Always courteous and even fun, these folks give dependable service, thoughtful conversation without pressure, and efficiently live up to their promises. I've found them trustworthy for almost twenty years with two different volvos. Couldn't ask for more.

As always - Model Garage was super efficient and able to get my car in and out quickly. Don helped me prioritize what needed to be done NOW and what could wait a bit. Thanks!

I've been trusting you guys -- with my life, essentially -- for more than 20 years now, and I can't imagine ever using another garage. I recommend you to friends any chance I get. One of the things I appreciate most -- as a single mom with limited income -- is that you are always honest with me about whether or not I should put money into my older car. I love that you have the same mechanic work on the same cars over time, and I love that my car is taken care of by a woman (you go, Gail!). You have excellent service and stand by your work. Once or twice (over all these years) something wasn't perfect when I picked up the car, or something happened right away (bad brake pad once or something like that, and the recent weird tire episode) and you just took care of it and didn't charge me. You guys are the best! I have no idea what the bathroom looks like, but for me and my car, that's not what counts. :-)

Great service, plenty of heads up for additional repairs, courteous, and very nice.

The Model Garage is fantastic! Everyone there is kind, funny, knowledgeable, thoughtful, smart, and clear. Don helped me to buy my first car and has kept me -- and everyone else in my family -- safe for years! I love knowing that I can go to The Model Garage and completely trust whatever they say without question. Whenever I have a question I call and ask and they are always friendly and happy to teach me about how my car works! I feel so lucky to have a place like The Model Garage where I can send my car! Thank you!

It's a great place and I feel like they're watching out for me (and my budget). The location is perfect--near Ashby BART, but a short walk to downtown Berkeley. And, yes, the recommendation to have breakfast at Sconehedge worked out, too.

It's thursday 5 pm and my temp gauge is heading for the red zone. Called Don and he is there for me a little after closing for a quick diagnosis of split radiator. Friday afternoon and I'm good to go UNDER the estimated price.

car doctors supreme...and a sense of humor in caring for those "senior cars".

We've been taking our cars to the Model Garage for more than twenty years. Our 86' Volvo has over 350,000 miles. It's great having a neighborhood garage that we can depend on for servicing our cars. The work that is going to be performed is always clearly explained when we drop our cars off for servicing and we are always called if it is determined that additional work needs to be done. We always feel that we are getting outstanding, friendly, honest service.
