My first car: took the car in for the brakes (heard cartalk that sinking may mean the master cylinder is failing). They did the usual "all the things you might want to fix." My brakes were okay, the degree of sinking was normal. Out of the things I might want to fix- I agreed and they did them inexpensively. I must now go to a Seattle site to warn first time owners against a 500$ tuneup!

My wife told me the brakes on her 1999 Toyota Camry were "squasling and making noises". We took the car to Robert McKnight at Toyo, and he heard the brakes squeal when my wife pulled in. They raised the car (and did a lube, oil change, filter, general servicing and checkup), pulled all four wheels, blew the dirt, dust, etc. out that was the apparent cause of the squealing (she still had 55% of her pads remaining and no damage or wear to the rotors), and the total repair/servicing bill was $20.31, tax included. Having been told by the local Toyota dealer that my 2000 Tacoma needed brakes (shortly after having been serviced by Toyo (I went in to have defective seat-belts replaced)), I returned to Robert, explained the situation, and my truck was raised, all wheels checked, and found the greatest wear was 45%, no where near a complete brake job as quoted by Karl Malone Toyota. The charge for the checkup? Zero. I recommend this shop and its staff very highly.

I took my 96 Toyota Tacoma in to Toyo for some routine maintenance, along with a couple of "making a funny noise" questions. They took care of the routine maintenance and checked out the funny noises. They told me one noise was normal for this make and model of vehicle and one was just something needing lubrication, which they did as part of the service. I thought this was very honest of them, since they could have tried to sell me on some expensive and unnecessary repairs. The overall cost of the maintenance was very reasonable. They also gave me a list of other maintenance items that I should take care of soon. I now have taken my truck back to take care of those things. They are very friendly and professional. I am a woman and I am comfortable that they are not trying to take advantage of me. I will continue to go to Toyo for all my maintenance and repair.

They are former Toyota dealership mechanics (10+ years) who opened up on their own so they could have better hours and spend more time with their families. Good work. Saved me hundreds on an A/C compressor by fixing/ replacing a sub-component when the Toyota dealer would only replace the whole thing. Also very honest about telling me I don't need certain work, even if I would have been willing to pay for it.

I've had good, reliable and quick service from these guys. I also find them very trustworthy- the first time I went in I mentioned my brakes probably needed work but they let me know they were fine. I especially wanted to add my comments after reading an earlier post about a Seattle garage charging 500$ for a tuneup/evaluation - I think I went there, too! I'm very happy to have found a garage I trust.

Tranny failed on my daughter's '93 Camry. After she took the car to them on my advice (I live 1200 miles away and saw them on CarTalk's list), Robert McKnight began diagnosis rather than "throwing parts" or the automatic "needs a new tranny" song and dance. Turns out it did need a replacement due to maintainence neglect of previous owner and a hidden accident problem. Robert suggested a replacement of a used trans. imported from Japan rather than reman. Did so saving $1800. When it malfunctioned, Robert, through patient investigation, found the hidden cause of the previous failure and remedied it for parts only cost, after hours. Not only are these guys honest and really competent, they also made every effort to save me money by their skill. Simply top notch service and people!

I have been using this shop for years... and I absolutely LOVE these guys. Honest, ethical, caring and super competent. I own 3 ancient Toyotas/ Nissans, and they keep them running in top form. I've sent a ton of people to them, and we are all completely satisfied. I have learned to trust them totally. They have earned every accolade I can pour on them. This is the shop you're looking glad I found them.

These guys are really competent, but expensive. I took my 2005 Tundra in for its 60,000 mile servicing, and the bill came to about $550. This didn't include ANY repairs, just routine checks. The worst was $15 for topping up the window washing fluid. I'm not a car person, so I couldn't really evaluate the fairness of the many other charges. These guys may be good, but I can't afford them.

These guys are great! They remember who I am and which car I drive. Had them work on my '94 Toyota Camry station wagon for a couple years, and now have them work on my '04 Subaru Forester. They do great work and always call to tell me what they need to do and why; this is perfect, because I am kind of an idiot when it comes to the inner workings of a car. In terms of an honest mechanic, they are great. Recently I asked them about working on my clutch, and after some research, they said it was too big a job for them, but they made some recommendations and made themselves available to answer any questions I have about parts and prices. One guy drives an early 90's Toyota pickup truck, and the other drives a a late 90's Subaru Forester, both appear to be in great condition. I would highly recommend Toyo Auto Service for Toyota and Subaru!!!
