  • "We have used Pats for years now and I can' tell you how great it is to have a mechanic you can trust. They have saved me and my family many times over. I've had many times when I took my vehicle in to get diagnosed and of course it ran fine and they didn't charge us. Alex at the front desk is very friendly and professional. I can' say enough good things about my dealing with them over the last ten years."

  • "My truck had an intermittent stalling issue that two other well-regarded shops couldn't repair, because they couldn't reproduce the problem. Pat's was able to diagnose and fix it perfectly, when I was just about to give up. I highly recommend this shop."

    Jesse Bo Widmark from Santa Maria, CA

  • "Alex and Pat are so honest at Pat’s Auto, that they referred me back to the place where my original warranty and repairs were completed versus making a ton of money from me for parts and repair. Honest, trustworthy, and knowledgeable- I am quite impressed. Thanks Pat’s! Joe"

  • "I had my 2012 Toyota Camry serviced two days ago. I had some concerns about how my car was driving and it had some noise coming from the brakes when in reverse. The mechanic spent an entire day trying to find anything wrong with my car. He was able to find a small rock that was wedged between my rotor and caliper and made sure it didn't do any damage to my brakes, rotors and components. He also noticed my battery was very weak and it will need to be changed soon. Other than that he said he couldn't find anything else wrong with the car. They ended up only charging me for finding the rock and and checking the brakes and components. Even though they spent the entire day on my car, they chose not to charge me a labor charge after not being able to find anything wrong with the car. They told me to contact them again if something does come up with my car. I was so pleased with their generosity, professionalism and customer service. A special thanks to Antonio Carreno for explaining everything to me and for not charging me a diagnostic fee. You guys are awesome!"
