Best mechanics that are honest too! – I have followed the manager, Gary Schaller, of this location over the years and to different shops because he is an ASE Certified mechanic, excellent diagnostician, and extremely honest. Imagine that... a mechanic who won't rip you off! I have referred numerous friends - some of whom don't even live in the east bay and they swear by him. If you're looking for a mechanic that can diagnose the issue quickly, give you an accurate cost estimate, do the job right the first time, and make you glad you came to them, then this is the shop for you!
Good, fast, reasonable – The staff are very personable and performs work in professional manner, and very reasonable in price.
Berkeley's best kept secret – We used to take our car to either a dealership or some big fancy auto shop for service, but not anymore, they are just too expensive. We just recently moved to the bay area and a friend of ours recommended Car Care Service. Initially, when we drove up we were not very impressed with the shop, it looked so small from the street, but once inside we could see numerous cars out back where we learned there were three lifts in addition to the lift right inside the door. The technician on duty was nice enough to take a look at our car right there on the spot, and explain to us what would be done if we decided to service our car there. He made us feel very comfortable and so we decided to give them a try. WOW! They did such a great job and at such a fair price, they even got rid of a rattling noise that had been driving us nuts for months and no one else could ever seem to fix. Just goes to show that you really can't judge a book by it cover. Exceptional workmanship, knowledgable staff and more than fair prices..that says it all..in one little nutshell.
Best in town – I have been living in Alameda for quite awhile and was very satisfied with my mechanic, unfortunately he decided after many years of service that it was time to retire and move to Florida so he sold his shop. Great for him, stressful for me and other clients. Lucky for me I stumbled across Car Care Service. A bit apprehensive, I decided to give them a try and it paid off big time. Not only did they win me over by doing a great job on my car, but they treated me so kindly and knowing I had just lost my longtime mechanic they really made me feel comfortable and confident that they would take great care of me and my car and they have ever since. I even recommended them to some of the folks that used my old mechanic and their experiences have been all good. Thanks Car Care Service.
Fast Friendly Service – brought car into this shop, had been to my mechanic for the same problem he was not able to repair my car, they diagnosed my car and reported back to me the same day the manager was very helpful and walked me stage by stage in the way they were going to repair my car ,,,,they are my new mechanics from now on .....Neil
Good deals for auto service in Berkeley – I found Dons to be customer friendly with mechancis and service managers being knowledgable and articulate when explaining technical issues. Their prices are competive and their service is impeccable right down to the free loaner car while yours is in the shop.
Great customer service – I've been going to Don's for a few years and go back for the great customer service. The owner will take the time to explain what's wrong with my car, why it needs to be fixed, and whether it should be done right away or can wait. Their prices are fair--I don't feel like they're ripping me off or doing a cut-rate cheap job either. They offer a ride to work or use of a loaner car, which is one less hassle to deal with. They do efficient and trustworthy work.
they love my car like i love my car – Great service! They really took good care of my car. I was quick, easy and painless. They even pick me up at work then gave me a courtesy car. I've have been going to Don's for 5 years and they always taken good care of me.
As a female, they make me feel comfortable and not exploited.
