These guys are the best.  They do what they're scheduled to do when they say they will, keep you informed about any issues, and don't upsell.  They are incredibly thorough when you come in for a regular service, checking all the basics: tire pressures, brakes, fluids etc.  Thinking about buying a used vehicle?  Bring it in for a free quick evaluation, I did with a pickup truck and Ken told me why it wouldn't be a good idea, he knew all the quirks of that particular brand and model.  I ended up with another purchase that he approved of and the truck has been trouble free for over three years. Automotive city is my go to for anything automotive. - SJ W. (5 star review on Yelp)

Many thanks to the crew at Automotive City.  I needed a pre-purchase safety check of a vehicle being sold by a local buyer. I myself am not from the area.  The crew here accommodated me fully and on short notice. They ended up saving me from making a potentially problematic purchase. Their honesty comes thru in spades. And I wouldn't hesitate entrusting any of my automotive repair needs them.  Highly recommended. - Darrin K. (5 star review on Yelp)

We moved to Alta Sierra in 2016 and thanks to all the beautiful hills, recently needed to replace our brakes on our Toyota Camry. We searched around for reviews and neighbors' recommendations on auto shops. We settled on Automotive City which was well regarded and recommended. Dropped off our car Sunday night in what seemed to be a packed parking lot. I received a call Monday AM to discuss the work to be done, and we added an oil change to the two axle brake job. They had already inspected the brakes and explained the current status and recommendations. Pricing was fair and our car was ready for pick-up Monday afternoon. Ken reviewed the work in detail, even explaining the documentation and precision of turning the rotors. We originally had problems with vibrations when stopping, especially at high speed. After Ken's team performed their work, the car stops on a dime, smooth as glass. It is hard to put into words the feeling of personalized care and professionalism that Ken's team provides. It is clearly evident in everything they do. The shop is clean, organized. The employees are dedicated, passionate and take pride in their work. The absolute best value for auto work. High quality at an affordable price. - John H. (5 star review on Yelp)

These guys go above and beyond the call of duty. I have a Ford Explorer and my four wheel drive was locked in drive. I couldn't drive it. I called these guys and the guy I talked to knew exactly what to do to fix it. He told me what to do and it worked! - Dave B. (5 star review on Yelp)

Recently my elderly mother's car had an issue with her rear windows. I wasn't really sure what was going on but didn't think it was a quick fix. I called Automotive City and they told me to tell her to come in whenever she could and they would take a look at it. She brought it in and Ken, the owner took a look at it and fixed it on the spot. They didn't charge her for their time and she was so happy! My Mom is hard of hearing which also is a challenge. Thank you so much for your help and for not taking advantage of a situation that many shops would have! - Jeanne H. (5 star review on Yelp)
