San Francisco Auto Repair Center
I would not recommend this shop. Brakes were working perfectly but the warning buzzer on my Lexus was sounding. So I had to get a (very high priced) diagnostic. I was told that there was a short and that I needed a Master cylinder. Got one installed (well over $1000). A year later, the buzzer sounded again. I was now told that the battery was weak and that I needed a new battery. However, after installation the buzzer continued to sound. I was told now that I needed ANOTHER master cylinder and that warranty on first had expired. The brakes themselves were still working perfectly. Unable to afford a new master cylinder I asked Gary if he could disconnect buzzer, he said ‘no’. Another shop disconnected buzzer free of charge. I have had no problems in the two years since since.
I have never been to an auto repair shop before so I honestly expected the worst. From what I have heard auto shops are shady at times. San Francisco Auto Repair is anything but that. Gary was very attentive and did EVERYTHING he could to help me out. I really appreciate that he made sure to call me and tell me exactly what was going on along the way. I would definitely bring my vehicle back to Gary at SF auto repair again. No question about that.
They charged almost double the amount for checking the checking engine light on my car.190$ to tell me that my car is low on oil. What is wrong with those people? AND they tried overcharging again, telling me that they would do the oil change for an additional 113$. Had I decided to do so with them, I'd be seriously overpaying. It's sooo expensive and they said they would charge 100$ more just to check the pressure on the tires, so the total was going to be almost 400$ total. I ended up paying 190$ and still left with nothing done to fix my car. As if things couldn't get any worse. Their customer service was the worst. The people were rude and weren't helpful at all. In my experience of going to shops to have my car looked at, I have Never EVER been ripped off like this. You leave this place feeling like garbage. You leave feeling that the people running this car shop took advantage of you. If you don't mind being ripped off and being taken advantage of, then this is the place for you! I WILL NEVER COME BACK TO THIS PLACE AGAIN.
Super helpful. Handled everything with the insurance company. Car looked beautiful. Special shout out to Steve Villanueva!!!!
This review is strictly for smog check + certificate. I was quoted $50 but mentioned google and only paid $45. You're and in and out in less than 10mins. Henry was very helpful. I think I've been getting ripped off at other places. Smog checks here from now on...
WOW, we were 3 older women caught in the worst rain storm in SF history, on the freeway and our engine is burning-up. We took Bryant exit and stopped immediately--without knowing, in front of Metropolitan Motors. Frantically I went in to get help. They were amazing! Lawton came out to help us and told us we needed to tow the car. We live in Napa. Steve, the receptionist called a nearby car rental. We decided, why not leave the car with them? These guys were authentic, caring about us, and honest. What more could we ask. Within the hour we were back on the road to Napa. Returned 2 days later with a fair estimate of work and detailed notes on the car that now runs great! I love this place--so rare to get this kind of help AND service. Thanks you guys--you're fabulous, wish I lived in S.F. so I could use you more often!
Friendly staff, and professional service. Would recommend.
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.
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!
