Came in from out of town for a friends wedding and a bunch of warning lights came on in my car while taking her to her appointments. On the way to one, I spotted this location and swung through to see if they could help. They did in a flash and with great kindness. It made everything much easier and less worriesome so I could focus on the important things 🙂 Thank you guys!! Top notch.
Honest and professional.
I had to get my brake pads replaced on my BMW. These guys did a professional job starting from the honest diagnosis, to dropping me off home to having the car ready out front when I showed up. Highly recommend them from my experience.
I just moved to Santa Cruz and was worried about finding a mechanic as good as the one I had in Oregon. I was sent here by an smog test shop because the check engine light was on and the car wouldn't pass with it on. Brought it over and they checked it for free and cleared the minor error that was making the light turn on for. Been going here ever since!
Absolutely the best mechanic EVER. Brian is the man. Honest, forthright, bright, knows BMW's in and out and a true gentleman. He is my mechanic for life. Thoughtful, thorough, precise, accurate, fair, trust worthy, generous. All that praise, is it possible? Yes. Try it. Brian will never disappoint. I took my BMW 330ci to him after the car was meticulously maintained by the dealer for more than 10 years but I let it go for almost 22k miles and just when it was dying I took it to Brian. After the service and a thorough look Brian brought it back to almost new and it works like a charm as I commute the hill and back daily. Brian, thanks for fixing my seat motor for free. thanks for renewing my oil for free. thanks for all your advice and your friendship. Honesty pays and he knows it.
