My office moved recently. As such, I am now again within "striking distance" from SFCS. I am happy about this as I had taken vehicles to SFCS / Matt P in past with great results. I have always been happy with their service. I was "lucky enough" to unavoidably run over something recently in my BMW. Almost immediately, I heard nasty sounds from the transmission. Wanting a shop I knew I could trust when a large repair may be in store, I made sure I got it to Matt (especially given the aforementioned "striking distance"). Well, worst fears were confirmed...a split in the trans case. Matt was good about getting me in right away, working with me and my insurance, suggesting other repairs and maintenance that may be advantageous to consider while the transmission was being removed and replaced, and finally, he had the car done in less than three working days. Matt is more than happy to discuss the repairs with you, show you on your car why the repairs are warranted and show you the removed parts. He appreciates that you are interested and involved. I noticed some of the other reviews mention concerns for price and possible unwarranted up sell. However, I choose to have sports cars. Moreover, it is the cheap (not the prudent) man that will wind up paying more. I know a fair amount about cars and Matt has always suggested (not pressured) reasonable repairs and maintenance that are consistent with the repairs and maintenance undertaken. He let me know my options and I chose the ones I believed would be a good idea. In addition, if a mechanic who knows what he is doing charges more than the cheapest rate in the market, I would offer that is money well spent as compared to misdiagnosed, improper or unwarranted repairs. Their shop has been family owned for close to 50 years. Why would they screw up a thriving, ethical business for an up sell? None of my repairs or maintenance at SFCS have been misdiagnosed, improper or unwarranted. Their shop has been family owned for close to 50 years. Why would they screw up a thriving, ethical, local business for an up sell? Finally, they are located near the Evelyn VTA stop and the MV Cal-Train station, so you have the option for local public transportation. SFCS has a loyal customer in me.
