These guys are great. If they cannot fix something, they admit it up front and suggest an alternative. Otherwise, they do what needs to done and then make suggests for things to be done in the future.

I have been a customer of this shop for more than 10 years and have been very happy with their work. PARK AUTOMOTIVE is a local treasure. It is such a comfort to have knowledgable, honest, reasonably-priced mechanics to turn to when car emergencies inevitably happen and when routine maintence tasks need to be done. I have recommended them to several friends who have also been happy and have made Don and Dennis their permanent mechanics. Thanks Don and Dennis!

I discovered this shop through co-workers who have used Park Auto.. It was highly recommended and have used the shop for the last ten years for my Honda, Toyota, my girlfriends Pontiac, Saturn, and motorhome. I have recommended Don and Dennis to people I work with and also a lady I met at the gym. She now uses the shop for all repairs on her old Toyota.

Don is one of the finest mechanics I've ever met. He is honest and extremely competent. He works in a timely manner and usually nails the problem and fixes it the first time out. He is one of the few mechanics I've seen that rates a check mark on both quality and price in the Bay Area Checkbook rating service. Both are well deserved.

This shop is great! Don, the owner?, is a friendly guy who is always available to help talk to you about your car. I've taken my 2005 Subaru Outback, and my wife's 2006 Honda Accord there several times and Don has always given me advice on how to avoid having a large repair bill. His prices are reasonable, especially for Palo Alto, and he is very honest. I certainly feel lucky to have found such a trustworthy and competent mechanic I can rely on.

Sad to report that after 35+ years, Don was forced to close Park Automotive by the City of Palo Alto who declared the area "a blight".
