This is the only place I take my cars to, even though I live and work in San Francisco. Whilst the manager there Rob is a bit rough around the edges, he's a great guy if you get to know him, and he knows his cars. You'll often see restored muscle cars sitting there alongside expensive, late model European cars, and Japanese econoboxes.
Best mechanic in town. Robert (manager) and his crew are top-notch. My family and I have been taking our cars there for the past 10 years. I live in San Francisco and don't mind taking my vehicles to Mountain View for repairs. It's absolutely worth my piece of mind. Robert is fair, honest, and does great work. It's nice to have a mechanic you can trust. Give him a try, you won't find a better mechanic.
Every time I have an issue with my car, or just need a regular tune-up, Rob is my go-to guy. He is professional, gives out free advice, and my car runs perfectly when I get it out of the shop. I trust him completely with my car. Definitely can't say the same about most car mechanics out there
