inside (7,500 milews on it) and i have been dealing with dealers and VW trying to fix it - so i thought I would take a moment out of my teeth grind and say something kind and positive about someone else.

I've been bringing my various cars to Terry for nearly 30 years, and have recommended him to many people. I always feel confident that he will fix what is wrong and, even more importantly, not fix what is not wrong. As a female car owner, it is important to me that I never feel that I am being manipulated or dismissed when dealing with this garage.

Showplace Motors was recommended to me by a friend on Potrero Hill who said she had been taking her car there for years. I took my Saturn there for a new clutch and in return visits for brakes and other maintenance items. Terry was incredibly informative and he and Benny did the jobs in the time they said and at an excellent price. They are a great honest mechanic shop.
