Well John has done it again. Showed up at 11:45 on a saturday with a bad heater control hose and he had it repaired within 15 minutes. No fuss no muss just honest good old fashion service. Took my rav4 there today at 4:45 for an oil change and he had me in and out in less than 20 minutes on a Friday night no less. Saw a co worker there at the same time having a power window repaired close to closing time and he was out quick as well. I can not say enough good things about this shop other than I recomend it to all my co workers and they have treated every one with honest, dignity and respect no matter male or female black or white rich or poor . Bottom line is they get the job done.

I have been taking both of my cars to Toyauto for over two years now. Their prices are always lower than any other mechanic and they continue to do quality work. I continue to refer family members, friends and co-workers to Toyauto.

John Potts,the owner, just opened his new shop: TOYAUTO after working for Toyota for 20 plus years and working at home on the side. He is VERY competent, especially with Toyotas. Others he will recommend a dealer computer analysis and then fix whatever needs fixing at at least a 50% discount. He did this for my step-son' Alero and saved him at least 1500 dollars based on the dealer's estimated cost. COMPETENT and HONEST. He takes the time to listen. Currently working alone in his three-bay shop. He does it all. He will hire only ASE people he knows from Toyota when he gets busy enough. He's has revivied my 1985 Nissan after another place screwed up the timing.

Where to start this place is great. John Potts the owner has been working on my cars for over three years. He is a trained toyota expert, but can fix my suzuki, ford or anything I bring in. I have forwarded him many customers and have never had one complaint. John is fair , honest and most importantly competent. He will tell you what is the most relaible and cost effective way to fix the problem and never repairs things that dont need to be fixed. This a family run business and I would not hesitate to referr family friends and co workers. Easily half of what the dealer would charge. Thanks John keep up the great work.

I met John Potts through a co worker when my power window broke. This occured in the middle of winter at 6 am. John had the car fixed by 930 am and I was on my way. I recently had the local wal mart change my oil and they stripped the oil pan. John was able to repair the poor job they did and now the car does not loeak a drop. I have been to numerous mechanics throughout the valley and he is the most honest one thus far. I drive from Gilbert just to have my Honda and Chevy worked on.

I was new to the Phoenix area and looked to for recommendations. The radiator on my 1998 4Runner Limited appeared to have a small leak and I noticed the vehicle was pulling to the right. Long story short: Toyauto diagnosed the problems, fixed my 4Runner in a timely manner (had to wait for parts; not surprising given the vehicle is almost 10-years old!) and explained everything. Excellent work and a fantastic value! I've kept my Toyotas on the road for 20+ years and it is without hesitation that I'd bring them back to Toyauto.

John is the most honest mechanic I have ever talked to. I would highly recommend this shop to any one looking for good auto work for you dollar. My 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan was making a terrible hollowing. I felt it was the Power Steering Pump. I had my wife drop it off and John replaced the pump. John, the owner of the shop did the work his self. I pick up my van after work and talk with John a little – it was the end of the day and it was quitting time for both us. This is what he said, "you have a very small amount of water coming out of the weep hole on you water pump, it is nothing to worry about today, just keep an eye out to make sure you do not see a puddle of water under the car in the morning. Also you have a very minor leek from your transmission pan, it is nothing to be worried about, but the next time you have the transmission serviced it will go away.

I went to this shop because of the comments listed on this bulletin board. The owner, John , was as friendly and informative as he was competent (I've since found out he is a Toyota Master Mechanic). I took my 2000 Camry in for a number of reasons. It needed a 90K maintance routine, which John did well in a single day. It was also blowing a blue-white cloud out the exhaust when I started it in the morning. John thought that this problem would be covered by Toyota (it sometimes is a problem with this particular engine) and contacted a dealer for me to see if our car was covered. His evaluation was not enough by itself according to Toyota, so he provided me the name of the service representative who he had called. I found out today that Toyota will cover the problem. John could have performed the work himself (adding a $1000 to my bill) but he looked out for my best interests instead. To me, this is a true mark of a mechanic you can trust!
