I have dealt with these guys on several occasions on 3 different vehicles and have been very pleased with their work. They went above and beyond the call of duty in trouble shooting a wierd problem w/ my old 85 S-10 and only charged me a portion of what they could have. On other occasions they have explained why i didn't need a repair that i though i did and saved me lots of money. They are very firendly and offer customer rides to work within the general area.

I've used their services at least half a dozen times and they are always responsive (they always call me, instead of me having to check in with them) and timely (in all cases but one hard-to-diagnose one, they have had the repairs done on the day I bring in the car). They explain the repairs to me and and when they fix something, it's fixed. They're located down the street from where I work and I recommend them to all my co-workers.

My husband (a mechanic) has always worked on my car, but since I have temporarily relocated to Windsor to be near by daughter who is attending school here, I needed to find a mechanic to do some work on my Toyota pickup. A friend suggested Day Hill Automotive, and then I checked out to see what reviews they might have. I have to say that I agree with all the reviews already written. I have feel like I am treated fairly and am dealing with people of integrity. The pricing is fair, the work done quickly and completely. I highly recommend them to friends who live here.

I have used Day Hill Auto for over 20 years to service various vehicles I have owned. I have also referred other people to them for service work on their vehicles. My adult children have taken their vehicles to Day Hill Auto for service work. I have always been satisfied with their work. They are both competent and honest - a rare combination for auto repair businesses. When I came to them for work that was not in their area of expertise, they referred me to others who were the experts. I would recommend them to anyone who wants quality work done on their vehicle by people who know what they are doing.

These guys are the best mechanics that we've ever had work on our vehicles, and this is over 45 years! We even have our kids take their cars there. They're honest and their prices are reasonable. Their business is well-run and clean, and they know what they don't know. Our family can recommend Day Hill Motors without reservation - any time to anyone.

Have always found fair and reasonable and good service. When they think they cannot perform work satisfactory i.e. electrical type problems they have been upfront, taken a look and given an honest opinion if they can tackle. (I had this issue with A/C control switch.)

I came to this website looking for a mechanic to fix my daughter's non-working windshield wipers, because I had received what I considered an unreasonable quote from an area chain- store shop. I called Day Hill for an appointment, and my car was dropped off the next day. I had a call back quickly stating the problem, the price of part and labor, and the car was fixed on time. You can't ask for more than that. I am a single mother with 2 teenage drivers at home and will return to Day Hill Automotive next time we have a problem.

I've given Paul and Keith a "blank check" many times, and they have never done work that wasn't needed, even when I told them that I thought it was. They called me and said that it was fine and didn't need to be fixed (brakes, hoses, belts, etc). I would recommend them to anybody.
