I have found this auto repair shop to be professional and honest. Their service is a bit on the pricey side compared to some other private mechanics, but I'm willing to pay a little more for the convenience of having a competent mechanic located within a few blocks of my office. I can drop off the vehicle in the morning, walk to work and then pick it up at the end of the day without having to worr...

I have taken my vehicle to Made in Japan many times.  However this time I couldn't as the person who ran the diagnostic machine was only able to work on Tuesday.  Also they do not offer any shuttle service and I would have had to sit in the lounge for many hours with my dog.  I have always in the past thought they did a great job but this time the early closing time, not working on week-ends, limi...

Very well. See above.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Timing belt replacement. Car over 20 years old. I emailed the business for some background information regarding the procedure, especially because my car was so old. Gary, got back with me via email by the next morning. He explained prices and what would be included. Got my car in right away. He made a detailed list of what needed to be fixed now and what would need to be fixed soon. Then he emailed the entire list so I could see what needed to be fixed and the price. We agreed on the most important things to be fixed right away. They had to keep the car overnight, but, had it ready within a couple hours the next morning. They were very courteous, professional and I would recommend to a friend. Thanks Gary.

A+ in every aspect.  Phil and Gary are very personable in their specialty towards everything short of auto body work.  For details see above.  Excellent job!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
My shifter would not move out of park when I depressed the brake pedal.  I had high centered the vehicle climbing the road I live in last winter and the pins in the connector of the shift assembly to the right of the handle detached.  They found this out in a couple of hours and promptly called to address whether I would take the chance on surgery or go ahead and replace the entire assembly for over a thousand dollars.  They offered a metric of 50% chance it would work and shift out of park without issue anymore.  It has succeeded in fixing the problem so far.  They even showed me a diagram and advised me that my main air conditioner belt had serious wear marks after 90k miles.  Their professionalism is a good as I have seen in my 300k miles of lifetime driving and countless repair shop visits all over California.  Phil and Gary are true partners who care!
