Wow. I don’t normally leave reviews, but I absolutely love this garage! They are truly honest great people and I am wholly relaxed and confident in leaving my vehicles to their repair. My older RAV4 and Tacoma pickup are carrying extended mileage but running quite perfectly now. Every question is answered honestly and completely, I’m never sold unnecessary services, and multiple times I’ve found that my actual charge was less than that which was originally quoted. Love love love and thank you!

Thank you so much for the comments, glad you were pleased with our service!

Great service at a fair price! Old school real auto service with down to earth honest management. A real hidden gem in the East Bay.

Jim, thank you for trusting us with your vehicle and for the nice words, we're happy that you are happy!

The service at Model Garage is always easy and excellent. The cost is what keeps me from a 5-star rating.

Really good work and fantastic people doing the work! I appreciate the effort to diagnose and then plan the best approach for the repairs. I am confidant my car is safe. Drives great. Glad I found the Model Garage as my repair shop previously used is closed.

The Model Garage is the best mechanic experience I've ever had. Every member of the staff I've interacted with is courteous, straight-forward, and honest--I fully trust them to do right be me. They take the time to explain things in a way that doesn't make you feel like an idiot, and as a woman who doesn't know much about cars I really value that and feel like they are trying to do a great job, not just railroad me and talk me into services I don't need.

Thank you for the kind words Jasmine, we appreciate your trust.

My car developed a weird and disconcerting mechanical problem - the radiator fan wouldn't stop running - on a Sunday (or course). When I called first thing on Monday morning, Robert answered my call, understood my problem, and told me I could bring my car right in. I did. Betsy was sympathetic, helpful, and offered care rental resources. They repaired the fan situation, did a few other things as part of the Spring-is-Here Special (new wiper blades, windshield coating, replacing tailgate struts), and got my car back to me that same day. Perfect.

Polite reception, clear communication, excellent service, easy to get there via BART. I have used them for years and wouldn’t consider changing.
