Dave's Auto Repair

Brought my truck in to address a broken hood since I had received a $50 off coupon. Dave quickly got the hood open and then proceeded to his garage to get what he needed to fully fix my hood. It's now completely fixed. All of this was done for FREE without wait...the autobody shop (Magnussen) I had taken it to previously was of no help. Dave's earned my business next time.

Euro Auto Center

Another great option in the neighborhood for foreign car repair. Robert, the owner, has a great love of old BMWs and Mercedes. He also does Audi and VW. His enthusiasm is infectious. He has been keeping my son's 10 yr, 150K mile beemer running like a top. And I've never had a mechanic go over the repairs as thoroughly as he does, showing me the old parts, and explaining what failed. We were referred to Euro Auto by another local shop.

Kevin's Auto Repair

I needed my battery checked (classic symptoms of a battery dying) and, subsequently, replaced. I read some great reviews about Kevin's on Yelp and decided to call. They told me they do stock batteries but didn't have mine in stock. They said they would order it in case I need to replace it and to come in the next day, so I wouldn't have to leave my car or wait long. I went in today. They had the battery, checked mine, confirmed that it needed to be replaced, and replaced it free. I was only charged for the battery itself, which was a reasonable price. It was a good one, too — Interstate with a 75-month warranty. I can't imagine the rest of the car will last that long, so I'm very pleased! Also, I was in out of there in 20 minutes! I spoke with Kevin, the owner, and he said they try very hard to do a good job for all their customers and are very busy, so that's a good sign! He mentioned that they repair tires within 15 minutes FREE! So that's good to know. I highly recommend them. - cjasper, 9/1/11

Helmings Auto

I highly recommend Helmings Auto for repairs and service. And it is owned by a Monta Loma resident - talk about keeping things local.... :) [WWW]Helmings Auto Repair (650)988-0460

An expensive option. I would ask for a quote in advance.

Mike and his crew have always been dependable, honest, trustworthy and helpful. We couldn't ask for a better mechanic in the Monta Loma neighborhood. One of the best decisions I ever made was to quit having the car serviced at the Toyota Dealership and let Helmings take care of servicing the vehicles. (650) 988-0460.

Just finished having both our cars serviced by Helmings for brake issues and general automotive maintenance. I can't say enough about how well I am treated everytime I have the car serviced there. Mike, Leanne, Ron, Don and Sean always make me feel like my car(s) in the ONLY one being serviced that day. I highly recommend Helmings for anyone who is looking for an automobile repair shop to take care of their vehicles.

Reasonable for oil changes and small things, but can be expensive for major repairs. Owners and mechanics have great attitudes.
