Trustworthy, reliable, not always the cheapest. They are very thorough, though this once led to us going elsewhere to fix a specific issue rather than the larger systemic one.

We've been taking our 97 Camry to Satellite Motors for almost ten years, and have been very pleased with the quality of their work and the good advice that Mo and Nandin provide. Communication--before, during, and after repairs--is a key strength at this shop, and they not only provide us with information about options and costs to make informed decisions, but also alert us to maintenance work that will be required in the future. Our car now has 193K miles, and we have every confidence that they will keep it running well for many more.

I’ve been using this shop to service my Toyotas since the late 1980s and have been completely satisfied at each and every visit. The staff is courteous and knowledgeable. They listen to your concerns and answer your questions. The staff explains service and repair needs, fix only what is necessary, and do the job right the first time. They maintain a complete service record of your vehicle and review it with you at each appointment to keep you aware of scheduled maintenance needs and the condition of critical items like belts, tires and brakes. I get peace of mind knowing that only necessary service and repairs are performed and items that might need attention in the future are being watched. Why go the dealer when you can go here?

Satellite Motors has serviced 3 different cars for me (Toyota Camry, Infiniti g35x, Nissan Altima) and have done an excellent job every time. They are knowledgeable, responsive, patient, honest and sincere in all of their work and I would not take my car anywhere else. They always listen to the customers' requests and will always call to communicate the necessary work before doing any costly repairs so that the customer is not surprised. I would recommend anyone to take their car to be serviced and maintained at Satellite Motors.

For over 20 years now, I've been taking my cars (both Toyota Tercels) to Satellite. The mechanics are excellent, they explain everything to me, do the work that needs to be done, and don't do any work that does not need to be done! I am a loyal customer because they do a great job and they are honest with me - consistently, every time! (And, I am the kind of person that if I have a bad experience once, I never go back, so that tells you this is a shop you can count on.) Between Satellite and Silver Spring Tires right down the road (which Satellite referred me to many years ago) I never have to worry about anything else for my car. I'm counting on them to keep my car running another 10 or 20 years (thanks guys!) Highly recommended....

The best! I've been taking my car here for years. The service and one on one customer experience is always great!

Satellite Motors is a competent and honest automotive shop. They don’t tell you something needs to be fixed when it really doesn’t, but they will tell you if parts are wearing out and will need replacing soon. We have actually used this shop for 28 years and the current owner is every bit as good as the original one. I wouldn’t use any place else.

I have been going to Satellite Motors for 20 years. They have worked on my Corollas, Camry and now Prius, it is like taking your car to the doctor, they let you know what is wrong, when it needs to be fixed, and how much it will cost . This allows you the opportunity to make wiser decisions for you pocket and the safety of your vehicle. The mechanics treat your car like they are working on their mother car. Mo and Nahleen are the best, they really care about you and your car and they know their business. I wouldn't take my car anywhere else.

The team at Satellite Motors has done a great job keeping my beloved 2002 Camry running like new. They are thorough and very professional, order parts in advance, get the job done on time for the estimated price. After a local oil change shop botched the threads on our Honda Odyssey, they made a temporary fix for practically nothing, then suggested a complete repair (for a very reasonable price) the next time we had the van in for something else. Thanks, Naleen and Mo!
