Jim and Don are unusually reluctant to charge you for something they did easily or had to do over for any reason. They work half-days on Saturday and lock up all cars in the garage overnight. Their shop is two blocks from the Milpitas police department headquarters. Their prices have always been very reasonable and they don't raise them often. I have a very old 1977 Accord which as you know blows headgaskets about every 30,000 miles. If it weren't for their low price to repair it, I'd have had to give up the car years ago. I usually drive it to work daily and it's still a fun car to drive that gets 30 miles per gallon. They do not specialize in things like body work or transmissions because Minnis Circle has several such shops and they all specialize. These are solid, reputable, good value for the buck guys. We've been using them for about 15 years and they've never failed to please.

Jim & Don are very likable guys. I've never had a problem with them. Their prices are reasonable and they don't always charge you if they can't find or fix the problem. They specialize in Hondas, but they also do Toyotas, Acuras, & Nissans. My daughters also go to them and they have never had a bad experience. We've been going to them for years.
