Dan and the team at San Ramon Auto Repair provide quality care of our 2001 BMW. Dan's expertise and experience are unparalleled. He is able to quickly and accurately diagnose any problem that our vehicle is having and repair it. However, the attribute that we appreciate most about San Ramon Auto Repair is the level of trust that we have in Dan and his team.

We have been going to San Ramon auto for years. Currently all our family and friends look to Dan when we have car issues. My car is OLD, but Dan and his staff has always taken care of us and sure my car is safe and running well even at 200k miles. Over the years we have recommend this shop to many people and they have never been disappointed. Dan has always been honest when diagnosing problems and really reasonable with cost. As long as he’s in business we will continue to have our vehicles serviced here. High recommend.

In a day and age when customer service seems to have become an afterthought, San Ramon Auto Repair far exceeded this first-time customer's expectations. The owner Dan and team provided a level of outstanding service and professionalism rarely seen these days. Our car had to be towed to their shop and they kept us informed along the way about the status of the car and needed repair. We were never left to wonder, which we appreciated greatly. The cost of repair was also far less than we anticipated and our car now runs great! Highly recommended!!!

I took my Fiat to them due to the great ratings this shop has, and i was not disappointed one bit. I had to have a water pump replaced and they did an amazing and quick job. I had some lights turn on a few days later for the oil change even though it had been serviced by them as well and Dan ran the machine on my Fiat and I was expecting to be charged since some other shops like to nickel and dime the customer for any little thing. He did not charge me for running the machine which i was quite pleasantly surprised. He has definitely earned a customer.

Dan the Owner and his hard working mechanics are 100% the best Auto Repair Shop this Tri Valley-San Ramon has to offer. Dan has been servicing my car for 8 years. They are very trustworthy. He provides a diagnoses and repair that I can feel safe. I believe his suggestions and advice. He is very fair in pricing. I always leave there with a feeling I was taken care of and my repair was spot on perfect. I would not go to anyone else. Tyson his greeter best friend Dog makes the whole experience delightful. Again- Trustworthy, honest and provides excellent service/repair to your car.

Well, all this time on the internet and I am writing my first review of anything, anywhere. But when you come across a business as rare as San Ramon Auto Repair, sometimes you do find that rough diamond in the rough that breaks all rules. I am an ex Navy vet 89'-96' USS Shasta FC2 and worked on the CIWS Phalanx Block 0, so as a passion I love to talk shop with anything surrounding electrical mechanical things. Aside from the numerous awesome reviews of this shop on Yelp, what really sold me to bring my car in was a simple phone call with Dan about my car and what needed to be done. I had mis-firing problem going on in my engine and a leaky A/C system. When I talked with Dan over the phone, his knowledge was amazing! It was very apparent that not only does he have experience, but he continues to always educate himself and stays current with products on the market and cars in general. He educated me over the phone in a manner that was both genuine, confident, and kind. I brought my car in after making an appointment and had the pleasure of talking more with Dan. We had an interesting discussion about Slick 50 and its brief history and the cause of it's demise and talked about the approach he was going to take with my car, which brings me to fact #2 about Dan. Dan's philosophy isn't just about 'fixing' your car via standard protocol, his philosophy is fixing only what needs to be fixed based on your unique situation. This alone sets Dan apart from most of the other mechanics out there. He will go above and beyond and find the most cost effective solution to get you to where you need to be with your car. The third and last fact which shows me his dedication to his profession was his choice in aftermarket products like fuel injector cleaner and lubricants. After listening to him talk about these products and then seeing the choice he has made and recommends, he is truly a professional amongst professionals as a car mechanic and his dedication to his profession. As a side note, I ended up using the products he recommended in my car and I can feel and hear the difference they are making in my car. (I will leave it up to you to talk to him to find out what he recommends). In conclusion, within a few hours my mis-firing problem was fixed, my A/C system was repaired and all at a cost I was expecting to be at least a few hundred dollars more than what I paid. I welcome and challenge anyone to shop around for a mechanic to discuss your current problem and add San Ramon Auto Repair to the list of shops you call. I guarantee you will not find a more dedicated car mechanic who also cares very much about his customers than Dan. Now Tyson?!?!?!?! He is just icing on the cake and just too much fun to play with. I hope this review helps everyone out there.
