San Francisco Auto Repair Center
Very disappointing. Embodies car service shadiness. After robbing me of 1 hour of my life they gave me a quote that was 2x his initial "range" and also 2x two other quotes I've already gotten.Details: I knew I needed new brakes because the Toyota service told me so after an inspection at my last checkup. I've been getting quotes for the work, already had 2 other quotes (both right around $300, both took less than 5 minutes to give me the quote) and walked in to SF Auto Repair (this place) to get a third quote for my new brake pads.Gary at the front desk said he needed to do his own inspection to provide me with a quote. I asked him if he could give me a range and he responded $250 (I gave him make model and year - which is normally sufficient). Rough quote sounded good to me, so I came back the following day with the car to do the inspection he insisted on (that I really didn’t want or need). After one hour (again, this compares to 5 minutes at 2 other places) he told me $606. That's more than 2x what he indicated the previous day, about 2x my other two quotes and after taking 1 hour of my day AND taking all of my contact information (again, other places don't do that).I don't have a problem with businesses having different pricing. There are low cost and higher cost businesses - all have a place. But the practice of holding a car hostage for an hour for something that could be done far far faster, plus giving a low ball indication that isn't even close (despite having all the information beforehand), plus taking all personal contact information is one good example why some car repair shops have a bad reputation.If you want to support an honest and straightforward car repair shop - this isn't one of them!
I would highly recommend San Francisco Auto Repair Center to a friend. They were friendly and answered all questions I had regarding my repairs. The wait time was minimal.
One thing that's hard to find in a mechanic is honesty. These guys are great. I took my car in because the guys who changed my oil said I had a leaky oil pan gasket. I took it to San Francisco Auto Repair Center, and he took a look at it and told me 'somebody' had just loosened all the bolts. He tightened them up and didn't charge me a thing, saving me a couple hundred dollars. I have been here a couple times and they are real straight shooters.
These people dont know what they are doing.my car has been there for almost a month an my car is not fixed.i just think its alot of games back an forth i have been told every week it will be done next week or give me another week.dont waste time with them

We were very pleased with the service, our truck broke down and we called SF Auto Repair, they connected us with a tow company and in just a couple of hours we were back on the road....This place is legit and didn't take advantage.
The folks at Metropolitan Motors are the best. They remember you, do good work, and have very fair fees. I've been going to them for over 40 years and they have taken excellent car of my cars.
AK helped me figured out exactly what problem I have with my Mercedes. The mechanics are friendly and helpful and the repair cost was fair. I would recommend this mechanic shop to everyone in San Francisco.
I've gone to Metropolitan motors for more than two years. Lawton is friendly and knowledgeable, and they seem to be able to fix most things and sometimes have better prices than elsewhere and can do stuff like new tires and DMV reg that other shops can't. Meagan was great but isn't at the downtown location anymore. Steve could never replace her level of customer service unfortunately. That's the good stuff, but I'm not sure that I'll be going back to them anymore. It seems like the last five times I've been something new crops up, some problem like check engine light or wheel bearings will show up just the day after and its annoying. First few times I thought oh well that happens... but after so many times it starts to look like a real pattern. :-( one car is old, the other only 35k miles so can't say why but it is odd.
Lawton and his group are wonderful. Honest, trustworthy and tons of integrity.
Metropolitan Motors is amazing. The staff is friendly and is always willing to help no matter what automotive issue I have. They try to get the best deal and you are never afraid of being ripped off. I would highly recommend.
Sunrise Auto Service
Professional auto technicians, honest and hard working. I no longer live in SF but still drive 30 miles to get my car serviced there. I have been going to Sunrise auto for over 15 years.
Been going here almost two years now and they are reasonably priced and do good work.
Great Neighborhood Auto Shop. These guys know their stuff and seem to be pretty fair and honest
Great price for SMOG CHECK, and regular maintenance jobs.
This garage is great, the staff are very friendly, they charge very reasonable and fair prices. I have been going to them for a year now and highly recommend them!
