Exactly three times in ten years I've had an automotive emergency while visiting Arcata for the day. Each time, I rolled into Cahill's (purely by chance the first occassion) and each time I was dealt with courteously and quickly and they solved my problems with competence and for a reasonable fee. I know it's not the same as a lifetime of reliable service, but these guys are the real deal for a FULL service station and have treated me like a long-time customer when I've always been a last-minute emergency. They deserve a listing!

Been using these guys for 12 years. Scott and Dave are both great, affable and straight forward. They're primarily a service station but have done a lot of miscellaneous work on my Tacoma, Impreza and Mazda 6. If they're not set up for for a job they tell me, and I at least get a good diagnosis. They're great at diagnostics, have checked out used cars for me that have turned out to be good buys. They drive me home and back, or pick up/drop off my car (now, I only live 1/2 mile away, I don't know how much of this they do for others farther away). I can't give their hourly rate because they quote me a figure for a job, which I always think is quite reasonable. I can't say how well they 'fess up if they goof, because they haven't goofed yet.
