The inspector was prompt and unbelievably knowledgeable. Really helped me with my purchase decision as I was considering replacing the transmission on a 1998 Monterro. He called once the inspection was complete and gave my husband a full run through of the car and followed by sending the report later in the day. Awesome family business!

OLD SCHOOL SERVICE AND VALUE!!!
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
has earned a new customer in me...here's the story...
Auto shops get a bad rap because some of them are run by crooks, period. I was unlucky once to run into such a place. I went there for an AC charge, got talked into struts...was promised OEM stuff (not what I got)...and one lie
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
to another...almost sued them.
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
has renewed my faith in independent shops.
My car is a 2001 Toyota Avalon that I treat like gold. When it needed a timing belt and a new axle, I brought it to
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
. Got sick of traveling to Precision Toyota in Tucson. After the initial belt replacement, the "check engine" light remained on. And the car had some major pulling issues after the axle replacement. I thought to myself, "Here we go again with independent mechanics..."
Well, I came in and got to know
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
...who gave me a free rental for a couple days over the weekend in case there were any safety issues (Initial work was on 7/18/14, completed 7/21/14). The following Monday, I talked with
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
, the shop manager, who had highly touted the shop and their head mechanic,
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
. I was not real happy...and she could appreciate my problems...first time in and it seemed to all go wrong.
Then they showed the "old school magic".
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
found out the reason the check engine light was coming on. The belt they had put in had a slightly different calibration from the original Toyota belt...at least for my model and year. So, they got the authentic one and reinstalled it. Problem solved!!
The pulling issue remained...and there were some weird noises too. All of this got worse AFTER he put in a new axle. This really peaked my skepticism. It turned out to be pure coincidence. After some clever thinking by
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
and
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
, they checked my strut mounts. Sure enough, there was the problem!!!
The crook that did my struts years ago? He supposedly replaced those, but he didn't. No problem,
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
put in new ones, replacing both the strut mounts in the front. All the noise and pulling?? COMPLETELY GONE!!!
My Avalon is back to the way it used to be. They found a problem that had been bugging me for years...getting progressively worse...and the Toyota dealers had no clue!!!
You can guess where I bring my car from now on....
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
!!! If you want old school service...to get treated like family...you just come here!!! You will be very glad you did!!
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
and his crew are top notch!!! A breath of fresh air, old school treatment in a world that doesn't seem to understand what that means anymore. Thank you,

I have used
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
twice in
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
and once in West Sac. Each time they have been efficient, polite, and professional. I will look to them first for my next
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
check. They can process the DMV renewal for a fee. This is not true of all
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
sites.

Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
came to my house to do a jump start on my car & provide advice on it's repair.
As it would take more work & money to repair the car than it was worth he advised against any repair work.
He didn't want ot charge anything , but i gave him $20 for his advice & time.
It's good & rvery are to find an HONEST CAR MECHANIC like

!

Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
runs a professional, one-man shop. I have used him for all kinds of services, from timing belts to brakes. He does his work well, reliably, and at reasonable cost. He's the best in the valley as far as I'm concerned.

The inspection was great.

showed me many things that were incorrectly completed and how I could fix them. He walked me through the entire house and advised me sale fixes and warned me about the not so

Honest and customer-friendly:
Bill Nibur was recommended by my neighbors - he lives in our town and has quite a following here, it appears. At any rate, my diesel's glow plug warning light started blinking while my teenage son was driving thecar. I decided that this was a problem serious enough to have the car towed to Bill's shop. Bill told me someone would look at the car immediately upon its arrival and he would get back to me with a diagnosis. Within a few hours Bill did get back to me to let me know what he thought the problem was and that it was a
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
fix and that he spent almost no time on it and therefore would not be charging me for
it! Zero! I think you could say that this mechanic is honest.
And, after telling me that, he told me he would have two of his guys drive my car back to my house, which they did by the end of the day! Apparently, he often does this for my neighbors. Not sure if I should be sharing that info widely, because we don't want to
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
that benefit, but it just illustrates Bill's positive, customer-friendly approach.

The waiting room is airconditioned and very clean the staff and mechanics are nice and seem very fair .I don't feel im being taken advantage of when im there the way i have felt in the past at other mechanics. I have taken my car there a few times in the past 14 months and everytime i do i feel that i am getting good service and a good deal .I would recommend this shop to anyone seeking car repair shop ,they also have other auto service needs.

I called in advance to see if they were very busy, and they said they could get me in within 10-15 minutes. I went right over and they talked with me right away to square away the paperwork. I was out the door 20 minutes later, so they were able to service my car even sooner than they had promised. This was the second time I used them, and both times were efficient, courteous, and inexpensive.

For years we've had our car serviced at a nearby garage, but they charge the same price as the dealerships charge. A friend had a repair on her car at
Campo Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
last year and they seemed really good, so I called for a price on upcoming service on my car and they quoted me a price that was considerably less than what I was expecting, so I had the work done there. Nice people, the car was finished earlier than promised, and saved me money! I will definitely take my car there from now on.
