I feel completely confident in their integrity and the quality of their work." - A E.

I recently blew a coolant hose on my Honda Accord in Colfax on my way to Grass Valley. A couple family members have always spoken very highly of Ken at Automotive City, and take their vehicles there on a regular basis.
I barely made it to the shop around 4:45 pm as they were getting ready to close. Ken and Doug looked at the car, did some quick inspection and actually gave me a couple options and costs. they were very upfront about each repair option, and how it could affect me down the road. Even though they were closing, they took the time to give me an option that would get me back on the road quickly.
I decided on an option, and they called immediately to get the parts ordered. They called and set up a rental car for me, which included their B2B discount (which I thought was really great).
The repairs were done the next day a little earlier than they said they would be, and I've had no issues with the repairs since. Everything was as quoted, and the service was great!
I have a truck in for MAJOR service currently (it basically wasnt even running when I took it in). They have called and checked in each step of the way to make sure I'm ok with the next step, and make sure I dont spend more than the truck is worth. It's an older truck, so it's not worth putting too much money into.
I really appreciate the communication and the quality of work. I'll continue to take my vehicles to Automotive City!
Thanks guys!

"We have been taking our vehicles here for 5 years .  Great service and honest mechanics.  Automotive city is the only place in town we trust.  One time after using a 19.95 oil change coupon at another location we were told our truck needed thousands of dollars of work.  We took the truck to Ken at Automotive City and he said a lot of what the other mechanic was going to fix was not necessary on an old truck.  He saved us thousands of dollars on that visit alone." - Cameron M
