I can't say enough great things about this establishment.  I have been bringing my vehicles here for well over 12 years!  I equate finding an automotive mechanic that is not only good, but trustworthy is like finding a good medical doctor.  Two fields I have no real knowledge about and have to rely solely upon their expertise. To give you a good example, many times they could have recommended the more expensive path of repair, but recommended the lesser.  To me that speaks volumes!!!  They are here for their customer's best interest not their just their money.  Try them out and see if I'm wrong!

These guys are super nice and professional. A friend highly recommended this place to me, so I took my 2004 4Runner in because my A/C wasn't working very well and my car seemed a little more sluggish than usual. They said my A/C condenser was going bad. I compared their price to the dealer's and Pacific Automotive was a lot cheaper. They provided me transportation to and from work, and got it done in one day. As a woman, I felt very comfortable dealing with these gentlemen. I will definitely be taking my car to them from now on. Thank you Jim and Ron!

Been a customer for over 15 years. The owner listens to your issues and cares about the quality of his work. They'll describe problems in great detail and even show you the faulty parts. I don't go for extended warranties with dealerships as I'd rather just bring my vehicles here; it's almost a relief when the original warranty expires as I often don't trust dealerships anymore! Finding a mechanic you trust is priceless. I highly recommend this shop.

I am so happy to have found an honest shop near my house. I live in P.B and my Chrysler Sebring started to leak coolant bad. If that is not bad enough the exhaust pipe came loose when I drove over a pot hole. I was so worried that the repairs were going to cost more than what my 2005 car with 200 thousand miles on it. I found them trough my friend went there Jim was so helpful he looked for the parts and located them the whole thing cost me 375.00 which is great. They have customer for life now. I will highly recommend them to everyone

I've never seen an auto place have such good customer service. A while back I made a "dumb-dumb" move pulling out of my driveway and knocking my driver side mirror off with a giant bird of paradise.  Quickly grabbing some duct tape I taped it back on to be more official with the ghettoness of my poor car.  It's actually amusing that the boo-boos on my car are all on the driver side...I mean I can't even claim bad dept-perceptive here!  Ah well...I'll just admit I suck and move on.  Self-infective wounds are better than to others!
