I took my Ford Escort to Stauder because it was making a bad sounding thumping sound. The car completely died right in front of the shop. Judging by the steam rising from the hood, I thought the car was done for, but I gave them the key and walked a few blocks down to BART. They replaced my timing belt and water pump and now the car is running again. The price for repairs seems reasonable and they told me what repairs are going to be needed on the car in the future without pressuring me to do them right now. Bob explained to me what was wrong with the car and why in a clear manner and it was nice to understand what was really wrong for a change. The only complaint I have is that I turned over the car on Monday and it wasn't ready until Friday, but they had warned me they were busy and it would take some time. I would definitely go back there again and feel good about my experience with them.

Jim is the counter guy, always friendly and helpful. Takes time to listen to each customer even if another might be waiting. He seems to go the extra mile to keep you informed with phone calls if something else is found wrong or costing more than expected. The guys in the shop really seem to care about you and your car. A real pleasure to visit.

Took in my Honda 2005 because I thought I needed brakes. They charged me for one-half hour, checked all four wheels and cleaned the front brakes, added fluid, road tested it and did it when they said they would (1-2 hours). Service with a smile--that's for sure. They were in business 25 yrs in one location and 11 years in this location. I will go back.
