“John's Automotive has been servicing our business and personal vehicles for the last six years. The location is very convenient to our home, biz, and Kaiser Vandever if we're stuck there for something. John himself is very personable and takes a lot of pride in doing a great job. The office staff and technicians are helpful and excellent at keeping you updated on your vehicle's progress. Their prices are very fair, they can get you in quickly if it's a pressing issue, and they're able to provide dealership-quality service on quirky car issues at a much lower cost. They look at the things that you would see as a problem as more of a challenge and they will not rest until they get it fixed. Go to John's!” -- Bree Z.
