The Model Garage mechanics were so helpful! They fixed my car the same morning that I called, were friendly - even stored my bike in their office while I walked to the store - and gave me a head's up on important information above and beyond what I had asked them to look over. Their fee was modest and they certainly created goodwill with me.
I had a great experience with Don and the crew at The Model Garage. We took in my '94 940 for a coolant leak. The mechanics at Model Garage ran a diagnosis and come back with a prompt response- and was able to seal it very affordably. I really appreciate their straight-forwardness and ability to work on it on the cheap. Just moved to the Bay Area and finding these guys was a shot in the dark for me. Glad I found someone trustworthy. Thanks guys.
I've been taking cars to Model Garage for probably 30 years...sometimes with urgent needs. I've always had professional, expert care of my car and my needs
Hi Don. Please tell Pete the car is running like a dream. The headlights will most likely have to wait, but it can't be helped.
Everyone who has a Volvo or a Toyota MUST love the people at Model Garage. I do. They are efficient, pleasant & fair.
What is the $70 charge for tow-in? I drove the car to the shop.
My family just bought a used Toyota SIenna van and needed to get several things done. We found the model Garage on Yelp and gave it a try. We were very happy with the courtesy and professionalism and our bill was very close to the estimate. Quick turnaround too! We'll be going back!
My 1977 Volvo 245 is fairly homely these days, but it runs great, thanks to the Model Garage's superlative service. The only drawback is that I have to replace the car with only one the MG supports. I won't switch garages!
I think this is a great option/communication tool.
You can trust these guys - we've been taking our cars (all Volvos) there for as long as we've been in Berkeley -that would be close to 30 years, I think - and we've always gotten trustworthy advice and service. It's one of our most treasured and appreciated neighborhood businesses.
