They are literally the best!

I have been bringing my cars and trucks to Automotive City for the last ten years and needless to say they are above and beyond the most reliable, polite, mechanics I have ever worked with. They not only know what they’re doing they also won’t repair unnecessary items and you can count on them not overcharging and doing an amazing job. Good mechanics are hard to find and we consider them not just friends but family. They are literally the best.

Timely and accomodating!

Customer relations & service, professional repair and maintenance are exemplary. Has taken great care of my 2004 Ford Sport-Trac in many ways, lately a radiator replacement. Timely and accomodating, Ken, owner/manager, the team gets a 5-Star rating and recommendations to my friends. Especially in these challenging times. Thank you.

They have been entered into our contact list for the next time needed!

Brought in my wife’s 2001 Honda Accord for an oil change and battery replacement. Tire rotation was included with an oil change. April 2020. Done in quick time and reasonably priced. Friendly and informative staff (if only over the phone; we appreciated the distancing, however, since we’re fragile senior citizens). Automotive City has been entered into our contact list for the next time needed. Thank you!

My go-to for anything automotive!

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)

Thanks, Automotive City!

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)

High quality at an affordable price!

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)

This crew goes above and beyond.

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)

Very happy with the service!

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)

The best service!

I rarely write reviews, however this is an instance that story deserves to be repeated. It is Memorial Day weekend, I am a vendor at festivals and with a crew we serve food to the thousands of attendees. We have the Strawberry Music Festival to work at, then another show on Monday evening in the Bay area. There are a lot of pieces of the puzzle in place to be able to function effectively. Two vans, a trailer and another car in the caravan. As we arrive at the Nevada County Fairgrounds Wednesday evening ready to set up the evening prior to showtime, van two, a '97 Dodge Pleasureway with our sleeping quarters rolls in making a racket, with steam pouring out of the hood. I immediately take over behind the wheel and move it to a camping spot and shut it off. I spent some time on Thursday asking recommendations with the knowledge that I had only the possibility of Thursday or Friday for repairs as Monday was a holiday, the clock was ticking. I called Automotive City at 12:22 Friday, Ken the owner answered, I told him the story and my diagnosis of a failed water pump, he said they would shift their schedule, order parts and do the repairs as soon as a tow truck could drop it at their door. Tow truck took ninety minutes to arrive and had to negotiate through all the campers and then off to the shop arriving just before 3:00. I went for a meal across the street, came back and read the papers in the waiting area,watched and listened as the staff went about their tasks and interacted with customers, courteous and professional. As Ken the owner had anticipated they were able to manage the entire repairs in just over two hours. The van rolled out from the service bay at ten after five, then a quick spin for road test and it was back at 5:15. I paid, drove back to the fairgrounds was back in the camp spot and on to my work shift at 6:00! Thank you Ken (owner) Spencer (front desk, service writer) Ryan (front desk and service) and Scott (mechanic) and the other mechanics that I did not get names of. With your assistance I was able to maintain the axiom of professionalism for my business - never have the background troubles diminish the experience of the customer. Yes, we were able to give and receive magic thanks to the crew at Automotive City, thanks guys! Oh, we made it to the Monday night show too! - Jeff P. (5 star review on Yelp)
